  • A guide to setting up a cloud server network

    - What server software or framework to use. Ideally, if you dont need too much vanilla features (world generation, all mobs & items implemented, etc), I'd use something lightweight that is not based off of the vanilla server software. There are a few projects like this on github, including: https://github.com/Minestom/Minestom , https://github.com/feather-rs/feather , https://github.com/KryptonMC/Krypton , https://github.com/df-mc/dragonfly (bedrock). Which one you use will probably depend mostly on your preference. - You will need a way to store data separate from the servers. A database like postgres should work. There are a lot of different databases tho!
  • Software that should be FOSS

    Even if performance is your worry, Minestom is an open-source barebones reimplementation of the minecraft server. With this, you can make extremelly custom things and let people connect using the default vanilla client. Of coruse, you can pair this with a mod if you want to.
  • What software would I need
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/admincraft | 20 Dec 2022
    Depends on what you're doing on said server. If it doesn't require vanilla mechanics then Minestom might suit the job well. Other than that, I'd recommend Paper, Purpur or Pufferfish.

    It's unlikely to achieve have such performance and feature using Paper/Bukkit/Spigot or the one provided by Mojang. If you want to write your own server-side software, you could use Minestom.

  • Setting up Minecraft hosting for 300+ players

    Also to add to this, if you don't need full vanilla functionality and are more focus on higher player count than something slightly more experimental but more performant might be your best bet like GlowstoneMC (glowstone supports paper plugins) or Minestrom
  • Would it be theoretically possible to host 500 players in one world?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/admincraft | 5 Jan 2022
    Theoretically, but not using any bukkit fork. Your only option would be to use Minestom. It could hold all those players at a good tps ( im told they tested with over 1k but i cant find any documentation of the test). The only constraint is client side cus the mc client can only load so many other players. This could prob be mitigated by not showing each player ever other player. Ofc this comes with the big catch that u cant use spigot plugins and will need to develop every feature u wish to use. Below is a link to their github. https://github.com/Minestom/Minestom
  • How to pick a server software for your server
    4 projects | reddit.com/r/admincraft | 24 Nov 2021
    Now you need to think about what features your server needs, like chests, combat, redstone etc. If your server doesn't need many vanilla features you may want to look into using a server software built from the ground up, like Minestom or Krypton. The vanilla server will work for whatever you decide but will not have the performance compared to software without all the features.
