News and Updates / Updates, updates and more updates!
« Last post by crazy on 05 October 2020, 13:39:05 »
Minecraft has never been so popular over the past 6 months during tough COVID-19 times and we've had our hands full just trying to keep up with the demand! Our devs and support team have also been busy working on updates and features for you.

More Modpacks: Last month we've added more than 60 new modpacks (and updated just over 220 modpacks) from Twitch/CurseForge, AtLauncher and FeedTheBeast. We continue to add more packs as requested by our customers!

UI Improvements: We are constantly improving the control panel interface. Along with improved mobile phone and tablet support. While still not perfect, we are adding more improvements over the next few weeks so you can control, monitor and maintain your server from the comfort of your phone.

Hardware Improvements: One of our biggest achievements for this year is upgrading of our entire server infrastructure. With the introduction of our budget and premium servers, running one of the fastest + highest core CPU combo for a Minecraft server (AMD Ryzen 9 3950x), we've never seen such amazing results and feedback from our customers. We are proud to be the only Minecraft provider in Australia running such powerful CPUs

More updates to come, stay safe!

Minecraft / How to connect PS4 or XBOX players to your Minecraft server
« Last post by crazy on 03 September 2020, 08:55:11 »
Here's how you get your PS4 or XBOX to connect to your server.

Server Requirements:
Your server must be running the latest Bedrock edition of Minecraft or latest Java edition with Hybird Bedrock plugin installed (GeyserMC)

Examples of server editions which can work:
Minecraft Bedrock (Mojang Vanilla)
Spi-Got CraftBukkit + GeyserMC & Floodgate Plugin (Contact us to help you set this up)

Examples of server editions which will NOT work:
Java Forge based Modpacks
Minecraft Java (Vanilla)
Anything else not mentioned above will probably not work.


Client Requirements:
Currently PS4 and XBOX do not offer direct connection to online hosted minecraft servers, yet. So additional steps are required to get around this (Mojang are working on it and hopefully in the near future these steps can be skipped)

For a PS4 or XBOX to connect, the client's home network will need to have a proxy server running that will act as a local LAN server but in reality it is just redirecting data to your online hosted minecraft server. This proxy server must run on the same network as the PS4 or XBOX device.

This might sound complex, but we have come up with 2 different solutions which we believe are the easiest and quickest.

Solution 1: Run a Software on PC/MAC (FREE)
OR
Solution 2: Run an App on Android/IOS Phone (About $4 to purchase, free trial)


Solution 1:
This requires you to install a 3rd party software called Phantom (we provide no support nor legal responsibility for any damages it may cause). This software is open source and from our tests, works great.

Easy method:
Contact our STIPE support team and we will provide you a pre-configured phantom file for your server. You or your friends will just need to extract and double click the run_me.bat file and away you go!

Manual Method:
This is how you can manually download, configure and run the phantom app:
  • Download Phantom Software: https://github.com/jhead/phantom Click on Download and click on the latest version. Download the edition for your PC. For example if you are running Windows 10, download phantom-windows.exe
  • Extract the files to a folder on your PC
  • There is no GUI for this application so simply starting it will not work. It needs to be started through a command prompt. However we recommend creating a bat file and launching from there.
  • In the same folder where your phantom files are, create a text file and edit it
  • In the text file, add the line: phantom-windows.exe -server {server_IP}:{port}
    (Note: Replace the {server_IP}:{port} with your actual server ip and port found in the control panel, example:
    phantom-windows.exe -server 221.121.111.50:25566
  • Save the file, and rename it to run_me.bat
  • Double click the file and you should see command prompt pop up with phantom running

Now go to the final step.


Solution 2:
We have tested this for Android devices only. Although it works, we recommend the PC solution (above) if you have a PC. Depending on some devices, it may make the app go to sleep or cause other lag.



Final Step:
Once you have either one of the solutions running above, go to your PS4 or XBOX, start Minecraft, go to FRIENDS tab and you should see your server in the list. Join and play!

Minecraft / How to install Fabric Loader and mods.
« Last post by crazy on 19 August 2020, 13:26:18 »
Here is a quick tutorial on how to install Fabric Loader on your server manually. If you have any issues contact support and we can install it for you.

REMEMBER: Both the CLIENT and SERVER need to have the same version of fabric and mods for it to work.

  • Download the Installer for Fabric Loader - https://fabricmc.net/use/



  • Install Fabric Server Files on your PC
    • Select Server Tab
    • Choose the version you want
    • Choose a easy to get to location
    • Click Install



  • Make sure you also download the server jar file



  • OPTIONAL Recommended Step: Create fabric server a new server profile.
    Before uploading the files, we recommend you create a blank server profile.
    • Go to Advanced Settings
    • Name a profile name and click Create



    • Don't forget to ACTIVATE the profile



  • Upload the fabric server installed files to your server
    • On the Control Panel, open FILE MANAGER
    • On your PC, open the folder of where you installed fabric files
    • Simply drag and drop the fabric files to FILE MANAGER



  • Activate Fabric JAR execute file
    • On the control panel, go to EXPRESS SETTINGS
    • Scroll down to where it says "Jar File Execute"
    • Select "fabric-server-launch.jar
    • Click APPLY to save setting
    • Now restart your server!

This is the same way as uploading plugins or mod.

Minecraft / The GeyserMC Solution, a JAVA+BEDROCK Hybird
« Last post by crazy on 19 August 2020, 08:29:17 »
GeyserMC is a plugin for your java server to allow bedrock players to join the same java server.
It works by using clever translation of network data.  Without bedrock client even knowing its joining a java server.

The Result? Both players from Bedrock and Java editions can interact and play. What's even more, you can still use and add almost any spigot plugin for customisation. Something that other editions of bedrock were limited with. This makes it far superior than any other bedrock edition server.


We at STIPE Servers Australia fully support this plugin and have implemented it into the control panel for you to install (You can find it in the Plugins and Modpack section)


Some things you should know which impact Bedrock players:
  • This is still in experimental development stages, so you might find a few bugs and although its not recommended for production use, it is still used by many
  • To avoid character name conflicts all bedrock players join with an asterisks * in front of their name
    So if you need to execute commands for that character, you would do with with the *
  • default whitelist feature does not work and should be disabled. If you need to use whitelist, we recommend easywhitelist plugin (now included the package) for tutorial see here: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/easywhitelist-name-based-whitelist.65222/

    Another good plugin: (instead of whitelist, you can use ban system)  https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/advancedban.8695/
    (Note: When adding a whitelist user for bedrock, don't forget to add the asterisks * in front of their name)
  • There are some bugs which are still being sorted with this solution. For example, for bedrock edition, crafting recipes auto fill might glitch once in a while. But updates are constantly being made to it.
  • Animals and Mobs still work great and seem to be fully functional with just minor differences for bedrock
