For anyone who may have crashed or accidentally closed their game before managing to save their map. This is how I went about rescuing my map from such a situation.
Guide to Recover Map
What This Guide Is For
My game crashed while testing my map and I didn’t even save after working on it for hours. I kept the window open for awhile hoping it would come back and started looking for the save data. After failing to locate it I open the game hoping I had saved it. In the map maker I did not have any saved maps, but after clicking on the ‘manage maps’ button I found where the maps are saved. Going there I was still dismayed to see nothing in the maps folder. However I noticed a temp save file in the root directory of the game. I plopped that into the map folder, went back to Lumencarft to refresh the map manager folder & was right back into my map!
It being a temp file, I would guess that if you tried making a fresh map before recovering the map you lost then you might be out of luck. However, the file was up to date from the moment I jumped in to test it (my first wave crashed the game).
TL:DR – Go Here, Copy This, Make Backups
- Go here:
- Should be a temp.lcmap in the folder
- Copy that file to the Maps folder; Load map and make a copy (or several).
