Colossal Caverns:
'Colossal Caverns' is a map made by my group of nine friends using the latest 1.5.2 technology. It is based on a large ancient set of caverns which collapsed in on itself and as time passed by, plantation grew over it.

Size:
The map is 250 blocks in radius, and has roughly 250 chests.

Features:
We have made sure that it has plenty of structures, parkour, traps, and puzzles for those true survivalist explorers out there. On top of that, we have added epic scenery. Meaning you can have epic battles on bridges, mountains, lava platforms and more. We have added parkour into the map as a bit of a chase-breaker, so you can use the parkour as a last resort to get away from your enemies shall they fear the loss of their very own life.

Accessibility:
We have made sure that the ways up to the top of the map are fun to use. Not to mention our use of very original ideas fitted around the map.

Death-match Arena:
We have added an arena at the coordinates 0 10 70 (The coordinates to the map itself are -2187 44 -1283). The arena also has a very original, unused idea that we hope you'll all enjoy.

Should have been a bit higher in the results, you just didn't have enough chests I think.

Those parts are supposed to be quite dark. I mean, it is a cavern after all. It was pitch black though so we had to light it up a bit and we decided to only light certain areas to give it that civilization feel. :)

We ran out of space to fit structures because of the amount of structures already on. We could have squeezed in some more but that would have taken away the jungle feel. I don't see your point about fall damage though. Cliffs are cliffs, you know?

I think the map will be a way to big for a Sg map. It's twice a big as the biggest Sg map. And if someone crouch at the top of the map. How will someone find him? It will be 30 min matches every time someone play at it. Sorry, but I don't gonna give this a diamond.

For the record, the largest SG map is 500 blocks in radius which makes it 1000 blocks in diameter. Our map is 250 blocks in radius making it 500 blocks in diameter. Plus we have thought through oh how someone might do such a thing and that is why more of the top areas are in the middle and there is hardly any accessibility to the top outside rimming (Yet there is still some). You shouldn't really be having too much trouble on this map. I don't mean this in a rude, mean way, but please make sure your facts are correct before you go around suggesting things.

But your's map is on 2 floors. So it is one of the biggest, just MUCH jungle.

First of all, do us all a favor. Go to school and learn how to speak. Second of all, there is not a lot of a second floor element to the game. You will find that you will spend most of the time on the ground that you will above. Plus, if you actually download the map, you will realize that most of that top area is inaccessible. And by math standards, the two floors (the accessible parts of it) combined still do not create a map anywhere close to the size of the largest map. Why don't you download the map and try out the gameplay for yourself instead of criticizing things you don't even KNOW about.

I do like the map, & the terraforming, diamond for that ;) But I think the actual gameplay of this map would be terrible. Why? For one, as the comments say down there, vines. Vines are TERRIBLE for SGs, they are plain annoying. Also, the terraformed carved cliff faces, fall off, die, RAGEQUIT. Anyway, ignoring gameplay, it's a great map, probably one of my faves so far :)

P.S You know, originality isn't everything. I've seen original entries (Space SGs, Maze SGs etc) that would be just awful gameplay.

As Oli said in the comments below, our team hates vines in SG maps just as much as you do. That is why we have done our best to make it so there are really no vines hanging off the sides of trees. There are vines on some of the logs of the trees, but that really shouldn't get in the way of anything. The only really thing we have done with the hanging of vines was hanging them off the side of the cliffs for aesthetic purposes, and in some cases, for parkour purposes. And for falling off the cliffs and dieing? Well I guess that would be your fault now wouldn't it lol. :)
