    Hiya!

    I hope I might have a new map for TIMV, if you think the map should be official, comment on the post. The name/theme for the map is Frigid Cabin. As seen in the images below, the Cabin is isolated on an iceberg surrounded by poisonous water. There are currently 4 enderchests and 130 normal chests within the map. I just recently had finished the map and I'm eager for it to be accepted.

    I hope you guys like the map enough for it to become official. I sadly do not have a cinematic of the map, but please don't feel hesitant to to criticize, every opinion helps. My ign is Xukaka :)

    Looks like a great idea however I would recommend trying to make the map larger. Unfortunately it is way too small, but keep up the great work! :)

    Thanks for the advice, the map has a lot of potential for extension and I plan on doing it. If there's anything else that you think needs twerking, please let me know!

    That's good, can't wait to see the map when it is larger and extended. TIMV seriously needs more new maps and it's good you are making a new one. Hope it gets accepted! :)

    You can see a sneak peak of the extended version of the map in the New Cave System & Traitor Mine images I edited in the map post.

    Hope you like it!

    I'm not in any way qualified to give an opinion on timv maps (I don't even have 700 karma) but I think the size of the map needs to be at least 3-4 times the current size. Hope this cleared things up about how big it kinda has to be.

    Got it. Some pictures of the new cave system in the iceburg were posted, I also made a traitor mine going down to the tip of the iceburg, giving the map a ton more space, I divided it into sections making the map about 2 times as bigger. Those pictures will be posted as soon as I can, I think you'll like it <3

    The map is realy small, remember its 24 players in one timv game. Most of the timv maps are radiuse 60 - 80 if i'm not wrong, And if it's possible please use more then one wood type inside. :)

    Thank you so much for the wood type advice, I tried it out on the interior and it looks 20 times as better, if there's any thing else that you think will help, please let me know.

    Try customizing the trees up beyond the default spruce, and some small berry bushes made add some character to the snow.

    Just design the trees on your own to make them a bit more unique and thematic.

    Dang I wish I had friends to help, i'm not that good at trees, but the outside definitely needs some more work, I added snow on-top of the trees which aren't in the pictures on the post if that's what you mean.
    =================================================================================
    + EDIT + I just changed the uncomplete images to what the map looks like right now.

    I think it's a pretty map but it's a bit small and some of the areas are a bit iffy for pvp, like areas where the ground is very uneven or 2 blocks high ceilings other than that tho it looks good

    To start off, I have noted the two prominent gameplay flaws that this map has and how you will be able to fix these.

    Issue: Total space
    One of the gameplay flaws in this map is that it is simply too small. The problems that will occur here are that triators are simply not able to kill innocents as easily, because the map is so small that everyone sees everything. This would lead to the map becoming heavily advantageous for innocents, to the point where if a few traitors smack some innocents in the water, that there will just be a big brawl in the middle of the map. Your map is also built on one level, adding variety in terraforming levels, but keeping the pvp areas relatively flat, will shift the balance.
    Solution:
    Generally, you want to increase the size of your map, maybe to the point where you are adding another 4-6 medium sized iceberg-islands around your current map. This will make the map more comfortable to play from the traitor side and make everything less crowded.
    I would strongly advice you to redo the tops of your icebergs, make the different tops be at higher levels of each other, add spacious terraforming on top of the icebergs, cover a side of an iceberg with a few peaks, to add more cover for traitors and make killing innocents easier.

    Issue: Walking space
    Another gameplay flaw is that your pathways are relatively thin and small. This is also very visible in the cave you built. Most players, including me, don't like to be crammed into a 2x2 block space and have a pvp fight there. It's rather annoying. Same counts for the bridges you added between the icebergs, they are relatively thin, so it might become too easy for traitors to punch people into the (poisonous?) water.
    Solution:
    To start off, I would recreate the cave, making it atleast 4x4 so that you have enough space for pvp. I would also advice, you make the cave-pathway less steep and add slabs to it, so walking through it will become relatively easy. For fixing the bridges, I would advice you to add at least one extra slab-layer next to it and maybe even adding ballustrades at the side.

    I hope that helps! I will be sending another post relatively soon on how you can improve on a few building things on this map to improve the gameplay even more. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me!
    Cheers!
