My friend has a server that him, a couple other friends, and I have made structures on for a while now. Recently, I changed the mod ID, and since we haven't worked on the server for a while, it hasn't been updated. Now, all of the blocks and everything is gone. Is there a way to not have this happen with the mod ID changing?

Changing modid is very destructive change and should be only done in critical cases, so the answer would be no, you need to make a new world.
