Why are you enchanting sword?
If you don't want to waste diamond enchant books.
If you don't want to grind so long make better mob farm. (enderman farm?)
What kind of grinder do you have?
1. Because regular diamond swords are not that great. EDIT: (or you may be talking about silk toutch for cobwebs)
2. One of the reasons I thought of this was because books are tedious and take forever to get the enchant you want.
3. Even the most efficient farms are still over 10 minuter per enchant, I don't think people want to AFK at their farms regardless just to get enchants they don't want/need.
4. I use a high efficiency duel cave spider grinder. It is located directly beneath my base.

Actually, this isn't such a bad idea! It definately needs some fine-tuning and maybe the level requirement should be higher. Maybe allow more than 30 levels to be spent for higher chances?
I'm sure this is end-game enough to be not too OP, but balancing this is going to be a pain. The XP costs should be quite high. Perhaps 130% of required XP in a normal enchanting table gives you 50% chance of getting what you want. Every additional level put into it grants another 1.5% chance. That way it still costs loads of XP but you'll be sure of what you get so it'll be worth it in the long run. I guess if you have XP farms it's not too hard to get up to a reasonable level.
EDIT: To make it a bit more tedious, when using this table you HAVE to use all of your current XP. You can't just use a part of it.
I like your idea for things to cost more xp. Probobly will add it to the first post, giving you creidit of course.

I don't want things with auto or advance in minecraft, because I want the things with hardwork.
When you say hard work, do you mean tedious and boring work? Isn't there enough of that irl.

I need silktouch for a sword, to farm cobwebs. Guess what i am because the books? Right! Annoyed!
In the time it took me to get silk toutch book, I enchanted over a double chest of books, using a duel cave spider grinder, 20 minutes per level 30 times 56+ books...
Aug 3, 2013Posted in: Suggestions
Currently the enchants are completly random from the pool of available enchants for the tool/whatever your enchanting, up to 3 enchants at one time.
For the books its a little different.. They have the whole pool of all enchantments available, up to 1 entchant on one item.
That makes them unreliable and cost inefficent as they still need the same exp to enchant + additonal exp to add it to a tool.
Enchanting definitefely needs some work, thats why i like your suggestion.
The amount of time I have spent trying to get unbreaking books for my armour and weapons in absurd. It is so difficult to get specified books, one of the reasons I thought of this. It is a 1/20 chance of getting unbreaking III in a book with level 30. Enchantig can sometimes fall under the catagory of annoying not difficult.
Aug 3, 2013Posted in: SuggestionsQuote from alexfig88
Maybe one thing to balence it a bit more-if you select more than 2-3 enchants, you have 10% LESS chance than the normal chance. So if you selected Sharp 2, fire 2, smite 1 with 25 levels, you would normally have maybe a 60%-70% chance, so it would go down to a 50%-60% chance. Just a thought, but I do love the idea. Support!
I agree with your statement about balancing. As I am no video game designer, the balance of this is probobly very off from what it should be. There would probobly be a formula to determine the odds, similarly to the way anvils work. The main thin I am proposing here is the concept of having a realistic chance of getting good enchants without hours of endless grinding.
Aug 3, 2013masterzminer posted a message on Mapmaker Tools - An expansion on the Attribute System! (NBT Tags)Support, with all of the new mapping features coming out, I have been messing around with custom items. For many of my ideas to work, I need potion effects to be added to the player while the item is beeing used. There are so many things this would open up for items. Great ideas!Posted in: Suggestions
Aug 3, 2013Posted in: Suggestions
except that you have to grind 2 days long for wither heads...
Its a nice idea tough!
Yes I am aware of the grind with wither skeletons. However, the amount of time I have spent getting xp compared to the time it took to get 2 nether stars (beacons)...
I would say it is worth it in the long run.
Aug 3, 2013Posted in: SuggestionsAdvanced enchanting tableWe all have went through it. You finally got to level 30, you walk over to your enchanting table with your fresh new diamond sword, and… knockback II. RAGERAGERAGERAGE! Then if you need an actual enchantment you go back to your grinder (The irony is I am AFKing at one of my grinders as I type this) and you AFK for, probably about 20 minutes to an hour? Isn’t that just fun, waiting for a grinder, or spending hours mining quartz, or just waiting for your level to go up over time, only to get knockback II on your sword or something just as bad? I say no. My suggestion is not to decrease the level amount, but to allow it to be much less of a grind to get good enchanted gear.
Crafting the advanced enchanting table would require many difficult to get resources that would make it a very end game item. It would be crafted with diamond blocks, obsidian, a book, and two nether stars. It would look like this:
Using all those resources would make it be very difficult to get. Because of the fact that you would have to fight the Wither twice, you would practically require potions, high level enchants, and a long time spent in a world. However once this item would be obtained getting enchantments would not be completely trivial. This would be because of empowered books.
(Please note: This was added after the initial post of this suggestion.)
What an empowered book would be is a nonrenewable power source for the advanced enchanting table only. To craft them it would cost one diamond, one gold ingot, six blaze powder and one book arranged like this:
They would be nonstackable and would have the appearance of an enchanted book, but with a red cover.
They would each have four durability, and could be combined in a crafting table, but only to add the durability together, NOT to add extra durability. They could also be crafted into books of one durability (4 durability = 4 empowered books with one durability each). To use them you put them in the six designated spots, then when you go to enchant, all of the empowered books you put in will be used up, and if you had enough empowered books for that enchant, then you would get it (assuming you put in enough Xp). If you didn’t put enough in, you would get nothing.
What this would do is rather than AFKing you would be doing something, that may be tedious work but, it is not simply AFKing and not actually doing anything.
I have never been a good drawler, so I can’t make a 3D picture of it. But tt would look like half of the table on the bottom would be obsidian, the other half would be diamond in the middle, then bright white on the sides of the diamond. Then a book on the top.
Here is a basic picture of the GUI.
The way the table would work is you put your item in. Then depending on the item, all the valid enchants would be shown, defaulting to level 0. Then if you click on the enchantment, it would bring the level up by one in the display (not on the actual item) (also the enchants don’t go higher than the normal cap). Once the maximum level was reached it would cycle back around to 0. Then you would select the amount of levels you are spending into it. The amount of bookshelves around the table would rise the max amount of levels you could spend. The number of bookshelves to spend fifty levels (not thirty) would be twice that of a normal enchant set up (thirty bookshelves). Once everything has been selected, all of the levels you put in to spend would be taken, and if you put in enough levels, you would get the enchant, (assuming you had enough empowered books) and if you did not spend enough levels, you would not get the enchant, and still have the levels taken.
1. Diamond sword
Enchants: Sharp 4, fire 2
Levels needed: 28
Total empowered book durability: 12
2. Iron Pickaxe
Enchants: eff 1
Levels needed: 2
Total empowered book durability: 1
3. Iron Pickaxe
Enchants: eff 1, unbreak 1
Levels needed: 5
Total empowered book durability: 2
Enchants: Power 3, punch 1, flame 1
Levels needed: 26
Total empowered book durability: 6
5. Diamond Helemt
Enchants: Prot 4, resperation 3
Levels needed: 28
Total empowered book durability: 13
Enchants: unbreak 3
Levels needed: 18
Total empowered book durability: 2
This idea would make enchanting much less of a grind, making it more practical to get the enchants you want without having to constantly enchant more and more things until you get what you want. This would also be an intended convenience for end game players.
Jul 31, 2013Just finished playing. Best puzzle map ever! After playing the first one I enjoyed all the look backs at the first one and how you aranged the map. knowing all about the new mapping features myself, for me figuring out how you did this, or how you did that, was yet another puzzle! Great job on the map!Posted in: Maps

Wow, I love the use of the hard clay as a base block - makes a change to everyone's smooth and sandstone usage! Definitely gonna keep an eye, looks promising so far
I have seen very little use of it. The second the block came out I knew I wanted to use it forsomething like this. The fact that I can change the color of the stone adds a lot of diversity in the looks, so I can lean away from a moncromatic map.
Jul 31, 2013Posted in: MapsTo VentureA CTM Series by masterzminer
News (February 25, 2020): I finished my developer commentary for Whirling Phenomena and made a compilation type video out of it. You can watch me suffer through the map here:
Link to the compilation:
What is a CTM map?
If you have never heard of a CTM map, it is, in a nutshell, is a map where there are a number of goal items (Most commonly the 16 colors of wool and 3 material blocks, I used this style) throughout the map. Your goal is to bring them back to a monument, and once you have all of them, you have completed the Monument. Thus where the name CTM comes from. The catch is, the goal items are in hard to access places, guarded by monsters, traps and other hazards.
The CTM genre originates from Vechs. Originally made as difficult survival maps, eventually adopting the goal of completing a monument, I have played many of Vechs’ maps and wanted to try out making maps of my own.
If you download my maps I encourage you do an LP if you are an LPer, and give me any constructive criticism or compliments you feel necessary. Also I may comment on the video, the username is masterzminer.
Multiplayer:As of right now all of these maps are created and balanced around single player. Playing with multiple players will likely throw off the balance, however there is no problem with playing these maps in multiplayer as you would for any other map.
Minecraft version:Each map has a recommended Minecraft version to play on. You do not need to play on that version, however the map may not work as intended if you do not. If you play the map on an old version, the map will almost certainly be broken and unplayable. If you play on a later version, there is a chance the map will break, or new features may throw off the balance.
1. Click on the download link
2. Click download
3. Wait for it to download
4. Unzip the folder
5. *Place the map in your saves folder in .minecraft
6. Open up minecraft and you should find the map in your worlds list
* To get to your .minecraft
1. Press the home button
2. Search for run
3. When a box appears type: "%appdata%";
4. Press enter
5. You should see a folder called .minecraft, click on it
6. You should see a folder called saves, click on it
7. That is where you paste the map
I will put an intended difficulty for each map. The rating is from 0-5, 0 being no real challenge, 2.5 being average difficulty, and 5 being romhack.
My Standard Rules:
1. Find and complete the Goal Monument to win
2. Find wool in chests/Fleecy mob drops. Don't use string/dyes/sheep.
3. You can use string/dyes/sheep for non Goal monument uses.4. You cannot use villager trades to get wool for the Goal monument.5. You may craft the material blocks for the Goal Monument.
6. Survive in anyway you can think of. You can mine/craft/build whatever you want.
7. Use at least easy never peaceful.
8. Do not move, pick up, or craft enderchests. You may interact with preplaced ones.
9. Do not make nether portals, you may relight portals that you found lit. (This rule is for maps where I use the nether)ORYou may make a nether portal at any time. (This rule is for maps where I do not use the nether)10. Do not try to bypass bedrock/barrier walls.
Now for the maps!

Map #2: Whirling Phenomena
Map Style: Linear Branching
Description:Venture through a massive and dangerous world. With its large variety of areas, ranging from deep dark caves to open to sky oceans to lush forests, to a fiery domain there is plenty to explore and discover. This map is designed to be taken on with a slow and methodical playstyle. It should prove to be a long rather challenging map, and should in general lead to a very long play time.
WARNING: This map is bad, and ridiculous. I'm mostly keeping it here for completeness, so if someone wants to download it, they can. Don't go into this map looking for a good time.

17. Decreased the amount of redstone objects found in intersection 1 loot chests
18. Added multiple rail lines throughout the map, to help reduce build time
In Beta 1.2:
This version focuses on rebalancing the starting area and first intersection making it less ridiculous, most notably honeypots in all the starting areas, and making an area more bearable on lower end computers
1. In surface blast, added honey pots to reduce natural spawns by a notable amount
2. In surface blast, significantly reduced the amount of silver fish blocks

This version is a hotfix for an issue caused by 1.11
1. In sabbia tombs, changed all the husk spawners to zombie spawners, as in 1.11 husks can only be spawneed from spawners open to sky
Map #3: Isolation
Map Style: Open world
Description:Enter a large island with a variety of environments, ranging from jungles, to desert, to ice plains, caves, and a unique nether. With natural regeneration disabled, this map will change the way you have to play, but includes several mitigating factors for the lack of natural health regeneration, such as he monument acting as a healing center, or mobs dropping healing potions. This map is not meant to too hard, but still provides a reasonable challenge. This is my first open world map, and focuses on exploration and survival.
Another note:With this map, I took all of the feedback I revived about Whirling Phenomena to heart, and made large efforts to fix those issues for this map. The lack of natural health regeneration causes every enemy to be dangerous, and as a result, especially early on, there are far fewer enemies, and custom enemies are more powerful themselves. This attempts to fix the absurd mob swarming in Whirling Phenomena. The dungeons in this map focus much more on smaller details, and are not needlessly long, which was a huge issue in Whirling Phenomena. Loot chests should also feel more rewarding, as the items found in them are generally more powerful than the ones you can make yourself, and some of the items cannot be obtained any other way.I am aware that Whirling Phenomena has a very large number of flaws, and I tried my best to make this map learn from the mistakes of Whirling Phenomena.
