Welcome to A World of Ice and Fire. Long time followers of War of Conquest will notice we've undergone a cleanup of our Moddb page and a bit of a re-branding in light of Awoiaf's project encompassing Conquest and all other interesting areas set in GRRM's world; from Age of Heroes to a Dream of Spring, we'll be mapping every area of the globe from Westeros to Asshai for our scenarios. An ambitious goal to be sure.
Our first release, named A Dream of Spring, is set for launch fairly soon and we hope to bring that public along with a Clash of Kings scenario too (Clash of Kings is available NOW over at Sevenrealms.co.uk) as a side-release. These will showcase all-new units, buildings, textures and various other improvements. Some other scenarios planned are as follows: Andal Invasion / War of Conquest / Dance of Dragons / Blackfyre Rebellion / Faith Militant Uprising / Ninepenny Kings / Reyne-Tarbeck Revolt / Robert's Rebellion and More. Some scenarios will use the current map of Westeros while others will require new maps of Essos and further East! It's our intention to have eventually provided a map for every inch of the known world.
I'll show some pictures of the Westeros map below before going on to ramble about My plans for the map moving forward, as while many seem to like the current map... I'm confident I can do better...
I started mapping nearly a year ago I believe? It's not something I'd call difficult, but like with most aspects of modding it's certainly time consuming to do well. I look back at this map (my first venture into mapping) and I cant say I'm happy with it; hence my intention to start fresh! I've learnt a lot since doing the Westeros map and now aim to wipe the slate clean and provide an even better result for Awoiaf. :D I'll provide updates here on the Moddb page as progress is made on the new map(s) but progress will be slow on the new maps.
(Credits to Inarus for the Settlement Models shown above, he does great work when not being lazy)
Other members of the team may provide articles to show off anything they wish to show off, so keep an eye out for those. A Dream of Spring releases soon so watch for that too and don't forget that our earliest version of A Clash of Kings is available for the public right now at Sevenrealms.co.uk
Thanks for reading. See you next time.
