How to install Behavior Packs on EXISTING worlds:
1. 
Log in to your BisectHosting games control panel.

2. Stop your server.


3. Download the desired behavior pack on your desktop. (It will be in a .mcpack or .mcaddon format)


4. Right-click the mc addon and extract it to an empty folder. (7-Zip: 7Zip>Extract Here)
          Note: There should be two separate folders that are extracted. These include <pack_name>_r AND <pack_name>_b.


5. On the control panel, click File Manager, then open the behavior_packs folder. Upload the <pack_name>_b folder you extracted from step 4.




6. Using the same method as step 5, upload the <pack_name>_r folder to the resource_packs folder in the root directory.



7. Restart your server to apply those changes.


8. Return to your desktop where you have the two folders saved. Open the <pack_name>_b folder and Edit the manifest.json file. 
         Note: We recommend using Notepad++ or you can just edit using basic notepad.


9. On the control panel, go to the desired world save directory and click New File. Name the file world_behavior_packs.json.



10.
Paste the following text into the empty file:
         Note: Replace the pack-id with the UUID from the manifest.json file in <pack_name>_b. (Ex: "8c3fa9e4-3407-11eb-adc1-0242ac120002")
         Note: Replace the version with the numbers from the manifest.json file in <pack_name>_b (Ex: [1, 0, 0])

{
   {
       "pack-id": "Paste UUID from manifest.json file"
       "version": [Paste version numbers from manifest.json file]
   }
} 



11. 
Click Create File.


12. Repeat steps 8-11 for the <pack_name>_r folder/resource_packs folder
