Denis Loubet Releases the Ultima 9 Map Art on Patreon


Former Origin Systems artist Denis Loubet released a high-resolution version of the Ultima 9 map artwork on his Patreon page today:

Christmas is early this year!

Here is the image used for the cloth map in Ultima IX:Ascension at 50% resolution. Even reduced by half, the attached full map is big enough for screen-saver purposes. It’s all there, the docks of Buccaneer’s Den, the glowing force-field around the Lycaeum, even the virtue symbols in the border.

This was done way back in 1999, in an old version of Photoshop, using a lot of paths, bitmaps, and layers. Countless hours went into this on a tight deadline, and now it’s here for you to download and enjoy! 🙂

For now, you can download the map — at 2250×2250 px resolution — directly from Patreon. At some point, I’ll probably add a copy to the Ultima 9 subdomain, but not right now.
