Ahhh... nothing like looking at a beautiful tropical island while it's freezing cold outside. I should know, because during the freak snowstorm of 2008, that's all I was doing for eight hours a day - creating the overhead driving map Nancy Drew scoots around on in Ransom of the Seven Ships. What you see above is the fruits of my icy labor. Well, a smaller version of the fruits, at least. OKAY, smaller, and with a couple of additional buildings that were removed from the final version of the game (namely, the lighthouse in the northwest and the water tower up top there).
To get a better sense of how much larger the map is in game, here are some full resolution screenshots:
I swear, I had Jimmy Buffet songs stuck in my head for months after this project was completed.
