Depends, Windows 10 is the modern one and has support for realms etc (online servers you rent for cheap, I thick Devlin still has one).
Java is the traditional one, you can run your own server etc. not sure if it gets updated the same.

Windows 10 one is also cross platform so if you have a realm (yours or others) you can play it on any platform (Windows, Mac, Xbox, PS4, Switch, Android and iOS) so is the best from that point of view too.

Personally I would go Windows 10 version it means if you want cross play you can and stuff can’t be migrated from java to w10 as far as I’m aware.

From what I gather the Java version has a lot more mod support as well?

Yeah java is where the mods are, personally I don’t like them so that’s never bothered me.

Realms seem to be in java, also.

Check it out if you want guys, and have fun. Try not to steal my bed :lol:

You can only play this server with the java edition of Minecraft though, so PC/Laptop only. It's not workable with bedrock edition which is the cross -[lay version, sorry. I thought java may be more enjoyable as it supposedly does more.

I think I may go with the java version from the sounds of things. Half of what's got me remotely interested in it is messing around with some mods.

Might be a while before I get around to picking it up to try out though.

Well, so far zero people interested :lol: I'll give it until the middle of next month and see whether to keep the server going.

Just got access to the closed Beta!

Played through an hour of the game and well....

It's Diablo with a Minecraft skin. Definitely some enjoyment to be had though, and to that end I have 3 shiny beta invites for the first three people to request them in the thread.

Check out some of our stuff!
