Me and a group of friends spent months building a city on our minecraft server. After we started having server errors we decided that it would be best to completely reinstall minecraft. So we backed up the world folder to our computer and did a complete server reinstall for minecraft.
After moving the world folder back and loading it on our server, we are now spawned in the middle of nowhere and have not been able to find the city we've spent months building. It's an infinite world and we've spent about 2 weeks looking for the city we've built but have not been able to find it.
Are we screwed? or is there another way to locate a city that we have built? I don't see why simply moving our world folder back into the MC directory and pointing to it in the server.properties file wouldn't work. Our old server was running Mc 1.8.3 with spigot. And this one runs 1.8.8 with spigot.
