Map Info:
The concept is simple - there are 7 different cube biomes, each containing hidden chests filled with goodies and two obsidian blocks that will allow you to build the Portal to travel to Hell and destroy the Book of the Damned. Each cube biome has a different danger level, so be careful when adventuring into one. Once you feel very well prepared, you may embark into your final journey into Hell. For more information, read the provided Quest book in the chest.

PLEASE read the IMPORTANT NOTICES at the bottom of the description.

The map was designed mostly for one player as the resources are scarce, and must be searched thoroughly in all the biomes. As a word of advice, it is recommended that you go exploring during daytime.

Cube Survival has been updated on 2 December 2013. The updated version comes with a few challenges, as they follow:

  • build yourself a cozy shelter in a cube at your choice;
  • create a cobblestone generator;
  • own a full set of diamond armor;
  • find the hidden cake in one of the cubes;
  • gain obsidian by yourself;
  • build an enchantment table and brewing stand;
  • enchant an item of your choice and brew a drink of your choice;
  • create a wheat, melon and sugar cane farm.

CHANGELOG (thanks everyone for the feedback so I could make the map better):

  • reduced the number of enchanted apples;
  • removed pig spawner from the first cube;
  • adjusted the difficulty of the second cube;
  • diamonds removed from the first cube;
  • fixed the witch spawning;
  • removed some of the emergnecy supplies from nether
  • added fire in nether;
  • added many more spawners in nether because some players had no mobs in nether;
  • reworked the Book hall;
  • added challenges;

Overall, the game should be a bit harder now, but still playable.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you plan on playing in multiplayer YOU MUST DELETE your old world_nether, otherwise the Hell on this map will not work. Also, the Portal MUST be built in the Portal island, located just ahead of the Forest biome, the one you spawn in. The spawn is set in the Forest biome (the one containing 3 trees and many signs). If you happen to spawn in the wrong location, either find the forest biome or kill yourself to spawn in the correct location. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE2: If the game happens to be creative when loading it for the first time, please press Esc on the keyboard and select OPEN TO LAN. From there, choose survival and save the settings.

I hope you'll enjoy the map!

This map was made in Minecraft 1.7, to avoid any possible bugs while playing, it's best to play on the same client version. You can change it in the "Profile Editor" of the Minecraft Launcher.

My god the nether was impossible. Something happened to the spawn rates where the mobs JUST KEPT COMING. Took me half an hour to get them down to a manageable size and used god apples to take out the spawners, but my god there were so many. I watched a video on it and they didn't have nearly as many. But otherwise the map was amazing.

Great map and really fun but you should add something to destroy the book in and it give you a book that you read for an ending.

We're doing a Co-op Series on it right now but the water chest is very hard to find. Any hints? Any good work on a fantastic map. We won't to do a survival map and we tried 10 different maps before this one and none of the others worked out,

The end was so much harder than expected, Though it might have been my fault for standing there for so long before running through.. oh well! Loved it the whole way :)

My full series!

Nice map although a little too simple for my liking.

I love the concept, which is why I downloaded the map in the first place, but the positions of the chests were a little too predictable, especially after finding the first one, perhaps you could have changed up the locations a little, or maybe even added small puzzles?

However this light hearted change of pace to other maps was admittedly quite refreshing.

However, the ending, although spectacular, was a little flawed in the fact it was nigh-on impossible to even get out of the starting room even on normal difficulty due to the mass of mobs - even with full diamond and enchanted armor!

A very nice map however, and relatively unique too. Well done!
