Is it possible to turn a Minecraft single player map into multi-player server?

  • I've got some funky minecraft maps that I'd like to share with my friends. However, they're, more often than not, far away and unable to stop by my computer and see what I've wrought.

    I was wondering if there was a way to transform a singleplayer map into a multiplayer one, such that I could share my singleplayer creations remotely?

    All minecraft maps are capable of supporting multiple players now, so this question has been rendered obsolete.

    Isn't deleting this a bit excessive if someone's caught on a (very) old version? Just update the question to be "in versions earlier than ___..."

    I just googled for exactly this problem, since I was experimenting with older versions. Then I saw it was "too localized". I would suggest reopening this.

    Yes, just copy the world you want to share to minecraft server directory, delete old world named "world", and rename the directory of your single player world to "world". You can insert single player world into SMP.

    You don't necessarily need to rename it to world - you can just change the name from world in the "server.properties" file.

    @soulBit I just told the easier method, and yes, i know you can change server.properties, but for beginners, it could be really confusing.

    Hey, what's SMP?

    @tobych Survival MultiPlayer, probably a legacy abbreviation by now.

    Copying is a good suggestion, but isn't a perfect solution. I would like to sync changes betweeen the two, or better still, share a single save for use by both single player and server-based games.
