I started a 1.8 server and what not, i kinda get how to do all that, but i want to play with some friends who i can't lan connect to, is there anyway to server this map and if so could you explain a bit?
You have a couple of options. If you're using LAN, you can get Hamachi to 'trick' the computer into thinking you're all on the same LAN network. I don't know the details, but if you search Hamachi Minecraft server I'm sure you'll find some answers. 😄
