All hope is dying, there is no more than you, the last representative of the human race. You are rescued by a magical force that takes you back in a distant past. In this world, the Dahäl exist… You will learn that the cause of your misfortunes is none other than Ranegot, a corrupt immortal, enemy of seven kingdoms ; and there is only one way to overcome : to gather 9 powerful gems scattered in 4 of the seven kingdoms.

A journey full of obstacles, puzzle, epic fights against in gargantuan amount of monsters or against more and more smart and powerful boss are waiting ! For helping you in your quest, you teach to control the Dahäl trough spell book (original and unique with minecraft vanilla !). You can personalised your equipment with many different weapons and armors. You can find them with farming or you can buy them in different shop in exchange of local currency : Chronoton! Furthermore, your experience will increase your abilities trough an original system of evolution.

Good luck, you’re the only one that can do the difference !

Aspects et details of the gameplay

Basic Gameplay

Across The Time is a map, entirely built for vanilla minecraft (no need of mod).
The Map is inspired by RPG Adventure like Zelda or Secret Of Mana with loot systems like Diablo or Borderlands.

You need to accomplish quests, fighting a lot of monsters and boss in a lot of dungeons more and more big!
The game is focused on PvE (PvP isn’t available) and also provided with events like puzzle, platforms, enigma, etc…
A unique development system supports players trough the experience gained and a well developed economy allows players to buy, to sell, to exchange in different shop
You can do this adventure alone or with friends, but it’s advisable to be no more than 3 players on the map.

La map is semi-open world : large zones and regions were created to allow players freedom but will be partly driven by the main quest.
Of course, a dozen of secondary quests is waiting to extend the life of the game
Finally, you need between 20 and 30 hours of play to defeat the map.

Fight Monster and Elites

Like we said, it’s a PVE game, many battles await you with course difficulty increasingly enhanced.

Each dungeon have his boss and small-boss with hundreds of minions! The free areas are provided all kinds of monsters that you try to block the road.
In some free zones, monsters regularly spawn, you can increase your power to fight against this monsters.
Each monster has his own special capacity (different speed, increased life, increased strength etc...) and is obviously equipped with a wide variety of armour and weapons.
You can fight with sword, bow with more and more powerful enchantment, but also with spell.

You gain one bonus heart after each death of a boss.

Magic and Spell

To help you in your fight against the corruption, you may cast spells all more original and miscellaneous than the others, for example :
- Invocation (wolf, golem etc…),
- Renewal of life
- Slowing Aura
- Rain of Arrows
- Fireball

So, you can cast spells through books. They will unlock according on the progress of the player. The magical gauge is called Dahäl and is evolutive.

Fireball Spell

Farming, Loot and Items

Almost all the items of Minecraft are available on the map and you can buy, sell, drop on monsters or find in chests...
are various kinds of weapons and armor classified according to their
powers and rarities : Sacred, legendary, sets, magic or normal!
Do not forget, each item is useful, indeed they can be for most sold on the black market.

It is possible and sometimes necessary if you want to improve you and loot the many legendary items owned by the enemy!
number of monsters you'll face will always be more important and
difficult depending on your progress! That is why you need to equip
yourself and loot.

Know that monsters, bosses and elites have a
small chance to dropped powerful items, so do not lose hope. Some Elites
are unique but some dungeon bosses can be farmed!

Elites and
some secrets also drop a rare currency: "Ecaille Souveraine du Chaos".
It used to buy you a type of very powerful items : the Sacred items.

Choice of the class

To give a RPG touch, the player need to choose between 8 class at the beginning of the game !

class has his own feature, like unique spell book, or passive
abilities. For example : Dahäl regeneration for sorcerer, two hearts
more for the warrior, etc.

Take a look at the different available class :
- Warrior,
- Druid,
- Ninja,
- Alchemist,
- Farmer,
- Healer,
- Hunter,
- Sorcerer.

Deeds of valor and secondary Quests

To complicate adventure, all deeds of valor or goals may be validated.

So, you have to perform some kind of secondary challenges such as :
- Kill on thousands monsters,
- reach the 80 level
- Gain 2500 chronoton,
- etc…

These goals aren’t imposed but you will be rewarded according to what you have accomplished !
But, to extend the life-time of the game, a dozen of secondary quests are available in some places of the game that you have to discover.

Mode, difficulty and death

At the beginning of the adventure, during tutorial, you will have the possibility to choose between two game-mode :
- Softcore-mode : You lost only 1 level per death, heart regeneration by food is activated, the effects when you are badly wounded, are reasonable.

- Nightmare-mode : You lost 2 level and 10 Chronoton per death, heart regeneration by food is deactivated, after badly wounded the effects are very restrictive (slowdown, bleeding etc…)

With these two modes will be added an opportunity to play easy, normal and hard. Be careful if you play in multiplayer, an automatic system is activated and the difficulty changes depending on the number of players on the map :
- 1 player : easy,
- 2 players : normal,
- 3 players : hard.

Do not worry about death, many Checkpoints are placed throughout the adventure. You can enable them by clicking a button that is recognizable by yellow sponge blocks.

Keys and locks

During this journey you will find many locked doors and mechanisms. To unlock the doors, a key system was created for the map.
Simply put a key (renamed and of varying shape) in a container that will be located in front of each mechanism.
Of course there will be more or less difficult to obtain these keys.

Hunger and potions

As you guessed, the food is present in the game. You will need to intelligently manage this resource because you can not cultivate.
Obviously you will find some food on monsters, many chests and you can also buy in a specialty store.

Concerning the potions, a system of limitation and recycling of empty potions has been created!
There is therefore limited you the number of potions in the game, but it is possible to recycle the empty bottles to buy more potions in the shop provided for this purpose.

NPC and dialog

You will meet a lot of NPCs to talk your way. NPCs are usually found in the villages but you can also meet in different locations across the map, away from civilization.

The dialogue system is automatic, you just have to approach the NPC to talk. Some NPC ask you questions that you can choose the answer by clicking in the chat window.

Visit every corner, because some NPC give clues and quests which awesome rewards.

Adventure Mode & anti-cheat

You will understand, the game is in adventure mode, you can’t break blocks, tape command, etc.
A security system is in charge of stop « briefing » and block the creative game mode. You can try but it’s at your own risk.

Economy and Skills

Skills & evolution system

This terrible adventure will put you in difficult situations, the skills evolution systems is created to answer that.
During the game, your character will gain more and more experience, thanks to this Xp, you will be able to exchange against advantageous abilities.

Many effects are available from the weapons master, with several level unblock :

- Force I, II, III, IV

- Resistance I, II, III, IV
- Speed attack I, II, III
- Renewal of Dahäl I, II, III, IV
- Renewal of heal I, II, III, IV

Money & Shops

A important part of the game that we can’t to undervalue : the economy.
The principal money of the game is the « Chronoton »
Every monsters killed will give you ONE Chronoton, but the sell of recyclables items or the secrets’s searching will give you more.

All these Chronotons give you the possibility to buy a lot of items in different shops in the main village of the game :
- Alchemist (potion’s shop)
- Smith (Weapons and armour shop)
- Grocer (food shop)
The Palace sell sacred items.
Indeed, an other money is available in the game. This money is called « Sovereign Shell of Chaos ». With this, you can buy powerful sacred items in the game. This money can be found in some chests and on some monsters or Boss.

Black market

As mentioned previously, you’ll be able to exchange many objects like (zombie meat, wire spider, skeleton bones, etc.)
Indeed, thanks to Hannibal Chau’s black market, any useless monsters drops can be exchanged in Chronotons.

You will just to put items on specific container, and it’s done. Thanks to that, every drops, every items give you a benefit.


The Bank is a popular place for multiplayer game, because the money exchange system between player is developed in it.
The Bank is in the Palace, you can exchanged 5, 50 or 500 Chronotons per click.
You will find in the Bank a exchange system of Chronoton to XP, and XP to Chronoton.

Redstone system and command

Behind this huge map is hiding a system that we would like to show you to prove all of the gameplay.
Many redstones systems have been created, for boss, for the economy, for many challenges. Every systems include command blocks with specific codes to improve
the functioning of the events, puzzles ou mechanism.

Music and resourcepack

General :

  • How to install a Minecraft map?
– Download the map.
– Go to the folder where all your downloads are located (usually in the download folder), and unzip the zip file of the map you just downloaded.
– Then access your file .minecraft :
PC : C: -> Users -> admin -> AppData -> Roaming -> and open the « .minecraft » folder. If you don’t find, search by writing this : %appdata%.
MAC: The .minecraft folder is in : User -> Library -> Application Support.
– Put the file of the map that you unzipped in the folder : .minecraft/saves.

  • How to install a Resource pack?
To install a resourcepack on Minecraft, handling is the same as for installing a map, except that the directory in which you extract the resourcepack is located in the folder : .minecraft/resourcepacks.

Once installed in the folder, you can run Minecraft. Then to use it, go to « Options » -> « resoursepack » and drag the icon of resourcepack found in the left column to place it in the right column.

  • Where can I download your adventures maps?

You can download maps through the site menu Adventquest in « DOWNLOAD » . Once on the page, click on the banner of the map and the version you want to download.

  • Can we play multiplayer on your map?

Yes, you can play multiplayer on our maps, but be aware that depending on the number of players, this will change the difficulty. So, avoid being more than 5 on the same map because this will greatly spoil your

  • I would like to put your map on a server to play multiplayer. What are the conditions that the map works normally?

To play on our maps in multiplayer with a server, you will need to activate imperatively the commands blocks. For that, you have to enable the setting in the server properties : « enable-command-block=true« .
Think also to enable the spawn monsters : « spawn-monsters=true« .
And set the gamemode parameter in Adventure : « gamemode=2 »

  • Can I use mods to play your adventure map?
It is pretty inadvisable to use mods changing the gameplay on our maps adventures, since they were created for the Vanilla Minecraft.
Nevertheless, certain modes as Optifine can be very useful and does not cause any problems.

  • I like your work, I would love to support you. Where can I make a donation to the Team?
If you like our work, you can support us by making a donation through Paypal directly simply by clicking on the « Make a Donation » button on the page of the Team.

  • I love creating videos while I am playing and I would love to do a series on one of your adventure map to post them on youtube. Do I need permission from you?
Not at all. You can make videos of our maps without any problem.
Nevertheless think to share the link of the map you make by specifying the authors, this is the minimum to respect our work.

  • I’d love to be part of your team to help you in developing maps adventures. Do you always recruit new members, and if so where do I apply?
For the moment we do not recruit new members.

Across The Time :

  • What version of Minecraft should I use to play Across The Time?
You should use at least version 1.8 of Minecraft to play Across The Time.

  • I do not find the link to download the resource pack for Across The Time.
The resource pack can be downloaded alone, it is in the same file as the map Across The Time. Once the zip file of the map unzipped, you will find a resourcepack folder to copy/paste in your « .minecraft » -> « resourcepacks« .

  • I play on a server with a friend and we can’t talk to the first NPC in the tutorial. I have an error message in the chat, how to remedy this problem?
If you can not talk to an NPC on the map, it’s because you have surely forgot to enable the commands blocks. For this, change the properties ofyour server by activating the command blocks : « enable-command-block=true« .

  • I’m stuck and I have surely seen a bug. What should I do to fix this and continue the map?
If you encounter any bug you can consult the section Tips/Help of Across The Time to see if the bug has not already been identified and fixed.

If the bug you encountered is not listed, you can use the minecraft commands directly by writing in the chat. For example if you’re stuck or lost, you can use the command « /kill » to kill you and go back to the last checkpoint.

Also the commands « /tp x y z » or « /setblock x y z [​blockname] » will allow you to unlock certain areas.

  • I can not change gamemode, it is written that I cheat and I lose my chronoton. Is this normal?
Yes it’s normal, the map Across The Time has an anti-cheat system created by ourselves to limit the people to cheat too easily (an understandable reflex, but all too common in Minecraft). Therefore you can not change
your gamemode in Creative, Adventure, Survival during your adventure.

  • I have lost all my Dahal, my Upgrades and my chronoton for no reason! How can I recover all of this?
This is a bug that can sometimes happen. If this bug happens you must consult our page Tips/Help, you will see that we have noted and we give you all the steps necessary to remedy this bug.

  • My minecraft sometimes lags in certain parts of the map causing a lot of problems and FPS drops. How can I reduce freeze and lag?
The freezes in Across The Time may be common in some areas, such as in the village of Ëarndhel, the city Hill-Valley, Ouranos or the last dungeon. This is due to an abundance of Redstone systems concentrated in a
relatively small place and also to light bugs related to Minecraft.

There are different ways to reduce freezes and increase FPS. First you must check your Minecraft video setting, for example the « render distance » for changing the loading distance of your chunks.

More you will decrease this setting, the less you will see far, but you willgain more FPS. However for Across The Time, avoid dropping below 6 chunks as it may cause bugs in Redstone systems.

If that is not enough you can always try to install the Optifine mod that lets you change much more graphics parameters.
