The difficulty of the server determines the number of mobs, player health, level of starvation, villagers becoming zombies, and much more. Currently, there are four different settings to choose from, which are Peaceful, Easy, Normal, and Hard. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about them.
Here is a summary of the differences between each of the difficulty levels are.
Hostile mobs do not spawn naturally, except for a select few that do not deal damage to a player. When being on a higher difficulty and changing to Peaceful, all hostile mobs are automatically despawned. Additionally, player health is restored much quicker on this difficulty.
Hostile mobs do spawn on this difficulty, however, they do little damage compared to Normal level. Player health does not decrease when they are starving.
The default value, hostile mobs deal normal damage and a player's health will decrease by 1 heart when they are starving. Additionally, villagers have a 1/2 chance of becoming a zombie when they are killed by one.
Hostile mobs cause more damage than Normal and players can starve to death. Villages will become zombies when they are killed by one and zombies can break through doors.
