How to Make a Pixelmon Server

Ever get tired of playing Pixelmon by yourself, or playing on some other person’s server, following their every rule and command? Well suffer no more, ladies and gentlemen, because today I will be showing you how to make a pixelmon server – your own server, with pixelmon! By doing this you can make the rules, control the players, and invite your friends, without any interruptions. Whether you want to fly around on a level 100 shiny Rayquaza, or just spawn hundreds of Voltorbs near your friends’ houses, you can do it all, when you’re the owner. Before we begin the fun however, make sure you know the basics of Pixelmon, and also of course make sure you have Pixelmon installed on your computer, so you can enter the server after having created it. In case you do not know how to do this, you can refer to my own easy guide on how to install pixelmon here. Additionally, you will need some kind of text editing software (notepad, textedit, etc.) and Java.

However, making a server can take work, and managing it takes even longer. If you prefer, you can also just play on the hundreds of amazing Pixelmon servers other users have already created. If you would like to play on another server but don’t know where to begin, I have a handy list of some of my favorite servers here. Additionally, if you wish to create your server but don’t wish to host it on your computer, there are many easier methods and platforms that can be accessed online, however 99% of these require a significant fee, as they’re hosted on expensive servers by others. It’s your choice, but the most customization is always from your own personal computer.




Now, for how to make a Pixelmon Server!

How to make a Pixelmon Server on PC

This way for how to make a pixelmon server requires a PC computer, admin access is preferred. Even though I’ll be teaching you how to go through the whole process with screenshots and detailed steps, it’s suggested that you have a good grasp of basic computer knowledge, such as moving files around and more. This exact method for how to make a pixelmon server may not work with every version and update of Pixelmon, but the general idea is the same for all computers. Additionally, the more powerful your computer, the better the server will run; more Random Access Memory (RAM) can lead to faster and less laggy servers.

  • First, download the Minecraft server software, here. The version you download depends on the version of Pixelmon you would like to play with
    • For Pixelmon 3.2.9+, download the “Server Jar” from the website for Minecraft version 1.7.10. For Pixelmon 3.1.4, use Minecraft version 1.7.2, and for Pixelmon 3.0.4, use Minecraft version 1.6.4
  • Next, move the server in your computer
    • To make it easier for the guide, we’ll refer to the file (minecraft_server._._._.jar) as “server.jar”
    • Simply place the file in an easy place to access, such as your desktop
    • Then, make a new folder called “Pixelmon Server”, and drop the “server.jar” file in that
  • Next, install Forge on your server
    • First, head to the Forge website here, and click “Installer” under the recommended build for whichever Minecraft version you are using
    • Next, open the Forge installer file, and check the box that says “Install server”. Also, for the place where Forge will be installed, make sure that you find your “Pixelmon Server” folder
  • Next, start your server
    • First, simply double click the “server.jar” file to open it, and it will create some more folders and files in your original folder, such as “logs” and “server.properties”. Because you have a PC, you should have the application Notepad, or some other text editing software – this will be used to edit most server files
    • After the above files have been created, check to see if you have a file called “eula.txt”. If you do, close any windows that opened, and what you will want to do is open that file and change the line that says “False” to “True”
    • After that’s done, simply open “server.jar” again and make sure that a console window opens, with a bunch of text to the right, like a chat box. In the text box below, type “stop”, to safely save all the files and close the console
    • Next, there should be a file that starts with “forge___.jar”, rename it to “mcforge.jar”, and open it. That should create a subfolder called “mods”, and open the console by itself. Type “stop” to once again safely close the console
  • Next, install Pixelmon on your server
    • First, simply head here and download the latest (preferably recommended) build for the version of Pixelmon you wish to create – this should match the Minecraft version you installed the server for in previous steps
    • Next, just go ahead and drop that downloaded file in the “mods” subfolder of your Pixelmon Server folder
  • Next, fine-tuning the server – bit of a trickier step
    • For this step, you will need to know how much RAM your computer has. The more you have, the more you can dedicate to your server, making your server less laggy. To find this, search in Google “how to find ram on Windows (enter your windows version here, such as 7, 8, etc.)”, and follow those instructions
    • First, create a new text document, and call it something like “run.txt”
    • In this document, copy and paste the following: java -Xms512M -Xmx1024M -jar mcforge.jar
    • The part that says “-Xmx1024M” stands for how much RAM you are dedicating, in this case, 1GB. For more, simply type “-Xmx2048M” for 2GB, and so forth
    • Now, save this text file in your main server folder (Pixelmon Server) as something like “run.bat”… make sure it’s not saved as “run.bat.txt”, or it won’t work
  • Finally, running your server
    • Now, simply double click the “run.bat” and you will be able to open your console, with your specifications, and finally run the server!
    • To test this, open Minecraft with Pixelmon installed (the version of Pixelmon you play with must match the version of Pixelmon your server is running), and go to “Multiplayer”. Then, click either add server or direct connect, and since you’re on your computer, you can use “localhost” as the IP
    • As long as the console is running in the background, you should be able to connect to your server; Congratulations!
    • To officially become the owner and lord of your very own world, you will need to op yourself in the console; simply type “op (your minecraft username)” in the text box of the console
  • Congrats! You now have your own server! However, if you would like to play with others, keep reading for instructions on how to invite your friends and others to your new dominion




How to make a Pixelmon Server on MAC

This way for how to make a pixelmon server requires a Mac (apple) computer, admin access is preferred. Even though I’ll be teaching you how to go through the whole process with screenshots and detailed steps, it’s suggested that you have a good grasp of basic computer knowledge, such as moving files around and more.

To find this, search in Google “how to find ram on Windows (enter your OS X version here, such as Lion, Yosemite, etc.)”, and follow those instructions
    • First, create a new text document, and call it something like “start.txt”
    • In this document, copy and paste the following: #!/bin/bash cd “$(dirname “$0″)” exec java -Xms512M -Xmx1024M -jar mcforge.jar nogui
    • The part that says “-Xmx1024M” stands for how much RAM you are dedicating, in this case, 1GB. For more, simply type “-Xmx2048M” for 2GB, and so forth
    • Now, save this text file in your main server folder (Pixelmon Server) as something like “start.command”… make sure it’s not saved as “start.command.txt”, or it won’t work
    • Next, open the Terminal application (Command+Space for Spotlight, then search Terminal), and enter “chmod+ax” then drag the above text file into the window, and hit enter, giving you full permission to use “start.command”
  • Finally, running your server
    • Now, simply double click the “start.command” and you will be able to open the same console with Terminal, with your specifications, and finally run the server!
    • To test this, open Minecraft with Pixelmon installed (the version of Pixelmon you play with must match the version of Pixelmon your server is running), and go to “Multiplayer”. Then, click either add server or direct connect, and since you’re on your computer, you can use “localhost” as the IP
    • As long as terminal is running in the background, you should be able to connect to your server; Congratulations!
    • To officially become the owner and lord of your very own world, you will need to op yourself in terminal; simply type “op (your minecraft username)” in the text box of the console
  • Congrats! You now have your own server! However, if you would like to play with others, keep reading for instructions on how to invite your friends and others to your new dominion




Playing with others on your Server for PC/MAC:

Now that you have your own server, the next step is to play with others. There are two ways to go about this; the easy way and the hard way. The easy way is by using a software called LogMeIn Hamachi. This method will allow you to host a server for you and your friends – but with a 5 person limit. If you think that you’ll only have a couple friends on anyway, just use this method and you’re good to go. The hard way is by opening your port with portforwarding and using a Static IP, then sharing your external IP with whoever you want to play. Lucky for you guys, here in my tutorial about how to make a pixelmon server, I’ll be showing y’all both ways!

The Easy Way – Using LogMeIn Hamachi

  • First, download and install Hamachi
    • Head over to the Hamachi website here then click “Try it Free” (hence the 5 player limit)
    • Sign up for an account, then download, open, and install the file, and run Hamachi
    • Click the Power Button to start Hamachi
  • Create a Hamachi network
    • Find “Create a new network” (may be different wording depending on version and operating system)
    • Enter whatever you wish for the Network ID and Password, but remember what you put in, don’t make the password something personal, others will need it
  • Invite others
    • Tell other people to install Hamachi and then click “Join an existing network” (again, wording may vary)
    • Those others will need your Network ID and Password to join your Hamachi network – they should pop up in the window when they’ve joined
  • Connecting Hamachi and your Minecraft Server
    • Now for the tricky part – go into the Pixelmon Server folder you created earlier and look for something called “server.properties”
    • Open this file with whatever text software you use, and look for “server-ip=”, after this enter the IP that’s shown in your Hamachi window, it’ll look like 12.123.456.789, and restart the console
  • Playing on the Server
    • Now, you and your friends should all have Hamachi open in the background, and open Minecraft
    • In Multiplayer, click add server or direct connect, and under IP Address simply enter the same address that you entered above in server.properties – this is the IP that you and your friends should use when connecting to your computer’s Hamachi network
  • Congrats! Now you and your friends can all play on this Hamachi server – however, a maximum of 5 players can be on at a time. If you need more, then continue reading this guide on how to make a pixelmon server for “The Hard Way”, allowing unlimited players

The Hard Way – Using Portforwarding

Ah, ladies and gentlemen, friends and more friends, this is one of those rare moments when a man like myself is unable to help everyone. Port forwarding is a bit of a complex process in which you must manipulate and access your router in order to make it open, allowing people from around the world to join using your external IP. Now, I will guide you through the process as much as I can, but ultimately I won’t be able to be of much help because each computer and router is different and has a unique technique to acheiving the end result. Well anyway, let’s go!

  • Check your IP – Make sure it’s Static
    • The first step will be to guarentee that your IP address is not Dynamic. Dynamic IP’s constantly change every day or so, and that would mean your friends would have to enter a new IP each time they wished to join your server, and as you can imagine, that’d get very annoying
    • So, what we want is a Static IP – one permanent IP that stays that way and won’t change unless you make it. However, the method for this depends severely on your operating system and version. So, I’d suggest you search for a YouTube video with the terms “make static ip (mac/windows/linux)” and see what results come up
  • Open the ports of your router
    • Here’s the tough part, folks. I can’t help you much here, as there are thousands and thousands of routers and instructions very for each one. The general idea is you want to open a port (25565 is the default port for Minecraft servers, but it can be almost anything, really) so that people can use it to join your server
    • The best I can do here is guide you to this site, where there’s a list of router brands and routers from which you can specify your specific model and figure out how to portforward from there
    • Once the above step is complete, the rest is extremely easy in comparison. First, just check quickly that your port is open by going to this site and putting in the port you opened to check if your port is indeed open to the world. If it is, good job, now just continue and finish it up. If not, you should go back and make sure you didn’t make any small error
  • Set up the server
    • Now that the port is open, you simply have to tell the server you just made what your IP is and what your port is
    • First, head to this site and copy your external IP, which is your server’s IP, the one that you and your friends will play on. It’s displayed on the top of the website
    • Next, go to the “server.properties” file with the text software you use, and look for “server-ip=”, after this just paste the IP that you found in the previous step
    • Finally, make sure that the port is also correct (25565 is default, but you may have changed it when port forwarding)
  • Finally, sharing the server
    • Here’s the easy part: Just start your console up and share your external IP (the one in “server.properties”) with your friends! All they need to do is head to Multiplayer in Minecraft and add or direct connect to the server using that IP address
    • If it doesn’t work, request that they put “:(your port)” directly after the IP
    • Congrats! Now you and your friends can all play on your very own Pixelmon server! There’s no limit to the amount of players, but do remember that lag and a slow server can come from too much happening at once

So there ya go folks, that’s my tutorial on how to make a pixelmon server. Hope you guys enjoyed, and I hope you have fun with your servers! Once you’ve made your server, the next step is to advertise it. Head to server ad websites and voting sites to publish your server to the world. You can start, by simply posting your server in the comments, and I’ll be sure to check it out when I get the chance! Also, remember, as always, any thoughts, compliments, or questions can go in the comments and I’ll reply as soon as possible. Signing out, OmegaTronz.

  6. khgfds says:

    I’m on a mac, and when I type in “chmod a+x” and drag the file in, it works just fine but when I double click on the run.command file, it doesn’t work. Somebody please help.

  7. someone says:

    I created the server, following these directions. Everything worked fine but when I went onto the server, normal mobs spawned instead of pokemon. I was initially using other mods with it and I thought those mods might be the problem, but I took out all mods besides pixelmon and the same thing happened: no pokemon. Has anyone had a similar issue, and is there any way you think I can fix this? (Btw I am using pixelmon version 3.4 with minecraft forge 1.7.10). Thanks in advance (:

    • Omegatron says:

      This is probably something being weird with the Pixelmon configuration. In your server, look around for a configuration file for the mod (this will also include settings for whether or not you can fly pixelmon, what kinds will spawn, etc). Once you’ve found that file, look for mob spawning.

      • bruno says:

        when i open up the run console it crashes and says that one server tick took too many seconds and shuts down. Is there any way to fix this or is it because my computer is bad

  8. Taan says:

    is the forge-1.7.10-10.13.4.1448-1.7.10-universal the jar file I’m looking for?

  9. bruno says:

    I’m having a problem with connecting to the server, but I have everything downloaded and I know its working. I just don’t know what to do after that. Help is appreciated.

    • Omegatron says:

      To make sure the server is working and the world is fine, run the server, open up Minecraft, and instead of putting in your server’s IP to connect, direct connect to “localhost” (put that exactly in your IP Address area). If that works, then I suggest looking back and troubleshooting for a simple issue. If not, leave details for what exactly you use or what error messages you’re getting, and I’ll try to help out!

  10. atomiczap says:

    I have been running a server on my local network for a while now, it has worked great. My brother has moved recently but we still want to play, so I am trying to get it set up so we can play online. I followed all the directions, the port forwarding works correctly, the server has always run fine the way I had it, but now I get an error saying that the server failed to bind to port when I try to run it. I searched this error and found that this often happens when you up something in the server-ip= line. When I remove this, the server runs fine, but when I try to log into the server using my external ip, it doesn’t work. Any help?

    A couple things I have thought of:
    A while back the server was giving us problems, so we set online-mode=false. Could this be causing the problem? I hope not, because for some reason when we switch from this back and forth we lose all our pokemon/stuff.

    The weird thing here is that I already had my local ip in the server-ip= line, and it worked just fine, it only messes up when I put my external IP in.

    I have tried all the normal stuff (restarting, using task manager to close all java stuff, disabling firewall)

    • atomiczap says:

      Please ignore this, I couldn’t join the server using my external IP, but it turns out my brother can, so all is well even with the server-ip= line blank!

    • Arrexel says:

      When you switch online/offline mode, it changes the per-player UUID that the server sees. A different UUID to the server means a different account, which is why you don’t have any of your stuff or Pokemon. The issue binding to the port is most likely caused because something is already using the port you have set. Try restarting your host system and re-launching the server (without the Minecraft client running).

  11. CoolPuppyGirl says:

    Everytime I open the “run.bat” it instantly closes and I can’t see anything, is there anything I can do to fix that? I have Windows 8.

    • Arrexel says:

      If you open up a command prompt (hold WINDOWS and press R, then type “cmd” and hit enter) you can drag+drop the .bat into the command prompt and run it from there. It won’t close doing it that way.

  12. Louis says:

    Hi, I was having problem with this step:
    “Next, there should be a file that starts with “forge___.jar”, rename it to “mcforge.jar”, and open it. That should create a subfolder called “mods”, and open the console by itself. Type “stop” to once again safely close the console”
    The mods sub-folder wasn’t created! Can someone help toverify the full name of “forge___.jar” would be like?
    Thanks

  13. leydenjar says:

    I tried what you suggested to cool puppy girl, but it said that it couldn’t find my mc.forge file. What should I do?

    • Omegatron says:

      Make sure that the forge file you downloaded beforehand was renamed to mcforge.jar
      If you still have a file that looks like “forge-1.7.10-11.2.3.4.jar”, it needs to be renamed.

      • Justin says:

        I followed all the steps exactly as written. The forge file is renamed but it still says it can’t access the file.

    Can you help leydenjar and spencer?

  15. crazymiss9 says:

  16. Sneasel is the BEST! says:

    What map are you on in the Tekkro Server?

  17. leydenjar says:

    Thanks, this time it worked! My problem was that I called it mcforge.jar, and it added another .jar, turning it into mcforge.jar.jar which is why it didn’t work. So, if anyone else has a problem, try not adding the .jar to the end, and it might work!

    FOR PEOPLE HAVING THE PROBLEM OF run.bat CLOSING AFTER A FEW SECONDS

    i found that naming the mcforge,jar file as mcforge would fix it, most likely as the computer reads mcforge,jar as ,jar,jar which would give the “unable to find” problem

  30. Dave says:

    Ok, so I did everything correctly but when I try to open the run.bat file nothing happens? It opens for like half a second and it closes.

  31. BATMAN says:

    wow this worked way better than any of those youtube tutorials

  32. moon/hai says:

    ok so, whenever i double click the run.bat file, the console opens, then closes. i found out how to fix it, but whenever i drag the run.bat file into the console to connect them, nothing happens. i’ll try doing:
    op haidesu (my mc username)
    /op haidesu
    ophaidesu
    but nothing works – http://prnt.sc/c0ie9r
    also, when i tried joining (using add server and direct connect), it said this:
    http://prnt.sc/c0iek5
    not sure what to do, i don’t know ANYTHING about computers and coding whatsoever
    i’ve used hamachi before with garry’s mod though(successfully), so i think that’s not the issue.
    it’s probably to do with my issues with the console.
    please respond, thanks.

    Hey, I’m making a pixelmon server on mac. I have a few problems. First, the first time I opened the mcforge.jar the console crashed, however it did add the mods folder. Second, when I open the start.command after putting the “chmod+ax” and dragging the start.command it says “The file “start.command” could not be executed because you do not have appropriate access privileges.”
    DISCLAIMER: I am trying this on 1.10.2 (forge, pixelmon, and minecraft), does that affect how it functions?

    Hello,

    This was a great guide and I made my own Pixelmon server with it. A couple days ago, however, I was playing happily when the power went out. When I got back on the server the next day, I got error messages saying that Pixelmon couldn’t read my character file, then when I got in to the game all of my progress was lost and I was back at the spawn point. I think the stuff I made is still there, but all of the pokemon I’ve caught were gone. I believe I found my character file, but its just a jumble of numbers and letters and I have no idea what’s wrong with it…
    Do you know how I can fix this, or where to go to get help?

    Thanks!

    ok i did everything correctly up to the “run.bat” file. when i double click on it, it just opens the .txt file instead of a console. any idea how to fix?

  47. Brandon says:

    ok so i clicked on the “server” executable and it opened the console and i was able to connect to my server but there was no pokemon only real animals and i didnt get to choose a starter pokemon. the hud for pixlemon is still there (pokeballs on the left hand side) but theres no pokemon.

    Excuse me I’m having problems understanding this phrase
    -Now, save this text file in your main server folder (Pixelmon Server) as something like “run.bat”… make sure it’s not saved as “run.bat.txt”, or it won’t work

    Then save is as ? from the first one you said create a new text docu, with a name ‘run.txt’ and now you’re telling to not save it as txt?

    I followed all steps for setting up the server on my mac to the letter. Multiple times. Every time I try to connect to the server with localhost, I get Failed to connect to the server java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused! Any advice? Do you need any additional information to point me in the right direction?
