    Resource Type: Map of the Earth

    Maker Format: MV

    Art Style: RTP

    Description: I need a Map of the world that I can flood the ehck out of in RPGMaker MV to use as an altered future Map. If it's flooded already then even better. Relistic flooding, like if Antarctican totally melted due to some Giant earth changing disaster and sea levels kinds rose stuff. Is there a Map I can use? If this seems like something that should go into classifieds, PM and I'll repost it there.

    Removed the part of your post about paying if needed. No mention of payment is allowed in Resource Requests. My advice would be - see if someone can provide an existing or custom resource for free, and if no one helps you within a couple weeks, go ahead and make a thread in Classifieds.

    Worth mentioning is that flooding an existing map will be hard to do. You'd kind of need entirely new tiles/graphics for any spot that you're planning to flood. I suppose you could have a semi-translucent "water" graphic and just place it atop existing land tiles, but that will look pretty rough.

    This would be the result of the ice caps melting

    @Wavelength Thank you for that change, and my idea was just to have ocean where the flooding is.

    @Nekohime1989 THAT! That is basically what I am looking for but in RPGMaker map file.

    umm wow! If you are willing to do it then you can add as much or as little detail as you wish. Even just the continent shapes with the new flood outlines would be a big help and I am more than willing to give credit and a copy of the game when it's done if you wanted one. Share and share alike.

    Well I know MV is 256 x 256. I also know that there can be scene transitions so that you can move from 1 edge of 1 map to another edge of an adjoining map. Will 256 make it too squished? Should I go double that and use transitions? I was thinking 512 wide by 512 tall (if needed) and then doing transitions that way it did not seem too squished but I dont want to make things harder on you. What are your suggestions?

    @Andreaus-Whitefyre
    anything square would make it too squished. A standard mercator projection uses a 1.65 ratio.

    although if you split into western and eastern hemispheres that would work.

    Ok so basically have 2 Maps? That sounds like a good idea. How many tiles wide and tall will the 1:65 projection result in?

    I will have to learn how to edge link them. You WILL most certainly be getting credit and a copy of the game when its done. I fully insist.

    Again, thank you. :)

    At the standard Mercator projection ratio the full map would be the width divided by 1.65.
    Which means a width and height of 256 and height of 155 (truncated to integers)
