You might be interested in creating your own Minecraft survival server. You can create your own Minecraft survival server, which is a great way to express your passion for the game. This tutorial will show you how to create your Minecraft survival server using the Java Edition.
Step 1: Download Minecraft Java Edition
First, Minecraft Java Edition is required to host a custom server. You can’t use Pocket, Windows 10 or console versions of Minecraft Java Edition. So make sure you buy and download it first.
Step 2: Download the latest Java Version
Second, make sure that you are running the most recent Java version. The latest version of Java can be downloaded here. You can download the program in the same way you would normally download any other software.
Click on the button to download the software and accept its terms and conditions. After that, open the JavaSetup executable file within your downloads directory. Next, let the app make changes to your computer before hitting the Install button.
Step 3: Download the Minecraft server
Next, download the Server.jar file from Minecraft’s website. Download the link that says minecraft_server.1.17.1.jar (Note: the number might change based on the latest version).
Step 4: Create an entirely new folder
After that, you should create a folder on your desktop to store all the files. This folder can be named “Minecraft Server” (or any other name that suits your project). Next, open the downloaded folder and copy the Server.jar file to your newly created Minecraft folder. To run the file, click on “Open” and right-click on it. The folder should now be filled with all the files required to run the application.
Step 5: Start the server
Next, open the file eula.text created in the folder. Change the line “eula=false” to “eula=true”. Finally, go to the Notepad’s File menu, and click Save. Next, open the server.jar file by right-clicking on it and hit “Open.” This will open a window that will indicate that you have officially launched a server.
You can now play on the server with your friends who have the same internet access as you. Congratulations! Have fun!
Optional: How to Set Difficulty
Minecraft’s difficulty level is one of the server features that really adds flavor to the game. Some people prefer more peaceful game modes, while others like more challenge. No matter what type of player you are, this is how to set the difficulty level for your server.
This can only be done if you are already a server administrator. You can’t make the changes without permissions. Here’s how you can change the difficulty of your server.
Now you can adjust the difficulty of your game. You can now enjoy your new world, which you can either make peaceful or chaotic with enemies.
