The link works fine; a .mine file won't solve it for you. I also don't support uncontrolled versions of this map floating around, although I know I can't very well stop anyone.
It's BIG map. Big enough that Minecraft can rage-quit while loading if it's stressed enough. Make sure that all unecessary background programs are closed, and use a registry cleaner if you have one. Make sure Java is up to date, too.
The fact is, sadly, that with something this size not everyone will be able to play it. If your specs aren't sufficient, either through a poor graphics card or lack of RAM, it may be too much. :sad.gif:
Me and some friends are already making some modifications to it for RPing. We are going to have 5 Noble Houses each controlled by a player(s) and separate the castle into 5 parts. So far the zones have been decided and about 1/4th of the citizens/guards have been placed. This map is going to be extraordinary for our style of RPing! Thank you so much for making it!
While I know I have no legal control over the map, please remember that I'm not finished with it yet (nor will be until Minecraft is fully out so I can add the new features like lights and doors and such), and would prefer if it not get out. A lot of work went into this, and while filling it with sand or making it an RP map is ok, please, please don't distribute it around or try to "finish" it yourselves.

Can I just ask, how big is the actual castle?
You mean in the books? No scale is given in the books, but it's definately much larger. Since this is the largest Creative can do I didn't have much of a choice. If the space was available it would probably be at least 4x the size it is now, and even that may not be enough.

Have tried creating some kind slums or a brothel? Remember every great kingdom has it's peasents :wink.gif:
Yeah, those are there, but that's kind of hard to recreate, especially when space is limited. Skimmer Town is probably the closest I come to a slum.

Edit: I found a secret exit through the castle walls that comes out underwater. I also found a random 1X1 pillar of trunk in the middle of nowhere underwater.
There ARE a few secrets around. The trunk out in the ocean isn't one, though. It's probably just a pillar I placed so I had a stationary platform for early pictures, and then forgot about.
