Well, we don't have an unlabeled map yet, but this is pretty rough stuff as I take it you got this straigth from an editor or map extractor?



At the very least, I would assemble the various parts together to form one big map, and I don't like the map doesn't have many borders. By that, I mean that when actually playing the game, on the sides you can sometimes see more mountains or more water while on these maps, in several areas it stops at the furthest point you can travel to, the most noticeable being in Death Mountain on the left side.



I find that most of the time, automated or extracted maps need a minimum of work before they can be acceptable (unless whoever coded the utility or extractor is a genius). Are you willing to at least give it a try, because as is, I feel this is not up to par for the site.

I have made a complete unlabeled overworld map for Zelda II.  However I did not post it to VGmaps since there was one with labels.  If you want the unlabeled on for VGmaps in addition to the labeled one that is already here let me know and I will submit it.  Here is a link to the map:

I would personally much prefer to have this unlabeled map on the site, as I've always preferred "beauty shots" to labeled ones. Please submit it.

Personally, I like both for RPG maps like this. They're very useful when labeled, and cool to look at when unlabeled.
