Here's a render of the current map. Thanks to Luminar for finding me Cartograph G.




Luminar, I made some minor tweaks to stuff in the town. Little bit in front of the subway entrance and the road just outside the front gate. I gave the bunkhouse a basement and more beds. Also, there's a ladder to the second floor/rooftop. Not sure if adding another floor is all that necessary but we'll see.
Was wondering if you could spiff up that guard tower thing now that times have changed a bit. It's a little wonky.

How big are your renders? I did mine in MCMap and was getting file sizes of about 20MB when we were at our largest. :(

This one was about a 4 mb PNG originally. It wasn't stupidly huge as your map though, since yours featured Herp Derpingson's Grand Overland Escapade.
I tend to also compress them pretty well as JPG. About 75% according to irfanview here, which is what I use.

But yeah, I think one of my biggest map renders came out to about 20 mb. That was around the point where I stopped with frequent map rendering because it took forever, was a huge drain on the machine, and I could never get the file size below 10 mb without drastic cropping. And even then, any attempt to include all the major stuff, spread out as it was, would have the heavily compressed and cropped jpeg coming in at 6 mb.
I dunno. I just find it a bit unreasonable expecting everybody to bother loading something like that up. These things don't serve much of a purpose anyway, aside from being an amusing little sideshow.

So, is the thing about Creepers struck by lightning being more powerful true? I'd Wiki it, but I'm lazy. :P

A Blitzkreeper (yes i'm calling them that, bite me) explosion is apparently twice as powerful, which would equate to instant death on most difficulties. Dunno how armour factors into this but you'd probably still take a hell of a whack.

Also I need to better research how lava ignites nearby flammables. I built a nice sky garden (even took the hours to grow grass up onto it) over the bay, with trees and all such. On my way back down, dismantling the bridge, what else do I see but all the trees going up in flames. At least the lamps, water and grass are still up there - still, I had the lava covered over by dirt so I assumed it'd be fine.

That's just a retarded thing to say. So you'd rather we go through the trouble of either looking up the info or stupidly spoon-feeding you what we found out ourselves, just so you can save on a little bit of effort?
That's just selfish.

Dude, this mapping feature he is making sounds AWSOME. It's like a Marauder's Map.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Looks like I am going to be voicing a character on a Minecraft series that's a parody of Game of Thrones.  :D

I'm assuming you mean the first episode? That was really good!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I put a bulletin board in Monster Town guys. It's a bit tall, but hey.
Also got a bulletin on there. Let me know if you can help with that. I've pretty much taken all the cooblestone I could find.
Might have to go a-digging.

It's lazy, not selfish. If I were being selfish, I wouldn't even try to jokingly justify not Wiking it. [/overreacting]
