The drawn maps of Genesis

Post by Darken Rahl » 15 Jun 2020 08:58

Does anyone know what program has been used to draw the maps of
Genesis? I mean I don't believe someone has done them in paint or so.
Or is it enlarged maps from a client with a legend attached to it that
describes the different colours ?

Ah those. Some unknown player created them many years ago, but I haven't talked to anyone who knows who actually made them. I've always been curious who created them and have wanted to thank them for making life easier for me as a player, especially before the magic map started covering most areas.

I don't know how they were made, but it looks like some sort of automapper in a MUD client and then touched up with Photoshop or some other photo editing software. But that's just speculation on my part.

Made mine with chequered paper and a pencil back in the day.
Alas they got canned at some point, so printed the web ones.

Who did not?
I had may maps and quests in a notepad for years.
Alas, I think mine is gone too. :(
