Floating cities are fun. Floating cities are even more fun in minecraft, where you have the opportunity to fall off the edge or alternatively build a new edge. Based on the now famous Bioshock floating city, Cielo is not a re-make of Columbia (you can find one of those here) Cielo is a unique map, one that was nine months in the making, one with a stunning series of builds that are both inspiring and gorgeous.
Dungeons of Daemonheim is an epic minecraft adventure survival map that will see you and every friend you can muster crawling through dungeons, dunegoning your way to success. Lots of monsters. Lots of traps. Lots of dungeons. Really. A whole lot of dungeons. It’s silly how many there are. This map is based on the ever popular Runescape.
