Merge proposal[edit]

  • Oppose It's somewhat confusing, but "Village.dat" and "villages.dat" are different files with different purposes. The former stores the information about the generation of the structures in generated villages. The latter stores the information about the doors, player reputation, and such for any village (naturally generated or constructed). Were these two pages to be merged, you'd likely wind up putting the entire contents of this page as a separate section on the other as their structures have nothing in common.

    Aha, then I didn't look closely enough before proposing the merge. Thanks a ton for calling me on it, I'll withdraw the merge proposal then and see about adding a hatnote to help avoid future confusion. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:26, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
    And thank you for pointing out the confusion and adding the hatnote. I'm too much of a programmer so the possibility of confusion didn't occur to me. Anomie x (talk) 19:59, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Wrong. 1.8 deletes the information when unloaded.[edit]

The villages_end.dat gets deleted when leaving the the village unloaded, resetting popularity. In fact, if you leave the villages you created and chunks unloaded completely, Minecraft resets the file. This happens even if no villages are near you. I had a huge village in the end that the file for it disappeared when I left it, leaving it blank as confirmed by NBTExlorer. --HinataStar (talk) 00:20, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
