As a player who is free, I have limited access to Runescape Map. This is not an issue. I was looking at the map this morning and was struck by how much actual land has been added over the past eight(8) years. years. It's only been eight years since the last piece of land was added to the mainland. This is because there isn't enough space for expansion.
Jagex does not want to change their programming and remove the lake from the island. They have been able to get around the water barrier by using islands for new content. But they can't do this long enough to lose the feeling of being on a continent.
The Mainland seems to be primarily based on Europe, or at the very least the European culture. Europe. Karamja with its jungles, tribesmen and savages seems to be an example of Africa. Africa was once referred to as the "Heart of Darkness" by Europeans in earlier times. This was a land of unknowing and death. However, that's not the case today. It's too old-fashioned. For one, it's very small, at minimum when compared to mainland. It also lacks high quality content.
It is possible to argue that Legends Quest represented the "heart-of-darkness" feeling associated Africa when it first launched. It was this because it was the grand daddy to all the quests at the time. But now the finishing the Legends Quest only proves that you are nothing more than an average player, and that's why Karamja has lost the dark feeling.
Do you think it would be beneficial to have developers redo specific areas of this map to add more content? Do you think the challenge of this task is too much? While it is not easy but it can keep the old areas exciting and new for many high-level players.
