Map Info

Ancient Worlds is a classic minecraft adventure/puzzle. Your task is simple: Visit each area and activate the four Crystals: Water, Forest, Fire and Ice.

You have to find equipment by doing various challenges, and you can buy weapons and armor with currency you find in hidden chests.


Multiple hours of play time

30% challenges (maze, boat race, find redstone pieces,...)
30% riddles
30% combat
10% parkour (pretty simple)

  • Currency that can be found in hidden chests and can be used to buy weapons, armor, potions etc.
  • Checkpoints that you can activate if you found a checkpoint lever.
  • Return to any activated checkpoint for a small cost.
  • 5 easter eggs to collect (very difficult to find - but not impossible)

Difficulty System

Besides changing the standard minecraft difficulty, it will also effect the amount of hints given. Hard means no objectives and no hints, easy means plenty of objectives and hints. Either way the difficulty will ramp up towards the end.


Halls Of Sand

The Halls of Sand are twenty halls made of Sandstone. Each hall is unique, containing something different of interest. Your goal is to find the treasure room, where a special tool is hidden that you will need on your Journey. Watch out for riddles and powerful monsters too.

Sinister Forest
The Sinister Forest is where the Forest Crystal resides in. You will need the tool from the Halls of Sand to reach it. Your orientation will be tested as you reach the treetops. Don't fall down and don't blow up...

Desert Depths
The Desert Depths consist of multiple lakes and the Water Temple with the Water Crystal deep below the Halls of Sand. Strong enemies and difficult trails await you here. Also don't forget to hold your breath...

Snow Dome
The Snow Dome is a dome full of snow. Your navigational skills will be challenged as you dig through it. You will need something hot to do so. Don't get surprised by the icecold enemies here as you search for the Ice Crystal.

Temple Trials
The Temple Trails are the only way to access the Magma Caverns. Many puzzles await you here.

Magma Caverns
The Magma Caverns is where the Fire Crystal resides and is accessed through the Temple Trials. The hardest challenges of the Ancient Worlds are sure to turn up the heat. Jumping, thinking, fighting, floating,... every skill is tested here a final time.


- Don't use external tools to hack the map
- Don't throw away important stuff

Everything else is set up in such a way that you can only do things that you are supposed to do. I have done a lot of runs to check if everything works.

Player Count

The map is balanced for one player but you can play with more too. As a result you might have to share weapons and food. However you can buy additional equipment for your friends when you have unlocked the first shop.

If you play with more than one player I recommend increasing the difficulty.

+5 Emily I did the boat time trial successfully after hours of trying and then it got rid of the boat anyways. So now I'm back to trying for hours to get it perfect. If this could please be fixed this trial is way too hard.

+2 Little Wolf Hi! Me and my group plaed this game and wanted to help with some feedback, so here i go!

-Currency and Shop system, really cool.
-Cool areas to explore, visually really appreciated.
-Requirements to unlock new areas, makes going back to old areas another adventure!
-Mobs visual and items
-The magma area riddle part, really well done!
-Commands and switches, there was always a new thing that surprised us! Or a new mechanism and stuff.
-The all feel about the adventure was satisfying.
-The teleport system and checkpoints
-First and probably the most important: the snow area!!! Is really really frustrating digging the snow, and since we didn't go to the exit early we literally dug for a LOT of time trying to figure out where to go. Solutions could be a faster dig strenght to the tool you need to remove the snow, or a more clear path there.
-We played in 4 in normal mode, but the area with guardians was really tough, i think there are really too strong to be killed (for a single player balanced map) and should be weakened, or given to the player better tools to kill them. Cos the oxigen makes really hard to fight properly.
-In the same area, some switches didn't work asap, (they keystones), maybe that should be checked or there was a particular thing we had to do.
-Parkour, not that i didn't like it, but some of us aren't particularly pros, and in some part it wasn't really "easy", even for ur experienced members.

Really good experience, 4/5 :)

0 MrSefaa Hey man, I played the map for a few hours just trying to find the water crystal in the Halls of Sand. Where is it ?! I may be quite stupid. I also used xrays to see if there was any other chests I missed, but there were none. Ples help. I am going to go insane if I don't find out how to actually do the map.

0 Martin Hi, I need to help with the puzzle in the lava cave, quiz 4 folding swords. I have absolutely no idea what to do. thank you for answer

2020-03-15 14:47

0 R0vann My score was 1022 with 2x multiplier, 11 deaths, and 2559 currency. Thanks for making an amazing map

2020-03-13 02:05

0 Evelyn This was a really amazing map! I had to go into creative mode to get through the sword quiz, but besides that, this map was an absolute fantastic experience!

2020-03-08 00:42

0 Kepp The adventure was actually pretty nice, but one problem is that in the fire quiz, one of the questions doesn't work: the swords puzzle has the bottom center frame broken, I looked behind the circuits and the redstone placement made so that as soon as the redstone torch was put out, the repeater would turn on, making the frame unsolvable in any position
Also in the emerald chamber of the fire temple there is a small block missing in the wall

But anyway thank you for making this! Got 1269 points on hard mode :)

0 Anonymus I love this!
Its like a massive escape room!

2020-03-07 10:06

+1 seth I have found a error in a bit of red stone making a puzzle unsolvable because the distances are the same 8 redstone from the comparator I went into mind challenges and found the hint then after I put what I believed the solution to be correct went spectator and saw it pretty much was but it was uncompleteable due to the error I mentioned.

+1 Hvgs Hi there, the resource pack link does not work, I recommend using this link instead :

And then click 1.13+ to download the pack!

2020-03-03 21:53

+1 Mr. Bastian 10/10 Very well made and it's really really fun. Plenty of fun secrets and although I haven't even gone into the first are (Halls Of Sand) I'm still 100% sure this will be amazing. I recommend it to people who love adventure, secrets, story, different worlds, pseudo-Metroidv anias, action and - of course - having fun, Minecraft and games-and-stuff where you just get a bunch of items and do synergies and strategies and just beat everything. 10/10 5 Stars 100% Rating - couldn't recommend it enough. =)
