How do I set up a Big Dig Server?

18 posts in this topic

Hey, so, I'm a complete noob at this, I have no experience, but Im trying to host a Big Dig server (latest update) for me and some friends.

Im trying to make the server IP through Hamachi.

So, I downloaded the zip, and extracted it into a folder titled Big Dig Server.

Next, I open up Hamachi, and copy the IP address into the PROPERTIES file titles Server.

Then, I run minecraft_server.jar, join the server, but its a pure vanilla server. All the mods and items show up in NEI, but none of them have spawned into the world, and I cant place them in my inventory by any means.

I read that I should run DigDig.jar, but that doesn't do anything, apart from creating a new folder, lib, and 2 new files appear, a ForgeLoader text document and a ForgeLoader LCK file.

Can any body help me?

I just want to run a BigDig server for a max of 12 people, through Hamachi, no plugins, etc, etc. Just everybody on survival, except for myself as OP.

Do not start minecraft_server.jar, you must start LAUNCH.BAT Then you should be able to connect. P.S. Be sure to have java updated to the latest version and have plenty of RAM because the server will eat a lot of it.

I have 8gb on RAM, so that should be plenty. Does it just keep eating RAM? or is their a cap that I can put on it?

As for LAUNCH.BAT, I ran it, and I let it run for a while (bout 5-10mins) come back, and it says press any key. I press space, it closes, and nothing happens?

It's enough. It will need more RAM the more machines and systems you build and let them run, the more chunks are loaded(quarries, world anchors etc). As for the launching of the server can you post a pastebin of your log ?

Try reinstall the server again, using only launch.bat. Let me know if it works, also check your java version. Do you have the latest update? (iirc it's with 21 at the end)

Here's what I did, copied from a seperate thread:

When I did these steps exactly, it seems my big dig server allows me to place my tinker table.

For this example I will be referencing Big Dig and running Win 7

Step 1: Download The Big Dig server client (from here: http://mirror.technicpack.net/Technic/servers/bigdig/BigDigServer-v1.3.9.zip)

Step 2: Created a new folder on desktop to host my server files (Desktop\BIG DIG

Step 3: Unextracted zip file to DESKTOP\BIG DIG

Step 4: Open 'server' properties in note pad

Step 5: Set my "server-ip" to my laptop's IP address (Which I have confirmed via the command prompt and ipconfig)

Step 6: Saved new properties

Step 7: Opened "Launch.bat" in notepad. This contained

java -Xmx3G -Xms2G -jar BigDig.jar nogui

pause

Step 8: Ran "launch.bat"

Step 9: Waited for batch file to download files

Step 10: Opened up Big Dig

Step 11: /op [insert username here]

Step 12: Gave self tinker table

Step 13: Placed it down onto map

Step 14: Suddenly see tinker table not disappearing.

well after spending a minute "almost literally" and putting the error message into google

'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

the problem is that your OS has the wrong path pointing to java.

the fix is the copied below

It sounds like you haven't added the right directory to your path.

First find out which directory you've installed Java in. For example, on my box it's in C:Program Filesjavajdk1.7.0_111. Once you've found it, try running it directly. For example:

c:> "c:Program Filesjavajdk1.7.0_11binjava"-version

Once you've definitely got the right version, add the bin directory to your PATH environment variable.

Note that you don't need a JAVA_HOME environment variable, and haven't for some time. Some tools may use it - and if you're using one of those, then sure, set it - but if you're just using (say) Eclipse and the command-line java/javac tools, you're fine without it.
