downloaded the map and checked it in the editor because i don't have time for playing but quick check of map design and start resources :)
anyway good work for your First map! if it is so...
About Design: Well... you could have done better, Re-read the mapmaking 101 for desert areas because it was quite normal but shrubs my friend shrubs! i didn't find any shrub on the map.
i don't know if u did it on purpose but looks like you would have to buy stone for yourself. didn't find no iron or Stone, but i don't know what you thought making this, so i don't want to be negative.
there might be some other tiny minuses but those ones are quite small.
Continue to Advance in Map Making skills my friend! For a first map this is a Good map!
