    In this post I´ll try to write all technical details about "Herobrine´s Mansion".
    I am not part of the Hypixel team. All I know about this map is either from their answers or by using NBTExplorer to analyse their map (This can help a lot with the save files).
    Feel free to correct me if I´m wrong (or my spelling is wrong).

    This post covers:
    • Name+Description of items
    • Villager Shops
    • Mobs with gear
    • Mobs drop music disc
    • Mobs don´t despawn
    • Playing a music disc activates redstone
    • Colored text in chat
    • Player detection
    • No natural spawning mobs
    • Don´t lose your inventory
    • Blindness in skeleton´s crypt
    • Herobrine´s face
    • Bosses are stronger than normal
    • Your nickname in the chat
    • Special potion effects
    • Custom enchantments
    • Colored Wooden Shovel
    • Invincible Villagers
    • Permanent Day/Night
    • Not unloading Day/Night clock on big maps
    And things of Wrath of the Fallen:
    • Wired letters in chat
    Name+Description of items
    The items in Herobrine´s Mansion have custom names and discriptions.
    How is it done?
    They used NBTEdit to edit the items. The data structure of items can be found here. By default the Tags are not there, you have to create them.
    To change the title you have to change the String at tag->display->Name
    For every line of description you have to add a String to the List at tag->display->Lore
    Alternatives:
    MCEdit + SethBling´s ModifyItemStrings

    Villager Shops
    The villagers have custom trades.
    How is it done?
    MCEdit + SethBling´s CreateShops

    Mobs with gear
    Mobs have custom gear and different drop chances for it.
    How is it done?
    They used NBTEdit. The data structure of mobs can be found here. You´re looking for "Equipment" and "DropChances".
    Alternatives:
    MCEdit + SethBling´s CreateGearedMobs (!Make sure your filter is up to date!)

    Mobs drop music discs
    Mobs drop music discs when killed.
    How is it done?
    See above (Mobs with gear). Equip the music disc in an armor slot (excluding head) and the disc won´t be visible ingame.

    Mobs don´t despawn
    Mobs won´t despawn if you are too far away.
    How is it done?
    They used NBTEdit. The data structure of mobs can be found here. You have to set "PersistenceRequired" to "1".
    Alternatives:
    MCEdit + PersistenceMobs

    Playing a music disc activates redstone
    [Broken in 1.5]
    You get music discs from bosses. When you play them in a jukebox the doors open.
    How is it done?
    BUD (Block Update Detector)
    1.5 Solution
    Put a comparator facing out of the jukebox. It'll output power if a music disc is in the jukebox.

    Colored text in chat
    The text outputted by command blocks is colored.
    How is it done?
    MCEdit + SethBling´s ColorCommandBlockText

    Player detection
    When you walk to the merchants´ house they speak to you.
    OR: You walk to the portal after defeating the skeleton king and get teleported.
    How is it done?
    They used custom monster spawners. These spawners trigger once you walk into the area and spawn a villager on top of a pressure plate. There is a video by SethBling using this technique for portals: Here (Ignore the repeaters)

    No natural spawning mobs
    There aren´t any natural spawned mobs in the map
    How is it done?
    Type "/gamerule doMobSpawning false" in chat.

    Don´t lose your inventory
    When you die you keep your inventory.
    How is it done?
    Type "/gamerule keepInventory true" in chat.

    Blindness in skeleton´s crypt
    Before you fight the skeleton king you´re in a big room and have a blindness effect.
    How is it done?
    They edited the beacon to give blindness instead of the normal available effects. You can use MCEdit + SethBling´s EditBeacons

    Herobrine´s face
    Herobrine has it´s original face with it´s white eyes
    How is it done?
    Equip Herobrine a player skull modified using MCEdit+SethBling´s PlayerSkulls

    Bosses are stronger than normal mobs
    Bosses have more health and potion effects on them
    How is it done?
    MCEdit + SethBling´s AddPotionEffect/ChangeMobs

    "YourNick: We need to..." in the chat
    You say something in the chat without ever typed it.
    How is it done?
    With command block parameters. When you use "say @r says: Hallo" minecraft will pick a random player and use it´s name instead of "@r".
    There are two more parameter:
    "@p" - The nearest player
    "@a" - All players (Execute the command with every player´s name)
    For more information visit the minecraft wiki.

    Special potion effects
    Some potions available have more than one effect (e.g. Berserking Potion)
    How is it done?
    Use NBTedit to edit the item. The structure of items can be found here. You´re looking for a list "tag"->"CustomPotionEffects". Just add as many effects as you want.
    Alternatives:
    MCEdit + SethBling´s ModifyPotions

    Custom enchantments
    Many items have enchantments not available with normal enchanting (e.g."Unbreaking X")
    How is it done?
    Use NBTedit to edit the item. The structure of items can be found here. You´re looking for a list "tag"->"ench". Just add as many enchantments as you want.
    Alternatives:
    MCEdit + SethBling´s Enchant

    Colored Wooden Shovel
    The zombie at the beginning holds a green wooden shovel.
    How is it done?
    I don´t think this this was intended. The color of the shovel changes with the color of the leaves on its head, so I think this is a bug in minecraft. It works somehow like this:
    1. Minecraft draws the armor
    2. When it´s at the head it changes the colors to be more green than other leave types
    3. Then it draws the head
    4. (Here it should change the colors to normal but it doesn´t)
    5. Then it draws the shovel (with that more green color)
    Invincible Villagers
    You can hit the villagers a thousand time and they won´t die
    How is it done?
    You can use NBTedit to give the mob an everlasting Resistance 4 effect.
    Alternatives:
    MCEdit + SethBling´s Invincible


    Perm-Day/Night
    It stays night/day the whole time.
    How is it done?
    SethBling's video


    Not unloading Day/Night clock on a big map
    The day/night clock works even if you're miles away.
    How is it done?
    The chunks around the spawn will never unload. Put it there.
    Wrath of the Fallen
    Wired letters in chat
    #+&/!"§ says: ...
    How is it done?
    Use the formatting code §k.
    All worlds after the §k will change randomly.
    Use §r to end the random letters. All worlds after that will be displayed normal. (§r resets the color codes as well!)
    This will also work in books, on items and on signs. (You must use a mod/nbtedit in order to type the § symbol in minecraft)

    do you know how he made it to where it would say, for example, "Antvenom: Hello, how are you" In the chat using command blocks?

    Added it to the list.
    This one is very complicated.
    Short Version: The color of the leaves on the head controls the color of the shovel. I think it´s a game bug. It might has to do something with not resetting opengl variables after rendering the leaves color. I don´t think Hypixel tried to achieve this. But I could be totally wrong.
    Long Version: If you are interested in the details I can take a closer look at the game code. But only if you´re very interested.

    My fault. Here´s an example:
    I´m on the server.
    The command block with "@r says: Hallo" gets activated. Minecraft searches for a random player and finds "Johni0702".
    It replaces "@r" with "Johni0702" the command which get executed now would be "Johni0702 says: Hallo" and here I missed something. To see this message in the chat you would have to write "say @r says: Hallo". This executes the command "say" with the text explained above.

    Sorry, I'm just a guy who notices ALL grammar mistakes.
    (If you made other typos in your post, I didn't notice them cause I skimmed the stuff I did know and I looked at the stuff I didn't know, :3)

    Question. During certain fights, such as against the Wither or the Witch, items like potions will randomly be spawned. I know a clock is used at random to activate the potions, and is activated, but what configures the potions to be dropped or shot?
