So, according to the Ragnarok Doppler Radar Service, there's a world map coming our way. This is apparently what the world map will look like; not a compilation of existing field maps, but rather an artistic representation of the world. That kind of reminds me of how Anarchy Online—and World of Warcraft—handle their atlases ... or would that be atlaii?

Unfortunately I didn't have any "zoom in" sots of the world map as was mentioned, but I assume that it will be something like this for a certain range of magnification, then switch to a more detailed map ... or it might just do the two-tier magnification as seen in World of Warcraft. I'm not too sure. It IS a rather strange sight to see every town represented by a single castle's tower and cottage, but I can't complain; it works really well. The best part is, this allows you to see exactly where in the world party (and even guild?) members are. DEFINITELY can't complain about that one!

Okay, now it's true that Google Earth and Google Maps don't ACTUALLY do this kind of premium viewing thing, but I couldn't resist. Besides, Google Maps does have a similar error if they don't or can't provide maps of a certain magnification ... and then there's the fabled "moon cheese map."
