Flying Islands Survival is my first, and most popular map. It is to be played on survival mode, played on about several islands with different features. The islands are all of different types corresponding to different biomes/areas/strucutres, etc... examples of these are Nether Island, Swamp Island, Starter Island, Village Island.
You will start on a spawning platform, you then teleport to the lobby and from there, you can get started. You start on the Starter island which contains basic materials (e.g. wood, coal, iron...) for you to then be ready to collet and loot from the other islands.
A lot of the islands will have Loot Chests, mostly containing Ender pearls and Enderman eggs. Enderpearls will be your best way of getting around. TIP: more exposed chests tend to have worse loot.
The cooler, more useful islands are further from the main islands and the lobby such as the Village, Mushroom, Fortress (substitute for stronghold), Nether Portal and End Portal islands.
There is a scoreboard system to count your deaths.

Be careful! Mobs can easily push you off so avoid too much combat unless you really need their loot.
EVERYTHING is hand built meaning that you will find a lot of differences from vanilla Minecraft as well as differences to how the terrain is done.

The map does NOT require any mods/plugins. It is also COMPLETELY vanilla and uses command blocks (MCEdit/NBT was not used) so enable CommandBlockInputgamerule (should be true by default).
The map will be fairly regularly updated and i'll be taking any requests/comments for it.
