We've got lots of players making some really interesting locations and even people banding together to making full grown villages of their own.

And I thought to myself, what we need, is someone to make a map!

Anyone feeling up to the task?? Probably be easier to do it area by area, rather than tackle the entire thing in one go. Maybe a few of you could band together in this most noble of tasks?

Aye but we can just map the points of interest.

The spawn area, old city, new city, the biomes around the stargates, player towns and villages - rather than each and every building out in the wilderness

>:3 I really like this idea. I was planning on manually mapping it, but this works too.

I'm working on mapping out some areas using Journeymap, here's the New City:


And the area just around the desert biome stargate:

Here's quite a bit of land around the forest biome spawn. Even went south to the north side of Forthwind.

I've uploaded what I had done earlier to my host and put it in a google maps interface so it's easily browsed and what not:
mud.owlbox.net/starmine/index.html When I figure out the longitude/latitude stuff I'll put markers on the cities and spawn points.

We just like doing what we can to help!
If I could help with the mapping, I would, but Muddy can only use it on his account, lol.
I could get the same plugin on mine, but it would be really hard to merge the finished images.
And nobody likes griefers, so I always try to keep an eye out.
After all, we're part of a community so we've all got to look out for each other, right? Smile

Hey mud, something you might be able to make use of, if you have the latest journeymap, v.1.5, you can load more chunks at once with:

C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\journeyMap

Open journeyMap (properties file)
and the line that says:
chunk_offset=2
You can change that number up to max 10, although set to higher numbers obviously puts a larger load on your CPU, but....it does allow you to map much further around you

Hope this is of some help

I've updated my north maps so they appear smaller on this site, but you can still click for a full sized version. Also added night time view

I've got a different link set up for the Google maps page @ maplib here: maplib.net/map.php?id=13922 This allows annotations so we can know where stuff is (have to register on site)
