Map Info

About your character

For years you've been known as a fearless treasure hunter, who would do absolutely anything to find even only a clue to where a new adventure awaits. So when you had received an old map from anonymous source pointing at some pyramid-like structure in the middle of the ocean, without a second thought you started planning your journey to it. Currently with this seemingly golden opportunity slowly rising at the horizon, you're preparing to set your foot on this mighty structure, being completely unaware how dangerous that place actually is.

About your enemy

Taking the brick pyramid as his home, the Illusioner turned it into a maze with various challenges prepared specifically for those who would like to investigate the structure. Despite having a large amout of corridors, none of them apparently reaches the upper floors of the pyramid, where the Illusioner supposedly resides. The reason behind challenging every intruder is unknown, however weird noises coming from near the top of the pyramid have been reported. Notably, none of those who have ever been trapped in there ever returned.

Tips useful during gameplay

Paths


The challenges are grouped by the Paths, with each of them being centered around one theme. The Path concludes with a boss fight and successfully completing it grants more valuable rewards as well as the access to the other Paths.

Suspicious Eyes



Manufactured differently than regular Eyes of Ender, their true purpose remains a mystery. In the pyramid they're located at the end of each challenge and you have to take them in order to progress further.

Fishing

After completing one of the challenges you'll obtain a fishing rod. The pool of items has been reduced to prevent obtaining overpowered items like bows or enchanted books. You can only fish out: cod, salmon, pufferfish, tropical fish and kelp.

Custom resource pack

Included in the pack with the map. I would highly recommend use this small resource pack in order to experience to map to its full desired extent. It contains an animated custom texture of Eye of Ender as well as extended version of 'calm4' soundtrack that functions as a boss fight theme, it replaces 'mellohi'.


The map is designed for a singleplayer experience only. Playing it on multiplayer may produce undesired results.

+1 RetroApo Here's the link to the trailer for the newest version of the map (2.0.2):
https://youtu.be/XLD4wg1VOgk

The description contains the direct download link for the map.

I'm doing this only because none of my requests for updating the map have been answered since February and any kind of communication with the team moderating the site proved to be impossible.

+6 BarnZarn The sunflower riddle has unhelpful information. It says: The sunflower loves only one wall. Second from the left, tops. However, from what left? from the sunflower's? I tried that. Also i assume the other parts means you move 2 blocks to the left and place the lever on the ceiling. what left though?

+2 Nerthing Interesting map definitely not meant for two players, but I still played with two anyways. Wish there was a way to mark off finished areas - had to go to creative to get wool to mark them.

there is something with the guardian level
when i defeated all the guardian nothing appeared in contradiction with the zombie level where when i defeated the giant i got an observing eye and it's head and when i didn't find anything i allowed cheats and targeted all elder guardians for /kill but it detected nothing is that supposed to happen?

Defeating all Guardians will cause the Elder Guardian to spawn. If he didn't spawn then:
1) You changed the difficulty
2) You killed some of Gurdians with commands or they died by other measures than being killed directly by the player

Did you change the difficulty earlier? Because if you turned it into Peaceful, you basically broke the entire map. Sorry guys, but cheating is highly prohibited.

+2 gyno I don't know if you meant it to be like this, but the whole place is a mess and a massive maze. And not a fun one either, just confusing and time consuming when you want to return to the hub or find a place you've been to before. Really, really pulls down the overall quality of the map, because otherwise, it is extremely fun and well designed. Some signs would be appreciated. Just a heads up for anyone looking to play this map

That blaze level is impossible. I found the first, but when you're surrounded with blazes and you don't have a sword, it's just impossible to get the right combination because the blazes also activate colors... >:(

Blazes will not ruin the combination. It doesn't matter if they'll activate any pressure plate or not. Just follow the instruction that you can find on one of the walls.
