Blank Outline Earth World Template

Submitted by Emperor_Jackal
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
Generated from http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/19/BlankMap-World-large-noborders.png/800px-BlankMap-World-large-noborders.png using DarkLord's Terrain 1.0.

I have done nothing more than create the heightmap from the image. It is a largely featureless map, with little variation of tile heights, no variation of tiles or distribution of doodads. The use of this terrain is for the outline. Because of the relatively small dimensions (I wanted this to be fully functional on the normal world editor), the tiles merge a bit together (for example Spain has a land border with Morocco, as does Yemen and Djibouti). Some things are also a bit small, particularly in Europe, but it is all proportional. It may look a bit weird in the minimap image on this upload but that is because of the typical blurry rendering done to generate minimaps.

If you don't like a part of this world map, feel free to edit it if you plan to use it as a template. I don't care particularly for any credit either, because quite frankly more credit is deserved for DarkLord's tool, a sorely underused tool by the mapping community. Feel free to use this template however you wish.

    hmm if something like this wasn't made before this can be quite useful for some RISK WoW type map
    guess I'll just give 4/5.

    You should try to create a 400x400-ish version.

    Some of the countries are now extremely small and its pretty much impossible to add any units or whatever on them.

    I agree with the above comment. 420x420 is almost a requirement on this kind of map, and just so you know, theese maps CAN be opened with the normal editor, but their porportions cannot be changed in it.
    Also, i think you should add some tile variation to it, just to add more visual attractiveness to the minimap. Seeing how you only generated this from an image, that can hardly be too much to ask. Use Ashenvale Lumpy Grass and Ashenvale Grassy dirt for the majority, and then use some icecrown snow and maybe loarderon fall dirt for the desert.


    EDIT: @FreeWayLemon: It is done using a program that can be found in the tools section on this site. You simply make a .tga image in black and white that has the same proportions as the size want +1 (ex. 257x257), and then you convert it to a certain heightmap format that can be imported into the map MPQ. There are instructions in the comments.

    Ok I've uploaded an 480x288 version (http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/maps-564/outline-earth-template-480x288-189663/). I'll keep this version up because it is fully functional with the normal editor. As you said, you can open with the normal editor, but you cannot change the map description or loading screen options because the editor will scream about a too large map.

    I've also kept the tiles a little basic so that people can do what they like with them. As it stands they can change the base tileset with ease, which would be a bit more porblematic if I added or removed a tile type.

    You could also post screenshots showcasing the terrain.

    Cool! I was trying to make something like this in the past, but i failed miserably :(
    I think it deserves a 5/5 since it is ALMOST flawless :D
