The Best Carto Maps

Post  Lovelace on Sun May 30, 2010 10:41 am

For those doing cartography, these texmod maps are the very best in my opinion, since they not only show what needs mapping more clearly than the "foggy" maps, but they also show where you physically cannot go. Right click/save as the links below.

Download texmod, to start it double click Texmod.exe. That will open a window, the top option is Target Application. Click the folder and it will open a browse window, select Program Files -> Guild Wars -> Gw.exe (depending on where your Guild Wars application is installed, but that's the default location on a Windows machine) and click Open.

I leave PACKAGE MODE selected, and click the smaller folder icon in the center. That will pop up a smaller browse window, where you can choose the location of the downloaded maps. Since I'm working in both Tyria and Elona I select the Tyria map, which is then added to the left hand window, and then Browse again and select the Elona map. Both will then show up in the left side under PACKAGE NAME.

Then just click Run and GW will start. It's ok to close the Texmod window after the application starts, it won't affect anything.

When you view the large map you'll see the overlay that shows you what you've mapped (clear), where you need to map (transparent overlay) and where you cannot map (solid overlay). Then I just keep the mission map open on my desktop as I'm doing vqs and scrape the walls. It's still a long, tedious process, but - I'm ashamed to admit - one to which I'm thoroughly addicted.

**Some are worried they will be banscythed for using Texmod to map, but Arenanet has indicated they have no problem with "benign" uses of such things, they just won't help you if it somehow damages your account/hard drive/life.

Dead links. I'll find a way to repackage mine or the whole thing.

Here it is with the one carto file in wiki that has everything.

LINK HERE-> http://www.mediafire.com/?vjnsixe2d4tt8h8
Then click the white text link when redirected. The buttons/ads are fakes.
> http://www.mediafire.com/?vjnsixe2d4tt8h8 < click this one after linking its the white text.
Mission Objectives:
It covers every map in game except GW:B areas. Use it in caves and dungeons to not get lost.

It works exactly like the ones above.

Black: edge of world areas you found
Dark gray: un-mappabe
Clear: mapped
Transparent/light grey: mappable

Bonus: Use these to look cool.
I also packed my favorite UI skins I found in wiki.
