The Impossible Maze by TheAtomBomb
It has come to my attention that lately, map difficulty has plummeted since the days of old.  I aim to change that. Here befalls you a map so challenging that you will beg for an end to it.  
The Story so far:
You used to live a peaceful life.  Always helping around in your little village at the outskirts of the Orlean Forest; but all that changed when Orcs raided you village and left you for dead.  Ever since then you have traveled the land as a nomad, searching for ancient artifacts and hidden treasures.  You now find yourself among the ruins of what looks like a long abandoned temple.  In the middle of the temple is a hatch leading to what you have heard, might be the lost maze of Sinklair, the fabled impossible maze.  Will you go in and conquer the maze? Or will you let a great discovery slip through your fingers?
The Rules are clearly posted as you enter the maze entrance, but just in case, they are as follows...
1.  No Breaking, Placing, or Making blocks/entities etc...
2. Play on peaceful for regular difficulty (still hard)
3. Play on Easy-Hard difficulty for an extra challenge
4. If you do decide to play on Easy+ difficulty, get a creeper explosion nerf.
For this, click here
5. Even though I can't stop you from cheating, you shouldn't as it basically ruins the entire experience, and you will have no honor.
6. Again, I can't stop you, but please try to refrain from mapping out the maze, It is multi-layered and huge, so you'll waste tons of paper
7. Don't rage quit, just play something else for a little bit if you get angry or bored
8. I have made it so that this maze is impossible by just doing the keep your left/right hand on the wall trick by disconnecting and hiding the ladders, so you will just have to wander into the unknown
‚Äč9. Stay committed! It took me a few days to finish (not 24 hours maybe 2-3 hours a day)
DOWNLOAD: v 1.2.5:

Dropbox: https://www.dropbox....ible%20Maze.zip

I expect lots of feedback, positive or negative, I might do another with the same character in a different, more adventure-y map; possibly where he seeks revenge.  I'm not very tech-savvy so leave an answer to the following question in a comment instead of a poll.  Is the map either A.Easy B.Medium  C.Hard  D.Challenging yet fun  D.Really hard  E.Too damn hard  or  F.Super oh my god over the top hard
P.S Problems will arise if you die with all of your torches, so try not to.  But if you do die, you have permission to spawn back 50% of what you lost.

This is the core maze (Externally, it is 12 blocks tall, 201 wide, and 201 long and 100% hand-crafted)

This is where you start, at the Abandoned temple. (blue wool acts as a screen for outside events)

Posted Image
This is basically the entrance to the Lost Maze of Sinklair (BTW pronounced Sin-Clair not Sink-Layer)

Just Just a little bump in the multiple roads of The Maze.

Nobody has the right to copy the contents of this map except what i say you can at the end.  Anyone wishing to feature or show it in any video is welcome to do so, though I strongly suspect that no one will be willing to do a lets play on it as it is huge.  The credit is all mine except for some housing support by Keralis (acknowledged in map).  Peace out and have fun times on this map.

Gah... I keep trying to find a corner so I can do this somewhat methodically (after wandering aimlessly and finding that this is pretty effing big for a maze) and this is a challenge in itself...

There are paths everywhere!

Does anyone else get major lag when you first start?

Couldn't we just hug the left wall?

This seems interesting. I'll check it out. I'm good with mazes, but I will noclip through the walls if it's too hard. About that 100% hand-crafted, I would have used WorldEdit(from SPC Commands) for the ceiling and floor. If you would like to try my map, link.
