    I require a good map-making program. It needs to be free, easy to use, and provide results that don't look like complete shit. For some reason, I haven't managed to find any.

    Can you help me?

    I played around a LOT with the starting settings until I got something half-decent, and then added some extra features (mainly the two mountain ranges on the main continent) manually.

    That way it's almost tectonically plausible, as well as giving the culture a good reason why engineering in the broadest sense (mining, digging, road- and bridge-building) is seen as an honourable profession.

    It's a bit busy, and I'm not sure about all the symbols (I'm thinking a variety of cultures, plus the eagles are Imperial outposts?).

    On the other hand, it looks cartographically sound (no rivers flowing uphill, and yes, I'm talking to you, Professor Tolkien), and I like that each culture has its own distinctive sounding names. I can see Germanic, Latinate, possibly slightly Indic, Elvish, Slavic and Norse in there.

    You know you can just edit the sea level afterwards, right? "Rougher" more or less randomises your elevations, so there's a chance of sinking, but if you do, just dial the water down by a few tens of meters, and it's all still there.

    I tried to make it as comprehensive as possible and I left the legend out because it's just for my group. The aquilas are provincial capitals of the human-controlled empire, and the pillars are of course their towns. Dwarves are hammer/axe/sickle (communistic archaeology buffs), Eladrin are towers (remnants of an ancient magocratic empire that was shattered by civil war), Goliaths/Shifters are masks (Viking/Inuit fusion, hunting culture and ancestor worship), Drow are spiders (Chinese/Indian fusion with caste system and highly specific social rules), Tieflings are pentagrams (Germanic/Old English fiefdoms). Entire continent and all cities are under Imperial rule, and of course roads are very important. Dragonborn live on another continent, have an Islamic empire going, see map.

    I had planned on going back and making it more detailed or even doing zoomed-in ones for each province, but it was taking too damn long to load up as it was and I can't afford a new machine or a processor upgrade.

    for 'alternate' map generators:

    the Heroes of might and magic 3 random map generator. make one for a skirmish game, save, open in map editor, trace.

    - paths and roads, 'ressource stations' if you wanna have a game with that kind of stuff...

    - 'ressource stations'... if you dont want that kinda stuff, plus random shit monsters and such

    still, it makes for some nice maps. you can basically transcribe a route for D&D describtions. works well for that if you're a little creative

    "as you travel from the small hamlet, you come by the local mill and in the distance you can see tiny black dots in the sky around the [random name] cliffs, they must have a roost up there"

    alternatly, for larger world map generation, fireup Dorf Fortress and export a picture of the map. easy peacy.

    Don't also forget that rivers don't flow from one ocean to another.

    Things you need to know for a local map:

    - gravity

    Things you need to know for a global map:

    - tectonics is nice
    - climate patterns; deserts on the west coast, the placement of winds and ocean currents, etc. fiddly and annoying and impossible to get right, but hey.
    - cartographic projection. if the two first points are for making a nice world, this is so that you have a nice map, plus a world that actually fits on a globe right.

    Things no one here is going to tell you you need, but would be really, really nice to have because fuck, there is not enough of it:

    - linguistics, and some conlanging skills. For a map, all you need to do is make up naming languages (basically, just names and words and maybe some basic morphology and a smattering of noun-phrase syntax)
    - at the very least, some knowledge of linguistic phonetics.
    A basic tutorial:
    Also came out recently in a long book form:
    Around ten bucks on Amazon. I bought it (cuz, hey, what are friends for, if not buying your book?), and it's a fairly standard Linguistics 101 book with conlanging bits. If you can't get your hands on it, just get some basic linguistics book, anything with "Introduction to linguistics" in the title. Most will explain phonetics, IPA, and basic linguistic typology, at least enough to give you some taste of the linguistic diversity out there.

    No it's not. I understand your concern, though, and have left you a message in the place where that map was not stolen from. Not going to link to it though, because I happen to like my anal virginity.

    Anyhow, a Polish/Hungarian conlang with an English accent? Well, first off, Polish and Hungarian don't really have very similar phonologies (in a European sense). Hungarian has long vowels and long consonants, Polish doesn't iirc... Polish is Indo-European, Hungarian is Uralic, but I guess there's been some loaning of phones happening in central Europe. They have similar-looking orthographies, sure, but <sz> and <s> behave in the exact opposite matter in the other languages: the backwards way in Hungarian, where <sz> is pronounced like an ordinary coronal /s/, and <s> is pronounced like a post-alveolar /S/. I don't actually have any idea what an English accent in these languages would sound like, either.

    My suggestion is to just read up on the phonologies of these two languages on Wikipedia, and use that as inspiration.

My question is more do you think it's feasible to get an entire naming scheme for cities/people out of this or will it just end up looking and sounding ridiculous?

    If you want to make a semi-realistic world, you can build it first with a program called world machine. This lets you create a heightmap with a lot of tools, and it's easy to use, change and undo.

    Then you just set the colors to whatever you want (like woodlands), and have a look at it in 3D. If you're satisfied, and if you're lazy, then copy paste a top view into photoshop and edit from there. Or use photoshop to create your own version using the worldmachine map as a guideline.

    I never made an actual, finished map, though. But for quick generation, it's perfect, and it gives a pretty good result.

    Ace Combat has some truly excellent briefing UIs. Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njyJOLMA5Ws
    Any tips on that kind of vector-style rendering? Or on converting existing maps into vector lineart for manipulation?

    At least rename your picture before posting it if you don't want us to find your SUPER SECRET DeviantArt account.

    Welp, if your the guy who that DeviantArt account belongs to, you should tell us more about the story you're working on - it's pretty cool looking.


    I don't know, man, but I'm not about to check.

    Did you mean this?

    At least for me, it's really hard to see this as anything but an ordinary world map, because I'm so used to it.
    >> Anonymous 05/08/10(Sat)16:23 No.9692782
    Is there such a map in existence that has the oceans as land and the land the same? I want a map that shows the entire world with no oceans.

    All desert and wasteland, probably.

    I downloaded this on Piratebay and when I open up the extracted file. All of the folders are blue. Why is this?

    Wow. That map is really, really impressive. I wanted to run an Indo/Thai/Chinese 3.5 campaign using just Tome of Battle and Tome of Magic classes and that is absolutely perfect.

    Thanks a lot for posting that, Anon.

    You could still see the ocean. I want a map that shows the geography of the land and the land underneath the water. I don't care if it's a desert wasteland.

    Well, there's no ocean on that map. I could find you the same map in levels of grey, but that would still be the same map.

    I'm looking for a map that shows the geography, but removes the ocean to reveal it's geography as well so the entire world is just land.
