Water Dome Survival 4.0

A survival map by joshosh34
This map was inspired by Skyblock and Oceanblock Survival.

This map makes you spawn in a glass dome under water.

The water's surface is covered by stone and bedrock.
So, building on the surface is impossible.
This is your classic survival map, you can do whatever you want,
and have challenges to complete as well.


  • Water Monuments
  • Additional Domes to explore-(currently 8 in Overworld, 1 in Nether)
  • Mine shafts-(slightly more common than vanilla)
  • Lava lakes
  • An Underwater Village of Doom!- Just built, give me feedback!
  • Ores-(normal generation)
  • Strongholds-(7 of them!)
  • Random Effect Machine-(when it activates, it might scare you. There are four bad effects and one good one.)
  • Dropped Rotten Flesh becomes leather!
  • A Better Enderdragon Fight!-Launches fireballs!

This map is multiplayer friendly!(3.2 and up)


  • Build a furnace.
  • Expand the Dome.
  • Make a wheat farm.
  • Make bread.
  • Make a melon farm.
  • Make a pumpkin farm.
  • Make a reed/sugarcane farm.
  • Make a cactus farm.
  • Build a mob spawner. Bonus: One that gives experience points.
  • Cook fish.
  • Find all the Domes in the overworld.
  • Make a red mushroom farm.
  • Make a brown mushroom farm.
  • Make giant red and brown mushrooms.
  • Build a bed.
  • Make various dyes.
  • Make mushroom stew.
  • Build a bookcase.
  • Get an Ender-pearl.
  • Craft a Jack O'lantern.
  • Craft Snow Golems.
  • Craft a Painting.
  • Make a Nether portal.
  • Find the Dome in the Nether
  • Kill a Blaze
  • Go to the End
  • Kill the Ender Dragon
  • Kill a Wither
  • Kill the boss in the Water Village

Stuff I'd like to add later...

  • More effects (hazardous and beneficial) to the Random Effect Machine Done!
  • Somehow fix the Guardians not spawning in their Monuments? Fixed closest FIVE with spawners.
  • Make Rotten Flesh be replaced with leather. Done!
  • Make the Enderdragon shoot fireballs via an invisible Ghast riding it. I have made it! Just needs to be added! DONE!
  • Underwater Villages of doom- so exploration has more priority! Made it, will be in 4.0! DONE!

You could post what you build here, I'm eager to see what you can build!

0 xXLatiosXx I cant play because after minecraft stops responding, it says "Block Placed", from hidden command block outputs. I think it is because im using 1.8.7, but idk. ;-;

+2 Unitoctopus How are you supposed to get anywhere from the original dome? I can't just swim because it is to dark and i drown.

+3 joshosh34 Notice! This map uses dispensers with command blocks! This feature was removed in 1.8.6!
Use 1.8.4 to keep those command blocks working!

+1 Acarnegie The first time the random effect generator activated I almost had a damn heart attack! I love this map though(and I love the option for peaceful too, I play these maps for the exploration not the survival and locked difficulty maps mean I need to use commands, which I hate!)and it's so fun!

+5 MinecraftGamerz I think you should add an island on the surface

2015-05-23 21:56

+2 Firefright I liked the concept of living under water since i first found an ocean, that you for finally making a map i can ACTUALLY enjoy.

2015-05-22 22:25

+2 GameBoy_95492 An Amazing map! love the village!

+6 joshosh34 Quoting Lizzzzz:
Maybe you could add a villager trading system, where you can look in domes for other survivors and trade your resources for them! ^_^

I might do that, might take some time though because I'm thinking about completely redoing the entire thing. I've been playing around with the customized worldtypes, so i might just completely redo it!

2015-05-21 19:20

+7 yeppyz i agree with lizzzzz. you could also build some sunken ships, and put chests in them!

2015-05-21 12:00

+9 Lizzzzz Maybe you could add a villager trading system, where you can look in domes for other survivors and trade your resources for them! ^_^
