Description

OneBlock is a Survival Minecraft map, where you are stranded in the void on top of a single block. But there is a twist: you can mine the block as much as you want. Can you survive?

The video above showcases the Minecraft map OneBlock! This map works in the Minecraft Java edition version 1.15.2-1.15. No mods are required!

1. Which phases are there?

There are 10 phases in total. Plains, Underground, Snow Biome, Ocean, Jungle Dungeon, Desert, The Nether, Idyll, Desolation, The End. Each phase features a set of blocks, items, and monsters appropriate for the setting However, random blocks from previous phases may also appear.

2. How many blocks are there in the 10 phases?

There are currently roughly 7000 blocks. Most of the phases have around 700-800 blocks, except for the earlier ones, which are a bit shorter.

3. What happens after the phases?

After you mine the final block of the tenth phase, an incomplete end portal will spawn below the infinite block. After that, the infinite block will still spawn blocks. There is an infinite number of blocks that can appear, and after the tenth phase, they're randomly selected from all the 10 phases. After the tenth phase, items in chests and mobs that spawn are also all randomly taken from all the phases.

4. Why do certain blocks spawn more frequently than others?

Each block has a certain weight, and this weight defines how likely it is that they'll appear if the infinite block spawns a random block. This weight is roughly equal to how large the pre-defined amount of this block is in all phases.

5. Which mobs can the infinite block spawn?

A certain set of mobs is defined to spawn, which includes most hostile mobs, all neutral mobs (except for the trader llama), and all passive mobs (except for bats). Boss monsters and utility mobs (like the iron golem) won't be spawned by the infinite block. All mobs that can be spawned by the infinite block will be spawned at least once. After that, there are random spawns, so you may get them again. Besides that, you may get any mob that can naturally spawn.

6. Which chests can spawn?

There are normal chests, which only contain random items from the current phase. After phase 3, the second type of chest can spawn, which can contain items from the current, as well as previous and future phases.

7. Can you get items, mobs and blocks from earlier phases again?

Yes. There are super chests, which may contain items from the current, previous and future phases. There are random blocks, which can be blocks from earlier and the current phase. Mobs spawned by the infinite block only spawn in that specific phase, but can also spawn again from the infinite block in the Afterphases. If you can't wait that long, they also just normally appear e.g. like sheeps spawn on grass blocks.

8. Do mobs spawn naturally in the world?

Yes. Mob spawning is enabled in the map. Though the map is completely a Plains biome, which means that only mobs that can spawn in the Plains biome may spawn naturally.

9. Are there different biomes?

The map supports 10 phases, each with a different theme, which may relate to one or multiple biomes. However, the Overworld of the map is only set in the Plains biome. That means, everywhere you go in the void, you have the environment of a Plains biome, regardless of what the infinite block spawns.

10. Are there naturally spawning structures?

Yes, structure generation is enabled by default. This means, that nether fortresses, end cities and similar structures may spawn in the alternate dimension!

11. Is it possible to reach the Nether in this map?

Yes, it is. Nether blocks and obsidian can be obtained in phase 7 and later phases. Lava buckets may be available earlier in certain chests, but you'd need to be insanely lucky to get enough to create a nether portal before reaching phase 7.

12. What is the end goal?

It's pretty much what you want it to be. You should be able to do pretty much everything you can do in a normal Minecraft world, given enough time. A good goal might be for you to defeat the ender dragon. But it could also just be to build the greatest sky castle there ever was. It's all up to you!

13. Is there Multiplayer support?

Yes, the map runs smoothly on servers. However, there is only one single infinite block in the map that needs to be shared between players. There isn't an infinite block for every player.

How to install

This is an installation guide for Minecraft version(s) 1.15 in Singleplayer and Multiplayer. This guide is only for the Minecraft Java Edition and the Minecraft version(s) listed here.

Installation Guide
(Java Singleplayer 1.15.2-1.15)

The process may be different for my other maps.

  1. Download the map, and you'll get a zip file in your Downloads folder.
  2. Unpack the zip file.
    • You can do it using WinRar or 7Zip.
    • Or on Windows 10, you can right-click the zip file directly and click "Extract all".
  3. Now you have a folder, which is the map.
  4. Some "Unzipping" programs may wrap the map folder in another folder. Open the map folder and if there's only a single folder inside, that folder inside is the actual map! Move that single folder outside, and use it instead!
    • If there is a level.dat file inside the folder, it is the right map folder!
  5. Open your Minecraft saves folder.
    1. On Windows, you can do so by pressing (Windows key) + R at the same time.
    2. A window will open, and you need to enter %appdata% in the text field.
    3. The Windows explorer will open, so click on the .minecraft folder.
    4. Inside, open the saves folder, which contains all your worlds.
  6. Place the map folder inside the saves folder, which contains all your worlds.
  7. Now you can open the map in Minecraft.

Fixes

If the map doesn't work as intended, doing one of the following things may fix the problem.

  1. Check that you're using the right Minecraft version (1.15.2-1.15) and edition (Java).
  2. If you have any mods installed, there might be complications. Run the map without them.

Report

If you experience any problems with this map, one of the options below may help you. Should none of those options address your problem, you may want to report a bug.

There may be multiple reasons if the map does not show up in the Singleplayer menu.

  • If you have a lot of worlds, the map might just be buried somewhere in between them in the menu!
  • Some "Unzipping" programs may wrap the unzipped folder in another folder. Open the folder and if there is only a single folder inside, that folder inside is the actual map! Move that single folder outside, and use it instead! If there is a level.dat file is inside that folder, it is the right map folder!

This can happen if you play the map in the wrong Minecraft version. You can try to use a backup or down-/upgrade the world's version to the right Minecraft version.


If the infinite block does not spawn any new blocks, this may be because of one or multiple of the following reasons:

  • You are playing the map on the wrong Minecraft version.
  • Singleplayer: You have mods or other data packs installed that interfere with the map.
  • Multiplayer: You are using a modded Minecraft server (e.g. Bukkit, Spigot) instead of the default Minecraft server.

Natural mob spawning is enabled by default in the map. If no mobs appear to spawn, this may have multiple reasons:

  • Mobs can not spawn within a 24 block spherical distance of your spawn point.
  • Multiplayer: You run the map on a server (e.g. Bukkit, Spigot) that disables mob spawning.

That's not a bug. The map only supports one infinite block. Copying or multiplying the infinite block for multiple players is not possible at the moment.
