Great Map, but as others have said the shadows during the day are totally dark. I have tried to adjust video for issue with not much success. It's wierd that I have to use a torch during the day to find the door! LOL! Keep up the great work!

Can't play this map. Island and center working very well and without lags on my old laptop. But on this map i can't join on any server.

@Quinndalin it's a random issue, sometimes it happens sometimes not. Still figure out if it's only the map or not.

@*☆CaptainFail☆* werde mit dem nächsten updaten die custom spawns im redwood reduzieren, dann sollte es passen.

I'm not sure if this is an issue with the map or not but I thought I'd mention it since I noticed it after switching to this map. All of my textures seem to be lower quality.
