I primarily post at TRF, but want to get as much input on this as possible.
So, in short, it's the map i'm working on that shows ever single location featured in Tomb Raider games.

Newest: Revision 7

Read the mapguide.txt. The Map Guide. READ IT.

Changes:
+ Added locations for the Gameboy titles, TRU DLC and the Lara Croft spin-off;
+ Added state borders (no, no South Sudan for you);
~ Adjusted "Atlantis", "Rig", "Maria Doria" and "U-Boat" marker positions;
~ Changed the title to "The Travels of Lara Croft" to reflect GoL addition;
~ Switched to "revision" numbering instead of "versions";
~ Updated the overall colour scheme and brightness levels;
~ Updated marker design;
~ Delicious uncompressed TIFF render for great justice;
- Removed the screenshot borders (too fugly, may return if I figure out how to capture widescreen shots in classic TRs sans Lara's bum);
- Removed the unified timeline (no longer relevant, even more so if you consider the reboot to start a separate continuity);
- Removed the wind rose (temporarily);

It's always done. Changes between version are either cosmetic or dot/caption adjustments.
Unless you mean adding Underworld locations to it.

PS. This is my second post here. I don't where the hell others came from.
PPS. Nvm.

It's looking great;) You have definately got to post when it is complete because when I say this I think I speak for everyone who has seen it and we would love to see the finished map:D

Thanks!

But like i said - it's perfectly useable at this stage. The foundation has been laid, so every new version merely corrects some dots/captions here and there and tries to improve in eye-candy department.


Oh! Hai thar Cog!

I salute you, fellow TRF'er.
