We refuse to send you anywhere with horrible ads.

Captive Minecraft is a new Survival gametype utilising 1.8's World Borders.

You spawn in a 1x1 box. For each new Minecraft Achievement you get, the World Border widens by half a block in each direction. As your captive world slowly expands, you gain access to more and more resources.  You'll have no trouble Getting Wood or Taking Inventory, but suddenly making that cake and riding a Pig off a cliff isn't so simple...

Best played with a group of great friends, although single player makes for some good old fashioned Minecraft fun.  Get as many achievements as you can!

Go download the map from thefarlanders.com/captiveminecraft

Are you sure it is virus free?? It's just that I accidentally got a virus on on my grandma's PC before and she had to get a whole new one and I don't want to accidentally get annother virus on it.

On the website, it says you can't get the 'On a Rail' achievement. You can, if you make a circle of rails and ride it around for a while. It worked for me :P

They should do the thing that that did in the 2nd map, where they set up command blocks so you only have to travel 1000 blocks on rails, not horizontally. that way, you can get the acheivment.
Wow, great map!

It's in the description
i'm trying to make a server with this map in it, when i try to login it says:
Probably beacuse of the scoreboard, then if i delete the scoreboard and we get in we can't see the world borders, we obviusly have command block active, we are using a verygames hosting server for this, can you guys help us out please?

ps: i've also tryed it in single player and there's no boarders, dahell?:|
you have to play in 1.8 snapshot (lastest snapshot is the best yet)
I went into the nether using the broken portal then broke the portal wich was in the nether and did /kill then broke the one on earth then made a portal and it teleported me in the nether out of the border and inside the nether portal I CAN'T DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN  ALT+F4 I CANT TYPE OR BREAK :c
Play snapshot 14w20b, or watch video about it.
Saw on Cavemanfilms, immediately wanted Diamond has been added + fav

You can do it horizontally too. (Up and down.)
For "Sniper Duel" you have to kill a Skelly that's 50 blocks away. Unless you can get 100 achivements, you can't do Sniper Duel. It's like "On A Rail", it's basically impossible.

Ok, don't know about anyone else ive completed every achievement besides throwing diamond to other player(doin singleplayer), the rail achievement, and the end achievements. Can't do the end achievements cause according to the eye of ender i threw, it goes beyond the world border. Glitch? or impossible to finish atm?
Have you tried digging down? On my map, the end portal is directly below spawn, nearly to bedrock. The portal is slightly out of the border, but I think it should be possible to activate eventually. I haven't got that far to opening it, but I have found the portal.

Throw it to a zombie. Might take a few tries but it works.
The Farlanders say that currently it's impossible. You're fine :D

Great map until I entered the nether and suffocated.  Seems to happen every other attempt or so (relogging helps for one entry).  Also, ghasts were outside the world border in the nether and were able to move around and shoot at me.
So far this is an epic map! What a cool idea! BTW, I just started my new series! It would be cool if you could check it out :D
Hi! We love the map and have just started a multiplayer let's play of it! Come check it out here:
Captive Minecraft: Episode 1 - Achievement Get!
And Subscribe for more!
For the ending of the map, it would be cool if the world border increased a ton and then went away to resemble you being free.
You can't turn off the world-border once it's on, although you can make it Really Really, REALLY big.

umm if you make it like really really REALLY big, it will kinda go away because its so far away from the player,
Thank you so much for creating this map, I've recorded my journey so far on here being 2+ hours and I'll try and post it when I finish. I've been with you guys since before Block-aid and enjoying every video since. I was bummed you guys weren't posting very often lately but  I knew something great was coming and here we are. Keep up the amazing work guys and I'll be sure to give you the credit whenever I get around to posting my playthrough. Mine and Craft your long lived journeys my friends, Thanks a ton :D

I have done as said, all steps, unzipped, right version, and repetead several times, it still doesn't work :( i really want to play!!!!
I get that you're supposed to get the Cow Tipper achievement from the one cow that spawns early on, but cows don't always drop leather. Mine didn't drop any and I seem to be stuck.
so a flipping creeper blew up the spawner? what do i do now? do i still need the spawner?

oh and better news.. my villager despawned
You don't NEED it persay, but it is helpful b/c it spawns in new animals every time you expand the border. There's a chance they'll spawn anyway, but it'd definitely be easier with that spawner there. If you aren't too far into it, maybe re-start? (delete your save and re-drag the new file into your saves folder).
