Game setup

Novice users should first do the following steps:

  2. In addition, you will need to set the basic settings, which include among other things, the level of complexity and sound settings.
  3. There are four levels of difficulty in the game: survival, creative, adventure, and hardcore. The level of difficulty mainly affects whether monsters or mobs can appear at night or out of the ground. In addition, at a difficult level, you will also meet with zombies, which can destroy wooden doors and kill the character.
  4. In multiplayer mode, you do not need to create your own world. You can join someone else's game. In order to choose a multiplayer server, you need to go to the game website, for example, on. After you have chosen the server on which you are going to start developing the land, you can proceed to the settings of the network game.
