three underground maps – which is better?


trying to see what map style is easiest to use, here are three maps of Hax Nuit’s underground (top one is from yesterday)

the first is labelled and uses the sun’s shading to show the tunnels, the second is minimally labelled and highlights the paths, and the third is a combo of both

is any one of them particularly more useful than the others?

  1. I really like the last one because it is nice to have the features highlighted, but I also like to have the path and access points there for guidance.

  2. Wow Ener !!
    You’ve really let your adventuresome side loose into the wilds eh ! Major Improvements daily !

    I like Map-3 for your application. Another method, slightly more adventurous would not provide much of any map OR in only ‘pieces” which have to be recovered to continue the quest. IE: Locate the Chest at the end of the hall under the stairs to get your first Map Piece which will lead you towards the second map piece… etc….

    Maybe I should shuddup eh ! ;-) seeing how I am partly to blame for your current ‘diversion into mazes & adventures’ away from Enclave Harbour & SOAS.

    Certainly going to attain the 5 Poutine Award of Excellence, possibly even with a Bannock Bread Cluster… Ohh Ohhh got the munchies! hehehehe

  3. thank you Pam – with your heavy-duty VW work with a particular exacting need for specific communication (MOSES), your perspective means a ton! if it’s good enough for you (and thus government work), it’s good enough for me! =)

    yes WhiteStar, you propelled this along like a railroad cart heading downhill with no brakes! BUT . . . it’s been fun and a great way to mark the end of my OCD daily blogging (i’ll still blog excessively but not feel compelled to do 1.4 posts per day!) =D

    yum, bannock (similar to scones to outsiders)

    *changes Hax Nuit to Nuit d’Etoile Blanche*

  4. Put down another vote for map 3, and for Whitestar’s suggestion of a map quest.

    The whole project looks extremely well put together. Bravo!

  5. […] make a dedicated web page with the back story (as written the other day) and the latest maps (underground and mazes) – that way only one link needs to be accessed, if so […]
