Version 2 of my Elven Map mod (v1.0 went by the name "Elven Cartographers"). This mod changes the default brown map to a full colour map with a slightly "elven" feel to it, accurately detailing all the changes in landscape type across the whole of Cyrodiil.

Also included are new full colour 3-D map icons (including a better door icon for the local map), as well as a more detailed "You Are Here" arrow marker and quest markers.

Changes since v1.0 :

+ Map has been completely re-coloured and reworked. All colours are now more vivid and accurate.

+ Elven texture toned down in some areas (and enhanced in others) to give more variation.

+ Map names are now less distorted and are easier to read.

+ Mapped out the proper transition regions between different land types. Map now accurately reflects the true extent of the mountain ranges, grass lands, golden plains and so on.

+ New 3-D coloured map icons; more varied and less obtrusive than the originals. Unique colours for each icon make for easier navigation.

+ Used different .dds format to avoid blurring and loss of colour fidelity due to in-game resizing (the files are now a bit larger but I felt the quality gain was worth the size trade-off).
