    www.CalypsoMap.com



    Hi!

    I've been checking out the excellent work that people like CZ Jane CZ have been doing to try and map out Calypso (truly excellent work guys), and I did find the maps incredibly useful. The only problem seemed to be the fixed format of the map - there's just too much information to squeeze onto that map, and it is prone to going out of date.

    Therefore as as part of my wish to try and give back to the community I have decided to try and build an interactive map of Calypso that will allow people to find the location of Teleporters, Land Areas, Mobs, Shared Loot Mobs, Outposts, Mission Brokers, Landmarks, Points of Interest, etc for all to use.

    The website can be accessed via www.CalypsoMap.com.

    It's still in the very early stages of development, so a lot of the features haven't been added yet - but especially as many of us are stuck inside at the moment I'm hoping to get this up to scratch pretty quickly.

    If you have any thoughts or feature suggestions, or if you would like to help contribute to the development of the map, please post below or contact me in-game.


    Society

    As a side to this, I know how important it was for me to have a good, active and friendly society when I first started Entropia all those years ago. Without that friendship, I would never have gotten past the steep learning curve and I would have left shortly after starting like so many new players do.

    In order to try and help new players as I was helped, I have set up an in-game Society called www.CalypsoMap.com that is mainly for newer or returning players (but anyone who is active and friendly is welcome). Our main activities include:

    • Exploration and helping keep the map up to date
    • Meeting new friends
    • Doing old-school TP runs
    • Doing low-level hunting and other team events


    If you're interested in joining or would like to know more, please feel free to get in touch.

    Nice initiative.

    Maybe you could overlay with the mob locations:

    Hi fred!

    Yep, I'm on with adding them now. Eudoria will be done first (probably this week) - as it was easier due to defined Land Areas.

    The map you've posted is excellent, but it's a few years old so I'm just doing some scoping to check how much of it is still correct before I start adding locations.

    Cheers!

    It's pretty accurate from my experience - sure it's old, but way better than anything we have.
    Maybe a few spawns here and there and event mobs obviously.

    Looking nice so far.

    I love the increased Zoom on it.

    Would it be possible to make zoom focus where the cursor is ?

    Very nice work, I love it

    I can see myself using this soon instead of the Calypso Explorer map, once you add the mobs to it

    Old school TP runs! We definitely need some more of this type of activity to build the community + rep
