The Great Survival Map (GSM) was a server wide project organized by 18.png Skelleton123 and the Survival Railway Network team. The map was created to map out the Survival 2 world.[1]

History

After the announcement of the new Survival 2 world in August of 2017, the SRN team was in need of a new map background upon which stations could be planned with in the new world. There would be no access to a world map generated by a third party program or plugin. Therefore, the only way to have a large map available was to have players submit them themselves. Thus, the idea for the server wide project started. Upon the launch of the new Survival 2 world and the completion of Grand Central Station in Havana, the first edition of the map was posted on the website forum, with Havana as the map's center point. It consists of a 10x10 grid of step 4 zoom maps, each map covering an area of 128x128 chunks or 2048x2048 blocks. Despite its size, the map only shows an area of 20,480x20,480 blocks (between -10240 and 10240 in the x and z axis) which is just 16.8% of the entirety of Survival 2, which featured a 50,000x50,000 block world with borders at x and z = +25,000 and -25,000.

At first the Map was located in a pit, next to the Grand Central Station in Havana, but a more appropriate place was required. Skelleton123 designed a building where the full map could be kept and expanded upon in the future. The new Map Building was completed in May 2018.

End of the Project

The Map building was prepared for a possible border expansion once the server updated to 1.13. Minecraft 1.13 would have also allow the map to be placed on the floor and to use banners to indicate where cities, SRN stations, NTN portals and other landmarks are located. However, the Survival 2 world which the map is located in was never updated, and was instead deleted to make way for Survival 3. The concept of the Great Survival Map was included in the spawn area of the new Survival 3 world as the Grand Map, making this its spiritual successor.
