Kingdom of the Sky is an Adventure map designed for one or two people. What makes this different from many of the other maps is it actually has Voice over dialog to provide the story elements! It is the first map to ever use Youtube videos to provide the narration.

This is accomplished by playing videos on Youtube when certain checkpoints are reached in the game. Instead of stopping the game to read a long text file the player will simply Alt-Tab to his/her browser and play the video to listen to the audio for the storyline! What's even better than that is as soon as the video starts playing, the player can continue playing the map while the dialog plays in the background.

There is a new Video menu that let's the player easily navigate all the videos. No searching for videos at all!


Story

You are about to leave your house early one morning when a stranger summons you pleading for your help. A great evil has befallen his homeland. You are called upon, you must free him and save the Kingdom of the Sky

Watch the Trailer!

*EXTRA*
To make this or any custom map a more fun experience with less creeper problems I suggest using a creeper Anti grief mod. There is an example of one of these mods below:

Kingdom of the Sky
-Adventure Map for Minecraft

Install

There are two parts that must be installed. The map itself and the texture pack. Although you may be tempted to use your own texture pack, this will cause the map to be partially broken as certain items of interest will not be seen correctly if the wrong texture pack is being used.

1. Copy the folder named "Kingdom of the Sky" into your minecraft saves folder. This can be found by going to
C:/Users/*Your Username*/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft/saves/

2. Copy the texture pack zip file included with this download to the "texturepacks" folder in your minecraft folder.

3. Download the latest MCPatcher
http://www.minecraft.../tag/mcpatcher/

4. Run MCPatcher to update your Minecraft install




Game Rules

1. No breaking blocks of any kind
2. No placing blocks
3. No fire, flint and steel, or TNT
4. You are allowed to craft weapons, armor, food, and torches
5. Play on Normal or Hard
6. You can tame wolves! That's why they are there!
7. You can Enchant your equipment

Difficulty

This map is intended to be hard. I expect players to die several times. To avoid a lot of run back time, make use of the beds you see on the map. No seriously, I am not kidding. This will be one of the most challenging (and also rewarding) maps you will play.


Hidden Chests

There are a large amount of hidden chests in this map. There are no diamonds or other collectables to keep track of. In this game, finding the hidden chests will keep you alive. In fact, there are a few chests that can only be found if the player dies.


YouTube

This map does not use traditional notes to move the story along. Instead you will have story elements in the form of audio from videos on YouTube.

All the other videos are in the form of Video Responses to each preceding video.

While playing, when you come across a sign that says "Watch Video 5" you will Alt-Tab to your browser, click on the next video and as soon as it starts playing, go back into Minecraft. You should not sit and watch the YouTube video as there is no animation, only audio.


Thank you very much, I hope you enjoy the map!

Thanks! I really hope you like it. It is supposed to be hard though, just a fair warning.

When you start the game it will tell you to read "note 1" which is included in the zip file. That will have the link to the first video. Also the READEME file has the link as well.

Hey man, this is fun and all, but it is just WAY WAY too hard. My armor runs out pretty quick, along with my sword, I can't seem to find a crafting table to make a new one. I'm all for a challenge, but this is a little rediculous.

EDIT: I am sending it to Yogscast as we speak. :D

I just played through a bit of it but I couldn't do too much because atm my computer is lag central. :/ However, from my 10-20 mins of playing I would say it's a really good map. I like the video note system, and the map in itself is awesome. I'd just say that there are so many monsters and way too many creepers, they blow everything up.  :SSSS:  But still, a very good map. :)

I used obsidian to "creeper proof" all of the important areas. All redstone and special stuff is protected.

There are a lot of mobs in some of the areas but that is what makes it hard. I may have not given enough items at the start i will test it some more to make sure.

I am uploading a new version. The early game was turning out to be much harder than I had wanted.

*New version is up. A lot more starting equipment, and some extra light sources to prevent so much mob spawning

Nice idea.
I did this as well in two of my older maps and people seem to like it.  (Wonderland and Fear in a Handful of Dust)

I will check this out!

Oh... questions...


If I use your texture pack without the patcher will your map still be playable?

If I use the patcher, is my texture pack stuck as this forever or will I still be able to switch back to default or other custom packs that DON'T need the patcher?
