So... I guess I'm done with map making... if it wasn't obvious already. I have moved onto programming (what a nerd!!!) and that's what I'm going to do with my life. It's crazy that I started just making maps in high school to see how I did. I made some simplistic adventure map that got way more downloads than I ever expected, and then I made an absolutely terrible CTM map. Karrot helped me so much. I made the simple Corrupted Lands maps after and I saw myself improving. I decided to go for it and make a massive map and Abundant Seas was just that. I can't believe I have almost 3,000 downloads on just that map. Then Doomed Enterprise took forever because I lost interest, but I finished it because I knew I had to. I think that map shows the best of what I can do and how far I came.
I have always hated the super hard CTM maps and so I made maps that were very possible. I want everyone to win and have fun... so about all those unfinished Let's Plays..........
Every compliment and happiness that came out of these maps from other people means so much to me. So much can happen in almost four years, it is incredible. I love that I gave people some joy from something I created, and I really hope that I can achieve that through programming too. I absolutely loved watching the Let's Plays that were finished. Watching other people is incredible and I can't describe how awesome it makes me feel.
Never be scared to just try a hobby. That's what map making and programming has shown me.
Karrot and Samster423 are awesome people. I'll never meet you two, but thanks for everything.
Don't play in 1.8!!!! The maps get screwed up!!!!!
You are Doomed! Take the journey... The Enterprise... It is certainly a Doomed Enterprise you will embark on. Save your soul from whatever it is that has overtaken you. You wake up... but did you really wake up? Are you dead? Complete the Monument and see...
There is a story, but you can ignore it all if you want... Tell me if there are issues! Give advice too!
Corrupted Lands Maps
These maps, in general, aren't very good. They obviously still show me working out balances and getting better at aesthetics. Corrupted Lands 1 has incredibly insanely easy loot and quite a lot of mobs, so it's really a lot of mash up of fighting. Corrupted Lands 2 is much easier and will probably being boring for some people. I can really only recommend it to people just starting the CTM genre.They are both very easy in general, and also small and quick. If you want a real map, then play Abundant Seas or Doomed Enterprise whenever I come out with that. I would link the Let's Plays for these maps but I have forgotten the names of the channels playing them...
Always tell me about Let's Plays because watching those really is the best part of making these maps. Any feedback is welcome (don't be scared to tell me what I did wrong, because that's the only way I got better in the first place).
I'll beta test if you still need people. I've been playing maps for a really long time, just new to Minecraft Forums, so don't worry about post count.
I'm thinking that I probably won't do a beta of the map. That will make the release date much farther back, something I don't want to do. I will probably just release a version 1.0 of this map and then fix it when I need too. I might finish this map on the upcoming weekend. If I were to do a beta, it would be much longer...
I feel like you could just expand it a tad bit more and do a 16 wool map.
I might, but I feel like 12 is a number that the wool will stay at. People want to play, and I want to finish. If I put 16, then I feel like some areas won't be good because I will quickly try to finish it to get the map out.
