    thanks for the interest, though no, not yet. still struggling to find a key that im happy with and combing the internet for new fonts to see if i can find something better for the areas. Dafont.com has far too many fonts for its own good

    Well I think itís time I call this one done, at least for the purposes of producing a Ďfinished versioní on this site.

    This map is something of a work-map for me and my worldbuilding. As I add more history to the world and detail regions, Iíll invariably come back to the original PSD and edit it. Much like the real world, the world of Elyden is very much a living place (ok, starting to sound crazy here but Iíd like to think Iím amongst fellow worldbuilders here who know what I meanÖ), so the PSD will never truly be done, but thereís a time to call things a day. I could spend ages tinkering with colour adjustments and whatnot, though Iím happy with this for now.

    Iím posting a low-quality jpg here (4.4 mb Ė the original flattened image is about 75 mb, so a lot of detail was lots in the compression) to show the current state, though Iíll keep on updating this thread as I make any changes to the original map. Any feedback is more than welcome and a lot of the changes Iíve already made to this are thanks to constructive feedback, so please let me know if thereís anything you donít like or any mistakes you notice. Well I think itís time I call this one done, at least for the purposes of producing a Ďfinished versioní on this site. I'm also going to post a finished map thread in which I'll. Divide the map into quarter for a bit more detail.

    Truly spectacular. It is a joy seeing it finished.

    It doesn't just look good; it really feels like an exotic, mysterious ancient Middle Eastern world.

    If you ever decide to upload the full version, I would indeed enjoy checking it out.

    As I previously said, this is by far one of my favourite maps.

    thanks

    here's a version you can zoom into, though the detail is still reduced from the original.

    EDIT: and the finished map thread is here

    haha! thanks. actually that's the main goal, and this map is just something to help me do that. I'd like to do a world atlas at some point...

    Simply magnificent. Just spent the last hour reading the thread from the start... only one left in the building now! Repworthy indeed!

    lol, thanks!

    I just found a pretty blatant mistake - the map border on the bottom of the page is missing a 5degree mark on the graticule. That's been fixed now.

    Other than that I've already started tinkering again, adding more locations to regions away from the Inner Sea, as they're looking a bit bare compared to some other regions. Guess this shows the work is never really complete!
