    I've said before I've played on the idle server for quite a while, but only once did i see a map change (Wasn't really a change it was just a recolored version) This i believe was 2 or maybe 3 years ago. I was thinking it would be nice if we could have a new map to try out on the idle server. Of course I may be the one with the unpopular opinion as always.

    I searched quite a bit but most of the maps i found were crap or were old. the best I found was this

    The map has changed *I think* a few times in the past 2 years and was changed back for one reason or another. Not sure why, but I like the current map so I'll have to -1

    The awesomebox map was carefully designed by myself (with later edits by Kincryos) after my extensive experience with how people play on idle servers. And it is now the most popular idle map for the same reason.

    Other maps simply aren't as good. They make a lot of design mistakes such as being too big and not allowing people to spawn camp, and simply rely on the novelty of having different settings which people will get bored with in months.

    Awesomebox9 could use an update, but I don't see anything that is better overall.
