Welcome to The Curse of Starry Isle!

This is an adventure map set on a sprawling island with multiple interesting biomes to explore. It is similarly styled to a CTM map, except it has many unique gameplay mechanics to add to the genre.

The Story:

You begin your adventure in the quaint Starry Village. Quickly, you realise that a curse has fallen upon the island, and you're the hero that's tasked with saving it. Four crystal shards are scattered across the island, and they're protected by various challenges to overcome. It's your job to bring these shards back to the village to unlock the curse. Once the curse is unlocked, a battle must ensue for the fate of the island itself!

The Gameplay:

Each dungeon features a unique challenge to the player. The blue shard's challenges include parkour across platforms that can light up in flames at any moment, to shooting targets that activate bridges. Not to mention fighting off the cursed inhabitants inside.

The challenge of the purple shard takes place inside the nether. The player will be facing custom mobs while being pre-occupied jumping from floating platform to platform.

To get the green shard, the player has to overcome spiders, strays, guardians and slimes in an underground tunnel system. The finale of this challenge is figuring out a logic puzzle to lower the bridge.

Finally, the red shard features a corrupted fortress. The player must lower the electric shield of the fortress, where the depths below are unlocked. Fighting off withers, blazes, and ghasts, a path of stepping stones across lava awaits. Once across, the player has to scale a mountain to get the crystal inside the skull of a giant dragon.

Once all of the shards are collected, a return to Starry Village is in order. Trading the gold nuggets that the player has collected in his adventure with the village's inhabitants can net some great loot. Once geared up, the player places the shards in their rightful place below the village, unlocking the entrance to the curse. Stepping in the portal, a battle ensues with custom mechanics.

After the player defeats the curse, they're free to explore the island in its entirety. Books can be found in the library that lead to hidden treasure if it's desired.

Additional Info:

The map is available on realms too! Here's a blog post featuring it.
The version is 1.12.
Recommended players: 1-6 (This is only a guideline, more players can play with no issues but the loot may be more limited).

I don't think I did the green one correct. I found a horse and a saddle and I think I got in through the exit...
I had some trouble when I had found all the shards to return to the start, but it is a very good map and the island is truly beautiful. Thanks for your work and I hope you will build another map like this.

I really love this map, it's easily the best one I've ever played. The entire experience really makes it feel like you're playing a completely different game, however, when trying to complete the green shard dungeon, in the middle of the counterweight puzzle, the "raise the counterweight" pressure plate disappeared. After this, I got the coordinates to the adventure mode command block to try and replace the pressure plate in creative. Sadly, once I changed this, Whenever I tried to go back into adventure mode to complete the map the correct way, I would instantly die. Is there any fix to this?

I just finished it, and now I want to go around in creative. Can someone give me the coordinates for the command block that's keeping me in adventure.

In the description you have the green and blue shards swapped - blue is the one with the parkour and green is the one in the tunnels.
