Block to the past is a 1:1 scale recreation of the overworld from Link to the Past for SNES. It features its own texture pack to add to the look of the map. The map includes all the interiors of the dungeons and houses and allows the player to play through the story just like the snes version, or it can be toured for the nostalgia. You can check out the thread on the minecraft forums at http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/427992-creationadv-legend-of-zelda-block-to-the-past-v-094-700-downloads for more details.

This map has just gone through a major upgrade and now includes features for Minecraft version 1.5. Please download the 1.5 pre-release, or this map will not work.
The map REQUIRES an easy difficulty or higher. You CANNOT load the map in peaceful or all the monsters will despawn.
This map also REQUIRES the texture pack, which can be downloaded at http://adf.ly/KVj8g
This map is designed for 1-4 players.
Progress: 100% Complete

Yes, unfortunately. I'm a father of 2 now and between my family and my job I dont have any time to work on this map. I may update it some day, but it's very unlikely.

if you dropped down and 2 monsters attacked you, then the sword was in the chest right at the entrance.

Anytime. I'd like to point out as well, some of the NPC events aren't working, and I had to dive into the red stone to fix it. A good example would be after you finish the first dungeon, and you return to the elder. He doesn't say anything, which means you need to dive into the redstone and replace a redstone torch

Apart from that, the map is great, and I will release a series on my YouTube channel

Have a nice day!

Hey guys, just to give you a deserved update. Unfortunately this project had to be abandoned about a year ago. I am in the Navy and I go out to sea quite often so I don't have the opportunity to work on this map. This, unfortunately, means there will not be a dark world update. I am very seriously considering updating this map to include the features in the new minecraft updates because this map has had so much positive feedback, and a lot of the mechanics from the original map are broken now (doors, redstone, etc).

So this map is spectacular. I am going to make it into an adventure map utilizing the command blocks that have been put in semi-recently. I shall refer everything back to the creator of the map. The thing Is Im not good at making the maps myself, but I can take something and ad touches to polish it, (for example, with the command blocks, I can place a certain number of enemies in the right area and have teleporters take someone from the dungeon to the entrance/ have the story dialogue play at the right time etc.) Pretty much everything (except the actual monsters involved in zelda) I want to make like the actual game itself.

My first plan is to adjust the map to the changes made to minecraft, then redo the tower on death mountain now that the height of the map has increased.

initially I thought about putting a single portal at the top of Agahnim's tower. I would probably have to make several changes to the game as some of the puzzles require moving back and forth between the dark and light world. I'll do my best to make it fun though
