With addons, Minecraft bedrock edition introduces a new way of expanding your Minecraft experience. You can find out more about addons here: https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/addons/
If you have ever looked at how to install such packs on a server, you will probably have noticed how very complicated and incomprehensible it all is.
On Aternos, the installation of addons is as easy as moving a folder into another one.
All addons, no matter if it is a behavior pack or a resource pack, can be uploaded directly to the packs folder of your server. Our system then automatically scans your add-on packs and will do all of the complicated work for you.
Pocketmine does not fully support addons yet. Only resource packs can be uploaded to the resource_packs folder of your server. In order for them to work, they also need to be added to the resource_packs.yml file, which should be generated automatically when your server is started for the first time.
If the file does not exist, you can create it in your resource_packs folder with the following content:
#This configuration file controls global resources used on your PocketMine-MP server.
#Choose whether players must use your chosen resource packs to join the server.
#NOTE: This will do nothing if there are no resource packs in the stack below.
#Resource packs here are applied from bottom to top. This means that resources in higher packs will override those in lower packs.
#Entries here must indicate the filename of the resource pack.
# - natural.zip
# - vanilla.zip
#If you want to force clients to use vanilla resources, you must place a vanilla resource pack in your resources folder and add it to the stack here.
