I have long since misplaced/lost the map (you know, the big folded one) that came with the game. Yes, I know there is a map you can access whilst in the game, however, I like to have the map on my desk for reference, as it makes it possible for me to see what is nearby without pausing etc. SO, I was wondering if anyone has made or has a map for this game, be it the original one or one they made. (I would prefer one a player made, so that way it can be a full page and have a clearer/more easy to read font). If so, please post here or let me know!

Thanks!

(Uhh...50 gold to whoever can help me!?) Surprised

There's a map in the "MODS" section above. Look in "OTHER" it's called Piratesmap.jpg. I haven't downloaded it so can't tell you anything about it.

The thing is, its not a full page. And My eyesight isn't the best. (I wear contacts but with that fancyful font and small writing...it's hard to read).

You could try expanding the image on a image editor such as Paint.net or Photoshop.

True, however, I guess I should be specific and say I want a map with better fontage.

Umm... Increase the Mapsize (as I said before and if you need it) and then proceed to rewrite the words in a larger font, on top of or next to the original names on the map.
This should solve your problem as long as you can read the original names on your computer screen.

If Backlash's plan doesn't work let us know and I will try mine.

And what, if I may ask, might thy plan be, Mr. Blue?

I thought I could photo copy the original map that came with my game, rewrite the place names in larger and (hopefully) easier to read hand writing, and then send you an image of the photocopy in a PM. Or perhaps I could send two images, one of each half of the map, so that you could print the halves on 8 and1/2 by 11 and tape them together. I really don't know if it would work. I'm not technically gifted.

Whatever plan you decide is fine with me!

Did you want a map like this: http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Articles/Sources/Pirates!/Images/Map_large.jpg <- You are going to have to copy paste the link in as the "!" ends the link.
Or like this:
