News:Hot Pockets v1.0, my second map, is released!
EABLE2'S CTM MINIMAPS
Hello everyone; I'm eable2! I've recently decided to get into making minimaps, so I created this page to house them! As I release more maps, I will continue to update this post. I will also update the post with news and tester requests.
The maps are short, compact, and quick. They will generally take experienced CTM players between 30 minutes and 2 hours to complete.
Each map contains five objectives: Yellow Wool, Blue Wool, Green Wool, Red Wool, and an objective unique to the map.
The maps are open worlds, which means that you have access to all five objectives from the beginning. Players are encouraged to unzip multiple copies of the maps to try new starting strategies! There are no best ways to beat the maps.
The maps are made with gameplay and balance in mind first. I am not out to kill the player. The way I see it, my role is to be a creator of engaging content that makes the player want to keep playing. The maps will frequently be challenging, but they are by no means impossible. I don't intend to release a map without it being tested by myself and at least one other player.
The maps frequently feature custom mobs, custom loot, and hidden secrets for you to find.
Use Survival Mode on Easy, Normal, or Hard difficulty.
Don't dye wool.
Don't use mods that alter gameplay.
(NOTE: I consider survival mode to exclude anything involving creative mode or editing game files. Using commands or editing level NBT data is cheating.)

I make my maps almost exclusively in mcedit. So far, I have not experimented with any in-game editing tools, but I may in the future.
Please feel free to upload videos and reference my maps. Just be sure to provide a link back to this thread!
If you're looking for more CTM information, resources, or mapping advice, I highly recommend checking out the CTM community thread! There are a lot of friendly, helpful people there!
I don't really know because it's untested, but it's supposed to be about the same. It's very different though - you have a lot of defenses but are very limited in terms of weapons...you'll see. I think the red wool in Hot Pockets is pretty difficult, and should take a while to get. I completed the map myself though, so it's not impossible!
Testers, I'll send the map over in a little while - I'm trying to fix this annoyance with the Unified Spawner Filter, and I've got some last-minute touching up to do.
Just played Hot Pockets, it was a lot of fun and a nice challenge! I was surprised that all these difficult challenges were beatable with the few resources required. The lack of a sword meant you had to focus on more stealth-based gameplay, and forced you to come up with unique and clever solutions to the problems presented. All in all, good map, very challenging, would recommend.
