pmc shut down my map along with all others that were created with grey-scale height maps.
others have taken it upon themselves to host download locations. Google Groups Minecraft Teachers is one i can think of off the top of my head. check them out and find the america map topic for a download.
pmc's action took the wind out of my sails.. i stopped development because i was kinda let down by them. so the blank map is all that will be available.
i think my minecraft days are over anyways. i ship to navy bootcamp on feb 26th ill be in for 6 years on subs. (no internet under water lol) so i hope you all enjoy what i have managed to finish. my partner kytten has the current map with all of the cities on a server and iv left it to her to decide to release it or not. its a massive file and a pain in the ass to with.
Thank you guys again for all of your support. it meant alot to me
