I've been trying to work out how to download Minecraft worlds from the internet & upload them to my PS4. This is for casual split-screen play for my kid.
Here is an example of a map I downloaded. The map is marked as "PS4" & says:
the showcase video below got made on the PS4 by JuicyTaz201, but the map can be played on both the PS3 and the PS4
I tried using this guide to upload the file to my PS4 & had no luck. At this point I started to wonder if the file I was downloading was in the correct format & or if the instructions were correct.
Downloading a saved Minecraft world from the PS4 to a USB results in the following directory/file structure:
But the file format of the file I downloaded is very different:
From some experimenting the PS4 will upload files in the
I'm guessing that either:
- The file I downloaded cannot be used on PS4 Minecraft & the website I got the reference from shouldn't be trusted:
- or the file needs to be converted into
.binfiles that can be read by the PS4. If this is the case I have no idea how to do that.
I have a PS3, PS4, Ubuntu 18.04 laptop & Windows 10 laptop so if some conversion is needed hopefully I've got the right tools.
So coming back to my questions:
- What file format is used for Minecraft worlds on the PS4?
- How can I tell if a downloaded Minecraft map is PS4 compatible?
And finally is it possible to make .mcworld files PS4 compatible?
