EQ Map Files

My collection of in-game maps are all contained in the zip file linked below.  These are best-of maps that I have put time into cleaning up, clarifying, and correcting.  Better yet, I’ve quested from original EQ to present and added enormous numbers of hunter/named/quests/merchants and etc.

>> Download Brewall’s Map Files

HOW TO INSTALL:

  1. Download the ZIP file of the maps
  2. Unzip the contents
  3. Locate where EverQuest installed on your computer; typically the “C:\users\public\Everquest” folder.
  4. Create a new folder called Brewall under Everquest’s map folder (e.g. C:\users\public\Everquest\maps\Brewall)
  5. Copy the unzipped map files to this folder.
  6. Start EQ and login with one of your characters
  7. Open your map window, in the upper left corner, you should see a dropdown box. Select Brewall.

Note: I do not recommend placing custom maps in the main maps folder.  The reason for this is that every time EverQuest starts, it overwrites 100 zones with default maps.  When this happens, any custom geometry is lost and labels will often duplicate.

2016-11-16 Updates:
Empires of Kunark maps added as a separate download (see above).  I’ll fold them into a single zip file after the initial frenzy of downloads wears off.

2016-10-01 Updates:
A massive update of all original EverQuest zones. I tried to look at the map as a newcomer to the game, reviewing them for clarity in navigation and labeling. I loaded each zone into a 3D modeling program (Sketchup), cleaned up geometry, and visited the zone to remap and label everything.  My final review was visiting the zone with my old EQAtlas binder printouts and adding additional information.  Some zones took 3-4 hours to redo, others, took 10+.

For starting players, I remapped the tutorial zones:

  • Mines of Gloomingdeep (tutoriala). New map
  • Mines of Gloomingdeep (tutorialb). New map. All NPC’s & labels

From there, I moved out to all starting cities; cleaning up navigation, geometry, stairs, doors, cultural forges, boats, and etc. Every NPC was reviewed and added if missing. Merchant information was also fixed. Both Freeport zone maps looked so bad, I redid them from scratch. Zones like Paineel, Erudin, Erudin Palace, Neriak Ak’Anon, Shar val, took an enormous amount of geometry cleanup and many had missing areas. East Cablis was also rough in cleaning up the tower & catacomb areas.

  • Paineel (paineel)
  • Erudin (erudnext)
  • Erudin Palace (erudnint)
  • Halas (halas)

For other EQ zones:

  • Cleaned up all zone geometry & line colors
  • Removed over 149,969 lines from the files with no loss of quality by using a custom-written program that removed lines to nowhere and merged tiny lines into larger adjacent lines
  • Added EQAtlas labels
  • Added Traps, clearly marked pit traps (e.g. North Qeynos rogue guild area)
