  1. What if the map would be impossible for 360 to load the full thing? If you never load it on the 360 and just skipped to the "upload to xbox one" part, would the full map still appear? (this map takes up a 9×9 map space, making 360 impossible to render it.)

  2. About 3 months ago I did this tutorial and it worked! But when I try to download maps now, it says it saves to my usb but when I go on mine craft it's not there! 😭 PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!
