The Sunken Island Adventure is an example of an amazing imagination and amazing terra forming skills. If your not aware terra forming is basically sculpting the land in your own way using Mods such as MCEdit World Editor or similar Mods. Some people decide to make Maps and creations from scratch. The developer of the Sunken Island Custom Map said he was inspired by a picture.

The Map is a desert island with a beach around the out side of the island with two huge mountains being the main focal point. The whole island is surrounded by a circle of water falls so there is no escape! After the Map got released it quickly became really popular as its an amazing creation, so the developer started changing the Map in a number of ways so it can be played as an Adventure Map. The Sunken Island Custom Map now has a full story line. The adventure sees you finding hidden chests which will help you on your adventure.
