    Anyone who has scrolled for images online of Middle-Earth or viewed the Jackson films can find an appreciation for the maps displayed in these mediums, but for those of us who wander Minecraft Middle-Earth we are not so lucky.

    Aided before with only a dynmap we were pretty much left alone to discover the world by ourselves....

    But no longer!

    Taken from a full resolution image of 24,000 x 22,000 pixels, I've created maps for anyone looking to print off and create a neat poster, or just have a reference image while exploring MCME.

    Each map comes in 4 different display sizes:
    • 1460 x 1080
    • 2920 x 2160
    • 5840 x 4320
    • 6218 x 4600 (roughly 1/4th the original resolution of 24k x 22k)
    You can also chose between which Maps you would like to use:
    • A parchment emulated map
    • A parchment emulated map with texts
    • A full colored emulated map
    • A full colored emulated map with texts
    Samples (these are the lowest resolution maps):

    • parchment emulated map

    • parchment emulated map with texts

    • full colored emulated map

    • full colored emulated map with texts

    Enjoy!

    Resources used in the creation of these maps:

    1. Minecraft Middle-Earth Build Server
    2. JourneyMap Mod w/ Forge
    3. Gimp 2.8
    4. Conquest Resourcepack
    5. MCME Gondor Resourcepack
    6. Custom Tolkienian Text.tff
    7. 26 Hours of patience while flying around to render the map

    *side note*

    Because this was done in October and while portions of the map are under construction (for example: The Misties and Harithilien) some bits of the map are rendered and shown this way.

    That's awesome! But the text is barely readable. Couldn't if be black? Or white?

    Also it would be so cool if it was a vector, svg file instead of a 24k x 22k raster image.

    These are super cool? Might I be so bold as to request major roads be marked? (i.e. great east road, great west road-greenway)

    This is like super-awesome!!!

    I just recently started to screenshot the dynmap out in little bits to get a map to make a comeback of my old map - map, but now i'd like to ask you @pheonixsang if i possibly cold use your work for that?. I would use Photoshop and will also give the mod a try myself so that i can overlay the areas that are WIP with more up-to-date renders. Thus we'd have a map that can constantly be updated...
