Hey there! I'm developing an adventure map based around exploring a large island. I've been thinking about what challenges or secrets to include.
So, I thought I would ask the community what all of YOU would like to see when playing a map.
Essentially, the player begins the map at the center of the island and is provided with a list of objectives (survival island-ish objectives), but this island is not desolate or barren. In fact, it is teeming with activity - I just don't know what kind of activity yet!
The thread title says what would I want in an adventure map. I personally believe that adventure maps need to have a rich story or fun gameplay. Don't make a skyblock survival, a "wake up and dont know who you are" map, or survival islands unless you can bring something unique. Those have been done over and over. We need more variety.
If you plan to make a survival island map, you could add in dungeons with boss fights, or a mission that requires you to collect certain items in dungeons to summon a mega boss on the island.
