Hey I think this is the right spot to pop this thread.
So me and my friend have been building a world for a long time now and have come a long ways, we've stopped playing for awhile and with all the new updates we would like to be able to enjoy them on your current world. Is there anyway to regenerate or reload a map while keeping all of our buildings? We've explored the entire map from corner to corner on the largest PS4 map setting. Is there anything we can do to regenerate the map where our village is not in order to keep all of our buildings?
Technically this section is for Java Edition (I just noticed how Java and Pocket Edition have mapping and modding but the Bedrock versions don't have a mapping section only multiplayer or discussion which is strange).
Either way though I'm still happy to answer it for you anyways regardless of that.
Is there a copy world option at all? I can't say much more since I don't have the PS4 version and the Xbox One version I have uses Bedrock I think so you'd have to screenshot what the menus look like so I can assist unfortunately.
But I think there should be a way to edit a world and either copy it or recreate maybe... In Bedrock or Java Edition you just have the ability to copy the world or export easily in game (more so Bedrock) or recreate from scratch and just copying the file outside the game (Java Edition). I'm not sure how the PS4 or how other legacy console versions of the game work really though, at least not anymore since it's been 2 years since I've used the Console Versions.
Don't worry, I had to think about it myself if Bedrock had this option due to being a Java user but I've only briefly played with Bedrock and due to PS4 not supporting Bedrock (to my knowledge) it's been a while since I've used Console versions.
That should be all I need, I tried looking for videos of the old console version menus but couldn't tell since they didn't likely show anything in the videos. I'll put this Bedrock screenshot anyways to show what options I know are possible with that version.
And the Java recreate just encase even though it shouldn't really apply.
