A Minecraft server proxy with unparalleled server support, scalability, and flexibility.
Velocity is licensed under the MIT license for ultimate permissiveness and expanding the pool of potential contributors and users.
- A codebase that is easy to dive into and consistently follows best practices for Java projects as much as reasonably possible.
- High performance: handle thousands of players on one proxy.
- A new, refreshing API built from the ground up to be flexible and powerful whilst avoiding design mistakes and suboptimal designs from other proxies.
- First-class support for Paper, Sponge, and Forge. (Other implementations may work, but we make every endeavor to support these server implementations specifically.)
Velocity is built with Gradle. We recommend using the
wrapper script (
./gradlew) as our CI builds using it.
It is sufficient to run
./gradlew build to run the full build cycle.
Once you've built Velocity, you can copy and run the
-all JAR from
proxy/build/libs. Velocity will generate a default configuration file
and you can configure it from there.
Alternatively, you can get the proxy JAR from the downloads page.
Velocity is currently in an alpha state: it is prone to change at any time and is currently only suitable for small servers and development/testing.
Velocity supports Minecraft 1.8-1.13.1, and has full support for Paper and Sponge. Forge is fully supported but mod compatibility may vary.
