Is it possible to move from one Minecraft map to another while keeping your items from inventory and chests?

Asking more precisely - could this be done with commands? Like export items and their amounts to a file and then import everything according that file using a command?

    You could go to a new map, open the map up to lan, enable cheats and go to game mode 1 and just give yourself the stuff. However alternatively I remember being able to migrate only your character to a new map by changing the sever map (only if you hosted the server, and lot on lan), of course this was also back in I believe 1.1 so it might be changed, and it would only be the stuff your character has on them.

  • Not sure if that does the trick, but.. oldMap/playerdata/ -> newMap/playerdata/ might be worth a try.

This cannot be done with commands, however you could move the playerdata between the two maps, which will also move your inventory.

Note: This may also move your position in the world.
