i dont know honestly if this is the correct Thread, but i really need help, when i join my creative world i spawn in the middle of nowhere, and i dont find where is all my buildings, i even download the journey map mod to try to find where i was and no luck, i check in the saves, and it seems fine since it has 108mb compared to others worlds that i have, it has 4 times more size, so it should be fine, but how i can find my spot again? is tons of time and nice looking buildings, and why that happens?, somebody pls help! in case needs the world files i dont have any problem to send it
Where did you happen to start building in that superflat world to begin with? If those buildings are near the world spawn of that world try killing your character (in a backup most likely) and seeing if you appear near them. Otherwise it's best to keep an eye on your coordinates with screenshots or minimap mods waypoints or even a map that shows the world. Otherwise once you get lost it's very difficult to find it again if you aren't careful which is why coordinates are important. If not then I'll try finding them if I can but it might be difficult still. Just let me know which directions you have gone and I can try to find them for you.
I'd also recommend some of the suggestions towards getting lost here:
i start building right where i spawn but, i have already try that i kill myself but still spawning nowhere, i still dont know why i spawn nowhere the size of the world still being 108mb, if i find it i will place a bed and build with bedrock :p, how can i send you the file? as a mega file?
now the world is 223 mb… maybe because i was searching so hard, honestly i feel like i lost it… hopefully i have a video where i show all my buildings but i dont want to lose it
"Sometimes"? You mean you play it in 1.12.2 and then go back to 1.8? That's what I'm talking about, you should never go back!
If you didn't build anything in the newer versions it might work but I wouldn't risk it, you should use a backup for that.
Though, if "the new one" means 1.14 then I'm pretty sure that the way blocks are stored was changed so I really don't understand how you could have gone from 1.14 to 1.8 with no problems, unless maybe you were exploring far from home before you switched and then switched back before going back near your builds, that way the only chunks that would have been deleted would be the far away ones that you wouldn't miss.
I hope your builds are alright!
Just in case I'm misunderstanding you, I talking about playing the same world.
Having different world in different versions of Minecraft is ok.
Though it's safest to have separate profiles using different directories in order to avoid running a world in the wrong version.
once i go to the newest versión and nothing happens, but everytime that i change the versión and goes to my world a message pops out saying to make a backup and i always do it, i kinda understand…. and it could be, but there are 2 things that i dont have an answer (if thats the case) where i am now is not the same place where i spawn the first time, and why it keeps the size of the world? i mean if the blocks was deleted it shouldnt have a lower size?, i have download novigrad and has 163mb, but mine use to have 108mb (now 223mb)
