My first map :)

My goal here was to strike a good balance between an "on rails" map (predetermined optimal path), and the freedom to choose your own way. I'd say it leans a bit more towards the former, but it does offer some nice shortcuts and potential for more agressive moves.

Difficulty-wise, I'd say this is somewhere in the middle field. You will struggle with resources in the beginning, and there's a few things that can catch you off-guard, but there's no evil tricks that can end your run - your base should be safe as long as you don't get too reckless.

I greatly appreciate any feedback, so if you played it, please do let me know what you think  :D

Thanks, great map, I liked it.  A couple false starts until I trusted the green stuff.

Thanks for the feedback :) Glad you enjoyed it!

Yeah, the green stuff is a bit atypical/custom - I just really wanted to go for a strong visual theme, and prioritized the "absorbing rainforest" skin over the stock one. I'm glad it all worked out though!
