This should be the vanilla looking map. It's just perfect.

Best looking map mod ever and author has forgotten it...

Doesnt work anymore mate

We love this mod so much, so is it possible to ask the Devs to update the map with this Theatrum mod? Or make it an option to use? The vanilla map looks like play-doh; I think the game would benefit from a visual refresh anyway...
