I have gone and wasted (well, not wasted) several hours of my time- over 15 to be a bit more specific -in making this map for you guys! This map, titled ‘The Elytra Games’ is a gamemode involving the new wings added in the 1.9 Minecraft snapshots. Normally these wings would be used for… Other things. But I decided to throw a bit of PVP in there! Using your flight skills to maneuver the map, and bow skills to kill players, you can conquer the world! Well not really. But make your friends feel bad about themselves. Ok maybe not that either. But you get to shoot at things! So that’s fun.
This map is playable in minecraft snapshot 15w42a, so keep in mind when playing in other versions that this map might not work. I recommend you have at LEAST 3 players, but it works with 2 just fine. One of the biggest reasons that I called it the Elytra Games, rather than Elytra PVP, is because, well first off Elytra Games sounds better, and secondly, I want to expand to other Elytra based games in the future, such as racing, obstacle courses, and so on.
Key Info Recap:
-Play in 15w42a
-Recommended 3+ Players
-Prob want a good server..
Any other rules or informationally things can be found within the map itself, its pretty straight-forward though, so you should have no troubles.
I really like this map! though it would be cool to have the new tipped arrows incorporated into it like blindness, poison, etc. another thing that would be cool are some shields. Maybe if one could have an option to choose shields over another object of defense. all in all it is a really great map.
