If anybody wants, I can upload the original image (before I scaled and painted all over it ), but the original is 11mb+ and in jpg format. I can also upload the scaled tga which is 6mb+.

Beautiful map. Makes me wonder why no one tried to do this earlier.

It works just fine - in my Dom3! The only thing you'll have to do is to change the default size of Dom icons (castles, flags, etc) a little bigger. There's a map command for that.

@Wish:
Oops. Thanks Wish, I kind of rushed it out without testing it. The anchor on the south side of the island works, but the northern anchor at prov#34 should neighbor with prov#48. I will attach an updated map file to this reply. Hopefully I didn't miss as much as I suspect that I have. If you find any other missed neighbors or mislabeled terrain and such, let me know.

@Endoperez:
I could be wrong, but I don't think many people knew about the "entire map" screen capture feature that was incorporated into the Age games. I had stumbled on it in an Age of Kings forum a long time ago and only recently did a search on google to find the key combination again. Hopefully we will see some more of them from people who are really good with the editor. All I have ever done is tinker with it.

What is that key combination and does it work with the AoW 1 editor as well?

The combination is CNTRL+ALT+F12 and it works in Age of Kings and Age of Mythology for sure. Age of Wonders was done by a different developer and I am pretty sure that there is no full map screen capture utility built into it. I wish that there was. AoW2 was the first one that I tried to create Dom2 maps with.

Already playing around with another one. I am using an Anatolia random map for a start and just modifying it.
