A cloud server is a server ran through the blockheads, basically using a network we call the cloud. It’s the most common type of server around, you simply create or join one through the app, just a typical server for you. They cost Time crystals to run and will require in app purchases for 1.7.

A mac server is one run on through an Apple Mac book, or possibly an app. I’m not 100% sure on the details myself. People can send you links to them so you can play on any device, I believe.

Also, mac servers are 100% free!

I’ll try to find some good links to topics that explain it well, there are tons, varying from creating your own mac server, or having someone host a mac server for you. You can reply with the specifics of what answers you’d like :slight_smile:

Ok, I’m a noob at sharing links to topics, but here’s my first try: Guide: How to set up a Mac server

OR you can try this:

You can use these if you are interested in setting one up yourself, or simply reading these gives you a better understanding of the mac server concept.

Mac servers are hosted through the app and don’t appear in the multiplayer list

However they are free, unlike cloud


#4

Mac servers have to be joined either by going into join server > advanced > online IP/port, or clicking a link.

They aren’t 100% free unless someone else hosts it. It takes a tiny amount of electricity.

I also have this same problem :thinking::thinking:


#6

How do you find your IP once you have made the mac server @Wingysam @SomeRandomUser @AlliG8tor


#7

The easiest way is to use whatsmyip(dot)com


#8

Should I do it at school or at home?


#9

Depends. Do you want the schools IP, or your house IP?

Setting up a Mac server at school is not only a bad idea, it would be very difficult. Part of the process will require you to configure the router through the admin commands. Probably not possible at school…


#10

So at home!


#11

When you’re home, go to an IP finder, my favourite is http://icanhazip.com.


#12

Or just Google “what is my ip” :joy:


#13

Yep, my strategy too! :joy: My friend got creeped out when I googled that in her house… I agreed to delete it since it was just to show her… I’m no stalker or anything.


#14

Even google “ip”.
