Now, since the update you are probably pumped that Survival mode is around but you just don't want to create a new survival world and re-make everything you made in creative mode right?

Well, here's how you can convert your worlds into Survival mode.

You can do this for both iOS and Android, but this tutorial will be more towards Android.

First of all, I highly recommend you back up your worlds. The game files should be in the sdcard/games/com/com/Mojang/minecraftWorlds

Now choose a creative world that you want to change to Survival mode.

To do this, first make a new survival world in MineCraft. Then exit the game and go move some stuff on your sdcard.

Go to the directory and find the two folders where you want to change that creative world into survival mode.

Go into the folder where the creative world is and copy chunks.dat over to the survival world folder, and say yes to overwrite.

After that, run MineCraft and click on the Survival world that you made previously.

And there you go! You have successfully ported your Creative World into Survival Mode!

Also, I will add pictures and make a tutorial video on my channel, so subscribe!

Nope, only the world data. Flying is only in creative mode, unless theres a mod for it

Can you please simplify your instructions. Copy what link, go back to which minecraft, in game or in files? Etc

Please simplify and clearly explain your explanation.

Example: pick your created world in Ifile, then click edit and select chunks data, copy .... ( what link your on about)
