At times Minecraft servers can have issues saving chunks causing corruption or have users that overload chunks with too many entities. Fenixin's Minecraft Region Fixer is the go-to tool to help you with these issues and more.
Getting the Tool
Using git you can clone Fenixin's repository on GitHub using either of these commands
- git clone email@example.com:Fenixin/Minecraft-Region-Fixer
- git clone https://github.com/Fenixin/Minecraft-Region-Fixer.git
If you are not going to use python, you can skip this step and grab the executable below.
Running the Tool
There are two ways of running the tool, the preferred way being the included raw python script but there is also the option of an executable windows file.
Using python (Python 2.7.x, 3.x isn't currently supported), all you need to do is go to your cloned or extracted location of the tool and run commands along the line of
- python region-fixer.py <your args (see below)>
- region-fixer.exe <your args (see below)>
Using the Tool
As a preface, you can get the tool to scan either a specified world (user data, chunks, etc) or just a specified region file, for example
- python region-fixer.py /route/to/minecraft/world
- python region-fixer.py /route/to/minecraft/world/region/r.0.0.mca
- --dc ( --delete-corrupted ): This will automatically delete any corrupted chunk regions it finds
- --backups /route/to/a/backup/world -- replace-corrupted /route/to/corrupted/world: These must be used together and can prevent chunk loss by replacing chunks with a backup you specify
- --delete-entities (preface with --entity-limit <int> to change default of 300): This will clear out all entities in a chunk if it has more than the specified limit
- --interactive: This allows you to choose what to do without using other flags, using a command line interface
- --verbose ( -v ): This will show you more information relating to the problems within specific regions
- python region-fixer.py -v --dc /my/minecraft/world
- python region-fixer.py --backups /my/minecraft/backup/world --replace-corrupted /my/real/minecraft/world
- python region-fixer.py --entity-limit 50 --delete-entities /my/minecraft/world
- python region-fixer.py --interactive /my/minecraft/world
Setting up the region fixer for Multicraft
If you have access to the /home/minecraft/multicraft/jar directory of your Multicraft installation, you may want to set up the region fixer to fire when using the control panels built in Chunkster button.
Following the steps provided below will achieve that goal.
- Download the latest archived version of region-fixed from the link provided above.
- Upload the Minecraft-Region-Fixer-master folder in the .zip to your multicraft/jar directory.
- Rename Minecraft-Region-Fixer-master to region-fixer
- Find the chunkster.jar.conf file in the /jar directory, open it and replace the contents with the following http://pastebin.com/EnRaFdqJ
- Make any changes you want to the flags, by default this will detect and remove corrupted chunks.
- Save the file and now the Chunkster button should run the region fixer for main world of that Multicraft server.
For any reason you need the default Chunkster config, it can be found here.
