    Im really bad at intros so let me cut to the point can you use mods in multiplayer but not mods that add like ores or races i mean ones that let you like rename items for example or fly?

    yes, you can use mods in multiplayer as long as the Server and the Client have the same mods and same game version.
    If you're hosting the server and inviting your friends - they should have exactly the same mods like your server.
    And vice versa - if you're connecting to a server you should have the same mods running on the server in order to have guarantee that all things will work.

    Thanks Zortbg! I was going to have to research that one, but that's what I thought. Thanks for confirming my suspicions.

    Some mods are compatible with servers that don't have them in the way that you can still join the server, but if you encounter anything that the mod would have changed the game crashes. This happened to me at least.

    I have also encountered a issues with this. When using an armour mod that the server had yet to add. Although I could see my character on my own screen, but other players could not.

    Depends. Most of the customizable ones (I.e take it apart block by block do) because they still only use the base game assets.

    The easy way to tell is that if it adds new sprites, it won't work.

    I have added in new songs to play for the instruments, those still seem to work on multiplayer.

    We were having a Guess The Song game for like a half hour :p

    How do you add these mods to the server? is there a server mods file?

    The server plays off the assets folder of the person hosting the server. As for mod compatability, there's things to note. Certain things are handled by the server and others by the client, because of this there are infact mods that can transfer over to the server. Crafting recipes are held by the server, but manipulating data values just changes pointers which anyone in the server will be able to see the result of. However, it's not just the addition of sprites that will not work, addition of any extra data that the vanilla game doesn't have built in will cause the game to crash on attempting to load such data files.
