Okay, we're getting closer to the end of the map (finally !)

Atteka done. Indra done. Only west Gondwan, hesperia and South Angara to do and we're finished.
Now for the bad news: I actually made a huge mistake on Indra. If you look closely and compare it to the GS2 map, you'll see immediately that the mountains are wrong. I tried to correct it but... Too late >< small mistakes were unavoidable, but I failed pretty badly on that point.
Still I'm satisfied with my work so far.

Last update this week-end I hope. Just one hour to add to my 10 others on this thing (10 hours of actual drawing and coloring, not just looking and comparing with the official map.)

I'll also make a Scan of the map for a much better quality for the last update.

Yo guys, Last update for the map. Everything is done and coloured. Total work time is around 10 hours of pure work (not counting the time spent lost in my toughts while drawing.

Thanks guys for the feedback.
Feel free to use the map as a model/basis for a real in-game one.

Here you go: scanned HD pic so you guys can zoom on everything.



Now for a small full description:

- Northeast island - Treasure Isle
- under treasure island stands Izumo, with it's well known Gaia Rock
- east of Izumo is the Illusive Forrest.
- Continuing to the east, Strago archipelago, and next to it the Coral Ring
- South from all that is the Apojii Archipelago, with the mysterious Aqua Rock
- Southeast stands the Frozen Island
- Lemuria doesn't need much explanations. You can see the old town and new town on the easter peaks, standing above the fjord. The legend says that you need a lemurian Captain to lead you to the port, because the path in the giant cave is extremely dangerous. On the southeast of lemuria you can see the Cave of Time.
- Continuing with the islands, but on the west side of the map this time. At the top you can see the small Snowy islet.
- the biggest island on the west side is Kalt. A cold microclimate there gave the island it's name.
- In the water you can see one of the many reefs on the map. but further south you can see the small island of Lahiho.
- the last island on the west side is the Old Forest. A place considered by many as sacred, and extremely dangerous.

Now for the big part ^^

- Norther red dot on the main continent is the Mars Lighthouse.
- Straight to the East stands the Mercury Lighthouse with the town of Imil.
- You can see a purple peak higher than others between those two, a bit south. This is the Aleph Mount, with the free town of vale at it's foot.
- Straight east from aleph mount, south from Mercury Lighthouse, you can see Kolima, and mogall just under.
- walking west of mogall will lead you to the Altin Peaks and the Lahmakan Desert.
- Just south of Lahmakan, you can see Champa and Ankohl. Two great and powerful cities.
- center-north, clearly, the Karagol sea.
- Just under Karagol is Suhalla, the desert, on the town with the same name.
- Just east of the desert is the Venus Lighthouse.
- Going a bit back up on the map, north-west of Karagol, you can see the Wild lake, and the wild mountain range. Legend says that tribes lives deep in the mountains.
- Now straight west from Venus Lighthouse, west of the great Fjord, stands Jupiter Lighthouse, and just a bit to the south (not on the map) stand Anemos, with it's big temple, built in honor of Luna and Sol.
- Now back on the east side of the continent, below suhalla, you can see the Lake Mist.
- Southeast from the lake, below the "^" shaped mountains, stand the Dehkan Mountain range.
- If you go southwest from there, you can't miss this gigantic plain. This is the Fields of Wind
- if you go west from the southern exit of the plain, you'll see the Great Mangrove. A small fishing town stands there.
- now straight east, you'll see two things. the first one is Yampi, a desert, and the second is the plain in which stands Air's Rock.
- Straight south from Air's rock, in a Valley, stands Garoh.
- East from Garoh, once you've crossed the mountain range there, you'll see a misty place. This is the Taopo swamp.
- under taopo, you'll see a big forest. This is Mar Forest.
- Continuing east, across the plains, you'll wind up in another desert-like place. This is the fields of sand.
- The southernest moutain range is called Toundra. It's peaks are always frozen, and snow during summer melts only a little bit.

all places aren't marked by red dots/pink dots. I just named the places on the spot, so you can name them however you want.
thank you all, again !

Good job.
One small problem though... is the dimensions of that image suppose to be 1,024px × 841px? (Since your last image is larger.) I know that photobucket resizes images down. (Which makes it nearly useless for large image projects.) I have noticed others that keep the original size, though... like tinypic (Edit: imgur). (And urls are small enough too.) So just those two things alone could make it easily replace photobucket, if you know what I mean. (Except I do still use photobucket.)

Remember kids! Before you go on that interview, remember to wash your hands in teawater! *Coughs on hand* (Excuse me, I just coughed up a little teawater, so they're still clean!) You wouldn't want that hiring manager to be unimpressed.

May the force be with you!
Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

Absolutely no idea what it's dimensions are ^^'
I used photobucket because i have an account on this site. I'll look at Tinypic.

Actually.. no.. it wasn't tinypic.. they have the same issue as well.
It was imgur.com... that's what I meant.... I completely forgot/got them mixed up. (Shame on me for not realizing until I looked it up myself...)
[small]I use to use tinypic a LONG time ago... before I moved to photobucket... I don't use tinypic anymore, though. And I strongly recommend to NOT use it... because you're images could get deleted in the long term. (At least when uploading as a guest, anyway.)[/small]

Mistakes happen... but now you know!

Fox: Referring to the Golf game.
Today at 03:35:07 PM
Fox: Interesting. So... Atrius's Editor = It seems there are fewer English lines in the (U) version? So the number of strings he coded in for is based on the (E) version.
January 17, 2018, 04:07:51 PM
KyleRunner: :D
January 16, 2018, 08:44:56 PM
Fox: I must say... life can be complicated..... when you have question(s) (via email) ... and it seems like they sort of get ignored. :D ; Fun, (And sometimes, a person may respond, and completely not answer the question.... so like... 3-person conversation.) Hahahaha!!
January 15, 2018, 07:26:16 PM
Fox: (path) 1 text=(address) char=(address) free=(address) ; << Well, closer to this... but yeah... even if I do choose to have defaults in the code, I could still use this method for overrides.
January 15, 2018, 07:24:28 PM
Fox: So like (path) 0 text=(address) char=(address) len=(number) ; (path) 1 free=(address) ; Or something. But that's just a quick example.
January 15, 2018, 06:59:14 PM
Fox: Hopefully. I was wanting to make it so you could put in the addresses/etc. as one of the arguments in the path. Hm?
January 15, 2018, 03:37:07 PM
KyleRunner: Nice! I hope you'll add compatibility with others games (GS1, Mario Golf and Tennis) soon.
January 14, 2018, 11:40:09 PM
Fox: Okay. Posted (in Downloads section) an initial cutdown version for now, for my text compressor. Basically to separate the code from my Editor for anyone who wants to mess with it. It only supports GS2, because I still didn't add the addresses/etc. for the other games.
January 14, 2018, 05:01:00 PM
Fox: Okay! Going to need to think how I want it to work. Initial thoughts is maybe have a number of arguments in the filepath thing. And have a number of shortcuts (files) to be used as examples. Assuming there are no problems.
January 14, 2018, 10:38:24 AM
KyleRunner: Well... I'm used to editing text ina a text editor, so... yes! Thanks in advance!
January 13, 2018, 11:38:43 PM
Fox: (Text editor = Text Document like notepad.)
January 13, 2018, 11:38:21 PM
Fox: Would you prefer during the text editing in a text editor? (Like what gstoolkit lets you do?) I could probably make a separate tool or something to compress it.
January 13, 2018, 10:10:02 PM
KyleRunner: Ok. Once I finish my Lost Age translation, I'll try a Mario Golf one. Thanks. (But I'll need help).
January 13, 2018, 10:03:17 PM
Fox: If you want to make it "permanent" (part of a hack), then you'd edit code in the ROM that writes to this location of the IDs you'd want to change. (You can find these locations by using a breakpoint debugger like SDL-H or no$gba.)
January 13, 2018, 10:00:11 PM
Fox: Reload/switch = Recommended to be done through Debug mode/warp menu, ofcourse... since doors seem to appear as if they were disabled? ; 03001238:01 and B+Start to get to warp menu.
January 13, 2018, 09:55:39 PM
Fox: @Kyle Runner = It might be, but you'd have to use the correct addresses for Mario Golf, rather than for GS2 as I have it right now. ; @raijinken = Yes. 02000454 = ID of leader. (Change this and reload/switch room you are in, enjoy.)
January 13, 2018, 02:23:29 PM
raijinken: Hey guys, is it possible to somehow change the lead character on the map? Was wondering. I remember there was a cheat to use Jenna, but what if I wanted Isaac, or Piers?
January 13, 2018, 02:10:03 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, Fox *
January 13, 2018, 02:09:37 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, is your text editor compatible with Mario Golf (GBA)?
