Minecraft Capture the Flag
After a long break, the server is back online! Software is no longer publicly released so I can focus on integration with the website and more advanced features.
This is a Minecraft Classic custom server based on OpenCraft 0.2. It was originally created to host Jacob_'s Capture the Flag server, which was the second CTF server for Minecraft. The software was later released publicly.
- Loading of standard multiplayer levels using minecraft-server.jar
- Level sending code optimized
- Various chat commands
- Exploding TNT
- Stats system, integrated with ranks page on the website
- Domination & Revenge
Download the server software using the above link and extract it to a folder on your computer. Edit opencraft.properties with Notepad or Notepad++ to change the server settings.
You most likely want to give yourself op powers; to do that rename the file called YourName.xml in the savedGames folder. You can op other people using /op [name]. You can give people VIP rank (can kick, mute and start a new game) using /modify [name] VIP true.
On Windows you can click runServer.bat to start the server; on other platforms you can use the following command:

Maps should be in the standard Minecraft server format. When viewed from the top in Omen, red must be on the left and blue on the right. After you make a map, you must make a properties file for it by copying one of the existing ones. Edit it with Notepad or Notepad++ to fill in all of the settings with the appropriate numbers:
- divider - where the center line is, usually width/2.
- buildCeiling: the y-value that users cannot build above
The rest of the coordinates contain the red and blue spawn and flag positions. Note that the y coordinates count from the bottom, not from the top as Omen does.
Put the map in the maps folder, then you can start the server and use /newgame to start a new game there.
