A "MAP" MAPmod! ;)

Post by count_fuzzball »

I'm happy to release the first version of my map mod for the MAP series.

What you get is edited versions of the MAP Demo's Korea, WOV's North Vietnam and all maps in WOM. As well as an edited blankbox so the command menu is easier to read (taken from the MAP demo). Also available is the "source" GIMP xcf file I used when editing the blankbox files.


Visuals only, you will need to purchase the respective games.

How are they edited?

The maps in the game are scanned military flight maps (specifically Tactical Pilotage Charts, if i'm not mistaken. These are at a scale of 1:500,000) hat have had their colours inverted and then the hue changed so they are a two tone "sand"/"blue" kind of colour. I've simply inverted these maps once again and then played with the hue settings until I got a result I was happy with.

I have also included both 'light' and 'dark' versions of the North Vietnam and main MidEast map so it's easier to read the game text labels.

You can download it here:

Here's what it looks like:

Those graphics look real good, so good they look as if they were professionally done. Hope they become the standard for the series.
