0 Yav It was a lot of fun until I hit the second puzzle in the yellow branch, the one with pillars. I don't know if I should have jump boost like I did in the first puzzle, but I don't and I cannot reach any of the pillars cause my jumps are too short, I checked some walkthroughs on youtube and it confirmed my worries, it's not that I'm missing something, it's just that my jumps are too short. Such a shame, now I'm stuck and cannot complete it :(

+3 KatBug This was an amazing map, incredibly well done :D
The only issues I ran into while playing it was in the Red part, at one point the pusher block wouldnt work anymore, so i just y'know, creative mode it and fixed it, and then when we had to do that stained gl[censored] match tile thing right after, the columns and rows were labelled wrong so it confused me a bit but it wasn't too big of a problem
But yea, other than that, it's an amazing map :D

+2 droonkid The map was one of my favorites. Ever. It was probrobly the best map I've ever played. Even better than diversity. I only encountered one glitch. After finishing the blue room, all through the red room, I kept getting levers like every minute. I got a total of like 126 levers. There were a lot of levers. I didn't know what to do with them and I thought they were part of the game until I had like 20. Then I realized that it was a glitch.

0 Name I did all 3 branches. Yellow was my favorite due to the gravity mechanics. I'm stuck on the last part of the red one though. Hint on the numbers from the signs and how they relate to the buttons?

+1 sigma144 I ran into a similar issue as NuclearPink when playing this map. In the red branch 2nd floor 3rd puzzle, I threw my coal ore and it disappeared without resetting the puzzle. The 3rd floor puzzles also wouldn't work. I eventually figured out this happened because I didn't set my render distance to 16 chunks. Thankfully I was able to fix it and complete the map.
For those having issues/glitches with this map: Be sure to set render distance to 16 chunks as the map directs and use version 1.8.3. If you don't, some parts of the map may not work correctly!
If setting render distance to 16 chunks causes weird rendering glitches (as it did to my computer), go to Video Settings and toggle the "Use VBOs" setting. That seemed to fix it for me.
To the map creator (kwirky): Great job with creating this map! I can tell you put a lot of work into it. It was very unique and I really enjoyed it :)

I LOVE this map! Every puzzle is designed perfectly, but I just ran into a glitch that I can't undo. In the red branch, somehow I managed to drop my reset block (the coal ore) and now I can't get it back. There's no button to undo that :( I tried spawning in a coal ore block and naming it "reset," but the game doesn't accept that. What can I do?


That's strange. I've never run into that during testing. Thanks for letting me know! Anyway, I'm pretty sure that all you have to do is use the command /setblock -130 22 -5 redstone_block. Hopefully that will work :)

I need help with Blue, I cannot for the life of me get the last puzzle. I am playing 1.8.3, so its not any bugs or anything, do you have any tips for getting past the last of the button puzzle? Or maybe upload a video of it? I just really want to play the rest of the map and I can't finish it.


If you need any help, here is a link to the original post on the Minecraft Forums. In the thread, there is a section that gives the solutions to the puzzles.

-SPOILERS AHEAD. YE BE WARNED...-
Loved this map to be honest. Challenges were great, and the secret achievements were awesome to find and see. At first I have to admit, I had no clue how to open the red and blue branches. I eventually figured it out.

Let's see...my favorite branch...it was blue. The mechanics were cool and it made me smile and laugh when I figured out what to do.

I honestly don't hate any of the branches in this map. The most issues I had in the map was probably the yellow branch. Some of the puzzles glitched but I could reset it, so it really wasn't a problem.

The red map was fun and it made me reminded of Pokemon RSE with the puzzles involving the Strength HM involving boulder puzzles. Which made me love this map even more.

The green branch was a fun mechanic to an awesome map with the note block. I have to admit, I had no clue that you needed to switch the note block to other areas (let alone that there were other platforms to go to the other branches) when I first saw it. Then I looked it up like a m[censored]ive newblet.

So all in all, this was a great map, and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

Thank you for making this map. Hats are off to you.


Thanks a lot! ;D

+1 morty this is an amazing map, have been enjoying myself thoroughly despite the occasional bug. this might be because i was playing on 1.8.8 but i've just finished the yellow branch and nothing more is happening? i dont know if it's a bug or if there's something i'm not saying though

This is an AMAZING map! Exactly the type of thing I love. I've only played a few because I've only recently discovered that puzzle maps exist, but this is definitely my favourite and I think it would be very hard to top it~
With other maps I downloaded, I deleted them once I finished them, but I'm keeping this one. =)

Favourite path... let's see... I really loved both Yellow and Red. It's hard to choose between them. I initially had issues with Blue because I was playing on 1.8.8. Learned my lesson.
I found Red the easiest (but still incredibly fun) and I loved the rotating idea for Yellow. Also had some issues in Yellow with platforming up the white pillars, but maybe that was just me.

Also, pre-Green door, on the side where you have to mirror or rotate patterns, you appear to have mixed up the X and Y axis, which caused me to be stumped for a while. (The sign says Y when it's actually X and vice versa.)

All in all, I love this map and I hope I find others like it. Hopefully you have more, even. I'll definitely play it again eventually, once I forget how to solve the puzzles (which will take a while =/) and/or make my friend play it. xD Thanks for the fun! < 3


I'm glad you enjoyed! Just so you know, I'm pretty sure I got my X and Y axes correct.

+1 TheShunter Really awesome map. I love the way you made the puzzles using command blocks. The thing is I completed the two noteblock puzzles and then the yellow path, and now I don't know what to do. Did I do them out of order or was the gl[censored] on the red or blue path supposed to open and something went wrong?

I seem to have been the only one to notice this, but at -146 23 -99 the sign has a typo. It says COLUMN 34 instead of COLUMN #4 . Apart from that, a very fun map! My favorite branch was yellow just for the gravity mechanic. It would have been red, but the grid puzzles became repetitive really quickly (Although this could have been because I could do them easily, but slowly). I didn't see your warnings and played in 1.8.8, but I reckon it could be updated easily. You only need to tweak the title commands and change the lights out puzzle to use pistons pushing redstone blocks onto the command block rather than the dispensers. It would also have been nice to have a was to track achievements, but that's personal preference. I can't wait for more maps like this from you!


Awesome! I fixed the spelling error and took your suggestion. I'm updating the map now.

You need to play in Minecraft version 1.8.3 for it to work. Good luck with the rest :D

If you already put the diamond and emerald into the dispenser, then you looked inside the dispenser and took out the noteblock, then the dispenser should have disappeared.

Take a bit more time to play the map. You might be able to access those areas later.

in the yellow branch, one of the pressure plates dosen't give you any red block so i had to do it myself.


That's really strange. I never ran into that during testing. I'll take a look into it, but data corruption is the most likely answer.

Quoting A. Guy:
This is one of the best maps I've ever played. The amount of detail and command block trickery was insane. But, I ran into a few bugs while playing. The most prominent one was when, during the red or yellow branch (I can't remember), there was a puzzle involving rotating the level and moving blocks to correct positions on a two-dimensional plane. Although a minor inconvenience, I still found it annoying that the wool blocks sometimes fell out of the world. TL;DR Great map, a couple bugs.


Yeah, in the last puzzle of the yellow branch, if you shoot the wool too far to the left or right, it might disappear. I'm not sure what causes this, but there is a sign that says to try to shoot in the middle of the block. Thanks for your feedback. :D

Quoting Awesome but...:
Nice but I got stuck at the begining. After I complete the graph and button/moving wool game what do I do with the emerald and diamond?


*SPOILERS*
In the area with the dispenser between the two puzzle sections, look around a bit to find a clue. You need to place the diamond and emerald correctly into the dispenser. I'll leave it up to you to figure out how. :)
