-1 Anon I think this map is a great start, but there were a couple parts where I had no idea what to do, and there were a couple parts where the redstone was broken, and I HAD to go into creative mode to get at the things I needed. Honestly, your puzzles were great, and it has a nice concept, I'd just like to see it fixed up a bit, and maybe add a hint system.
Also, there were a couple instances where you had to place buttons/levers on a different block than the originally mentioned obsidian/lime wool, but there were no signs or other notes to say so.

0 Anon Oh, additionally: you cannot sleep in the beds. I had to set my spawn using commands because otherwise, I just suffocated in the wall or ended up outside the intended areas. (In short, beds are obstructed and unusable).

0 Anon Hello! This has the potential to be a great map; however, I am currently stuck on the room with the multiple iron doors, water, boats, fishing rods, and levers. I even went in to Spectator mode to see if I could figure out if I just wasn't doing it correctly. The levers do not open any doors or appear to have any effect whatsoever. I ended up pulling off the one in the ice/furnace room to activate the other doors. The room needs work, and it most definitely needs hints!

I'm stuck pretty early on in the map where you burn the wool, walk down the hall and it leads back to the parkour/glass maze. Help?

+13 imper In the glass maze there is 1 broken glass piece that allows you to jump on top of the maze

2013-06-05 08:30

+1 imper Very Nice Map I got 192 gold nuggets Some of the puzzles were simple but never easy good job!

2013-06-05 08:06

+6 Coolmaps Btw the with the glass maze puzzle you can jump on a chest and walk over the glass. Might want to change that if it's not intended.

2013-06-01 20:13

-2 Coolmaps Quoting WhyDoYouCare?:
I've done some modding (sorry btw) and there is absolutely no way to open that second iron door in the room with the sheep and farm. There is no lime wool to place the lever on and no obsidian.

If you have updated to something higher than when he made the map then it wont because of redstone changes

2013-06-01 20:11

+3 Coolmaps I collected 176 total gold nuggets (how many are there?) and I think this was a very good map 9.5/10

2013-06-01 20:09
