    Welcome to Untold Stories. This is where I post my CTM maps. (Complete The Monument) The objective is to finish the Monument by placing different colored wools and other material blocks on it. You find these wool blocks scattered around the map. The material blocks are iron, gold and diamond blocks. You may craft these blocks for the monument, But you are not allowed to craft the wool blocks.


    Are you new to my maps? Or just new to the CTM genre in general? Then you should play Corona Trials! It's one of the best works I have to offer and is also really enjoyable for CTM newcomers!


    Do you want to make videos of a map of mine? Sure, I recommend it, but you must have a link to this thread. If people watched your videos and want to play it themselves, they can find it really fast.


    Without further ado, Let's get on to the maps!


    For MC 1.9 - 1.12:

    Untold Stories 06 - Horrifeye - 1.2.1 For MC 1.14.4


    A shattered realm now void of life and filled with an eerie shadow. All that is left are remnants of a long-forgotten world.
    This map features an expansive dark sky world filled with grand areas and brutal design not for the faint-hearted.
    furthermore, expect a difficulty that ramps up as natural-spawning monsters scale with the map progress.
    Can you survive in this forlorn wasteland or will you perish together with what is left?

    Untold Stories 05 - Calamity Canyon - 2.4 For MC 1.12.2


    These once fertile lands are now blighted and devoid of life. Dark clouds have covered the canyon and spread evil. Survival in this barren wasteland is difficult due to the absence of an infinite food source. Explore the mesa and uncover the secrets that it holds. Can you manage to stay alive?

    Untold Stories 04 - Corona Trials - 1.2.2 For MC 1.12 (recommended for newcomers to my maps!)


    I've frequently gotten requests about an easier map, so here we go! This map is based around fire with a difficulty that builds up. It starts off at a manageable level suitable for newcomers to the CTM (Complete The Monument) genre, but will get quite tricky over time.

    Map Information:
    Recommended MC version: 1.12
    Difficulty: 2/5 --> 3/5 (from Easy into Normal)
    Length: 3/5 (Medium)
    Map Style: Linear-Branching
    Amount of Monument goals: 16 Wool + 6 Material Blocks (+ 27 Bonus Emeralds)

    The same render, but without the logo. The logo is on the bottom of the pictures. Feel free to use it for video thumbnails! Huge thanks to Moldybread for the Corona Trials logo!









    Untold Stories 03 - Myriad Caves - 1.2.1 for MC 1.10


    Myriad Caves, an extensive network of caves providing plenty to explore. This map is experimental in two ways.
    Firstly, the map layout is an open-world cave layout. So areas may have an abounding amount of pathways to other areas. Secondly, the map uses a different food/health system than a normal MC world. Instead of getting food points back you get health back directly when you eat a piece of food. This in combination with the challenging areas will provide you with a challenging yet rewarding experience. How far will you make it?

    Map information:
    Recommended MC version: 1.9 / 1.10 (1.9 recommended, 1.10 works as well)
    Difficulty: 4/5 (Hard)
    Length: 4/5 (Long)
    Map Style: Open World
    Amount of Monument goals: 16 Wool + 6 Material Blocks (+ 54 Bonus Emeralds)

    For MC 1.8:

    Untold Stories 01 - Goliath - 1.1 for MC1.8


    From forests to deserts. Go diving in the deepest oceans or go spelunking in the darkest caves. This map is an environment based map. It is extremely vast so that explains its name. It starts off relatively easy, but it gets harder and harder over time. But be wary, the map has a fair amount of traps

    This map is a really rough map and not my best quality work. I recommend you Try some of my MC1.9+ maps.

    Map information:

    Recommended MC version: 1.8

    Difficulty: Progressive 2/5 ---> 5/5 (Easy ---> Very Hard)

    Length: 5/5 (Extremely Long)

    Map Style: Linear Branching

    Amount of Monument goals: 19 (+ 1 Bonus goal)


    Pictures:










    Untold Stories 02 - Bigleaf Forest - 1.0 for MC1.8


    Stranded on an island full of vast trees you must survive. Explore and
    discover in this overgrown wilderness. This is an open-world map that is more of a survival map than an adventure map. Also, because this
    map has many leaves, fire doesn't spread, just to save your computer some hassle.

    This map is a really rough map and not my best quality work. I recommend you Try some of my MC1.9+ maps.

    Minimaps:
    Untold Stories Mini 03 - The Sower - 2.1 For MC 1.13.2


    This is my first (mini) map for 1.13. The map experiments a bit with the core mechanics by introducing a new hostile mob spawning
    system and and a spammable sword system. Feel free to leave feedback on how they play as I might use them again in a future map.

    The map was originally made for the 21st Strawberry Jam, but I ran into time constraints, so I finished it as a standalone project.

    In a world roses have withered and gloom filled the sky your objective is to find all flowers in the dark depths.
    Retrieve all flowers to reap the victory. You start in a barren wasteland filled with old barrows.
    As you explore these desolate ruins you will discover there is more than just old crypts below.

It will be out on 2 Feb 2018 as an open-world map containing 12 objectives with a difficulty that ramps up. The main focus of the map lies more on exploration and survival in a hostile environment while utilizing new fancy features like advancements! Hope you are excited!

    I would like to make an announcement! Yesterday the 6th of December my maps turned 3 years old!

    To celebrate this I am announcing my next map: Untold Stories 5 Calamity Canyon!
    I originally had a different map planned for spot 5, but I have been working on a smaller map as I don't want to just wait for 1.13 while doing nothing. So the original Untold Stories 5 will be moved to Untold Stories 6. Calamity Canyon is almost done as I only need to finish the final dungeon and then test it a bit for fine tuning. Its an open-world map with a scarcity of resources, so it kinda plays more like a hard survival map than other of my maps do.

    -Snipity snip-

    QUESTIONS FOR YOU!:


    -Which area took the longest to complete?

    -Which area are you the most proud of?

    -Which area do you wish you did a better job on?

    -What map in your collection would be a good follow up?

    -When will I get my tacos and corndogs?


    -The longest to complete was Primeval Woods. I got stuck for a few weeks on the idea of the volcano and how one would enter it. I was also not too happy with the different trees I created at first so I redid them. This map actually didn't take that much time to make compared to my other maps. (this one took 3 months)
    -I would say the Nebula Citadel. I've had the idea of the nebula citadel for a while, but the problem was that if I have an idea for a long time I start to iterate on it more and more and it becomes grander. I basically set the quality bar really high for myself. It turned out really well compared to the ideas I had.
    -Probably The Deep Dark Dungeon, its just a really generic mossy dungeon, but that was kinda the idea of it. I could have made a more creative lay-out as it is just simple rooms and hallways. (except for the iron bar room, that one was kinda interesting for gameplay)
    -Myriad Caves is a good follow up, but beware, the map is massive and pretty difficult. My first two maps are ok (I would recommend Goliath after you try Myriad), but they show that they are my first maps.
    -The Tacos and Corndogs are mine! All hidden in my lair! >:D

    Quote from Mancu32»

    What map is the ultimate you created?


    I would say either Myriad or Corona. Depends on whaty you are looking for as well. Myriad is pretty massive and difficult and focuses partly on resource starving. It's also open-world so you can go quite a few ways. Corona is more linear, easier and smaller. I would say give Corona a whirl if you haven't played too many CTM's before.

    The function of the records isn't just doing damage. For instance, one is a spammable knockback weapon, another one is good for getting extra drops with fortune and looting. You can also switch them from mainhand to offhand pretty quickly as well as they are spammable. So if you know an enemy is almost dead you can switch to a looting disc and kill it with it.
