Quilt is in beta. Here be dragons - there may be issues, but we'll fix them as quickly as we can!

If you'd like to help us test Quilt, please feel free to install it, try it, and let us know how you get on!

Server

Before getting started, you’ll need to make sure you download a copy of the Quilt installer. You’ll also need to make sure you’ve installed Java.

Download

GUI Installation

Once you have a copy of the Quilt installer downloaded, follow these steps:

  1. Find the Quilt installer you downloaded and run it
  2. Ensure that you have the Server tab selected
  3. Select the version of Minecraft you wish to install Quilt for
  4. Select the version of the Quilt loader you’d like to use
  5. Select the location you’d like to install the server to
  6. Check the Download server jar box
  7. Click the Install button

This will download a copy of the Minecraft server to the location you specified, and install Quilt to it, providing a launcher JAR to start the server with. Once that’s done, create a .bat (for Windows) or .sh (for Mac/Linux) file, with the following contents:

java -jar quilt-server-launch.jar nogui

That’s all there is to it - use the corresponding .bat or .sh file to start the server for the first time, then stop it (with /stop or ctrl+c) and set it up as you normally would.

CLI Installation

Once you have a copy of the Quilt installer downloaded, you’ll need to run it from your terminal, replacing INSTALLER_VERSION and MINECRAFT_VERSION as needed:

java -jar quilt-installer-INSTALLER_VERSION.jar \
  install server MINECRAFT_VERSION \
  --download-server

This will download a copy of the Minecraft server to server/ and install Quilt to it, providing a launcher JAR to start the server with. Once that’s done, create a .bat (for Windows) or .sh (for Mac/Linux) file, with the following contents:

java -jar quilt-server-launch.jar nogui

That’s all there is to it - use the corresponding .bat or .sh file to start the server for the first time, then stop it (with /stop or ctrl+c) and set it up as you normally would.

Installing Mods

Installing mods is a fairly simple process:

  1. Download the mods you’d like to install
  2. Create a folder named mods alongside your server files, if one doesn’t already exist
  3. Copy your mod files into the mods/ folder
  4. Ensure you have also added the Quilt Standard Libraries, which you can find on Modrinth

Launch your installation, and the mods should be available immediately. If you run into any issues, please take a look at the troubleshooting page, or join us on Discord to ask for support!
