Level 77 : Legendary Princess
This Survival Island is compatible with Minecraft 1.3 and up!


You arethe crew of a merchant ship, passing by a small set of islands, a storm has been raging for hours when suddenlya terrifying lightning bolt strikes your ship! Even though it was raining the fire spread throughout the ship letting water pour in. You manage to crash into a nearby island before the ship begins to sink, the fire has stopped and the sun appears - but it's starting to set, seems like you're unlucky...

You and your crew must survive on the island until another merchant ship passes by, butwho knows how long that will take. Maybe there is a washed up chest from other ships which have had similar problems on the island.

The Merchant Village

Now complete, this includes a dock with small shops with a path leading to the village, this is where the map finishes (Unless you want to explore the world and the stronghold next to the village). Pretty much means your main goal in this map is to make it back home.


Added a nice trailer for this survival map. Thanks to my friend Gurlim! :)

Recent Activity:

Updated the map to 1.3, small fixes and such. Updated video.

Thanks for all the positive comments, Remember to give this a diamondif you liked my world! If you do even more people can discover this map, so it's greatly appreciated!:)

Additional Notes

How to install this world:

To play the downloaded world first un-zip the file using a program such as WinRAR or 7Zip, you can unzip the file anywhere for now.
This should make a folder named "Survival Island - Stranded", you want to place this folder in your minecraft game folder with your other save files.

If your un-sure on how to find your Minecraft game folder follow these steps (for windows):

1. click the "start" button down the bottom left of your screen.
2. In the search box type %appdata% and click the folder named "roaming"
3. In this "roaming" folder should be your minecraft folder named .minecraft
4. In here you will find a folder named "saves" that should have all your worlds in there, if you would
like to play this world all you need to do is drag and drop the "Survival Island - Stranded" folder into it.

why do you give a spawn egg then tell us not to spawn anything?

Level 77
Legendary Princess
December 15, 2013, 12:32 pm

Good point, I guess it's because (before leashes) having animals trapped underground would be really painful to get back to the surface. Using the spawn eggs provided isn't against the rules though. :)

I thought this was a server at first but then I realised it's a map. I was pretty disappointed since I have a Mac computer and am not sure how to get mods/texture packs/maps on to my Minecraft. Someone else with Mac please help, I am really confused of how to do it.

August 28, 2013, 2:03 pm

It's pretty easy. Do the shortcut Command+Shift+G, then in the window that comes up, type "~/Library" without the quotes. Then open the folder "Application Support", and then the folder "minecraft". Take the map file that you downloaded and put it into the "saves" folder, then open Minecraft and enjoy!
