Glixyl MoSMP v3.3 – Minecraft 1.2.5/1.3 Auto-Installer and Server

Glixyl MoSMP v3.3 is finally released.  There are bugfixes that make it worthwhile to do a fresh install using the auto-installer.  Or, you can simply patch your existing MoSMP client and/or server using the method in the post below this one.

WHY SHOULD I UPGRADE?:

  • Repairs Nether portals
  • Adds content to the Twilight Forest dimension
  • Fixes Netherrocks textures that were previously messed up in the Lite client version

CLIENT VERSIONS: (NOTE– You can install this mod pack over a unmodified/fresh Minecraft 1.3 install.  Your /mods and /config directory should be empty before you install.  Ignore the warning about it not being 1.2.5 and install.)

  • Lite – 64-bit textures, Fast graphics quality (Suggested for most computers.  Works well on Windows, MacOS and Linux) – download link
  • Medium – 128-bit textures, extra HD textures, Lite shaders, Fancy graphics quality (For gaming workstations and laptops) – download link for Nvidia graphics users (tested), download link for ATI Radeon users (update to Beta Catalyst drivers to eliminate transparency issues), download link for MacOS (let me know how this works and revert to the Lite version above if you have issues).
  • Ultra – 256-bit textures, more HD textures, Ultra shaders, Fancy graphics, DOF, Motion Blur, Mipmapping (For extreme gaming and graphics workstations only.  Featured in my HD Glixyl MoSMP videos) – Nvidia download link, ATI Radeon download link
INSTALL:  It is assumed that you understand the basics of using a computer and backing up/restoring files.  I do not take responsibility if you delete your computer on accident. 🙂
  1. Start with an untouched copy of Minecraft 1.2.5/1.3 (or for those upgrading from Glixyl MoSMP v3.2(.1), you need to delete your .minecraft/mods and .minecraft/config folders before attempting to install over v3.2).  NOTE** If you have a modded Minecraft client, you can also just erase your .minecraft folder after backing it up; then use the Minecraft launcher to get a fresh copy of Minecraft 1.2.5.  The Minecraft game files are located in %appdata%/.minecraft
  2. Unzip the contents of Glixyl-MoSMPv3.3-client version to a directory.  This is usually done by selecting the file and right-clicking to select ‘extract the contents to a directory..’, depending on the operating system.
  3. Run the program called ‘MoSMPv3.3 Installer’.  This is usually done by right-clicking the file and selecting (on Windows) ‘Open with->Java(TM) Platform SE Binary’. (or just double-click it)
  4. Because the mods require more Java heap than standard, especially the Java client, it is highly-suggested that you allocate at least 2GB of heap (RAM).  I have included a batch file that you should be able to copy to your desktop and run called “minecraft launch from desktop for more RAM.bat”.  You should be able to simply copy it to your desktop and double-click in on Windows to start up Glixyl MoSMP v3.3!  (On MacOS and Linux- just Google for how to add more memory to Minecraft)
SERVER: – download link
  1. Download and extract the contents of the Glixyl MoSMP v3.3 server zip.
  2. If you are not upgrading from Glixyl MoSMP v3.2 on an existing server, skip to step 4.
  3. Copy the ‘world’ directory from your existing Glixyl MoSMP v3.2 server and any server configuration files that you have edited into the new Glixyl MoSMP v3.3 server directory.
  4. Start the server by selecting the appropriate batch file for your installed version of Java.  ** By default, I allocate 2GB of heap to the server.

MODS:

  • Equivalent Exchange 2
  • MoCreatures v3.6.2
  • Twilight Forest 1.10.1
  • Optifine Smooth (I didn’t update this because there are Forge dependencies)
  • Forge
  • CraftGuide/Quickguide (Hit ‘G’ key in-game for all recipes)
  • ModLoader/AudioMod
  • Rei’s Minimap (Hit ‘M’ key in-game for map options.  Hit ‘Z’ to zoom map)
  • SonicEther’s Unbelievable Shaders
  • Jammy’s Furniture Mod v3.6
  • SimpleOres
  • Netherrocks (textures fixed for netherrock ores)
  • IronChests
  • InvTweaks
  • MAtmos sound v12 with weapon enhancements (adds all kinds of sounds to the game)
  • Animal Bikes v2

TROUBLESHOOTING:

  • If you are getting errors upon loading such as block conflicts, make sure that your /mods folder only contains one Twilight Forest mod.  You want to keep the 1.10.1 version and delete the 1.9.1 if that is the case.
  • If you are suffering performance issues on the Medium or Ultra client, change your texture pack to a 64-bit one and set graphics to FAST and trees to FANCY so the waving leaves look better.  Also lowering the render distance can help.
  • The Medium and Ultra versions of the client are known to have some visual artifacts during weather and sometimes when placing torches.  The ATI version supposedly fixes this, with a coming fix for Nvidia.
  • The textures for some monsters in this version of Mo Creatures mod are flawed and cannot be fixed until all the mods in this pack support Forge 3.3.8 or above; which is not currently the case.
  • You can install MoSMP v3.3 client versions over top of one another.  For instance, if you install Ultra and its too slow; install Medium over top and vice-versa.  You should also be able to install MoSMP v3.3 over top of a Minecraft 1.3 client after it is released.
