Sometimes, you may find yourself moving from Realms to Minehut, and need to transfer all your progress. Lucky for you, this will tell you all about it!

How to transfer worlds

Downloading your realms world

To download your world, first you’ll want to go to the Minecraft Realms section in your title screen, then you can follow these instructions to download the world:

  1. Select the realm you want to download the world from.

  2. Click the Configure Realm button at the bottom of the screen.

  3. Click the World Backups button.

  4. Click Download latest, and then confirm that you want to download the world.




Uploading your world to the server

Now that you’ve downloaded your world, we can move onto uploading it to the server:

  1. Open up your file manager of choice (Finder, File Explorer, File Manager, etc.)

  2. Navigate to your Minecraft folder, you can see the locations of the folder below:

Windows %appdata%/.minecraft

MacOS ~/Library/Application Support/Minecraft

Linux ~/.minecraft

  1. Open up the folder named saves, this folder contains all the worlds you’ve created, including the realms world you downloaded.

  2. Find the realms world (the name of the folder will be the name of the realm), and put it in a .zip file, then upload the zip to a file hosting service like file.io or Dropbox. If you’re unsure how to upload your world, you can learn more about it here.

  3. Once you’ve uploaded your world to your file hosting service of choice, go in game and run /ul world (name of world, must not include spaces or any other special characters) (the link the file hosting service gave you) (note this command requires op to run.)

  4. If all goes according to plan, your world will have successfully been uploaded, and you can find it by running /worlds.
