Greetings and Good Morning Friends and Avatars! I am pleased to bring to you a project that had been sitting on the back burner for quite a while. I finally found a little bit of time today to put the files into a zip file to share with everyone. Back in the day, Xenerkes Dragon did some amazing work in the community that inspired many of my fan artwork that I did back in 2000 and 2001. (I feel old now…) Xenerkes has since returned to the community now 13 years later and is continuing his awesome work..
One of his works was the ability to extract the maps out of Ultima 1 through 6. As a child I drew alot of fantasy maps, and that was something that continued through high school, college, and still to this day… So in honor of Xenerkes, as well as to fulfill my promise from years ago to community members, for whom I promised to do this for during Xenerkes absence…. I give you a download of the TGA file format maps of Ultima 5. (I highly recommend Photoshop and other graphic/image editing software to open and use these files).
These are the same maps I have shared versions of a few on my Deviant Art page, as well as on Facebook on the UDIC Facebook page. I also used the overland map and converted it to a 300 DPI file and sized it for a print project for the Ultima 5 map on canvas that many have seen in the Shroud of the Avatar streams I have been a part of. While it was only an art experiment, I still enjoyed doing it. (A quarter was used to give you a better perception of what the scale is in the photos.)
In no particular order, the maps in this zip file include:
