Minecraft package for Synology NAS

UPDATE – The instructions and notes on this page apply to both the Minecraft and the CraftBukkit packages hosted on my repo. Now works on QorIQ CPU Synology models!

Minecraft is an intriguing game. I only recently bought it after a friend had recommended it. There’s a lot to like: the striking retro visual style, the mellow sporadic music, exploring the procedurally generated world, the logical way items are crafted, multiplayer collaboration, and emergent gameplay. Notch its creator certainly deserves the fortune he’s now sitting on. I thoroughly recommend you watch this short documentary all about it.

Minecraft Package Info

Right after I released the Java package for Synology a couple of people mentioned that they wanted to use it for installing a Minecraft server. Now that I have the game, I decided to try that too. I had assumed that the ARM CPUs would not be capable of running it, and the first tests seemed to confirm this. I decided it would be worth creating a package nonetheless since the Intel CPU NAS units would be ok, especially with their extra RAM. However, with a little performance tuning it actually runs acceptably (no lag when mining blocks) on my ARM powered DS111 which only has 256MB. The CPU load is 100% for a while at first, but soon after playing it settles down to around 60%. I have briefly tested with two players connected and after a bit of lag at first (one second delay to mine a block) it does seem to settle down.

Installation

  • This package is not CPU specific. If you have Java it will run. At the moment that means ARM, Intel and QorIQ PowerPC processors, but not the older PowerPCs.
  • In the User Control Panel in DSM, enable the User Homes service.
  • Install the package directly from Package Center in DSM. In Settings -> Package Sources add my package repository URL which is http://packages.pcloadletter.co.uk. You will need to install either one of my Java SE for Embedded packages first (Java 6 or 7).

Notes

  • The package fetches the minecraft server jar file from Mojang as it is installed. I am complying with their wish that no one redistributes it.
  • The server daemon script checks the amount of system RAM and scales the Java heap size appropriately. It also applies a few performance tweaks to Java to try to reduce garbage collection latency.
  • The first time you run the server it will create a new world, which can take a few minutes. You cannot interrupt this but you can check on progress by repeatedly viewing the Log tab.
  • Because the time investments in playing Minecraft can be so considerable, when you uninstall the package it will back up the world folder and settings to /volume1/public/minecraftworld.todaysdate.bak to prevent accidental deletion.
  • The package supports upgrades to future versions while preserving the world folder and server settings.
  • If you want to transplant an existing world folder into the server, copy it to /volume1/@appstore/Minecraft. You will also need to run chown -R minecraft /volume1/@appstore/Minecraft to grant ownership of the files to the daemon user.
  • The first time you run the package, the server config file /volume1/@appstore/Minecraft/server.properties is generated. The next time it is launched, my script reduces the default draw distance for ARM CPUs from 10 chunks to 7. This was appropriate for my DS111 to prevent latency when mining blocks, but you may wish to reduce this further on the J series NAS units which have less RAM and slower CPUs. Other server files (white-list.txt etc.) are found in the same folder. For CraftBukkit the files are in the folder /volume1/@appstore/Craftbukkit/server.properties (note the capitalization – the CraftBukkit project seemed to change this after I had already created the package with a lower case ‘b’).
  • The simplest way to edit these config files if you’re not really confident with Linux is to install Merty’s Config File Editor package, which requires the official Synology Perl package to be installed too (since DSM 4.2). Load Config File Editor, then in the dropdown menu edit Config File Editor’s own config (it’s the last in the list) and add the lines:
    /volume1/@appstore/Minecraft/server.properties,Minecraft-properties
    /volume1/@appstore/Minecraft/white-list.txt,Minecraft-whitelist
    /volume1/@appstore/Minecraft/ops.txt,Minecraft-ops

    Make sure to add an extra blank line underneath, save, then relaunch CFE and you’ll have entries for Minecraft in the dropdown. You’ll need to restart the Minecraft package for any changes to take effect.
  • It was a bit tricky to get the server to shut down gracefully without just killing the Java process. We need it to shutdown properly so it saves the active chunks to disk first. Most of the guides on the Net use the screen binary which isn’t included with Synology DSM, and I didn’t want to have to make a version of the package for each CPU architecture. I found that I could use tail to send the last line of the file /tmp/stdin.minecraft to the server (/tmp/stdin.craftbukkit for the CraftBukkit package). This is how the stop command is issued. You could send your own commands, for instance echo say Hello players >> /tmp/stdin.minecraft. You can verify that the command was received by looking at the server log in Package Center.
  • The server runs on the default TCP port for Minecraft (25565) so you will need to port forward this on your router if you want it to be publicly accessible.

    Hi again!
    I upgraded DS713+ RAM to 2GB.
    Minecraft is ok, accesible online, everyghint look good.

    Now… i can’t make craftbukkit tu have state of Run. I wan’t to use craftbukkit, not vannila.
    The package from Community (1.8.3-0016) is installing ok but won’t start (Run). The status is Stopped all the time.
    I installed a german version from one of the link above and is ok… state running.

    I have to STOP the other minecraft server vannila version?
    If i install craftbukket … it’s a vannila replacement? Stand-alone, or is like a plugin for original server?

    Thanks…

        I just made a static page on the blog to cover Minecraft stuff. I would welcome yours (and others) participation in this. Particularly since you’re doing so many other projects on Synology and probably will make some install script updates as DSM progresses, if you could let me know through Github or email or whatever, I would appreciate it.

    Hi, is there a chance to run the program on the new DSM 6 Beta 2? It is always giving the error about a missing user home, but this service is running already. To run the minecraft server only a downgrade to 5.2 seems the solution.

    Reply
    1. T.K. Backman

      Reality check: While you can run a non-vanilla Minecraft server on a Synology box (I ran Hexxit), it will only support a couple of users and then it will be exceedingly slow. Sadly, I would recommend you consider a Minecraft server hosting company rental, especially if you want to run a large number of mods or have a more than a couple of players online simultaneously.

    Hello, just to say THANK YOU, installed Synology’s DSM in a Xpenoboot machine, then used your files and worked like a charm after some adjustments.
    Now in a step further: added another “world” using PuTTy, accesing the server as root to copy the world created in singleplayer in my pc. Works great. I’m usig Minecraft 1.8 with many mods.

    Hi out there, i have finished my work, trying to fix the problems in Synology 6.0-7274 BETA. And now here it is .. (for details on install view the protocol link in the package center for all packages )

    TS3: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwYSORGhMcYPTjQ0TVhIMU5ONWM
    Token comes with Mail (if active) and is also in the daemon folder. View the adminlog.txt.
    Install takes some time because server starts 2 times. First start to generate the token and second time in normal mode with an active ts3server.ini. All you have to do is to wait for it an then insert you token. If you want to change you “super admin password” stop the server, open up >>/var/packages/TS3Server/scripts/launcher.sh<>MEIN_KENNWORT<< into your wanted password. Start server again. Finish!

    I had posted a message here previously when Minecraft/Craftbukkit appeared not to be running on DSM 6. I had it running on DSM 5, but when I started it up after the DSM 6 upgrade, it appeared not to start; however, I subsequently noted that although the status shows as stopped, it is in fact running; this tells me that the launcher.sh appears not to “see” that the package is in fact running. Seems like the solution lies in amending the launcher or the start-stop-status scripts. In the meantime, I am going to CLI to “sudo killall java” to stop the package. Any ideas how to fix the script?

        Manfred: Thanks. I actually did Spigot, too, just hadn’t come back here and posted. I have all 3 on my repo at 1.9.4. Running Spigot on my Syno now…

      Thanks a lot, I would like to know can I enable more ram to the package. I try to edit the launcher.sh.It failed I can’t even start the package.

        Hi, change the following code in “launcher.sh”

        if [ $RAM -le 128 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=80M
        elif [ $RAM -le 256 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=192M
        elif [ $RAM -le 512 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=448M
        elif [ $RAM -le 1024 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=896M
        elif [ $RAM -le 2048 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=1792M
        elif [ $RAM -gt 2048 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=2048M
        fi

        .. into ..

        if [ $RAM -le 128 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=80M
        elif [ $RAM -le 256 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=192M
        elif [ $RAM -le 512 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=448M
        elif [ $RAM -le 1024 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=896M
        elif [ $RAM -le 2048 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=1792M
        elif [ $RAM -gt 2048 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=2048M
        elif [ $RAM -gt 4096 ]; then
        JAVA_MAX_HEAP=4096M
        fi

    Updated from your last version, but now can’t connect to the server! If i try to log the server in package center there is no data at all. weird :-)

      Same thing here with 1.9.4-0028. Nothing happens, not even log files. I was able to launch the server via a java command line using ssh. Everything seemed fine with that.

    Hi,

    I just downloaded the minecraft pack. But I still get the error: The User Home service is not enabled.
