Warning: this link sent me to a lot of info about how cool megaupload is, not to the pic itself. Probably should first register, yadayada. I didn't. You may.


Wait for 45 seconds and the download link will appear. No registration required, although you'll get some ad popups.

What he said. Click on "free download", wait 45 seconds.... enter in the code, then the download should start.

you do not need be a member to download anything.


You do have to be a member to upload.

Wow, the maps are awesome. Thanks for all your work. I will definitely be using these for Wings of War.

How did you do the hex map overlay?

Thanks!
As for the hex tiles... the whole precess had to be completely automated so I wrote a perl script that for each A4 'tile' produced a simple .svg file consisting of a background tile image and a half-transparent hex overly. Next, the script used a free program inkscape to 'render' the .svg file and thus produce the final image.
All in all, extremely simple

I printed it out on two strips, and laminated it for wings of war also.

Great stuff, Domjan! I want to print off a map for my Wings of War games.
Thanks for the resource to do so.

We are very lucky to have Domjan doing such a great job with this. I'm not getting too extreme with my map, just printed out onto heavy paper at home and put it under the vinyl cover on my table. Low cost and plenty effective!

Sorry to up this years later,
but the http://student.fizika.org/ website doesn't respond anymore.

I couldn't find these files (in the wings of war download section for example where i really think they should be, these maps looks great for that kind of game)

My question:
has anybody still got these maps ? and could they re-upload them somewhere ?

Follow this link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=D73ZRRBN

Wait 45 seconds (you are meant to read the advertising, but that's what tabbed browsers are for), and then you can download the file as a .zip

thanks for the link

(I did actually find the link before posting the above message: i must say it's really a nice map)

I was wondering about the other maps that the guy had been done ... anybody got those stored in a folder somewhere ?!

I don't, but i know how to do you own...
Search for "Google Map Buddy". Don't hit the homepage though, he was asked to take it down. But there are several mirrors all around. There is also a soft called Easy Google Maps Downloader, but it is only free for zoom levels 1-12. If you want highres images you have to pay 50$. GMB is free...
Have a nice one

A person with the same name has a Picasa gallery. It appears to be the same guy (nationality etc all match).
I'm not going to post an email address here, but his gmail isn't hard to find.
Good luck.

Printed the England map in a recent Zazzle poster sale (60% off). Took me 2 hours of fiddling with the files (program memory–related delays) to merge it all manually, but it was completely worth it:


One big poster (for $20!), two big sheets of plexiglas (perspex). It's beautiful.

I'll put up a Mediafire link to the merged file for those who are interested.

Get a good spot over a desert and ask the OP to create one for you.

The links to student.fizika.org are working, BTW, while megaupload is gone. Could the script for the original program to construct the maps be released, too? I'm pretty sure that I easily fulfill the requirements.

Now is the time to buy! Zazzle is having (yet) another 60%-off poster sale this weekend, code GRADWALLGIFT . That will drop the price of a poster this size (56.55"×40") to $20.26, plus shipping.

Yes, the merged file. The others are available already. It's just the merging that can be difficult on many people's computers.
