Re: Arena / Tamriel Rebuilt... in Daggerfall!

I'm browsing through the various Tamriel maps present online to decide which one to use as a reference. Do you guys have any idea? A favorite one?
I have an idea to keep an image of Tamriel under the main panel of the world editor, so to sort of "build" over it, and I'd like a map as detailed as possible; on top of that I wouldn't want to change the map after the work as started.
Well, if you have any suggestions, those are welcome. A political map, with main cities, borders and some major landmark would be great.

Edit: I forgot, I'd prefer a map that show the continent political status pre-warp, and as close to TES2 lore as possible.

If you want a map that matches more with Daggerfall, then perhaps you can use the Arena map:

(this map is too large to post directly on this forum, but it’s a very detailed Arena map

I think a really detailed map of tamriel can be found here:
https://rpnexus.boards.net/thread/1/tam ... old-empire
But it is not really a political map, but marks some important locations.
Some good height maps can be found with this Skyrim mod
https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/52675/
I also agree that the Arena map would be a good start as well.

As for a political map I'm not sure I have seen one. They tend to be 4th Era or later 3rd. I think there would be a high degree of artistic lisence. The best political map I found for slightly later (4E 4) is:

Thanks Werewolf, I originally thought about the Arena Tamriel map, but the only one I found were those from UESP, that are sincerely lacking regarding resolution. The one you linked is really good.

Thanks for the maps Sappho, but more than anything else thanks for the link to the heightmaps, didn't know anything like that existed. They're gonna be really useful when I get to that point.

Yeah that map I linked is good. It’s basically like Arena’s map but is much higher res, so it fits Daggerfall. How’s the project going by the way?

Question: Has anyone remade the map of tamriel according to the scale of the playable area within each game? This would mean that daggerfall is 90% of tamriel. Ha!

A single region in Daggerfall is bigger then Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim combined

Daggerfall with its 1:1 scale is about 1/32 of the total area of Tamriel. Each of the sequel games are a little bigger than one city in Daggerfall.
