New maps

As I’ve been working my way through EoK, I’ve added quite a few labels. In addition, I saw the hunter information that was on EQResource and added that as well (after standardizing colors & labeling). If you are in EoK, I think you’ll be happy with these changes.

For those on progression servers, I’ve redone a few older maps. Veksar, Shadow Haven (massive cleanup & NPC labeling), Fungus Grove, Netherbian Lair, Greig’s End, and Umbral Plains.

Empires of Kunark maps

Throughout beta, I did quite a bit of mapping.  Final versions of my maps are attached.  Lceanium, Scorched Woods, Frontier Mountains, Korshaext, and Chardoktwo are originals. Drogab is a slightly modified version of a map I cleaned up years ago. For Korshaint, I added Goodurden’s with my standardized labels.

Throughout the beta, I added quite a few hunter mobs to my maps with their locations. Final release may vary…

Empires of Kunark Maps

New version of world map

Made some minor modifications to the world map.  While re-visiting Solusek B, I discovered that the zone to Qeynos Catacombs was changed to Solusek A.  While logical, it was a great shortcut prior to Plane of Knowledge.

Minor layout changes to Underfoot, Health clicky, and a few other tweaks where lines mismatched slightly.

How big is EverQuest?

I started wondering how big EverQuest was in terms of square miles.  After searching around the internet to no avail, I wrote a small program to give the coordinate differences, calculate square feet, and then total the miles.

Grand total: 294.1 Square Miles*

*Note: Should be a bit higher, but missing a few instanced zones that I’m going to find and map.

Top 5 biggest zones (numbers are in square miles):
1. Iceclad Ocean: 20.1
2. Timorous Deep: 11.0
3. Ocean of Tears: 7.0
4. Eastern Wastes: 5.3
5. Zxeishi’s Awakening: 5.3

Perhaps after the next expansion, EverQuest will have over 300 square miles of territory.

New set of map files

Posted a full set of the map files that I use.  518 main zones, 1500+ files.

In this collection, I included maps I made:
Plane of Health
Plane of Life
Plane of Decay
Plane of Hate
Tower of Rot
Castle Mistmoore
The Hole
Tons of cleanup on GoD maps.
Hundreds of hunter locations through Veil of Alaris.

Best of all, these are all color coded to the same scheme all the other files use.


The Broken Mirror

The EverQuest World Map has been updated to reflect the zones in The Broken Mirror expansion.  Fear & Hate instances are off the Plane of Tranquility.

You can reach the Plane of Health by clicking on the crystal on the eastern side of the island.

Also included in this update is the connection from the Plane of War (mine area) to Drunder.

I’m doing a final clean-up of the zone files and will be loading them soon.
