Hi guys,
I always wanted to build a big horrormap that will change the experience players can have here in survivalcraft. 
I started many times but never finished my maps. It's very difficult to create a good map if you dont have enough time (school). Therefore I opened
this topic. I hope somebody also want to build a cool and very scary map together with me. 

My maingoals for this project:
  • Scary/ large/ detailed environment image
  • Achievementwall (See pictures below)
  • Mapwall (See pictures below)
  • Jumpscares image
  • Good/ exciting story image
  • Several hours gametime image
  • Eastereggs image
The achievement- and the mapwall​ were always something i wanted to add to the map. 
Here are some pictures how i think they could look: 

Achievementwall:

Mapwall:

If you want to help me build the map, I would love to see how good you can build. Even if you can't build you can help us with ideas. 

Here's a sequenceplan what I think we should do after we have a team.

Sequenceplan what we should do:
  1. Find ideas
  2. Write a storyscript
  3. Draw map
  4. Build map
  5. Build electronics
  6. Test map 
  7. Publish map

It's cool to see that somebody would help me.
I tought we could make a story were you play a detective or something like that. You need to solve a puzzle of strange happenings in a forest. A girl vanished a few weeks ago and the police didn't found her.
The family of the girl wrote you a letter if you could help.
I don't know if we can make a good story about that...

I don't think the story needs to be too complicated. I think the most important thing is gameplay. We can make a super complicated story, but if the map won't work, then it's pointless.

Okay, what story do you think, would be good for such a project? And what do you mean with "but if the map won't work, then it's pointless."?

Okay, you know, your idea is not relevant,megamaps. I'm sorry but you said that you want a horror map. Your idea is about, more like a mystery and it involves forest, the place i dont like. You need a huge forest, megamaps.

I think you need a specific place or a building? I am working on two horror maps now, The House and The Hospital. You know, you can make the horror map in an old school or in a hotel?

Hi Haziq1,
no I dont want only one building. I want a whole map with different places. A forest, different houses, a lake and more.
The idea is to create a whole story with different places you can visit, not only a single building. Yes it will be a big map and a big forest but thats excactly what I want to do. Why you dont like the forest? I think it would bring a scary atmosphere to the environment.

I suggest,a city? Maybe,if you are a hardworking person. Forest is an open place. Maybe the horror feelings can happen if you are a creative person. For me its hard to make a horror map in forest. For adventure, forests are the best place.

Forests are such a cliched trope for horror maps tho. Slenderman is one key example. A lot of scary @*++ happens in forests. People get killed, lost, and thereanimals and unknown and what not. Think there's a survival horror gamep called The Forest also?

Yes I have "The Forest" and it's really scary if you play alone :) I think de could make a intro-like sequence were you drive in a car and crash into a tree. We cluld use pistons to move the car. You get out of the car and try to repair it but it's not repairable. Then you take your stuff and search help. And then the mainpart of the story begins.

That sounds okay. Word of caution, one large adventure map, Atlantide, did not go well. And after that, there was Gotham, which ended pretty badly as well. Bith creators stopped playing thegame for various reasins and the map was nevee completed.

I hope you persevere and finish it :)

Can you do that, megamaps? Colin is right. Many big projects stopped at the middle, never completed. I hope you completed it.

Adib thx I will send you an email when we need help.
Haziq1 yes I will finish it.

The story that I wrote is not finished yet. But I wanted you and all here to ask what you want the story to be. If all think the forest and the missing girl are good ideas then its okay.

Yes, the story is about a girl that is missing in a forest. The police and the family of the girl could not found her. The police closed the case and believed the girl is dead. The parents of the girl did not believe that and called you (private detective) to break the case.

At the beginning we could make a room with a tv. You hear something about a missing girl in a forrest. Then we could make a situation with the title "1 year later" then you are in another room with a telephone. We could build an old telephone (1960's). After each scene we could make something like a trapdoor so you can fall in the next scene. The parents of the girl call you. They want you to help find the girl because the police stopped investigating the case. You help them and drive into the forest. Then you crash into a tree...
