You wouldn’t be able to tell the map is only 80% complete if you’ve ever had the pleasure of exploring Valhalla. With land mass and water area 6 times that of the normal island, it’s enough to keep you exploring for days. The amount of work that went into creating this map is nothing to underestimate. Beautiful vistas and abundant areas of exploration makes this a community and dev favorite!
Although Roraima doesn’t have the following of some of the other maps in the workshop, it absolutely blew us away! The naturalistic land formations and the strategic layout of this map makes it a standout entry in the category. While it isn’t as big as some of the other maps, it is clearly a map that makes you feel like you’ve been transported to a real-life area in the world. The team were literally shocked at the natural beauty in this map.
Ummassoura is another massive map that is a truly unique entry in the map category. We were taken back by the massive caves, breathtaking waterfalls, and diversity in the creatures that live in each of the uniquely placed biomes. The level of detail and care that was taken in creating this map was evident and greatly acknowledged by the team.
4. Madagaskar Evolved
There aren’t many maps that make you feel as if you are in a specific place in the world. We fell in love with Madagascar Evolved and its ability to accomplish this with its stylistic approach in its level design. Immediately we felt as if we were flown to a safari in the middle of Africa and left to survive with the vicious animals that call it home. We see a very bright future for Madagascar Evolved!
Wick Willow gave us an unforgettable experience when exploring its unique set of biomes. Each biome is distinctly different from the next which provides for an interesting set of challenges and gameplay experiences. We walked away with an appreciation for the strategic vision that went into the creation of this stunning map.
6. Honorable Mention – Epic Islands
We couldn’t think of a better name to describe this map. It’s vast landmass provides the perfect opportunity for exploring and building an epic base. Although it’s still a work in progress, one can’t help but to imagine what this map will look like once it’s complete. I know we’ll be keeping our eye out!
