Maps Part II

Recommended Posts

I made a thread about the situation on our maps some time ago and i am really working on getting maps done for my guild but with geometry like this it's impossible or at least the most cumbersome work. I was starting to map today and was already at the handdrawing aspect when it hit me.

Why should i as a customer invest tons of hours in getting the map TOP DOWN when devs can add a top down option without perspective.

this thread is a reminder to the devs how useless coordinates are on the map right now, this thread is a reminder for you that perspectives are NOT welcome on a map!

This is a screenshot of the current Krim Kingdom portal to chaos temple, i would never have guessed that it stands where it stands right now, even with tools like gimp it's a nightmare to find out parcel locations.

This portal actually stands on T12 | U12 | T11 | U11

Please for the unholy art of Fantasy mapping, give us a map view we deserve, non perspective, top down.

If this were a regular MMO with a static map I'd be inclined to bite the bullet and just get to work on something like that.

With the map changing each campaign and campaigns lasting anywhere from about 2 days less than a month maximum right now, it's completely impractical. The maps generated for us need to be more useful.

seriously the worst map I’ve ever seen in any game I’ve played. 

Who ever thought this was a good idea needs a slap to the back of the head. 

Since the map must have been created by a child of 12, I would say slapping the child is a bit out of line.

Could anyone tell that child that it's not so hard to add a button for top down, orthogonal view?

You can choose to do so before or after the slapping occurred. ^^

North should be at top of the map and not in that weird 45° angle

should be more like this:
