I thought the map was fantastic. The pacing was really well done and some of the wools were pretty cool concepts. After a long while of a CTM dry spell, this map is really good to play for those craving CTMs as done years ago. I didn't have any difficulties aside from one I'll get too, suggesting that the emeralds were well placed and the nether star + the charcoal were adequately available to find (I stumbled upon the charcoal, and figured out the nether star because while I didn't spend time in the mines all that much, I knew where it was and knew it was unexplored.). Overall, the map led the player well, and it was an enjoyable playthrough.
The one issue with the map that I had was a completely unplayable nether. I was getting 8-10 seconds block lag, and mobs were immobile and no threat. The boss fight played through, with mobs failing to really defend the spawners as I chopped through them and ate the boss that was mostly stationary. I *was* in danger to the potion spawners, when they clumped up and all fell at once... gave me a scare the first time I was at 4 hearts. I wish that part of the map was playable though. :/
