    Hiya! Thanks for playing! Yeah, I wanted to do more with the ending but ran out of time. There were chains against the glacier near the monument that did break with each wool but my datapack didn't detect all 3 being placed correctly so no "congrats" message was played.

    Just finished Nether Breach with a friend, definitely enjoyed my time with it. I especially liked how you handled the rare items, nothing felt too overpowered - well if only because we had further enhanced the enchantments of some items such as Return to Ashes (amazing bow btw, carried me from when I got it until the end).


    The only criticism I'd have is the red wool dungeon seemed really bs, maybe tone down the amount of spawners in that area since at any point you're being pelted with potions+arrows+other mobs. That dungeon was by far the hardest, harder even than the black wool dungeon.


    Looking forward to more entries, will definitely give them a try :)




    Glad you enjoyed! Red wool rewards players for trying approaches other than slogging through it. That's the intent anyway. People make it way harder than it actually is. Potions give you insane survivability against mobs and blocks protect against dispensers (and ender pearls skip hazards entirely).


    Example using very underpowered gear for this stage in the map, and on hard difficulty (map balanced around normal):



    I wanted black wool to be a challenge but not a slog. Something thats still deadly but can be a fun final lap of the map to end on. If it ended on something harder than red people would probably be like "thank god that's over".

    It looks like this build by the way, but this one is even better


    What do you mean?

    notes on the blue wool- we were aware of issues going in having read the posts about it, and were very careful not to trigger until we were ready, and like others it didn't spawn. we cleared out the guardians below, and on a whim, i started breaking the sea lanterns and bricks surrounding the spawner, when i'd cleared 3 of the sides it spawned immediately. seems to be on roughly a two minute timer, we waited it out and it did indeed spawn again.

    which is weird, because looks like you do have it on a long distance spawn as he appeared pretty well into the main lower chamber, but the spawner didn't think it had room to activate.


    Thanks for playing! Yeah, so it's a long range spawner that spawn in the room with I think a 90-150 second delay on respawning. It's supposed to spawn as soon as you get there. What has been happening is that is spawns in the chamber while you're above, and then despawns for some reason, even though elder guardians shouldn't...

    Glad you're enjoying so far! The flowers in the mushroom area are actually just a vanilla mechanic. The tool tip hints that they can be made into a stew. A mushroom stew. If you add a flower as part of your crafting recipe for a mushroom stew it makes a suspicious stew with a beneficial property. They're honestly not that useful... The regeneration one is the only one I ended up making in my own tests and it was okay, but you can only carry a few.

    Glad you're enjoying! I'll take a look at that, the spawner should have triggered as soon as you got there but it must be not primed for some reason.. I'll fix it so this hopefully doesn't happen again.

    Welcome to the Distant Lands, a series of Complete the Monument maps designed for those new or returning to the genre, or to provide a classic experience to veterans!

    Come and check out the CTM Repository for more maps like these or join the CTM Discord to chat with myself and other amazing mapmakers, players and content creators. It's the best place to be to play maps or learn how to make your own!


    My difficulty scale:

    I balance around what I find to be enjoyable, which tends to involve a bit of resource gathering, a little bit of death, and a lot of loot to combat all the hazards and traps you'll find. The best way to phrase my difficulty rating is "how easy is it to complete without dying".


    Relaxed - Enjoyable challenge for less experienced players. A step up from vanilla minecraft.
    Moderate - Designed for newer or returning players looking for a challenge! Expect to find good loot to combat the tough environments and encounters.
    Difficult - Don't be reckless. Careful play and strategy will be needed to get through this environment.
    Brutal - You'll die a lot. It's part of the process. These maps are difficult.

    NOTE: Use a Vanilla server if you're playing any maps in multiplayer. Spigot servers sometimes interpret dimension files incorrectly, so manual adjustment of the nether and end files in the server may be needed. Play in the intended version of minecraft to avoid bugs.

    1. Nether Breached Caverns

    Ender Pelagic, a research facility researching interdimensional travel, had witnessed a disaster. Their Nether experiment had gone wrong, and now the subterranean caves have been opened up. With the dimensional link broken, going down into the caverns seems like the only promise of escape...

    2. Starblight Desert

    A map, a compass and a ship is all you have - well... you had a ship. You find yourself on a desert island. The sun has long set and now a blood moon hangs in the sky. Can you keep your sanity while trying to bring the sun back?

    Strawberry Jam #32. Rekindle

    A small map I made for the 32nd Strawberry Jam event, a 72 hour map making jam.


    An icy valley was once home to settlers, fed by the warmth of a bird of flame. Those days have passed, and so have the residents of this quiet place. You awaken to reignite the flames of this land.


    This map features no natural health regeneration. Food restores health directly.
