Hey, I liked your map it was great ^^ ( What I did not liked was that a pig stole my minecart at the very start of the map XD )
Also, I want to help you in a next map, I saw that the mechanism of redstone wasn't very great, and I'm experienced in redstone.
Contact me if you want my help :P

Thanks bro

-7 miner@wesome this map was, ok. I left because of some dead end idk what it was but I couldn't continue
I also didn't like the fact that I had to get the redstone block needed for the elevator.
Thumbs down

-3 Pufferfishman_ The physical map itself was really good though but the mechanics and redstone were very mediocre in my opinion. Also, it seemed like the map was just desperate to use mechanics that didn't really make sense in the situation such as the Slime Block room.

i could not figure out on getting a redstone block for the piston elevator. Also if you don't jump on the piston elevator on time you will fall through. So i needed to use the /give command. That was the only part that frustrated me, but overall it was a really good map

The redstone is hidden in a dark corridor; search more.

Tried the updated version of this map, and well, while the grammar still bothered me a slight bit, everything else got golden. Traps were made better in just about every way I could think of... Except 2, in my opinion.
1. The redstone elevator thing, while it was cool, it doesn't really work unless you set yourself to gamemode 0, not 2, so you can actually place the block, so I had to switch gamemodes. Also usually it glitches and just noclips you through the pistons and blocks, making you fall and (nearly) die. Can be remedied by /gamemode 1, however, which I did... Sorry...

Just return to the pressure plate for set your gamemode to 0. You don't need to use your console command.

Just return to the presure plate for activate the gamemode 0 and you will can place a new block of redstone.

2. There was a parkour thing towards the end, and the jump 2nd from the door just doesn't give any physical time to react to the summoned block at all, unless you're super good at parkour. I can see someone getting very lucky, and landing RIGHT on the edge of the block, but still... give a chance...
New score: 8.5 out of 10.

+6 Tra_kad I'm going to try this again with the latest update (1.3) but my only major issue was that I feel like the English /could/ have been translated better... (I'm [censored]uming French is the dev. teams first language. :/)
Otherwise, I honestly kinda liked the 'old school' feel this map gave, with the signs and lack of command blocks. Just because command blocks add in a whole bunch of new effects and gameplay mechanics, sometimes just plain ol' redstone can do the job just fine, in my opinion.
I also thought some of the traps were WAY too hard, but maybe I'm just stupid and there was some obvious solution. (Specifically the mini water maze area, I could NOT find a way out...)
My presonal rateing: 7.6-8 out of 10.
'Not awesome, but not terrible either, give it a whirl.'

This map was horrible theres nothing that tells you were to go the whole entire map your questioning were to go. Also non of the redstone worked. This is a terrible map, and i hope the dev team fixes it, and for that i give it no stars, completely horrible, dont play it.

I totally agree with the redstone and commands. It really just is bad. Signs for instead of commands was so 1.5, but you could be a little kinder...
