    - Map name: Valley
    - Creator(s) of map: Diablio, ItsReapz
    Set in a valley with 2 mountains either side of the map with a bridge that links them, the bridge divides the map with one side being snow and the other Taiga.
    Points of interest:
    • 2 archer towers 1 on either side
    • 3 camps
    • Log cabin
    • Ruined fort
    • Igloo
    • First layer of the bridge connects to 2 tunnels which connect to the main areas
    • Top layer connects to both mountains along with paths that lead up to them
    • Cave
    • Ice forest

    We posted the map a few days ago and it wasn't what it should have been but now we had listened to what people had to say about it and improved and now it looks a whole lot better!


    New trees:

    The size of the map is still too small for 40 players. For example, whenever I play FFA, I am forced to play with 2 chunks render distance. I do this because loading the least amount of chunks means you are also loading the least amount of players, and players make my fps drop significantly. Now, in other maps I have no issue playing with 2 chunks render, but because of this map's size, I expect to have problems. The map is small so the players are far less spread out, forcing my laptop to load more players, reducing my fps.
    Also, the icy lake (or whatever it is) would make for very awkward PvP as it is really difficult to strafe on ice.
    That's all.

    Although it's an improvement, many things on the map are still very plain and basic. You only touched upon some areas while the whole map really needs to be touched up. The trees are just vanilla trees and the ones that aren't don't look so good. Everything besides the bridge and other areas you changed needs more work. Sorry but my answer is no.

    This map is bigger than tropical from what I can see, 40 players is not a problem on this. What I get from your paragraph here is that you dont have a good enough laptop to load many players in a small space which is not a good reason to criticize a map.

    When you say plain do you mean the snow side? Because it's supposed to kind of plain with bumps of snow like like in real life but without loads of stuff to get in the way or players would complain of not getting around easy. The trees I agree could be better, I wanted them to still keep the style of spruce trees. The map is kept fairly plain along with the current maps like flatlands and savannah and I am not saying those maps are not good because I really like them but we wanted them in the same sort of style.

    With what was said above about the map being small I am not really sure what to say because when we are on the map it's definately not small and we have been on the other FFA maps and will say it's bigger than some, and with the ice part it's just a small part of the map you aren't forced to fight there it's like the water parts on others some people dislike it but it can be used to peoples advantage.

    I like the map, but I would not want to play on the ice area and I'm sure the same goes for other players. Also not really feeling it for the structures you made.
    Lastly, this map lacks a lot of detail

    When you say ice area you are talking about the corner part? Also about detail what parts specifically do you think lack detail, and which structures do you dislike and why? Just helps with improving

    It should be more than obvious what I mean if I say "ice part"

    I was talking about detail throughout the entire map and about all structures actually

    I asked because there are two ice parts one in the corner and one in the middle I can see about the corner one being annoying but the middle goes with the map, with the structures what is it you don't like because it's hard to work with when you say you don't like all structures as I think they go quite well with the way the map looks

    Ice area has been put in the attachments to clear up the confusion

    I don't see what's so hard to understand if I say "I'm not feeling it for all structures"
    Just don't like 'em: could be my personal preference or it could just be the structure itself

    It's not that it's hard to understand I see you say it could be your preference and by asking what you don't like about them I was hoping you would say what you don't like about them and maybe what you think would look good in place

    Making the trees better, these new ones I think look more real than the chunky ones

    The ice corners floor is now made from blue glass so players wouldn't slide

    It looks fine, but I don't think there will be people around the ice area, because it would be difficult to pvp on ice ;)

    Not sure what to say, right now a designer made an FFA map over a year ago and it still hasn't been added, which is pretty bad. I know a lot of people asked for more ffa maps, basically more every maps people just always want more. Anyways off topic.

    I appreciate a lot of effort has gone into this, and you've thought about the different kits like having a nice wooden archery tower. Not sure how to give proper feedback other than can you make it look nicer. Make them all custom trees, not just one. Don't have snow clumps it's bad to pvp on, use cobble or rocks to hide behind rather than snow. Snow is glitchy and awkward. How old is this map out of curiosity? it feels like it was made 5/6 years ago, just the bonemeal you have used only has yellow and red flowers. That's really strange. All the blocks you've used are basic vanilla minecraft, stone, grass, ice, cobble. Nothing really shouts colour, creative, trendy, new. I would look on PMC personally and see how experienced talented builders use colourful block palletes.

    I agree with the red and yellow flowers do give it an old Minecraft look (I guess I was a little worried of going too over the top with stuff, not sure why) I changed that and I removed all of the default trees and hand made them instead and I think they give it a nice look now. I also removed the snow clumps, I still want to go over some stuff but I made a little video to show the trees:
