What is it?
ForumJelly has been working on another map after our previous map AberrantWorlds

This map will hopefully completely change your viewpoint of adventure maps and amazing they can be! Furthermore, the map will likely be in 1.16 and up to possibly 5 players. This will be a decently long map so you better have some spare time!

You play the role of a space explorer, a part of an interstellar team, when suddenly you are attacked by an unknown creature and are hurtled towards the mysterious planet known as Proxima. Your job is to venture down into the bowels of the planet and find four missing parts so that you can escape. Along the way, you will learn what truly happened on this planet and why you are in space, to begin with.

Custom Crafting, Items, and Mobs
To give a special twist to this map, we have added unique items which you will be able to craft and pick up from monsters that you kill. Each monster/mob drops something unique, and when you get enough, you can put them together to form a special item to help you on your quest to escape Proxima

While for the most part, we will be using Minecraft’s default mobs, we have retextured them to make the map more unique. Some of these retextures even make fighting them harder! However, each specified area will only contain certain mobs, so to craft items you will need to venture into different areas and hopefully obtain these items. Finally, mobs will spawn naturally so you will not need to destroy those pesky spawners.

Map made for Anyone + Modes
We are attempting to create a map that anyone can get behind.
If you have any ideas to help make this map for everyone, please let us know

Gear System
This map will feature a special system known as the gear system. While your main goal is to find the four missing ship parts that are needed to escape the planet. There are other pickups for those completionists out there, with these gears you are able to allocate them to specific stats in order to make yourself stronger. Each stat has multiple tiers at the expense of more gears, this will allow the player to create unique stat builds as they journey through this planet.

Veteran Mode
Warning: This mode is only for true players. No weaklings allowed. (cough craft)
Players have the option of entering into an alternate mode for an even more intense gameplay experience. This mode will take place in hard difficulty settings rather than normal. You are not allowed Natural Regeneration & will not be provided any in game guides. It is recommended you try this mode only after playing the map once.

The default way to play this adventure map. All players will receive the necessary equipment in order to fully enjoy this map along with the aforementioned gear system.

Metroidvania Motif
The map will follow many tropes related to the Metroidvania genre, but it won't be to a perfect tee. However, some areas will not be fully accessible until you have certain abilities and items. The map won't be truly linear as you will still have a choice of what you want to do first. Though you may be thinking, “what if I want to go back to an area, but I don’t want to walk!” Well, my answer to that is; ever play Xenoblade Chronicles? In the map, you will be provided a Skip Travel book. This means that throughout the map, as you discover important landmarks or areas, you may warp back to them at any time.

Unique Experience + Realms
This map will have what is known as a Custom Resource Pack. Meaning the mobs, items, music, some sound effects, some blocks, etc. will be retextured. This will truly make the map even more interesting. On your journey, you will come across custom bosses, retextured mobs, and more.

Throughout this map, we have been trying to focus on one thing; attempting to get this map onto Realms. As you might know, it is possible for people to submit maps to be added, however, this is a really difficult task, as to get a map onto Realms, the map must be nearly free of bugs and properly balanced.

Please leave as much feedback as possible to help us achieve this goal

I wonder how long this map will take on average

We aren't aiming on making this map super long but it's definitely not super short either.
Our guess is within 3-7 hours for 100% completion but this could be lower.
