I made a suggestion before I left the staff a few years ago that we could have small jungle map with a temple inside of it somewhere further up in the world.

If you went into this temple there would be a magic crystal floating on a pedestal and if you walked close to it you'd get teleported into another sort of more fantasy like world/map(s) that would have floating platforms and other more, unnatural things that could make a fun time to explore, but not necessarily walk all over the more down to earth environments and maps spreading out in "Feral Lands". It would be a nice way to implement more funky maps like climbing maps with platforms suspended in thin air, but if the staff ever took that idea into consideration afterwards I do not know.
I like the idea, would it be game breaking to put the portal hidden in those ruins in cherika valley if the jungle never came to be?

They might have an old thing, one example is a favourite bowl or dish, it's broken, pieces are missing, why fix it?  With gold and pieces from other dishes?

I really like that idea. I do believe that the staff did consider some suggestions regarding maps having those floating rocks around, as I saw a lot of those in the WIP patch. Also now I can see why Sura commented on this post saying what she said ;)
I like the idea of having a jungle map, as there is no such thing right now.

Not game breaking, just don't see it "as" suitable as that map has a quite well established look and purpose, but if no other Jungle map would be on the radar I don't see why some sort of temple could be made into the side of the mountain somewhere in the future. Though I really have no paws in the patch work at the moment nor did I intend to ask if I could dive head first into it unless it was asked from me. Just throwing out old stuff that was talked about briefly years ago.

Interesting idea, let us all parkour please.

Fully agree with you! That would be pretty neat to have. It would be nice and creative to see that placed in the game. I hope one day we can see this placed in our game!

I liked the idea too, thought maybe platforms supported by vines in the existing world would be a nice compromise.

I’m not sure why I didn’t see this, but I would love all of this. Very good suggestions!
For some reason I’ve always wanted a map with a huge hallowed tree in the middle of it, and people would be able to climb to the top and chill with friends.

I absolutely adore these ideas and would love to see these implemented.
