Hey there, and welcome to the 5th (and hopefully final) rendition of the "CTM Communty" thread! Here, you can find reviews of popular (or otherwise) CTM maps, schematic downloads, and a community of CTM mapmakers and map-players alike. You can make a single post promoting your map, or participate in the current conversation with others.This thread will be run slightly differently than the previous threads, however. The account the thread was made by is a joint account started by Drago, so as to allow multiple people to edit the OP and keep it up to date and hopefully last longer than the previous renditions, whose creators went inactive. If you ever have any need to talk to us about this thread - whether it be something's out of date, you want a review added, etc., feel free to shoot one of us a PM by clicking our names below!
Thanks to our predecessors Goreae, z_bill, isaac_bardin, and Redstone_Fanatic for running the four previous generations of this thread.

Huge announcement: Team Epic (including mappers such as Heliceo, Chipmunk, Rock, Fangride, Render, and Kaladun) are releasing a CTM-MMO called Monumenta, and the closed Beta is coming soon! This epic adventure will be free to play. Join the Monumenta discord channel:https://discord.gg/FsSJFcv
Please, If one of your maps is present in the full map list (second post), please submit it again following the new guidelines. We are especially looking for a number of the objectives and for a short and accurate description of the map in a maximum of 40 words.
What are CTM maps?
CTM maps are a kind of custom map pioneered by Vechs, centered around Completing The Monument. They are known to have unique and hostile terrain, deadly and effective use of mobs, and present difficult challenges to even the most seasoned of Minecraft players.
What should I post in this thread?
Anything CTM-related goes! Celebrating completing a map, announcements about a map you, or someone you know, has just released, pictures for an upcoming map that you're working on, or just general conversation with others who love CTM maps.
Can I please be a part of the joint-account?
We are currently not looking for any new admins.
In this section we will showcase the CTM of the Month. The map will be chosen by our community based on gameplay aesthetics or unique properties that make the map worth playing.
This time we don't have a map. We have a set of Mini maps made by many different people during the happening of the tenth Strawberry Jam. This time the theme was Apocalypse and Rexxefa (shoutouts) made us this great trailer once again for all the fine maps (enable closed captions to see what map and mapmaker each shot belongs to).
Ready to fuel your Mini-CTM mania?!?
We have a Discord group! Discord is like a combination of programs like Skype and Teamspeak, allowing for Groups, with channels inside focused on specific topics, as well as voice chat channels for things such as streaming, playing maps, and more!
You are the last of your Order in a Realm that has fallen to ruin. Re-establish the Pattern and kill the evil Krose, who brought about these atrocities. This map is extremely difficult and not for the faint of heart.
Prepare to fight through bigger and more dangerous areas than ever before seen in Chimaria. You finally have the chance to actually destroy the Storm, but could destroying the Storm cause an even worse danger than before?
A mini ctm in which the objective is to get to sky limit by collecting three diamonds. Uhc mode is enabled, with an absorption shield and natural mob spawns and mob grieving are off. There is a villager trading system.
A set of procedurally-generated maps played on a large section of modified vanilla-Minecraft terrain. Dungeons with lots of spawners! Vanilla mobs that drop interesting loot! Lots of secret treasures! Players are challenged with both combat and exploration.
Mold and degenerescence have spreaded in the world, you gotta stop it at its core by completing a monument somehow. Welcome to Rotland, the land of decay and decomposition.... realm of the Endermen and their unknown mysteries !!

Having several humorous individuals frequent this thread, it's not uncommon that we get reviews of a less-than-serious nature. Any reviews that were written as a joke or presented in a funny way will be documented here.
Here is a list of maps that have either been requested to be reviewed, or just maps that the joint-account owners would like to review. Please note that we DO allow multiple reviews per map, so just because one of us has it on our to-do list doesn't mean you can't also review it.
If you want your map to be added to the Upcoming Maps list but it hasn't yet been noticed by one of the admins, please fill in the form below and PM it to the CTMCommunity account!
Please note: when your request has been filled, your PM will be deleted so as to conserve space in our inbox. If your PM is deleted, and you didn't get a message back from one of us on the account, your request has still been answered.
If you aren't sure if your map has been added, check the list of Upcoming Maps.

Alright, since I didn't make this clear, let me say it right now...
A lot of the stuff on the current OP is filler, and only a basis for changes we can make in the future. I'm open to hearing feedback on what you think could improve the OP, both visually and in content. I'm also open to using any review system you guys think could work.
The only thing I can think of is that you make groups for ratings on maps.
Because I would never give From ashes & Vinyl fantasy that high ratings overall when they are EXTREMLY hard and not fun to play IMO. These kind of maps would go in the hard section/Experienced CTM player group.
And maps like spellbound caves, ( I haven't played a lot of CTM maps so I'll suggest my own here ) Ruins of the Mindcrackers would go in an easy to medium section/Average CTM player group.
That's a good idea - split the maps into categories, based on the difficulty the maker provides (hard, easy, medium etc) and rate them 1-10 for that, instead of having the rating be universal. Then whoever is looking for a 10/10 easy map will know where to look, instead of accidentally finding a Xekaj or three_two but being unfamiliar with what they provide.
Agreed, I'll add that to the list of things we can improve on the OP.
TCOMH is on the upcoming maps? Thanks, Drago! I really appreciate this.
Also, Drago & whoever else ends up working on this, I think it'd be a good idea to put a trust value on the reviews, since you're allowing submissions. By this, I mean that, say, Fangride would have a higher trust value than some random guy about whom you know nothing (Unless it was a Septum Immoriel review, of course).
