World-specific maximum number of saves


As it is now the maximum number of saves is a global limit. Say you have a limit of 5 saves then you can only have one save of each world, or 5 saves of one world. What I instead would suggest is if you set the limit to 5 saves you can have 5 saves of world 1, 5 saves of world 2, etc., totalling a maximum of 25 saves (5 for each world maximum).

I can't fix it, since people may have mods like More Worlds, and I can't do that - too much features is not good.

As it is now though the recover form is hardcoded to Worlds 1 through 5 so people with More Worlds already can't recover to their additional worlds. I was the one who originally requested that feature back on the Minecraft forums so thank you for implementing it this far. However I just don't think this way is what people expect from it because as it is now it is only of use when you only have one world. Because as soon as you 5 backups for one world all the backups for the other worlds are deleted... I think you will always want to keep at least one backup per world.

I'll allow free-writing in the combo box in the Restore form.
I'll have to think whether and how I'll implement the feature you ask.

Just some ideas:

How about a checkbox in the options to allow recovery for world 6-10? That might be the cleanest solution since you can't reliably check whether or not the user is using the More Worlds mod (or can you? I assume you'd have to check the Minecraft jar files for the specific changes). As for the maximum backups feature: when you perform a backup for world X you check the backup directory for the number of WorldX-... files and if >=5 then you delete the oldest backup.

As Notch is working on a new save format, I guess that the World_ format will be trashed, so ATM I don't want to do anything special related to it.
