Remastered map of Tyria

The past few days I've spent a lot of time creating what I would like to call a "remastered" version of Tyria's map. I've used all the original tiles from the DAT file and with a bit of magic I've managed to create a sharper and more vibrant map.


Feel free to use it any way you see fit, enjoy!

Eye of the North development map

Another day another map from the DAT file. This time I've pieced together the development map from the Far Shiverpeaks and Charr Homelands. Some notable things:
  • They used a very crude version for its background
  • Tiles are different from the ones used in the final version (Kralkatorrik for example)
  • Dungeons are clearly visible in the overworld

A couple of Guild Wars 1 maps I've made from the DAT file

Because I needed a lot of GW1 map related stuff for future projects (and most of the stuff on the wiki or google has marks on it or is way too compressed for my needs) I decided to stitch together some maps myself.
The first few I've made show the actual layout of the maps and what the game considers to be playable area (and can in theory be "unfogged"). It also shows the odd location of the EotN dungeon floors, the Underwold and the Fissure of Woe (they lobbed them south of Tyria and the Battle Isles)
The second map is an alpha map of the EotN Charr homelands I couldn't find anything about online. This one is still used as a placeholder backdrop for a couple of the dungeons.
