Minecraft

With your own minecraft server, you can display a server icon next to your server name in the server list. It looks something like this:

Requirements

The following requirements must be met for your server image:

  • Min. Minecraft Version 1.7.2 must be used, versions before that do not support a server icon
  • The icon must be in PNG format
  • The icon must have a size of 64 x 64 pixels

If these conditions are met, nothing stands in your way. :-)

Uploading a server icon to the server

In order to display the icon in the server list, you have to upload the image to the server. This will require you to use FTP. If you do not know how to use FTP, please read: How do I connect to my FTP server?

Now you just have to upload the icon to the server via FTP with the name server-icon.png. If you did that, all you have to do is reboot the server and that's it. You can then view the image directly in the server list.

For testing you can use this picture:

Removing a server icon

To remove the server icon, simply delete the image via FTP.
