ForgeAutoShutdown Mod 1.8, 1.7.10

ForgeAutoShutdown Mod 1.8, 1.7.10 is a server mod that automatically restart our FTB server every day. Given the nature of FTB, we needed this but I could not find a solution that involved complicated wrappers, rcon commands or control panels. I would like to share it to help other admins who may need it.

ForgeAutoShutdown Mod

I called it “ForgeAutoShutdown” as technically speaking, the mod’s only purpose is to shut down the server at a given time. It is up to a shell script, Windows batch file or service control to bring the server back up, but it is not necessary.


  • Scheduled hour and minute of shutdown within 24 hours of server uptime (e.g. 07:00 or 13:00)
  • Warns all players of scheduled shutdown every minute, five minutes prior
  • Configurable warning and kick messages
  • Player voting for a manual shutdown without admin intervention
  • Watchdog for automatic shutdown if server is hung (“stalled”) or TPS is too low for too long
  • Made for Forge 1.7.10 and 1.8
