Here's a preview of the new Map of Creation in an almost finished state; there are just a few notes from the Devs that need to be sent to our brilliant cartographer and it'll be done. But rather than wait for that, here you go- happy holidays!

      @ Dev Team: Will there be a large version of the map, large enough to be used by fans to use for their map projects? I couldn't wait seeing this Map be filled with all the locations large and small from 3 editions of Exalted.

      What would be really helpful on either the map or in the text is a brief standard information on temporal mechanics since such things are important foundations of astronomy, farming, navigation (Land, Air, and Sea), and other timed actions. Too late probably, but telling someone that the day is 25 hours long per day, 7 days to a week, 4 weeks to a month, 3 months to a season, and 5 seasons a year, plus 5 days for Calibration could help storytellers plan events and character develop to scale. 425 days per year instead of 365 days will give players more things that can be done in a year, not less.

      Sooo, depending on what you ordered, the "Estimated" Delivery date was either December or October, of last year. Was an updated (hopefully more accurate, say +/- 1 month) delivery time frame posted yet? Because don't get me wrong, while small updates like this are nice, what would really be appropriate is a rough project schedule. Nothing fancy, just something that we can somewhat depend on. Because the last EDoD could be classified as a joke, that is if it were at all funny.....which it isn't. Is this too much to expect?

      Just checked the unofficial Exalted wiki for info on Nightfall Island. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered someone had edited it in 2011... with the story of my Campaign.... and tales of my Abyssals exploits on Nightfall Island

      By the almighty armpit hair of Zeus! Damn my eyes and forgive my impertinence! The map is indeed bigger than I had thought at first glance. I beg forgiveness, would you like to rofflestomp me now or later?

      P.S. I do believe that Nightfall Island is bigger than its predecessor as well. Fantastic! Maybe I'll be able to find some more info on my favorite place in creation in EX3.... I have no idea where to find any on it at all. But my troupe always ends up there. Hell, my abyssal has a 5-Point manse there surrounded by a City of Free ghost blooded and mortals working as one

      @ Some Furf, it really seems like you're trying to find reasons to be angry. Seriously, copy paste the url of the old one and the new one in the same window and go back and forth. It's full of obvious differences that have nothing to do with continent names.
      Also, its not uncommon practice for graphic artists not to give full resolution images before payment, because being ripped off is a hugely prevalent thing in the field. Go to sites like http://clientsfromhell.net/ if you don't believe me.

      Oh Jesus. This is amazing. I was trying to figure out how to get a copy of this image--when it was finally finished and in such a size to make this feasible--in a larger format to show people. then someone below reminded me there was the map option. And then I remembered I _had_ the map as part of my contribution. So yes. My day? Made.

      Also Ian, did you use an Earth projection that gives accurate/scale areas for each continent?

    14. Gurahl.small

      Creator Ellen Schousboe on December 31

      Sad we can't see a higher resolution.

      Hmmmmm what are those circles around the Blessed Isle, Caul, western isles, and southeast isle? I seem to recall that the Caul is cut off from the Loom of Fate, so maybe the circles around it represent that?

      Ian, thanks for sharing those comparisons again. You remind me that most of the new water in the East was added outside of the boundaries of the earlier map. Your second map makes me want to take the Earth continents and see if I can smoosh them together and fit them on top of the landmass of the new map -- is your Earth-to-Creation comparison map to the same scale as the map from this update?

    15. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator William Parker-Adams on December 31

      @James Shaw It was only a first impression. A complete snap judgement without any thought. I don't dislike variety, but I do despise arbitrary variety, hence the result of the snap judgement. Honestly, I like the idea of adding extra water to the map in areas other than the West, but without knowing more I can't make a more sensible comment without sounding like a complete idiot.

      Creator Some furf on December 30

      No, he said it's the only size "we" have. Collectively speaking in both of his posts.

      Now go back to the previous update. "Jared is working on my last comments". That came directly from Richard. It was not prefaced with "From Holden" or "From John", so clearly he is involved in the mapmaking process, unless some other uncredited person is given access to the Kickstarter account in order to post about maps some of the time (But not this time).

      Also, this map is consistent with the other sizes previewed because the only previews have been ones directly uploaded to Kickstarter, which, as I've said, is limited to a width of 700 pixels.

    22. Ffavatar.small

      Creator Dmitri K. on December 30

      Some Furf: You are working on conjecture. Stop jumping to conclusions. Rich didn't say it was the working copy, he didn't say it's the only size that exists, he said it's the only size _he has_ (he, not the artist, not onyx path, not the devs) and the only one he needs (to show us, because the revisions aren't done and it's consistent with the other sizes previewed so far).

      He never claimed the things you say he claimed.

    24. Pony_furf_white.small

      Creator Some furf on December 30

      But the thing is, Ian, with this being the almost-complete version of the map, all the large-scale items should be taken care of already. Just compare this to the map on the project's front page, which was posted back in May. The land masses haven't changed at all, so unless the forest borders needed to be put in a VERY particular spot, there's nothing left to perfect but details like names and locations. Since only the names of the continents are legible, I can't believe this is the actual copy used to verify those details.

      Just look at that ring of text around the east coast of The Blessed Isle. Can you read it? If you have the production notes you can probably work out what it should be, but can you verify that it's spelled correctly? What about every other place in Creation? What if one mistake happened to slip by earlier? A large copy is important at every stage.

      And besides, if filesize is actually a big issue somehow, then you can compromise in a much better way. Save it as a 95% quality JPG instead of a 3000x2000 uncompressed PNG. That'll get it down to, what, 2MB at the absolute most? Hardly a problem for anyone, even if they were using mobile internet.

      If Richard had just come clean and said that 700xXXX is the limit on images uploaded for Kickstarter, that would be cool. If Onyx Path wanted to keep unfinished copies small so that they wouldn't be circulated once the very final image is published, that would make sense. But claiming that this is the actual copy they are working with is absolute nonsense.

    25. N1.small

      Creator Ian Watson on December 30

      Please don't ignore the "be respectful and considerate" text right next to the Post Comment button.

      As Rich said, at this stage he personally did not need anything larger because the issues currently being worked on are large-scale things which can be seen at smaller resolutions. You don't want to be tossing high-res 15MB files around when you can just use 150KB files.

      When the large-scale items are all taken care of, then the finer details can be perfected.

    26. Pony_furf_white.small

      Creator Some furf on December 30

      You don't need a larger file? Seriously? Take a close look at it. There's a LOT of little text all over the place that is utterly impossible to read. You had plenty of back and forth with Jared to get the details right, but as-is, how can you possibly verify that anything is correct?

    27. 41709_656777357_2589396_q.small

      Creator Richard Thomas on December 30

      Dear Some furf: you are welcome to believe what you want, but I have never lied to our fans. We didn't get or need a larger file because Jared was fixing a few things that we could clearly see at the resolution of this version. Just because you don't understand something doesn't call for personal attacks.

    28. Pony_furf_white.small

      Creator Some furf on December 30

      Further to that accusation of lying, I went looking around Kickstarter for examples of large artwork being posted and I found a consistent trend. I found several images with a horizontal resolution of exactly 700 pixels, but nothing beyond that. So it seems to me that this must be the limit Kickstarter places on uploads.

      Thus, we have two possible scenarios. Either the image was resized manually before being uploaded, in which case a larger copy may not have been passed into Richard's hands, or it was downscaled automatically by Kickstarter, in which case Richard does have a large copy and he's just chosen not to upload it anywhere else.

    29. Pony_furf_white.small

      Creator Some furf on December 30

      This is the biggest size available right now? I don't believe that for a minute. Why would an artist ever submit a severely-downscaled image for approval of its details? Why would any developer accept this as-is?

      Either something weird is going on at Onyx Path or Richard is lying. I can't imagine which is the case or why.

      Creator Brandon L. Quina on December 30

      Wow, that's awesome. Just wish we had a higher resolution version of it; so many awesome little details that look like they'd be pretty cool to see up close.

      Creator Simon Geard on December 30

      Wasn't too impressed by parts of the new map initially, particularly the jagged coastlines around the north, which were visually jarring in images like the ones StephenLS linked to below.

      But it's looking a lot nicer in this rendering... those hard lines don't stand out so much with the addition of the mountain ranges and trees and general mappy detail. Good work, folks.

      Wut. Doesn't the production process go from high-res to low-reslow-res, because it's impossible to go the other way around because of physics/information theory? How could you possibly *not* have a high-res version?

      The game is still set in R.Y. 768; changes to the setting, like the sudden presence of the Caul and the Dreaming Sea, and the new coastline for the far North, will be presented as having always been there.

      It's kinda like going from Marvel to Ultimate Marvel, or old DC to New 52 DC, except not as drastic everywhere—if a setting element worked well, you're likely to find it largely unchanged, and I don't think we have any plans to turn previously sympathetic characters into colossal jerks or serial killers.

      Though based on the size, just how far away is the Blessed Isle form... everything? And some of the oceans?
      Still, quality on this is phenomenal.

      ...though part of me wants to go around the edges with rainbows and glitter and fill in "THE WYLD!!! :D" (Yes, I know, not fully accurate, but certainly a great contrast ;P Clearly just need to put the map on a bunch of Lisa Frank binders.)
