    In this map, 4 teams of explorers come under the curse of the Pharaoh and must be the last team surviving to overcome the curse. It features 4 base islands for 6 players, and large middle island for all to see.
    Within the base islands are:
    1 Broken Diamond Generator
    2 Level 1 Iron Generators
    2 Level 1 Gold Generators
    Color-Coded Ankhs for each team: Blue, Red, Yellow, and Black.

    Within the Middle island are:
    2 Level 3 Diamond Generators
    3 Level 3 Iron Generators
    1 Level 3 Gold Generator and 2 Level 2 Gold Generators

    Pray that you make it out alive in this map, or you might become another victim of the Curse of the Pharaoh!

    Sorry but I'll give this map a -1.

    First of all there isn't variation between the islands. You also overkilled the islands with sandstone. Try to mix up some blocks to make it look much nicer. The pyramid is very basic too. Let your imagination go and try to build an epic pyramid.

    You also have to add way more details, cause it's cuurently very basic
    Also you really have to work on the terraforming.

    Good luck with improving your map, let your imagination go and I'm sure you are able to build a nice map! :)

    Well the map IDEA is a good one, but the actual build is pretty eh to me. There is very little detail in the island, and they all seem to be exactly the same. Im not sure if the middle is off center, but it looks it to me. Not for my rant of suggestions. If you added a falling sand effect that goes far down the bottom of the island it would be a cool effect. Adding more features and differences to each island would also be nice (Maybe each island could be dedicated to a different greek god). The islands should be a little closer to each other (In my opinion) and the flatness of the islands if kinda throwing me off too. Also as @HarryVanSunweb said, its looking very sandy to me. Try adding in some other blocks to change up the map a bit. This a a good skeleton, but it needs some more work.

    Just a question, as I don't know if I need to make a new thread for the updated version. But how does the middle island look now?

    Wow!! That's actually looking VERY GOOD compared to the first screenshot. I'm not an expert about creating game maps sow only take my advice if you like it:
    - Those mountains sure look amazing, but how is someone supposed to get to the middle if they don't have enough blocks? I'd get annoying if I'd have to climb all the way up.
    - The Piramid looks a bit simple I HAVE 0 IDEA'S HOW TO MAKE IT LOOK BETTER. Buut if you do have just a small thing to decorate the piramid add it. For example, you could make vines on the piramid made out of Acacia or Jungle Leaves.
    - The ground in the middle is a bit too flat. Try to make very small hills sow it's not flat anymore :) But don't remove the quartz, it looks good.
    - The Gravel path looks just vanilla. Try to use multiple blocks for the path, for example make a path of Gravel, Stone/Cobblestone and not just a straight path that's just 2 blocks wide.
    - If you keep the mountains to make it look great, try to make some kind of wooden/sandstone stairs sow players can climb up easier.

    That's all I got to say, I'm looking foreward to another update of your map :)

    Also another question: As it
    Can do! Thanks for the helpful advice! Another question: As the guideline said no Spheres- Would it be okay to put a sun above the middle?

    Well, I'm not sure about that. But as long as you have World Edit, just try it. You can remove the sun in 1 command.
    I recommend making the sun they way the builders did in the map Space (Team EggWars), Making the sphere/sun out of red/orange/yellow stained glass and fill the inside with lava. And try to place the sun very high, and as a secret you could maybe add a lvl. 3 Dia gen on top of the sun.

    Sow I'd just try it and if the Builders don't like it, you can just World Edit it away :)

    Very nice map in my opinion. Maybe you should add some palms here and there to fill up the space. :)
