Custom maps are maps created by other players who can then upload the files online to share. You can then download these maps and play them. Note that this is not a list of maps; this just has suggestions of how to play and use maps. You can find a list of maps on other websites.
Before you can import a map, you will need to download one. There are many websites online for this purpose.
- Java Edition
Once you have downloaded the map, it should be in .zip format. Extract and copy the compressed folder. Next, start the Minecraft Launcher and click Launch Options on the top right corner. Select your profile and click Open Game Dir. The .minecraft folder should appear. Finally, paste the copied map folder into the saves folder and start Minecraft. The world should have appeared in your worlds list.
Java Edition, Simpler Map Transfer
After the map is downloaded, take the .zip file, and copy it. Now, go to the "Type here to search" area on the taskbar. Type Run, and write %appdata%. After You Find The .minecraft folder, go to the "saves" folder, and paste the world
- Bedrock Edition
Once you have downloaded the map, it should be in a .mcworld or folder format.
To import the .mcworld format on Windows 10, you should be able to double click the file to open it in Minecraft, the world will be automatically imported.
To import the .mcworld format on a mobile device, you should be able to click a share/open in button or double tap it to open the file in Minecraft, the world will be automatically imported.
To import the map as folder format for all OS, you will have to drag the world folder manually to Minecraft/games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds/ folder.
Playing the maps is the most fun part. Custom maps often have objectives and sometimes a storyline. They can be great fun and there are many types. Here are a few of the types, as well as some tips to completing them.
These are obstacle courses involving puzzles to complete. They might have a scoring system, such as chests hidden with gold. The more you collect, the higher your score. Here are some obstacles you may see:
- Redstone Puzzles. These will give you some redstone components, such as a repeater or two and some redstone dust, and ask you to rewire a door or something to open. Check the relative redstone sections on them in this wiki to find some tips on how to make the most of what you have.
- Mazes. Wander around narrow paths aimlessly until you see a door. Mazes can be very fun to play. At each fork, it may help to mark chosen paths with a torch to track where you have been.
Generally, these maps involve fighting and survival skills.
- Survival Maps. Like regular Minecraft survival, but with a twist. You may be in the clouds, have limited resources/space, etc.
- CTM maps. Short for "Complete the Monument", these maps are known to be very difficult. The goal is to complete a "Victory Monument", where you have to fill it up with wool, records, or some other type of items. These maps have many traps along the way.
- Arena Maps. These maps have stages and in each stage, you must fight a wave of mobs in order to progress.
These maps are for Player vs. Player. They are great if you get tired of fighting the same in-game mobs, since the AI can be very predictable.
- Race For Wool maps. This is when teams of four go into a lane and try to complete a monument there. They include dungeons and crossfire from the other lanes. This is a type of CTM.
- Capture The Wool maps. This is where people rush to the opponent's base and attempt to steal wool from a fleecy box (wool chest). They then have to return to their base. Can be played in small or large groups.
- Destroy the Monument/Core maps. Self-explanatory. Usually only played in large groups, sometimes up to 50v50.
Parkour means to jump over blocks. They are usually organized in stages. There are several kinds of jumps, ranging from corner jumps, S - jumps, and ladder jumps. These maps are a test of agility and timing.
These are maps with no real goal in mind. They often have stunning scenery or mechanics. The website Planet Minecraft is filled with these. They can sometimes have a purpose, like as a map for a server.
Complete a long and winding storyline. Often has lots of content. Sometimes puzzle, sometimes action, sometimes parkour. You cannot break any blocks in these maps, unless specifically told or allowed otherwise.
Generally an Adventure map with jumpscares and a dark/ambiguous storyline. Ghosts, past memories, death, and locked-in are common themes.
- Java Edition
For importing a map, you will first need to open the minecraft saves folder. This can be found by opening the launcher, clicking Launch Options, and clicking Open Game Dir. Once you are in the .minecraft folder, navigate to the saves folder and find the world you want to share. To make it easier to send to others, you will probably want to compress the folder into a zip file.
Optionally, you can also go to a site such as MediaFire or CurseForge and find their uploads screen. Paste the file in and follow the instructions. The Internet can now see your creation!
- Bedrock Edition
Exporting a map is easiest on Windows 10. In Windows 10, open Minecraft and click edit on the world you wish to share. Scroll to the bottom and click the "Export World" button and choose a location to save the .mcworld file to.
On mobile, you will first need to locate the Minecraft folder. In iOS, you can access this in the “Files” app in the "On My iPhone” or “On My iPad” or “On My iPod” category. Once in the Minecraft folder, you will need to go to "Minecraft/games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds/" In this folder, you can find all of your Minecraft worlds in folders with randomized names. It may be helpful to sort the folders by date modified.
Once you have found the desired world, you can verify its name by opening the "levelname" file contained inside. If you compress the contents of the folder (not the folder itself) and rename it to have a .mcworld extension rather than .zip, it should be easy to share and open in Minecraft.
Please note that you can also not compress the map and change the extension to .macworld and just share the world as a folder. But to import the map as folder format you will have to drag the world folder manually to Minecraft/games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds/ folder.
Large maps files can get very big, however there are ways to combat this by reducing the total file size. Keep in mind that every map will have a file size, larger maps much more so. It is impossible to get a map below 1kb, but some can be as little as 200kb. Note that this information is written for Java Edition and may not be the same for Bedrock Edition.
Removing player data
A lot of maps don't require prior knowledge of the player playing it before it is loaded for the first time, and most of the time the final release has no reason to keep old player data generated by the developer(s). If your map doesn't require any playerdata, such as someone's advancements, position, inventory, or otherwise player-specific data, you can remove the "advancements", "playerdata", and "stats" folders found in the root of the map folder. If your map has custom advancements, do not delete those. Only delete the advancements folder inside the root of the map. (.minecraft/saves/Map_Name/advancements, not .minecraft/saves/Map_Name/datapacks/Maps_Datapack/data/namespace/advancements)
Removing automatically generated files
Both session.lock and level.dat_old are files that are not needed to be packed along with the map file. You can safely delete both these files, since they will be regenerated once the map is loaded. You can also remove the "poi" folder, but this will incur a slightly longer loading time. The "poi" folder will be regenerated on map load.
Minifying JSON files
JSON is meant to be read both with and without newlines. We can remove all newlines that are part of the JSON file (be sure not to remove any "\n" inside strings!) to reduce its file size. You can also remove spaces between JSON values. Minifying JSON files doesn't save that much space since they are made of text. However, over a large number of files, the space saved could add up.
For example, the JSON:
can be shorted to:
Here, we remove the spaces and newlines between the "text", "color", and "underlined" values. Note that spaces inside the "text" string were not removed. The useless "", at the start was also removed as it serves no purpose. Some generators erroneously add that. The trailing space at the end was removed; however this might not always be wanted. Be careful when editing "text" strings. If your resource pack has a custom language file, you can compress that as well.
If you are using a resource pack, the textures and sounds can add a hefty amount to the package size. Compressing them or making sure they do not have unnecessary high resolution can help lighten the load.
- Compressing textures
A lot of textures can become very large without the benefit of improved quality. Some textures could be as large at 2048x2048 (almost 4K UHD) even if the player will never notice much difference. At most, textures should be 256x256 and they should not need to exceed this. Usually, textures can safely be in resolutions of 16x16, 32x32, or 64x64. Either way, try not to exceed 256x256, as this level of details is not easily be seen by the player. After finding an acceptable resolution, try using image compressors. These can sometimes reduce your file size by up to 90%, but may come at the cost of a loss of color depth (24-bit colors to 16-bit). This reduces the file size because there are not as many colors to store, but vibrant textures may become more "grainy", or "static-ey". If you still think there is data that can be shaved off, try removing all EXIF data from the image. Note that this will remove any copyright notes the image has (if any are present), and you may have to manually add credit (you should always give credit manually, but this is a legal matter).
- Compressing .ogg sounds
Ogg Vorbis is meant to reduce filesize, but sometimes just the format isn't enough. You can also reduce the bitrate of the audio or reduce amplitude and manually increase it with /playsound. You can also try mixing the track down to mono, meaning the audio will have 1 track, instead of 2. This can result in quality reduction if not done carefully. It is recommended to mix small sounds down to mono, as players won't have enough time to distinguish the stereo version from its mono counterpart.
Removing region files
This is not recommended for most users as it can delete parts of your map. Be sure to make a backup before attempting this; you never know if something might go wrong.
Before you start, it is recommended to read up on chunks and region files. As a summary, chunks are 16x16 regions of a world, and region files are a 32x32 chunks. There are 1024 chunks, or 262144 blocks, in a region file.
Use Dinnerbone's Chunk Coordinate Finder and input coordinates of a block in every chunk in intervals of 16. For example, find the chunk file at chunk number 0, 0 and then at chunk number 0, 32. Make sure to find the blocks in positive and negative chunks, too. Once you have a full list of chunks that you want to keep, make a backup of your current world. Once you've made your backup, delete any chunk files that are not in your list. For example, if your list contains the regions:
you would not delete r.0.0.mca, r.0.1.mca, r.0.-1.mca, and r.3.4.mca. Delete all other files that do not match. This will remove any regions that are unused which can greatly reduce the map's total file size.
Use This Tool To Create Custom Map and Banner Art In Minecraft FAST
If you’ve been playing Minecraft for a while, you’re probably familiar with how to create pixel art in the game so that it shows up on a Map. With a little bit of time, planning, and patience, you can create gorgeous looking maps using nothing more than the blocks in your inventory and a large enough space for your pixel art to show up on the map.
You can even using shadows and depth by placing blocks at different heights in order to create nearly-lifelike pictures to show off in your builds, like this train picture from u/Lord_of_the_villagers on Reddit.
“I built a train. On a map. In Survival.”
But today we aren’t talking about that tried-and-true (albeit slow) method of creating map-sized pixel art in Java Minecraft. In this tutorial we’re going to show you how to use the MC Map Item Tool from djfun to create your custom map pictures in just minutes, and this even works on Java Minecraft servers without any plugins or mods to download!
This is the method that I used to create the posters shown in the header image on this article, and I’ll definitely be using it more in the future.
Before you get started, you’ll need to have a few things ready:
- An Internet connection. Since this is a browser-based tool, you’ll need to be able to get online so you can use the website.
- An image you want to bring in as a picture. You’ll also want to know the dimensions of the image, and for best results make sure those dimensions are easily divisible into clean integers (1, 2, 3, 4…). More on this in step 1.
- The total number of Maps that already exist in your world. You can find this by opening your world’s folder on your computer or server, then going into the data sub-folder, and looking at the number of maps shown there. (Here’s how to find that folder)
This world has 166 maps, including map_0.dat
- A location in your world that no one will EVER travel to. Using a world border, you can make sure that you pick a coordinate that is outside of the boundary. More on this later.
Once you have all of those things together, you can follow the steps below. On first glance it might look like a long process, but we’re just being detailed here to prevent any confusion. Once you understand the steps, you’ll be able to add more maps in the future really fast.
Step 1. Prepare Your Image
If you want to have a great looking picture in your builds, you’re going to need to set up your image file properly first. You don’t want to place your picture down in the world only to find that it’s stretched, squashed, or cropped in some weird way.
We’re going to use an image that we’ve already set up and placed in the world as an example here. This Villagered poster will do quite nicely.
Also a shameless plug for a new 1.14 server coming soon.
Now, this image is already set at the correct dimensions. We know that we have a wall with a 3×4 area where we want the image to go, so we made sure that the image’s dimensions are at the same 3×4 ratio. Specifically, this image is 1,728 pixels (18 inches) wide by 2,304 pixels (24 inches) tall.
If you want to fill a 5×5 wall with one massive picture, you can follow the same logic. Get the image on your computer and using a tool like GIMP or Photoshop you can edit it to have the same 5×5 ratio. Something like 2,000 pixels by 2,000 pixels might be good, or even larger at 3,000 pixels by 3,000 pixels. Both of those will fit the same shape and dimensions.
Step 2. Prepare Your Wall
You may have already done this before you even started Step 1, but here’s a quick reminder: You’re going to need a wall with item frames.
Since our image is 3×4, We made a solid wall with 3 item frames going across, and 4 item frames going down. We also put glowstone behind the four corners, though you may want to put glowstone (or any light-emitting block) behind all of the item frames depending on the size of your picture. Without proper lighting, your final picture will look a bit pixellated due to the lighting differences from one block to another, so you might as well get that set up now.
Here’s what your wall should look like. Notice the glowstone, too!
Step 3. Prepare Your MC Map Tool Settings
Now that your image and wall are both prepped, there’s one last step before you can upload your image using the MC Map Item Tool. Head to the Settings page on that website to make any adjustments to fit your needs, but most importantly you’ll want to adjust the X center and Z center values.
You can copy these settings exactly as they are for this tutorial.
For our purposes, we have a world border set up in the world that has a radius of 20,000 blocks, so setting the X center and Z center to 999,999 blocks away from spawn will perfectly prevent anyone from venturing into that area and messing up the pictures. Set those fields to whatever number you’d like, and then click “Save settings” before moving on to Step 4.
Step 4. Upload Your Image
Alright, your image is edited, the item frames are in place, and your tool settings are saved. It’s time to start creating these map files.
Start by heading back to the tool’s home page and click the button to upload your image.
Step 5. Adjust The Size
Next you’ll see a page which has two dropdown boxes at the top, along with an example of your image and the settings you saved at the bottom. You’ll notice that your image probably looks squashed or stretched right now. That’s OK! This is just to show you that you uploaded the correct image.
At this point we need to change the two dropdown boxes to match the size area you set up in Step 2. Since our image is 3×4, we selected “3” for the Horizontal setting and “4” for the Vertical setting, like the image below. Once you’ve selected the right options, click the “Select number” button.
Step 6. Review Your Map Parts
The next page you’ll see doesn’t have any settings you need to change, but it does give you one last chance to look over your image and each individual map part before the files are rendered. This is your chance to see if the image will be skewed or squashed, if any of it looks strange after the colors are converted, or if a part of the image is missing. If so, you may need to go back to Step 1 and re-adjust your image to fit better.
If everything looks good, though, click the “Adjust colors” button to continue.
Step 7. Create The Maps In Game
Here’s where things might get a little tricky.
We know that the image’s size is 3×4. Well, that means we’re going to have 12 maps total that will be rendered using the MC Map Item Tool.
We need to create those 12 maps in the game before doing anything else.
If you’re in creative mode, this is as simple as grabbing an empty map from the creative inventory and right-clicking it 12 times to create 12 different filled maps with unique IDs. If you’re in Survival mode, you’ll need to craft the 12 empty maps and then right-click on all 12 of those to make them filled maps. It doesn’t matter what your filled maps look like. They can all be of the exact same area in your world. But you need to make them first before we can go further with the tool.
Once you’ve created your 12 maps (or however many you need), save your world or server and exit out of the world. Don’t go back in until we get through the next few steps.
Step 8. Tell The Tool How Many Maps You Have
Remember that total number of maps you found at the beginning of this process? Now’s the time when we’re going to use that number.
Go back to your web browser where you left off after Step 6, and you’ll see a question waiting for you to answer, “How many maps does your world already have?”. This field is where you put in that number we got at the beginning. For us, since we saw map_165.dat in our /world/data/ folder, we know that there are 166 maps already created in that world. So, we type in “166”.
If your world is brand new and has had no maps created yet, just set it to “0”. Once you’ve typed in the correct number, click the “Create file” button.
NOTE: If you type in the wrong number here, your picture will not show up in the game and you may even lose previously generated maps. Be careful to type the correct number.
Step 9. Download And Extract The Map Files
Finally. We’ve made it to the last step where we need the web browser. At this point the tool will give you a link to download a zip folder of your map files. Click on that to save the file to your computer, and then use a zip extracting tool (most computers have one built in by right-clicking the downloaded file, but you can also try 7zip) to extract all of the map files from that zip.
What you’ll end up with is a folder showing all of the newly generated map files, 12 in total if that’s the size of the picture you selected earlier, all numbered based on the total number of maps in your world set in Step 8. Here you can see I have maps number 166 through 177 all ready to go.
Step 10. Move The New Maps To Your World’s /data/ Folder
If you go over to your /worldname/data/ folder (here’s how to find that folder), you should see those same maps in there. These are the maps you created in Step 7, and do not match the maps you just downloaded using the tool.
Now all you have to do is copy the new maps you downloaded over to this /worldname/data folder and overwrite the existing files there.
Step 11. Place The Maps In Game
That’s it! You’ve now got your maps ready to be loaded in the game and placed on the wall. Log back into your world and you’ll see the maps that were in your inventory all look drastically different than before.
Simply place those maps in the item frames that you set up in Step 2, and your new picture will look beautiful on the wall.
Enjoy Your New Pictures
Want to add more custom pictures to your Minecraft world, or even give them out as rewards to players on your server? Just follow those steps for each new map picture you want to create, and you’ll have something in your world that is entirely unique to you.
One last note: Keep in mind that item frames and maps are entities and can therefore cause FPS lag if you have too many of them in a small area. Try not to make massive banners or your game could lag and even crash. Be especially mindful of this if you’re adding these on a multiplayer server.
Have you added any custom pictures to your Minecraft world? Why not show them off! We’ve got forums that you are welcome to join and post screenshots in, or you can hop into our Discord server and join us for a chat over there. Either way, we look forward to hearing about your creations in Minecraft!
How to create custom maps in Minecraft 1.17 version
One of the best aspects of Minecraft is the ability to create anything. Whether that's in creative mode or survival, players have been crafting unique and incredible creations for a long time.
Players have created Hunger Games maps, puzzles and all kinds of other maps. Many streamers and YouTubers use these for content too.
Creating a world and sharing it with others is one of the most rewarding aspects of Minecraft. Custom maps are some of the best and most fun worlds out there. Here's how to create one in Minecraft.
Minecraft custom maps
Minecraft custom maps can be anything the player wants. Many players typically create within several niches, like puzzle, action, PVP, horror, adventure, creative and parkour. Parkour maps have become popular among the voiceover community.
The first step to creating a custom map is to start a new world. For many different types, like parkour, puzzle, and PVP, players may want to have a flat world. Starting a world will allow the player to set the world type to either flat, infinite or old.
Flat will spawn the player into an infinite flat world, making building a parkour course a lot easier. For other modes, like PVP or horror, the "old" world generation setting is best because it severely limits the amount of space available for exploration.
Whichever type the players want to make is up to them. After that, all that's left is to start the world and create whatever they want. Whether that's a puzzle, a PVP arena, a horror show or a parkour course, players simply have to create whatever it is they want. The next step is to download and share the file. Players all across the world will then be able to access and play the world.
For Java, the process is pretty simple. Just open the Minecraft saves folder and find the world that needs to be shared. Compressing it into a zip file will make it easier for others to download. Sites such as MediaFire and CurseForge have servers to upload and download custom maps, and they can be stored here.
For Bedrock players, it's a little more hairy. Windows 10 is the easiest to navigate, as players will need to click the export world button on the world file. On iOS, players can access this in the “Files” app in the "On My iPhone” or related category.
Compress the file and rename it to a .mcworld extension. They can then find a similar site to upload to. The world then becomes available to everyone that plays Minecraft.

The best Minecraft custom maps
Looking for the best Minecraft custom maps to dive into for a blocky adventure? When it comes to new maps and builds, the sky's the limit for the Minecraft community. After a decade of using tools to build realms and scenarios, the standard of quality is pretty breathtaking, as savvy builders continue to compete and inspire each other towards ever-more inventive and visually impressive creations.
Some of these projects have been in the works for years, and alongside modding and texture packs, they allow you to constantly reinvent your game with new scenarios. It could be a multiplayer parkour map to play with friends, or a dramatic custom build that completely reinvents the realm you play in. Either way, there's plenty on offer if you're willing to go in search of it.
But there are years and years of good builds to sort through, and with new ones being added all the while, it's hard to know what's worth your time. Some of these classics have been out for the better part of a decade, while some have fallen out of fashion, or been taken over by new creators. So we took a look at the old and the new, and have compiled a list of the best Minecraft custom maps worth spending some time with.
How to install Minecraft maps
Luckily, installing custom maps for Minecraft has only gotten easier over time thanks to the dedicated Minecraft Launcher for the Java edition of the game. Navigate to the "Installations" tab and hover over any of the available game builds. Click the folder icon to open your Minecraft game directory and find the "saves" folder.
You should have downloaded a .zip folder for the map you're planning to play. Unzip that folder and add it to your Minecraft "saves" folder. You should now see the custom map in your singleplayer world options when you launch the game.
Pay attention to which version of Minecraft each map is meant to be used on as some may not function properly on newer or older versions of the game than they were built in. We've listed recommended versions for each of the custom maps in our list below.
Minecraft adventure maps
The best Minecraft adventure maps
Minecraft adventure maps come in all sizes, from giant standalone adventures to smaller quests. We've selected some of the newest and coolest here, along with some classics. Some will take you on quests based on other games, while others are entirely new adventures plotted out by their creators.
Version: 1.16.4 | Download
Drehmal is a huge survival adventure map with a ton of its own biomes and buildings, cities, and dungeons. The creators recommend playing on a small multiplayer server as many of the goals are designed with a small group in mind. It's an impressive undertaking full of little surprises to find as you progress through the game.
Blockarina Of Time
Version: 1.10.2 | Download
There have been plenty of attempts over the years to recreate classic Zelda adventures as Minecraft adventure maps and Blockarina Of Time is one of the most recently-finished of the bunch. It recreates all sorts of bits from Ocarina Of Time like the various dungeons, gold skulltula collecting, and racing horses throughout its main quest adventure.
Version: 1.14.4 | Download
Project Zelda is yet another recent project and, for a change of pace, this one actually doesn't recreate an existing Zelda game. Instead, Project Zelda has familiar weapons, puzzles, and sounds, but has created its own Zelda-inspired dungeons and story.
Metroid Bounty Hunter
Version: 1.12.2 | Download
Metroid is a series that has been seriously lacking in recent years, and it doesn’t look like that’s about to change any time soon. Well, at least we have Minecraft, and this impressive custom map based on the classic series. You have to fight your way through hordes of enemies using your trusty Arm Cannon to get credits you can use to upgrade your suit, your energy tanks, and even your weapons. It’s tough being a bounty hunter.
Payday 2: Endgame
Version: 1.7.2 | Download
People are so damn clever, aren't they? Just look at this custom map that features seven playable heists, over half of which are based on levels in Payday 2. It feels a little weird to be committing crimes while playing Minecraft, but hey, Steve has fallen on hard times. This is a great choice for those who love a bit of co-op play, so make sure to check it out if that sounds like you.
The Lost Potato
Version: 1.6.4 | Download
The Lost Potato is yet another classic Minecraft adventure map. You wake up in a prison cell, a classic game opener, but you're joined by a piglet who you need to save from execution. Along your way to find that missing potato of yours you'll do a bit of puzzling, some parkour, and other challenges.
Version: 1.6.4 | Download
Gloria is a brilliant bit of adventure map creation with some really innovative use of redstone circuits to support its questing system. The map is inspired by Lost, starting after a shipwreck and sending you to help out the survivors and work towards a mysterious facility.
There are plenty of puzzles to tackle and fights to be fought. The whole thing is presented beautifully with a great custom texture pack and a new soundtrack in the form of songs to play in the background (Minecraft adventure mapping is still delightfully crude).
Version: 1.4 | Download
Over the years, Hypixel has developed a number of maps. Herobrine's Mansion is a classic, which uses the legend of Minecraft's hard-to-delete spectre as the basis for a sprawling adventure through a haunted mansion. Inside you'll find tough mobs, custom weapons and a series of cleverly tuned bosses. Naturally, this makes it hard as all heck, and while it can be played in single-player, you're better off bringing a friend. If you need more, there's also the sequel Herobrine's Return.
Adventure Time Adventure Map!
Version: 1.4.7 | Download
Had this just been a recreation of the Land of Ooo, that would have been enough. Adventure Time: Adventure Map goes even further, with a mathematical challenge through Pendleton Ward's weird cartoon world. Across its many missions, you'll be given heroic quests pulled from episodes of the show, including They Went to the Nightosphere and Trouble In Lumpy Space. To really highlight the look of the show, the download also includes a texture pack. With it, Minecraft is transformed into an explorable cartoon full of colour, fun and giant candy structures.
The Sunken Island
Version: 1.2.5 | Download
You start The Sunken Island in the middle of the sea, surrounded by flotsam. So far, so Minecraft. Head away from that spawn, though, and you'll find a beautiful island full of mystery, oceanic waterfalls, and a really big mountain. Your job, aside from the usual task of survival, is to find the portals that tell the story of the island. Beyond that, your only other task is to marvel at this wonderful creation.
Minecraft survival maps
The best Minecraft survival maps
In Minecraft's original days, survival was the number one goal. After mastering the elements and your enemies though, survival becomes a given. Survival maps, on the other hand, give you entirely new challenges by putting you in weird and restrictive scenarios to see if you can stay alive. Prove your Minecraft mastery by surviving these challenging maps.
Version: 1.6.4 | Download
In Planet Impossible, you do your best to survive for ten days after your spaceship crashes on an unknown planet. Establish a camp, search the map for evidence of survivors, and study secrets, aliens, and dinosaurs as you explore this mysterious new world.
Version: 1.2 | Download
SkyBlock is a map that tests how well you know Minecraft. Like, really know it. Past the surface stuff down to its deepest quirks and idiosyncrasies. You're placed on an small, three block deep island in the sky. On that island is a tree and a chest. In that chest is a bucket of lava and a block of ice.
Not much, right? So build a Nether Portal. Or craft 10 Snow Golems, cook 10 fish, and any of the other challenges listed on the map's download page. It's all possible, but requires being extra careful that you never waste a block.
Version: 1.14.4 | Download
World generation is an intriguing part of any game like Minecraft, but what if you were there as everything started to happen? That's basically what this map does, though rather than it generating around you, blocks fall from the sky. That means you've got to keep an eye to the sky as you try to build your first piece of shelter.

Version: 1.2.5 | Download
Parkour maps are comprised of huge strings of jumping puzzles. They're either great or desk-thumpingly frustrating depending on your tolerance for losing huge chunks of progress after mistiming a ladder jump. Where most offer a long string of linear platforming, Assassin's Creep is an open town full of rooftops to clear and spires to clamber up.
Your job is to track down nine blocks of wool from the top of towers. But, as in the game it's not-so-subtly inspired by, there's also plenty of hidden feathers in chests about the map. Assassin's Creep comes with a custom texture pack to give everything that Altair feel.
Minecraft CTM maps
The best Minecraft CTM maps
Minecraft CTM maps stand for "capture the monument", a popular subgenre of adventure and puzzle maps. The original goal of CTM maps is to find and collect certain colorful blocks of wool guarded by various challenges and bring them back to a central area to complete a monument of sorts. Many CTM maps include a bit of everything: parkour, combat, and a bit of puzzling too. These are fun all around challenges to test your Minecraft mettle.
Version: 1.14.4 | Download
Why is Diversity such an impressive map? Because of how diver–, er, varied it is. It's a CTM—or 'Complete the Monument'—map, in which you add missing blocks to a central statue. In Diversity, those blocks are coloured wool, and each is found at the end of a self-contained level.
Those levels are fully realised challenges, and each takes the form of a different style of custom map. You'll find a "Dropper" challenge, a parkour course, a survival puzzle, and more besides. While none are as detailed as a good map tuned for a single style, the sheer breadth and variety is staggering. Not only that, but it's a great sampler of the different map types favoured by the Minecraft community. Download Diversity here.

Vechs' Super Hostile series is a collection of maps designed to make Minecraft hard. Really, really hard. Some are short on resources, some are full of traps, others are full of monsters. There's a wide variety of worlds on offer, from the giant trees of Canopy Carnage to the sparsely lit Black Desert. But while each map is themed around a different idea, they all have one thing in common: they want you dead.

Vales of Amoril is a stunning hyper-realistic Minecraft map, with snow-capped mountains, thick forests, and a whole continent for you to wander about in. No wonder, then, that it took four months to create. Explore its entirety and you'll see lakes, hills, rivers, as well as features inspired by real-life geology.
Version: Custom Launcher | Download
There's an unwritten rule in gaming that goes something like, "if it can be built, there'll be a Game of Thrones mod of it." Clearly Minecraft was going to have its own version of George R. R. Martin's oft-fatal fantasy. Luckily that version is breathtaking in its size and scope. If you need convincing, here's just a small example: the map's recreation of King's Landing features over 2,000 houses.
WesterosCraft can be accessed through a custom launcher that will do everything needed to get you into its immense map. Once there, you can visit a small town that acts as the central hub, imparting server news, setting build rules, and letting tourists portal to a multitude of the book/show's most notable places. You can even sit on the Iron Throne. Well, squat on the Iron Throne.
Breath Of The Wild
Version: 1.16.4 | Download
This extremely cool recreation of Breath Of The Wild's map is like a big open canvas for you to start your own builds on. It only includes the landscape of BOTW's map, not the cities, so you'll notice places like Zora's Domain are pretty open unlike in the game. Because of how huge everything is, the map's creator recommends you play this one with your render distance cranked up pretty high but it's sure worth it!
Version: 1.12.2 or 1.14| Download
This giant, glowing metropolis was inspired by Cyberpunk 2077's Night City but isn't a total recreation.
