Remy Monsen has challenged the community to create maps of snow and ice (i.e. winter-themed) for the Community Atlas Project. Already two beautiful maps have been created by Shessar and Lorelei, but there are a few more to go before the Atlas reaches the goal of 400 maps! There are still three weeks to go on this challenge, so hop over, check the forum thread, and whip out those ice and snow textures!

As always, it’s just a small selection of the many maps posted on the forum and the Facebook community. Thanks to everyone for sharing!
