How can i convert Block/Item IDs in a world?

Recommended Posts

I have a little modpack for myself and my friends. We're finally rebuilding it from 1.4.7 to 1.12.2. 

We don't want to lose all the buildings and skyscrapers and factories we made. I figured a majority of it could be ran through some sort of block ID converter, and the rest of it patched up manually.

When going from 1.2.5 to 1.4.7, i used MIDAS Gold, but that seems to not work properly, or with data values. I also tried MC Edit 2 (which is a pain because each block has to manually be added to the list which I'm willing to do) but it seems to crash when trying to convert blocks that are added to the game. 

Does anyone have any ideas? We put a heck of allot into this server and we really want to at least carry over the buildings. I appreciate any suggestions.

Example of a couple buildings made in survival (my friends and I had nothing to do back in HS lol)

      I have seen a couple of these floating around, but none of them seem to fit my use case, so I made one.

      As of now it will structure mods into proper zip files and repo folders. It will also allow you to insert mods and versions into the database, and update builds with the newly inserted mods.
      It will not upload to your server automatically, but it gives you a nice folder that you can upload the contents of, and it'll "just work". It calculates MD5s and updates them in the database for a nice and easy transition. As of now, it will guess the mod name and version based on the jar name. It discriminates names and version by a hyphen. 
      Good Example:
      appliedenergistics2--rv6-stable-6.jar  => name: appliedenergistics2, version: rv6-stable-6
      Bad example:
      advanced-machines-61-0-1-jar => name: advanced version: machines-61-0-1-jar
      I plan on adding a override for this later on, and the program will run fine, but if you want proper names, name your jars accordingly!
      The program will ask you if you want to set pretty names. If you say yes, it will ask for a pretty name for each mod to insert. Otherwise, it will stick to the naming scheme like above.
      This program requires solder to run on MySQL, so please make sure you have a remote account ready for the database solder runs on. If you want to update builds with this program, you will need to know the build IDs. 
      This is NOT a gui, you need to run it via a console.
      Screenshots of use:


       
       
      Feel free to ask questions or give feedback. And no, the program doesn't save your database info. Here's the source: https://github.com/MythTheWolf/SolderAutomate/blob/master/src/com/company/Main.java

      Hi all, 
      I have some old worlds from technic. I had a world with quite a few builds in it. A whole heap of spaceships. This world had many blocks from the micro blocks mudpack I believe its called which includes covers, panels, cover strips etc. We tried to convert the old world into Tekkit classic only to find they ave changed the block IDs. So does anyone know how I could get the world into a playable version. The blocks still exist as we put the world into mcedit and saw the blocks where still there. 
      Thanks

      I have made a modpack and everything works fine until I place any of Project:Red's microblocks, then the game closes, and opens the launcher.
      The logs are here. Some thing about an illegal block (microblock).
