You can take a look at the demo version of Minecraft. Yes, you will need one username for each player. Also, take a look at MinecraftEdu They offer Minecraft to schools for 50% off the retail price.

Probably you are inside the spawn protection radius and that is why you can't break blocks. When there are no ops on the server, spawn protection is disabled, that is why you can break blocks when there are no ops defined. For more details, see Spawn protection and server.properties (search for 'spawn-protection')

The simple answer is Yes, having more people on a server will cause it to use up more resources, foremost RAM and secondly CPU. The longer answer is to explain that each person on the server loads a set of the chunks around them, that is what they are looking at. If all of the people are close together then you will get overlap on these as the players will ...

Go to your server.properties and make sure "server.ip=" is empty. server-ip= Make sure the port you are trying to use for the server isn't being used elsewhere.

I see a number of possible problems that may help your server run with less ram. PlayerViewDistance On many servers, including my own, the ViewDistance parameter in your server properties file may be too high. Decreasing this value will cause less chunks to be loaded for the players, but if you set it too low, ie below 3, then you won't be able to see far ...

Minecraft Demo can be used to host LAN, but it won't connect to a LAN server other than itself. So the only way to play Minecraft multiplayer without a paid account is to play the classic mode. It is, however, very old and only includes creative mode and limited maps. For the actual up-to-date Minecraft, you need an account for each user. There seem to be ...

in my experience: one 24 player server will use the following. 1mbit upstream minimum. depending on tickrate uses 1 to 1.5Ghz on one core minimum. And will use a minimum of 500mb ram But I've managed to run 2 servers with 32players each (css and gmod) on a single 2.4 core with 1GB ram and 1.5mbit upload very succesfully.

I think what you're asking is how to download the correct server release from Minecraft, because the download page always lists (just) the current version. Fortunately, the download link is consistent. The current link is: https://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/versions/1.7.10/minecraft_server.1.7.10.jar So, you just alter the versions a bit, and ...

Yes. Download the server software of whichever version of minecraft you require (let's say 1.6.4). In order for people to be able to play on it, they will need to change their version of minecraft. On the minecraft launcher, click edit profile in the bottom left corner. Then select 1.6.4 from the version drop-down menu and click save. Minecraft will then be ...

Port forwarding is very easy to do, and is documented here. To summarise: Find the IP address of the computer on your local network running the server (something like 192.168.0.4. You can find this in your network settings, or if you're happy using the command line, the command ipconfig will give you the info you need. Logon to your router management web ...

Rather than forwarding ports, using Hamachi is a common solution and it's very easy (and free). All you'll have to do is create a network name and password, and then give that info to your friend. They will use the IP address shown for your computer in Hamachi to connect. Port forwarding is the best way to go, absolutely, so if you're willing to figure out ...

Notice: I haven't tested this on Mac OSX server but it should run. First download and install SteamCMD and then start the programm. Choose the path where the dedicated server should be installed with the force_install_dir /full/path/to/csgo-ds/command. Install the dedicated server with this command: app_update 740 validate Then quit the SteamCMD with ...

Vanilla In a vanilla server there is no way to edit bot names from a list as they are hardcoded into the game. The only way to change bot names in vanilla is to do this command: tf_bot_add [count] [class] [team] [difficulty] [name] Read about this command here. Plugin I have found this plugin that allows you to edit a botnames.txt file to easily ...

In permissions plugins, each world is handled separately, as to, for example, make a world where players and freely mine for materials, and another is strictly build only. To keep the exact permissions all that needs to be done is copy and paste all the Overworld permissions into the Nether and End permissions, and to know exactly what it would look like, I ...

Routers, as a general rule, do not allow local loop-back of connections, or martian packets as they are sometimes known. This is for valid network security reasons and the number of routers that make this optional are in the minority, and even if yours is one of them enabling it just to play a game is something I would strongly recommend against. Connect to ...

Multiverse-NetherPortals is specifically for having an individual nether for each overworld. Unless you need multiple nether worlds, MVNP is of no use to you. Without the plugin, the nether should be linked to your main world anyway! If your end goal is to have a main world, nether, end, and a flatland for creative building, then you only need MV-Core, ...

The simplest thing to do is install Java again (java.com/getjava‎), then try again. If this does not work, here is how to configure the server to use the same Java as the Minecraft client: Open the Minecraft Launcher Click on 'Edit Profile' Make sure 'Launcher Visibility' is set to 'Keep the lanucher open' Click 'Save Profile' Click 'Play' and wait for ...

The current regular version of Minecraft intends to have one license/account per player, but no license is needed for the server. Therefore, the only expense to make this happen, beyond server hardware, is Minecraft accounts for any player who does not already have one.

Provided you have the tools to install the game server you want (programs from the games sites) and you know what operating system it requires, you can opt for any hosting platform like any other website. Be careful on the banswidth you are allocated and the machine specifications. Depending on the number of player you intend to host games for, it may ...
