Map Info


Shrouded is the first Survival Map of its kind; by editing the gamma value in the options text file to a negative number, the player can have a truly unique experience.


  • Controlled mob spawning!
  • Daylight cycle starts when you press “Play!”
  • Multitude of biomes (ranging from the hot-hot Mesas to the cold-cold Snowy Biomes)!
  • Ore Spawns!
  • And much more! Play the map for yourself!


  • 1. Set your gamma to value "-1.0" in the .minecraft “options” text file and restart the game or else this map is rendered useless!
  • 2. You cannot play this map with Optifine or else this map is rendered useless! Use a non-Optifine/Forge/modded launcher.
  • 3. If you make a video series of this map, then please credit me and put the map download in the description.
  • 4. Either set your Render Distance to 2 (Easy Mode) or Max (Hard Mode). Anything in between 2-24 ruins the experience of "true darkness" and becomes useless.
  • 5. Do NOT travel to the Nether yet. This will be added in a later update as complications held me back from completing this.
  • 6. Do NOT utilize Night Vision. You are basically neglecting the challenge.


Coming soon!

This is only version 1.0. Improvements can be made by suggesting them!

0 GoblinSpore You can change the lightmap in Optifine resource pack and also make it pitch black in the dark, so you just install the resource pack in the map's foulder and people don't need to fiddle with options files.

None of the buttons work and we spawn on top of the spawn as well as some swamp.

Just multiplayer support issues?

Yea I think so. This map wasn't meant to be multiplayer compatible (as I literally have no idea how to do it right now).

I tried editing the SMP spawn in McEdit but it only goes within the first 100 blocks of the center of the world. I'd have to make it a schematic and moving it near the center of the world (plus with all the redstone leaving it behind the map will just fail lol). It would need to be a massive overhaul.

Just go into the map area (right in front of the torch and sign) and start from there.

By the way I removed tons of blocks near the map in the upcoming update. Shouldn't get as much lag when you play.

+1 VoreyAddicted So far; it seems that hostile mob spawning is currently broken. I’ll have to edit out the chunks ajacent to the borders . Removing millions and millions of blocks will take a while . I will fix it in a later date as I’m on vacation. Enjoy easy mode while you can! ;)

-1 Reddec85 Awesome! It can be a bit laggy, but all in all, it's another nice twist to an average survival world.

-1 Sofia I really liked this map. I mined a lot of coal and made a thousand torches which I placed all around the map. I have to say, the space given is just perfect and big enough. There were even some times when I was killed by crepers and skeletons. I found my things after though. However, there is just this one thing I didn't like about this map. There were not enough animals. Yes, I found some pigs in the forest. But, a couple of pigs isn't gonna satisfy my hunger for all of the time I spend playing. I also didn't see any sheep. Meaning, I couldn't make a bed. And no bed = monsters during the night. The map was very unique and I enjoyed it. But as I said, not enough animals to properly survive.

0 Interprise I love the idea of this type of survival! I am just starting the map and its like im playing the game for the first time again, except blind :P
It makes you think outside of the box on how to maximize the amount of light you can get and survive the horrors of the dark.
