Tekkit server mac


Recommended Posts

On a mac you don't need to delete advanced machines or nether ores. I use a mac all the time and to run a tekkit server you will need to install Java 7 as funny enough the tekkit launcher only works with Java 6 and the tekkit server only works with Java 7. To check your installed java versions, open the java-preferences program (spotlight it) and see if you have the required java versions and if they are turned on. If you don't have java 7, download and install it from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7u7-downloads-1836441.html . If you already have it, make sure it is turned on and standing at the top of the list as that will then be the preferred java version when a java program launches. From that moment on you should have no trouble starting and using the server. If you want to play on the same computer as you run the server on, you should (while your tekkit server is already on) switch back to java 6 in your java-preferences and then start the tekkit launcher. Skipping this step will constantly crash your launcher -_-.

The method is a bit unhandy bit as far as I know it is the only way to have both programs running on mac. I use version 10.8.2 . Tell me if it worked for you :D

P.S. If you delete only these 2 mods you will miss this and this

is there anyway to run a server and play at the same time?

so can i use java 6 and 7 at the same time?

Yes, you can run a server and play at the same time by editing your java preferences while the server is already on. So first start the server with java 7 and then leave the server on while you switch your preferences back to java 6 and then you can start the client while the server is also running:)

its included in the essentials plugin



you of course have to make a new text file and write in:


cd "$(dirname "$0")"

exec java -Xmx1G -Xms1G -jar tekkit.jar

then select: convert to plain text

then save it as: start.command

then open terminal and type in: chmod a+x

then use spacebar after the a+x and drag the start.command file into the terminal window,press enter and run start.command

have fun :P
