    About
    Hello, this is my newest survival map, Trapped Within! Its where you are trapped inside a MASSIVE volcano. Inside the volcano is all sorts of things, lava, stone, crystals, snow.... ...wait just a jippy, snow?! In a volcano?! Wheres the logic in that?! Well yeah, as you can see, this map has no logic. Mainly because it kinda flew out of my window when i was making it... :3 (The whole story of the map is explained on the signs when you first spawn)

    Also in 1.2, there is an extra version of the map for Capture The Gem! It features extra stuff to make the map suitable for CTG gameplay!

    Looking pretty good. Downloading now, I'll give it a try tomorrow. And try using the 'Attach File' feature in the post editor, makes the download more trustworthy.

    Ok, I'll use the 'Attach File' feature as a extra downloadable link and keep using mediafire as well. Hope enjoy the map. :)

    This map looks like a lot of fun and I like the time you spent thinking of all the different challenges. Looks like a lot of traditional adventure design was integrated into the map while still letting you build and dig freely. Very cool. I will be digging into this soon. Haha! My first use of that pun.

    By the way, yeah, tried to download the map and this popped up.

    Just to be safe I will wait for the file attached to your post. ;)

    Actually, instead, I would upload the map to here: http://terraria.curseforge.com/maps/

    They've got a great setup tailored to custom maps and a great file system that will track your total downloads for you. Also FYI, when you upload the file it will say it needs approval but you can start linking to it in the description and here immediately. (Also FYI: Each version update should have all files included as the newest file is always used for the "Download Now" button they have.

    I'll certainly look in to uploading the file on to the website you have provided me (not sure why the file is detected as a virus :p). Oh and thank you for the extra help you are giving me here :), I have not really been making maps since the release of terraria and some updates that then came after (in other words, a lot has changed since I've last made maps for the community). Although I must say that this is not my first map, as Survival Island [Terraria Edition] was. (I plan to make a remake of it after i've finished with this map :) )

    Anyway, will update the map file links as soon as it's not so early in the morning for me. :p

    Ah! I had the same problem with AVG before. I use Microsoft Security Essentials now, along with the self-included Thinkpad Toolbox. None of them are wuzzies like Norton, and they require less attention.(Less attention meaning they can handle being alone)
  12. Chaos Yellow Slime

    There, i've now added 2 more download mirrors. One on curse and one attached. Hopefully no one should have any problems downloading. :) Now to get back to work on Version 1.1 for the map.

    Can I use a pickaxe/axe/shortsword?
  14. Chaos Yellow Slime

    I dont see any rules saying why you shouldnt.

    Just released version 1.1! I've also added more pictures for people to look at. Enjoy. :)

    This is a really good map, but when I spawned a Bone Serpent killed me about 12 times...
  17. Chaos Yellow Slime

    I cant do anything about that because it is a bug with the game (Ive put the platform in which you spawn on really high but they keep coming, its no way near hell. :p). Although i can give you a tip: build your base on the left side or right side of the volcano, you get attacked less and with the tests ive been doing a Bone Serpent is much rarer to attack you. Hope it helps. :) Oh and im glad you like it. :)
  18. Tim Hjersted Arapaima

    I like the idea of spawning in an area that is very dangerous and you have to run away to safety at the beginning, but maybe a sign/hint/story element to suggest as much would be helpful.
  19. Chaos Yellow Slime

    I will add some tips for the next version. Im also planing to add 2 extra areas to the left and right for pvp survival aspects, as well as more vast space to explore. (Im also thinking of making a separate version of the map that is used for the game mode Capture The Gem.)

    Ive done updating the map in the editor for both the survival and CTG(added some more cool features!). Ive also added extra stuff for CTG and ive added helpful hints for both versions. As well as that, ive given the guide a new name... ;) Now to update the thread and download links. May take about 10-30 mins approx.

    Done!
