The evolution of survival maps!
Well done with the voiced intro as well as the entire thing. You got me hooked and it has automatically gotten a fav and diamond, so I can find my way back to this for playing it tomorrow. Yours are the first I've found with a voiced intro and with the quality of this map, it sold it to me :) Thanks :)

Also, thanks a lot for the Adf.ly tip. I didn't know that and it will probably proove highly useful in the terms of my own buildings. Thanks again, I'll look out for your future projects :)
arctic abyss killed my whole family
Is it meant to be that all chests I find aren't filled with anything? Even the chests I find in secret places aren't filled with anything

This is a great adventure survival map, really makes you think about the way you play minecraft and it is hard enough to be challenging when you need a break from the "norm" vanilla minecraft :-)

Why does it say "Baldur Creations" when your username is CherryGoose Studios? You r suspicious sir.
Baldur made the trailer and is presenting Arctic Abyss in his video I suppose :P

He never seemed too fond of including CherryGoose within the trailer, even the link is in the description and not in the annotation :/

Are you sure it's in your save folder correctly? have you taken the map file out of the overall Arctic Abyss folder?

  • October 10, 2013, 6:07 am
Still not working
1st download the map, you should have 'Arctic Abyss Zip.zip'.
2nd unzip the file so you have 'Arctic Abyss 3.9'
3rd enter the folder and drag 'Arctic Abyss Map 3.9' or the hardcore version into your save folder

Find your saves folder in 'C:Users/YOUR NAME/AppData/Roaming/minecraft/saves'

Challenge accepted.

Arctic Abyss Remix will be released shortly.
'may NOT alter' I'm confused as to where the challenge is coming from...

i want to use the map of Asiandeream,Can I get you  a power of attorney.(?

Ohh…I’m sorry.
I mean, my friend and I have built a service and I wonder if we could get the rights to use your map in our server.
You may use the map if you credit it as our work and not your own.
