Hello hello, everyone! We hope you’re having a great day so far. Welcome back to another “Best Of” compilation from Team Visionary. Today, we’ll be covering some of the newest Minecraft Survival Spawns on the Minecraft Marketplace for May 2021.

Survival Spawns, or Maps, are perhaps some of the earliest custom “gamemodes” introduced in Minecraft. The premise is simple: creative content creators create a map with custom builds, mechanics, gameplay and maybe even command block scripts. 

Players then download the map and load it into their own singleplayer world or multiplayer server, then play it! The Minecraft Marketplace has created a platform for creative folk to offer lots of unique downloadable content. There are tons of different types of maps, ranging from extremely difficult to a walk in the park, and from medieval-themed to sleek and modern. This list includes a range of all sorts of map genres, themes and difficulties. Will you challenge yourself, or are you just looking to load up a map and explore? Let’s get into things! 

Magnet Mobs by Diluvian

Magnet Mobs

You may hear unlucky adventurers complain that they’re magnets for monsters, mobs and other nasty bad luck — in Magnet Mobs by Diluvian, this is literally the case for you! A crazy scientist’s experiment has gone terribly wrong, and it’s magnetized you in a strange way. Mobs, items, and entities in general are now helplessly attracted to you, and anything that’s not bolted to the ground will start flying your way. 

Explore, craft and survive the world of Minecraft survival with this strange new (dis)ability! Though it can be quite helpful in collecting loot from monsters you’ve killed or ore that you’ve mined, you’ll need to be extra careful! You don’t want to look up to find a zombie, skeleton — or worse, a creeper! — flying right into your face. Oh, also, a word of warning from the mapmakers: be careful when using your bow…

Pirate Refuge by Diluvian

Pirate Refuge

Ahoy, mateys! You’re a fearsome pirate that’s conquered the infinitely massive oceans of the world. Enemy pirates lurk around behind every dark, rolling storm, and the waters beneath your trusty ship are filled with behemoths, leviathans and other monstrous beasts that would gobble you and your ship up in a moment if they could. One day, however, you heard an old folk’s tale about a paradise island in the middle of the ocean, a safe place for all pirates to rest at — the Pirate Refuge. 

Pirate Refuge by Diluvian introduces a gorgeous survival spawn built in the middle of the ocean. With idyllic palm trees, cozy cottages, a beautiful ship, this island seems like the perfect place to escape from the terrors of seafaring. However, those who can’t stay away from the itch of adventure can pursue treasure and fame in the hidden caves deep under the island.
