    Really? I mean, I get it periodically (especially in Ardoris), but nothing I'd consider remotely game-breaking or very bothersome even.

    There is a reason for this bump. It is horrid forum etiquette but the OP needs adjustment.

    I don't mind the bump, understanding the reasoning.

    Might you now get rid of Column 9, moving the compass star and sliding the title and Novia map to the west?

    Will try to do over the next few days.
    Can anyone come up with better icons?
    I tried scissors to denote the tailor, but they don't work at low/reduced resolution.
    I want every bit of icon art to be from within the game.

    Ask him if he wants a job. ;)

    One request, the writing is a little difficult to see. I have a large monitor and much of the writing is still very fuzzy to me. It would be great if we could get maps like this in-game! But I'd love to have a way to magnify sections of the map for my old bad eyes. :)

    Birko,

    I'm a fan. Well done sir! Would definitely love to see large-scale, beautiful, zoom-able maps like this in-game.

    Once incorporated into the game it should:
    1. Start off with "fog of war" enabled and expose topography as you physically explore.
    2. Specific details (i.e. Armorer, tailor, tavern, etc.) should also be revealed on the map only when a player talks to the person behind the counter and discovers their job through interaction.
    Thanks for taking the initiative on this!

    I like this idea. Almost reminds me of the mapping system used in Ultima Underworld 1 where areas are revealed during exploration.

    This is really awesome I would love to see one for each town! As far as the actual in-game map I could see this being more useful. Currently my biggest problem is I wish the maps could be resized (not just zoomable) so be smaller or bigger also wish it could be pushed all the way into the corner. Possibly even a circular mini-map option and it just uses all the maps you've collected instead of having to manually open them all. Really looking forward to the full blown Atlas of Novia pledge reward item!

    Hey Birko... You just got 'hired' by the man himself. Don't let him down. No pressure or nothin'. ;)

    Birko this is amazing. If you are interested I would like to discuss some ideas with you around helping to create these city maps. Pm me if so

    Incredible!

    And, on a side note, also a thank you from me for using letters I can read.

    I know that a lot of time went into the design of the runic script, and for many it is important to have runic script, but I am just lacking the time to learn another alphabet just for playing a game. So, for me personally it is much easier to have the common a-zA-Z letter set.
