In this map, you will be burning three epic structures based on PopularMMOs, aka, Pat! The three structures are the Frostmourne (the Lich King's sword from World of Warcraft), a piranha plant from the Mario games, and a half rainbow lucky block, half Challenge Games arena structure! I have improved how I built this map and added a winner's arena!
All signs are in English, it is multiplayer friendly, and takes about 15-30 minutes to play.

HI, ladybug. I know you are an excellent map creator as I know u have also created other maps for them. I made my first map but I don't think its that good. Are there any tips you can give me? Thanks. Have a good day.

Hi, MinecraftSlayer10000! I would love to help you, but I am not sure what exactly you are having troubles with. Is it making good builds that are detailed? Or are you having problems with redstone and command blocks? If you have a link to your map, I could check it out and then give you feedback on what you could improve, what is already good enough, etc.

Hi. Thanks for replying and sorry from me for replying late.
I apoligise in advance if this is too long.
A quick story:
I made a burning map and I forgot to upload the pictures of the 3 structures. So PopularMMos said "Upload the pictures so I can see whether it's a good map". Then after I did upload the pictures, and Pat never after responded.
Here is the problem. I do not know whether Pat has not seen them yet OR has seen the pictures and thought"These builds are bad nvm i don't wanna play this map".
I hope it's scenario 1, as I will post the map again with pictures, (But i will post it after Pat plays your map, as he may not see your one).
If it's scenario 2, i will still re-post it, except it saying"Please tell me what i did wrong in the map". Just to help me a little I decided to ask you, because I have seen your builds and....they were literally STUNNING.
What I think I did wrong:
I think my builds were poor, if not, please tell me as i will re-post it, asking PopularMMos himself what I did wrong.
Thank you for the compliments! I didn't realize how much people liked my maps! I did play your map, and I thought it was a good foundation for you to become an awesome map maker! I did notice a few things that could improve the map, how smooth it was for the player to actually play it, etc.
One, mobs were still spawning, so when I was in the pig, I died because of the massive amount of mobs that were in the dark parts of the pig. You can turn off mobs by doing /gamerule doMobSpawning false. Then, to make sure there are no living mobs sticking around, you could do /kill @e. This will kill everything, including you and any good mobs around. But that's okay, you can respawn anything that you want there.
Two, you might want to reposition your lava so it burns a lot more of the structures. For example, the zombie's hands and the sword sticking into it did not burn, so I could have stayed alive forever if I wanted to. I didn't find this to be too big of a deal, but you do need to keep this in mind as you make your maps. A technique I use when I am figuring out where to place the dispensers is to use water buckets instead of lava to see where the lava will flow.
Three, the kits need to be more balanced. I ran into this same problem with my first burning map. If you are going to have potions in the kits, they all need to be about the same length of time. I prefer to use potions that last about 20 to 30 seconds, as things happen very fast in burning maps. I would stay away from most fire resistance potions as those can be very OP, but if you use a mod or something to make customized potions, then you could have fire resistance potions that last about 20 seconds. Also, if you are going to have food in one kit, you probably should have food in all the kits.
Four, when I was in the structures, the parkour was almost too hard to make as the structure was burning down. In the zombie, one of the jumps were almost impossible. I think it was a four or five block jump, but the way you positioned the blocks, it was very difficult to actually make the jump.
I think that was most of my observations on the map. I think that with a few tweaks, your map would be just fine to play! I do have a few tips of advice, though. One, when you are putting in the Redstone, don't use stone blocks to place the Redstone on, as it makes the structure look very odd. I use barrier blocks (which you can obtain by doing /give [enter your Minecraft name] Minecraft:barrier) to put my Redstone on, as it makes it nearly invisible from farther away. The only thing that shows is the dispenser, but that's okay. You could also place your dispensers a little higher off the structure so the dispensers aren't in the way of viewing the structure. Another piece of advice I want to give you is, always, always have your own special, almost trademark, piece of the map. For example, I like to troll Pat and Jen in some way. In my first burning map, I hade an armor stand jump out from the wall to try to scare Jen. It didn't work exactly like I wanted, but still, they had fun with it.
As for you thinking the builds are poor, I think if you maybe added more detail to the builds it would look better. With some of the new blocks in Minecraft, you could use things like concrete powder (because it is like sand and will fall out of the structure) to make a plain green wall look more detailed. It also helps if you try to base you structures off of a picture, but you change it a little from the picture to give it your own twist. If you make things look cute or really epic, most of the time people like it better. I also use pixel art that I have found to build the structures except I make them 3D. Also, you can come up with mixtures of things, like the Rainbow Challenge Games Arena Lucky Block I made for this map. I think it looks epic, so maybe you could think up things like it. You could make a zombie villager-pigman mutant or a blue alien with three heads and one eye on each one. There is an endless supply of possibilities to what you could make, so just be creative and have fun! Also, just remember to put in screenshots and you should be good.
I am sorry if this was a little long, but I hope it was all constructive criticism and you are able to take something out of it.
