No, actually. I made that picture in 5 minutes in Paint, just to be a rough guide for what I'm actually doing - it will be improved eventually. Paint isn't difficult to use, y'know, and I don't know why an in-game region map generator would ever be invented.

What I'm doing is improving the example maps that come with Essentials. The region map I showed off is what the example world will look like (barring a few possible tweaks). It'll be more world-like, and have more features in it.

I should say that I haven't really ever made any maps, which is why most of them will be copies from the official games, and the rest will be of dubious quality. I don't know how long it'll take me, either. A very rough estimate tells me I've got 60 maps to make.

If you want to discuss the layout of the world, go ahead. Any suggestions would be welcome.
