This map is the sequel to the Temple of Nox adventure map and it is recommended that you play it first.

Map Info:
A harrowing adventure lies behind you and at last Nox has been slain. But as clouded images plague your sleep and a familiar voice taunts you from the darkness, you know Nox has not died. You have accidentally freed the demon from its prison and now Nox threatens to destroy everything. You must embark on a treacherous journey into the depths of the earth and face your greatest challenges. Can you conquer the Hero's Trials and defeat Nox once and for all? Download and play Temple of Nox 2 to find out.

Temple of Nox is a series of adventure maps created by myself and a very small team of people. It takes inspiration from great games such as the Legend of Zelda and Skyrim. While focusing mainly on a single player experience, Temple of Nox 2 can accommodate up to 4 players (maybe more). With that said, we hope you all enjoy the adventure, we spent a lot of time on it and went to great lengths to make it an enjoyable experience.

Featuring:
5 all new levels:
- Explore 5 labyrinthine levels, filled with puzzles to solve and monsters to battle. Find custom items and treasure, and fight challenging bosses in each level on your journey to defeat Nox. These new levels improve greatly on the levels in Temple of Nox with more detailed and open architecture while still retaining that classic feel.

Unique Bosses and Items:
- Hidden in each level are unique items with special abilities that will help you progress forward. Use these items to solve puzzles and defeat the bosses whom you must face at the end of each level and can only be defeated by using the items you find.

Tools and Weapons with Custom Names and Lore:
- Collect weapons, armor, and tools to help you on your quest, each with their own story and attributes. Some items even have unique abilities that are invaluable when used correctly.

Immersive Storyline:
- Delve into the lore of the Temple of Nox world with an immersive storyline presented to you by the characters and their lost books and diaries, along with the lore of the tools and weapons you collect.

Challenging Puzzles:
- Solve puzzles that change from simple to complex as you progress through the levels. Experience new puzzles that rely on custom game mechanics made possible through thousands of command blocks.

Custom Monsters:
- Fight various monsters in the different levels and watch as their strength grows with yours. But be careful, these monsters possess weapons, armor, and abilities that make them dangerous.

3 to 5 Hours of Gameplay:
- This map features hours of entertainment and challenge. If you are looking for a real adventure, this is the map for you. However because of its length, I do advise that you take breaks.

Limited Parkour:
- No parkour skills are needed because there is no necessary parkour in this map. After the backlash over parkour in the "Temple of Nox" I have removed it almost entirely so many more people can enjoy Temple of Nox 2.

Over 4000 Command Blocks:
- No mods are needed because everything in the map is made possible through command blocks and the amazing features of 1.8. These command blocks are responsible for everything from the different items and lore, the custom boss AI, and the unique gameplay mechanics in Temple of Nox 2.

Amazing Music by Kevin MacLeod:
- Enjoy the amazing soundtracks of the talented Kevin MacLeod, who kindly makes his music royalty free. Several of his soundtracks are used throughout Temple of Nox 2, creating an immersive and mysterious atmosphere. The music by Kevin MacLeod is used under a Creative Commons License.

Epic Final Boss Fight with a Dark Twist:
- Confront Nox in an epic finale that requires you to use the items and experience you have gained to defeat the demon. But a seemingly straightforward ending takes an unexpected turn in a dark twist you won't see coming.

Screenshots:

Explore sprawling catacombs deep within the earth.

Enter the Demon Realm where you must defeat Nox!

Bugs:
Because of the magnitude of this project and its ambitious nature, there will undoubtedly be several bugs. I personally have spent the past few weeks alpha testing the map to make sure that it is fully functional but there are probably still more bugs that I have not discovered.

  • If you find a bug, please let me know immediately; I will fix it as soon as it comes to my attention.
  • If you make a youtube video, that helps me greatly because then I can visually see the bugs and it makes it much easier for me to fix them.
  • Keep in mind that most rooms reset when you reenter the level. If you get stuck or something isn't working properly, try reentering the level.
  • Within the readme document included with the map is a list of known bugs and how to solve them. If something goes awry, please check the readme document first, thank you.

* Under no circumstances should a direct link be posted or this map be posted anywhere else without the author's express written consent. *

If you enjoyed the map, tell your friends! If you make a video, leave a link to this page and leave a link to the video in the comments!

Enjoy!

0 AnthonyTom After I beat the elder guardian, it just dropped wet sponge and prismarine shard. Now I'm stuck in the Hero's trial 1st floor, what can I do? D:

+1 Catarina I have just finished playing this map with my boyfriend and wow! There weren't that many bugs, there was only one time when I had to force open a door because we'd complete the puzzle and it wouldn't open the door, like we saw in videos. But otherwise it went pretty smoothly and it was incredible. Great story, great dialogues, and really nice environment overall. The bosses and puzzles were really original and well thought of. I salute you, congrats. We'd love for you to make a 3rd map, that ending just begs for one. We'd surely play it!

0 AlexiaPotter I got back to the surface to defeat Nox, but I arrived in the temple with all the people, but I have no idea what to do next. None of the villagers will talk to me, nor will my Spirit.

Can i play it with my friend?

Yes! This map supports up to 4 players, but I haven't tested it for more however. If you do play multiplayer, it is suggested that you avoid using checkpoints inside the temple and only use the checkpoints within the levels themselves of use the /tp command. Enjoy!

Quoting Bob:
where do you summon the pufferfish bait?????

Throw the puffer fish into the pit in a previous room.The room is flooded with water and instead of having a torch in the center it has a deep pit. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

+1 Lord_Bighead I have released a small update that fixed a few minor bugs, such as some villagers repeating their dialogue without the dialogue finishing first, holes in the floors, and a variety of other small things like that. Thank you all for playing and I hope you enjoy the map!

Killed the boss (nox) but now I'm kinda stuck. There was no ending dialoge and the soul capture thing doenst really explain how I use it...
I wonder if i messed something up.

Actively hold the crystal out when Nox has been defeated and it should trigger the ending dialogue. Then bring it back to the elder.
Quoting Ogre:
The fountain at the the start of the map, i accidentally threw my sword in and it gave me a nugget in return ._.

Err..... Don't do that I guess. Although you can just give yourself a diamond sword if you don't want to restart, it works just the same when you throw the three weapons on their respective altar.
Quoting FireStar0827:
Is there a recommended resource pack for this map? If so where can I download it?

There is no recommended resource pack, the map looks good without it. The pictures on this page are just shaders of the default resource pack. Enjoy!

0 alina juvel there is a hole in the floor in the temple, just to the right when you first enter. It's by the little stone walls. I fell through, went below the map and saw all the redstone switches and such. Had to kill myself to get back to the town. It's just missing a block where I fell though.

I don't know if this was intended, but the minions (silver fish) die immediately after they hit the netherack, and also before you get to the checkpoint wools, you spawn facing the wall, so far though AMAZING map

The silverfish dying is intentional, the amount that can be alive at any one point increases as the boss fight progresses. The checkpoints spawn you facing towards walls because the player's orientation is not changed when being teleported. I will however change the place you get teleported to, if you would like. And I'm glad you're enjoying the map!

Quoting Panda22130:
how do you get past the ice spike part?

You must push a minecart (it appears as a block of ice) through the maze created by the ice spikes. If there is no minecart, I apologize. There is a known bug where sometimes the clocks that respawn the minecart do not update. Try reentering the level or summoning a "MinecartRideab le" and destroying it. That will solve that problem. Enjoy!

+3 SJC_Thunder One bug that I noticed when I first started was that whenever I approached a villager, it would sometimes have the same text appear twice.
What I mean is that the text gets repeated and it looks awkward. This is an easy fix. All you have to do is make it so that text is only displayed once, and if the player wants to reread that text. Well then they should be paying attention to the map, and not screwing around. Just thought this might help a bit. Love the map so far!

So it returns... Again. Out of curiosity, why was the original fourm post for The Temple of Nox 2 removed? Was it because you wanted to fix _everything_ before updating it again and didn't want people to continue talking about bugs you already knew of? I won't lie, I was sincerely frightened you quit mapmaking or something because of all the negativity with the bugs in T.O.N.2.

And yup, I'm downloading this as I type this. HUGE fan of the maps so far. :3


I removed it because I quickly realized I couldn't just hotfix all the bugs I saw in people's youtube videos. There were things fundamentally wrong with the way I set up certain puzzles and the way minecraft responded to it (i.e. minecarts disappearing and then the clocks that respawn them breaking for reasons beyond me). And as the downloads starting climbing into the thousands, I didn't like the idea of thousands of people trying to play a game that didn't work. So I took it down until I was certain it would be playable, fun, and enjoyable. Thank you for the support, Tra_kad, and I hope you enjoy!
