I was told there is an end portal somewhere in the map, but after days of looking i have concluded that there isnt one xD Please tell me otherwise if someone else finds it. But if my conclusion is correct, ill just go into creative and make one.

CHALLENGE BLOCKS Survival Map - OASIS
A vast desert expanse... no animals, no water, no hope... BUT WAIT! You spot an Oasis on the horizon! Is it real? Or just a mirage?
A daring survival map with seemingly endless sands in all directions.
Limited resources - use them sparingly!
EXTREMELY dangerous at night. The flat horizon is designed on purpose.
It fills with monsters as far as you can see extremely quickly.
Get to safety or be prepared to be MOBBED!
How good of a minecrafter are you? Can you survive in this hostile environment and beat the desert heat?
Check out the Challenge Blocks in the game for a unique twist to challenges.
NOTE - This is a DIFFICULT survival map designed to challenge your skills at creating something from nearly nothing. It is not an adventure map (though it does have 1 or 2 little elements strewn about the scenery to give it character). I just didn't want to make another boring floating island type of thing. I wanted something different and unique for the survival genre.
This map has been tested and appears to wrok flawlessly with Minecraft 1.7.2. Please let me know if you encounter any issues. Thank you
Update! Map has been updated! Tons of new stuff! Change log below:
Added a few goodies hidden about. Nothing major, but does allow potentially for Wolves & Ocelots to be bred/raised as well as some diamonds, gold and other bits.
Added optional colored clay challenges and additional clay to help achieve these.
Added additional scatterd hidden ore veins to ensure all challenges could be completed (no longer relying on RNG to generate required ores.)
Replaced Pig Spawner with 4 spawn pig "eggs" (sorry guys the pig spawner was wayyy to OP for a survial map)
Bug fix - Removed a protruding block on 2 of the 3 towers that had to be broken to access the staircases.
Bug fix - Filled in an unintended empty pocket under a structure that was spawning creatures.
Additional minor adjustments and fixes.
Additional Challenge Blocks added.
Several Challenge Blocks changed/combined to reduce duplication and encourage survival & exploration.
Player now starts with a small journal (to set the mood) and a clock (helpful if you do not have a bed the first few nights).
Abandoned mine expanded ever so slightly to introduce players to one of the world secrets.
Variety of minor bug fixes.
Enlarged Fire Temple
Added a Water Temple (credit to angelorf for base design)
Added TWO large dungeons + 1 small dungeon
Added some additional challenges (with new blocks)
Bug fix - map now listed correctly as Survival in the save select menu.
No hacks or cheating!
This map was designed with vanilla rules in mind so try not to play with any mods that alter the game. Stick to visual stuff if anything at all.
Play on at least easy mode (designed with normal in mind).
Don't starve! Even if that means eating stuff you would rather not (zombie flesh, spider eyes, raw fish, etc.)
Don't kill yourself on purpose to renew your health or hunger bar.
You can tear down anything on the map EXCEPT the challenge blocks (unless you earn them of course - in that case they're yours for the taking! )
Challenge Blocks are a unique way in the game to track your progress. Each block gives you a challenge and when you complete it you may take the block. Some blocks are useful. Some are just trophies. Can you collect them all?
Don't spend too much time exploring your first day. Priority one is to be safe when the sun goes down.
Once you do have a base take a good look around. Everything is near the oasis. If you hit lots of cactus plants you have strayed too far. Best to go back (there's nothing out there but endlessly generated superflat desert)
Don't let all of your grass die.
Find out where that little stream is going...
Where are all the minerals? You'll need to dig. and dig. and dig. Desert is made out of lots and lots of sand.
So much sand... an endless superflat desert noooo!
Use your favorite resource/texture pack
Ohhh pretty sunset
Wait this looks bad...
This IS bad! Run away! Run away!
