It seems the SQL database had grown larger than our hosting company allows.
I've cleaned out all of the unnecessary log data to get it down to an

Based on the one seen in Lemuria. Will add the rivers later. Then I'll color the lands. Also twice makes a better place to talk about the map and GS2's geography than the story thread.

Some elements don't appear on the map seen in Lemuria. They are respectively Izumo and Apojii. All the others can be seen.

Ps: please don't mind the construction lines.

This is some great stuff.

I made an ancient Weyard map a year ago with Paint.net, but I have a feeling yours is going to be better.

Haha, paint don't compare to my pencil power !!!

Also I looked at it already. Good stuff to help me put the main places at the right location. I also used it to help with the shape of the crescent-like huge continent.

Small update to the map. Did do the rivers first finally. Red dots are the important places for alchemy (lighthouses, Aleph, Air's rock, aqua rock and Gaia rock). Haven't placed magma yet because I'm not really sure where to place it for now. Pink dots are the towns/cities I know where they are precisely. It can be hard to distinguish pink from red though >< I'll replace the pink by purple later.

Deserts are placed, karagol too, some mountain ranges when I knew where to place them.

Looks like a pretty good start! Did Vale exist pre-alchemy seal, or is that a different town? Just curious.

I thought it exists. It's one of the few places where there are adepts left, so I think yes. (Very few other adepts in other cities. None in Tolbi for exemple. Nor xian, Kolima, Bilibin or any other town like that. Comparatively, it must be old. (and sol sanctum was built out of nowhere too, so people lived there before.)

Zoom on Lemuria, Apojii and Izumo. These regions count a lot of relatively flat lands. No real mountain ranges, just a few heights following the volcanic lines in the underground.

The city of Lemuria, which gave it's name to the island, is the one northeast. It is separated in two: the old town and the new town. The new one is on the east side of the bay, the old town on the west. Boats entered the bay and took the great stairs, or entered the great canal south and got into the underground port. The entrance into the cave were always done by a Lemurian Captain, and they always kept the path a secret. This is the only reason that Kept Lemuria from being attacked directly and dragged into a war. The stairs are too hard to climb for a whole army, climbing the cliffs wasn't an option, and the Port was the only way for warships to enter. But, pirates' assaults on their ships happened regularly.

Izumo has always been an isolated place. They are allied with Ankhol, and it is said that their warriors were some of the strongests. It is ruled by an emperor, who reigns on Izumo and apojii.

Apojii is a Province of Izumo. It consists mainly of Fishermans and artisans of the wood.

Worked a bit on giving a less "empty" look to the map. (Mainly adding blue everywhere, lol.) give colors to a few more little islands. Added the "deep see cliff" to the big continent (see if you find it) and the "coral circle" (that one's easy to find).
I added those with an idea of maybe having:
- deep see cliff: an optional boss to help the port town that will be there.
- coral circle: you'd have two visits of aqua rock. First gives "Parch", second gives "dive" (no relation with my pseudo). "Dive" is exactly what it means: you can dive in certain spots. Just thought it was a good idea and added them.
They're both just ideas, but I still added them.

Thx luna ^^ the only post since saturday ><

Ok, on another note: all the north part is done. As you can probable guess, Mt Aleph is in the morts part of the world. Yup. It's the same in the GS and GS:TLA
Also added the mountains in the south part of the crescent. Will color the forests/plains later.

Also: in the north, light green is used for thundra. There's practically no grass there. I just didn't want to let the north blank >< and didn't have other colors. Sorry.

Another update !

The South Tip of the continent is done. The oceans have their definitive shapes and sizes.
I tried to add filters on the pic, because, well, it's hard to differentiate the light-blue from the darker one.
The worst part comes now: still haven't figured out where precisely I'll put the mountains. Will put them in place tomorrow or Saturday.

Not much to say, here you go !

Fox: Yes. The best tool is a hex editor. Well.... VBA, VBA-SDL-H, no$gba Debugger, GBATEK, and my documentation.... to use these to learn how the code/data works. Best method because it maximizes your editing ability... and then there is my program gsmagic that I was working on. Still in its early stages, though. (Even after year(s).)

Atrius: @Fox, I tried, but for some reason Mario Golf won't boot, and Mario Tennis crashes when you patch out the text compression, and I'm not sure why...  The normal text loading functions in them are basically the same as the ones in the Golden Sun games.
