What's The Fuss About The Original Minecraft Survival Island?
Well for one, the first survival island was new and excitin and over 300,000 folks downloaded the map, so it has somethin of a cult status.
For two, even though I've been playin this kind for a long time now, nothin quite likens to the first minecraft survival island map, there's something very simple and well balanced about it.
I think that's mostly because the map isn't too austere, it doesn't deny you access to the ores beneath the soil, as do many recent maps. It's also small enough that animals don't spawn, which fully blew my mind when I first played the game.
Workin out how to get animals to spawn was enormously fun (hint: animals won't spawn too close to you, you need to get a workin distance away from grass, which in survival island, means expandin the island.)
The original survival island was about tamin a small patch of sand, and takin a couple blocks of grass and turnin it into a pasture. Unlike many other old survival maps, this one fortunately hasn't turned into a snow biome, so you can play it the way it was first meant to be played.
