Poll: The next map, and how you will play it... (625 member(s) have cast votes)

With our next well under construction, the question i want to ask my fans is how they prefer to play adventure maps.

  1. My friends don't really play Minecraft, so i mostly play adventure maps by myself (138 votes [22.12%])

    Percentage of vote: 22.12%

  2. I hate playing alone, i always play adventure maps with my buddies on a server (295 votes [47.28%])

    Percentage of vote: 47.28%

  3. I prefer to play with my friends but we all have different schedules. We try to play together but if somebody leaves i will continue with the remainder or by myself (191 votes [30.61%])

    Percentage of vote: 30.61%

If you do play with your friends, how many? (If you play with different amounts, pick the amount that you feel would be your average)

  1. 1 other friend (79 votes [54.48%])

    Percentage of vote: 54.48%

  2. 2 other friends (40 votes [27.59%])

    Percentage of vote: 27.59%

  3. 3 other friends (10 votes [6.90%])

    Percentage of vote: 6.90%

  4. The more the merrier, often 4 or more will join me on my adventures (16 votes [11.03%])

    Percentage of vote: 11.03%

My personal Public Workshop Server @
220.233.205.155:25575
Anybody may join, however only i can shift you to creative and give you build rights, if im not on then sorry, but feel free to browse.
This server is like my little workshop. Its hosted in Sydney, Australia so my connection (and most Oceanic players) is fantastic! It fits about 10-15 people and i have craftBukkit, worldguard, worldedit, bpermissions, essentials all loaded onto it which at this point makes it nice and flexible. I use it to host adventure maps for friends, playing random generated vanilla style, and also to test and work on any maps i might be working on including Castaway Island.  
Currently i am hosting: Castaway Island (server version)
Im doing a full playthrough of my own map. I enjoy playing it as much as i do creating it. It also allows me write down any bugs i find along the way.
If you need to contact me theres a chance i may be online however, being an Australian, probably not for whatever weird and wonderful timezone you come from.

Unfortunately im not experienced enough with servers to answer that question. I know it can be done as ive done it in the past. Im sure there are tutorials out there. I tell you what, i will research this and update my post with instructions on installation for a server! Check back shortly =3

EDIT: I have now put in a 'INSTALLATION ON SERVER' set of instructions. Please let me know if this solves your issue or if it is even correct as i have not run this on a server myself yet (dont have the hardware)

It works with both 1.9 and 1.8

Please note that since the 1.9 update, any new chunks generated outside the map area (as this is all i explored in 1.8) will not extend the Ocean Biome and intsead generate normal land with all the 1.9 features included. If you wish to eventually colonize mainland then i suggest you head past the maps boarder =)

This. you are a God. I just played this map for the first time. My tree house is going well. Really, this is the DEFINITVIE survival map. Seriously, this is fucking better than VECHS. MANY MANY quests and challenges inspired by one of the greatest  movies of all time, VERY well put together, and all around.... great.... I really hope the yogscast does a feature of this.

This is the best adventure survival map I have personally ever seen ever in the history of time. HOW LONG DID THIS TAKE YOU?! Just days?! Because you sir, are godly.

DOWNLOAD THIS MAP. It's perfect.

One thing though, you may want to warn people about the... ahem... explosion better... I died 4 times. :P

what my brother said.

EDIT: I think I'll take off from where my bro left off then.

Okay. So, you should keep updating this map, and make more some time. exactly like this. You have something here. You have something epic. You should also contact the yogscast and show them this.

I think he's the pumpkin seed you get on the plane....

anyway, I'm at diamond level, I'm gonna complete the easy challenges and (possibly) set out for new islands tomorrow.

EDIT: Idea for updates! You could add to the main isle, OR you could add more to the meta game. If you add more to the meta game (Exploring off of the isle) make sure that you add in MCEdit schematic files so people can just put the new stuff directly into their version of the game.

If you want to I can upload the schematics shortly after release though.

I think that would be a good idea.

Idea for a new isle, how about you can add in an isle with double resources underground? hm? But to get to it, you need to explore obviously.

Just downright incredible. I've played it for about two hours and I don't wanna stop. I'm almost scared to gather resources from the islands because they're so beautiful (with the texturepack you provided, which may I note is INCREDIBLE). Thank you sir for creating this. I hope you may create something else of the like in the future. Rep4u.

EDIT: The ship is epic win :D

I really enjoy this map a lot. I have been playing it for about 4 hours straight, so I figured I should leave you a message.  Everything is very well done, and the quests and sheer amount of objectives makes this a great map to play. My only qualm is that it seems a little too easy. Everything is pretty much given to you right off the bat, which takes away for the whole "survival" aspect a little. Otherwise incredible map =]
