Nice catch BW! I've made the correction for Orchan map #s 49, 54 in my original post.

Thanks for your map suggestions for map names Posted Image - we'll have the community chime in on them before acceptance as we did with Dwarven Map names.

Map 35 is an Orchan map (see Alroth) as are 49 and 54! Maki has committed to two Orchan maps (36, 37)  which means the two of you should be on the same page so that the design/visual approach to Orchan Lands are visually consistent. So stick with Elven maps for now until you two connect.

Map #47 is a Draegoni map which I've removed from your list for the same reasons I've made regarding Orchan Lands!

Z

Update!

Please welcome Cardome and Codux to the OL Map Makers team!! Gus/Codux have been working with the Map Editor to assist with designing remaining Outline (Blank/empty) Maps which make the Alroth continent. The plan is to build Alroth with these Outlines (including DLs) prior to any further detailed, content design effort on each of these individual outline maps.

Current Status-

butler: Original Map Maker
Cardome will be building remaining Human Outline Maps!
12 Human maps (#s); 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 28, 29, 30, 32.

battlewizard: Original Map Maker - BW seems to have gone awol Posted Image
Codux is currently working on ALL Elven Outline maps!!
13 Elven maps (#s); 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44.

Zian: Original Map Maker
Codux will build the remaining Dwarven Outline Maps for #6, 31, 33!!
12 Dwarven maps (#s); 2, 4, 12, 13, 14, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 57. (released to Main)
Map 57 (Raven's Island) will undergo a significant redesign to convert this Gnome map to a Dwarven Map including a new Insides. T
03 Dwarven maps (#s); 6, 31, 33

Orchan maps need work regarding borders/outlines in order to complete these initial maps. Once Human/Elven/Dwarven are complete, Cardome/Codux will help with remaining Orchan maps TBD!!!

Alroth (the continent) Update!

Since my last update, the map team has completed 40 NEW Outline maps used as placeholders for building the Alroth continent.

Each outline map contains basic content such as the shape of the land mass, locations of water, mountains and borders with other maps. In addition, a map.def file containing basic map parameters including world x/y coordinates positioning each map within the world.

The significant benefit of these maps is they can be passed over to a map designer to begin adding content (buildings, roads, bridges, etc) saving a lot of prep time.

Many thanks to Codux and Cardome for their contributions (and time) supporting the above effort!

Next step is to upload the above maps and begin the work of matching them up with the Dwarven Lands which are already in place (see link below).

https://www.dropbox....tinent.png?dl=0

This work will require an iterative process allowing for fine adjustments to both map world coords and features within each map (if needed).

Regards
Z

Alroth (the continent) Update!

The Map Team has completed 48 new 'Outline' Maps required for building the continent. This brings the total number of 'outside' maps for Alroth to 60 which includes the 12 existing Dwarven Maps. (Note: the 60 maps do not include; cave, underground and inside maps.)

Link below shows the Alroth continent built with the maps as described above;

I've updated the previously posted image of Alroth that includes OL Races and their associated (numbered) map locations. Each numbered map has available to the map maker an existing 'outline' map .elm.gz file and a .def file.

I currently have no further plans with the continental map at this time.

Enjoy!
