8. Rules and Information
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!
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
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
2. Copy the texture pack zip file included with this download to the "texturepacks" folder in your minecraft folder.
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
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.
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.
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!

-(Fixed!)Sometime after activating the 3 Foci, the Great Wing bridge will still not work. This happens if the player dies after activating the 3rd foci but has not yet pressed the bridge button. The Redstone will glitch. If for some reason it still does not work then the player may create his own bridge to get across when this happens.
-(Fixed!)Certain pieces of armor make the player invincible
-(Fixed)Spiders and Endermen appear white and without texture if played on 1.9 or higher
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. :biggrin.gif:
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. But still, a very good map. :smile.gif:
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.
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?
All the patcher does to 16x packs is change the water and lava textures to what they are in the actual texture pack. For higher resolution packs, it fixes certain textures such as the pumpkin textures, nether textures, etc. It'll still allow you to play the game with any other texture packs you have; it'll just make them a bit better. :3
I like how you say *the* puzzle, as if there was only one in the entire map. There are tones. Mind telling us which one? >_> And how about you listen to the videos more thoroughly instead of asking us?
Aaaaanywayssss... I love it. Seriously. It's beautiful, it's imaginative, it's huge and it's challenging (even on peaceful (yeah, I know, I'm a cheater)). Perfect.
