Map Info

Castaway is a hardcore survival map, with elements of survival island, in a different way.

You find yourself stranded, on your crashed ship, in the middle of the ocean, with very few resources to start off with.

Underground, are dungeons and hidden treasure with stuff you need to survive.

Will you manage to use your emergency supplies, to defeat the dungeon, and gain your treasure? There are a total of 5 treasures underground.


  • No cheated items, x-ray, or other hack
  • Don't try and find land
  • Don't exploit the map
  • No suicides to fill up the hunger bar
  • Play on at least Normal difficulty
  • Conquer the dungeon
  • Find all 5 underground treasures
  • Repair your boat
  • Mine 5 diamond ore
  • Make an anvil
  • Build a farm
  • Make a house
  • Turn the dungeon to a mob farm
Have fun!

+4 Roxas Five seconds into the map was when I experienced the first catastrophe. I knocked the emergency fishing pole out from its place on the wall and, of course, it hopped right out of place..into a hole in the ship..started sinking into the sea..all the way to the can imagine how loudly I cussed.

+3 Atanos loved it, especially the start. The dungeons were difficult, too difficult for me, but that's just my own lack of skill. Thoroughly enjoyed, thanks!

+2 TM Thank you for a really great adventure. I did all the achievements except make an anvil, though I had enough iron to do so. However, I played on 'Easy' ... I thought it was challenging enough! Very fun. All the treasures were cool, and great choice of enchantments.

+6 CastleDesignerJK Great map, although it was very hard I eventually found the Farmers Treasure, but before that, cause my computer doesn't have sound (yet) I hit a Silverfish Rock and got the crap scared out of me!

-11 womblue Epic! this map is very well put together and i'm enjoying it immensly! One change i would consider is to take the bedrock away from the spawners so there is a way to stop them or make a mob farm.

*spoiler alert*

i have found the farmers treasure and the 8-diamond vein next to the coal one. I am still playing this map though so don't post hundreds of replies saying how bad i'm doing

-4 ep1cn00b800 When i first started mining down i was hearing all enderman and zombie noises, then i was freakin out like crazy because i thought my little ship was being over run (oh by the way im using my ship for wood and the sail for wool and a home) then i kept digging down then i saw alot of mobs. so i went back up and got some sand to drown the mobs in. then enderman started to pick them up and some got mad at me.
