    Hey there forum!

    I've recently finished my little RPG map, and hope to get some feedback.
    [​IMG]

    Story is rather generic. You play a simpleton who one day decides to go look for the legendary diamond told about only in stories.
    Your quest takes you from the great Terraland's skybridge, to the depths of the ancient jungle.

    [​IMG]

    Rules are simple:
    - Start with a brand new character.
    - Dump your starter pickaxe and axe in the first chest to your left.
    - No blocks are to be destroyed.
    - No blocks are to be placed.
    - You are only allowed to craft Flaming Arrows, if you have the materials.

    [​IMG]

    - Exploration is highly encouraged as chests are located everywhere you don't look!

    - A score system is measured by gems that you find in all chests.
    Topaz - 1
    Amethyst - 3
    Emerald - 5
    Sapphire - 10
    Ruby - 30
    Diamond - 500

    Currently, max score is 2300

    - Difficulty is based on monster spawn rate, a blue candle is optional for the taking at the start point. By taking it you can choose to increase your challenge when you feel the spawn rate is for some reason getting dull.

    - The map is designed for 1 player.
    _________________________________________________________________

    I would love to hear all your feedback, if the game was too easy, too hard.
    I would love even more if you post your score! Or if you hate counting, just the amount of each gem you found.

    If you liked the map, you should check out the sequel.

    Edits:

    -Update 1.1

    -Widened the lake beneath the bride.
    -Added a second sign on the S.S Flare
    -Added a ladder to the secret chest location in the jungle, allowing the player to get out without having to drown self.
    -Added 2 new secret chests.

    _________________________

    -Update 1.2

    -The chest containing the jungle armor can no longer be reached with a jump (I hope).

    -Added another chest.
    -The chest aboard the S.S Flare now contain 5 grenades instead of 2, and also contains a Flintlock pistol with 30 rounds of musket balls. Yarr!

    __________________________

    -Update 1.3

    -Added some platform alongside scaffolds which were hard to climb.
    -The chest containing Nature's Gift can now be reached without the Cloud in a Bottle.

    How to play:
    Extract 'world3.wld' from the .zip file
    Open up: Documents/My Games/Terraria/Worlds
    Put Wolrd3.wld in said folder.
    If you already have a world named "World3" simply rename one of them.
    Don't forget to keep the ".wld" at the end.

    If you are still having trouble, try Maldor's guide on map installing.

    Enjoy!

    I just downloaded it, going to try it out now. I'll post when I'm done, with what I think. :D

    EDIT: So far, so good. The only problem I have with it is when you have the sign say "Only true heroes leap.", and you actually leap, you overshoot the pool of water below and die. So, maybe you should try widening the pool?

    Thank you for all the feedback ! :)
    I will expand the lake at the begining ( I myself had the feeling its too small )
    And will soon post the max score.

    @KingCreeper64
    Thank you for the feedback!
    I actually designed the map to feel a bit difficult in the begining, and get a little easier as it goes.
    That gives the feeling of progression and shows you how much your character changed from when you started your journey, to when you ended it.

    Very enjoyable, some nice touches (I particularly liked the spikes statistics part!). I had forgotten quite how tought the jungle is with low\mid-level equipment (time to start afresh methinks).

    Great work.

    Oh, I wanted to ask; are players allowed to place blocks they get from chests? I was wondering because some of the chests had useless items in them (I won't say what, but it has to do with a mine) that seemed to be just for story. I also got some Mud Blocks and I wasn't sure if it was okay to use them.

    If it is okay, it might be a good idea to include in the explanation sign so people don't get confused.

    Very clever and fun. I found it very enjoyable. Only scored 1252, may do another try later.

    I did fill some chests with cobwebs, mud or copper ore only to give the feeling that the chests had previous uses, or are just old.
    Technically you're not supposed to place any blocks, but on the other hand, 3-4 mud blocks won't get you far.

    Off topic:
    I just noticed one of the chests is located in a deep hole that you can't jump up from.
    I forgot to place a ladder up because I constantly relied on my rocket boots when creating the map.
    I will fix that soon.

    Once you reach the jungle, carry on downwards until you find your Ivy Whip, use it to continue traversing the jungle left, and past the lava pools.
