Race for Wool is a type of competitive Minecraft, where two teams race to acquire colored wools from two identical worlds and place them on a victory monument, while trying to slow each other down with arrow and cannon fire.
Tunnel Vision will be the battleground for the final round of the 4th Reddit Minecraft Tournament, to be played in late September, 2013. The map was originally created for the Redstoners vs Whiskey Brigade match on June 16, 2012. These teams are the respective winners of the first two RMCTs. The map was released to the teams, and the general public, only 24 hours before the match!
Tunnel Vision breaks some new ground for RFW maps. The lanes are only five blocks wide, much narrower than the typical 16 block wide lanes found in most RFW maps. It is also a very compact map, at only 192 blocks long. Despite it's small size, it is quite intricate and provides plenty of challenges.
But the most unique feature of Tunnel Vision is the "isolated lane", a path through the map that is completely seperated from the main world, and contains no supplies or resources. From the starting platform, players can choose to enter either the main lane or the isolated lane. Once they enter, they cannot switch to the other lane until the next time they respawn at the starting gates. However, supplies can be passed between the lanes at many points.
At each wool location, or "fleecy box", there is a button that is only accessible from the main lane. Pressing this button releases a wool into the isolated lane. The wool must be retrieved from the isolated lane and passed back to the main lane, where the victory monument is. All three wools must eventually be retrieved in this way in order to complete the map.
I, last_username, would like to thank my fellow mapmakers, iTruthful, FifthWhammy, and FreckleEars, for coming together and making this ambitious and experimental project happen. I'd also like to thank the RMCT staff and players who had faith in us to pull this off. It was a total blast!
