Finished watching :)

There is a nice difference between the first screenshot and the final work, everything is well explained, although I think you missed a few points (perhaps on purpose since it's the basics?).

I like the comment that says "people is still mapping like 1998" (paraphrasing) and that's so true! I think some people doesn't still know that you can do some planning before hand. Also, if you have no ideas, copy areas from games at least! Im not saying "copy the whole" level, but you can defintely get inspiration and your maps will look tons better.

I don't see how "realistic" could be a problem in designing a map. You can have a map based on real-life and still having a fun level. Problem is not on the theme you use, but in the execution.

That's all, loved this stuff!
