Minecraft! in Video Games Posted yesterday at 05:59 AM 16 hours ago, sh20000sh said: I tried to open my own server and it was actually not different with single player. Only difference was access from multiplayer tab. Well....there is a difference. Servers allow anyone to play anywhere at anytime (if you keep the server running 24/7) and they have a feature called plugins that allow for you to add mod-like features to your server without having to download a mod client. The plugins are also not available in single player.
