I like maps.

Pen tool over show map of Equestria (at the time), leaving the base shape a solid color then stitching cut-outs of satellite pictures of mountain ranges and other useful topographic features to build the satellite view feel. Then convert all of that to black and white and throw a layer of solid green over-top for the green glow. Add lines and other finishing touches as needed.

this is helping me soo much on my fic, thanks man.

any chance you could add some more specific locations like splendid valley?

At some point I was going to revise it and try and accommodate for the "Scale not to distance" disclaimer on the official map, which this is based off of. This would help me - where I'm using it - add finer details and provide a larger space for sandbox RP.

So if I do this I may look back into a few locations and add some things like roads and highways, if I can remember any that are significant enough and that I can build off of. But that depends on when I'm not feeling lazy and not working on other things. And if I remember to come back to this.

I admire the map, but isn't Hoofington supposedly coastal?  Also, it's mentioned as being south of the locales frequented by Pip.

Hoofington was inland as I recall. The only "coastal" part related to it was a naval base. Hoofington itself was on a river, or rather where I river split after dropping down some falls and then merging again.

And it's south.

uh... hoofington is on the west pal...
AaronMk's avatar
That is the west.

west west not the southwest.
also everfree is on the west with ponyville on a side, canterlot on a series of montains that i call "Sierras Mares" with the Big 52 on the east, the region of hornsmith on south near of Fillydelphia, to north the crystal empire, and more on the north the city of braytanic empire "Manechester". also no forgets some little regions how Buckingham, Chicacolt... and more to south the Marexico.

I don't think I ever remember ever being explicitly mentioned back in the day and Project Horizons was - as I remember - being incredibly vague on its location. I always thought of it as being on the west-side myself, but it also needed to be far enough south it'd be a direct land target of the Zebra war machine. Putting it any further north would put it out of harms way and basically make the war-time history irrelevant. To get at where Hoofington is the Zebra would be better off giving the ground of Las Pegasus more shit than they could The Hoof.

Anywhere else would be more defensible than it is warranted. And The Hoof was supposed to be somewhere close to the front so that the Zebra would go to die in droves trying to reach it. Going more north would not be that.

oh but remeber the FoE of kkat, everfree was on west and blakcjack pass near to everfree before go to hoof.
check this map...

Or let's not forget that if Hoofington was placed anywhere according to Somber (apperantly) it destroys everything.

Because he can't geography and if it were where he apparently claimed it was with a coast as it has then we forget everything north of the Crystal Mountains. They no longer exist.
David-Irastra's avatar
right! 3 points of 3.
kkat mentioned something about CE on someplace... lets me see if i found them...
AaronMk's avatar
And given many side-fics since FoE's original publication have been trying to shoehorn in everything that's happened since season 2, including locations, its doubtful it could probably hold its original geography.
David-Irastra's avatar
yes, but also remeber that the hoof is near to sea from the south and west, also that there is highlands on the north.
AaronMk's avatar
That's way back and I'm working on trying to merge the two with what is the show-accurate map. I don't ever remember the explicit placement of the Everfree being mentioned in relation to Canterlot. If anything I recall New Applelosa being south-ward, or I got that impression.

The point might also be raised if Project Horizons or any of the side-stories are 100% canonical to the core FoE story given the liberties they might take. Project Horizon's canon, so far as I'm concerned - is useful only in so far it fills in a few war-time gaps untouched by Kkat.

withot doubt you make a great job, the time and newes fics make more dificult stablish the exact locations. but you make a "stable" version. don't mind if i use your map on a little project that i have on mind?

can i ask if you considered the map that was released by hasbro?
