I am trying to run Skript(a Bukkit plugin), but I want to play alone. Is this somehow possible? BukkitForge hasn't been updated in seven years, and I've tried running a local server, but couldn't get it to work, and also the skript data folder didn't generate. I would like either a suggestion on running any Bukkit plugin in single player, or some help with 1) Getting the local server working and 2) Getting Skript to generate the data folder.

simply create an homemade server with IP "localhost"

step 1- create a folder for your server step 2- download bukkit and rename the file .jar with "bukkit.jar" step 3- create a .txt file and insert this inside (without ") "java -Xmx2048M -Xms2048M -jar bukkit.jar nogui pause " step 4- rename the file "start" and change the .txt with .bat step 5- open start.bat (it will close automaticly) step 6- insert skript in the plugins foler, change the options u want in the server.properties and if u want change the world step 7- open again start.bat step 8- open minecraft and insert the ip "localhost" (without ") !! IF YOU WANT TO STOP THE SERVER, DONT CLOSE THE start.bat FILE, RUN /stop IN THE CONSOLE !!


There is:

Step 1: Download bukkit https://getbukkit.org and rename the file to bukkit.jar

Step 2: Make a folder at your desired location and name it whatever you want

Step 3: Copy the jar to your server folder you just created

Step 4: Open cmd or terminal depending on your OS and do

cd yourFolder/Directory

java -Xms2G -Xmx2G -jar bukkit.jar

You can replace the 2G with 4G or 1G basically the amount of RAM you wanna use

Step 5: Now if you open the folder you should see that there are some new files created if you did everything right

Step 6: Open eula.txt and change the 'false' value to 'true'

Step 7: Open server.properties and set the server-ip to localhost or which will run the server on your own computer

Step 8: Go to your terminal or cmd and type stop

Step 9: Type java -Xms2G -Xmx2G -jar bukkit.jar again or create a bat file for easier access

Step 10: Now the server will actually start and you should see the plugin folders and other server folders created now you need to put the plugins you wanna use in it

Step 11: Now go to Minecraft then direct connect and type the ip 'localhost' or and there you go you're gonna join the world like a single player only on your computer. The only downside is that you can't pause the game.

Now whenever you wanna play just do that command in terminal
