FTB Quests Importer

149 Downloads Last Updated: Nov 6, 2019 Game Version: 1.12.2

(Note: This mod is in no way, shape or form associated with Feed The Beast, it's just an addon to FTB Quests!)




This mod does exactly what it says in the title (and description) -- Just use one simple command to convert Better Questing quest, loot and even player data(NEW!) into the FTB Quests format, making it a lot easier for pack developers and server operators alike to migrate from one mod to the other.


WARNING: Using this will delete any existing FTB Quests chapters and/or reward tables you have and overwrite them with the imported quests. You have been warned!


Command Syntax:


/ftbq_import <quests|progress> [flags]


Current flags for Quest Importing:

-i or --fix-icons: Sets the item stack size of all quest and chapter icons to 1. This exists purely for aesthetic reasons, as BQ doesn't actually show the item amount on icons, while FTB Quests does, which can look odd in some cases

-l or --truncate-loot: The importer currently creates one reward table per loot group you have in Better Questing and then creates another reward table which randomly drops loot chests from these aforementioned groups. If you specify this flag, it will instead use a random reward to directly give you one of these loot chests instead of you having to open an extra crate to get your reward

-c or --auto-cmd: This flag makes it so that the importer sets command rewards to be auto-claimed, as well as hiding them from the user automatically.


Current flags for Progress Importing:

-- none --


For pack developers:


Here is how you can help server operators migrate player data between quest mods if you plan on switching from Better Questing to FTB Quests using this mod:


  1. 1. Open a world and run /ftbq_import quests with whatever flags you desire.
  2. 2. The script will automatically generate an imported_quests.json file in the config folder.
  3. 3. Include this json file with your next pack update(s) and instruct your players to run /ftbq_import progress to migrate their data.
  4. 4. If everything goes smoothly, congrats! Your players should have had a close to seamless migrating experience.


For server owners / players:


If you are playing a modpack or hosting a server with a modpack that's trying to migrate from Better Questing, make sure to run /ftbq_import progress to move your saved quest data over to FTB Quests. Please make sure not to import quests and loot tables yourself, as this will most likely break progress between different pack updates!


That's all. Enjoy!
