Well if you haven't seen, here is a new, much larger map of Felarya :

http://karbo.deviantart.com/art/Large-map-of-Felarya-144588075 ^_^

Please don't hesitate to give me your feedback on it, if you think something has been forgotten, if you have a question, if you don't like a name etc. Smile
Like said in DA, I made it in a way that allow easy and quick modifications.

Also the big change compared to the old map is Anko bridge. I inverted it because it was wrong in the beginning ... I'ts amazing but I just never realized it ! Shocked
Lastly, that succubus near Ascarlin mountains is of course Iridan ! ( even if I bet most people never ever heard of her XD )

Iridan is so little used, even Karbo forgets about her half the time.

Excellent map Karbo. Very helpful, and enlightening. We spent like an hour on Vent discussing it. I really really like how many of my ideas showed up in the map. Yay Rosic Nekos! Now we just need to fill in those blank spaces, or at the least name the landmarks we can see. ^^

Well I am happy to have it at least, even if some of the places were a bit different than I thought they would be and I don't know a fraction of the new places. However I use the map of RP purposes, and I am happy to have it. But man this is going to expand the location wiki allot.

It'll be very useful in the future, now that it's bigger and a bit more detailed. Great for new settings and crazy stories. Very Happy

Woo awesome map... but one suggestion... it needs like one of those things at the bottom that tells you what length corresponds to what distance, because I always thought Ur-Sagol and Negav were really far, but on the map they seem really close... or maybe that distance is actually 100 miles Razz

Let us know... because then I'll know how long it take to get from one place to another Very Happy

Oh and now that I know that an area is uncharted... time to carve out a portion for myself and my beliefs lol! (maybe a military base, an underground base and a city all combined Wink - where all can live in harmony without worry of death (my objective - Negav but with prey AND preds - I know the chances are slim... *sigh*... I will get eaten many more times before I get anywhere close... but the goal is worth it!!! )

Excellent work!

this will definitely play a huge role an any new story ideas... if not, they are not worth reading. (Just a joke btw)

Im not a big public story writer, seeing as whatever i write is never seen by many people except for alittle editing support sometimes... but im hoping I'll get the time to post a good story on the forums some day.

O_O is that a naga in the bottom corner? LOL

Then do it in Kilometers or do the Kilometers and then contact some one like me or the others who can help you with conversions.

As I said on DA, an excellent map. Makes Felarya seem so much bigger than I ever imagined.

actually talking to Silent Eric he brought up a good point, DON'T put a scale on it, maby travel time but thats it. It leaves the spacial distortion and dimensional instability feel to the whole place as something you have to take into consideration.

Yeah, that's what people really need. The precise distance from Ur-Sagol to Negav might be nice, but doesn't really give a reader of a story much. The time it takes to travel there in days helps put it in perspective.

actually, in the distant future Mara and Bael end up getting engaged, but Mara wants her family to see the wedding so she refuses to get married before they rescue them. I plan to have a story about their adventure into deeper felarya, and...stuff happens. no spoilers, you'll have to bite your nails until that day comes Very Happy

I approve of this map. Very Happy

You said "I couldn't go as far as I wanted ( to the Ivokan Savana in the far west ), because the file would just have been too big to work properly on." Can I safely assume that is because while the file would load, it was just too sluggish to do any work on? I once made maps for Krishna3ca's Vgame (see here, about halfway down the page), and I ran into that problem as his world got bigger, not helped in the least by the fact that my computer was old. I solved that problem by building the maps as a smaller series of files, then “flattening” them and connecting them together only at the very end. You might be able to do something similar.

For example, take the map that you have now, and copy a 100 pixel slice from the western edge of the map.
Take that slice and put it into a new file as the eastern edge. This gives you a substantial reference point to work off of, so you avoid problems at the seam.
Once you have completed working on the “East” map, chop off 100 pixels of the eastern edge (getting rid of the 100 pixel slice that is duplicated between the two maps), and save it to a flat loss-less file format like PNG. Do the same with the “West” map.

Now you have two images that just need to be placed side by side. Furthermore they are “flat”, having only a single layer, and so should take up less memory. Even if combining them is sluggish, it shouldn't be too bad because all you have to do is line them up side by side, then save to a master copy, then export the image to some loss-less file format at full size.

Once you have this “super file” you can use a variety of programs (including your image editor) to re-size it to something of a more sensible resolution, and possibly change its format to decrease file size.

I'm also taking the occasion to change a bit things in the wiki, naming some regions, and reorganizing the whole zone/sub zone tree to make things more clear hopefully Smile
