Map: Dynamic Parkour

\n

The distinctive feature of this parkour map is its movable blocks. It's hard to finish any parkour map with static blocks, but here, the challenge to hold steady can get especially difficult.

\n

Besides the movable blocks, you will encounter blocks with different triggers. So this should make your run full of surprises.

\n

There are three large levels for a total of 15 areas. But each area also has checkpoints, so don't worry if you can't finish everything at once.

Map: The Hallway

\n

Welcome to the hallway of dreams!

\n

This fun little map oozes with flavor and Halloween atmosphere. It's like running through a room of nightmares in an amusement park.

\n

But all this shouldn't scare you, even if there is a hidden skeleton waiting behind the next trapdoor. Each section of the map has a way out and some neat solutions for players to be able to reach it. If you can find them, of course.

Map: The Facility

\n

This parkour challenge is set inside a giant vault from which you need to escape. If you manage to solve all the puzzles, you will end up inside a facility that has an exit.

\n

The design of the map was inspired by games like Quake and Doom, so if you are familiar with these titles, you may even find certain similarities in the map design.

Map: Anvil Fall

\n

In this parkour map, you will need to avoid an infinite anvil rainfall, which does make things extremely uncomfortable.

\n

There is no end to it, so it's basically a run for time. The longer you last, the better your score will be. Such a map could be an excellent challenge for a multiplayer game.

\n

Although the map is really small, the anvils fall down randomly, so each run will feel unique.

Map: Player vs. Redstone

\n

Do you like jumping? Good, because in this map, you will have to jump again and again. Basically, you will do nothing else but jump your way out of this crazy parkour map.

\n

This map can be played in co-op mode with your buddy, which will only make your run more exciting. Or, perhaps, harder. 

\n

The redstone blocks in this map are customized, which means that you can't run on them. But at least you can see them.

Map: Black and White

\n

This parkour map not only plays with your perception using only two colored blocks, but it also provides genuinely creative obstacles that will keep you thinking.

\n

At times, you will wonder if you need to jump down or up, and at others, you will walk in circles trying to find your way out of the map's seemingly endless loops.

\n

In any case, this parkour map is a true gem that should be experienced by every Minecraft player.

Map: Hellevator

\n

Now here's something really different. This map will bend your mind and test your parkour abilities.

\n

It contains 10 progressive levels, where each section gets harder and harder. But don't be intimidated by the funky visuals, it's actually not as hard as it may look at first.

\n

In order to make the map run in the best possible way, it is recommended to switch off "clouds" in the graphics settings of Minecraft.

Map: Impossible Parkour

\n

How about something extra hard? This parkour map is designed to seriously challenge even the most qualified Minecraft players.

\n

According to the creators of this map, it has only been finished by 10% of all players who have ever tried it. If you consider yourself really brave, then accept this challenge and enter the prestigious 10%.

\n

If you can't beat it, then at least you can have fun trying it out.

Map: Sky Parkour

\n

It can be really hard to finish a land-based parkour map, but trying to go through various obstacles in the air is twice as hard.

\n

This parkour map offers one huge challenge in the sky. You can't make a single mistake. Otherwise, you will end up falling out of the world.

\n

The higher you go, the more complex obstacles you will meet, lending a sense of actual progression to the map.

Map: Honey Block Parkour

\n

This is another map that shows off the possibilities of the honey block. 

\n

In the previous maps, you could slide along walls and climb a honey elevator, but here, you need to use the momentum of the pressure plates to get to the honey blocks in the distance.

\n

Doing so may require several tries before you get used to the high speed of the run, but it's worth every second.

Map: MrMesch's Parkour

\n

If you're an old-school player, then MrMesch's Parkour is the map for you.

\n

It contains 19 separate challenges with different levels of difficulty. Most importantly, there are no command blocks or other unnecessary doohickeys. This pure parkour map involves only jumping and running, nothing else.

\n

But don't think it's an easy map. Some of the challenges could take you up to several hours to finish.

Map: Multigame Center

\n

If you like really elaborate parkour maps, then this one will definitely surprise you.

\n

It's made up of eight different levels that occupy separate parts of the map. You can either play them all or choose one and master it really well.

\n

In either case, you will have to reach the Escape Room, the final level of the map, which is truly challenging, even for the most experienced parkour players.

Map: Bitty Parkour

\n

This excellent parkour challenge actually consists of four maps in one, including: taiga, mineshaft, snow town, and beach.

\n

In the beginning, it's pretty easy, but as you progress through different levels, it gets harder and harder. This map is designed with verticality in mind, which means that you will go from the lowest low to the higest high

\n

This map is best experienced with the "Render Distance: 6" setting.

Map: Honey Elevator

\n

Just like the map before, this one utilizes Minecraft's new honey blocks but in a different way.

\n

In this map, you will face the challenge of going up several stories instead of wall jumping and sliding. But that will be required, too, although at the later stages of the run.

Map: Honey Parkour

\n

In this Minecraft map, you will find the latest evolution in parkour maps added to snapshot 19w41a: honey blocks.

\n

Players can stick to this block type and then slide along the walls for some incredible parkour moments.

\n

The Honey Parkour map is designed so that you can loop the run and master it. The entire run may take you up to an hour, so be sure to prepare for this massive undertaking.

Minecraft Map: Dead By Daylightcraft

\n\n

Your eyes do not deceive you: some mad modder actually recreated the asymmetric horror Dead By Daylight experience in Minecraft! Unlike the other seeds and maps we've covered so far, this one is meant to be played multiplayer with 2-5 players.

\n

Unfortunately, getting it up and running for five people can be finicky, since you all need to have the same map and texture packs downloaded  but the end result is well worth the effort for horror fans!

Minecraft Map: Dyemona

Want to play a horror game in celebration of Halloween but just can't quite give up your Minecraft addiction? That's where maps like Dyemona come in, which are essentially self-contained horror stories complete with jump scares and bloody discoveries.

Minecraft Map: Hello Neighbor

Yep, this nifty map is designed around the concept of indie reverse home invasion phenomenon Hello Neighbor! Like the game that inspired it, you'll need to find a way into the neighbor's house, hide in closets to avoid detection, and flip switches to gain access to the basement.

Finding scary Minecraft seeds is harder than it sounds.

\n

While there are plenty of breathless headlines about how you shouldn't use this "ultra-scary cursed" seed if you want to keep your pants unsoiled, the sad fact of the matter is that most of the "scary" and "spooky" seeds out there are clickbait garbage. 

\n

It's a good bet if you're reading a description of some ancient Japanese horror folklore that's invaded a Minecraft seed, what you've got is more Creepy Pasta and less actual working seed.

\n

In most cases, in order to get something scary, you want to look for seeds that have a zombie or skeleton spawner very close to the initial spawn point, or instead be on the hunt for seeds that give you great Halloween color themes with their biomes.

\n

Otherwise, the only way to get an actually spooky Minecraft experience is to download a custom made map, as straight seeds aren't going to generate the scare factor you're seeking.

\n

As always, a special thanks goes out to Minecraft Reddit fanatics and forum junkies who originally mined for these seeds. Be sure to keep in mind that not every seed will offer the same results with every version of the game!

Does a phrase like "jaw dropping" even begin to do this justice? Look at those hedge mazes and French gardens before you even get to the insane Gothic castle!

I shudder to think of the hundreds of hours that had to have gone into this one, and hats off to the original creator!

Map: Château de Chenonceau

\n\n

Talk about a labor of love! This dedicated Minecraft fan put together a painstaking recreation of the French Château de Chenonceau utilizing both historical documents and modern day maps of the castle's current state.

\n

Unfortunately while this is a true beauty to behold on the outside, none of the interior is finished, so you'll have to take care of that part yourself. But hey, all the hard parts have already been built, so get to it already!

Map: Medieval Castle

\n\n

This Minecraft castle offering is a lot more compact than the other entries on our list, which tend to be sprawling estates that make full use of every available square block.

\n

Just look at that crenelation and those onions on top though! Is it just me or does this one give off a bit of a Russian vibe as well?

Map: Spring Castle

\n\n

More than just a walled fortress, this map includes its own little bustling village to take over and call home... if you can track down eight hidden diamonds inside.

\n

Between the houses, garden, stables, towers, blacksmith, and church, this map basically give you your own little kingdom right off the bat. There are definitely much worse places to spawn!

Map: Cathedral Castle

\n\n

This gothic castle is any gamer's dream come true, giving off a vibe somewhere between those cathedrals from Final Fantasy Tactics and Zelda's Hyrule castle.

\n

It's not just for show either, as its filled with shadowy hallways lit by sconces with a lot of work going into the interior locations as well as the exterior design. Pop it on a hilltop and you've got a perfect home base.

Map: Leisure Castle

\n\n

Looking to get away from the angry zombies and creepers so you can take some time to relax and get away from the day to day workload of crafting a whole world?

\n

This leisure palace is the right castle for you, filled to the brim with gardens, viewing areas, and spacious rooms. This one's even got a big stone fountain in the middle (or as I like to think of it, a public pool they can't kick you out of).

Map: Castle And Gladiator Area

\n\n

This is more than a two-for-the-price-of-one map, as you don't just get the castle and the nifty Greek arena.

\n

Across this map you'll find a church, a fountain, an ornamental tree walking area (perfect for reflecting on the true nature of Minecraft... or plotting to overthrow your family's enemies), a light house, and even a ship harbor!

\n

The blue, green, and yellow color scheme comes together really well on this on as well, so its both structurally interesting and aesthetically pleasing.

Map: Peach's Castle

\n\n

Replicating existing famous game locations has always been a big deal in Minecraft (remember that massive two year project to re-create Final Fantasy 7's Midgar?).

\n

While some of them end being up more loosely inspired than meticulously recreated, this rendition of Peach Castle from Mario Bros. is actually pretty close to the source material... including the iconic flags.

Map: Ye Old Castle

\n\n

I like big flying buttresses and I cannot lie! This one's got 'em too, with plenty of design embellishments and hollowed out areas.

\n

Between the side courtyard, bridge connecting the main and side keeps, and the defensive towers, there's plenty to explore here and lots of places to expand upward or outward.

It's a little sparse on the greenery (I guess this castle desperately needs to hire a florist) but hey, you can't have everything!

We may not be getting that long-sought Super Duper Graphics update (bummer), but there's still tons to do with the ever-expanding Minecraft world, from exploring jungles to finding the heart of the sea and even building castles.

\n

Of course, building one from scratch is kind of a lot of work, so many players want to know where to find the best Minecraft seeds with a castle.

\n

Unfortunately, you can't just pop in a straight seed number a get you a castle to poof into existence. For large pre-built structures of that kind, you have to download a specific map, schematic, or project first.

\n

Here we're rounding up nine of the best castles we've found so far! Haven't downloaded other player projects to use in your Minecraft game before? Check out the full tutorial over here.

Amazing Builder Recreates Orgrimmar And Stormwind In Minecraft https://www.gameskinny.com/0hnt6/amazing-builder-recreates-orgrimmar-and-stormwind-in-minecraft https://www.gameskinny.com/0hnt6/amazing-builder-recreates-orgrimmar-and-stormwind-in-minecraft Wed, 31 Oct 2018 11:57:05 -0400 QuintLyn

It's not often that Blizzard assigns someone outside their own ranks a task. So,  when they do, you can be sure that person knows exactly what they're doing.

In this case we're talking about a Minecraft artist going by the name of Vale_Yard, who was commissioned to recreate the Horde and Alliance capitol cities from World of Warcraft in the popular block-building game.

After being commissioned -- and probably after getting permission from Blizzard -- Vale_Yard posted about the project on Reddit. There's a few things they didn't specify, like what exactly the project is for or how much they're getting paid, but they did answer questions from other Redditors you can see in the thread above. 

More recently, they posted timelapses of both builds. These are big builds so be prepared to set aside some time to watch.

Aside from what we don't know about the project, we do know it took months to do and that at present, Blizzard is considering eventually allowing public access to the map.

For those that are concerned with such things, Vale_Yard also confirms they're getting paid real money for their work and not just in subs or digital goodies. They also say there may be more video content coming later, but added that that's not a promise.

As for what the builds are actually for... That's anyone's guess. But considering BlizzCon is just a few short days away, it might be a good bet we'll find out then.

By RylandPlayzYT

Running and jumping across obstacles is fun, but Super Lava Run turns up the heat -- literally -- with flowing lava. Complete the jumps and you'll be safe. But fail or take too long, and lava will begin pouring from the ceiling, dooming you to a warm lava bath of death.

Play through 16 maddening levels in Defeat the Concrete. Although each level of this Minecraft PE parkour map is fairly small, this "rage-inducing" map will keep you trying -- and failing -- for a while. Each level consists of a different theme and presents a different challenge to overcome.

Map: Parkour Spiral

Parkour addicts can get their fix from Parkour Spiral, an extremely large Minecraft PE map that extends in a spiral high into the sky. As you make your way up the spiral, you'll encounter various biomes and terrains, challenges like insta-kill water, and, of course, plenty of jumps and platforming aspects.

All in all, this parkour map is a lengthy (some players report it took them over an hour to complete!) and challenging one -- but don't worry, a healthy dose of checkpoints along the way will help you progress.

Why? Because taming dinosaurs, that’s why.

Stranded Raft has multiple islands to explore, and includes a list of optional challenges to complete while you survive.

Coarse Sands by NEXAREUS puts you in a huge desert after a plane crash and tasks you with, of course, surviving. The difference with Coarse Sands is that it gives you a Thirst meter to manage, as well as forcing you to sleep at night or suffer negative side effects. Coarse Sands is also unique in that one of your objectives is to get rescued – if you survive that long.

Underground by MinecraftPG5 is exactly what it sounds like: you start underground, and unless you cheat, you’ll never see the sky. You have to mine your way through the dark, collecting resources and finding enough food to survive. Like other survival maps, Underground has a list of challenges to complete, some much harder than others.

Skylands by TheTobin1 is what happens when SkyBlock meets more complex Minecraft builds. Set on a large group of floating islands, your objectives are to explore the 13 large floating islands, as well as the 16 special islands that contain rare resources and the map's 2 dungeons, which contain dangerous mobs. Skylands also has shops to trade farmable resources for items normally unattainable within the map.

Chunk Error by HYDRO54 is a half-survival, half-adventure map with a quest to follow to escape the “corrupt” save file that created the cut-off islands in the map. The map puts you on a floating island to start, and each time you complete a quest, another island will appear. Chunk Error is a fun diversion from the usual survival map because it’s more guided than others.

Arctic by Icrafting breaks the mold for survival maps, basing your fight to live in an icy wasteland instead of the usual island. Arctic adds a layer of difficulty to the game by severely limiting the number of resources you have available to you. Like other survival maps, dirt is a premium in Arctic, and while the established buildings have numerous chests with items, you’ll need everything in them just to scrape by.

Eldaria by Aurelien_Sama takes the idea of a survival map and turns it into a beautiful, explorable paradise. Where other survival maps limit the resources you can obtain, Eldaria wants you to explore the massive area the author has created, gathering resources along the way. The island has several different biomes to explore (such as mountains, forests, volcanoes, and rivers), and the arching landscape is reminiscent of an exotic island paradise.

Survival Island by Ashien is the natural progression of survival maps. Like SkyBlock, you find yourself on an island, but this time you’re surrounded by water. Dirt is a precious resource on this map, as most of what you find will be sand. Like its predecessor, Survival Island gives you objectives to complete, like building an underground tree farm, a cart system, and gathering 10 diamonds.

SkyBlock by Noobcrew is the granddaddy of survival maps. Most maps that want to make your survival harder than vanilla Minecraft take their cues from this gem.

\n

You spawn on a floating island, with nothing but a tree, a chest, and the dirt blocks the island is made of. Using these, the map expects you to complete challenges like: build a house, make a wheat farm, craft a variety of wool, and build and light a nether portal. The map is challenging, but completing objectives gives a huge sense of achievement.

Minecraft has been around for a while, and the seemingly endless possibilities of the game lend themselves to ridiculously creative maps, mods, and recreations. This list of Minecraft maps gets back to the roots of the game: survival. Each map is designed to test your Minecraft survival skills, or give you a different locale to experience outside of the randomly generated terrain you usually see in Minecraft.

\n

Before we begin, here’s a quick tutorial on how to install these maps (on PC):

\n
    \n
  1. Download the map you want (links are on each slide)
  2. \n
  3. Open a file explorer window to your Local Disk (usually C:)
  4. \n
  5. Search for “%minecraft%” (without the quotes)
  6. \n
  7. Open the folder titled “.minecraft”, usually located in your AppData\\Roaming folder
  8. \n
  9. Extract the contents of the .zip file you downloaded into .minecraft\\saves
  10. \n
  11. Open up Minecraft and play the selected save!
  12. \n

Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most popular games of all time, with over 30 million copies sold and a thriving modding community famous for their amazing creations. The game's big, open world of high-fantasy and adventure has captivated players for more than six years and received a full remastered for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC known as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition.

That edition not only revived much of the core game's modding community, but also brought Skyrim to the attention of younger players who had only played more age-friendly titles.

Like Minecraft.

Having sold 26 million copies on the PC alone, Minecraft is an absolute monster of a game with an unparalleled fan base. Fan-made texture packs, skins, mobs, bosses, weapons, and enormous worlds have made the game the world leader in user-generated content creation. Millions of videos show avid players displaying their creativity and skill, and while it doesn't have the rich lore and world that Skyrim has, it has the capability of doing so.

\n

You just have to make it.

When is Minecraft Going to Die? https://www.gameskinny.com/h8ubw/when-is-minecraft-going-to-die https://www.gameskinny.com/h8ubw/when-is-minecraft-going-to-die Mon, 30 Jan 2017 07:00:01 -0500 Marc Anthony

Minecraft is a sandbox game allowing players to construct, or destroy, 3D textured blocks with pure freedom in a randomly generated environment; which could be altered with seeds or joined into specific worlds with people through their servers. The question is, will Minecraft ever die? The simple answer to that is...

NO IT WILL NOT

The franchise of Minecraft is too lucrative, as it is entertaining and creative, not to stay alive for generations to come.

*Actual picture of Minecraft's profit*

Minecraft has been a success since its origin. Allowing players to create whatever their hearts desire, whether it be in creative mode (with no material limit), survival (which has material limitations), and their various sub-genre modes. Minecraft is a quick and simple way for players to stretch their imaginations and build, destroy, and live in a game of vast options. Minecraft is one of the many games that offers this type of gameplay, but by far the most popular with its 3D textures along with their landscapes that draw audiences.

With a vast background of modes to play on, Minecraft adds diversity into its gameplay by not being solely a builder. It has a player take control of their own generated world and do what they want within in it, giving freedom much like open-world adventure where the replay value is magnificent and different with every spawn. Adding to this, with survival mode and its battles it gives real consequences to playing the game such as dying and not having items or permadeath, which will literally ban you from a server if set on. Freedom and depth in this way catches an audience and draws them to play for different reasons and create even their own games or challenges that the community in turn can redistribute amongst each other.

Another sole reason Minecraft will not die in a simple minded matter is the community itself. The simple fact that there are many children who are infatuated with Minecraft adds severe amounts of emotion to the mix, and development as gameplay progresses in real life; meaning as years pass playing Minecraft you will always remember it as you played as you grew as a person, it formed part of who you are today.

Several children enjoy building and continue to log in daily with their friends to partake in various activities. Due to this, children growing up will always remember Minecraft and come to return as older consumers that spread their knowledge of the title to others. This results in people only playing to make giant penis monuments; the basic symbol of teenage crafting (and I'm pretty sure we've all done it at least once). This generation effect will improve the popularity of Minecraft giving it even more excitement and adventure to its youth in addition to nostalgic factor to older generations who have played that will pass it on just as much as children.

It also continuously updates itself with new features and does not limit players because the game's design is based on the ability to create, which breeds innovation. The game itself, even without adding new features during a period of time, would still prosper as the core gameplay is always fresh and outstanding with no advantages or repetition to bore. Every time you log into Minecraft, the world is newly fabricated. Creations of your imagination with unique design will constantly make you want to continue building, innovating, or sharing content.

Finally there are some basic facts that show off the game's popularity and meaning to fans and its own strength as a sandbox game. Minecraft being a worldwide phenomenon, has it's own convention -- Minecon -- where many gather in the community to discuss builds, servers, and have a great time all because of this game -- they also get to see upcoming features, and craft amazing cosplay.

Minecraft is also a top selling mobile game and has done equally well with their own console versions. Popularity in the series and its lore gave us a Minecraft TellTale story series; however, not based on herobrine. Although the most crucial fact is Minecraft has sold over 100 million copies by the end of 2016, and with these facts the game shows no signs of slowing down.

Minecraft is a game of simplicity in this regard where the user makes their own fun of the game. So in retrospect, (this may be opinion) but the player ultimately decides if Minecraft is dead to them or very much alive and picking.

There are plenty of game titles that you think of when you think of Nintendo. Such include Mario, Kirby, Donkey Kong and even Zelda but you would be doing yourself a great disservice if you didn't mention PacMan. That's why included this epic game recreation.

\n

Creator Panda203 makes another appearance on our list with their ridiculous full scale creation of the classic arcade game and if we could actually play it, we would.

If you were to ever look around at Minecraft Nintendo creations, you will happen upon a bunch of Zelda inspired pieces but the Hyrule Castle created by Kezsonaj is just out of this world.

\n

Believe it or not, this creation is just one of several in a full scale Zelda project that took a year to make and we see why.

Old School NES

\n

In case you forgot what the NES looked like and didn't have the time to Google, Planet Minecraft user Bad Breaker created a pretty awesome replica of the special edition mini console.

\n

Not only did the create the console, but the controller as well. If that isn't enough for you they even threw in a life size game cartridge of Super Mario. Look at the detail on that label!

Admittedly, Chain Chomps are a pain in the you-know-what but when you're far away and have a chance to look at them, they're kind of cute.

There are so many classic and memorable scenes from NES games but hands down the challenging level of oil drums, barrels and fireballs from the original Donkey Kong has to be at the top of the list.

Nintendo is synonymous with our favourite red hat, overall wearing pixelated plumber so of course we had to include an epic pixel creation of Mario.

The console that started it all has dropped and if you're a hardcore gamer then surely you didn't wait until Black Friday to try to grab the recently released NES Classic Edition.

\n

At just $60 the miniature replica console was flying off the shelf and with good reason as the classic Nintendo is the hub for 30 of the most classic and retro games out there.

\n

If you're still looking to get your hands on your very own mini replica, today's Black Friday so hopefully you'll have a chance to grab one before they're sold out but until then, let's celebrate the awesomeness of the NES with these epic Minecraft Nintendo creations.

Now, this one is not for the faint-hearted. There is only one mode of difficulty in 5 Pillar Parkour – and it’s hardcore. The map consists of five 10 x 12 pillars that you must jump through or fall through.

Nothing says spooky when the only way to get to a mansion is a drawbridge that happens to be over neon orange water. Lava perhaps? Pumpkin juice? We'll never know, but we do know that creator ItzCharlie put a lot of work in creating this Halloween build. I just love the giant pumpkins just hanging around. The only thing that would have made them cooler would have been to see them lit.

Halloween Mansion

Utilizing the Dokucraft Dark texture park, Planet Minecraft user crazyeagle was able to make this awesome mansion. It looks straight from some graphic novel or the house in the movie that the character goes in despite you shouting at the screen that they shouldn't. While there is a pop of green, somehow it just makes the manor that much more spooky.

This attractive looking but scary haunted house comes to us by Team Vindicta.

The amount of details in the mansion is tremendous and with the dark textures and balance of elements it definitely deserved a spot on the list.

Grey skies? Check. Lightning? Check. Ominous big house at the top of a desolate town? Check. Ghost clouds? Or are those just huge ghosts flying over the town? Either way, check. I think with all those elements it is safe to say that creator bilZ nailed what it takes to creating a creepy Halloween town and haunted house.

There are too many places to count in the Halloween Town Night Before Christmas inspired Minecraft game that it was hard to pick a screencap.

How to Make a Minecraft Map for 1.10 https://www.gameskinny.com/pvm6c/how-to-make-a-minecraft-map-for-110 https://www.gameskinny.com/pvm6c/how-to-make-a-minecraft-map-for-110 Fri, 14 Oct 2016 08:15:47 -0400 Sergey_3847

If you’ve ever wondered how exactly people create and share those amazing structures in Minecraft, such as old castles, or even huge cities, then don’t look any further. This guide will show you how to build your own Minecraft maps in a few easy steps.

But before starting a map, you need to know what exactly you want to build. So first, try to imagine what is it that you want to build and share with others. It could be anything from a simple settlement to an entire survival adventure map designed for mini-games.

After you’ve done the preparation, you can actually start building your map.

Creating maps using Minecraft

  1. First, you need to create a new world and give it a title.
  2. Then, switch to Creative Mode in the Options menu and choose Superflat, as it is the most convenient way to build maps.
  3. Build anything you desire by using the default set of Minecraft blocks, or by adding texture packs with new types of blocks and tools, which are highly recommended, if you want to build something special.
  4. When you are done building, go to "C:/Users/[your username]/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft/saves" on your PC, and find the folder with your world title.
  5. Inside the folder you will find other folders and files that contain all the data of your world. However, you should not archive all of them for further sharing.
  6. The only file that should be included in your archive is “level.dat” and the entire folder “region” that contains data about your blocks. That’s it!

Now you can share your archive as a Minecraft world map with others online.

Creating maps using MC Edit

  1. Download and install MC Edit - an excellent tool that can help you build Minecraft maps much faster.
  2. Open Minecraft and create a new world with a title (for example, “New Map”) in Creative Mode.
  3. Close Minecraft and open MCEdit – you will see that your world will be automatically imported into MC Edit.
  4. Start building your structures using all the available tools of MC Edit.
  5. When you are finished, select the area you want to include in your map and choose “Prune” option from the menu – it will delete all empty and unnecessary chunks from your map.
  6. Press “Esc” button and choose “Save and Quit MC Edit.”
  7. Start Minecraft and open your world “New Map” – you will see that MC Edit automatically imports all the structures into your world.
  8. And lastly, in order to share your map with others, follow steps 4, 5 and 6 from the section above.

While many aforementioned mods are a bit dated, this map is just shy of a year old. It also has a pretty awesome storyline that you wouldn't usually expect to find in the world of Minecraft. In this map you find yourself having one too many beers and behind the wheel on a stormy night which leads you to crashing into a downed tree. Crawling from the wreckage you find a tunnel only for it to turn into a dead end due to an abrupt cave in. Your only way out -- Chartham Asylum.

As mentioned before, Minecraft has everything, maps included and while there aren't tons of up to date Halloween themed mods out there, there is a good helping of maps both new and old. But remember, just because this game is made of a bunch blocks, don't forget that blocks have corners and corners can be sharp especially if you take a sharp turn into the wrong territory. Or on the wrong map.

From haunted houses, Halloween towns and even asylums you'll find it all in the world of Minecraft and on my list of 6 Minecraft Halloween Maps you should check out this month.

Last time we looked into the best Minecraft castle seeds, and now let’s take a trip into some of the biggest fan-made cities in Minecraft.

This selection represents two styles of cities: modern metropolis and medieval towns. Some of these constructions have been inspired by the cities from video games, movies and historical places. Others are completely original and have been created using nothing but author’s imagination.

Golden Gate Bridge
\n

It wouldn't be a completed list of bridges without showcasing one of the world's most famous bridges, the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the world's most iconic bridges, so it only seemed fitting to add it to our list. Plus, it does look pretty cool recreated in Minecraft.

\n

\n

The Golden Gate Bridge can be downloaded as part of the World of Worlds project, which features buildings from New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Toronto, Paris, London, Madrid and Singapore to just name a few. You can download the pack completely free here.

Rail Bridge
\n

The Rail Bridge's primary use is minecarts, as they travel across the ocean to an adjacent island. While the Rail Bridge may look very complex, it is actually quite simple in design. Once you have learned the pattern, the next step is as simple as repeating the process until the bridge has reached land.

\n

\n

The Rail Bridge unfortunately does not have a download link, but according to the bridge's creator, PsElvi, it could easily be recreated in approximately 2 to 3 hours.

The Arch Bridge
\n

Part of the Adacia Collection, the Arch Bridge is a fun style bridge that has a medieval and fantasy theme to it. The bridge spans across a small river and features two large towers at either end of the bridge. These towers come in at approximately three stories in height and have a color scheme that couldn't fit the theme more perfectly.

Emperor Mel I. Bridge
\n

The Emperor Mel I. Bridge is a steampunk themed bridge that takes inspiration from smaller bridges around the world such as Budapest, Lubeck, Frankfurt and Vienna. The bridge was constructed by C_B_John and consists mainly of stone and brick. The bridge's dimensions are 44 blocks high and 195 blocks long.

Minecraft Mega Bridge
\n

The sheer size of the Minecraft Mega Bridge is astonishing, as it looks as if it has been created using a 1:1 scale. The bridge spans across a large chunk of ocean to connect to an adjacent island.

\n

At first glance, some may even think that the bridge is actually real.

KatariaWolf has once again made the list with his stunning design of Draco Bridge.

Draco Bridge is a fantasy and gothic themed bridge that comes complete with multiple, vastly detailed, dragon statues. Similar to the Water Temple Bridge, Draco Bridge is full of detail that you would never expect from a game like Minecraft.

Water Temple Bridge
\n

The Water Temple Bridge is one of the most visually appealing bridges I have ever seen created on Minecraft. The Water Temple Bridge is fantasy themed, and features a slight arch and multiple swirls for the bridges edging. While it doesn't look like it, I can ensure you that the bridge is indeed created in Minecraft and is a definite showstopper if you are after something that will impress your friends and family.

Return Bridge

The Return Bridge is absolutely stunning and inspired by the Chinese fantasy novel Xianxia. What makes this bridge so unique is that an entire town has been constructed on top of the bridge. These Chinese-inspired buildings flow perfectly across the entire top of the bridge with the buildings working to the bridges environment.

The Return Bridge was built by Icerabbit, who finished the project in September 2015. The sheer amount of detail that has been put into this project is amazing and it deserves to be on your list of must see bridges. The Return Bridge can be downloaded for free here.

We have all dreamed of being a master builder in Minecraft, or have at least attempted it to some extent. While some seem to make it look like a walk in the park, we all know -- especially from experience -- that Minecraft building really is no easy feat.

\n

If you are anything like me, you will often find that you will struggle to build even the most simplest of things. Bridges, at least for me, fall into this category. While I can say that I have built some decent-looking bridges, usually consisting mostly of wooden blocks, they have never reached the point of being worthy to show it off.

\n

But, let's be honest, this is usually just the easier option because it works... right? It just looks terrible.

\n

\n

Fortunately, there are some builders out there who can make much bigger and better bridges. Here are 10 of the coolest ones. May they get you inspired to build your own -- or at least download them and tell your friends you built it yourself!

Building in Minecraft is not only extremely fun but can keep you occupied for hours or even days on end. You will often find that once you start building you begin to add more and more to your once simple 6x6 stone building. This simple building will often end up as a monstrous mansion with more rooms then you'll ever need. 

\n

Whether you are a master builder or simply not that great -- like myself -- you will always find something creative to build within the game. However, trying to build something that looks visually appealing at the end, is not everyone's forte. 

\n

You will often find that building in Minecraft is a lot harder than you may think. People that create some of the amazing creations that you find on YouTube have spent countless hours that can range from days, weeks, months or even YEARS!

Building a house in Minecraft is an essential aspect of being able to survive the night, but they don't always turn out how we planned.

\n

If you are anything like me, your house will usually consist of wood, stone and let's be honest, a little bit of dirt. No matter how many trees and flowers you plant around your house, they just aren't able to save it from the monstrosity you have created. While you may not want to admit that you spent two hours building it, you still end up with something like this:

Minecraft Releases New Mini Game 'Tumble' Free For All Console Editions https://www.gameskinny.com/vvoou/minecraft-releases-new-mini-game-tumble-free-for-all-console-editions https://www.gameskinny.com/vvoou/minecraft-releases-new-mini-game-tumble-free-for-all-console-editions Wed, 31 Aug 2016 07:58:26 -0400 Angie Harvey

Mojang has released a brand new Minecraft mini game, Tumble, that is now available to download as part of the latest free game update for the Console Edition.

Based upon the community favorite mini game, Spleef, Tumble has been described as:

"A frantic competitive clash in which players destroy the very floor beneath their enemies’ feet, sending them plummeting to their doom."

Tumble will feature matches of up to eight players and will include two variants of the gameplay to choose from: one which allows you to launch snowballs at other players in hopes of knocking them to their demise, and the other allowing all players to wield shovels to speed up the gameplay. Each game will last for three rounds and take place on a series of semi-randomized maps that will all feature different layers of materials and hazards, such as TNT and slime blocks!

Alongside the free update, Mojang has revealed a brand new map pack for the Battle mini game that was released earlier in the year. The map pack can be purchased for $2.99 and will include three new maps: the colossal Caste, the incredible shipyard, and the terrifying Invasion. 

The latest update is available now for PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U.

Here is a huge map that includes both a Renaissance-era castle and a village that reflects the aesthetics of the medieval times. This Minecraft castle is made in the style of a guild rather than a defense fortress.

\n

The creator of the Ironwell, AlfansosRevenge, noted that this Minecraft castle seed is best viewed with the help of Ozocraft mod, which you can find here.

\n

Installing Ozocraft is not necessary; however, the blocks look much nicer and provide the right kind of atmosphere. You can also just use it as it is and apply your own texture packs to the map of Ironwell.

If you’re tired of the same-looking villages in Minecraft, then here is a great alternative – a medieval settlement with a huge castle in the center.

\n

The castle is beautifully decorated inside, too, with gorgeous red carpets and wooden balconies. There are several watchtowers overlooking the frosty plains biome and the village below.

Let’s get into some ancient times with this Minecraft seed! A wooden castle by the lake represents the medieval fortification that protects the water source, which always serves as the main route for transportation.

\n

This is quite a gigantic structure and can serve as a perfect ground for Minecraft mini-games. It has two sections: one is filled with villagers and the other is a battle arena.

This Minecraft castle seed is quite unusual and looks more like a royal palace than a defense castle. Despite that, it has four watchtowers and some strong stone walls, so that means building this castle out to something even more formidable will be a somewhat simple task.

\n

It's hollow inside and doesn’t have any rooms or furniture, so it can be used for arena battles, prisons, and so much more.

This seed a much bigger version of the medieval castle; it has three extra towers, an extra floor, and a bridge. The interior of this castle is made of wood with balconies and lots of rooms -- but there is still much space for improvement.

This Minecraft castle works great for survival mini games with your friends on a private server. It is huge, and even a large group of up to 8 players will have a blast playing in such an extraordinary environment. You can even easily build the castle out to fit a number of scenarios.

It could be anything, really: an extension of a bigger castle or even a whole settlement built around the original building. It’s your choice how you want to use this great Minecraft castle seed.

People from all over the world love creating incredible structures in Minecraft and sharing them with other players. Here, we present you with a selection of some of the finest fan-made castles in the game. You can simply enter the seed in your Minecraft account (in Creative Mode) and install the map that comes with each seed (here is a tutorial for PC, Mac, and Linux).

\n

When you install the map, you can use the seed to spawn near or inside the Minecraft castle. You can then change the structure or simply redecorate the interior of the castle to your liking. Also, there is a possibility of setting up a private server and inviting friends to play online inside the castle and seed of your choice.

\n

Note: These Minecraft castle seeds only work on the PC version of the game. We'll have to make a list for the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions of the game.
