Yesterday (27/4/13) I released the latest version of my Minecraft Server Manager for Windows. Version 2.2 comes with lots of new features and improvements including:

  • Automatic Updating to latest version of MCSM (future updates won’t require download!)
  • Changing (some) server settings without restarting e.g. white list
  • Massively improved mapping
    • Up to 4x faster! 2 times faster for large maps – all maps (even large that I have) now render in < 15 seconds, most render in < 8 seconds
    • Auto-detection of CPU cores to maximise render speed
  • Reduced UI bulk
    • Re-layed out to improve usability and hide things that you don’t really need (can easily be re-shown)
    • Minimum form size made much smaller for smaller screen sizes
  • Command History – just use the up/down arrow keys!
  • Added server settings for RAM allocation (limited to max 90% of available RAM and min 1024MiB)
  • Mod Testing : For devs. Testing against different server mods. Clients for the different mods to come in next version.
  • Bug fixes (some of which are):
    • Save settings not reliable in some situations
    • Improved output detection for Vanilla 1.5.1

Enjoy this fantastic new version!

MCSM : Official website launched!

Today I am officially launching the website for my Minecraft Server Manager project (hosted as open-source on CodePlex at mcsm.codeplex.com). The website can be found at:

www.manageminecraft.com

The site is designed with touch screens in mind and aimed at the latest in tablet, mobile and of course, Windows 8. I’ve designed it myself from scratch and I think it looks epic (and so does my good friend Stephen Hodgeson) so you should too! More content will be added to the site frequently and it will also act as a central host for the latest stable download along with supporting features such as:

  • Free server listings
  • Publicly available/up-datable ban list
  • Automatic updating of MCSM
  • Much more!
