I got a local test net running to have complete control for testing, otherwise unexpected transactions from other people trigger your code, you have to create a new Snapshot file and either sign it and replace the signature in the source or just disable the signature checking in your local testnet (hopefully you will not tamper with your own net I assume so it is not needed)
You also have to disable the coordinator milestone checking or create your own fake milestones, I created fake milestones because do not know how the code for the real milestones work and this is less hassle than modifying a lot of code, and it is interesting to pull the tangle around if you want to experiment with that, regardless it works and you can test in isolation.
It would be a good testing tool to have an explorer with all capabilities to monitor your local tangle realtime, but I do not have that yet, perhaps it is possible to find one online and adapt it to work with the local testnet.
I will try to post this on the forum but all my messages are always flagged as spam and do not want to deal with that hassle anymore, so here it is just in case.
