Animated Minecart Rails

Animated textures really do represent the next giant step for minecraft-kind. With animated textures, the grass can blow in the wind, leaves on trees can rustle as you walk by, He Man can perform impromptu concerts for your amusement, and redstone can become something vital and alive, not just a line of bright red dust with the occasional particle effect if you’re lucky.

Zhemnadia, Minecraft RPG Adventure Map

Zhemnadia Minecraft Adventure Map Download

Every great story begins with a novice setting out into the world to become someone great. Zhemnadia is no different. This is, to all effects and purposes, a minecraft RPG map in which you play the role of someone aspiring to be a Templar knight.

This is the first minecraft adventure map I’ve ever played that started with credits. Like a move. Plot twist: player dies right at the beginning. Fortunately for us all, this is minecraft and death is not an end, just a precursor to respawning.

minecraft redstone update guide

The upcoming redstone update, otherwise known as Minecraft 1.5, is going to be a game changer. Get a drop on the changes and new blocks associated with the redstone update with this guide!

The redstone update is about making minecraft more complex, and whilst this might not please the casual player, many of these new additions to the game can be safely ignored. Where the redstone update will really come into its own will be in multiplayer servers, survival maps and adventure maps. The many new redstone blocks and mechanics mean that the player will be entering a whole new world, where opening a chest can trigger the spawning of a hostile mob and one redstone current can be mutiplied many times over, creating a chain of events linked to one action.

Catharsis, Minecraft Survival CTM Map Download of Despair

the broken beach

A combination CTM Survival map, Catharsis is sort of the minecraft equivalent of The Phantom Tollbooth . Set in caverns measureless to man and named with deep and meaningful titles like ‘The Intersection of Despair’, and ‘Broken Beach’, this isn’t just another complete the monument map challenge. It’s a way to cleanse yourself and make yourself whole. Or something. One does not simply complete the monument, you see. What one does, is one ‘fills the Altar of Consciousness’.

the heaven and hell of catharsis

This is actually a very enjoyable map. The locations are excellent and the map maker has done a fine job of taking the ‘catharsis’ theme and making it come to life in the many cavernous rooms the player finds him or herself in. The map is so large it almost counts as an adventure map, to be quite honest. It’s missing some elements of story, but there is a narrator that follows you throughout your journey and playing this map really does feel like going on a journey. Catharsis is definitely one of the Must Play Minecraft Maps for January 2013.
