Which Forge is "Best"

Recommended Posts

I am putting a new 1.7.10 Forge pack together, and I'm wondering about which build of Forge I should use. What is the latest stable build that is considered "best"?

Search function seems broken, my apologies if this has been answered a few dozen times.

The "best" version of Forge is the one which:

  1. Works well with all the mods included in your pack.
  2. Works well with your chosen server process. If you intend on using Forge as your server then you will be fine regardless. If you plan on using Cauldron/KCauldron then you would want to use a version of Forge in the client which works well with that server JAR.

Gotcha. I'll pick the latest common denominator that all the mods like. 

Not doing Cauldron, but will be using mcmyadmin, have it running now in my test pack. It's awesome.

Sorry, half offtopic....

You have mcmyadmin running with a custom modpack? How did you manage to do so? have you by any chance some sort of information or link to that?

First I made sure my pack worked without issues as a regular Forge modpack. Then I installed mcmyadmin, and chose ForgeMod as the mod type. I also went into mcmyadmin.conf and set how much ram to use. I turned off the mcmyadmin service, and copied my whole server modpack folder into the Minecraft folder in the mcmyadmin directory (I run windows, it was C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Mcmyadmin\minecraft for me) I then renamed my forge.jar file to forgemod.jar. I started the mcmyadmin service, and it started the modpack up for me after several minutes. 

I logged into my router, and port forwarded port 8080 (the default port) to my internal server IP. I can now access the mcmyadmin panel anywhere. I even installed the iphone app, and I can monitor the server there too. 

 

***Few caveats about this... It doesn't work with Forge Essentials. Much of the functionality is for Bukkit and other things. It's still very useful, just be aware that you can't whitelist users, change permissions, or use plugins from the mcmyadmin menus.  You CAN access the console and use forge commands there, however. Checking into FERemoteClient to how that works in comparison***

*** update ***

I removed and waiting for version 3. Hopefully there will be better forge support.

After I tweak it awhile, I plan on making it public. First I need to remove lots of extra copper and other ores that many mods generate, and make a pretty spawn. I plan on using Forge Essentials for some sort of spawn protection.
