The Grinchmas Map wants to prepare you for the holiday season. The Grinchmas map is scattered with classic holiday scenery, including presents, candy canes, and lots and lots of snow. It’s one of the community’s most unique maps, and it’s also easy enough to give you a relaxing holiday experience.
As you may have guessed from the name, the Grinchmas map includes the Grinch himself. The unique Grinch skin features a green player wearing a Santa suit with the classic Grinch eyebrows. You can play through the entire map wearing this skin to achieve the true ‘Grinch’ effect.
The snow effects on the Grinchmas map are particularly good. Snowflakes fall down from the sky to create a winter wonderland-type appearance on the environment. The world includes a massive Christmas tree under which players will find some exciting presents.
You’ll even find Whoville as you explore the map. Outside of the main villages and cities (including a massive city called Rueville), you’ll find mountains and factories that are waiting to be explored. And if you look especially hard, you might even stumble upon the Grinch’s summer cabin.
Here are the rules of the Grinchmas map:
-Play on Peaceful
-Do not place, break, or burn blocks unless the map specifically instructs you to do so
-No crafting allowed unless instructed
-Stay within the boundaries of the map
You’ll also want to use the custom texture pack included with the map in order to experience the full effect of the map. Otherwise, your Christmas presents will look like standard blocks and you won’t see any of the classic holiday-themed decorations around the map – so what’s the point?
And if you want to get the full Christmas experience, then you can install one of the skins included with the Grinchmas map. There is a Santa Suit skin, a Grinch skin, and a number of other creative character models.
If you want to experience what Christmas is like inside the Minecraft world, then the Grinchmas map is as good as it gets. Follow the instructions below to download and install Grinchmas today!
