Our LearnToMod Private Servers have been majorly rehauled, and there are a lot more updates coming soon…
New Place to Access Your Private Server
Now, LearnToMod users spin up their servers from within the new Server Admin Page (which used to be the Minecraft Connect Badge). The first time users arrive at that page, Tutorial Steve will have a helpful tutorial for you to watch that will explain all the new features! Get to this page by pressing the green square on your LearnToMod homepage.
Note: You will need to load the mods you want to test, each time you start up a new server (i.e. your mod chest won't be overflowing with mods anymore - only the ones added to their server that session.) This should help cut down bugs!
Remember, your mods will always be stored at mod.learntomod.com/programs regardless of whether or not they're in your mod chest! To add a mod to your chest, press the blue mod button or m in the simulator.
New Server Tools
From the Server Admin Page, you can now manage your server in lots of different ways! You can see all the people within your world on a DynMap, you can change the weather and the time, and you can even run server commands!
Goodbye, Hub World!
We’ll be phasing our play.learntomod.com soon. That means no more waiting around in a hub world to join your server. To get started, just click the Start Server button on the Server Admin page.
Official Release Notes
Servers are now “fully private” — not shared
Each server has 1G of RAM and supports roughly 16 players (depends on factors like mods and world)
IPs are randomized for your security
New servers are good for the environment: we power them down automatically when you’re not using the server — part of our ongoing effort to make the world a better place
Servers now support Minecraft version 1.9
New server dashboard
Start and stop server
Change time of day and weather
All old world will work on the new servers
All old mods will work on the new servers
You will need to change your minecraft profile to 1.9.
Watch the tutorial video on this page (click the question mark in the top right)! This video showcases all the newest server features and some additional tips & tricks.
Make sure your Minecraft Username is set correctly in your Account Settings. If a different Minecraft Username is set in your Account Settings, your server will give “op” permissions to the wrong username (you’ll even see it trying to op the wrong username in your console)! Check your Account Settings here:
Note: You can always give yourself op permissions while your server is running by running the “op minecraft_username” command in the Commands terminal on your Server Admin page. This goes for op-ing anyone on your server!
If you’re having trouble getting your private Minecraft server to work the first time since the update, try switching your world! Then, if you’re server is still trying to start up, stop it & start it up again.
You can run the following command in your Server Admin page terminal to get your world’s dynmap to load faster: “dynmap fullrender world”
Here's how to invite others to your world.
