Hi VeeZa,

All sorts of improvements and features can be added, however those require two things.
  1. Interest from the community
  2. Cooperation with MCSG staff
Thanks for the input though, and a list of the most desired features will be composed at a later date :)

Kind Regards
Swiftwork

Aside from the chest marking aspect of the maps, I really like this.

The application is 90% done, and nearly all functionality is there, if you exclude the tips section. Currently what's left is:
  1. Finishing of tutorial page
  2. Additional Maps
  3. Stats requires updated personal statistics pages.

We realized that the chests might cause divided opinions, however we reasoned that they are inaccurate enough to give the player an overview of where they are, but not how/where they can be found.

I love this, I can't wait to beta test it. (public beta test, correct?)
