We’ve all played the old ‘minecraft survival map in a bedrock box’ map before. They’re fun, but once you’ve played one, you’ve played them all. Right? Right? Wrong. Deadline Survival adds a new twist to the old formula by adding a timer to the map. You’ve still got to work out a way to survive with limited resources and even more limited room, but now the time that it takes too grow some wheat or even get a tree to turn from sapling to wood source might be too dashed long. This map comes in two variations, a ‘normal’ mode and a ‘hard’ mode. The difference between them is whether or not you’ll be forced to delete your world if you should happen to die.
This is a survival map with a goal. You have seven days to find nine emeralds. These emeralds are hidden in the box you call a world. As you play, an ominous glowing counter marks the days until something terrible happens. Think Majora’s Mask. No, don’t think that, you don’t have time to think that and there’s no Song of Time to save you now!
As always, the rules are simple. Get emeralds and survive, or die trying. And odds are you will die because it’s not just the terrain that’s hostile. As you delve deep into the map to try and retrieve the nine emeralds you’ll encounter all manner of terrible creatures, snarling and clanking about the place with little regard for your safety.
What happens if you win? I can’t tell you much, but I can tell you that it involves cake, lies and not being on the recieving end of a redstone trap to end all redstone traps.

Animated textures really do represent the next giant step for minecraft-kind. With animated textures, the grass can blow in the wind, leaves on trees can rustle as you walk by, He Man can perform impromptu concerts for your amusement, and redstone can become something vital and alive, not just a line of bright red dust with the occasional particle effect if you’re lucky.
Every great story begins with a novice setting out into the world to become someone great. Zhemnadia is no different. This is, to all effects and purposes, a minecraft RPG map in which you play the role of someone aspiring to be a Templar knight.
This is the first minecraft adventure map I’ve ever played that started with credits. Like a move. Plot twist: player dies right at the beginning. Fortunately for us all, this is minecraft and death is not an end, just a precursor to respawning.
The upcoming redstone update, otherwise known as Minecraft 1.5, is going to be a game changer. Get a drop on the changes and new blocks associated with the redstone update with this guide!
The redstone update is about making minecraft more complex, and whilst this might not please the casual player, many of these new additions to the game can be safely ignored. Where the redstone update will really come into its own will be in multiplayer servers, survival maps and adventure maps. The many new redstone blocks and mechanics mean that the player will be entering a whole new world, where opening a chest can trigger the spawning of a hostile mob and one redstone current can be mutiplied many times over, creating a chain of events linked to one action.
