I am currently working on a 1.8.9 map for those of us with bad, laggy computers. HOWEVER, this map is not to be underestimated. I am attempting to show people that you can still make a great map with no clocks, in 1.8, with no custom resource pack. I, however, am temporarily braindead. I am attempting to make the weirdest map of all time with a world record of youtuber easter eggs. It is based on a zombie apocalypse story where you travel through dimensions and eras that have great storyline potential. I am currently working on Trayaurus's lab where all the time travel testing is taking place, and I have room for unlimited dimensions and eras. I have already got some great stuff down, like medieval, modern, pirates, futuristic, but I want EVERYTHING, I'm talking your favourite servers, youtubers, TV shows, anything! Just reply to this with your minecraft username and idea, and I'll put you in the credits of the map and give you a starter weapon for when you download the map. Thanks, now show me what you've got!
I'm just curious, so I wish to ask something not exactly pertaining to your map directly.
Why do you still use minecraft version 1.8.9? Many mods that make making adventure maps a lot easier have been updated to 1.10.2, like Forge with Worledit. And the new command block types added in 1.9+, make redstone clocks a thing of the past which in turn makes less laggy maps in general. So I just simply can't see why people still use 1.8.9.
basically the point is that I don't have a decent computer to be in 1.9 anyway, so while making my map, I would have around 2 fps, as I usually get in 1.9. I have tried many things but just the general speed of later versions is too slow.
