I have been playing Minecraft on one computer and I need to move it to another one without starting over.   Where are the files with all my game information stored? How do I move them?  If I log onto minecraft.net under my username on a different computer, it comes up with five empty worlds, not the one I have been building.

so, are the files for my world stored locally on the computer on which I have been playing (a MacBook)? if not, where are they stored?  what is the simplest way to allow my current world to be accessed from and played on another computer?

the videos about this weren't a lot of help, unfortunately.

thank you.

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves
On windows, probably somewhere similar for your mac book.

Back up the files on a disk, then re-load the disk onto your new computer? You can find your save files in the roaming file under .minecraft then saves.

Wait, can't you just use your flash drive and put it on it then put it on another flash drive.

You should be able to just save your games as .minecraft files, then transfer them via email or flash drive.

Well one way is that once you have located your save you compress/zip the save and upload it to a site, mediafire, mega upload or whatever.

Once done take the link of the download and go to it on the other computer, download it and place it in the saves folder

Hope i helped :Glass:
