Map Info

So, this is my first puzzle/adventure map, and I decided to make it really professional this time. I hope it's a good one, I spent a LOT of hours thinking and building, but here it is!

Make sure you read all the rules before starting, otherwise you will face annoying surprises.

The Story

You are some sort of a night guard, who's only job is to NOT press a button. While that would be a very easy job, the night somehow doesn't pass. To make it pass, you have to search around the museum to find something called a "Frozen Clock" that somehow stops time.

This takes more and more effort, but eventually, that isn't enough anymore, and the button will become very attractive... Can you control your curiosity and fucos, pardon, focus on your job?

The Important Rules

  • Gamemode 2, Difficulty 0 (no PvE), render distance exactly 8, brightness moody (important).
  • NOT multiplayer friendly. Please, don't even try...
  • Can't stress this enough: don't put ANY items in chests! You will need things from night A in night B, and you cannot go back!
  • Also important: don't lose anything! Don't throw items in lava (unless specifically told), on the ground, or all at the same time in a thing! You can get stuck if you recklessly put everything everywhere!
  • Last: grab always everything! You will need 1 lever for the current night, and 1 for the next one, for example. However, I NEVER will put a chest somewhere with ONLY an item in it that you only need for the next night(s).

The Less Important Hints

  • Pressing the Hint button is always necessary for starting or completing the night. Press it often to see or there's anything new!
  • You may place items in your house. I secured and sealed it all, so you absolutely can't get stuck with that.
  • If you think you are stuck, you are not! Unless you ignored the rules, you cannot get stuck! Really!
  • Look in every place. Have I been here? There? Can I break this? What do I have to do to get this? Although the puzzles never get too hard, it can be quite annoying!
  • Following the Dialogue will help you in your quest, and in the books are more important stuff than you might think!
  • Don't scream, laugh, sneeze, or even talk while playing this. It's a museum, c'mon! (Just kidding, have fun guys! Leave problems in the comments!)

+2 Faith This is my first time reviewing, so you know it's gotta be a good map. Seriously, I had a lot of fun. The subtle "creepy" vibe without being outright scary was really nice (except the "jumpscare", which was my favorite :).. ). It added a lot to the ambiance. Just so in depth and really well thought out, I enjoyed it a lot. Totally recommend. Great job!

the Axe or "Surprise :)" wont show up... I got the book inside, and after that, nothing showed up..

Had the same problem. Figured i could get away with just destroying any stairs i found with creative but got stuck on the machine part due to the item trading not working.

Stuck in the Fire level, I accidentally threw the diary in the lava and now it won't do anything.
PS: I already threw the Cursed Book into the Sacred Fire, as instructed by Please Read

Glitch discovered, needs proof: You can vel layteuse the Cursed Book to enchant your shovel later on.

0 Maxwell I found that setting the brightness at moody as instructed makes the map really hard to see. You should set the brightness at at least 20% to make it more enjoyable.

CHEATER! Well, at the air shaft in the air exhibition I also just flew up to the platform in creative mode >:)

You should be in front of thr air shaft button and klick it, if you do it you will get levitation effect.
