However, in SC4, it will be up to you to decide whether or not to replicate this giant, or to simply create something new.
This map was created using new 16bit technology that makes maps 100% accurate. Created entirely from 16bit PNG greyscale (JPEG is 8bit), the map never drops below 16bits of data. It is spaced for 16m per pixel, 1:1 in the SC4 world. The elevations are 100% accurate as per DEM data. This is an exact replica!
The map measures 7 large tiles wide by 10 large tiles long (1793x2561). A config is included in the package, however don’t limit yourself creatively, as it is all large tiles.
The various harbors and landings in the city were represented in the DEM data, and therefore are still present. They only take a few seconds to remove, however. Do so at your own risk!!
The Columbus Terrain Textures were used when opening/saving the city tiles in game, but any terrain mod can used to do the same.
