Temple Of The Three Gods Minecraft Adventure Map Download

What makes an amazing minecraft adventure map? Landscapes that take one’s breath away. Traps and tricks to boggle the mind. A story that entices rather than plods. The Temple Of The Three Gods is a minecraft adventure map that not only meets all these criteria, but blows them out of the water.

This map has character. Far from simply channeling you through a story it tempts you towards it, which is quite a different thing. The map also has no qualms about putting you through your paces, sinking your time into consuming tasks (like the almost never-ending stairs that begin the game.)

The creators also clearly understand something about pacing. There are slow moments, almost tedious moments, but they lead to high excitement and wonder. In addition to the main quests are side quests. All the quests require a certain amount of puzzling and ingenuity and success is not always guaranteed.

The rewards for all this work are great however, with a great temple to explore that almost defies understanding with its sheer size and scope. It took a great deal of restraint not to post spoiler-ish pictures of this place, but I will urge you to discover it for yourself.

Oh and there’s a maze. A maze that may very well drive you mad, especially if you happen to be ever so slightly claustrophobic. All of this and the map is good for 1 – 4 players, fun for all the family – or at least four of them.

The Cubes Minecraft Survival Map Download

Biomes. In Cubes. Cubic biomes. That’s a pretty apt summary of this minecraft survival map. Though there are many like it, there aren’t many that are quite as unexpectedly dangerous. Spawners, spawners everywhere!

There’s an awful lot of bridge building ahead for the avid minecraft player, also an awful lot of cultivation and an awful lot of spawner destroying. So many spawners. Although the premise of the map is simple, there’s actually rather a lot of work involved in completing the challenges. Although you’re really supposed to play the map on easy mode or higher, it’s still quite a fun map to play on peaceful.

What’s most enjoyable about The Cubes is the fact that each little cube must be cultivated and tamed. Stone must be mined, wood must be harvested and trees replanted. Then one is off to another cube to harvest some handy cacti and dig some sand for more glass.

For a good solid minecraft survival experience with some sky island-esqe twists, why not download The Cubes, minecraft survival map!

2×2 Square Survival Minecraft Survival Island

Are you ready for a new, ultra challenging minecraft survival map? I hope so because 2×2 Square Survival is a Minecraft survival island with a twist – the twist being the almost complete lack of soil in which to grow crops, spawn animals and you know, survive.

In addition to the basic survival challenges there are also hidden areas to investigate and plenty of challenges to complete, over fifty unique challenges in fact! It is compatible with various minecraft snapshots and with the base game, so you can get as deep into minecraft challenge mode as you like, or simply build a little boat and spend your days floating around your tiny island, escaping predators through the art of paddling or sail or magnets or whatever force is supposed to be propelling a minecraft boat.

How To Ride A Minecraft Pig (With Carrot And Stick)

Minecraft pigs have been rideable with saddles since the very early stages of the game. Even back in beta one could craft a leather saddle, leap on a pig and find oneself being wandered aimlessly about the place. But in the new minecraft one can actually steer minecraft pigs as you ride them using a carrot on a stick.

How To Craft A Pig Saddle

To ride a pig you’re going to need to saddle a pig. Unfortunately, pig saddles aren’t craftable and they’re not going to become craftable either. You can get yourself a pig saddle by trading with a villager, finding one in a dungeon or using the /gamemode command to switch to creative, crib yourself a saddle and switch back before you lose your sense of immersion.

How To Craft A Carrot And Stick For Minecraft Pig Riding

Take one fishing rod and add a carrot. Simple as that!

Be aware of the fact that carrots on sticks don’t last forever, so you’ll have to craft plenty of carrots on sticks if you want to ride your trusty pig steed all o’er the minecraft plains.

(Please note that unless you are using a recent snapshot you won’t be able to steer pigs with carrots on sticks until the next update, when this article will leap into glorious relevance!)

How To Use Minecraft Command Blocks

This humble minecraft command block awaits your commands.

The command block is a minecraft block designed to be used in Adventure Mode. With a command block a map creator will be able to ‘instruct’ a map/block to dispense specific items and EXP points when the block is activated via a redstone current. This means that when a player completes an objective in adventure mode, they can be rewarded. The command block can also be used to change how the game behaves at different stages of the map. Mob spawning, fire spread, block and mob drops can all be controlled via the command block. The command block can also be used in multiplayer server maps (SMP).
