Short Description:

Minecraft Version: 1.17.1

Gamemode: Adventure (Replayable Horde PvE map)

Players: 1-4 recommended, map supports any number of players

Must be in adventure mode and on any difficulty except peaceful (default is normal)

Long Description:

Warp into an arena consisting of a predetermined layout of random block rooms selected in the pregame lobby. Play by yourself or with friends. Kill mobs for better loot and kill enough mobs to spawn the final boss. As you and your team become more powerful, so do your enemies. The block rooms making up the mapspace can be randomized before each round or be kept the same as the previous round. Most Importantly, every 10 kills more mobs will spawn into the mapspace in random spots and existing mobs that are similar to the new ones will teleport to a random spot.

As of v1.1.1 there are:
  • 42 block rooms
  • 3 mapspace layouts
  • 1 wave type

Block rooms are 14x14 squares that are combined in a random order to create the map space in which the game takes place. Every block room can be seen and explored in the pregame lobby.

Map layouts are selected by the players before starting a round. Map layouts determine how block rooms are placed on the grid to generate the map space. Examples include 4x4 and pitch fork.

Wave types are what determine the mobs that will spawn throughout a given round. Each one has a certain theme that can be seen as a round progresses. An example is Overworld Night which consists of some of the common mobs found at night in normal Minecraft.
