One of the best aspects of Minecraft is the ability to share your wondrous creations — and to play the wondrous creations of others. Natural landscapes, industrious cities, or some things too bizarre to categorize — it is incredible what Minecraft players have been able to create.

Here are ten of the most popular Minecraft maps.

1. Survival Island

So what? It’s just an island, right?

Wrong. Like Optimus Prime, there is more to this island than meets the eye.

The gameplay isn’t far removed from traditional Minecraft, but the difference here is that you must survive using the limited resources available on the island. Rumors of buried treasure exist…

The author provided two simple rules for maximizing your enjoyment:
1. Don’t leave the Island.
2. Play on at least Normal difficulty.

2. Vechs’ Super Hostile Series

This isn’t just a map. This is a whole suite of maps — ten, to be precise — designed to challenge players. It could be low amounts of a critical resource, or deviously placed monster spawners or traps, but the idea is to put pressure on the players.

All maps have a built-in goal system, based around completing a Victory Monument. To complete the monument, the player must acquire the appropriate blocks and place them in their correct slot on the monument — all while surviving the super hostile world.

3. Broville

This isn’t Little Italy, bro. In the town of Broville, you can find hidden treasure, forgotten tombs, secret rooms and passages, lost ruins.

4. Aramis

Also known as Imperial Lands — possibly; it’s unclear — this massive RPG map consists of 11 cities, 3 secret empires, 8 villages, and more than 250 quests. The world itself was inspired by the likes of Oblivion, Morrowind, Fallout 3 and Assassins Creed 2.


  • More than 250 detailed quests, similar to The Elder Scrolls and Fallout ones.
  • More than 40 hours of gameplay.
  • 14 huge cities/empires.
  • Payment system with jobs.
  • 8 villages, each one with an interesting quest line.
  • A 20 minute long rollercoaster/minecart railway system.
  • Money system.

5. Skylands

Skylands is a massive world in the sky with panoramic vistas to see and secret dungeons to loot.

A dude who plays Minecraft all the time, but feels so insecure about his own nerdiness that he trolls Minecraft sites to seem cool. Otherwise, what the hell are you doing here, Aids? Gotcha!
