This (almost complete) collection of maps from Akiba's Trip has finally been ported to MMD by UnrealXActor and I HAD to create a wallpaper image to showcase it.
Everyone in this community needs these maps. Period.

It was very hard work. Achieve the extraction without failure of those maps. Unfortunately. I have not been able to extract all the maps, because the hexadecimal is incomplete. Besides that the textures are encrypted, it is double work. But as the map seemed nice to me, it hits the Japanese environment in mmd. And something original. The difference is that in the real one it is JR and in Akiba it is UR. For the copyright.
Yeah, a LOT of the businesses in Akiba had their logo / name changed in the game itself (Onoden is now Denden, KFC is KCF, etc) to escape copyright issues, even down to the Boss Coffee vending machines being called 'BOOS' and having Tommy Lee Jones face obscured by an ad.
It's one of the reasons that whenever I'm there, I snap as many photos as possible to use for textures in props/models for MMD.
Real talk, I spend about 14 days in Japan every year, and my home base is ALWAYS at the APA Hotel in the backstreets of Akihabara (near Mandarake and the DragonQuest themed Lawson's conbini) and this game 'map' is about as close as you're gonna get (although it's still missing the Kotobukiya / Super Potato area of JunkStreet and the Yodobashi Camera map from the game) to walking around the real thing.
