How do i change my spawning point on my own server?

#1TheToxicFlame01Posted 1/13/2012 11:07:59 PM
Ive made my very own multiplayer server only to find out i spawn in the middle of the ocean! If anyone could supply me with help of how to get out of this mess without swimming until i find land and make a bed, or deleting my server and making a new one, it would be much appreciated. Preferably info if i can change the spawn point. Thx

^^^ Ignore him.


If you use a bukket server, there are plugins to change the location where people will initially spawn in the world. I don't use bukket so I do not know the names of the plugins, but I do know that they exist.

If you're using the official minecraft_server.jar, then ask someone else as I do not know the answer.

if you are playing MP with Bukkit, you can use the Essentials plugin to access a whole bunch of cool commands, but /setspawn is the one that sets your spawn to the block you are standing on.

Thanks, i guess i'll just go off forever into the ocean until i find land and /setspawn. But if anyone else knows how to fix this, help will be most appreciated

Sounds like you should just make a new world.

You could make yourself a op then change your game mode so that your in creative. Fly to some land make a bed and sleep in it so your spawn is now there. So when everyone else joins your server just teleport them to you.

This seems rather strange to me, you made a server world got a bad one so instead of remaking it you want to rage at the makers for having a random world generator?

if you dont want a new world for whatever reason, perhaps open the world file in WorldEdit and manually change the spawn point.

then just /suicide ingame and you will be at the new spawn.
