Some of you out there might be wondering how you can convert Minecraft java edition worlds to be playable in the Windows 10 version.
In this blog I'm going to show you two methods (unfortunately none of the methods work with version 1.13 worlds 😒)

Method 1, using MCC Toolchest PE
This method requires the program MCC Toolchest PE which can be downloaded here.
Install the program.
Then open Minecraft Windows 10 edition and create a new world.
Next, you open the program you installed, MCC Toolchest PE and click on file, and then open.
Then select the new world you created.
And then you click tools, convert, then convert from pc.
Then you click on the folder icon and select the Java edition world you wanna convert to Windows 10
Then click convert.
Wait a little bit.
When it says conversion completed, click close.
Afterwards you gotta click the save icon to save the converted world.
Go back to Minecraft Windows 10 edition and open that new world you created.
The world should be converted from your Java edition world. enjoy

Method 2, using Anvil to LevelDB converter.
This method requires a program created by pmc user Empire92, which can be downloaded here.
The program is a .jar file, we'll double click on that later.
Open your MC java edition world and load in some chunks (or else you will not get most of the world converted properly).
Once that's done, close Minecraft and double click on that jar file you downloaded.
Then you click the upper "browse" button and go to your MC java edition world folder (where ever you have that).
Then you click on the ">>Convert World<<" button. Once It says conversion is complete, wait until save compaction is complete.
Once it save compaction is complete (There should be a message notifying you that compaction is complete). open Minecraft Windows 10 edition and the converted world should there. If not, it might have been saved else where on your PC.
Enjoy your MC java edition world on Minecraft Windows 10.

yo method 1 is ko, and method 2 download link is dead
Actually method 1 works (almost) perfectly!
I was doing a.dumbdumb and trying to open on the tool with the game open ok mc.
Only small thing I noticed is that I lost the enchantments on items, other than that works like a charm. Kudos!

Edit 2:
Found some other strange things, there are some terrain blocks dirt like, that are named Unknown, that cab be picked up, but bot placed, also I think there a lot mor mob spwan, same difficulty level, but they spwan much more, even during daylight

All I get is the option to convert to Bedrock or Java. No option to "convert from pc".

Java is the new PC option.

Hmm, this seems interesting, but unfortunately I can't really test it out due the fact that you need to pay to be able to convert worlds. =(
