This is the overworld map from Final Fantasy IV redone at a much higher resolution (although the image here is only 25% of the size of the original and compressed for this site). 

This project took approximately 150 hours to complete. I tried to make the image unique in all areas and not to copy and paste too much, but the size is so big there are elements that are used in multiple areas (although no 2 elements are identical). This was my first time doing something like this. The PSB file sizes were pretty crazy! Hope you like it.

Ohai!

Firstly, sorry for my bad English (not my first language...).

I'm sometimes working on unpretentious Photoshop scripts... and, currently, I'm enjoying by making a flexible fantasy worldmap generator (using perlin noise and such).

This is a project that will never be for commercial purposes, I would just like to share a new tool for roleplay fans.
My issue concerns the textures... I can not find as pretty as those of your speedart.

Could you link me the textures and the several mountains, hills and the likes pictures, please? :3
Thanks a lot! o/

PS : Nice work!

This is incredible, and that video was incredible. Masterful photoshopping displayed there. And, of course, you have a wonderful talent for aesthetic.
My only (stupid) disappointment was that when I first saw the title, I confused it for FFVI, instead of FFIV, so I was really looking forward to that. But, hey, if you're taking suggestions... =D

Pretty incredible. I watch the whole youtube video of the creation process and was in awe the entire time. Not only are you incredibly skilled with photoshop, but you've also got an amazing artistic mind to be capable of recreating the textures of the land and water as you did.

I tip my hat to you, sir.
