So, I created a lan server a few days ago on my own computer. My friend, who now lives in my house, and i have been working quite feverishly on a very elaborate world, complete with a very large strip mine, three story castle, and massive tree house (planted by hand, no editing) Today i start up the server, log into the ip address we always use and BOOM new world, nothing from before... Is there a way to recover my old world, or did I just find out why this game was so inexpensive...?
Indeed i did, and it's just gone. I had already been playing our map after the beta release.. Not to mention my minecraft browser apparently still says it's Alpha, not beta. And i always type save-all. As i said, i've been running the server on and off for a few days now.
