†Tale of the Nomads†



Greetings! Welcome to the first ever Adventure Map created by the
~Insanity Cabin~ Team, consisting of Ksafin, OboeDude, and Lotsacake.


The Story:
Many years ago, a group of nomads settled this land. They were a civilization of many wonders and glories. However, in a bloody war, they met their end... All that is left of them is the statue by this village. You have decided to unlock its secrets. Tales tell that within the monument lie countless riches. Your grandfather has said that the statue will unlock with three blocks. 1. A block the color of the sun. 2. A block the color of the Sea. 3. A block the color of the blood of men. Place thy three blocks upon the statues pedestals and the door to its riches will unlock. Head to the village. Rumor says there lay hints of the location of the first block in your adventure.

NOTE: There have been known redstone issues (with a 5 clock) so if a maze looks completely impossible, feel free to just build your way up with blocks or something. If you can't pass the maze after trying for forever feel free to cheat as well.

The Rules


Don't break anything unless told to do so by a sign.
Stay within the confines of the fences unless told to do so.
Go ahead and use any crafting bench or chest, but don't forget you have your own luxorious home :)
Save if a sign says to do so, it usually signals lava.
Not a rule, but generally you shouldn't carry much more than your food with you, maybe a sword. Use the storage carts we built to help you move your stuff without endangering it.
SET DIFFICULTY TO HARD


We would love to hear what you think, so please leave feedback, bug reports too!

Awesome map!
I loved all the puzzles, and the story!
PHP
Just one problem.....
When I logged in, I started in some water next to spawn with items, its no problem cause I just had to kill myself to get to spawn, but you should fix that when you get a chance.

Without even playing it, I can tell you mazes are all easy, just follow the wall to the right.
The only way to counter that logic is by using pistons to move the walls every so often.

I urge you to play it then, I believe we can change your mind about that.

Press the start menu and search for "run".
After you open that, type "%appdata%" in the box, and press OK.
Then at the top of the new window, find .minecraft and double click it.
Double click "saves", and copy the adventure map into it (after you unzipped it).
Open Minecraft, open singleplayer, and enjoy! :)

Its a compressed file. Use either windows default zip application, or google for "7zip" or "WinRAR". Either will do.
Download and install, then right click the "advmap.zip" and press to extract the files. You'll have a folder called "advmap" which you can then put into your saves.

No no, 7zip is a program for decompressing .zip files. You can find it at http://www.7-zip.org/

Well, we've yet to get a review, hopefully we will soon.
But I hope you thoroughly enjoy it!

So long as at least one person likes it, and is entertained for a while by it, we're glad and think it was worth it :)

Guys, sorry for the inconvenience, v1.0 had the blocks already placed on the statue.. Our bad. We did that to take pics and forgot to get rid of them.

I realize you're playing already, but v1.1 has that gone.

I am a creator of this map and the person who made all the mazes.

Play this, and you won't feel that mazes are always sub-par.

We're working on v1.2 right now guys, our fences burned up with the lava, so we're coming up with a fix.
Expect it in a few minutes!
