Survival Lava Islands, Minecraft Survival And Adventure Map Download

Updated on September 26, 2011
The sand island, the only island in this archipelago of lava that isn't constantly beset by the sort of weather that makes one question one's desire for survival.
The sand island, the only island in this archipelago of lava that isn't constantly beset by the sort of weather that makes one question one's desire for survival.

A survival island challenge with bonus lava, Survival Lava Islands sets you out on a journey through a massive archipelago of islands in a sea of lava. This map deserves the title 'epic', it is both very large and very deep and I'm betting that you'll taste the bitterness of defeat many, many times over before you make this chain of hellish islands your own.

To give you a taste of what you're in for, this Minecraft Survival Map doesn't even have the decency to spawn on you on one of the islands. Instead you spawn in the middle of the lava ocean atop a platform of glass and stone. You are given some assistance on your journey however, a chest at the spawn point contains the following materials:

16 blocks of wood.

8 blocks of dirt.

32 blocks of stone.

8 saplings.

Your first destination is immediately laid out before you. Known only as 'that' island, a promising land mass rises in the distance. It is rather tall and jagged, but compared to the stone and glass platform you're floating on at the beginning of your quest for survival, it looks like paradise.

The 32 blocks of stone alone are not quite enough to get you over to the island, but with the creative use of both stone and wood planks, you can probably make it. There is the concern that your bridge might catch fire and plunge you into the lava before you do, but hey, we've all got problems, haven't we?

Survival Lava Islands departs from other survival maps, which are difficult to survive because of scarcity of resources and makes the challenge of survival down to three main factors:

  • Not falling into lava
  • Not falling off a cliff
  • Surviving the hordes of undead that come out every night and quite often during the day too. The map has been designed to be void of monster spawning dead zones, so you can expect to spend a decent amount of time panicking as you run around little islands precariously perched high above seas of lava.
  • The weather. I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but it snowed, rained and thundered the entire time I was checking this map out. Some weather is nice. Constant weather is not.

This is not a map that wastes time coddling the player, and experienced survival island players will probably enjoy it immensely, not just becayse of the added challenge of all that lava, but also because it is quite a large map with quite a lot of area to explore. There are at least six islands to explore, some (much) more remote than others, and because of the lava and the absence of iron boats, it's going to take you some time to build your way across to all of them and explore their treasures and horrors.

      I might have to try this with my cousin when he gets his computer set up. it will be fun trying to survive as long as possible. But I am not that experienced at survival island type maps. So it should not be to long into the map before I die.

      Well I fixed my computer so now I can aaluclty play more. I may be very late on the newest Terraria content and what's going on with Minelater (I have not played since version 1.0.7), but I'm wondering how long the Minelater server will be down for since Tshock is being tested.
