    I didn't like the forest. And the criticism on my coastlines bothered ma as well... So i put some work into it again... and here are the results:
    The forest textures are taken from Pedrov, who posted them in the mapping elements section.

    Hey, great improvement!

    I do have 2 small critiques though, I'm no expert these are just things I've noticed. First the rivers seem a bit too dark they contrast too greatly with the oceans. Maybe making them the same colour as the ocean so they blend into each other would help. Second, up in the northern area you have a light tan landmass that doesn't seem to go with the snow, it just seems to too warm next to the white, also the transition from the white to the tan is a bit abrupt which makes the contrast between the two more noticeable.

    Again, I'm no expert, these two things are just things that maybe you could change or fiddle with.

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    The longest river has no tributaries. Probably not impossible, but definitely odd. The land mass looks a lot better now. Note that you now have two lakes colored like the ocean and one lake colored like the rivers. However, given the lack of rivers connecting the new lakes to the ocean, perhaps they are inland seas (salt water), which would explain the color difference.
