World map threads. Just showing off some of your favorite world maps.

Also replaying it after 30 years when I was 5 I am just realizing how much DQ3 is the real world. I got the towns where based on real world places but never seen a picture of the world map until playing the SNES version and seeing the map fully.

You do know Morrowind is the 3rd game in the series right? Hell in the first game to explore you can explore all of Tamriel.

Oh yeah? I was aware Morrowind is the third installment. All of tamriel huh? I bet it was rudimentary at the time though...

Maybe it's me being an idiot but what is with Gaia's Navel being in a few Japanese games? Dragon Quest, Mana, Chrono Cross. Just seem weird since I don't remember Greek Myth having anything to do with her navel. Even weirder they are always in the corner of the world not the center.

Here's a fun map-related fact. The top portion of Vanilla Dome is apparently called the Vanilla Tableland.

Not sure what it's called either. I've been playing yoshis island lately on the SNES mini. Very fun game, I'll have to look up that map.

Confiest archipelago in the world.
>>

Maybe. Just feels like since most JRPG loves referencing lots of different western mythology that Gaia's Navel was based on something but I never could find out what.
>>
>>5725208
IIRC, Arena and Daggerfall had infinite world maps. You couldn't actually walk from place to place, you would have had to fast travel to your destination, and the dungeon and city tilesets were all the same.

the second island in 3d VC was horribly designed. half of it was empty space, and the skyscraper area felt completely empty and lifeless.
all in all the first island had decent design, but beach was way too large.

personally I just wish Anywhere City would get a 3d revisit.

Please put names for maps that don't have any, there are several I don't know but I like to check out but I have no idea what game or world it is.
If anyone could name a bunch unamed maps from here, that would be great. Thanks, this is a cool thread.

They were far from rudimentary, especially for the time, they just had many bugs but where otherwise astonishing games, specially Daggerfall that was real 3D with sprites before Terminator and Quake.

I always hate it when people compare LoD to Final Fantasy, apart of 1 or 2 things they are nothing alike. Anyway the 2nd and 3rd world map themes are truly comfy

What makes a map better or worse? Since you visited every place in a linear fashion without that much information on what places you can go, it seems that the differences, other than the aesthetics ones, doesn't exist.
