Deliverance historical maps

Recommended Posts

For all you archaeologists, veterans and nostalgics: I dug into my old files and records and found some old community maps.

 

Deliverance was born more than 7 years ago, on the 7th September 2011. The maps I uncovered nicely show the evolution of our lovely island over the years. Have fun!

Thank you very much. That's June 2016, right? (I'll never get used to the US way of writing dates, lol)

If you look at the previous posts in this thread you'll see that I coudn't find a map for 2016 in my records. Nicrolis was able to help out and provided the "June 2016" version. Hence the acknowledgement :) (It has nothing to do with previous map authors or map managers, who deserve our thanks nonetheless!)

When cleaning up my desk today I found a real gem! I thought the oldest Deli map we have is from November 2011 - BUT I found a paper copy of the very first map made by Darkmalice, probably in late September 2011. Please note how inaccurate the coastlines were and how small the number of deeds was in those first days!

 

Here it is:

I like how there is an ad for someone buying referrals on that map.

The Sanctuary was created on day 1! There she be south of Green Dog with my nearest neighbor east, New Darkhold by Validate a week or so later. Some more were created on the north side of Green Dog too around this time and I see the north shore with none listed that were created on server opening by those who sailed over.

 

A pretty crude map yes but a valiant effort to travel all around the coast to get an impression of the newest unknown lands created within the game after Independence. A fun and exciting time to be around to see the server develop from those untouched landscapes, with many areas filled with trees to squeeze through to travel slowly to points beyond.

I just *have* to share this.

 

I found a very old forum post (in another forum) with this self-made map of center/southeast Deli, dated September 16, 2011:

ooh look at that, east coast. Vulcan Retreat used to be called New Ultimarus, years later i renamed Indigus (my deed, around the corner), to Trinsic.
how canny
Not entirely sure why i chose to honour ultima when i renamed the deed, the impulse was almost fleeting.
my processing was mostly spent on deciding which town to name it after.
