There is not a single thing I don't like about this.

Do I extract all of the contents in the manual install or just the world folder?

If you already have minecraft installed, then i'd say just extract the world folder into your appdata/.minecraft folder

Just make sure that the world # isn't already being used by you for 1 of your own worlds.

play away  

BTW AWESOME WORLD !!  :P

Well of course I know how to add a world. This is different because it has multiple programs and such in it.
So now Ima go test it.

I guess that the spawn points have passwords you can enter somewhere to change your spawn location...

I got the thing to work, but I totally failed, and fell into the void with all the starting equipment...so I'm recopying the save so I can start fresh  :Zombie:

Anyways, yeah, it IS amazing, I wish I could make something this awesome, but my attention span is too shor-oooohhhh shiny!  :(

I already have a story from this map  :P

Of course, the main character is Little Mr. Creeper.

So I was hiding inside one of the treasure houses for the night, not wanting to deal with monsters while adventuring, when I check on my window, and see this:

Ick!  Well I wait until morning, then kill the monster, then a group of skeletons that for some reason didn't get burnt up ambush me, though I manage to fight them off.  I'm gloating about my victory, when suddenly I hear a "Ssssssssss" and I get sploded...
I'm not too upset though because I guess I got back fast enough to get my stuff, yay!  Here's the damage from Mr. Creeper.

It feels like the world is so holy I can barely get myself to destroy any blocks XD
EDIT: OH FOR ****S SAKE
I totally underestimated the way gravel falls when you put a block by it.
