How to: Have a Server Icon

We have a video tutorial on how to add an icon to your server:


A server icon is an image that appears on the left side of the server name on the Multiplayer list of your Minecraft client. 

Server Icon

Although servers do not have a set server icon by default, all Shockbyte servers come with a pre-made icon as shown on the screenshot above. You can change this server icon to your liking.

Before doing so, the image you use must follow these specifications:

  • Image size/dimension: 64 pixels by 64 pixels
  • File type: .PNG
  • File name: server-icon
