    Plains



    "You wake up in a strange place. You are scared, you hear fighting outside and go to the
    window to take a look. A massive battle is raging on in the field near where you awoke,
    there does not appear to be any teams. You grab the armour and weapon by your bed and run outside to fight for glory, or for death."

    (Hue Thanks for the idea PureEpicness)


    Mechanics


    This map is based on a plains biome, following the idea of the FFA map "Desert".
    It seems to have been a while since the release or "update" on the current FFA maps, and myself along with xIRoss and leemoh decided there should be a change.
    Our map "Plains" has buildings, structures, innovative ways to escape people chasing you
    whilst making the map look nice. We have kept areas of flatland for PvP, and keeping the FnS idea possible by cutting down on the areas of grass. The map looks beautiful at night, therefore should this map be accepted day/night should be enabled ;).

    Love it i like how much space it takes up, it makes it a lot more easier to get away in sticky situations.

    Bumping! Also, this thread counts as our map submission. There's no dedicated area for that on these forums, and we're happy with our map as of now :D

    Matt's awesome review of cats :3
    Buildings:
    Looking at this map, I have to say the buildings are excellent! This one here is my favourite.

    Throughout the map, all the builds were excellent quality.
    The only criticism I can think of was this swan
    here looked slightly out of place.

    Over than that the builds were practically perfect. They have really excellent detailing, and follow a nice theme.


    Overall build rating - 9.5

    Terraforming:

    This is quite a flat map, though it looks excellent for PvP. I really like the tree in the centre.
    One thing I really like is how the centre is open, while the outside has tree's.


    My only improvement on the terraforming is that you can see the flat world outside from the map (found here), it would have been nice to have seen some terraforming on the outside.


    Overall terraforming rating - 9

    Map overall:
    • Love the fact that there is some bone meal but not too much
    • All custom tree's would be nice, but there are some really nice ones around the edge
    • I love the layout!
    Altogether rating - 9.5


    This is an excellent map. My only advice would be to add some more outside terraforming and it would be perfect.

    Well done!

    The Swan was a bit of a joke and it probably won't be in the final build, and I can certainly do more work on the land outside the dome. Thanks for the feedback, it's greatly appreciated! :D

    Thanks for all the feedback guys. This also counts a little bump to get more opinions on the map, they all seem to be glowing so far <3
