Map Info

It’s a survival map, that’s for sure, but it’s unlike any survival map you have ever experienced.

The Rodney Project is simple. You get placed in a room with nothing but a bed and food and all you need to do is maintain your sanity. As I said: Simple, right?

Inspired by a real-life experiment, the Rodney Project involves you as the test subject, spending 9 days (3 real-time hours) in a room with absolutely nothing to do but wait until the door reopens. Will you complete the Rodney Project? Is the test of boredom too much of a struggle for you? In this experiment, your attention span will be tested and maybe, just maybe, you’ll see something you never thought to consider before.

1 Room. 9 Days.

How long can you last?

0 A helpful derp Way to pass the time!
1. Look at the sea lanterns. They're so pretty!
2. Go on Youtube and put on some music for a dance party
3. Spamclick the bed
4. CHEAT and give yourself a painting that you can spamclick on the walls
5. Look at the texture pack
BAI!

I know this is annoying but you spelled "hour" and "absolutely" wrong. Sorry!

Step 1: ESC -> Open in lan -> cheats on -> start LAN-World
Step 2: type into the chat (press t) /scoreboard players set * countdown 100
(You can replace the * with your name, but you don't have to )

You can split it into multiple "episodes": 1h: 3, 30m: 6.

+1 Maxwell You see the problem with this map is it's a waste of time. It's like the 'counting to 10 000 000 in one sitting' videos on YouTube. Why would you do it? It's boring. Not enjoyable whatsoever. So I ask the creator: Why make this map? What are you trying to show the world?

+7 JayQwery Honestly, I Love the random nod to Vsauce. (Yes I Broke the Map And Looked Around). Except, there is no way I would spend anytime do absolutely Nothing (Unless It happened to be For Science of something like that).

I played this for Two minutes before going into creative mode and saying "WHY IN THE WORLD DID I DO THIS" XD


Haha, I can totally relate. (Don't tell anyone I told you this, but I have not actually completely played the map myself for longer than about 2 minutes either). Thank you for taking the time to look at it though!

A really unique and interesting map. Gives a new feel of "survival", but I have some opinions. I want to say that, as this is a good concept, I feel like anyone can make this in just under an hour. All you need is a timer and just wait. There's absolutely nothing to do in the map which, I know that it was the intention, It simply made the map really bland. All I did was click out, wait 2 minutes, and click back in so I wouldn't lose. Seeing how you made a time checker in the map, and which you could only check how long it would take until the godly long map is done, I still knew how long it would take for the map to finish. As much as I like concept of seeing how long a short period of time is, I didn't feel anything but bored. Great otherwise. 3/10


Thanks for the comment, it's much appreciated!
Look, I'm well aware that this map is not something that I deserve much praise over. Ever since I watched a Youtuber Vsauce's video where he did a similar experiment in real life, I was inspired to see if I could recreate it. I completely agree with all of your points and understand that it's not a map you "play" but more of an... "exhibit". Thank you though for taking time to download it and have a look.
