I recently began playing with beloved classic from my first encounter with the RM franchise. Whilst toying with it, I set out to tackle the notoriously limiting, unsatisfactory mapping engine.
I resolved to make a full scale town for my players to explore and adopt as a permanent base of operations, similar to Old Tristram in Diablo 1, and other games with central safe zone locations. I was so impressed with what I got done, I wanted to share this treat to remind everyone of how magical mapping is.
