Water Dome Survival Map for Minecraft 1.8.8


Like the name suggests, the Water Dome Survival map is all about gathering resources, building farms and raising livestock while trying to stay alive at the bottom of the ocean. A nice tough here is that the surface of the ocean has actually been replaced with layers of bedrock and stone, so it’s actually impossible for you to escape the water and make your way onto the land. Or at least it’s very difficult. You could theoretically travel to the Nether, then build another portal somewhere to use as an exit to return to the normal world, where you should be on the surface somewhere.






Speaking of the Nether, you can actually find a special glass dome in that place as well. The other 8 outside of your starting point can all be found in the normal overworld, though they will also be at the bottom of the ocean. This makes traveling around between domes a very dangerous experience. Before you go adventuring, you’ll probably want to work on getting something enchanted with water breathing. Barring that, you could always pack some extra torches and use the glitch where they replace water for a second when placed underwater – this will give you the air you need to travel long distances.
