I am one of those server owners who has been around forever, but has always just downloaded a pack or made a pack myself, then tweaked a few config files then released the server to my very excited patrons... I would always find issues with certain configs and tweak them along the way, or add another mod as things got too out of hand (griefers)...
My question is this --
What are some good mods that would benefit a Server Owner with management of the server, in the All The Mods 3 (ATM3) Mod Pack, or any Forge based server for that matter?
Bukkit always had the coolest mods with great fun little activities, which you could just throw in the Mods folder, tell your players, and unleash them to have the time of their lives with it... I feel that is lost with Forge.
