I've run into an issue that I can't find any info for in the FAQ or with a search engine. I'm updating my server world from MC 1.8 to 1.12 and whenever I load up the world in 1.12 (with the mod installed), all the Chisels & Bits blocks turn into seeds and purpur stairs. All the mod items in my inventory are still there, and I can use them just fine, but pre-existing placed sculptures are replaced with other stuff. How do I update my world without breaking everything? Do I need to step it through all the updates between 1.8 and 1.12? Is there a world updater program I can run?
Whelp, Minecraft is officially dead. The only reason I returned to Minecraft is solely because of the mod. Making Jeb a lead game dev was potentially the worst thing Notch has ever done, even worse than selling Minecraft to Microsoft. Because of Jeb's awkwardly stubborn attitude, we cannot furnish our homes which most of the game is about building. I mean really, he expects us to use stairs, slabs, and fences, to pretty much make everything.
It's such a joke. Well thanks for all your work man. Really, to me, Minecraft is nothing without your mod. I can only build so many houses, only to realize how empty and lacking the interiors are. Hopefully someone takes over and continues the project. Wonder how many modders still exist after forge stopped updating.
