Map Info

Minecraft #ProjectZelda is a full Zelda game inside "vanilla" [​1] Minecraft!That means this is no recreation of any existing Zelda game. Instead it has its own overworld, dungeon(s), story, custom mobs & NPCs, etc. I tried my very best to make this the best Zelda game possible inside Minecraft.Minecraft #ProjectZelda is also a map series. Every episode will contain one (main) island and one dungeon. For every episode I will add that new content to the already existing map, so in the end it is one big ocean with several different islands. You will be able to travel from one island to another freely! The story of my Zelda game will "connect" those episodes.This is the first episode of my map. It contains the main island "Lun Island" and one big dungeon, next to some small caves. On Lun Island the home village of Link (the player) is located. If you want to find out more about it... play the map! ;)

Before you download:

-Singleplayer only
-Give credits when sharing the map (using the link of this website)

-Do not use any mods/plugins (exception: Optifine + shader)
-Do not use any additional resource pack
-In case your game crashes after the intro:
  ● Try playing without Optifine
  ● If that doesn't work -> Download the map again and run "/function main:avoid_crash" in chat before entering a name
-It is recommended to use Optifine [​not mandatory, though!]
Recommendations for a better experience:
Use Optifine & Sildur's Vibrant Shader (High) [version 1.21 or newer]
(Download: https://sildurs-shaders.github.io/downloads/)
DO NOT reupload the map or use any content related to this map (datapack, resource pack, etc.) in your own project!

This project means a lot to me! Since I have discovered Zelda series I wanted to make my own Zelda game. So, in 2014 I began building. And now after more than 5 years, more then 800 combined hours of work and several restarts of this project... it's finally done! :DAt least the first episode...
Most of the work during that time can't be seen when playing the map. As I said, I restarted the project several times. But without all the previous, "lost" work this finished map would not have been possible!


[​1] "vanilla" means: no additional mods or plugins are required, it's just a normal world folder

+18 AgentH10 Mate this map was amazing, can't wait for part two, i especially loved the boomerang since it acted just like the Legend of Zelda boomerang. Plz keep up the amazing work cause this was sick.

+33 Hyourin This is awesome and fun and I had a heck of a time.

One thing I did find frustrating was I couldn't find Sturgeon for the LONGEST time. I felt like I talked to every villager, explored the entire place, found every rupee. Maybe some sort of hint in the quest log would be helpful for the future. Other than that, it was fantastic.

+37 Bobo Kobo Hi! The intro is really cool, but I've tried downloading the game four times, twice running an earlier stated "/function main:avoid_cras h" and my game still crashes right after the intro. However, before it crashes is says that I died with 302 levels. I'm not sure what to do, but the game looks really cool and i want to run it without issue. Any tips?

+12 xNYMUSx It's a pretty amazing map, but when i clicked on the shop owner i got stucked in the "shop" and i can't release myself...it's freakin annoying...

Amazing, loved it the whole way through, felt so cool exploring the main island. These was a glitch where the dungeon doors wouldn't open, but otherwise it was great!

Hm... There have benn several reports of that problem recently. So far I wasn't able to reproduce the bug, so I can't fix it. How did you fix it?

2019-12-15 17:25

+15 pininp10 It crashes at the start for some weird reason?

Glad to see this community is still alive, I haven't been on this website for more than a year.

It looks like you worked really hard on this project, I haven't played it yet but it looks amazing!

You should play it. It is amazing. Recommend it to everyone.

+10 ZephyrianPlayz This is by far an excellent map.
Love the scattered caves that were found among the mountain and the zombie village at the top as well.
The side quests (like getting the rope and fabric) was really fun as well.

The script is good, nothing great, but decent enough to instill a sense of adventure.

The MAP is FANTASTIC. Literally everything looks superb, the town, the people (I played with shaders)

It would be an added bonus if there was voice acting, but its an excellent map.
The Combat Mechanics was an added bonus (love the spin attack)

The game wasn't too difficult, but wasn't easy enough to get bored,
Excellent map. I can't wait for another episode. Please continue this series as I really need more episodes like this one :)
Take your time and don't rush it. Good Luck. :)

Cool. After the Instructions and going into the "play" tunnel the game just becomes darkness with no way to proceed or leave?

Just a glitch. It worked fine for me, so I'm pretty sure that if you quit the world, delete it and then reinstall it, it'll work. If not, wait until the map creator talks to you.

Try looking on the walls, there's a hint somewhere

0 XxDragon0710xX This map was AMAZING! I really enjoyed it and cant wait for the next one! (Found all 4 pieces of heart lol)

+6 jawnham BEST map I have ever played. Thank you so much for this experience I am anticipating further update!

+2 Xenith For a 'fan-made' game of Zelda, playing through the first episode was actually more interesting than I thought it would be. -- Props to the creators and the development team (as well as anyone else who worked on this). I can't wait to play more, this is something I am looking forward to playing when the full release/map is out. The story is clean and flushed out in a pristine manner. Making it very great. The only problem that I had, was not knowing where to go when starting out in the 'open world' aspect of it. But that is also a great 'dungeon-crawli ng' experience for the temple/dungeon itself. Once again, good job on the map and look forward to seeing more.

+6 sushiflame on yt how do you pass the cave part??????????? ??????

2019-12-12 13:26

+4 Gules4 It feels like a start of a zelda game for sure!

But you can duel wield the sword and shield, and just spam the spin attack while shielding

+4 cooly1234 Previous maps have had players download the latest updated version with no progress and merge certain files into the previous map so you keep your stuff. EX: Terra restore 2 and chunk restore

+2 Sirvant7 This is an AWESOME map! I can't wait for the next one!

2019-12-09 22:35

+2 Lycan One of the best (if not, then the best) maps I've ever played! I'm a massive Zelda fan and this map is just so brilliantly crafted. Can't wait for the next episode!

+3 NOPEname / creator Quoting TGTelescope:
This is a great game but I have a few recommendations.
1. it would be great if the path to the main village was more defined.
2. I finished the game with only 3 heart pieces and no bottle. It would be great if you could go back when your done and find secrets in the world.
3. having a code system at the end of the game that calculates the amount of money, items and lives you have for the next game so you can continue the game with the same resources.

1. I might change that, no promise since the island is quite small
2. Will be possible with episode 2
3. Is a planned feature
