Crack in the World - Earth-shattering fun Minecraft Map

What happens when a desperate geologist gets ahold of large explosives in a vain attempt to save his beloved geothermal power plant?

Crack in the World - Earth-shattering fun Minecraft Map

Your car has broken down so you head to a nearby town to stay the night. You soon learn that something is going on around there. What is that man running the power plant up to? You have to explore the area to find out and stop him!

Crack in the World is a short adventure map focused on story and special effects. In typical adventure fashion, you go around exploring places, talking to NPCs to gather information and items, and unlocking the next part of the story.
I would not consider this map difficult. It can be completed in approximately 30 - 40 minutes.

  • Awesome cutscenes and special effects

  • Custom resource pack with block shapes, textures, sounds, and music

  • An epic finale (no pics here so it's not spoiled ;-) )

  • This map is for Minecraft 1.8.1 (no mods).

  • Please turn off all other resource packs. There is a custom resource pack in the level directory so if you're playing in single player mode then it should load automatically. If you're playing on a server then the 'resources.zip' file in the level directory can be installed just like a normal resource pack on the clients.

  • If you're playing on a server then you must enable command blocks in the server config.

  • The map looks best when particles are set to "All" or "Decreased" and your render distance is greater than 6 chunks.

  • I tried to keep this compatible with multiplayer so it should work with multiple players if you stay somewhat together. Let me know if it works or breaks.

my review for this map: 70% of 100%
its a good map, fun, but hard, it haves a lot of combined commands, but there are some parts that are hard to understand what to do, example, i dont even knew that i have to ged the wither star, but, my minecraft is not 100% fast, i am good at parkour, but when the lava is raising, it was imposible, a lot of commands made my computer slow, and who can make parkour with a slow computer and LAG, and, i've reached the top of the mountain, i did'nt knew what to do, there was a weird path made with particles, so i decided to follow them, but, THERE WAS A INVISIBLE WALL, how could i win if there is a wall i cant cross, the lava reached me, then, some credist appeared, i've closed the map, i was not working,  i've pressed ESC like 5 times, it didnt worked, i've finished that map like 10 minutes ago, my minecraft is still "Not Responding", my review  is, half good, half bad, i will give this points to it

building; 9/10
redstone; 10/10
commands; 5/10
time that takes to finish it; 4/10, too short
texturepack; 7/10
end of the map; 5/10
hard/easy; 4/10

Here is my scoring for the map:
Architecture: 3/5
The structures were nice looking, but they werent too appealing to the eye to look at and were very basic.
Redstone: 5/5
This map uses redstone nearly to its highest potential. I wish that the cutscenes were spiced up a little, but from what players have been able to do with Redstone and Command Blocks, this is amazing work. Geysers(?)inside the volcano were an excellent obstacle, and being able to get the villagers/zombies to walk around very specifically was amazing. Using nametags as a way to give the dialogue was also spectacular.
Resources(Textures and Sounds):
There wasn't too much changed with this map except the Villagers (nice looking textures) and the bombs (they were also awesome, but it had a hard time blending in with the other flat-surfaced blocks in minecraft. Maybe add more specialized textured blocks?) although the music was fantastic. I really wish i was able to make my own music as well as they did.
This is where the map is struggling. I know that this is a Minecraft Adventure Map, but we should always have the highest standards on everything. The storyline at first was decent, but then the Mayor assigned you to a mission, and nobody even bothered to help you get back to your car and fix it. It was like your life didnt matter, and you were a hero doing their bidding. The dialogue was a bit cheezy at times, and the whole story was rushed. It went from casually asking for help to trying to save the world in just 20-30 minutes. Next time i would write a script for the map, have it reviewed by someone, then edit again. Do this until the reviewer(s) think it is a work of art, then build everything.
The gameplay was very nice, considering the very fun and challanging jump/lava/running parkour and the fistfight at the end. Although there were times between the parkour that was a little boring and confusing as to where to go, i enjoyed it.

This review may change over time, but for now this is what i score it as. I hope you take this constructive criticism into consideration as you continue creating works of art.
