This is a feature that allows you to select groups of people who can enter a world.
Private servers are set so that only people who you invite can enter.
However, there are options to “allow the server host’s friends to enter without an invite” and “allow anyone with the link or via portal to join”.
Party servers are open to any friends of users on the server.
Specifics are presented in the table below.
How to use Private/Party Servers
Choosing a new server type (Mobile)
For the mobile version, you can create a new server without joining the world first.
Head to the description of the world, and there will be a plus (+) button next to “Go”. Click on the plus to choose your server type.
After selecting your desired server type, select “Go” to enter your new server.
Creating a new server from a world you are currently in
Open the menu by pressing the triple lined bar at the upper left corner. To the right, you should see a description of the world you are in. You can select “Play in a new server”, which is found at the bottom.
Select the server type from the pop-up window.
Choosing the server type of a world you are going to visit next
Open the menu by pressing the triple lined bar at the upper left corner. Select the “Explore” tab at the very top to open the Explore tab.
From the “Explore” menu, select the world you would like to visit next.
Selecting the world opens up a more detailed description of the world. Here, you can select the “Play in a new server” option.
Choose the server type and settings from the pop-up window.
Choosing the right server type for you
The default server type is “Public”. The “Party” and “Private” servers place restrictions on people who can enter this new server.
One large difference between the “Public” server compared to the other two types (“Party” and “Private”) is whether auto joining is possible from the official Cluster website. If you select “Party” or “Private”, users will not be able to join your server from the official website.
For details concerning server type, please refer to the table at the beginning of this article.
Below is a description of the private server.
By default, only invited users can enter private server worlds, so portals cannot be placed. However, by turning on “Anyone can join via the portal or the URL”, users will be able to set portals.
