    This is just a little teaser for some maps I will be doing. Don't expect the maps any time soon because the tool I am using to render them is home brewed. It also takes a long long time to render a map the size of trammel in high quality the way I am. It is possible for this tool to render the map as an exact full scale copy of the map as it is in game. I am scaling it down from that size though.

    The quality of this example was lowered during rendering purposely. I can increase the quality to 5x what you see in this example.

    I give you Serpent's Hold:

    That looks great, is it going to be a program like UOAM or work with KR's radar map?

    No I have nothing like that planned right now. But it will be very very high detailed maps of the different facets.

    I also have plans to take the finished maps and create an interactive flash that allows you to move around within the world.

    One of the goals is to show the dungeon entrances but allow users to click the entrance to go to the location on the map it leads to. This way you can actually move through a dungeon to see where each entrance/exit leads to.

    I will have plenty of different options in the flash and hopefully it will be useful when it's done.

    Now THAT is NICE. Will you be making it take properly into account the Tram/Fel differences?

    Also.. if you decide to add labels, please provide a version of ech of the maps without them as well.. i'd love to do them in Britannian Runic.

    Oh yes there will be differences taken into account in a few ways. I also plan to do versions that do not include labels as well as versions including labels in both runic and english.

    For the differences I plan to do both old and new haven. I also want to include rift moonglow and a few other past areas only accessible for a short time. I will also do both destroyed and pre invasion magincia in this.
