I updated from the Mindcrack Pack 8.1 to 8.2 and noticed they changed from REI map to Voxelmap and now all of my waypoints are missing. I had some very important locations saved in those coordinates. Does anybody know how to retrieve them?

Well, the old waypoints are probably not compatible with VoxelMap, so you wouldn't be able to retrieve them with that alone. I would try reinstalling Rei's Minimap to get back the old waypoints (which may have been deleted in the update. not sure). Then change the key binds so that the buttons don't conflict, and go to those spots and replace your Rei waypoints with Voxel ones.

 

I'm not sure if there's some easier way to do this, but that's a solution I could think of.

Rei's Minimap stores your waypoint data within your minecraft folder, wherever you've chosen to install FTB. If you look in "[install directory]/minecraft/mods/rei_minimap", you should find some .points files for any worlds you've created waypoints in, unless the update deleted this folder. These are plain-text files, so just open them with your text editor of choice, and each of your waypoints, along with their coordinates in the world, will be listed. Then you can either find these coordinates by navigating with the F3 menu open and add them as new waypoints, or you could try to figure out where VoxelMap stores its waypoints and try to insert them manually (be careful, you might break something that way). I hope this helps.

 

edit:

VoxelMap waypoints are stored in your default vanilla Minecraft folder for some reason (on Windows: %appdata%/.minecraft/mods/VoxelMods/voxelMap), again as plain-text .points files. They have a format like

 

name:Foo,x:116,z:422,y:70,enabled:true,red:0.0,green:0.6313726,blue:0.80784315,suffix:,world:,dimensions:-1#0#

 

Rei's waypoint format is like

 

Baz:1519:71:159:true:12E8F7

 

To convert this Rei's waypoint to a Voxel waypoint, you'd get something like this:

 

name:Baz,x:1519,z:159,y:71,enabled:true,red:0.0,green:0.0,blue:0.0,suffix:,world:,dimensions:-1#0#

 

I've ignored color for now, meaning any waypoints you convert would be black, but presumably that's not a big deal and you can change that easier in-game. These were all overworld waypoints, but with some messing around you can probably figure out how nether/end/other age waypoints are formatted. Of course, I'd recommend backing up your entire save before editing any files, just to be safe.

Yeah.. Waypoints are gone. Unless servers store them differently. Everytime I upgrade my server, I delete the Mods folder and dump the new files in. Haven't lost the waypoints till this one.
 

Edit: FOUND EM!! YAY!! Thank you!
