CTM maps are linear or multilinear worlds in which the player's goal is to find and complete the victory monument to finish the map. They are usually composed of several large areas and intersections that communicate these areas as the player progresses in the game. This monument is usually composed of characteristic blocks that you must find inside certain special boxes called Fleecy Boxes. The objectives are usually colored wool or stainted glass blocks, although they can also be other blocks or objects that the Mapmaker considers using.
I am currently working on a map of 16 objectives called "Dark Spell: The Apprentice" that will feature large detailed areas, custom mobs, epic constructions, and even custom Boss Fights with unique mechanics. The work of other mapmakers such as Heliceo, TikaroHD, Sketch, and others, have inspired and encouraged me to create my own CTM map.
Creating a map of this style takes many hours of work, as the mapmaker will first have to have his own ideas on which to rely on to start building the areas, then proceed to create the gameplay and balance the map. All of them are really complex tasks if you want to reach a final result with quality.
Below I will show you some images of the areas that I have built. All the feedback you give me will be well received
Thanks for reading.

Broken Realm is the first Mapwreck style event, where builders were given an open world and ten days in which to fill it with content. Full of beautiful dungeons, datapack wizardry and custom enchants (via PearUhDox's Cartographer datapack), this desolate isle contains naught but peril and adventure! Can you retrieve the 16 wool and conquer this shattered world?

Looks solid. Your areas look like they'd be a lot of fun to play. If you're probing for ideas, you should join the CTM Community Discord server. Lots of good folk there who are willing to help out, and it's still quite active. (Google for the link )
Honestly, I'm surprised, this looks really good! I was waiting for something like this, so I'll wait for it pretty hyped! at this rate this will turn into the next true full CTM ^.^ I wish you the best of lucks making this map, I'll play it for sure ^-^
