Want to play treasure hunt in minecraft? Visit the Bravo Network minecraft server (presumably not related to the actual Bravo Network on account of that would make less sense than a porcupine stuck in a cuckoo’s nest. The plugin functions as such: a player begins the treasure hunt by finding a chest. They are then given the co-ordinates of the next chest and when they find that they must then find the next chest and the next chest, so on and so on until they find a final chest full of wonderful goodies, including randomly generated unique items, which are all the more unique for having been generated without any form of coherent sense in mind. The generated items are wonderful though, they include things like swords which cause ligtening bolts to come crashing down from on high, pickaxes which allow players to teleport, and armor that is impervious to any blade. Shiny!
Let me begin this by saying that DayZ, is the scariest video game I’ve played in a very long time. The mod based on Arma II shoves you in the middle of a militarized landscape with pretty much nothing for survival. If you want to survive, you’ll have to investigate abandoned buildings, kill and steal from other players and generally explore and fight your little heart out.
What Is MineZ?
MineZ is much more than a minecraft server, it is a multi-server Minecraft MMO based on the Arma II DayZ mod – meaning that the main order of the day is killing and / or running away from zombies. When not being hunted by zombie hordes, MineZ players explore a post-apocalyptic world populated with cities, towns and other resources. This is technically a minecraft mod, but it is hosted entirely server-side, so anyone with an un-modded copy of vanilla Minecraft can join and play without having to download or install any files.
MineZ contains a whole lot of new game mechanics, including thirst. When you spawn, you do so with a piece of paper (which I later discovered functions as a bandage), a wooden sword, a full water bottle (refillable at water sources) and an eye of ender, used for chat and a few other things.
There are two main types of NPC, bandits (hostile) and healers (friendly). Players also tend to be hostile, as I discovered when I was ended by a leather clad chappy surrounded by zombies whilst I was trying to work out where I was. I suppose he has my eye of ender and my water bottle now. Unfortunately for him, I already used up my bandage by right clicking it by accident.
This extensive 6000 x 4000 minecraft world map download is pretty perfect for anyone looking for a custom built minecraft world with custom built villages. If you’re tired of wandering through ‘randomly generated’ territory it’s time to explore something created a little more intentionally – both with your friends and complete strangers who might happen to stumble on to your server in an eternal search for lava and flint and steel.
