[Map Request] World Map Wantd (maybe Sturm?)

Post by Ashtagon » Sun Jun 28, 2015 7:13 pm

I have a plan for a Mystar mapping project, but I need a base map to work from.

Ideally, I want something similar to http://www.pandius.com/motrwrld.html

However, I need a "clean" version without the hex grid. Or at least, a version that has the hex grid cleaned away from the oceans. Does anyone have such a map, or is Sturm around and able to provide clean or source versions of the maps he made?

Sure I can upload a clean version, but you'll have to wait until July 6th, when I'll return to my main Pc after the current vacation :-)

This is a very early draft of what I am trying to create. The ultimate plan is to use it to make political maps similar to the one I made a while back in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=11801

Sent you a blank set of maps based on some of the unprojected ones... just blue, green, and outline. Let me know if those work for you.

The unprojected versions don't have matching versions with national borders or terrain, which is just as important for the long-term plans of this particular project. That's why i picked that version as teh base map to use -- it already has terrain and political versions floating around, and in the same projection.

Back from vacation but too much work today, tomorrow or the day after I should be able to provide a clear version.... mind that the clearest version I have still has the terrain in hexes (but without the grid in the seas, tags and ice).

Couple of things...

1) I need the seas to be clear of all terrain graphics. It should be a solid colour. I'd prefer it to be without ice caps.

2) I'd prefer the land to be with the existing terrain features present, including both terrain and settlements.

3) My PC apparently can't open a graphics file that is 24,000 pixels wide. Can you resize it to 50% scale? (My final "output" versions will be much smaller that that, but the extra size would still be very useful at the backstage level of editing things).

There we go! Knew you'd come back Sturm.

And while you're at it, can you send me that one as well. I've been trying to help Ashtagon and just have your HUGE jpg.

A 50% clear map with settlements here (don't know how to avoid that Google sites makes long links):

Note that only settlements created in canon or some fanon are present, so Skothar is almost empty and western Davania is full of the not canon settlements I created.

Looks good. One more (minor change)... are your source files in a lossless (e.g., png or gif) format? I noticed a few jpg compression artifacts around the coastlines :?

Ok, here:

Eliminated the previous one.
Png is around 10 mega however (instead of 3), even at 50%

Great work Ashtagon, waiting to see more!

Havard, Evergun was mapped by LoZompatore here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10995&hilit=evergrun with many of the surrounding islands.
I added some more around the seas, particularly in the "Sea Kingdoms" area...
