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.
I have an entire folder full of this stuff.
Hand-drawn ones are best.
>>5719373Post the civ world map of poland conquering USA.
Not sure but I'm almost certain Morrowind is retro now. Elder Scrolls in general always fascinated me though
>>5723232I seriously hope this world gets revisited in another Zelda title!
>>5721025Classic SNES maps are lit!
What timing! Just made this in Photoshop for the hell of it.
>>5724171Saved and nostalgiad'
>>5719373DQ III map is top tier RPG map.
>>5719373One of the first proper overworlds ever.
>>5724115You do know Morrowind is the 3rd game in the series right? Hell in the first game to explore you can explore all of Tamriel.
>>5725203Oh yeah? I was aware Morrowind is the third installment. All of tamriel huh? I bet it was rudimentary at the time though...
>>5725129Maybe 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.
>>5724119Here's a fun map-related fact. The top portion of Vanilla Dome is apparently called the Vanilla Tableland.Now if only there was a name for that island north of Donut Plains.
Based and Sheltempilled.
>>5725217Maybe someone on the same team likes the name?Funny to consider that Secret of Mana's navel is an Inny and Crosses is an outty
>>5725220Not 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.
>>5725220Yep, got a fanmade one. Surprisingly, this game is more expansive than I thought it'd be!
>>5725129Came to post this.Confiest archipelago in the world.
>>5725290Maybe. 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.
>>5725208IIRC, 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.
>>5725428Yeah I'd seen something about that on YouTube. Randomization, it was the dykg Todd Howard episode
>>5721025I hate this map.
Really wish 3D Vice City had a better mainland.
>>5726148the 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.

>>5724941What game is this? It looks cool.
Only the basedests of /vr/ will recognize tis. A true masterpiece.
>>5719373That is one unoptimized image.
>>5729062is that actually a physical prop, or just a painting designed to look like one?
>>5729068Not sure, but it looks like clay to me
>>5729062Now I see some of the inspiration for Skyloft in Skyward Sword. (Sorry, not retro I KNOW!) Still, this is interesting
>>5728023I don't like DQ3 map. Looks like the real world is hardly a positive trait.
>>5729198Check out Laputa, castle in the sky.
>>5729209That's too bad, considering it's the most enjoyable world map to explore the series has ever produced.
>>5729172You now have something to do next week. You're finally playing Chrono Trigger.
>>5725428You can in Daggerfall, I believe. Arena is the only one with infinite world maps.
Anyone remember the Zelda II map as an enlarged Zelda I map?
>>5727675Have this game, it's fun, if not a little primitive.
>>5727780>dying forces you to fight your way out of increasingly longer segments of the underworld>the final stage in the game literally starts with the same underworld area as the death event, except in reverseNow that's vidyakino
>>5729136It's 100% clay
>>5731143they just ripped off the dq3 map
>>5729702I don't like the shape of it. Other than that, it has the best exploration of any DQ
still have my UO map
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.
>>5725208They 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.
>>5731218Such a stark, lonely game. I love the somber noir aesthetic
Why is Secret of Mana's world map so slow?Like why the fuck is it drawn line by line when you open it fully?
>>5730407Technically not humanly possible.It's the same as walking through all of England because the map is that big.
>>5731184You mean Earth?
>>5733202You could do it, it'd just take a few days. You could definitely travel between settlements in the same county.
I'm always the one to post this one.
Mostly because of the music (PCE)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2orjNFZ8dQ&list=PLzFTGYa_evXghvFMdAxHMnraBcAcTf8u6&index=8&t=0s>>5733547I 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 comfyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bjRfnbM048https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT1ZgYbuNrY
>>5733713shit forgot image
Hunter was a truly groundbreaking game.
>>5719373I think it's funny to compare the "Town Portal" map vs
>>5737682the real map
>>5733553what the dick is going on up and to the left of cinnabar
>>5726287You might enjoy thishttps://www.moddb.com/mods/gta-iii-1999
>>5737740That's Viridian Forest, dummy.
>>5733553I was thinking of doing a firered rom hack and i can see that someone else has added peices i would've like to have seen.>route going to the ends of cycle road>cinnabar island actually looking like a volcano>an ocean area around billls house>an area above the power plant>moon squaregood to see
>>5738670Not that, above it.
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.
i hope someday we can have a good /v/ serb that isn't run by a fucking retard.
I don't have any to really offer, but are there any examples of genuinely awful (as in, largely agreed in the fanbase) game world maps?

>>5741096oh shit, i thought i was on /v/ my bad. morrowind is retro though and nothing you can say will convince me otherwise. i'll let a mod clean it up if they give a shit.
>>5739969That's Kanto Sea Route 29.
>>5742212Nice, except for the stupid watermark
