    It's just a map yet, anyone can do that with L3dT in half an hour,
    and any of those maps looks about the same.

    If you want it to be a great map then do some sculpting, add plain flat areas for villages,
    make nice roadlevelling, maybe also add some train lines or a port,
    then fill it with a lot of roads and buildings, that's what makes your map something great or something boring.

    I used L3DT before, and I build a crawling map in like 2 hours. If anybody wants to attemp an import for me (I read all the wikis and FAILED!) I would be appreciated I built it a long time ago for a game called 1insane

    You shoudn't give up on importing a map into RoR. If you follow the wiki exactly it usually works every time. I find however, the tutorial is a little outdated, and the idea of copying the files from Aspen Grove might confuse a few people.
