I've gone to MC forums specifically and searched around Bing but no one could help me. I know there are a lot of MC players around E so I figured I'd try here before deleting my city.
Well I've been playing MC again to get my mind off things, and I was building this huge city in the sky over the ocean. I decided to get WorldEdit because I needed to build two giant towers and I didn't want to re-build a second one when they were the exact same. So I used it a bit. When I neared the end of my build I found a piece next to the city (Not in it thought.) That is missing. A 16x16 Chunk is just gone, appearing to resemble the void. I can see all the way past bedrock, lava and ores etc.
Well when I try to fly down there in creative it glitches as if there is something there. I try placing grass or other blocks there and while I can hear them being placed, they don't show up.
Mobs swim in the chunk as if there were water there, but I cannot. I just float down until I hit the glitch.
What I've tried: Cutting the corrupted chunk, copying another ocean chunk, and pasting the other chunk there. It still appears empty. Though after I cut it, it gets lighter as if sunlight gets to it now, but its still glitched.
So I thought, "I'll just move the whole city then." So I copy the city and start flying to another part of the ocean, but none of it loads! No other chunks in the world would load. Not sure if the whole file was corrupted somehow or if the single chunk corruption lagged me too much.
So then I copied the whole save file and got into the copy. New chunks load and nothing is laggy, but that single chunk from before is still there, or rather, not there. I dare not touch it this time and I can still play on it, but I prefer to try and move the city to a non-glitched place.
So I copied the city and saved it as an MCedit Schematic. I then proceeded to load it on a whole new map. I made sure there was enough room in the ocean, (I tried it twice on different maps, different oceans.)
Well I lag for awhile after //paste and I expected as much. So I wait for awhile before my MC runs out of memory (Both times.) and when I come back only half of it is loaded.
A third time I waited and waited, and it just wouldn't load before I ran of out memory.
Well, no matter how long I wait until my MC crashes I come back to the same chunk of the city there. I've tried copying it from different corners and its still the same city. What bugs me is that the hardest part of the city is the one that the glitchy chunk was near, and that corner of the city never loads.
