Setting up a TFC server on your computer takes a few extra steps. Here's a tutorial for setting up a basic server.
Step 1 - TFC v79Edit
Create an empty folder for your server, eg. "C:\MyServer". Run Forge, choose "install server", and change the directory to your newly created folder.
In your server folder, create a new folder called "mods". The path should be thus be "C:\MyServer\mods". Now place the TFC .jar-file as it is into the mods folder.
Create a new file in your server directory with the name "server.bat". Open it with a text-editing program and add the line below, save, and run it once.
- java -Xmn1G -Xms2G -Xmx2G -jar forge-1.7.10-10.13.1.1217-universal.jar
Note: Make sure you are using the correct version of Forge, or edit the above line to the version you are currently using.
Once this is done, the server should start up, but might shut down again. This might be due to Mojang's new server license. When you have run the server once, a new file should appear in your server directory: "eula.txt". Open this file, and (after having read the terms for the EULA), change the line "eula=false" to "eula=true".
Save and close the file, and run it. If performed correctly, this should start up your TFC server from your computer. Players on both LAN and internet can join your server, however if you are behind a router, you probably need to port forward the server before players can join over internet.
