A few highlights from my completed rooms.

I will share new rooms as they happen.

I had to do an ice-based jumping puzzle because they’re almost obligatory in Minecraft adventure maps.

…of course, if the player melts or breaks the ice, the whole set-up is ruined… And monsters float.

This room's about making bridges

World holes do happen in single player

The bonus room in the chamber of doors.

One Mayhem insisted on...

...turn on the lights, monsters happen!

Progress at last!

After one computer broke down, got replaced with another [Best. Easter present. EVAR!], had the data transferred, re-set up Minecraft, had that holiday in Thailand, and figured out how to install an old save… I’m back in business.

Hu-freakin’-zah.

I know, last time I posted about this, I swore I’d never talk about the sewer level again, but whilst I was making the area level, some mob tripped the circuitry off and

Last of the sewer level pix, I swear.

The finishing touch on the third floor is an array of randomly flickering lights in the ceiling.

Three concentric redstone repeater circles make a random signal generator. The rest of it is to take the signal to the lights.

When I finally moved on to build the next chamber, an asshat mob went and stepped on the triggering pressure plate, and damn near killed my computer. I’ve stopped all the circuitry, but

I’m taking my time with the sewer level.

It’s almost a month later, and I’m still working on this thing. As I write this [24 Mar] I am STILL stuffing dispensers with brownish objects and occasional representative junk.

And by “representative junk”, I mean: leather for dead animals, raw fish for fish, empty bottles, string, lilly pads, grass, iron fences, gravel, slime balls and pieces  of paper. Because it’s not just poo

More progress pix on my adventure map.

Slowly making my way back to the part where I was starting to desperately need math from Mayhem’s teacher. I haven’t taken any of these pix recently, ‘cause I’m still working on the sewer level a week later 9_9

It’s really complicated to make a sewer level! I’m still working out where to put all the dispensers and whether I should make another

I call this one the “mining chamber” and tried to create a labyrinthine cavern of twists, turns, nooks, crannies and, of course, mine-ables.

And lava.

Can’t forget the lava.

As you enter...

The obligatory switchboard.

Somewhere near the middle...

Reasons why I want user-controlled spawner blocks, even if it’s just in creative mode:

1) Squids de-spawn when you’re not looking at them
2) I want a room full of squids
3) Even if I add a cubic metric butt-ton of them before the last save, I’m scared they’ll go away before my adventurers get there
4) There are other creatures I want in my chambers that de-spawn at the slightest provocation.

More pix from my project. Yes, I am rebuilding all of these. Especially the sewer level. It was fun.

More pix from my project. Yes, I am rebuilding all of these.

Especially the sewer level. It was fun.

The menace dispenser in the bonus room.

My excuse for building a sewer level

One caution sign

And another. All poo is simulated.

It's supposed to be full of silverfish

Upper level of the sewer level

Some chambers are more open

...or empty

...or minimalist

This one's full of snow

Just a few pictures of the alpha draft rooms. Each room has a math puzzle to solve, except the obsidian pyramid, in which you have to literally find the answer before lava completely covers the interior of the pyramid.

I’m so nasty, sometimes.

I need placeable, programable spawners

You have to cross the corridor

Obsidian pyramid. Contents can be lethal

A happy sun on the wall

...that watches you

And the door just shut behind you...

It's a long way
