    Classic Eriador map remastered with 4x times higher resolution than original!

    Posted this on reddit, thought it could post it here as well. Hopefully we will see high-res ingame maps soon ^^

    I agree, the worst maps currently are the "google earth" ones.

    Yeah I don't like the google earth style maps in new regions, I do however like new giant maps of Middle-earth, though still prefer the old style maps like the Eriador one shown here, but new ones not bad.

    What exactly do you mean by "remastered"?

    Did you recompose the image from high-res sources which aren't generally available to the public? Did you use some kind of pixel interpolation software? A lot of manual photoshop work? Or a combination?

    I assume its photoshop instead of High resolution, if you look at his other maps on reddit closely you can clearly tell a Painting option was used. But still nice work nonetheless

    Probably ran it through one of the graphic AI Neural Network upscalers that are all the rage now for older game textures.

    Here's a forum thread with examples (It's a big thread, kinda have to search around)

    This map was so much better than what we have now. This was by far my favorite style, I really miss it. I would love if all maps looked like this.
