CTM maps are exceptionally popular in the Minecraft community. The Diversity map is a CTM map, although it introduces a new twist on traditional CTM gameplay elements.
The Diversity map is officially a multi-genre Minecraft map. What on Earth does that mean? Check out the trailer below to get more information:
As you can see in that trailer, this map includes the following features:
-Ten different map genres “neatly tucked into one map”
-Like all CTM maps, you bring in the colored wool to build the correct monument
-Players travel through several unique areas, including islands in the sky, heavily fortified castles, hedge mazes, bizarre prisons, and many more!
What are the ten different map types, you might ask? They include Adventure, Arena, Trivia, Parkour, Escape, Labyrinthian, Dropper, Survival, Puzzle, and Boss Battle. All of these map types are popular in the Minecraft community but as far as I know, this is the first map with all of the elements rolled into one.
The rules for the Diversity map are fairly straightforward and similar to other map rules. Those rules include:
-No breaking, placing, or crafting any items unless instructed or implied
-No changing game modes or difficulty settings for any reason
-No typed commands are allowed (i.e. TP, give, spawnpoint)
-Start on Easy difficulty for single player mode and, if possible, avoid viewing the Options screen
The map’s creator, qmagnet, also recommends you use the default resource park, set brightness to high, clouds to off, and render distance to far for the optimal gameplay experience.
If you’re having trouble completing the map and its many challenges, then you can find some spoilers and tips in the map’s original forum thread.
Diversity is a really cool map. A lot of work has gone into making it a totally unique experience compared to other Minecraft maps and it’s definitely worth a few hours of your time.
