Hey guys,
Here's a map I began working on yesterday. It's a fantasy version of the Minecraft server community buxville.net. The map does not resemble the actual server map, it's just what I dream it could be. Town names are taken from real towns on the server. Buxville is both the name of the server, and its capital city.

Really really WIP, had just begun forests. Tell me what you guys think or advice :>

Looks good, I like the water ripples about the continents. I think it would be cool to see more colour variation on the land.

Really liking the details on this. I'm not a massive fan of the font you've used, and using a hollowed out font generally makes it hard to read when it goes over he top of the terrain (eg. the Chat Mountains at the bottom) and you should really avoid putting labels over the top of each other as it looks a little messy (mapping aside labeling really is a skill in itself). Other than that I'd say try and and some extra colour to the sea and maybe a little texture (though I would keep it subtle as I think it's quite striking being plainer).

Look forward to seeing how this progresses :)
