Wasteland Apocalypse, Minecraft Gravel Survival Map Download

All has become gravel in a minecraft survival map where grim landscapes and even grimmer chances of survival are the order of the day. You begin close to what was probably once a small fortress, but which is now a tattered pile of rubble. A few supplies can be scavenged here, but your hunger is already growing and food is the first thing on your mind. But where can food be found? Not growing in toxic gravel, that’s for sure.

As for wood, there is precious little of that. No trees grow in this dead land, though a few stumps are to be found hither and thither. In addition to the mob infested ruins plain to see above the ground, there are dungeons lurking beneath the gravel and sand. One may as well abandon all hope before descending, for the steep drops and the high pitched call of bats inform one that this is a trip likely to be taken in one direction only.

Ender Island, Minecraft Sky Survival Island

minecraft ender island map download

This is a minecraft survival island map created by an Ender Dragon, set loose to create destruction, the path of the dragon’s flight was cast in obsidian and then overlaid with ores, stone, dirt and trees to create a beautiful survival map. The result is a rather beautiful, albeit large and oddly shaped survival island in the sky. This map can be played as a traditional survival island map, or the player can choose to go ahead and spawn another Ender Dragon and watch it tear apart their entire world.
