Happy 10th Birthday, Assassin of Steve! To celebrate, I have created a 10th Birthday Edition that increases the spawn rate of all mobs by 10x!
It is recommended that you play this edition with a large multiplayer group and with a decent amount of RAM! (I had minimal problems playing on an 8GB RAM server)

Steve has been assassinated! Your mission is to defeat the Assassin, but he flees to hazardous locations home to evil monsters...
This is my first adventure map that was originally published back in March 2014 for Minecraft 1.7. It has since been updated to later versions 1.8, then 1.9, and now settling on 1.10. During its time this map has amassed over 50,000 downloads across all sites. It is still a great challenge to play if you want to have a great adventure with lots of mob slaying and boss fighting whether solo or with friends.

Notable features:
  • Heavily customized mobs.
  • Custom loot tables
  • Difficulty setting.
  • Difficulty scales additionally with multiplayer.
  • Incredible challenges and puzzles.
  • Intense boss fights and events.
  • XP shops.
  • Hidden lore books.
  • Epic storyline.
  • Custom music resource pack (optional - see below)
Players: 1-4
Gameplay time: 6-8 hours
Minecraft versions: 1.10.2

Warning: Do not play in 1.11 or higher!

Using the custom music resource pack:
You can download the optional music resource pack here.
It has custom music which can be turned on and off with the setting labelled 'Custom Music' in the Music and Sound options in your options. It is not required you use the resource pack with the custom music, however it is recommended as it adds to the atmosphere and adventure of the map. You must turn off 'Vanilla Music' if you have Custom Music on so they don't overlap.

If you are a Youtuber:
If you are recording a series of this map, please credit us in the video or in the description, and leave a link to this map's page. If you finish the map your series might just get featured on Assassin of Steve's Planet Minecraft, Minecraft Forum, and Hypixel threads!
And remember to pronounce my name right! Cavinator1 is cave-in-eight-or.

Download the official map walkthrough here! (Only use if you're really stuck)

Important settings:
You can play with 1-4 players. When opening to LAN, set gamemode to Adventure and cheats to OFF.
When using a server enable command blocks.
In the Video Settings set your render distance to 9 chunks (very important setting - the map will bug if not adhered), and we recommend setting brightness to bright. Set GUI scale to Normal. Not Large or Auto. Do anything else you can to reduce lag, especially if you have a slow computer.

If you enjoyed this map, be sure to try its sequel, Assassin of Steve 2: The Tribal Snouts! Assassin of Steve 3: Endergeddon is also now here!

Download the 5th Birthday Edition here.
Warning: It is recommended you only play the 5th or 10th Birthday Edition if you have already played the full map normally.
Download the regular map through the mirror download.

Happy 10th Birthday! : by Cavinator1 03/30/2024 9:14:55 pmMar 30th

- To celebrate Assassin of Steve's 10th Birthday, a special edition of the map has been made available through a separate download link in the description.
- It increases the spawn rate of all mobs by 10x!
- For example, this means instead of fighting 15 Undead Farmers at the beginning of the map, there are 150 of them!
- You will also need 10x as many items to complete certain sections of the map (for example, when defeating the 150 Undead Farmers, you will need to collect all 150 of their wheat and put it in the hopper to progress).
- This also applies to most bosses - 10 of them will spawn, and in most cases you will need to defeat all of them to progress!
- It is intended that you play this edition with a large multiplayer group!

The optional music pack download link is not working :(
I really want to play it with the music pack, as the map's intro said that it's recommended

Edit: For now, I will just use paradox osts in background

You have to let the police kill you. Then you'll respawn in their prisoner van, and then you'll be teleported to the Ice Prison.
