I saw this maybe a year ago, and someone has bumped it back from the dead. I'm sure if you could contact the author an updated version of this could be played. (i doubt you could contact the author, because it seems to me he left minecraft a year ago)
Due to recent changes in my Minecraft custom map rating scale, I have rerated all SURVIVAL maps for better distribution within that category. Maps are on the same numeric rating scale as the rest, but the 'average' rating for that category is now set differently.
As a result, the rating for 'Skylands' has been increased from 15 to 16 (out of 20).
I'm considering making a few changes to this map to make it better suited to the newest versions, like adding more animals on each of the island, since they no longer spawn as frequently as they did before 1.8. I also might consider adding End support. It's probably just a personal project but I might release it and give credit where credit is due.
