So, I just joined this site a few days ago, and wanted to find some servers to play on and maps and resource packs to download to play... but I'm having some issues with doing either... can anyone help me?? :(

I cannot get any server I try to save to my servers list to let me join... it always tells me 'Unable to join world', but I'm confused because I know the server/world is real, but why won't it let me join it...? :'(

And for the maps/resource packs, I cannot get any of them to show up as options... why is this happening? ,>.<,



Help is most appreciated,
ClarytheRanger

You mentioned that you play on Pocket Edition. Most everything on this site is made for the Java Edition. I don't believe it's possible for PE players to join Java servers, but you can join any servers made for the Bedrock Edition. Here are some instructions on how to use custom resource packs on PE https://mcpedl.com/how-to-install-minecraft-pe-texture-packs-for-android/

Oh... well that's great... I was trying to join Preston's Cosmic Prisons server, but, I guess I never will be... ,~.~,
What's the difference between Java and Bedrock Edition? I know Java is pc or such, but that's about it for the comparisons of both... :/

Java Edition is the original and only runs on PC. Bedrock Edition was created after Microsoft acquired Minecraft and includes both mobile and Windows 10, and it is crossplay compatible, meaning players on mobile or Win10 can play together. Though they are both called 'Minecraft', they are separate games. Java and Bedrock players cannot play together on the same servers. It can be pretty confusing with all the different versions ^^

When you go to a server's page, alot of the time they post what server version they're on. Eg;

Just above the IP is the server version. So check your minecraft version, you can do that by, clicking the arrow on the right side of where it says "play".



For Resource packs you have to download it, the press the windows button that looks like this either on your keyboard or your screen.



And typing "%appdata%" Then going to the folder named .minecraft



Then, simply dragging the resource pack from your downloads to the "recourcepacks" folder.

-------
Then once you've chosen your version of minecraft you want to play, go to options, and then resource packs. To load a pack click the arrow on the image of the pack, and wait a minute. Depending on the pack you want it'll take a few seconds or even minutes before it loads. Once thats done, go to multiplayer, add server, paste the server IP address in the "Server Address" portion.

------
Enjoy!

Thank you for replying! Unfortunately I don't think I can do this because I don't have a computer or Xbox to play on, so I can't use %AppData% ... ;-;

I use Minecraft PE (because I unfortunately don't have the above), and it's the latest version currently out, 1.10.0 ;-;

resource packs download them first of all. second hold Win+R (the windows key plus "R") and type or select %appdata% go to .minecraft and find the resourcepack folder. double click that and paste it in there. hope that helped ^^

server: go to the server's page and copy paste the IP. NOTE! check the game version! if its a 1.8 or whatever server its not compatible with game version 1.13.2 for example.

You need to copy the IP of a server and enter it in your Minecraft client. Make sure you're on the right Minecraft version and update. Java / Bedrock? Which update version?

Also note that you won't be able to join whitelist (exclusive) servers without submitting an application. Another thing to keep in mind is that you shouldn't have any spaces in your IP field (an easily made mistake).

To use a resource pack you have to save it in the right folder in your %appdata% > .minecraft folder in your file directory. Merely downloading it won't cause it to show up in the game.
