This map requires Minecraft 1.9 - Snapshot 15w50a.

Map Info:
This map is part of the Map Advent Calendar. A special holiday event comprising 24 maps, one everyday until Christmas.

The map is designed to be a mixture of Infinifactory and Human Resource Machine. Your goal is to arrange blocks on a factory floor in such a way that you turn a series of inputs (stacks of presents) into a desired series of outputs. For instance, you might have a system that only sends presents to the output if they are larger than the previous stack, or one that only sends the largest stack of presents.

There are a set of 15 puzzles of more-or-less increasing difficulty, starting at the absolutely easy first puzzle and ending at the fiendishly difficult fifteenth puzzle (I'm not kidding, I wasn't even able to solve that one myself. Had to pass it around a few friends until one of them solved it for me just to prove it was possible).

Should any puzzles prove too difficult for you, there is a built-in hint system which will provide you two hints per puzzle, as well as a free solution if one is required.

Server Info:
The map is designed for singleplayer, but it will work in multiplayer. If you are using it in multiplayer, you will need to add the resource pack to server.properties:

Also, if you are playing on a server, ensure that command blocks and mobs are enabled (as usual).

Really fun map, the puzzles were really hard at the end but I was able to solve them all! I would recommend using a clone command to copy the current solution when you hit test, then when you go back into test mode you could clone the original into the area. That way you wouldn't have to manually reset all the pistons each time you reset.


That's a really good idea, actually. I think I'll do that in the next version!

-1 MasterModr One interesting thing your solution for the last puzzle does not work if the first or second present is a zero. I had that happen and it was just kinda funny :D

+1 BlueCraft Awesome map!!
I must say that I'm really bad at understanding what the instructions say, I managed to do the Insane level without any larger problems, but I couldn't do an easy level. Just me I guess. :)

Amazing map! I am stuck currently, but I won't give up ;)
Maybe you could add a sign, that clears the room? Would help a lot sometimes ;) And (idk if that is possible) make the surrounding stuck on its place so you cannot move it with pistons O.o Sadly I tried that out.....
Again: Great job!

Huh, I didn't even think about that. I'll have to fix that. Thanks!

This is a really interesting concept. In terms of difficulty, the transition wasn't smooth. It went from several very easy, basically-straight-line stuff, then straight into some very difficult stuff very quickly. I actually did the last level all on my own. :D One thing I would like is the ability to rotate certain blocks, like the merge block. Also I feel like the detector could have a bit more functionality. Requiring them to be right next to the piston you're activating really takes up space. You could use redstone for long-range connections. It would also be great if detectors could turn off brakes and start pushing the stack again.

Since you seem to have this concept down pretty good, why not try building something like Manufactoria? It's fairly similar.


I considered a few things like rotated Merge blocks and redstone dust, but ultimately my limit was the nine available hotbar spaces. Redstone's probably the first thing I'll add when no longer limited to those nine blocks.

Amazing Map! I was able to solve the last one (I'm really proud of myself. :D)

I was wondering if you could add a couple more levels? You don't even need to test if they're solvable.
Or you could add some sort of Level Creator/Playground/Whatever.

This is a really great concept, and I'm sad that it was so short. :(


Actually, I do have plans for an expanded version of this map. I kept it to fifteen levels to keep it somewhat short for all the youtubers, but I'm thinking I might make a version with more blocks and more puzzles.

+1 lifeofchrome I don't know why, but on Puzzle 8 I used a comparison block and sent both to the same merge block using symmetrical routes, and when ran on high conveyor speed it didn't work, but low it did.

Make sure you're playing it in 15w50a! If not in that version, the command blocks that make the spawn work don't work.
