Today we are going to take a look back at previously released adventure maps and how they have been updated since they were featured. Almost every map that is released goes through at least one revision and it's always for the better. Map makers will make harder/easier difficulties and balance out weaponry and armor, but for the most part, the revisions squash bugs and just clean up the map. So without further ado, here is a list of updated maps in no particular order. You can click the titles to be taken to their respected download and information page.
Skellig Valnus by Terraria Online forum member Laddus is up to v2. He's made this adventure map almost unbreakable, but he's added more beds to make progression a little bit easier. All the wiring has been optimized and Laddus claims that even the noobiest of players will know where to go now. It's a beautiful map that Laddus has built and if you haven't played this map yet, now's the time to check it out!
Loophole was an ambitious project by the team of Electrolux and Astrolux. They wanted to create a really visually appealing parkour map and they succeed very well with Loophole Part 1. That came as a trade off though, as Part 1 was a pretty short affair. That's all changed now that they have completed Part 2 of the series. Electroflux isn't finished with the series, but he's working on a new map and is hoping to return to Loophole after that. To play Part 2 you'll need to finish Part 1 first, but that'll give you a good excuse to play these great maps again.
The Forgotten Ice Temple is up to a finalized version 1.7. XoGenius has finished revising his epic map that has you adventuring from the beginning copper items to fighting all the hard-mode bosses. The original map was pretty hard but after many revisions the balance of difficulty has been tweaked for the better. XoGenius has also updated the map with more items, more secrets to find, and even an optional mini-boss. It's a great map that includes multiplayer for up to 4 people(with 4 different characters included from v1.4 and he's even included female characters from v1.5) and it also includes it's own texture pack. If you missed this one, it's a great map that'll give you quite a few hours of playtime, and even if you've played it already, there just might be enough changed to make it feel fresh again.
Minilands, by forum member IcyPro, has also seen quite a bit of updating since it was released and featured. IcyPro has fixed everything that needed fixing(you can never squash every bug) and has even added a "Hardcore" version of this map. The hardcore version is only available at his TerrariaOnline thread here. He's added more keys, signs, chests, and just about everything was spaced out a little bit better so that when your in copper armor a hardmode enemy doesn't come and gank you. If you've been wanting to play a great survival map, the latest v3 of Minilands is a great one to dive into.
The Story of Red Cloud maybe the last map I featured, but it's also a very technical map from forum member Tim Hjersted. So technical, that Tim has been working very hard to create a bug free, smooth adventure for the last few weeks. It's up to v22.214.171.124 and he's been balancing the difficulty out to a fine tune. Tim's been hard at work fixing boss battles to making certain enemies appear only after a certain boss has been downed. It's a truly amazing adventure map that is in a league of it's own and if you haven't played this one yet you better start right now!
Last but not least, my own map, The Legend of Zelda - A Link to Terraria, has been updated to v1.1. I've added some new secrets, balanced some areas and dungeons, added more magic, and put more information in signs to help adventurers figure out what to do at certain areas. It's been a labor of love and this will probably be the only revision, unless I totally screwed something up, which is always a possibility.
If there's a map on this list that you haven't played yet, well now is the best time to do so! The map makers featured here are some of the most dedicated map makers and it shows by how often they update their maps. I'd like to thank those map makers for keeping up the good work and I hope they're all working on more content for everyone in the Terraria community to enjoy.
