Map Info

Survival Minecraft was it's most fun for me when it was new. When there were unknown locations to discover - and the rules of the game weren't fully understood. Xiphias was made to give that feeling of discovery back, with a mix of CTM (Complete the Monument) elements to give you a set of goals to achieve.

Xiphias is a world consisting of 3 unique areas, each with their own slightly different rules. Limited resources, modified recipes and drops, custom rewards, and an all new set of Advancements.

Ready to jump in? Everything you need to know to play can be learned in-game. Or if you prefer, read below for some more information about what makes Xiphias different.

Xiphias zif-ē-ǝs

  • 1-2 Players, CTM Adventure
  • Difficulty: 6/10 for Survival Players, 3/10 for Experienced CTM Players
  • Length: Around 4 Hours for Minecraft Version 1.14.2

No matter where on Xiphias you are, there are some 'Quality of Life' changes you'll enjoy. Grinding for materials is not an intended part of this experience.
+ Furnace times have been halved.
+ Ores drop ingots directly (and are affected by Fortune).
+ Most crafting recipes output more items than normal.

When you first visit a location you will be given a Travel Brochure specific to that area. We have limited copies, so we can only give each person one. Please take care to not lose it.

Each location in Xiphias has a few key areas worth exploring. It should be clear just by looking around. But feel free to explore anywhere if that's fun for you. This isn't the infinite world you are used to - each area has limited space. But really, that's part of the charm. If at any point you'd rather be somewhere else, just crouch down and sit sill. We'll bring you back to the Xiphias hub after a few (5) seconds.

To complete this map, you'll want to become best friends with the Advancements screen. Limited crafting is set to true, and not all recipes you know and love will be with you on this adventure.

Check out this helpful note found in the Advancements screen:

Your next best friend will be the Recipe Book. You'll want to check this at the start of your trip to see what you already know how to craft. For any recipe you unlock, it will also be added here.

So now are you ready to jump in? ... What if I told you there was an added recipe for an often overlooked item? (maybe 2) Do squids normally drop this item? I can't remember sometimes with all the changes made.

How about loot chests? I heard kids love these things! Very random - and no micro-transactions.

We hope you decide to visit Xiphias. I know you'll enjoy your stay.

Fellow mappers: Please dig through my files, pull them apart, see how it all works. If there is something you can use for your own project - take it. A nod in my direction would be nice, by not required. There are also a lot of fun things hidden in the files... Most of it won't mean anything to anybody - but maybe that makes it more fun. :)

Attention Speedrunners: Xiphias has a speedrunning page over at Speedrun.com. There are plenty of ways to optimize your route - including careful planning and a fair share of cheese. My best time is around 36 minutes. I'm sure it can be beat! Understanding how the Advancements detect completion will also play a key role. This map will give an accurate play time on each wool placement and a final time for full completion. Please give it a shot and submit your own runs. https://www.speedrun.com/xiphias

Until next time...

-1 Maya The map is amazing but the lack of saturation makes it hard to get anything done.

I have done all advancements except the one where you need to chop 8 birch logs because I didnˇt get the birch sapling from any chest, therefore I don´t have the recipe for orange dye and canˇt finish the map.

I've tried for hours, used up about 6 stacks of torches, and I can't find the cache in the lava cave. Can anyone give me a hint as to where it might be?


The cache is near the entrance, before you enter the lava lake.

is this map multiplayer/realms supported??


You can play co-op. I wouldn't recommend more than 2 players. Setting it up on a server, however, I can't help much.

how do I play this map on Minecraft?


You have to unzip it and move it to your save folder. If you need more help, please do a google search as this is a very standard process so you should be able to find a very detailed guide. Far better than I can do here with just text.

Check the recipe book while in a crafting table. There you can see what you need to craft the dyes.

I will add a mini-guide and update the description above. I can get to it this weekend.

I never got to this, BUT, on my YouTube channel (search for "Brandonn Richmond") you can see my speedrun attempts. There you can see the locations of all the book caches.

Sorry to hear that. I can tell you the Blast Mines Cache is right at the entrance, look for the same concrete powder that you've found hiding the other cache locations. Good luck!


ya i found it a few days back after searching the entirety of the mine multiple times. im happy that i found it but sad for all the years i lost off my life trying to find it

Ok I've been playing for a few days irl and the rabbit is all I need but I can't find it anywhere. I've lit up every inch of Truskeia quite literally and have run into and killed dozen of rabbit that aren't the real one. I've been thinking what if the real one died. What can I do? Do I have to start over? Or have I missed some special place where it's hidden.


There are a few locations in the desert with lamps. When you get near to each location it should spawn a lime glowing outlined rabbit. The rabbit you need should be near a river. You'll just need to touch it - it will be invulnerable, so you can't accidentally kill it.

+2 Brandonn Richmond Quoting Chronicle:
Is there any clues as to where one can find the hidden caches? I'm guessing you have to break into them, as the only one i've found is the monument one, which would mean a lot of digging around huge area to search for mandatory hidden areas

What the heck is the place underneath the lava falls in Hacienda? I went under there and all of a sudden vexes and with skellys were showing me their magic tricks via appearing out of thin air and killing me


The other potion effects offered by completing the other goals should help a ton. Staying on the path will make your time easier. Going off path is punished with spawner spam. The towers with the red glass on top should help protect you from any stray Vexs.

loved the majority of this map except it's so difficult to find the book caches. a friend and i decided to play this whole map in one night and in one sitting because it looked really fun, and while we had a blast we ended up giving up on the orange wool. We got every cache except for the blast mines one :( is there any way you could give hints or make a walkthrough? we had so much fun with the rest of the map but were really bummed that we couldnt finish it because of one book cache. otherwise amazing map!
