This guide will help you with creating a server pack from the client files.

Modpacks are community-created modifications to Minecraft that alter the gameplay and visual aspects. A modpack contains several individual mods that work together to create a new experience.

You can also create your modpacks by setting up your mods list instead of choosing a pre-existing one.

To set up your server with any modpack, you will have to first create a server pack for it, meaning the files you directly upload to your server to get the modpack working. Keep in mind that the server pack is different from the files found on your client for any modpack.

NOTE: You first need to verify that you can run the modpack on your client, even generate a world and play, otherwise the modpack will not work on the server for sure!
NOTE: If the modpack you are using already has a server pack, follow this guide here!


❓ Finding Modpacks ❓

Minecraft modpacks can usually be found under one of the following:

Twitch/ CurseForge
ATLauncher
Feed the Beast
Technic Launcher
Voids Wrath

Each of the ones mentioned above is providing specific modpacks which can be found only on their specific page.
Also, each of the ones mentioned above is providing its launcher to install the modpacks they provide.


πŸ” Finding Your Client Modpack Files πŸ”

To create the server pack you will have to first locate your client modpack files.

Depending on the launcher you are using, the modpack files will be found in different paths on your machine.

πŸ“‚ How to Create the Server Pack πŸ“‚

Now, that you found your client modpack files you can proceed to create the server pack.

You will have to follow the next steps to do so:

Create a folder on your PC to put the server pack in. We are going to name it server_pack.

server_pack


Copy the mods and config folders from your client modpack files into the server_pack folder.

Local Files
Server Pack Folder


Some mods generate their structures, scripts, resources, or other folders and those should be added to your server pack besides the ones mentioned above.

So if you find any of the following folders in your local modpack files you will need to paste them too into the server_pack folder:

Scripts
Resources
Llibrary
structures
Flans
bluemap
dynmap

Usually, if a folder has the same name as one of the mods from the server you need to paste it into the server_pack too. Some examples are the Dynmap, Flan, and Bluemap mods.


Remove client-side mods from the mods folder (like CustomMainMenu, Damage Indicators, etc.).

Here is our guide explaining what client-side mods are.


Remove any config file from the config folder for the client-side mods you removed in the last step.


Verify if your modpack has any world-generation mod, like Biomes O' Plenty, Botania, or Biome Bundle.

If so, you need to create a new txt file in your server_pack folder named server.properties.txt, open it, and paste the line below updating it according to the level-type your mod needs to generate the proper world. Then, remove the .txt at the end of the file.

level-type=biomesoplenty

server.properties.txt

level-type

server.properties

NOTE: Each of the world-generating mods requires a different level type. You need to put the correct one according to the mod you are using.

Those are just some examples of world-generations mods and the level-type they need:

Botania: level-type=botania-skyblock
Biome Bundle: level-type=OTG

Here is our guide explaining about the Botania mod, here the one explaining about the Biome Bundle mod, and here the one telling about Biomes O' Plenty


Done! You just created a server pack from your client modpack files.

Now you can upload the server pack you made to your server, open your Multicraft panel, select the Forge/ Fabric version you want to run, and start the server.
