Cave Survival - A Minecraft Survival Map made by Political_Slime

Gathered friends, hear now the tale of the Slime.

In the time before time (AKA 2 years ago) there went a young user called Political_Slime. He had just gotten Minecraft for his 16th birthday, and wanted to create his own Survival Map. Cue roughly 1 month of working (and some play-testing done by friends), and thus this thing was born.

Basically, the idea behind this map was SkyBlocks but underground, with limited resources. You start off with one tree, and you have to adventure around the "cave" in order to find other stuff.

Bear in mind that this map was made in 2013, so it plays in 1.5. I wouldn't suggest playing it above that because of reasons.
