    Hey Everyone,

    Many of you have asked me if I have any of the ShadowBlox map backups still. I searched through my computer and managed to find a backup of the Flatlands, Plotworld and Freebuild worlds which seem to be from the 12th of July 2012. I haven't recently tested these backups but I'm sure you guys are all smart and will be able to get them to work. If you need help please don't hesitate to ask.

    One thing I do ask is please do not steal other people's builds/ creations or whatever and claim them as your own. I uploaded these backups so that you can get your own stuff back rather than take other people's stuff.

    Here are the download links:

    Flatlands: https://mega.nz/#!oE8FVYQb!ccI6o7tqUwAgYEwiuLYw1KhtGwv2CAnUIPFzpMh6nvw
    Plotworld: https://mega.nz/#!MBth3SBY!WNKNxGOFi7S7ijKa9cFSwJkpgYBME-K0VI9EIu1ZL6s
    Freebuild: https://mega.nz/#!AY9ByKyB!8wfQTn0BvT3r3Ucl3rZgzqBjjZ2QiVgN8MKK4amKs7Y
    Warps and PlotMe Data: https://mega.nz/#!IVc0CYoZ!Ytkbj55MnpQAwL4zI9CbSPhLjn2D-fUCGK7sU7WeGLY

    If I find any other useful backups in the future I will more than likely upload them :)

    I hope you guys enjoy!

    Time to find my builds!

    If you happen to have the PlotMe and Essentials backups, for warps and plot data, that would be great. I'd love to find my plot!

    Below is A link to what I found. There's some warps, the PlotMe Config file (If you need it) and the PlotMe datbase. I'll also go back and edit the post so that anyone else can find the download for this if they need it.

    This is awesome, time to start exploring!

    EDIT: For anyone curious, the game version at the time these saves were taken and whatnot is 1.2.5 1.3.1. In order to really get anything out of the PlotMe data is making a 1.2.5 server and setting up plugins on it. So I just found out the game will crash if you attempt to open any of the maps on version 1.2.5, and I can't stop the leaves from decaying when launching on 1.13. UGH. The game launches on version 1.3.1 with no issues. I'm not gonna do that, not right now anyways, but I opened the .db with Notepad++ and saw some old names I remembered so that was nice.

    Thanks for sharing that information! I hope you find your builds. It would be awesome if you shared screenshots too

    I looked at every single plot on the plot map, and didn't find anything of mine, then realized I started playing around the end of 2012/the very beginning of 2013 (My video on the RedColorBombs YouTube channel was uploaded February 2013), so the backups are from before I started playing :(. If you happen to come across some backups from around February of 2013, that'd be really cool to look at! I did take some screenshots of some builds other people made (tried to get their little name signs in the screenshot if I could) and I may post those here somewhere sometime.

    Plenty of recognised names there...most to never be seen again. A few on there are gone but not forgotten.

    Yeah, I wish we had a list of phone numbers or emails or something so we could contact the whole community

    Are there no backups of XenForo?

    I managed to find one player on Facebook, but I'm not sure if they'd appreciate being messaged, as it has been a long time. On the other hand, they may love it. You could always look through old posts on the ShadowBlox page, and see if anyone left their usernames.

    Unfortunately I don't think so.

    You could shoot them a message with a link to the forum if you want? Worst they could do is not reply

    I think it would be somewhat better if you do this from the official ShadowBlox page, as they may recognise that.
