    If I do this with Arden, it would sure kill me first
    I adore your passion for accuracy, even if thats meaning that we will wait long time to enjoy the full map.

    ok, after a few necromantic posts I figured I'd post a bit of work on this map. Though I say necromantic, the project is not at all dead, just on a very slow thaw, so-to-speak I'm not doing much work on this - maybe adding 10-or-so labels a day, when I have chance to. You might notice though that neither of the pictures below have any labels. The map is so big I’d have to split it up into at least 6 separate images to get any detail to show up, so I figured I’d just show a tiny version to give an overall feel of the map (for anyone interested, the full map is 25,347 x 16,200 px ).

    The two maps below are the old and new versions, respectively. The main difference are that the text in the new version will be on the bottom, which makes more sense if you think of this as a real map that might once have graces the office of a lord of king – anyone wanting to read it would have no chance of deciphering the tiny text if it was on the top of the map.

    Also, another change is the positioning of the moon and star maps. The old map places the northern hemisphere on the top-left, the southern hemisphere on the bottom-left, with the moons on the right. The new map places the moons on the top left, with the north hemisphere and the southern hemisphere on the bottom left and right respectively. I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on the different positioning? I actually think I prefer the older positioning, though there’s a symmetry to the newer version that’s better. Thoughts?

    As always C&C are more than welcome

    it's giving me a headache though! i think i'm probably better-off concentrating on the stuff outside the map itself so i can make a 'mock-up' or prototype version to which i can add labels as i need them
