My "main" survival world has a very unique world as many others have but in a different way. Here is some backstory. The world's name is MFAOW(My First and Only World) which is no longer true. I created the world on the Xbox 360 in the year of 2014, it was created Christmas day on the update TU19. TU19 added the equivalent of the "Pretty Scary" Update and the "Horse" update. I played in that world nearly exclusively until December 2016 when my Xbox red ringed. At the time being a little kid I was just defeated and accepted the fate of my "glorious" world and that it was gone. Keep in mind I still had Minecraft java edition since 2012, I just preferred Xbox at the time. So I resorted to, to get my Minecraft fix on the java edition. I played on a crummy laptop until I built my pc yadda yadda. Now it is 2017 me being noticeably older decided I wanted to get MFAOW back. I saved MFAOW on my Xbox's hard drive and decided to bring that said hard drive to one of my friend's houses, they had a working Xbox. I found out using their Xbox that the world and my old "semi-responsive" account was still on the hard drive! I was not able to retrieve the account and still haven't to this day. Now being more knowledgable I started saving my money to buy an Xbox a flash drive and started downloading programs such as horizon to recover the world to my new Xbox. The saving up and troubleshooting took until the summer of 2019. That summer I was able to retrieve the world and I was able to save it on my pc. I then used a semi-sketchy McWorld converter to change MFAOW to an Xbox save to a PC save. I was successful. Now that is what I have mostly been playing on ever since. That is mostly the story of how I saved my old survival world. Thank you for reading hope you enjoyed and, if you have any questions or comments please ask or state them on this thread I would appreciate that immensely.
Alright thanks, peace!
PS: I will probably continue this thread with photos, updates, and answers.
I have come here to update this thread! I didn't mention this in the original post is that there are a couple of chunk "errors" that have generated since the creation of the world. It has been through many TUs on the Xbox and a few updates on the java edition so some of the world looks a bit sketchy.
This Island is called Aether Island for plans to use the Aether mod with it(I haven't). The island is completely plains and it was generated on the Xbox 360 way after TU19 so it generated very obscure to the rest of the world.
Yeah, it really is, not to be sad but to bet honest it was honestly one of the best feelings of my life. No, it actually isn't the same world the drained ocean monument is from my "ex-hardcore world" haha. Have a great New Year though!
