This is part 1 out of 2. Second part will be made after shown interest. In the second part, i will show how you setup Spongeforge for Modpacks. Around 2 years ago i posted 2 guides for setting up Modpack, where you could run plugins. Sadly, we can't run or normal bukkit plugins as we use to. So we have to use Sponge/Spongeforge. Luckily, many developers have made a good amount of different plugins for us to use on these Spongeforge servers. Let's get started!! I recommend watching video first and then read guide if you didn't understand everything in guide. No audio.... Files needed: Spongeforge, i recommend using the recommended build for this: Spongeforge Forge, i will be using the Installer. It's a 1000 times easier, use recommended here too: Forge Installer This is the plugin i used: Chest refill and this is where you will find many plugins: Plugins Setup: Create folder on desktop etc "I called mine Server" and start the forge installer. Locate your "Server" folder on desktop and click Install server. It will download all files and extract them in the "Server" folder for you. Let's make a "Mods" folder, when created open folder and "Copy & Paste" the "spongeforge-1.12.2-2768-7.1.4.jar" file into it. Let's make a "Plugins" folder too. This is where we will be putting or plugins, that we downloaded from Sponge later on. "Seen in video too" finalizing Time to create two more files in the "Server" folder before we start. Create a text file and rename it to "start.bat" and make a "eula.txt". We will be putting this inside the "Eula.txt" write "eula=true" and save. This will just do so we won't have to wait on the server to create it for us and will make the startup seem faster. We will now be putting this text inside the "start.bat" file. "java -Xms1024M -Xmx4048M -jar forge-1.12.2-22.214.171.12468-universal.jar nogui pause" This is just a simple startup jvm code, same i used and same seen in video below. We will now be starting the server, and it should start without any trouble. After startup, stop the server by typing "stop". This will start the server and save the worlds. It's time to install the plugin inside the "Plugins" folder we created at the beginning, which where located in the "Mods" folder. It will be like installing a plugin for your bukkit server. Find plugin, download and put in plugins folder. When that is done, you can now start the server again and the console will be saying how many and which plugin was found and create it's config files. Config files are located in your main "Server" folder, under "config" folder. And then it's named after the "plugin" itself. "Seen in video" You are now done setting up your Forge server with plugins. Ask for if needed. Reply's may be slow.
