The premise of this map is simple: jump from the very top of the map down to bedrock without dying. In other words, dive through the sky. Hm. Yes. We begin to see where some of these mysterious terms come from, don’t we? This minecraft map is pretty much a minecraft remake of AaAaAA!!! – A Reckless Disregard for Gravity.
Skydive Minecraft is suitable for both single player and multiplayer server play, so you and all your friends can jump together, finally answering the age old question: If all your friends were going to jump off a tower, would you do it too? Yes. As it turns out, you totally would.
If you’re playing in singleplayer without mods, you have a bit of a hike to the top, but vine travel is very comfortable these days and you can just sit back and enjoy the journey. You’re going to wish minecraft had some kind of auto run/ climb button, but the work taken getting to the top will totally be worth it. Maybe next time the spawn will be at the top. Maybe it won’t. There’s no fun in climbing Mount Everest if you’re born at the top of it. After a while, you forget that you’re climbing and it starts to feel like a really slow horizontal race against nothing.
The other gift the climb gives you is a very real appreciation of just how far you’ll be falling once you make the dive. It’s a long way down. A very long way. In fact, this map may actually give you a sense of vertigo.
Once you start playing you’ll probably die quite a lot. The flying mechanic isn’t exactly sorted in minecraft and getting your line right is a difficult task at the best of times. Still, a new challenge is always a welcome thing in minecraft, isn’t it? If all those islands were getting stale, this is the sort of thing that will shake you up and make you grateful for solid ground.
