An improvement to the Minecraft server

CraftBukkit is a server mod for the popular sandbox game Minecraft.

Adding even more flexibility

Being free and open source, CraftBukkit offers you the ability to modify the way your Minecraft server is run. You'll be able to manage and create new Minecraft servers easily, which in turn will provide more flexibility when it comes to game customization.

CraftBukkit requires you to install Minecraft Server and Java in order to work. Otherwise, installation is pretty simple.

As easy as .bat

After downloading CraftBukkit, move the craftbukkit.jar file to the directory from which you'd like the server to run on your PC. Open a text editor and type in the following:

java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar craftbukkit.jarPAUSE

From there, just save the document as run.bat (not as a .txt, please note!) in the same directory you saved the craftbukkit.jar file in. Double click on run.bat, and CraftBukkit should start right up.

Customise your sandbox

CraftBukkit is a great way to customize your Minecraft experience to your own specifications.

    Harms My Computer.
    When I try to download it onto my laptop, its says this file can harm my computer....I'm not going to download it in that case. I don't want another virus on my laptop.
    Cons: It needs to be safer i think....
