    I have too much time on my hands, so I worked out the route you take in unreal by matching all the entrances and exits.

    CLICK FOR BIG

    The first few levels seem to overlap in an impossible way, which is unfortunate, but after harobed village or so it seems to all work out ok.
    I dunno, just thought some of you guys might be interested.

    EDIT EDIT: Added Return to Na Pali
    EDIT: I remade the map to be bigger, clearer and fix a few rotation issues, and to actually have all the levels in it. Enjoy or something!

    Interesting work - thanks.

    Looking at the relative size of Nyleve Falls and Sunspire I am struck by the thought that when I emerged, blinking, into the sunlight at Nyleve, I couldn't believe how big the world was compared to what I had seen before - and then there was Sunspire!

    Sure, share it around if you want, I might do return to na pali as well just to see how that works out.

    I remember one site had screenshots of the maps from above and linked them together, but I don't think it was ever this complete. Very cool. :tup:

    I've toyed with the idea of merging a few maps together in the past, may revisit that idea at some point...

    They overlap in impossible way, because originally they were part of a hub. Passage was joined with Nyleve at the back of the box room near rrajigar mine acess. There was also the boiler room which was cut and above was the part of the beginning of dark arena, so ceremony ended up in about the same spot too. When they decided to make it one linear game all of this wasn't considered anymore. But this is the explanation why it overlaps in such odd way.

    I did a new bigger nicer version of the map, and updated the OP with it. Or you can click here.

    Awesome work !
    Takes me back to the 8-bit days when we regularly mapped our games.

    no but seriously.
    this looks kind of cool.

    I don't remember much about the original Unreal though.
    only played through it once.

    Funny enough, that was the end of the game in the "Special Edition" shareware release.

    I did a new map with Return to Na Pali in it, because why not. Interestingly, one of the maps has what I assume is the Sunspire visible, giving an anchor point to Unreal proper. This puts Gala's Peak quite near the beginning of the original game. Weird.

    Added it to the OP.

    Arcturus,

    That plot of Unreal maps would make a great poster suitable for framing, maybe about 18" X 24" to hang on the wall. It would be nice if some enterprising individual would make such a picture available for sale, printed up like a poster.

    That's actually quite brilliant OP and deserves to be bumped.

    *Bump*
