StormCloud is a standalone server for Risk of Rain designed from the ground up, to be customisable and stable.


Getting the code

Clone this repository with git first of all - the clone URL should be on the right hand side of this page.

Setting up your environment

StormCloud is written using Java 8 - so you'll need JDK 8 to work on it. We recommend using IntelliJ IDEA to work on StormCloud (though of course Eclipse or NetBeans should work too) Using IntelliJ IDEA, import the project from Maven and allow it to synchronize with the pom.xml automatically. Create a Run Configuration, set the main class to StormCloud, the classpath to your stormcloud module, and the rest should be set by default. You should now be set to run the server from within IntelliJ. If you want to make IntelliJ build with Maven instead of the default compiler, you can switch the Make task for a Maven goal with the command line directive clean install


StormCloud is currently build with Maven To build the StormCloud jar, use mvn clean install - this will create stormcloud-x.y.z.jar in the target directory.


As with any other command-line Java application, run StormCloud with:

java -Xms512M -Xmx1024M -jar stormcloud-x.y.z.jar

(Of course, you can change max/min stack size according to the amount of resources you have available and desired performance)
