Map Info:
The Selection Chambers is a puzzle map for 1.8.4 that works for both SP and MP. This map features 20 unique chambers that have different themes and get increasingly more difficult.

Some of the themes you may encounter are: Secret Codes, Agility, Sequencing, Slider, Reflexes, Crafting, Dyeing, and more!

This map also combines the above themes to create even greater challenges! Can you best them all?

You wake up in a strange room and find a note that tells you that you have been shortlisted for the government's strange 'training program'. You never applied for this, so you wonder how this could've happened.

Fear strikes you as you remember the rumors about the families who didn't comply with the government's plans. You go forward, compelled by fear. Will you ever regain your freedom from these chambers?

Rules, tips, and everything else can be found in the map!

Stay on 1.8+ at all times, and if recording for YT, a link to this page would be appreciated!


Hey guys, I'm happy to say that after all this time, I've found a fix to a HUGE problem with the map. My apologies to all who played the map and the various YouTubers who played the map. I'm sorry it took this long for me to remedy it, but if anyone is still interested, here it is. Thanks!

-Fixed Chamber 17 & 18's Key Problem.

As you might have guessed, this is in preparation for something BIG that's coming. Cheers.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The map is compatible with 1.8.8 ONLY due to JSON issues.

0 Bruno I got stuck in the lava room. Key 1 won't go in the hopper.

0 Flame I found a bug! In the music one if you press all the buttons over and over again, you can solve it because it doesn't stop you when you get something wrong, in the redstone it only placed a block when you get the next note, regardless of if you got it on your first try...

0 Connor I think that the map might be broken because I went into the map and I read the story and the book was in there but there was other supplies and then I read the story and the rules then I clicked start puzzles and it didn't work. could the maker of the map please check that out because I really want to play.

0 Dead Voxel Gaming We did a playthrough of this map on our YouTube channel. I linked the video on the Minecraft Forum page for this map (sorry if that's outdated), and it was a lot of fun! Great job! I think we did something wrong in chamber 18 (the one with the lava) though lol

0 TeddyToastyMC After a tiny bit of cheating and more than an hour of frustration, I finally finished the map! Love all the puzzles EXCEPT for chamber 10. :/ Just couldn't do it even after working at it for half an hour straight.

If anyone is interested, all 4 parts of this map is on our channel TeddyToastyMC!

0 Skye753 Quoting D1amondArcher10:
I'm stuck on Chamber 76254, which says "...Break any blocks placed." I know there's a hopper under the chest, but I have no idea what to put in it.

You have to back to the last level and grab the anvil. Name one of the papers 76254 (use the XP bottles if needed). Then, put the paper in the chest and the pressure plates should be there!
Hope I helped!
Here's a video to watch on the first part of the map...

0 Skye753 The map is very very very well made but I had to re-download and move the map into and out of folders to reset it whenever I messed up (which I did a lot). There was one level with sand and red sand and gravel that the pistons actually broke and eventually moved to far and out of the room. Also, every time I reset the map I have to re-do all of the chambers which is extremely annoying. I suggest that you enable cheats when you enter the game or put buttons in the start room to each chamber.

Cant beat the challenge with the iron ores and used stone pick

mine 3 iron ore, cook it to make iron pickaxe, mine the rest of the ores then make anvil, use sugarcane to make paper, write the code then put in the hopper

2015-06-06 07:15

-2 Help In Chamber 3 I broke the wall to right and ended up in Chamber 4 and I thought it was apart of Chamber 3 so, I took all the stuff and after completing 3 I realized that it cleared the inventory so now I have no idea how to complete 4 without restarting the map
