Map Marker Icons
I've been creating my own custom annotated map on the side both as a hobby and for personal use. In the process, I have made custom Morrowind themed map markers and after seeing the work here, decided to offer them up for use with the online map, if you so choose. As I said, they are designed to fit the Morrowind theme. Many are borrowed from the game, some are borrowed from Oblivion, some are made with the hopes that they will be intuitive. I made a lot of them to cover all the bases and make the map as thorough as possible. I've broken them down into categories:
These are geographical locations found across the province; naturally occurring or so infused with the land, it’s obvious to group them here.
|Landmark||As general as Vvardenfell or Sea of Ghosts, as specific as Khartag Point or River Samsi.|
|Monument||From the Shrine of Azura to the Earth Stone.|
These are the guild related locations that have free standing, independent locations visible when zoomed into their relative cities and towns. These were taken from the in game signs where available.
The different types of mines found on Vvardenfell. Due to the size of the icon, it is difficult to represent these types and still convey that the location is indeed a mine. Therefore it may be advisable to simply use the default mine icon for each type.
These are the miscellaneous things that can be found throughout the wilderness such as persistent corpses, creature spawn points, and hidden loot. More diversity may be created where necessary.
The various man or mer made ruins found across the land.
The various settlement types and structures.
The different services found in each settlement. The icons were taken from the shop’s sign where applicable. More diversity may be created as needed.
The four non-guild ways to travel around Morrowind.
• Create alternates for icons that don't work.
• Desaturate a few of the icons that are too golden looking.
• Create new icons for:
•Telvanni Tower(Under Settlements) •Propylon Chamber (Under Transportation) •Outpost (Under Settlements) •Guard Tower (Under Settlements)
