At first, it was the Skyblock map, and then people started to get even more extreme and create the Minecraft One Block, a.k.a Minecraft One Block Skyblock map.

The One Block map has a total of 10 phases: The Plains, The Underground, Icy Tundra, Ocean, Jungle Dungeon, Red Desert, The Nether, Idyll, Desolate Land, The End. Each phase will have a different theme and a different set of blocks, items, and mobs accordingly.
