this is awesome!  OwO
tho does the world map show real statistics?
whenever i send a bunch of llamas, they aren't visible on the map for some reason ;w;

The world map is run by dA so it incorporates everyone using the site. There's so many people doing so many things that your activity isn't going to be noticeable on there.
