This tutorial will show you how to set up your own server that is included on every installation of StarMade free of charge. The server may be installed on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. The software is available in the client found here at the download page. There is no current custom server software to run a StarMade server.

Basic Server

The basic server is for small private servers


Windows

Verify and install the latest version of Java

  1. Make sure that you have Java 7 installed. To do this, we first need to open up a command (CMD) window.
  2. In Windows XP/Vista/7, whilst holding the Windows key down, press R to open the Run dialog. Type cmd and press enter.
    • Once the command prompt has opened, enter the following command, followed by the enter key:
      java -version
    • Java should display its version, which should read "Java version 1.7"
  3. If you get the error "'Java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.", then you may have a previous version (less than 1.6) of Java or Java may not be in your system path.
  4. For 32-bit users you can obtain the latest version here: Java download page. If you use a 64-bit OS, ensure that you download the x64 Windows package.
    • After you have installed the latest version of Java try again with java -version.
      If you get an error at this point, try the following to add Java to your system path.
      1. Right click Computer.
      2. Click properties.
      3. Click "Advanced system settings".
      4. Click "Environment Variables".
      5. Under system variables, find the Path variable.
      6. Click edit, and append to the end of the value: ;"c:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin". If you use 32-bit Java on a 64-bit OS use: ;"c:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin"
      7. Restart your computer.
      8. Now re-open the command prompt and try again.


Windows Vista/7 users: If these steps don't work for you, open the Control Panel and search for Java, then click Java (32 or 64-bit). Under the Java tab, click "View...". The installed version of Java will be listed under 'Platform'.

Start the Server

To start the server open the client StarMade-starter.exe.

  1. Click Start Dedicated Server
  2. The StarMade Server Manager window will pop up showing the recently created server.
  3. Join the Server using the IP adress localhost:4242

  2. Click Shutdown Server

Resetting the World

  1. Make sure server is shutdown.
  2. Navigate to the StarMade folder commonly C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Downloads\StarMade

To start the server open the client StarMade-starter.jar.

  1. Click Start Dedicated Server
