Minecraft Forge 1.6.4 in Docker


Example with Modpack "Life in the Woods"

Create default settings

Create data container:

docker create -v /data --name litw_data axeclbr/data /bin/true

Let Minecraft create default files (settings etc.) in data container:

docker run --rm -it --volumes-from litw_data axeclbr/forge

Kill container with Ctrl+C

Customize settings

First copy the download-link from the server-version of the Modpack from the Life-In-The-Woods-Website.

Mount data volumes into container with edit abilities, like this:

docker run --rm -it --volumes-from litw_data axeclbr/workbench

# Move to data dir    
$ cd /data

# Download Server-Modpack
$ curl -L [Download-Link from above] -o /tmp/ 
$ unzip /tmp/ -d /data/mods/

Update World Generator

Change the World Generator from DEFAULT to Biomes O' Plenty.

In file set level-type=BIOMESOP.

Then delete the already generated world in the world folder!

Start container with your custom settings

With default memory:

docker run --rm -it \
--volumes-from litw_data \
--net=host \

With more RAM and in background:

docker run -d \
--volumes-from litw_data \
--net=host \
axeclbr/forge \
java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar /opt/forge/minecraft.jar

Backup your Minecraft data

To export the data from your data container into a tar-file, you can execute:

docker run --rm --volumes-from litw_data -v $(pwd):/backup axeclbr/workbench tar cvf /backup/backup.tar /data

You should have a file named backup.tar in your current directory with all your important Minecraft worlds and settings in it.
