Updating Old Worlds

From Vintage Story Wiki
Other languages:

In general old Worlds tend to load up just fine with newer Versions of the game. But every once in a while an update will break some blocks which requires some manual interaction to fix. This page lists up these changes.

To apply the updates, open up a world, enter below commands which are relevant for you, then reload the world.

From 1.12.x to future versions

From version v1.12 and onwards the game ships with an integrated remapping assistant that will pop-up on demand whenever a singleplayer world is opened or a server admin joins his server, and thus manual copypasting of text should no longer be necessary.

It is recommended to jump version by version when updating game worlds created in v1.10 or earlier.

From 1.11.x to 1.12.x

/bir remap clayplanter-burnt-empty clayplanter-empty force

From 1.10.x to 1.11.x

/iir remap hide-raw-medium hide-raw force

From 1.9.x to 1.10.x

Closed barrels as distinct block no longer exist and need to be manually replaced.
