Does anyone have a link to a map file a server has given out? I don't care if the file is outdated or the server has closed, as long as I can run the map in single player. The more elaborate and complex the server is the better (minecart subway, multiple towns, castles, etc.).
I had an idea yesterday about how much fun it would be to run around in a multilayer server... by myself. I could pretend every other person on earth disappeared, or time froze, or there was a zombie apocalypse or something. And I could have fun, grief, and rebuild what society had left behind. A world of my own!
At first I thought this would be easy, but I've found most servers don't readily give out their map files. So if you have a link to one, please share.
EDIT: Quick question, would I still have access to the items left behind in chests? It would be great if I did.
This post, at the bottom, as a save file from their server. It's actually pretty epic if you explore it. I had to add Minecart Mania to make traversing the minecart tracks easier, since it's probably how they had their system automated.
But I believe once you explore it, you'll see why I recommended this particular SMP save. This is a server save though, so you'll have to run it through the server client, but I run the client on my computer and Minecrat itself just fine. (Unsure if there's a way to play a SMP in singleplayer mode)
