Get world seed from log files or similar after deleting world


Recommended Posts

I have tried to survive with only 1 live and got one shot by some goat. Only after I clicked on "Delete World" I realized that I could save the world seed as it was pretty nice. grasslands with bees like in 100 blocks of spawn and a nice ruin.

Can I still recover the world seed somehow?

I doubt it. I think delete means delete in this case. And that the world seed isn't saved anywhere else.

On the upside, nice worlds are actually pretty common, I think. Just start a new world - I don't think it is a big deal.

If you don't like where you spawn, switch to Creative (/gamemode creative), fly around a bit and then switch back (/gamemode Survival).


If you wanted to poke around, look at the Logs under \AppData\Roaming\VintagestoryData\Logs. 
(I didn't see anything obvious, but I spent all of a minute looking only.)

Saves is at the same level - but is probably missing your world.

just an fyi not sure if it has changed but the spawn on a seed is not always the same.  i have tried a few good seeds in the past only to not be close to where i was the first time through. But that may be because i messed up?

I think the latest Unstable Patch has got you covered:

"Tweak: Initial world spawn location is now seed deterministic"
