    I think the mountains a very amazing 0w0 How did you make them! but I have some things you could change. 1. the map is way too small. How could traitors hide in the map? You could extend the mountains for awhile to make it fair. 2. the buildings are wayy to plain, you need a lot more block variability on them. Maybe look up tutorials on how to make fancy buildings! 3. there is too many fences in the map, if you want to keep people from going out then use barrier blocks! Command: /give @p barrier or /give <yourname> Barrier 1- how many you want.4. you should look at other maps for ideas, also you need to develop a strong theme. is your map a forest? mountain town? adjust accordingly.

    Thanks alot ulyk! Anyway: 1. I might add A: Some cave Systems. B: Possibly buildings on the sides of mountains. C: Sewers like on Silent Valley
    2. The buildings actually have Mossy Brick, Cracked Brick, Cobble, and Mossy Cobble. By the way, I will add as much detail as possible.
    3. I know about the fence, but the fence on the sides of the paths are actually there just for deco. I actually am currently adding some barrier on sides a few blocks up so it doesnt effect the gammaplay. 4. This map is based on the old map "Silent Valley". I played it a VERY long time ago (about 2-3 years), but it was removed. I dont remember all of it, so im using photos on google and also imgur. It's theme is sort of an abandoned village that has been taken over by the forces of nature. Main theme:
    Ancient Temple. Anyway, I hope this answered your questions! Thank you for them, as it helps alot!

    Heres my honest opinion:

    Good:
    Nice Terrain
    How you actually made a map, it's a good thing to do!

    Not so Good:
    The Size is WAY too small
    The buildings look boring with hardly any blocks
    Not enough buildings.
    There is like 1 block scattered snow blocks everywhere. I would personally say puddles of snow???

    I think with a bit of work this map has a lot of potential. The main thing I can see that's kinda bugging me and might make me not want to actually use the map is the lack of variation in the blocks. Stone bricks are a nice block but I think there's a bit too much of it. If you go on right now and check out other TIMV maps you'll see that most have a good variation and aren't mainly just 1 block type

    Im not necessarily sending it to them for adding... It's for some feedback! ;)

    I am also going to possibly change the name to "Expedition"
    Anyway, I'm building old cameras, campfires, and tents because I am trying to add more detail and just
    overall stuff.
