After multiple at home servers crashing, I'm trying to decide if purchasing a realm would be worth it.

My only question is if you can move pre existing worlds into a new realm? So say I purchase a realm for 13/month, could I upload the world we're using now onto it?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

  • @ChaseC, I knew this was possible, but I am not sure if we have the same privileges with Moajang Relams? – ElliotM Jun 26 '14 at 13:16

    @ChaseC Realms has a whole different set of tools than regular servers if I understand correctly. It launched with a minimal subset of the server management tools you had with a full server. – Yamikuronue Jun 26 '14 at 13:44

    I'm inclined to agree with @Yamikuronue. Realms is a different beast from running a server on a headless machine in your house or on a VPS provider. – MBraedley Jun 26 '14 at 14:44

MrLemon is correct as of Minecraft 1.7.9. However, Minecraft 1.7.10 came out literally today, June 26; Searge tweeted that it was released between MrLemon's answer being posted and mine being posted. It includes the following changes for Realms:

World uploader – upload your local world to Realms (finally!)

Command blocks! (finally!)

Player activity monitor – when and for how long a player has been online (see who plays when you sleep!)

Access to more server settings (yey!)

Improvements in Realms UI (also yey!)

--Source (emphasis mine)

So yes, you can. Happy Realms-uploading day!
