Hey Guys. I really want this mod, it looks so cool and fun – but I can’t figure out how to install it correctly. I am trying to install it for SINGLE PLAYER. I do not want it to be installed for a server or anything like that. I use a Mac (Version 10.6.8), and I have the newest release of Minecraft (Minecraft 1.2.3).
Can you please help???? PLEASE???
Here is what I have done so far:
I have tried installing Modloader, ModloaderMP, and Forge while TooManyItems and REI’s MiniMap and Optifine’s Antilag mod are on. That didn’t work so I figured ‘Ok well I will uninstall my minecraft folder and run the game to get a fresh, clean, vanilla minecraft.’ So I did that. Now here is what I did afterwards, step-by-step.
1. Get a fresh, clean, and vanilla Minecraft with NO mods or texture packs installed whatsoever.
2. Watched some of YouTube tutorials on installing BuildCraft for Minecraft 1.2.3.
3. Re-downloaded ModLoader, ModLoaderMP, Forge (minecraftforge-client-18.104.22.168), and all of the BuildCraft zip files.
I now start to install the mods that BuildCraft requires (ModLoader, ModLoaderMP, and Forge).
4. I go to: /Users/johnwester/Library/Application Support/minecraft/bin
5. I select minecraft.jar and unzip it using Archive Utility (10.6)
6. I now have minecraft.jar (jar file), and minecraft (unzipped jar folder)
7. I delete minecraft.jar (jar file) and rename minecraft (unzipped jar folder) as minecraft.jar. This lets me access the jar folder.
8. After that, I go into minecraft.jar and delete the META-INF folder.
9. I now go to the ModLoader, unzip that, copy all the files and folders and paste them into minecraft.jar, replacing any already existing class files or folders
10. I do the same with ModLoaderMP. I unzip it, copy everything inside it, and paste them into minecraft.jar replacing any existing files.
11. Again, same as the two steps above, I unzip the Minecraft Forge (minecraftforge-client-22.214.171.124) and copy all files and folders, and paste them into minecraft.jar, replacing everything that already exists.
So now that I have installed all that, I start to install the BuildCraft files. KEY PART: I tried doing this two different ways. When the first way did not work, I repeated steps 1-11, and tried doing it another way. I will explain both.
Ok, I have all the mods installed that BuildCraft needs. I start installing BuildCraft.
12a. I unzip, buildcraft-client-A-core-3.1.4pre.zip, copy all the files and folders inside it, and paste them into minecraft.jar, replacing anything that already existed.
13a. I unzip, buildcraft-client-B-builders-3.1.4pre.zip, copy all the files and folders inside it, and paste them into minecraft.jar, replacing anything that already existed.
14a. I unzip, buildcraft-client-B-energy-3.1.4pre.zip, copy all the files and folders inside it, and paste them into minecraft.jar, replacing anything that already existed.
15a. I unzip, buildcraft-client-B-factory-3.1.4pre.zip, copy all the files and folders inside it, and paste them into minecraft.jar, replacing anything that already existed.
16a. I unzip, buildcraft-client-B-transport-3.1.4pre.zip, copy all the files and folders inside it, and paste them into minecraft.jar, replacing anything that already existed.
17a. I unzip, buildcraft-client-C-silicon-3.1.4pre.zip, copy all the files and folders inside it, and paste them into minecraft.jar, replacing anything that already existed.
Now, I startup Minecraft, login, and here comes the big problem: my Minecraft gets stuck on the ‘Done Loading’ screen. It is stuck on that for a while, so I figure that I didn’t install it right. So I repeat steps 1-11, and try a different method:
12b. I go to all of my BuildCraft packages (Core, Builders, Energy, Factory, Transport, and Silicon), HOWEVER, I DO NOT UNZIP THEM. Instead, I just copy all six of them, leaving them as .zip files./Users/johnwester/Library/Application Support/minecraft/
13b. I then proceed to past them into my mods folder.
I start up Minecraft, and still, I am stuck on ‘Done Loading’.
I tried both Method 1 and Method 2 countless times. After a while, Minecraft started saying: Would you like to update? Yes/No. This happened on both methods. So, I chose ‘Yes’ in both methods, and Minecraft said something like
ERROR (4): blahblahblahblahblah/lwjgl_util.jar or something like that. I can’t remember as I can’t find it in the logs. Anyways, I was like, ‘Ok….. what happens if I choose No?’ So, I chose ‘No’ in both methods. And guess what it brought me to? That’s right. ‘Done Loading’. This is right about the time something else occurred. ME RAGING ABOUT WHY THE FUCK I CAN’T INSTALL BUILDCRAFT!?!?!?!?!?
So. Now that you have seen what I have done to try to install BuildCraft, please help me.
How the hell do I install this? Am I doing something wrong? Or am I not doing something?

Buildcraft: I have installed all six: Core, Builders, Energy, Factory, Transport
buildcraft-client-C-silicon-3.1.4pre.zipMarch 15, 2012 at 7:50 pm #15235
Also, is BuildCraft compatible with the following mods:
Another question: If I am only installing BuildCraft for SSP (Survival Single Player)
will it still allow me to play Multiplayer without any problems?March 15, 2012 at 8:49 pm #15258
you dont need to unzip buildcraft at all just drop it into the mods folder
make sure you got ver 2 of sdk’s mlmp http://adf.ly/63Uo5
did you remember to delete meta-inf more specificly meta-inf/mojar_c*March 15, 2012 at 8:53 pm #15259
and yes buildcraft is compatatible with at least 2 of the 3 im not sure about anti-lag but im sure it since i run standard optifineMarch 15, 2012 at 8:55 pm #15260
I did not unzip buildcraft. on my second attempt, i just droped them in my mods section. And I will make sure I have ver 2 of mlmp. and I always delete META-INF when I install mods – I delete the whole META-INF folder.
Thanks for the help.
Does buildcraft work with Optifine, REI’s MiniMap, and TooManyItems?March 15, 2012 at 8:57 pm #15262
ok. I don’t know if it is called Optifine antilag. I think it is just called optifine -March 15, 2012 at 8:57 pm #15263
also remember to install the mods like tmi and OptiFine after you install forgeMarch 15, 2012 at 9:00 pm #15265March 15, 2012 at 9:01 pm #15266
And secondly, can I use Dokucraft with this?
Also please answer this (not tryin to be rude but I need to know before installing these) : Can I still play Multiplayer normally with BuildCraft on?March 15, 2012 at 9:11 pm #15269
im not sure about dokucraft,
and yes to install order
but after #3 run mc first w/o mods in mod folder or any other mods to make sure its running ok if it does then place buildcraft into mods folder
then you can try installing your other mods into mod folder or jar
usally after i got a working copy with forge installed i make a copy of that jar.
so i can revert back incase something went wrong and i usally also run mc after each time i install a new mod
read this as well
i would recommend this mod instead of tmiMarch 15, 2012 at 9:18 pm #15270
Why? What is wrong with TooManyItems? Do I need or should have it if I am going to have BuildCraft or are you just telling me its a cool mod I should get?
Also Does BuildCraft affect Multiplayer? I need to know thisMarch 15, 2012 at 9:31 pm #15274
nothing is wrong with TMI, i just like NEI over TMI, i dont think it should have any issue connecting to other serversMarch 15, 2012 at 9:35 pm #15275
ok thx broMarch 15, 2012 at 9:40 pm #15277
Ok, so I did what you said. I started with a fresh minecraft jar. Deleted META-INF.
I copied ModLoader, ModLoaderMP v2, and Forge thingy into minecraft.jar.
I did a test run, but It still said Done Loading. What do I do?
