Hi there,

here is the first real job in the graphics area I can offer.

I started to make a world map (download .psd here, size 10MB) long ago, but have currently no time, to finish it myself.

It really is only a draft for the shape of the coastline and will need quite a bit of work, until it is presentable.

If you feel like giving it a try, you can use my draft or make your complete own suggestion. There are only a view requirements:

[list=1]
  • In a similar style of the map, used for the startscreen
  • Land of aisen located in the south-middle
  • Land of undead located in the north-east
  • Land of the demons located in the north-west(as opposed to the draft. A minor and easily fixable mistake.)
  • land of the elementarists located in the south west (desert) (optional, because it will have no part in the game )
  • Resolution: 1024 x 1024


It will be used for the teleporter window of the gateways.

That's it, you can download the map texture of the startscreenmap here (40MB!)

Please contact me or Kalimgard, if you have any questions concerning the map

best wishes

Oh I am so tempted to bite, but I won't. As much as I love making maps, I don't have time. IIRC Kestenvarn posted some really good tips on map making on the Wesnoth forums though, let's see if I can dig up the thread.

You could have created it with MS Paint for all I care, it looks just awesome. Great job on this.:)

What is the current state of this task ?
I'd like to put it into 0.5.1 release, but that means that we should upload and integrate it into the game as fast as possible. In my opinion, last version is definitely good enough to use it, if the final map is not complete yet.
Can you please provide a *.png file of the last version ?

Looks great. :D But I have to say that I thought the roads in the lower half of the map were rivers at first, and it took me a moment to figure it out. Perhaps less blue and more brown in the color of the roads would make them easier to identify.

Or maybe this is my unperceptive self?
