Enjoyable game, though I think I'm a bit confused on something. I played through the Ancient Temple, Frontier Outpost, Frontier Plains (I think, not in the game right now), and the River Encampment maps but can't seem to go anywhere else. I've found a few other zone entrances (little blue arrows, right?), one on a bridge, one on the bottom left of the Frontier Outpost, and a few cave entrances. However, whenever I go up to them to try and zone I get the message "Unknown Destination" and nothing happens. This intended (unfinished areas and such, it being an alpha and all?) or am I missing something?

It's alpha. Some of it gets filled in as more material is generated to demo the engine (for instance, the Ancient Temple was new in 0.17, I believe).
