How to improve your adventure worlds

Is your adventure world a bit boring? Here are some ways you can spice up your world and get yourself to the very top of community content.

  1. Use dialogue, but don’t overdo it. We’re all guilty of skipping cutscene dialogue in videogames. While dialogue is great to add context to a situation, try not to add too much. Add just enough so the reader knows what’s going on.
  2. Give yourself space! This of course depends on the adventure map, but if the character needs to travel to several different locations, space them out a bit. It adds some travel time and prolongs the adventure, and it gives the player a chance to admire the scenery.
  3. Add a few surprises along the way. If your map is somewhat open world, I’d recommend allowing the player to look around and explore things a bit. Add some extra dialogue scenes or special chests, or if you’re feeling really ambitious, side quests.
  4. Learn how to use electrics. You can find several articles online and tutorials on YouTube to help you. (We’ll admit some are limited and we are working to expand them) Secret passageways, flickering lights, timed explosions, your own music…the possibilities are endless.
  5. Better visual appeal = more immersive experience. While your imagination can go a long way, it’s much more interesting to have a well designed house rather than a simple box. Not everyone is a good builder and that is perfectly okay, but it’s always a good idea to try to improve your skills. Watch some building tutorials on YouTube. There are an abundance of Minecraft building tutorials, and the game is similar enough that these skills can be transferred to Survivalcraft. Practice makes perfect!
