I thought this map was really boring
Until I started my exploring.
I journeyed west of true North-West
And there I found the very best
That this map has to share.
Leave the place where you begin
And go for an extended swim
Then cross the desert next to green
And you will find a mountain scene
that soars into the air.

This is the island you start from. Animals will spawn here which (with the trees) will make this place livable. But the best stuff is on the mainland to the WNW.

These coordinates should get you to the good stuff.
