Hosting a Preview server

  1. Make sure you have installed AndrewIdot's Unrestricted Preview 1
  2. Download minecraft_server.jar. You can download one here
  3. Create a separate folder (it doesn't need to be .minecraft) and put the JAR in it.
  4. (optional) Create a startup script, start.bat (start.sh, if you're on Linux), for example. Put the following command in it: java -Xms512M minecraft_server.jar -Xmx1G -jar nogui
    1. Xms512M - this parameter controls the minimum amount of RAM, which would be allocated to your server. Change the M to G , if you want to specify the size in Gigabytes.
    2. Xmx1G - this parameter controls the maximum amount of RAM, that could be allocated to your server. Change the G to M, if you want to specify the size in Megabytes.
    3. nogui - this parameter disables the GUI frontend of the server. It is advised that you do not enable it, as it is quite buggy.
  5. If you didn't create a startup script, then open the command prompt (or the terminal in Linux, Windows Terminal for some Windows 11 users) in the created folder and use the same command to start the server.
  6. After the server outputted [INFO] Done! For help, type "help" or "?", close the server using the command stop
  7. Go to server.properties and configure the server for your needs. See server.properties for more info.

Hosting a Preview2 server

  1. Download v1605_unprv2_server.jar. You can find one in the "Links" section here.
  2. Create a separate folder (it doesn't need to be .minecraft) and put the JAR in it.
  3. (optional) Create a startup script, start.bat (start.sh, if you're on Linux), for example. Put the following command in it: java -Xms512M -Xmx1G -jar v1605_unprv2_server.jar nogui
    1. Xms512M - this parameter controls the minimum amount of RAM, which would be allocated to your server. Change the M to G , if you want to specify the size in Gigabytes.

  6. Go to server.properties and configure the server for your needs. See server.properties for more info.

Hosting a Lilypad server

  1. Download RosepadServer. It is a custom server JAR made by buj_itself and based on Smaed's LilypadServer.
  2. Create a separate folder (it doesn't need to be .minecraft) and put the JAR in it.
  3. (optional) Create a startup script, start.bat (start.sh, if you're on Linux), for example. Put the following command in it: java -Xms512M -Xmx1G -jar RosepadServer.jar nogui
    1. Xms512M - this parameter controls the minimum amount of RAM, which would be allocated to your server. Change the M to G , if you want to specify the size in Gigabytes.
    2. Xmx1G - this parameter controls the maximum amount of RAM, that could be allocated to your server. Change the G to M, if you want to specify the size in Megabytes.
    3. nogui - this parameter disables the GUI frontend of the server. If you want to use it, simply delete the parameter.
  4. If you didn't create a startup script, then open the command line (or the terminal in Linux, Windows Terminal for some Windows 11 users) in the created folder and use the same command to start the server.
  5. After the server outputted [INFO] Done! For help, type "help" or "?", close the server using the command stop

Hosting a Cypress server

  1. Find ext1605_20_server.jar included in the magnet download link or the MEGA mirror link.
  2. Create a separate folder (it doesn't need to be .minecraft) and put the JAR in it.
  3. (optional) Create a startup script, start.bat (start.sh, if you're on Linux), for example. Put the following command in it: java -Xms512M -Xmx1G -jar RosepadServer.jar nogui
    1. Xms512M - this parameter controls the minimum amount of RAM, which would be allocated to your server. Change the M to G , if you want to specify the size in Gigabytes.

    3. nogui - this parameter disables the GUI frontend of the server. If you want to use it, simply delete the parameter.
  4. If you didn't create a startup script, then open the command line (or the terminal in Linux, Windows Terminal for some Windows 11 users) in the created folder and use the same command to start the server. Double-clicking the JAR also works.
  5. After the server outputted [INFO] Done! For help, type "help" or "?", close the server using the command stop
