Custom LAN Port Mod – Add several multiplayer options into the LAN portion of your games, such as toggling PVP and animals!
Minecraft’s LAN options have been very lacking. You can’t even choose the lan port you want the server to be on, meaning that, in the case that you want to make your LAN server public to your friends over at their house, you will never be able to properly port forward the server because of the fact that the port changes every time you launch the LAN server.
That’s why theCustom LAN Port Mod was made. TheCustom LAN Port Mod is a mod who’s name says exactly what it does, in that this mod allows you to change the LAN port the server is hosted on. Don’t get this mod wrong, however. It also comes with a ton of other options as well, including mob spawning, pvp, and even flying. In a sense, this mod is a mod that makes the LAN server option about as full featured as a vanilla and bukkit Minecraft server.
This mod is useful for one time events that require a quick Minecraft server. For example, let’s say you are a fairly popular YouTuber, and your fans want to meet you. Rather than going through the hassle of opening a vanilla Minecraft server up, you could just install this mod, and share your public IP and port to your fans. After the event is done, you could just turn the LAN server off, and if you ever want to open it again without anyone else getting on, you can just change the port number.
All in all, this mod is great, and is recommended for you if you would like more options when it comes to LAN servers.
