Arcadia Map by Cal-Erstein Arcadia Map by Cal-Erstein
EDIT: I am reworking this map in higher resolution at the moment (I wasn't happy with the size of discoveries upon printing). It will probably take me quite some time to complete it, but of course I'll post it here when it is finished.

Description: Here's a preview for a map I've been working on from the game "Skies of Arcadia." No high res versions of the Arcadia world exist, so I basically had to blow up the small world map and then reconstruct it by hand. While doing so, I drew in all of the discoveries and marked their perspective heights/paths.

PLEASE NOTE: That while the map is mostly accurate, I didn't verify every single miscellaneous island or plateau in-game. This map was created accurately "within reason." Lastly, Soltis was not included (partially for spoiler reasons, but also due to overlapping issues).

Wow. I never realized how many discoveries there were....looks like it's time to dust off my copy and get searching.

Wow, I've been looking for a map like this for ages! Nice touch on adding the giant monsters and Elcian. Is there a chance you could also make a "clean" version without all of the discovery circles and paths? I'd love to make that top half my new wallpaper :)

Great job!

That might be possible, but I'd still have to finish the version with all the discoveries/monsters first... and I've unfortunately become too busy to get that done anytime soon! D: (It involves a lot of redrawing, and IRL has gotten quite busy lately).

Oh wow... you even included all those dang discoveries!!! Must have been a pain! But seriously, this looks awesome. I can't imagine trying to map all this out. Some of those discoveries took me forever to find!
