Calling Minecraft nerds.
So my 13yo son just discovered MineCraft, and having a lot more fun with it than I would have imagined (playing survival mode)

Any of you guys have experience with setting up/maintaining a MC server? Looking for ideas to make it a little better for him (and his friends) to keep them entertained through the summer and beyond.

Suggestions?

Here is where it stands so far;
-MC Server is running on a stripped Ubuntu 20 server (2 cpu's @ 3.3Ghz and 6G RAM)

-Installed Multiverse over Spigot (4 worlds for now) (MV Portals is installed but waiting to be set up)

-Found a really nice 32x resource pack that I like, wanted it to go easy on lower end clients (pushed from separate httpd server).

-White-list is in play to keep the clowns out.

Max load for a while is not expected to exceed a dozen or so concurrent users which only eats 50% allocated resources but PLENTY more are available on demand.

BTW, I tried the MC server on Win10 VM with the same resources, that sucked rocks even with a single user

If i were you, I'd just pay for a Realm.

But if he's trying to learn IT stuff, build and maintain pc's/server, then continue with a physical box.


I play minecraft a good bit, and the Realm server always seemed to work best.

Yeah, buying/renting a realm is never going to happen. My lab is big enough I could rent out VPS's all day long if I was so inclined.

My question has nothing to do with the technology side, but from the gaming end and how to improve the game for my son and his friends beyond what I've done so far.

Have him setup some cron jobs for backups and perform various vulnerability patches. It is the gift that keeps on giving.
