Rather Odd Problem

Hello, rather new to the game. I have been having a problem, whenever I create a little multiplayer thing for just me and a few friends to goof around on, I have no tools. I go to the ‘Tools’ tab and the four types come up but the names of the four types of tools are all that is on the tab. I click the names and they just get greyed out. This doesn’t happen in singleplayer or other multiplayer servers, only the ones I create. My friends do, however, have access to their tools. Sorry to be a burden, thank you in advance.
