Default New Large Map Latus

This is a map made using mostly photoshop. It has been play tested somewhat, but it's not perfect. Unfortunately I am very lazy and I am easily distracted by other projects so it will likely never be at the level I want it. Because of the shear size I have had to split it up into different archives in order place it here on the forums and not have to go through megaupload or rapidshare. Comments are appreciated and I will try to fix things a little as they are reported.

Here is a lovely preview

All I can say is wow. This is one of the most original maps that I have seen graphically and conceptually. It is obvious that you have invested a lot of thought and creativity in this project. I look forward to exploring the world of Latus.

Again... ...wow...

Alderanas,
If you are a windows user, you can download a trial version of WinRAR from here:
http://www.rarlab.com/

(It used to be shareware with a nag screen after the trial was over. Not sure if that is still the case in newer versions or not.)

You could also try 7z, it can open all common compression files, has awesome compression if you use its own format, and if someone decided to post a .7z file because they are smallest, you'll still be able to open those

636 provinces.

Hmm. When you download the rars you might need to rename the second one so it has the same name as the first one, only with .part2.rar instead of .part1.rar

I know I did.

Very cool map. Far too big for me but I'm sure some people here will complain it's too small :]

Wow, that is an extremely lovely, detailed, and interesting map!

Looks far more impressive when loaded into the game than in the numbnail, too. Very interesting design of the lands and everything I've seen so far.

I started a game as Lanka and appropriately started in the realm of blood. Looks like many of the regions there have no independent armies. I'm not sure if that's intentional or not.
