Default Maxis Maps BROWSER



What's this?
It's not a map, it's a better view of your Maxis maps.



The Maxis maps' thumbnails really don't tell much.

New game? You need a mountain. You find one that looks promising - Alpinloch. Yay! Then you run it :

Creating Pets...
Creating Weather...
Creating Exotic Destinations...
Creating Hobbies...
Creating Magic...
Creating a whole load of premade families you won't keep...

Then it takes 10+ minutes for the whole process. Alpinloch is loaded. Eeek! Pretty mountains, yes, but it's all wonky! Maybe Three Lakes, from Bon Voyage, has pretty mountains and nice flat spaces. So you go again.

Creating Pets, Weather, yada-yada... Another 10+ minutes. Eeek! Three Lakes is TINY! Let's try Riverblossom Hills. So here we go again.

Creating Pets, Weather, yada-yada... Another 10+ minutes. Eeek, pretty, but half of the map is entirely in the shadows. Maybe Belladona Cove would be better? We have to try again yet once more.

Creating Pets, Weather, yada-yada... Another 10+ minutes later, it's still not it, but you've been at it for way too long, so you give up and get stuck with a mediocre map for what was supposed to be your fantastic, special new game.



...Or -NOW- maybe you don't have to!

BEFORE creating your new game, simply come here and look at the ENTIRE MAPS, and choose THE PERFECT MAP immediately. The one that will truly inspire you to shape your new world exactly how you want it to be. You can browse the pictures here, on this page, or you can download them, tidily regrouped in a Zip.




Enjoy!

Does this only view the Maxis maps, or is it possible to put in other created maps?

Hi, this is not a program, it is just a group of better pictures of the Maxis Maps.
But if you wish to add pictures of other maps (free maps people can download) I welcome them! Just add them as pictures to your post.
