Distant Lands is an Arena style map with full featured Redstone powered engine behind it. Traverse your way through the Arenas as the enemies take chase and hunt you down. Can you make it through to the end? Are you tough enough to make it?
Fully operable Shopping system, utilising the levels and Command Blocks introduced in 1.4
5 uniquely styled progressive arenas, increasing in difficulty the further you get
Spawn room and difficulty settings
Expandable! New Arenas and features will be added.
Death system and a penalty for dying, this is no cake walk
Multiplayer supported (in 1.0a), allows you to play with your friends with more enemies to face
This is the first map that I have created, and every block has been placed by hand (or with the help of MCEdit and WorldEdit) so I still have lots to learn.
With the ability of easy expansion to this arena map and a dedicated map creator, new arenas are planned and will be released often to keep the map fresh.
Support, bugs, and suggestions can be posted into this topic. I would love to hear from you if you play the map, any comments, criticisms or lets play videos are welcome, and I will feature your videos in this post! If you would like your map to be featured in this arena please don't hesitate to contact me.
Without further ado I will link the map right here for all to see and download:
I create maps for fun, not for profit, so you are welcome to download these maps completely free of charge and adf.ly ads will not disturb you. You may modify this map as much as you wish, however if you plan on releasing your changes, please allow room to add my name to your list of credits
A quick reminder:
This map will run on Minecraft 1.4 and up.
Additions to the map will occur and will be regularly released, check this thread for more information
With the planned changes to Redstone in 1.5, I do plan to keep the map up to date, however it may take some time
Currect version changelog (v1.1):
New Arena! The End!
In game selectable Hardcore Mode! If you die, that's game over, no respawning for you
Quick thanks: This map was made through the inspiration of BananaPieLord and AntVenom. Nothing better than watching these YouTubers videos on one monitor while creating a map on the other.
Thanks to Sathion for his support
And a final thanks to Chief2424 for the idea from his map

AntVenom (CavemanFilms channel) part 2:
Added a new version:
Adds Multiplayer support. You should now be able to play with your friends on a harder difficulty! Or if you prefer a hard solo challenge, try switching to multiplayer, you'll regret it
Also reduced the death penalty slightly
Added version 1.0b:
- Fixes text in Cave Map
- Lowered the cost of Pork and the potions
- Removed Apples (Apples and Watermelon were basically the same thing
- Added Milk to assist with the annoying witches - cost 1 level per bucket
I have watched antvenom play this and its great! Im downloading it now and I understand why u must die to get back to ur current arena. You set the new spawn and then it will take you to ur arena! Correct?
Thats right. It's the same concept as SethBlings TF2 and other maps he's made. Theres no way to determine your spawnpoint besides dying, so this is a good way to use 1 button to teleport you to each arena
Not only that but there are multiple spawn area's being used and it can be tricky to determine where to go at each time, so to avoid ending up at the death penalty point, spawnpoints are used before teleporting to the shopping hall
