Hello all,
I've recently run through the game and noted down absolutely everything I found, and made a set of maps out of them.

I know we already have a map of the game, but I'd like to think that this one is a little more...complete.
Let me know what you think! I'm more than happy to add on to what's here, especially if it's missing something.
I was hoping that through our cooperation, we could make up a guide for the game together. Maybe.
Another thought I had was to put in the cooking guide that's found on this forum, and put more in about finding the treasures.
I've put it up on my website, please feel free to host it yourself if you can, since it's around 6.5MB it's probably going to toast my bandwidth pretty quick if everyone downloads it at once.

Comments, questions, suggestions always welcome!
I put them in a pdf for convenient cross-platforming capabilities (man that's a lot of C's)

wow, amazing. looked through the whole thing and it really covers a lot of bases. it made me think of something I had been wondering if the bulb contents are the same everytime you play, reason I wonder is they are not the same colour each time.

this is a super informative map and very well produced to boot. there was a couple of things that I didn't know about, like an arcane poultice I missed en route to Mithalis. my only suggestion would be to add a key to what the various symbols you added mean. I can infer what they are if I jog my memory to what was in that area, but some of the little dots ( grey circle with dot in it, light blue dots on #15 ) I'm not sure what their exact meanings are. I am amazed that you indicated all the leaves! and the unmappable areas in kelp forest and sun temple. it's very thorough! 

by cooking guide, I can imagine you are thinking a nice graphical, x-referenced one arn't you. for CCC how about html? that way the ingredients can be linked with the recipies. I'm thinking like on www.peeron.com where it shows what Lego brick comes in what colours, what set, what year etc.

This map really is amazing. Very good job!

And inkblob, the bulb contents are the same every time. I got red bulbs exactly the same spots where he listed it and not on others where he listed special bulbs.

You can host it at www.willhostforfood.com, they allow hotlinking and your bandwith will not die. Wink

And I think the adding of a legend would be cool too. Like: small green dot = leaves you can plug, ...

Wow! Incredible and amazing work you done there! The map's got everything, what's needed. If you do have time to make some additional work on this stuff, try to make the legend, so everything will be fully clear to all people, because some might just not understand for what some spots are placed for  Smiley.

and keep up the good work  Smiley

I'm amazed by all the other people in here, the only thing that I think that's missing is that you can swim against some currents and not against others.

Further, that's a perfect map. VERY good job.

I can't remember off hand, since I don't have the files handy, but it took me at least 25 hours of work, since I'd estimate it took me twice as long as the save file I used to explore.
I'm amazed by all the other people in here, the only thing that I think that's missing is that you can swim against some currents and not against others.
I thought about doing that, and I still might do it. Maybe you'll see that in the update.
And I think the adding of a legend would be cool too. Like: small green dot = leaves you can plug, ...
Yeah, I knew I forgot something when I was throwing the whole deal together. I had a full page for the legend, but I guess it slipped through the cracks when I made the pdf. It'll be in the update for sure.

I think I'll also work on the ingredient list on the last page. Maybe I'll switch it out and put in the recipe guide that's in a forum topic here, with images of each ingredient, its effects, where to find it, all that good stuff. It'll take a while, but I think it'll be nice to have all that info in one place.

Maybe I could even get some snazzy artwork for the guide from Alec or Derek? The media release artwork is all well and good, but I don't want to get in trouble by adding copyrighted stuff they hadn't cleared for public release. Of course, I could just stick in a disclaimer at the end, or something.

Well, I must say that's incredible.  I think there are a few things on there that I didn't find.  Not that I really felt a need for items, but it would have saved some time finding certain menu items.  Can't say enough praise really.  Good work.

I thought I'd ask here before I go crazy.

Does anyone have isolated images (no background or whatever) of all the ingredients? Kind of like the ones you see on my maps, but with the black "cartoon" border still intact. The ones I have on file lost their border when I was trying to extract them from screenshots, that's why I had to make the background black.

Since I'm putting together the complete list of ingredients/recipes I thought it'd be nice to have clean images to display for each entry.

Alec? Derek? Is there any way I could get the cooking images straight from the source? That would obviously be best, since they'd be full-size with the highest level of detail and completely clean. Please!

The only thing you missed is the second health egg.


You would not BELIEVE how frustrated I was when trying to find it.

Funny. I just discovered the glowing plant that brings glowing jellyfishes to your home cave in my second run. Seems as if I totally missed it the first time without noticing that I missed it. Tongue
