Just so that I am tracking the completion level here, we just need a recreations of Beluterra and the South Island, correct? Which would be priority? BT I assume? I am on spring break right now, and while I am not committing to anything, I am thinking about it.

We've got Dwilight and the South Island (that was the first one I did, so that I could get the new South Island started), and still need everything else, I believe.

The Colonies and EC were done by me, unless something has changed? I still have both of their finished files on my computer if they were lost or something...

...Hm. Now that you mention it, I do remember something like that. I probably even still have them.

In that case, it's just BT that we need the AoW map file for.

Ok. If you can't find them just let me know and I can send them to you again.

I will think about BT. It was fun to do the maps, just really time consuming.

Just so we're clear it is only BT that needs to be done?

Dwlight: Done
East Continent: Done
Colonies: Done
South Island: Done
Beluaterra: In the works
Atamara/Old Beluaterra: not done
Far East Island: not done

Obviously those last two are of less importance given their continents do not exist.

Speaking of, I just finished doing a remake of the old Beluaterra/Atamara map, and a screenshot-patchwork copy, which can then be easily fixed up to look like the current Beluaterra. It's just over 2500x2600 pixels, the original size of the Atamara map, so it can be scaled to that depending on how you want it lined up.

Let me know if anyone wants the scenario file. Current edition of the jpg is up on the wiki, will try to compress it more without losing quality. Any tips would be helpful, I'm using GIMP.

...which is all very well, but IIRC, we have all the original map images for AT/BT. What we need for them is the Age of Wonders map files.

I have that, that's what I used to make the map image.

I made it from scratch.

Ah, excellent!

The wording of your previous post had me confused.

I sent the map to you privately, but I'll share it here too in case anyone wanted it for any reason.

So that is all the maps completed then? This volunteer task can be closed? Or is there additional things required?
