This is more of a technical problem, but its really been bothering me a lot. I have the steam version of RPG Maker MV. I'm usually using it on offline mode because I have very unsteady internet connection.
Before now its been working fine. But lately I've been finding that whenever I add a new map and save and reset the program, the map has mysteriously vanished. I have no idea what could be causing the problem. Its really annoying because I put a lot of work into these maps and having them disappear has been really bothering me.
I haven't used any plugins whatsoever with the program so that wouldn't be the issue.

I was hoping that someone else could have possibly experienced this problem themselves and found a solution. That's why I decided to post it here.

Are you using version 1.6?
If so, downgrade to version 1.5.1 or 1.5.2.

I just downgraded it. For now it seems to have fixed the problem. Hopefully it doesn't persist. Thanks for the advice!

1.6 has a lot of problems. Until those are fixed, it's best to stay with 1.5.1 or 1.5.2.

I had the same issues with 1.5.1. I noticed it had something to do with parent maps because the json files of each parent map had been corrupted. The mapXX.json files still exist in the data folder and if you check inside your mapinfos.json file you can still see the individual map data.

I temporarily stopped creating parent maps and it seems to be working.

I changed what version of the program I was using through the BETA category on steam to 5.1, so maybe that's the issue. Maybe changing the version to 4.1 will help. If not, I suppose I'll just take a break from RPG Maker until a new update comes out. Thanks for the comment.
