    Is it possible that the file contents got mixed up? i rechecked and compared timestamps, seems ALL versions of the mod have the crumpled edition of metromap.dds.. (if that's on purpose, don't bother, "fixed" it myself already ;) )

    I placed the two dds files in the Fallout 3\Data\textures\architecture\urban folder, but I'm not seeing them, only the original versions. Any ideas?

      Late reply, but did you turn Archive Invalidation on and off in NMM? Or if you insist on doing it manually, do you have ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated installed?

    It would be so hilarious if I'd find a metro map of my hometown with a "Flooded Metro" entry :D
    Looks good.

      Yeah I know some names don't make sense in a pre-war context but otherwise the map would be pretty useless gameplay-wise :)

      Just I thought I had, if you want to make the map make more sense pre-war wise, you could name those stations something like 'Unfinished line' or some other name, then have writing over it that has the gameplay-wise name that you have. Like as if someone wrote with a marker over it to help keep others safe from the dangers, which it has been awhile, but I'm petty sure Reilly's angers was one such group that was trying to make D.C. safer for people.

      At any rate, this looks awesome, thank you!

      I thought of doing that but since I don't know which font Xiempie used when creating the original picture, I would have to manually cut and paste every single letter and I'm too lazy to do that :D (plus it would look real bad).

    Forgive my newbness type question, but is there another way to see the map other than these billboards? Most of the time when I need to see the map, I am not near any of these. Is there a "pocket" version of the map, sorta like the Chicago metra version I carried in my pocket when I lived there ;)

      Hey there!

      Unfortunately, there is no such item in the game :(
      Your best bet would be to print the map or have it opened on a second screen (that's what I do).

    Thanks for this. It's finally done correctly. I'm getting ready to start a LP of Fallout 3 and the timing couldn't be more perfect. Cheers!!!

    I just wanna say thanks for making this mod! Traversing the DC Ruins through the Metro Stations has never been easier. Son of a *censored* this is such a good map

    I thought I downloaded this like 6 months ago. The faded version I guess? Meh

      Nope you did not :)

      Although both my and smellyape's textures are based on the same picture they're not identical...
      His goes for a way more worn-out look, to the point that you can hardly make out some of the names while mine tries to stay legible, arguably to the cost of some realism. Mine also has the line names and key included on the bottom.

      I guess it's a matter of taste but choice can't be a bad thing right? ^^

      I'm so confused now.

      I do like the key at the bottom of the map. I'll try this one out.

    As requested by vegaswanderer, I've added an optional more faded, yellowed and crumpled version of the map.

    I've also added the option to use the original, not *too* dirty, texture for the lightbox and the worn-out and creased texture for the map used on bus stops and such.
    Makes sense to me that the maps used underground aged a bit better than their outdoors counterparts :)
