In a previous series of posts, we built a rather simple Debian Minecraft server. After the initial setup, you may find the random world that was created not to your liking for any number of reasons. A task you might want to perform at this point is to generate a new Minecraft world.
Since the server has no GUI, nor did we install any third party management software, this is a task that will need to be performed from the command line. So we will walk through the process, in this post, of saving an existing world, setting a seed for world creation, actually creating a new world, and if desired, deleting a world. (more…)
