Welcome to the...

Hey guys. I'm Draco Rogue. Welcome to my collection of CTM Maps!

I love the concept of CTM Maps. Vechs, the mastermind behind it all, inspired many to create their own. Visit the Super Hostile Forums by clicking here. My maps will probably never be as hard as Vechs’, as I will be focusing more on aesthetics of the areas, and making them unique.  But this doesn't mean my maps won't be have equally as great of gameplay. I wanted to make my maps by using a different approach than most map makers. I won't use too many devious traps, I want you to gaze at the wonderful landscapes most of the time.

-:- Rules -:-

1. Find and complete the Elemental Shrine (Victory Monument).
2. Use the Wool found in chests for the Monument. Do not craft the wool, or steal them from sheep or spiders.
3. Always play on Easy or higher difficulty.
4. Survive in any way you can. This includes growing food, killing mobs, breaking blocks, crafting. Pretty much anything you can do in normal Minecraft!
5. Don’t leave the boundaries of the map.
6. Do not use Mods that ruin gameplay. Graphic or performance tweaks like Optifine are allowed.
7. Please do not create a Nether Portal, craft enderchests or craft invisibility potions.
8. Have fun, and post about your progress and what your thoughts are! I love reading your feedback.

-:- Map Styles -:-

Open World - The World is Open. Explore anywhere you want. Dungeons will be spread out throughout the land.

Linear-Branching - A linear path that eventually branches out into more paths. You will need to take all paths to progress.

Open-Branching - A combination of Linear Branching and Open World. Mainly uses teleporters in these maps. Lands of Desire II is a great example of how this works.

-:- Map Difficulties -:-

Maps can often have two difficulties. Example, Easy-Medium.

Easy - These maps will provide a rather peaceful adventure for even CTM Beginners. A lot of resources, equipment and overall not too hard. Good for CTM Veterans too, if they want a break from the usual Hard difficulty maps.

Medium - The average difficulty. A step up from Easy, although still behind Hard. More spawners, less resources and equipment.

Hard - These are made with a devious mind, thinking of ways to cause intense pressure to the player, and keep you on your toes. You will need to look out for resources, as supplies are scarce.

Anyone want to tell me a tip for 'kickstarting' this thread?

Oh, oh! I know!

Make screenshots easier to access, because as they are right now, you'll only find them if you read well. Some people will want a first impression that hits and sells the map. Try taking the most awesome screenshot you can, make it all neat, then post it near the top of the thread for all to see! That's bound to attract more players - I know it'd work on me. Also, although your formatting is pretty solid, it could still use some work. Maybe a bit more fonts and effects to the text could make it easier to read, and a table of contents at the beginning would help look around! That said, I still never got how to make a table of contents in which clicking the title of the sub-section brings you to said-sub-section. Tell me if you find out.

Otherwise, seems neat to me! It'll go better once you've got some playthroughs to showcase, or even a trailer. I do like the idea of banners, though! Never did that myself, but maybe I should have. After all, if they look cool like that, some people might enjoy spreading them... Publicity is often a strong tool, in a place like this! :D

Hehe. Weird, because when I tested out this map myself (In 1.2.5), I only died once or twice in the Town of Silence. Then again I was well prepared. Posted Image

It's not a huge map. All (Most) areas / dungeons are close together.
