    Pretty boring i would say. Too simple. Try to make something else than flat ground in boxes.

    How on earth do I play the farm survival map? I tried mining but there's only dirt, dirt and more dirt.

    I made it like that because there were some small caves that linked to the surface. It's only 12 layers, its always been like that.

    Okay without further ado, here's what I have to show for the past while.

    I present to you, Polly's Farm Fortress

    I started off in the the obsidian room, read the rules and the challenges and rushed out and grabbed the items in the chest. I quickly leveled the tree and planted all the saplings. I kept the wood for later and started mining a lot of dirt. I made a little mud shack against the wall to protect against the coming night. (Incredibly shitty picture but you can see it on the right)



    What I saw during that night:



    During the night I cowered in fear and made a craft bench, and constructed a few wood tools. The next day I set out for part of the map and made a little staircase going down to stone level (did not go outside bedrock wall). I went through a pickaxe and upgraded to stone tools, acquiring quite a few cobble in the process and luckily finding a vein of coal! After tending to my trees, I headed for the frozen river in a journey to acquire sand for windows. I blocked off a section of the river and the water in it, and mined the content's sand. I went back to my shitty (literally) looking shack and tore out the dirt walls, expanding it a little with cobble. It was about this time night fell. I made a furnace and smelted the sand using some of the coal I discovered earlier and made windows for my house and quickly made torches with the extra coal and some charcoal I made from the wood. All this while, grass was growing a tremendous rate. I hadn't yet planted my single seed, but kept in a chest with some other valuables.

    My tree farm grew quite big all this time, and I hunted out fallen skeletons in the morning for bone meal to accelerate their growth. I decided to use a large amount of wood to create a fence around my house and on the roof, and make half blocks to prevent spiders from accessing my roof. This took a few days of work to collect the wood and make it into fences/half blocks and place it on my fort. After that was completed, I ripped out the shabby mud floors and replaced it with wood to ease the pain on my eyes. I ventured around the area and found a patch where a lot of grass had grown in the opposite corner in a tundra biome. I saw a sheep! Then subsequently killed it and luckily got 3 wool and made a bed for my fortress.

    Here is the fortress as it stands currently, I will get started on the wheat farm very soon, and it will be a large one! I will also expand the mines below and search for iron and more coal, and probably diamond while my crops are growing.

    It would be nice if the map had some hills and a lake, not just a river crossing it

    Why would it have hills and a lake? It's supposed to be a farm map so having flat land and a river for irrigation makes sense.

    Well, I like the concept of of the farm map, maybe spice it a little? Like you need to use your shovel to make the the soil flat so you can farm there

    Hm not bad. Maybe the challenge is to start in the house, make some tools and a little dirt shack, then clear the hills and make farmland?

    I like the idea of making a huge farm, harvest moon style. Will try this map later.

  18. Post #58
    Thank you all.
    I feel like this map is being revived, very slowly however.
    Either way, thank you all.
    And to nukle?? Well, it was meant to be flat I guess for the challenge, because if it was all grass, it'd be too easy at the start..
    If I made it into dirt, it would look odd and probably be annoying, that is why I made it flat

    Edited:

    I don't get why my map was rated dumb, seems sorta odd.

    Ok so, you placed 4 walls of bedrock, placed some dirt on top layers and tell us it's a map you made, and want feedback about it...

    I was about to say that. Danke.
    Honestly if you have nothing good to say don't fucking say it until you've AT LEAST played the map.
    And if you've played the map don't be so damn ignorant if you don't find it appealing to your liking. Give me tips on what to do, suggestions, what to improve, etc.
    Don't just say "this map sucks you suck you should quit mapping kthnxbye".

    You'll probably get a bigger following on the MinecraftForums. I'll have to try the Farm map out sometime though, I like that idea.

    I've got a posting suspension on the MCForums
    Today there's been two maps that look like rip-offs of mine, yet they get more feedback.
    And I've been updating since 1.3_01, I don't see much people updating their maps for that long either.

    The MC Forum thread is on 6.0, and I can't update it until the 5th.
    And +, It's only about 2-5 new posts until the thread dies again.

  32. Post #72
    Yeah okay guys I'm not going to update my map anymore.
    unless this gets revived somehow and not die after 2 posts.

  34. Post #74
    Well only one person ain't really going to help (not trying to be mean)
    No one posts feedback, suggestions, or anything.
    So it feels like it's just dead when it really isn't.
    If people posted more it'd feel more like that it was more-so alive.
    Like 4 people did lets plays on my map, most stopped on 2-4th episode.
    That was a while ago, no one is doing lets plays on the newest versions either.
    Their lets plays were all on version 2, from like April, or May.

    Edited:

    Also, if you want to see what I mean when I say that the MC Forums is about 2-5 posts then dead, here's the forum thread
    I'd update it to 7.0 but I can't since I'm on a posting suspension which ends tomorrow.

    The no-sunlight map is worth a try. It could make some good lets plays.

    Bit of a bump, but map is officially dead.
    unless it gets a big revival it aint going to be updated ever again
    or if I get bothered to.
    who knows.
