    Hey guys.

    I recently began working towards modding Fallout 2. One of the things I would like to mod is the world map.

    In MIB's megamod I could see that the map size is 56 tiles (7x8). I do know how to change the number of horizontal tiles in the map (no idea about diagonal lines, I do wonder how MIB changed that.), so I compiled a 10x8 1:1 ratio world map of the intended region to be used in the modded game.

    Anyway, my problem is that I don't know how to make the map feel more like Fallout, graphically.

    These are the links to the BMP map file

    https://ufile.io/1kdhp - a 1 to 1 ratio, 10x8 tiles. (1 BMP file)

    https://ufile.io/ou87f - a 2 to 1 ratio 10x8 tiles. (1 BMP file)

    Could someone help me with it, please? In the off chance that a mod will ever be published, I would of course credit you for the map. Thanks.

    Regards,

    Tzur Kanfer

    In all my years around here, the only one who could pull off a good worldmap was pixote.

    In any case, you should probably focus on everything else first, though. I know it's easy to lose yourself in graphics, because in worst case, it's the easiest things to do... while it really belongs to the things you should do last.

    I don't think so, but I've found an article (Russian, utilize G translate or something) providing some details.

    Thanks for replying.
    I did btw tried to use the Nevada map. Unfortunately, it's too small for me, but I did get some ideas of it:)
