    posted a message on Spheres in Vanilla?
    The spheres are only made by the new rotation command. And besides, the spheres disappear after about 5 minutes anyway. It's neat what you can do with commands now. Quit freaking out everyone, they will never actually add smooth surfaces to Minecraft. Blockscape is the one with the realistic terrain!

    posted a message on Server 1.6.2 Works, But 1.7.2 Will Not
    Quote from King_Jack_1999
    Hi GJJTC, If you are talking about the MINECAFT Client then follow these steps... When you open up the Minecraft client click on 'Edit Profile' at the bottom left on the window than look at 'Version Selection' and change your profile to '1.7.2' or 'use latest version' then click 'Save Profile' and then continue from there. If you are talking about the BUKKIT client than check the log of the server, is there any errors, is it just taking along time for preparing the spawn. Hope This Helps, King_Jack_1999.

    when you say nothing, do you mean no log or players list? but the server box is open? if so thats a bug, some anti virus software blocks the server exe from getting the logs etc, but the server is running correctly. The jar version doesn't have this issue.

    Hey guys, thanks for the reply.KIng_Jack, I'm not just talking about the client, I'm talking about the server application.exe you download from minecraft.net. I know how to switch profiles and all from the launcher.

    webrosc, I mean nothing as in nothing actually happens (or does it? :P ). I double click the server.exe and the mouse cursor loads, but it doesn't load up anything. Nothing literally happens. When I downloaded the .jar version from minecraft.net, it only created an empty log folder.
    I have the latest version of Java, I've made .bat files for both, I changed the path and even classpath variables. Nothing seems to work.

    Hello everybody, I've been trying to play on my 1.7.2 server.exe and it won't even open up. I double click the icon and it seems as if it's loading, then nothing. I do the same for 1.6.2 server.exe and it opens right up with no problem. Any suggestions?

    posted a message on World Being Overwritten PLEASE HELP
    I spoke too soon. I downloaded the latest version of MCEdit and it loaded the level.dat file with only the old chunks. The rest were missing.
    The chunks that loaded were from the latest version of the map when the original map maker built the map, the (newer) chunks that are now missing were from previous versions to the game sometime during his map-making process. I noticed that when I loaded it the first time that there were distinct chunks that were new vs the old. I'm thinking that when the game updated during his map-making, the map generator switched to anvil, like Rufus stated, and only the anvil (newer) chunks remain today. I'm not sure if it's possible to have the older (non-anvil format) chunks to be reloaded somehow without going back to an earlier version of MC.
    I just put a lot of man hours into this thing and only the newer ones remain... the old ones got replaced by ocean which you can see so it makes it almost impossible to rebuild :(

    Hey guys, sorry it's been so long to get back, but things have just now slowed down at college so that I can start working on some things that I had to stop on. So here's an update to this topic:

    I downloaded MCEdit like you guys said after I got off that night. And today, I go to load both the level.dat and level (2).dat files in MCEdit. In the level.dat file, it loaded but absolutely nothing was there except for the players and the spawn point. None of the old chunks were there.... And MCEdit wouldn't even load the newer level 2.dat file. I think I may be out of luck :(
    Any opinions are welcome!

    If the map is a year old then i would guess it's something to do with the map format change to anvil. I couldn't say for sure without personally playing around with the map though. I'm guessing there's not a lot that can be done with it ingame as the problem will just keep repeating itself.

    As gravewalker suggested, you might be able to fix it outside of minecraft with mcedit. Another possibility if all else fails is to make a new map and use mcedit to transfer the assets over to a new one.

    Sorry I can't be more help; it's certainly a weird problem.

    Thanks for the reply and help. I haven't been able to use MCEdit for a while now since it was down because the owner quit. I'm going to install it again now that it's been updated. But I might need more help of figuring out how to transfer the old map data to a new map. Sounds a little tricky to me!

    Ok, more info. I uploaded another picture of the new chunks vs. the old ones. Now I have played this map before on later versions of minecraft after I played the adventure map; I came back time and time again as minecraft kept updating and everything was still in place, now it's almost all gone. Some of the other structures are still there like, half of the lighthouse I built....
    When I played on here last time, it did generate new chunks, but only outside of the map you saw on my first post. (You can barely make out a line in the middle of the map). The adventure map is Captain Blackbeard's Adventure, it had notes and diaries. There was a pyramid in the woods, glowstone towers at the spawn, and a house on a beach towards the end of the adventure.
    If I need to make anything else clearer, let me know.

    Hello friends, it has been a while since I've posted on here but I need your help. Almost a year ago, I was working on an adventure map on my server, that my friends and I played on, to revamp it. The backup files in my .minecraft folder says that it was last modified on May 24, 2012. A couple days ago I go back on my server to play on the map again and it started to generate new chunks everywhere. I was holding a map in my hands and I could see the new chunks being generated over the existing terrain. I was very upset since I put many hours into this map. Thankfully I still have that backup folder for that map. The map folder is called 'Adventure map'. I never changed the name of the map folder or any of its contents. I go back to my backup folder and copy and paste the map back into my server file folder where my other maps were. I go back into my server and I'm still having the same problem. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Wow. Now it is impossible to swim in water. Don't try it if you're in a cave next to a lava pool. I almost learned that the hard way. That's a new bug btw with this new pre-release. And torches don't place properly from certain positions. But keep up the good work Mojang. You've got a lot of bugs, but keep your head in the game, and you all will do fine.

    Do villages spawn in the waterworld if the 'Generate structures' is on? I've looked and haven't found any, but yet, I can't see more than 15 blocks ahead me either. It would be awesome to live in an underwater village!

    I'm still experiencing some lag spikes when walking around the world. And in some instances, when I right click once to place a block, it places two. That is another lag spike that I have experienced on this snapshot. This did not happen before Minecraft 1.0. I am playing on max FPS, fast graphics, and open advanced GL is on. And I should also point out that chickens look in the wrong direction when you lead them with wheat. And please, for the love of God... Undo the nerf on the smelting. PLEASE.

    Thanks so much, I will try this.


    I'm afraid that won't work. I read in another thread that the spawn point is random when you die in Creative.

    You can't die in creative mode. Lol. Only survival or adventure mode you can die.
