Sky Island maps are ubiquitous, but not all of them are good. Not all of them carefully secrete all the tools and materials needed for a complete play through of the game which will allow the player to first escape to the Nether, and then back to the world of the real. Skylight isn’t just a rip off of every other Sky Island map, it’s a thoughtful addition to the sky survival genre.
Shopping is a serious skill, much maligned in the modern world because of its association with superfluous waste, consumer greed and the destruction of the planet. But in minecraft, resources are as infinite as the universe itself, so you need feel no shame engaging in a battle of shopping survival.
Shopping survival is essentially a sky survival island map. But instead of sitting around watching a cobble generator run day and night, you get to trade with villagers, build up currency and buy your way to freedom. It’s the American dream, made in miniature.
You’ve played minecraft sky survival islands before, but have you played sky survival hot air balloons? This unique little minecraft survival map comes with more than 60 challenges – packing a big punch in a very little series of baskets. Each of the hot air balloons contains a resource – and often a surprise. Though you can’t fly these minecraft balloons, you can travel to various realms by harvesting the possibilities locked within these sky borne baskets.
You spawn in the middle of a balloon fleet, surrounded by colorful floating orbs. It’s a very pleasant way to be thrown into a world of harsh survival. From the outset you must start expanding, making your way between the balloons. Though precious resources are scattered in what seems to be abundance, you must first gather the tools to harvest those resources and that is more of a challenge than you might think.
As with many maps of this type, various biomes can be found in various balloons. Some of them might feel a little trite, but when it comes time to make your house in the sky, complete with glass windows, you’ll be glad for that little desert full of sand.
A solid little map, anyone who enjoys classic minecraft survival will enjoy Hot Air Balloon Survival.

There’s a platform in the sky. On this platform is a tree and evidence of someone having tried to pretty up the place before you go there. To your left is a sky ship, which goes nowhere. It’s all very disappointing really, the sort of conditions that could easily lead to dangerous levels of Steve depression – if it weren’t for the challenges!
There’s nothing like a nice minecraft mountain survival map, one that’s been made by someone who knows how to create natural looking terrain in minecraft which leaves the player feeling as if their mountain island lair might really be able to exist somewhere in the real world.
