What Type Of Custom Map

Firstly you have to kow.. does one really wish to form this map? 
Am i about to quit halfway?
Do I actually have the time?

If you think you do then scan on..

Firstly you wish to make a decision what time of Custom map you wish to try to do;

Puzzle - various Puzzles made using redstone machines are what these types of maps usually are made of. So if you want to do this you will need atleast a basic understanding of building 

with redstone.

Adventure - a Main quest to realize a goal. Usually those who make these maps start off building some sort of village. It is somewhat difficult to make a map that stands out.

RPG - a lot of very little quests with no main plot line, takes alot of your time and dedication and you wont want to do this if your short on time. Can require more than a month of extra work.

Complaints on the Terrain :(

Before I hated people who said the terrain was boring... but it is REALLY flat. i guess i must agree now. While I'm in love with oceans and mushroom lands and jungles, there's not as much interesting stuff on the planet. I really wish that jeb would put back in what notch took out: Mountain land forms.

By that I mean not a mountain biome, but allowing allowing mountains to spawn in any biome on their own. That was one reason that the 1.7.3 generator was so exceptional.

I think it would be cool if mountains were integrated in the world generator much like lakes are now. With them being randomly dispersed anywhere. It could spawn in plains, to allow villages to be at the crescendo of the world. Even in oceans so you could have a  Volcano looking thing. Heck, they could even spawn in swamps. Allowing for some pretty cool trash to happen.

Also, Jeb needs to put back the gravel beaches. They were so cool and actually realistic for some places like alsaka.

More Ocean Mobs!

I have always wondered why  the HUGE and biggest of the biomes has the least mobs. So after thinking about it for a while and talking to some friends I came up with these:Birds sting rays, Piranha or other undersea predators), underwater treasure chests, guarded by ocean mobs that are friendly away from the treasure, but attack you within 10 blocks of the treasure chest .Lastly just lobsters cause there awsome and a fancy food :).

Birds: spawn randomly around oceans but must spawn away from other birds. Fly in the air. Are hostile when the player is holding a fish. They would be 1 by 2 blocks in size.

sting rays: spawn naturally on the sea floor with depths of atleast 8 blocks.Only do damage when you are touched by them. Passive.

Pihrana. Same mechanics as any other hostile mob but rarer and spawns in water. Fast

Treasure chest: description in list above/\ could be guarded by some type of j
Jellyfish or something.

Lobster: spawn on beaches. hostile. small amount of hears 2 or 3, they would do 1 heart of damage per hit.
