    A new map was one of my major things that I woud reccomend for the server. It would bring a sense of variety in the maps and playstyle of everyone too! It looks amazing for a map to be played on. I love it! :)

    It looks like a lot of work went into this map! If I had to rate it, I would give it an 8/10.

    Pros:
    • Lots of building space
    • Private rooms
    • Some nice decorations, always a plus
    • Similar to our current map
    • More rooms
    • A little jail for bad players?
    • Nice lighting
    • Nice skybox
    • It's HUGE
    • Long range weapons will be less obsolete
    My only issue with this map is the size. I'm used to our very small map and moving to a map of this size would take a lot of getting used to. Not to mention, our current weapons would have trouble hitting props on the other side of the map. Which means we would have to utilize things such as boat motors, thrusters and harpoons.

    I had this thought myself, but it'd have to be tested in-game first. The map is actually the exact same length as canals, but it's a bit wider. If it needs to be shrunk a little on the sides I don't have a problem doing that.

    Edit:
    I take that back, canals has a lot of unused behind the walls that I was factoring in. So yeah it could probably use some shrinking.

    It's not a terrible thing, I'd be more interested to see/hear what our playerbase would think. We can always launch a 3rd server as a test to see if it is popular or not. We can also rotate maps and ask players for feedback.

    I think having a 3rd server to test the map is a great idea. If the players enjoy it then they will start to move more towards it. If not then it can be removed and the current map could stay. I see this new map as a great extension to the community as well, because a new test server could mean a larger flow of players coming into the community if there was map variety.

    It would have to be tested on the TEST servers first, if @Frozen♡Humanity could Maybe prep it to have all of us test it on July 2nd (the next conference) we could see how it'd play out. If Not we could always do it another time

    Yea if all of those who are staff would try it out at some point, I think me as a part of the non-staff community would love to see a new map (if it was tested) and shown as enjoyable!

    It should work out of the box with your gamemode, besides adjusted door positions and custom teleports removed.

    Everytime a map is introduced, we never manage to see it in-game. I won't comment anything utnil I see this idea applied.
