total-landmass-example-copy.jpgImage EnlargerOKIE DOKIE. Here's a simplified version of what I've got so far. Now for the annoying part: I need locations and names.

 

I'm going to start identifying on my own what I can, but I know I can't name places past Capetown, Baywalk and Vetronia. So take this as an example of what the whole world map will look a little like, then I'll post an example of a smaller land area.

One more addition: this is a map showing how I broke up the world into regions. I tried to split the land along geographic/intelligent lines, as if people gradually separated these lands themselves over the years. So they follow waterways if possible, small land-lines, major biome changes (forest to desert for example) and things like that. There aren't any arbitrary separations just for sizes sake.

It could also work out well for those of you who want to do lore for the world.total-landmass-regions-example.jpgImage Enlarger

Looking good, Pherian. I'll start thinking up some names for the different areas.
@light: I'll tell you what I think about the wiki stuff in a different post later.

I have awesome shoulders.

You pointed at the wrong island for Vetropolis. 😛 The one you pointed at is Kamemura.

 

Anyway, here is a map with a lot of points, not all but quite a bit. Not all portalships are on here but I tried labelling most big residential areas that have names. I used home for private property, hometown for areas that are like a settlement but closed, village for gatherings of residences that actually have a name and city for places that welcome a lot of citizens within residenced-as-a-whole place.

A: Vetropolis, Spawn City
B: Kamemura, Squi's hometown.
C: Paradil Island, Meatbawllz' primary home.
D: Capetown, Okarim's city.
E: Baywalk, Pherian's village.
F: Dreyzden, Pauli's hometown.
G: Laggindale, Phunn's home.
H: Bilgewater, jon's+bonzai's city.
I: Panama Canal.
J: Palmanova, Palthor's city.
K: Navarro, Sibbit's city.
L: Rhodes, lilmack's city.
M: Highmoor, LightWarriorK's city.
N: Bonavista, ToxicDwarf's city.
O: Guslandia, Capetown's freebuild colony city.
P: Terra Falls, Salcedo's hometown.
Q: Dustlandia, Zenzar's home.
R: FHQ, frelling's home.
S: White Harbour, Rikkido's hometown.
T: Scottland, scottie's city.
U: Vetra, Emulated's+toot's city.
V: Oasis, gunnerling's city.
W: Avalon, spent's+kim's city.
X: Meat Mountain, meat's secondary home.
Y: Turtle Bay, Council land.
Z: Frontier Village, Capetown's frontier gateway.

Vetra actually owns the land on it's right all the way to the staircase right before Oasis. Vetra Bay (directly to our right) is where we're going to host our harbour. The peninsula south of Oasis is called Rue.

I also noticed your ship has a bigger hull than my flagship. =P Sounds like a good place for mine to go, to accompany yours. If possible I wouldn't mind it serving as connection to both places.

OKA, you're awesome.

I've got a bunch of other pictures that have squares indicating where I've seen locations. Some might be redundant, you can ignore those now. And a bunch might be NPC villages. Regardless, I did my best to indicate where they are.

Here's the group. Hope they all fit. Oh, and this is not how the final maps will look, I'm just using screens from the dynmap so you can see what's what.northwestern-continent-main-copy.jpgImage Enlargersouthern-continent-main-copy.jpgImage Enlargersouthwest-continent-main-copy.jpgImage Enlargervetropolis-continent-main-copy.jpgImage Enlargerwestern-continent-main-copy.jpgImage Enlargernorthern-continent-main-copy.jpgImage Enlargercentral-continent-main-copy.jpgImage Enlargernortheastern-continent-main-copy.jpgImage Enlarger

A lot of those places are abandoned property or privateplaces that don't really have big names or purpose, but I'll try to help get you names and info on a bunch later. There's also an area reserved for a huge castle, an area reserved for a new construction of Zenzar, an area that someone wants to turn into a city, lots of places like that.

Yeah, that's cool, no rush. I'll name what I can, make the map as nice as possible, and then put it forward for review. If people want to add more to it, simply let me know.

I'll get some more done tomorrow on the individual areas. So far I'm liking how it looks. Should have something to show by tomorrow afternoon (morning I've got a presentation to do to our local officials on hurricanes and why they're bad). :)

Thanks for the help, Oka!

Don't forget Hydriquin. Kiss Here's where it is:

I'll try to find out what some of those areas are soon, Pherian.

Those are such beautiful maps!  I can also say I like the color of the deserts in the region maps better.  In the Vetronia map they blend in with the "water" too much.

My area is in the Southwest "area"  There's a pretty big island towards the bottom that's split in half by a river.  The west part shall be called Freya and the east part shall be called Alexandra. 😀

This is my signature and I hope you enjoy it. - Dalferes

The mountain range and surroundings at the northern part of the Southwest region, which Highmoor is in, can I name it "The Xhoirhian Highlands?" (pronounced "zsho-EAR-ee-an").  It's from an old story I wrote for the game Spore, but never had a chance to use because Spore was awful.  I'd still like to use it in some way here.

To Dal and Light: done and done.

I hear you about the deserts and the water. Trying to find a solution to that problem that doesn't make me use blue or color the "water" if possible. I'd like to keep it as old-mappy as possible for now.

Doing some naming now. Whee!

This is a version of what I'm thinking the regional maps may look like. I'm going to try and indicate the larger areas of interest on this map, and try not to clutter it with landscape names. We can zoom into areas as well if people want to go into detail, but I figured if people want true detail they'll go to the dynmap. This is to give them a taste of what the world has to offer, not to show them every little house.

That being said, I did some quick sketches of the layouts of Capetown and Drezyden to roughly show what they look like. If you think that works, I'll try to do the same thing for other major areas (especially Vetropolis, which I plan to do a large amount of detail in). So Oka and Pauli, if you want to give names to those buildings or areas of your town I can note them on the main map to give visitors some sort of direction.

Hm... Not many places at Capetown that could benefit from a label. There's the Mall, but that one is under construction, the mansion district, the slums, warehouses... All I can think of is mansion area (on the left), harbour district (NE corner), residential area (everything else) and the community farm (the part stick out on the left), as well as the 2 port areas (north of the town and to its east).

 

The canal isn't that huge truth be told. :) Then again, at a width of 17, there exists only 2 ships that might not be able to go through it. The first would be Ryan's, I think, the second is the ship under construction at Vetra. And since the walls are only 5 high, even those might be able to make it through.

The Bonavista Canal, on the other hand, is also quite big. :) But I didn't have a hand in that.

Really like the naval-force comment! 😀

If my ship can go through, then the ones at spawn can haha. Mine is about two blocks wider.

One more example image. I'm not going to do any more until I've got some locations and names for things, it's just annoying to go back and add a bunch of stuff to something that is almost entirely put together. :)

Hopefully this will give you a pretty decent idea of what the final versions should look like.

Not at huge deal, but "Hydraquin" should be "Hydriquin" for that map. Kiss
