Wealth of the World Minecraft Adventure / Survival / CTM Map

Giant. Diamond. Creepers. Three worlds that should get your pulse racing, your stomach churning and your palms sweating. Wealth of the World is the sort of minecraft map download that legends are made of, it gives you the leeway to be who you really are whilst constantly tickling your funny bone and setting challenges that you can’t wait to rise to.

Most CTM maps involve grubbing about the place for some colored wool, but Wealth of the World takes a different approach. Instead of wool, you must offer animal eggs to appease giant diamond creepers who wish to cook them. It makes about as much sense as anything else does in minecraft, so I’m all for it.

I also like the way the map is designed to be played on peaceful. There’s nothing more irritating than trying to complete goals whilst being sniped by a jumpy skeleton.

The survival part comes in where you have to cut down trees to create tools and all that sort of thing. This is a map that actually lets you play minecraft whilst you play the map, unlike other similar maps that forbid the breaking of blocks. I bite my thumb at them.

Wealth of the World comes with the PigCraft texture pack by the same creator. I tried playing with it but didn’t find that it really added a whole lot to the experience. No matter how many people try to ‘improve’ the mineral textures, the default texture pack really does seem to have them beat at the outset. Because they don’t really matter, precious minerals are scattered all over the map, there are diamonds for everyone!

This is definitely a special map, one that survival and adventure players will both enjoy. The CTM mechanic fits in neatly and isn’t there only to compensate for the otherwise meaningless nature of the map. (That is to say, this map has some kind of inherent merit.)

Ah, that’s enough words. Go download it and play it! Collect those eggs and sacrifice them to the creeper gods!

Secret of the Nether Minecraft Adventure

There aren’t many minecraft adventure maps that begin by politely requesting that you immolate yourself, but this is one of them. Secret of the Nether should probably be retitled ‘How The Heck Are You Supposed To Get To The Nether’ though, as very little of the map is actually set there.

There’s a little bit of prison breaking, a fair bit of puzzle solving and more than usual wondering whether you’ve somehow wandered off the path only to discover that you’ve done no such thing. Some of the notes are mislabeled, which adds to the fun, but it’s nothing you can’t work out with a little bit of applied logic.

What I do like about this adventure map is the fact that it is ambitious. Not content to have a main quest line, it also has sidequests. Some of them are interesting diversions from the main story, others are half finished and pointless. It’s up to you to discover which is which!

Those with an explorer’s spirit will be rewarded with upgrades and ghast tears. Remember that wool blocks can and should be broken.

The irritating part of the map is that it is actually a WIP. If it were finished (and if the final stages of the story weren’t completely rage inducing), it might be one to download. As it is, it’s an interesting little map if you feel like wandering around collecting ghast tears. I got 38. How many can you find?

Pastry Pirates Minecraft Adventure Map

In a pastry paradise, a garden grows so tasty and wonderful that all those who travel there cannot help but gorge their eyes on the terrain. A truly magnificent, totally trippy minecraft adventure map, Pastry Pirates Chapter One, The Clockwork Garden is one that absolutely begs to be played by anyone with a love of well developed adventure and a twist of whimsy in their hearts and minds. No effort has been spared in the development of this map, which comes with its own original soundtrack. Excited yet? You should be.

Most minecraft adventure maps begin with a single premise: you are a traveller / adventurer / trader who has mysteriously woken up / crashed / landed on an island / box / volcano far from civilization. If you find that trite, then you’re going to be super stoked with the premise of the Pastry Pirates map, which is as follows:

Pastry Pirates is your first glimpse into the whimsical world of Jeffy, a young pixie who enjoys the finer things in life — delicious baked treats, so sweet, so sweet! Unlike most Minecraft adventure maps, you’ll enjoy Pastry Pirates as a completely open-ended fantasy world! You’re able to explore the beautifully designed environment at your leisure and interact with the kooky inhabitants of Fairy’s Aire — mice, birds, fairies, pandas, and more!

The word ‘sandbox’ might lead you to believe that there will be nothing to do besides marvel at the charming and whimsical builds that the creators have poured their delicate little hearts and souls into, but no, there’s more. There are puzzles to solve, treasures to find and the general ambiance of Jeffy-ness to embrace! Maps have been put to excellent use, instead of being simple blocky directions they act as messages, putting text into the game without the need for mods or reading external .txt files.

The Pastry Pirates: Clockwork Garden minecraft map download comes with its own texture pack, images, lore, music and yes, a finely crafted story line that will keep you wandering from dawn ’til dusk, whereupon you will eagerly go to bed in the simple hope of waking to explore another day. There are three versions of the map to download, a complete pack which includes the aforementioned lore and music and such, a simple survival edition with just the map and texures and a creative mode, so you can fly through the place pouring lava on everything.

The Tower of Xotl Minecraft Adventure Map

This futuristic / modern (pick your poison when it comes to terminology, all I can tell you is that fridges exist in this map) adventure map is one of the best I’ve played in terms of world immersion, attention to detail and overall design. If you’re looking to lose yourself in a gripping adventure that will have your eyes widening in surprise at every turn, The Tower of Xotl is a minecraft adventure map you’ll want to download.

It even comes with its own texture pack, which is almost always an indicator of quality in an adventure map. A maker who has taken the time to make the map look right is a maker that cares. The texture pack is an integral part of the map, without the texture pack you have a mismash of textures that make no sense. If you want a somewhat abstract experience, you could always play on the default map I suppose.

Though the infantile use of ‘da rules’ on the welcome sign might make you want to delete the map the moment you open it, don’t. This map has been put together with extreme care and tells a story with additional text and images that come in the accompanying files. The writing is actually pretty good too (something you wouldn’t guess from the mode of welcome.)

The Lost Paradise, Minecraft Adventure / Survival / Puzzle / Parkour Map

The Lost Paradise is a minecraft map download with a little bit of everything. It begins with a maze and a parkour challenge, so pure survivalists are going to get pretty frustrated right off the bat. Or they’re going to smash out a few lantern blocks and make their own stairs. Because people who can’t jump but like to play survival maps are going to get a lot more out of this map than people who can jump but don’t like survival maps.

The Lost Paradise (warning, sort of a spoiler) is a magical land hidden away inside a dome of ice. It is largely comprised of a large flat tree that looks like something out of The Lion King and a bunch of colored sheepies. There’s quite a lot of land to explore under the ice dome, so you won’t want for dirt, grass or or yellow wool anytime soon. However, and this is a pretty big however, the map has been constructed on the Flatlands setting, which means you can’t just go ahead and dig for the resources you’re going to need. You’ll have to explore for them.

All in all this is a pretty deep survival / adventure map with a frosting of puzzle and parkour. If you’re looking for something new, a well rounded minecraft experience in the hands of a creator who knows how to pique your interest and make a world worth exploring, then The Lost Paradise is a minecraft map you should download.
