Our map seems to have taken a turn for the phallic.
We should still try and push the map out in the other directions as well... if for no other reason than to get rid of the ugly map fragments.
The way the information I've seen reads, we'll never get jungle, because it will only spawn in worlds which were initiated after the jungle update.
I had suggested to CB and Ben that you wait until 1.2 came out so you could get Jungle since apparently they don't follow the normal "new chunks have new features" rule.
Assuming the Red pointer in the compass rose is North, there is something built to the north of town quite a long way out, also to the south. Are those naturally occurring settlements or something you guys built?
