Level 37 : Artisan Spider Rider

Sky Islands
Welcome to Sky Islands! First of all: This isn't a SkyBlock map or anything. It's something completely different: Its a very difficult survival map that mixes tricky puzzles, parkour stages and mob combat!
There are 20 sky islands, connected with jump'n'run stages, but you aren't allowed to enter the parkour part to the next island before you finished all 3 quests on the island! These quests include finding things, crafting things, fighting mobs, puzzles and jumps.

You can't break blocks until you found a tool allowing it. On your journey, you will find all kinds of food, weapons, armor and more things so you are able to survive until the end!

-Many hours of playing time!
-Over 20 Islands to do more than 60 tricky quests on!
-Many secret things to loot!
-Pretty difficult gameplay! (Only for advanced players!)
-Gamerules are set! (e.g. no inventory loss and no creeper destruction)

-Much more!

This map doesn't need any mods (but recommends Optifine) and everything you need is written down on the map, for example the rules you have to follow. You need Minecraft Version 1.7.2 or higher for it to work properly. (Works for 1.8)

It was released 2013-03-06 and got and still getting updates over and over.

I'm happy about every comment! Please report any bugs or mistakes and post every suggestion you have to improve the map! Helpful support or a letsplay you post in the comments, will make you get credited!)

And...have fun! :D

DO NOT upload my map ANYWHERE else. If you see my map uploaded anywhere else, please report it to me.
DO NOT share the mediafire link! If you want to share this map, share the link to the THIS site!
P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

Additional Notes

-Everyone leaving comments/criticism or supporting the project in any other way

Questions on Difficulty, Multiplayer and Letsplaying
How hard is it?
Very hard. It starts easy, but gets hard soon. Not just hard jumps, also VERY tricky puzzles where you need more than standard minecraft knowledge.

Can i play with my friend(s)?
It is multiplayer compatible, but it might get difficult at some parts. However, you can.

Can i do a lets play or other video about this map?
Yes, of course you can. But if you do so, please post a link in your video description and give credit. And if you want, a youtube link into the comments here :)

What you can do to help me
-Leaving comments and constructive criticsm (most important!)
-Noticing me about grammatical mistakes
-Doing videos on it
-Giving this project a diamond (only if you liked it!)
Progress: 100% Complete

I have sownloaded this but I am not sure how to convert it to a file to place in my saves folder. Please help D:

You need Winrar to open the .zip file you get by downloading, and the file in there is the save file to put in your saves folder :)
The only problem that i've had with the map is that any time I'm suppsed to kill specific mobs for special drops they aren't anywhere on the island and I can only find spawners for other mobs. To get past this I have to cheat. I have been on hard for the entire map (no peaceful).

Okay, i thought everywhere where you got to kill mobs, i built a spawner for the specific mob. Hmm...Could you tell me what island(s) had that problem? Maybe the spawners are broken :/
I can't find any zombies to get zombie hearts from on one of the first ones then getting poison arrows on the water one (thinking off the top of my head right now) and just generally most that require you to kill a mob. There are working creeper, spider, pigmen, magma cube, and endermen spawners, but that's about it. 

Ps: Besides this issue with the mobs it's a very fun map :)

That's wierd. I just checked with newest Minecraft version and it works. Maybe you can check what mob is turning inside the spawner? If there are pigs, the spawners are broken. If there are the specific mobs, but they just dont spawn, then... do you have any mods? If yes, maybe a mod broke the spawners. Or is there any other thing that broke the map (Maybe it didnt load properly once so the map couldnt stop properly)? Maybe it works if you get a new map copy out of the zip (or redownload)

The thing is I edited the mob spawners, so they have colored names etc., but it normally works. I will try helping you, but I'm not an expert at these things like Minecraft bugs :/
Apart from that, sorry for the late response and thanks :)
May i please record and post im new and want to start a channel but i could not find the right map. i think now i can start if i have permission...... i will leave a link if i post the video thanks

Wow! Cool map. Did you use MCedit and can I do a Let's Play of this? (It may not be the best though.)
  • Minecave
  • Level 37
  • Artisan Spider Rider
  • June 17, 2013, 9:37 am
I didnt use MCEdit much, but for some planets or things I did and in the newer versions also filters. I try to use the possibilities of MCEdit even more in future updates!
And of course you can make a Letsplay, be sure to put a link here ;)
Such an awsome map!
I'm thinking about doing a let's play of it on YouYube. Do I have your permission? Of course credit will be given!

Why you say you're bad? You aren't, and that is the easy beginning, it will get harder...
And please don't waste 5 minutes by trolling with spawn eggs or TNT towers (or your friend) as its pretty annoying..just a note. Not too bad.

  • March 6, 2013, 3:50 am
Thank you very, very much! I will release it now in its current state and of course i will also credit you!
But did you really manage all quests? There were some where i thought, this may be too hard or noone will find this...If you did, wow!
  • skipper587
  • Level 32
  • Artisan Dragon
  • March 6, 2013, 3:55 am
There were some that were crazy hard. The firework rocket (because of gunpowder and dye), the island where you had to dig your way through...I'd also recommend enchanting every tool you give to the player with the highest level unbreaking enchantment, but that's a minor inconvienience.

Great work mate.
  • Minecave
  • Level 37
  • Artisan Spider Rider
  • March 6, 2013, 5:26 am
Yeah i thought skeleton bones and bone meal would be an easy thing, but i will change that you can find gunpowder and dye. I don't know what you mean with island where you had to dig your way through (the ice one?)...and i will also do the tip with the unbreaking enchantment.
Thanks for everything.
P.S. You can do the LP now, if you want. :)

  • March 6, 2013, 6:13 am
Ah, i know what you mean...its a mistake from my side and i'll fix it within the next update. It says you're only allowed to take 1 item from every chest but the chest above where you could find a potion and a ladder i wanted you could also take the ladder but that would be against the rules, so its my fault, sorry. With the ladder you could do the way up to the top of the planet...

Okay, thats even better ;)
Just one more question, please...do you use Optifine?
Because it looks far better with it and the correct settings but you don't have to use it if you don't want to.
