Hello there !
I recently get back to playing Arcanum, after playing it ten years ago, and I found the game as good as I remembered.
By looking around the web, I found this interesting thread on this forum:
The World of Arcanum – Interactive Map
When I saw this, I said to myself: “Hey! Let’s use Google Map API to make an Interactive Map”
So this little project of mine was born. Here is the result:
At first, it was only the World Map, then I found Arcanum Panorama Maker
Thanks to some translation tools, I understood how to create Town map from Drog’s High Resolution Town map pack.
So on the world map, you can for example click on Tarant, and see all the Town maps for Tarant (City
, Bate’s Mansion
, Tarant Closed Sewers
, etc.) and navigate the map with Google Map.
Maps for the Void are found on Roseborough (after all, you are send to the void from the Ring of Brodgar – most of the time)
With the .zip archive, you just have to unzip it in a folder, and double click on index.html to start navigating on Arcanum, no http server is required! Feel free to use it, and if you have any idea to expand or improve it, you can freely use these files.
(PS: bear with my poor grammar, i tried my best to be as understandable as possible, but english is not my first language.)
