How To Setup A Server Icon



How to set up the Minecraft 1.7 Server Icon --

As one of the great features of Minecraft 1.7+, there is an addition of being able to add your own server icon!  This little icon shows up on your Minecraft server list on the launcher and can greatly increase the attractiveness of your server.  Adding the server icon is very simple and here is how to do it:

1. Make a picture that is 64 x 64 pixel in size
2. You can customize it anyway you want, as long as the dimensions are 64 x 64.  We recommend your favorite graphics program to create this (Photoshop is good!).
3. Save the file as "server-icon.png" (the filename must be this exactly - no capitals etc...).
4. Put the picture into the root directory of your Minecraft server files via the FTP (where the world folders are located).
5. Restart the server.

Now go check your server list and your server icon should show up.  Give it a few minutes if it doesn't pop up right away!
