Dragon Quest VIII Overworld Map Complete
This was a massive undertaking for King Zenith to undertake but he was able to gather full resolution overworld map from Dragon Quest VIII PS2. The full resolution map is huge, read more below. Great work.

Hi guys,

I am so happy to be "done" this project that I couldn't resist putting the news in a new topic instead of the existing one. Anyway, the new Dragon Quest 8 Overworld map is finally complete! Here is a massively scaled down overview of the finished product:


The full resolution version weighs in at 110MB in size as a loss-less compressed PNG image. Dimensions are 14,300 x 10,750.

You can download this map at various different resolutions here:

Full Resolution Map (110 MB)
50% Resolution Map (31 MB)
25% Resolution Map (8 MB)

I came really, really close to burning out on this, but the advantage of sinking so much time into it is that I couldn't let all those hours go to waste by not finishing it. Big thank you to sk8erpunq for helping me overcome the technical hurdles with auto-piloting Empyrea's trajectory as she flew over the terrain collecting screenshots for me at the proper perspective angle. There is absolutely no way this would have worked if I had to manually fly that bird.

Ok, that's all. Time to start marking it up with treasures and notorious monster locations.

Oh, and for anyone curious about how this map was made, you can check out my other topic on the subject.

Monster Wiki

Thanks to AerynB for scouring all the monster information in the database on the Den cleaning it up and suggesting the idea for a Monster Wiki that lists all the monster that are related.


She added the Japanese name to each monster entry in the database and when you pick a monster from the Alphabetical list



It will return the monsters that all match that Japanese name from the Monster book that she has.



That way you can see the sprite progression over the years, as which games they appeared in and the names, sorted by Japanese release date.


Or like with the Walking Corpse you can see the name changed from Hork in the later years.

Dragon Quest II Android/iOS - Monster List



Thanks to AerynB for the list of monsters and images from which I cropped out the sprites. I just cropped them for now since the images are anti-aliased so to get a clean image of the monster is ab bit tough.
