Map Info

Note: The actual map folder is within another folder when using the adf.ly download link.

I don't like sand. Do you? It's rough and coarse and irritating and it gets everywhere. Your plane, under unknown circumstances, has crashed in the middle of a barren desert and everyone on board has perished. Everyone except for you (and your friends if you play multiplayer).

To stay alive, keep an eye on basic necessities like water, food, shelter, and sleep. You (and your friends) decide to live and find rescue. Start with the plane and see if you can find a radio. Good luck!

[This is my first map I've done with a couple of friends. Thanks for your support!]

Rules & Guidelines

  • Go to sleep only when the sun is below the horizon!
  • Do not kill yourself to reset the water or food meter on purpose.
  • Open iron doors with levers found in the map (do not break down iron doors)
  • Do not climb over the larger sand dunes that act as the border to the map.
  • Play in survival mode and try not to spawn things in.
  • Changing game rules to fit playstyle is fine (keepInventory, mobGriefing, etc…)
  • Play on at least easy difficulty.
  • Play on Minecraft Version 1.10
  • Watch your thirst meter as not drinking water will lead to debuffs.
  • Neglecting sleep with having a negative side effect.
  • If you want a challenge set the gamerule keepInventory to false. [Default=on]
  • Death penalty: Dying 5 times gives you bad luck and dying 10 times give you bad luck and constant hunger. To reset your death counter, eat a golden apple.

Important Settings

  • Set Render Distance to 13 for players (and the server if on multiplayer)
  • Enable command blocks in server.properties
  • Map was made to play with the John Smith Legacy Texture Pack

Objectives

  • Find some snacks and water bottles.
  • Find the radio.
  • Craft some tools.
  • Find a palm tree.
  • Start a farm with whatever seeds are available.
  • Find a way to boost the signal of the radio.
  • Find a generator and collect nine coal.
  • Find rescue.

Challenges

  • Tame a horse. [or Donkey]
  • Explore the desert to look for materials to complete the following challenges.
  • Start a fire.
  • Make cactus green dye.
  • Build your own base with some nice stained windows.
  • Craft an anvil.
  • Make a melon farm.
  • Make a potato farm.
  • Grow a giant mushroom.
  • Make some mushroom stew.
  • Refill the oasis near the abandoned village.
  • Catch a fish of any kind.
  • Catch a leather boot with the fishing rod.
  • Craft a map.
  • Build a barn near your base and breed an animal.
  • Find a diamond.
  • Build a jukebox.
  • Find a music disc to play.
  • Find gold.
  • Craft a clock.
  • Craft a golden apple.
  • Make a glistering melon.
  • Find some nether wart and blaze powder.
  • Craft a healing potion.
  • Craft a healing potion II. [You can find glowstone on the map!]
  • Visit the nether.

+1 BlazeRanger This is sooo much harder than it looks or sounds - but I'm loving it. I have never died so many times in one game.
This map is very well done and I have only discovered a small part of it. I know there must be more and I can't wait to get to it.
Follow my adventures at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCF99-MNBY8&t=21s
This map is definitely 5 out of 5 stars and I highly recommend it to those who think they know what they are doing!

-35 Anon Map is broken badly. The moment you pop in nothing works at all. I've tried everything. Poor quality simply for the fact that how you spawn in is so bad.1/5

How do I get rid of the hunger?, my food bar keeps going down very quickly


Eat. (Map is hard so you will probably need to eat rotten flesh until you can get a wheat/potatoes.

It seems to be working for other people. This might be something on your end. Make sure you are running specifically on Minecraft version 1.10 and that command blocks are enabled if you are playing on a server. Render distance should be set to 13 or higher. I don't have a Mac so I can't tell you for sure if it doesn't work because you are playing on a Mac, but I am sure that isn't the reason. Try deleting the old save and reinstall the map or play it through a server. Good luck!


I done that deleted the old one and went on 1.10 and still didn't work.

the same thing happen to me as I was setting this for my realm with my friends, but I'm using a pc, is there a way to fix this?


Sadly, Minecraft Realms is confined to the latest version. Many maps like these do not work in versions later than the one they are meant for. Due to the recent release of Minecraft 1.11, this map is no longer compatible with realms.

-1 Nexareus Quoting KILLERROBOT:
I started the map and i'm dropped onto a large square with trip wires. It infinity keeps saying "Gamemode updated to survival mode" but nothing else happens. I've tried to manually start the map by looking at a lot of your command blocks but almost all of them that would appear to have the command prompts for starting the map, teleporting me to the spawn, and starting the timers and clocks for the thirst and starvation, etc are all reading errors and invalid response codes. Somewhere along the lines the command blocks must have been redirected in a manner that invalidated all their commands or prompts. I would really love to play the map but without knowing what each command block was supposed to do i can't recreate or manually input the correct response commands. Is there a way you can fix this on your end or does the map have a problem with me using a Mac to run the map? Any help is well appreciated, thanks.

I seem to be stuck in a state of permanent blindness. Eating and drinking don't seem to have an effect and I've only died a couple of times. Any suggestions?


You need to sleep! Not sleeping causes the blindness.

Umm, I have a question. In the rules, it says to only open doors with levers found in the world. I just started, and I was wondering if I can open the pilots' cabin by using the lever on the wall near it?


You can! Just take the lever and move it on over.
