This *NEW* type of minecraft survival map places farming at the fore. In order to complete the challenges, you must farm and trade your way to gaining the substances you hold so dear. The objective of the game is to level up and gain XP through the art of farming. Basically this is Minecraft’s answer to Farming Simulator 2013.
What’s so difficult about farming? Well nothing really I suppose. Except when dirt isn’t dirt and grass isn’t grass and you’re working with nothing but a bunch of wool. Then it can be pretty difficult. It’s not just the top layer that is wool either. If you dig down you’ll find the that the map maker has played the cute trick of substituting green wool for grass, brown for dirt right under it – and if you dig down three layers of dirt or so, you’ll find a gray layer of wool for stone.
So then, the game begins with just two blocks of dirt and one block of grass. Use your resources wisely, oh minecraft farmer. That one little patch of grass is more valuable than you can imagine. Or exactly as valuable as you imagine if you imagine that one block of grass can make or break a game.
Once you get your little farm going you’ll be able to trade in your XP for new items. That’s the magic of minecraft 1.4.2 right there. Drop into the Nether Portal and find yourself in a trading hall where two levels of XP will get you a packet of seeds, and twenty levels will get you an enchanting table. If you get lonely, an ocelot can be spawned for a mere ten levels, though you should probably focus on obtaining grass, cheap at one level per block!
This is a brilliant and entirely new twist on the minecraft survival experience, so much so that it’s probably not even correct to call it a survival map. It’s a farming map. A farming survival trading map. A minecraft farsurtrad map download. Argh. Whatever. Just play it.
