    Again, We didn't really do much outside of open the first chest but it did put us off. perhaps we will try it out again and see how it plays!


    I definitely wouldn't judge the entire map based on your experience with the first chest haha



    I am currently planning a few minor additions to further support multiplayer play, including additional items that can be shared. Stay tuned.

    It seems everything in the map was made for single player, there is only a single chest with items for 1 player; after that the friend group didnt want to play anymore so we didnt get any further than that.


    There is only one of each puzzle item, as I said the map was intended for single player. Everyone gets their own ender chests and can explore individually and solve puzzles on their own, acquire their own weapons and currency.


    Progressing to certain areas require specific numbers of items, I'm curious how you think I should've handled loot chests where you need exactly two of one item to progress. Are you suggesting I eliminate chests entirely and make them all /give @a commands? That seems game breaking to say the least.


    Still, I appreciate your feedback! The map works very well with two players, as the dozens of previous let's plays have shown.

    you need to make the starting button tp all players; you need to change it so u dont need to unzip the texture pack


    Done and done. Please let me know if you encounter any issues in multiplayer, as the game was tested in singleplayer for the most recent update.

    Resource pack updated, there will be more updates including an original soundtrack made by myself arriving in the coming days. This has no effect on the map and therefore can be redownloaded separately later with no adverse effects on existing saves.



    Cheers!

    THAT'S RIGHT.

    known bugs


    - A line off the bottom of one page in the book MANUAL is cut off, will be fixed Removed

    - Some people are having problems trading with villagers, I believe it is due to this bug in MC that prevents trading with custom named villagers after dying. Leaving the area and coming back should fix this problem, but I will probably just summon the villagers without custom names if this continues to be an issue Should be fixed in 1.6

    - If you are running an old version of the map, if you set your render distance very high, you may experience issues stemming from redstone in normally unloaded chunks, like your enderpearls randomly vaporizing. Keeping the render distance low (this game recommends 4-7 chunks anyway, just for fogginess) should prevent this.


    download

    rules:

    - this game is meant for singleplayer and works most optimally this way. Will function ok in multiplayer in theory. If hosting on a server, make sure to have command blocks enabled, otherwise some things will not work. Try not to wander too far from one another to prevent the wrong command blocks from activating.

    - play in 1.15

    - play in adventure mode on normal and 4-7 chunks render distance, 3 for a more spooky experience (recommended: headphones, dark room, moody lighting, resource pack enabled, max particles (important), max smoothing)

    - no mods or commands are allowed besides minimap mods

    - no glitching or water scaffolding (shouldn't work anyway), but feel free to go anywhere you can reach.

    - currently, all levers are CanPlaceOn end stone, but they are all labelled appropriately, so do not use them on other doors. I plan to eventually have them all be different blocks but there aren't too many levers as is.


    hints:

    - this map is hard. I know. I designed it that way. Keep this in mind as you fail and blame me for making bad maps. All puzzles can be solved and many things can be accessed in more than one way, but challenge rooms and secret areas tend to be harder and more obscure.

    - read all books and signs. if you feel lost, look for signs or return to the place you last were

    - explore, explore, explore! Most of the world will reveal itself to those who travel beyond the beaten path

    - look for special items to exchange for currency, and shop owners to buy specialty items, potions, and more from

    - overall, just have fun


    EotMNG+ Bundle - download both map + pack (RECOMMENDED)


    Escape of the Mind - download map


    EotMNGplus Pack - download resource pack (WIP)


    I'm particularly interested in having long-form let's plays where people see what ending they get and strive for Completionist Criteria.


    COMPLETIONISM:


    If you can post video proof in the form of an LP of you acquiring all the side quest items (Or even most of them! You may have gotten farther than anyone else has!), your name will get a special thanks in the intro room to the map! Current reigning champion's head and their channel/page/whatever will be put on a lovely pedestal for all to see.


    SEMI-COMPLETIONIST CRITERIA (warning: contains spoilers) must do 3



    - find all of at least one kind of scavenging sand (Or half of each)

    - talk to a severed head, find another

    - complete at least one ending

    - find both challenge gates, complete one

    - complete one back roads puzzle area (Farther Back or The Woven Fields)


    COMPLETIONIST CRITERIA (warning: contains spoilers) must do 5



    - find all scavenging sands

    - complete three endings

    - complete all back roads puzzles

    - obtain a crossbow

    - obtain 30 mind shards

    - obtain an elytra

    - find six discs

    - print a manual

    - find a diamond sword


    COMPLETIONIST+ CRITERIA (warning: contains spoilers) must do all



    - obtain 50 mind shards

    - find all scavenging sands

    - obtain an elytra

    - trade with nine villagers

    - obtain a crossbow

    - find a diamond sword

    - complete all five endings or three endings and print a manual

    - imbue your armor


    More things to come! Stay tuned. Questions? Comments? Leave a reply! Bugs? PM me directly! Love you all.

    Sorry about the delay everyone! We are on track to release it tomorrow, 12/4 at 9:00 PST following some resource pack edits. I will likely have to re-upload the resource pack later with all the changes I want, but the map is done and I just need to throw together a fancy new forum page for it and get it all compressed and ready to download.


    Cheers!

    Aside from the newest snapshot breaking thousands of my command blocks, we are on schedule for the weekend of 11/30. This gives me some time to add a few more rooms and polish off some textures. See you soon.

    Hi yall just an update.


    Sorry for the radio silence, its been difficult to find much time for hobbies with two jobs and medical stuff going on. Frankly its a little discouraging, but I've finally been able to settle into a full time schedule and am able to find more time for hobbies and volunteer work.



    The design is still on, though updates have effected redstone logic in a way that will take some alteration. I ask you all to bear with me as I will do my best to not let you down. I'm very excited for it and more info will be coming soon.



    Thank you all, I very much appreciate your support.

    I see, thankya for the information ^-^ It will save me some time. As for teaming up for ENGINE, I would love to, altho my schedule is normally fully booked (With work and getting 11 videos recorded in 1-2 days).




    Yes, sorry everyone who is having issues! Some bugs have arisen with this map while cooperating with the newest version of the client, including the bow's enchantment not working. I assume this is due to new bow mechanics. When the new version is released (Engine), there will be a slew of fixes and updates. I apologize for my inattention to the map :( I have been so busy whatwith working two jobs and medical problems, etc.

    I will be positing updates when I know when things are progressing. I am still watching all LP's, they make me very happy so keep it up!



    Also shout out to giggitygeiger for being the first to strive for completionism! He may be the first to find himself on the hall of fame in the intro room to the map! Good job!!


    Also, I've taken it upon myself to fashion a new soundtrack for the map, featuring 100% original music by me so as to prevent LPers from having problems recording videos with music.

    It will feature music from projects I have done throughout the years, as well as some never before heard material.


    For my fans,
    Thank you for sticking with me, sorry I've been neglecting the map. It will be done soon, I promise :)

    Meanwhile, eerie ambient music by me to set the mood of the new soundtrack




    EDIT: Does anyone think that remixes would invoke Youtube's copyright wrath?

    HOME STRETCH



    The ENGINE arc is almost complete, now to amp up that hype train.


    Shout out to Giggitygeiger for his devotion to completionism; his thoroughness has allowed me to find and fix many of the situational and rare bugs still found in this map.


    Such things will be fixed in 1.7


    But enough about bug fixes, time to talk about content.



    ENGINE is a large project of mine, stemming from ideas I've had in the past and could not implement due to limitations of redstone, chunk unloading, etc.


    1.7 will bring a beta version of this area, which is endgame and requires items found about the world.


    1.7 also brings resource changes (Some of which are available already to download in the main post) and item additions, new core mechanics.


    Future versions: advanced load game feature with scoreboards, new redstone funkiness, etc.


    Now pictures

    The first video of many in a new LP! This LP is more like a walkthrough. I've played the map several times and I found a lot of secrets. There are plenty of spoilers in this series, so if you want to beat this map on your own, DON'T WATCH THIS SERIES. If you're having trouble with a certain part of the map, then feel free to consult my LP guide. The first video covers only the first two basic puzzles: the Maze of the Mind and the Ancient Locks. Hope you enjoy it!


    P.S.: FIRST YOUTUBE VIDEO EVER!!!! :D


    Thanks for the support and good job on your first LP :)

    I'm super excited to release this new content, and you're right in thinking that you'll need to have your own series just for it ;) the sheer size alone- somewhere between 1-2 million blocks added, is enough to make its own game. Just working on ironing out some bugs, I may just scrap it though and release a beta soon :P

    Hey are we allowed play this map as a co-op map? I know that it's meant for single player, but some let's plays have more than one person playing. Also, if anyone wants to team up with me and shoot for semi-completionist or completionist, message me so we can solve it together (assuming that co-op is allowed lol). I've played the map before, and I found a lot of secrets. So again, if anyone's interested message me :)



    While the game is made for singleplayer (And works best that way, some bugs may arise depending on how eager you are to break the game), you can absolutely play co-op and still qualify for completionism :)
