im trying to get a map from a singleplayer world into a multiplayer server, is it possible to lock a map in minecraft 1.12.2 and bring it to a server using saved toolbars? this is the item map, not the actual minecraft world.

  • I'm not sure how a map retains its data when copying it using MCedit (e.g. drop it in a chest, and copy&paste that chest onto the server). But It'll probably lose the data as well.

On Minecraft 1.12.2, it is not possible to lock a map nor is it possible to transfer it to another server. If you put a map in the saved toolbar and use it on another server it will not retain its data.

    It's possible to transfer the area that was responsible for creating the map (say, using chained structure blocks), then rebuild it at the destination, and generate the map from that.

  • i am sad... can you transfer a locked map to a 1.12.2 server using a map from another update?
