Installing Thermos

Your server setup requires some changes to work with Thermos:

  1. It is highly recommended to create a backup of your server before switching.

  2. Delete these two folders "bin" & "libraries".
    * - one folder might not exist.

  3. Grab the latest version of Thermos from here.
    Note: Make sure you grab the latest version that was built for the forge version you're using. These downloads also come with the libraries pre-packed with the server jar.

  4. Extract the zip file to the server's folder & also move the jar file of thermos to the server's folder.

  5. Edit your server launch script so that the Java line looks like this:
    Replace the <version> with the version of the current Thermos build.

    java -XX:+UseG1GC -XX:+UseFastAccessorMethods -XX:+OptimizeStringConcat -XX:MetaspaceSize=1024m -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=2048m -XX:+AggressiveOpts -XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=10 -XX:+UseStringDeduplication -Xms4G -Xmx6G -XX:hashCode=5 -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -jar Thermos-1.7.10-<version>.jar --log-strip-color
  6. You're good to go!
