Coming Fall 2022
Watch the trailer!
v2.2: Apotheosis will change Drehmal as you know it, truly putting it above and beyond any other Minecraft survival/adventure map. The update will feature hundreds of new structures, dozens of new dungeons from small to large, new towns and ruins, more than eight new Legendaries, a new Mythical, multiple new systems to keep you engaged and encourage exploration, an entirely original soundtrack, a complete overhaul of the main quest with freeform puzzles, several new story events, and much more.

The Apotheosis update is slated for a fall
2022 release.
Unfortunately we have had to delay the Apotheosis from Winter 2021. You can read more about the delay here.

Drehmal: PRIMORDIAL is a massive, one of a kind Minecraft survival/adventure map with a heavy emphasis on exploration. Featuring fantastical custom biomes, unique weapons with incredible abilities, thirteen custom villages, towns, and cities, over 400 loot-filled structures, new advancements, special traders, tons of dungeons, a fast travel system, and a nonlinear main quest.

Drehmal: PRIMORDIAL takes what makes Minecraft so great and brings it to the next level.

While most maps strive for realism or taking directly from our real world, Drehmal aims instead for fresh, unique, and sometimes whimsical terrain. Survival gameplay experience is the top priority in Drehmal, ensuring that your time with the map will always be fun. This isn’t just a survival map with some extra features, though…

Drehmal: PRIMORDIAL is a fresh experience that provides much more depth to basic Survival gameplay.

The world is filled with lore and small stories, each region and town having carefully thought out histories that are reflected to an extent in-game. This map is a part of an incredibly extensive worldbuilding project that myself and Keeko have been working on together for over four years now. You can read a heavily simplified timeline of the world's history here, if you're at all interested.

We just released our first major update: v2.1, the Timebreak update. If you’ve already played Drehmal, this update is a great time to start again. You can check out the full changelog in our public Discord, invite link in Important Info.

Separate Resource Pack Download:
Multiplayer servers need to have all players download the resource pack manually as it is too large to be a server resource pack.

  1. Drehmal v2: PRIMΩRDIAL is best played on small-scale multiplayer servers. Multiple goals across the map are designed with community in mind, such as unlocking all fast travel points, progressing the main story, and discovering all the weapons. However, the map is still perfectly playable in singleplayer. Some tasks may just be more tedious/difficult.

  2. If you plan on using this map on a Bukkit/Spigot multiplayer server, do not install the 'Essentials' plugin. Drehmal v2 is heavily reliant on command blocks, and Essentials will cause them to not work. Plugins that alter any pre-existing vanilla commands or affect scoreboards will probably cause command block logic to break.

  3. Make sure command blocks are enabled for your server.

  4. Disable spawn protection for your server.

  5. This map's terrain was created using the software WorldPainter, and due to its nature, animal spawns are rare. Most every animal you see across the map has been hand placed. If you stay in a chunk for long enough, animals will start to spawn very rarely. Be aware that they are a relatively finite resource, so animal breeding is encouraged.

  6. Accessing The End is not like vanilla Minecraft. Eyes of Ender will lead you nowhere, as there are no natural strongholds on the map. The End can be accessed by progressing through the Main Story.

  7. If you find a Cartographer villager, DO NOT LEVEL IT UP.
    As there are no naturally spawning Ocean Monuments on the map, cartographers are broken. When you level up a cartographer, it is guaranteed to get the trade for an ocean monument map. As there are no ocean monuments anywhere, the game will encounter an error and crash. Your world/server will be fine, just rolled back to a few minutes before the villager leveled up.

  8. When someone discovers a unique weapon, the crafting recipe for that weapon is unlocked for everyone else. Weapon crafting recipes can be viewed via the Recipe Book, and unlocks tracked under the 'WEAPONS OF LEGEND' advancement tab.

  9. Do not set the map to peaceful mode for any reason. Drehmal features a number of hand-placed enemies, and if they're in loaded chunks and the world is set to peaceful, they'll be gone forever. This can lead to one Mythic-tier weapon being unobtainable without using a command to force the advancement.

  10. Never do /kill @e unless you know what you're doing. Killing all entities will kill armor stands in forceloaded chunks, which are necessary to keep many features of the map working properly.

  11. Phantoms are disabled and do not naturally spawn. You can, however, find phantom spawners in a specific biome on the map. Phantom Membranes can also be acquired easily at a certain point through progression.

  12. If you journey out far enough into the ocean, you will eventually reach normal Minecraft terrain.

  13. While we've tried our best to keep the map bug-free as possible, there are a lot of command blocks, and we're only two people. If you find a bug, please let us know in the comments or via DM.

  14. If you have any questions, please join our public Discord! The invite link is above.
Known Bugs
Town music doesn’t fade when leaving a town. Minecraft bug, cannot be fixed.

Town music can only be turned up/down in the 10% range. Minecraft bug, cannot be fixed

Weapon and Class boots appear discolored in the recipe book.

Weapon and Class stats cannot be previewed in the recipe book.

Sometimes when leaving the spawn tomb you won't be teleported out of the stairwell. If this happens to you, run the command /tp @p 779 63 691

Sometimes a certain endgame boss will lock you out of its arena after dying to it. To fix, try this command: /scoreboard players set @e[​name=OsseinActive] OsseinActive 0

Sometimes towers will not count towards the scoreboard, meaning you cannot start the final story event. If you have all the towers and nothing happens, try this command: /scoreboard players set @e[​type=minecraft:armor_stand,name=TowerTracker] towers 28

Weapon abilities can be very buggy and inconsistent on Spigot/Paper/Bukkit servers, and sometimes on Vanilla servers. No known fix other than doing /reload.

Trading with a Cartographer Villager will CRASH YOUR GAME. No known fix.

Sometimes, glass in the Terminus will not disappear when unlocking a tower. To fix, do /team leave @p, enter creative mode, break the glass, and then do /team join players.

Can I use this map for an RPG server you are doing? I would completely change the lore, and just use the map.

Extremely cool map, just two questions though:

1. What is the latest version of Minecraft that it can be played with?

2. Is there any way to download only the map and nothing else? I'm looking for a big and highly-detailed map like this one but there's so many added features that make it un-vanilla.

This is insane, can't wait to try it out, it looks amazing and much have taken a lot of time and effort. I hope this map gets more recognition going forward. You are an inspiration to all map creators in minecraft. BTW I am writing this comment as it downloads onto my new computer as I had played I before and had an amazing experience but I am redownloading and can't wait to try out the new update. Great job to the builders that built this, you must be proud. Thanks for being so awesome.

Hey, much props on creating this map!

I was curious though, can this be played by also using plugins such as McMMO and AdvancedEnchantments?
