Sea of Cinders

Map Info

Welcome to the Sea of Cinders, an inhospitable sea of lava dominated by a towering volcano.

It is your mission to survive in this harsh landscape long enough to complete the monument.

Explore barren islands, towering fortresses, and massive volcanoes in this Sea of Flame inspired CTM map.

This map is built to ease players into the difficulty many expect from a CTM with a difficulty curve that starts off easy and grows to a moderate difficulty as the map progresses.

If you enjoy the map, be sure to check out my others.

Thanks for playing!

0 Nancok As others said, this map is basically hardcore but replacing permadeath with a softlock
Also, creepers around the monument can blow it up, quite the flaw right there

+6 yournamehere Worth playing, with a variety of very challenging areas, but holy HELL you want keepinventory on and the difficulty set to easy. This is not a map for chumps, this is a map for people who think "what if we combined the difficulty of Super Hostile with such crippling resource starvation that one death in the fire that this map is made of effectively means cheat or game over?"

If you modified this map in the future, I'd say more basic level gear (renewable wood/leather), prevent mob spawns at the monument, and have every wool placed give you a resource chest with some gear, an ender pearl, and a 3 minute fire resist potion.

-1 BaconDude Great concept, nice map, but one problem: it's a bit unfair. Every time I die I spawn all the way back at the start and all my loot is like a hundred chunks away. At least have KeepInventory.

+2 Cuddles I agree with some of the other comments: This is actually too hard without cheats.

Gameplay itself is FINE sans cheats, but if you die anywhere but a safe place, you NEED to cheat to continue because wood, food, armour, and basically all survival tools are so scarce that losing any of them is debilitating.

Lost all your armour, or at least the useful (IE non-generic-lea ther) parts? You have to cheat them back in or you can't continue. Same goes for weapons, food, and even torches. Wood is so scarce that torches are difficult to make, so losing a full stack is surprisingly troublesome.

I enjoy a challenge. I was really loving this map and survived several deaths. But then I died to a mob that covered the whole area with fire and thus burned my entire inventory.

I've spent three hours trying to get an item cheat mod working to get those items back.

THAT is how bad losing your inventory is. There's no way to restart like there is in normal minecraft, because there are no trees.

I think this issue could be pretty easily resolved by just giving the player trees. Renewable wood makes it possible to restart from nothing if you have to.

-5 CloudieSiggma Really good and challenging map! It's really difficult (orange wool was pretty f*cking tough, not gonna lie). If you make a CTM map as good as this for 1.13, i will suck your d*ick (if you're a girl, i'll create a d*ck out ouf of thin air for you, and suck it). Seriously though, great job!

+8 tempochange I really enjoyed this mini CTM! The level designs were good and the increasing difficulty was well-balanced. Black wool area was tricky ;) Custom mobs were a nice touch too! Please make more maps for Minecraft 1.12 (or even 1.13)

0 Avri This was a really fun and exciting map, but it too difficult without cheats or starting gear. Nonetheless, I enjoyed playing this map and it was really great for a group of friends! :)

This map doesn't have any rules, no checkpoints, and it's really hard to know what you're doing. 4/10.

LOL that the is point of a CTM map. This is not a adventure map! You are supposed to do one goal (put all the goal on the monument) in any way you see fit.
