[S][W]Labelled U5 Underworld Map

28th November 2018 by Dino

Following news of 3dh's labelled Ultima 4 and 5 maps, it turns out he's also got a labelled map of the underworld in Ultima 5, in the same style as the other two. I've added this link to my Ultima 5 info page as well.

[S][W]Labelled U4 and U5 Maps

27th November 2018 by Dino

I'm a couple of months late posting this, but I'd like to share this fine work by 3dh, who created labelled, computer-generated maps of Ultima 4 and Ultima 5:

Since the locations are labelled with text overlaid on the map, you can use Ctrl+F to search. If you hover over a location, you'll get some brief information, and if you click, you'll go to the corresponding page at The Codex of Ultima Wisdom. You'll also see handy coordinates at the bottom-right indicating the tile that your cursor is on.

I've added links to these maps to the Ultima 4 and 5 info pages here at Dino's Ultima Page.

[W][R]Minima: New Ultima-Inspired Fan Project

29th October 2018 by Dino

Feneric has recently released a new game called Minima. It's inspired by Ultima and is intended to recreate the feel of playing RPGs on 8-bit Commodore computers, but it's a completely new game and is fully playable. Some people have reportedly already been able to beat it.

From the Minima GitHub page: "Minima is an adventure RPG in the style of the older Ultima games as played on the Commodore 8-bit computers. Just like the original Ultima games, it includes a world view, enterable towns, and 3D dungeon displays. It also features graphics, sound effects, and music that should help one recollect those classics. More importantly, it is a fully playable (and winnable) game with its own backstory, plot, setting, and characters."
