How to Copy Worlds

Copy a world is simple.
You head over to MyFoundry
And head over to Game Tools
Go ahead and press Clone world

From here you get a tab with all your worlds.


Click the world you want to copy

Now you’ll get a new tab where you select the Pathing and Title

First, fill in the World Name.
This will be the Pathing of the world. Keep it simple and without spaces. Just so you can recognize it later.

World title, on the other hand, can be whatever you want, and will be what is showing up in-game

There you go ^^ Hope this was helpful <3

Old way

To first copy a world, you have to export it.
You can export the world by going to https://forge-vtt.com/setup.

Open the .zip file with a .zip tool. You can use Winrar for this if you don’t have a tool already.

You can drag this folder onto your desktop, or another space you want. Just make sure to extract it somewhere on your computer.

Open the world folder, and open world.json with a notpad program. I recommend Notepad++ but normal windows notepad works.

Edit Title and Name

To something you haven’t used before. Like “group 2”.

Title will be the world Title

While the name will be the pathing. Don’t use spaces in name.

Then re-upload with the import wizard.
That’s it.
You should now have your copy of the world. :heart:
