Update #5: 8/24/21
Guess who’s back with another update! Progress is still going smoothly but as predicted, we were unable to start developing before the summer ended. However, with World Edit nearing 1.17 release, we will begin to finish up the maps and start development really soon. Though, we unfortunately decided to cut two of the maps, the maps in question being Zombie Apocalypse and Cavern as we did not feel like they would fit in a map like this. We plan to start developing when we have 6/8 (3/4) of all the maps done! We aim to have this map completed or near-completed by the end of the year, but no promises.
Overworld Maps: 5/8 completed
Nether Maps: 4/8 completed
End Maps: 0/8 completed
o Nether for Snowy and Inverse have been completed
o Production on the End maps have started
o Images and Thread information have been updated

It's been a little bit but we have made a ton of building progress these past few months!

Jun 11, 2021Posted in: WIP MapsUpdate #24: 6/11/21
It's been nearly four months and 1.17 has just been released. We are aware of this and we are also aware of the fact that we said we would continue development once 1.17 is released.
However, we would like to release this minor updating stating that we will not be continuing development until Speedrun Mayhem is complete. We have been making good consistent progress on the map and we can expect it to be complete or near-complete by the end of the summer. We do not want to drop one map and pick up another as we didn't expect 1.17 to release in this two-part structure.
As of right now, Proxima's development is still paused. Our current plan is to finish Speedrun Mayhem, then resume development on Proxima. After this, work on a new minigame map and then finally a sequel/prequel to Aberrant Worlds, Proxima, or something new entirely.
Thank you, we hope to see you all having fun with our maps! Stay tuned for an update regarding Speedrun Mayhem soon.

What is it?
The basic objective of the map is to complete Minecraft as fast as possible. There will be up to four teams competing in a 96x96 slice of terrain. The terrain will have everything required to beat Minecraft. In addition, all four teams will have their own separate Nethers & Ends. . In addition, we have custom modifiers and separate game modes for players to try out! Overall, this is a competitive map as each team races to beat Minecraft!
Custom Map & Terrains
The map will feature 8 custom maps & terrains for players to compete in. A few of these even have alternative goals to get to the EnderDragon.
The most box standard map! A default Minecraft Plains Biome with a river, ravines, grass, ruins, trees, etc. The underground consists of a large mineshaft and branching caves. The Nether and End will be completely Vanilla, this is the box standard map.
This map will be based on the Vanilla Jungle Biome. The map will have a large outer ring with jungle fauna and a lake in the center, the lake in the center would have an island raised up where the jungle temple would be located. In addition, the caves will be lush with fauna; with three separate paths to choose from. The Nether will be a half warped/crimson forest with patches of normal nether. The end will be a bit amplified with a jungle of chorus fruit!
This map will be a default mix of the Minecraft Snowy Taiga biomes. The map itself will entirely forest with a small campsite. In addition, the underground is a large icy cavern with archaeological sites and camps. The Nether will be modified basalt deltas with nether structures and bridges. Finally, the end would appear barren, with the ground featuring veins of cracks and obsidian, the end towers could be crumbled as well.
Overworld features a mixture of Nether biome terrain, while Nether features vice versa. The same goes for the overworld. The nether portal will be located at the top of the “overworld” and the end portal will be located at the bottom of the “nether.” The most important resources will be found in the “nether” while most nether materials will be found in the “overworld.” The end would just be chaotic with random blocks placed, towers looking crazy, etc.
A fantasy-based terrain. The overworld will have underground dungeons, magic in the air, castles, ruins, etc. However, the nether would look something like Minas Morgul. The end would be a shattered world, with the islands broken apart being held by chains. It would be a dark dimension, with a massive alchemical symbol in the sky, the obsidian towers could “connect” to the symbol in the sky.
A steampunk-based terrain. Could have machines, train tracks, mining, etc. Similar to that of the Red Cave from Proxima. The nether would be a dark twisted factory and the end could be a city. The end portal will be located behind a randomly generated puzzle that will be different every time.
Will hark back to the themes of Atlantis and the blue cave from Proxima. This map will be a mix of above land and underwater. The Nether will either be completely drained or filled with lava and players need to navigate the open “waters.” The end could be some sort of Atlantis-themed temple. The map will be played like an LoZ Temple or Diversity in which to unlock the end portal, they need to collect relics found behind different trials. The map will also require them to travel between dimensions to solve some puzzles as well.
Will include your average swashbuckling themes with ships, docks, ports, islands, etc. The map will include cliffs, a custom villager port, cliff-side caves, and wrecked ships. The nether will be a large lava sea with a few islands and spikes jutting out of the lava. There will be two fleets facing each other, both serve as the nether fortresses. The end would be a ship town graveyard, with sunken ships everywhere that form a town, this map would be mostly vertical.
The map will include several modifiers that can be toggled On/Off to give the players more control with their experience!Almost pacifist (can only directly damage blazes, enderman and ender dragon)> UHC Mode (no natural regen, apples are required to regen)> Aggressive animals (always zombie jockeys)> Perma Saturation, haste, and keep inventory.
> Only One Hit Point™
> 1.8 PvP
The map will include a few separate game modes along with the default speedrun mode. These can be chosen at any time!
Quick Speed (everything is faster!!!)
This game mode essentially speeds up the process of beating Minecraft. For example, an Enderman can drop way more pearls per kill, ores drop double the loot, all players have haste II, ender dragon spawns with no crystals, furnaces smelt faster, etc.
Random Tasks (completing random tasks the fastest)
It works just like it sounds, just complete up to 5-10 random tasks we throw at you. It can be anything such as crafting a diamond hoe to collecting 64 blocks of cobblestone to respawning the Enderdragon; the possibilities are endless!
Ain’t nothing wrong with a good old game of Bingo! It works just as it sounds, all players will get a bingo card, and players are required to complete tasks on the bingo card to get BINGO! Basically, it’s like random tasks but a bit more controlled.
Oooooh boy, you better be good at defending yourself for this one. In this game mode, normal mob spawning will be off but zombies will spawn periodically around the map and they will be unkillable by normal methods, but you will be able to trap them! This game mode will really keep you on your toes.
How you can help us!
We really need as much feedback as we can get. So please help us get the word out.

Update #23: 2/22/21
We realize that it's been nearly 3 months since the last update and we could like to apologize. We just wanted to make sure that the time was right to announce this.
Effective immediately, the development of Proxima is currently Paused or undergoing recess. This project is not canceled, it's just been halted temporarily. There are a few reasons for this...
- The 1.17 update will change a lot of Minecraft, especially the cave system. We decided we want to wait for this update to be released so that we won't lose any progress due to the 1.17 changing Minecraft. If we wait for 1.17 to be released, we will likely resume development.
- Unfortunately, some of our team members have left by their own wishes. This severely halted our progress but we have been working to get progress done
- Lack of motivation. We have been working on this project for nearly two years and we keep having these amazing ideas we can't add in which causes motivation to decrease, we decided that moving away from this project temporarily is something that would benefit everyone
This is not the end for Proxima or the map-making team. In fact, we are working on a new mini-game map while we wait for the 1.17 update to release. This new project will be announced shortly. I thank you all for your support and I hope you stick with us! The new project will be added to this thread once it's announced.

Hi there, a long long time ago I have posted to this thread but this was nearly 4 years ago. This is a childhood world that I have been able to dig up and it's been corrupted for several years. The main issue is that there are a lot of chunk errors, sign errors, generation errors, and "tree" errors. I have done everything in my knowledge to try and restore the broken chunks with the builds that I had.
Any help would be appreciated and I will not hesitate to provide more information if needed!

Update #22: 11/15/20
Before we start, we would like to apologize for this update taking so long! We have made a lot of progress in the background and we are excited to release this map as we progress day by day. However, it's exam time for a few of us so please understand that it will take a bit longer. Overall, most of the small stuff has been completed and we have finalized everything on the map. We just need to hurdle over some major obstacles before we can start testing.
- Some recipes have been removed and/or changed
- Mob drops have been tweaked in order to balance the map a bit more
- Skip Travel has been changed; we have reduced the points you can skip too
- New items have been introduced with full textures & models for them
- Key item concepts, gear effects, and bosses have been added
- Certain mobs will now be able to spawn that will house unique abilities
- Secret breakable walls have been placed/hidden throughout the map
- Blueprints, mob information, skip travel & location information, ammunition, and lore/computer logs will now be displayed within a custom menu we are making just for this map
We will be updating a lot more frequently from now on as we start getting close to testing. Within the next few days, all the screenshots and textual information on the main thread will be updated.
We suggest you check back in every now and then as the thread will be updated often!

o Screenshots have been updated

Aug 21, 2020Posted in: WIP Maps
Update 20: 8/21/20
We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we have "hired" a few new command developers to help with the map quality and speed of completion. The bad news is that after we have had some outsider observation, parts of the map will have to be changed and the plot will also need to be adjusted. This will delay the map a bit but fear not, we are now very much alive now with some extra help!
Release: Before the year ends, we will try to guarantee this
o The map page and the descriptions have been updated
o The map will now fit a bit more with the Metroidvania motif
o Gears have been revamped, will function similar to Hollow Knight
o Some custom items have been scrapped/replaced with a few new ones
o Recipes will need to be adjusted

o The background lore has been heavily revamped, with ways to help players piece together the lore
o Cutscenes overhauling has been introduced
