Whether you are a beginner or an expert, it is straightforward to start creating your private Hytale server. The configuration is straightforward, as is the installation of mods and plugins.

You can easily create your server with your Hytale Server Hosting services.

How a Hytale server works

Before going further, we will see the main lines of the Hytale servers. First of all, be aware that the Hypixel studio (the creators of the game) manages the most massive Minecraft servers worldwide. You can imagine, their own game is access to the modding!

First, the server version is distributed in open-source. This is important! Often criticized for his cousin Minecraft (developers have to be imaginative to understand the internal work of the game at each update), on Hytale, we do not have this problem! The creation of mods and plugins is facilitated. And yes, Hypixel thought of you modders friends!

If you come from the Minecraft universe, you should not be too out of the way. The primary programming language used for modding and scripting is Java. A reliable choice, the game benefits the community of modders Minecraft, promising the creation of script, mods, plugins, and maps ever more original. Also, many tools like Hytale Model Maker are available to create content easily: maps, skins, 3D models, textures, cutscenes, the list is long!

The development of mods and plugins is also facilitated by hot-reloading. This feature allows you to avoid restarting your game every time you edit a script! If a change is detected in one of your files, the server automatically reloads the plugin. The Hytale development is thus much faster than on Minecraft. You can even edit your scripts directly from an in-game editor.

Finally, the game has a feature to synchronize resources between a server and a player, when connected to the server. Players will be able to connect to a modded server easily, files (3D models, maps, textures, skins, etc.) are downloaded automatically when the player joins the server. No more launcher!
