    Default Creating a World - Gig's Map Collection

    Basic Maps for the budding modder

    - Feel free to use these maps in your mod, a little credit (map based on...) would be nice should you do so.
    - The installer is build on my "Bare Geomod" installation
    - Provided are radarmaps, mapFE and a splash screen
    - map_climates, map_ground_types are basic - small number of regions - three factions (england, france, slaves)
    - maps are developed using information provided by my "Working with the Demis online Mapper" tutorial

    Click on the map pictures to begin the download of the installer. Dimensions on the picture are the map_heights dimensions

    Note: to work on the maps with Geomod you need to run the mod at least once all the way to the campaign start to generate the required string.bin files. Those are not provided to keep the installer size small.

    great afford gigantus how about a base europe map which all the europe mods, which are a lot, can use, that would make starting a medieval mod much easier

    the crusades map look very good. may i suggest that you make the nile shipable, on such a huge map the small rivers look kinda stupid...

    Yes, I know that Ishtar is spelled wrong

    They are really good. Thanks.
    Maybe you will make a bigger Asia map, in near future (like Broken Crescent map), will you?

    Added a map that pretty much covers the area ruled by Alexander the Great. That's why I called it "Alexandros".

    Added my impression what the general layout for Shogun2 might be like.

    Hey gigantus, I second the desire for a North America. Something like this:Attachment 93568

    Guess I would stop at the Hudson bay. Let's see if the mood gets me once I have some time.
