About this mod

NEW! Now includes vendors and all 440 resource deposits! (Both are optional.) A crisp and highly detailed map replacer. Tired of the faded, blurry, and pixelated in-game map? Ultimist's High Detailed Map is for you!

I've worked hard to create a new world map with increased focus, improved contrast and vivid colors, and far better detail

Ultimist's High Detailed Map PLUS



Ultimist's High Detailed Map PLUS uses a new 8k map texture (8192 x 8192 pixels). The vanilla map is 4k (4096 x 4096), and yet lacks sharpness and detail. When you zoom in to a location on the vanilla map, it starts to pixelate due to the game's basic scaling algorithm.

With this mod, your map won't look pixelated when fully zoomed in. It should also look great on 4k displays! The screenshots speak for themselves.


*** IMPORTANT NOTE! ***

There's a new method to make my mod work, and it works with Patch 8.

Change any previous Fallout76Custom.ini references for this mod  to the following:

sResourceArchive2List = SeventySix - 00UpdateMain.ba2, SeventySix - 01UpdateMain.ba2, SeventySix - 02UpdateMain.ba2, SeventySix - 03UpdateMain.ba2, SeventySix - 00UpdateStream.ba2, SeventySix - 01UpdateStream.ba2, SeventySix - 02UpdateStream.ba2, SeventySix - 03UpdateStream.ba2, SeventySix - 00UpdateTextures.ba2, SeventySix - 01UpdateTextures.ba2, SeventySix - 02UpdateTextures.ba2, SeventySix - 03UpdateTextures.ba2, SeventySix - MeshesExtra.ba2, SeventySix - GeneratedMeshes.ba2, UHDmap.ba2

Be sure and keep references here for any other mods you might be using.

Enjoy!



NEW! Version 2.5 of the map has been created by starting over with the base map from the game.

All 440 resource deposits are shown on the map (optional)

Here's a list of the resource deposits, sorted from most common to most rare, including the number of each deposit available in the game:

  • Iron: 78  - Most common
  • Copper: 60  - Very common
  • Concrete: 45  - Very common
  • Junk Pile: 37  - Very common
  • Aluminum: 33  - Somewhat common
  • Lead: 30  - Somewhat common
  • Oil: 30  - Somewhat common
  • Phosphate (Fertilizer): 23  - Somewhat rare
  • Silver: 22  - Somewhat rare
  • Acid: 20  - Somewhat rare
  • Coal: 17  - Somewhat rare
  • Gold: 16  - Very rare
  • Nuclear Material: 11  - Very rare
  • Black Titanium: 11  - Very rare
  • Crystal: 7  - Most rare
  • Total: 440

Many other changes and improvements have been made. Some of the changes include:

  • All vendor locations are indicated with different colored bottle caps (optional)
  • A new door for Vault 76.
  • All map text painstakingly re-created for better clarity.
  • Mothman Museum logo ditched in favor of the logo from the real-life Mothman Museum.
  • All road signs on the map have been re-created from scratch.
  • All map overlay elements have been re-reated from scratch.
  • Careful denoising has been used to remove the strange crosshatch noise pattern.
  • A new super-fine paper texture has been added to give the map an authentic look.
  • A brand new frame to replace the ugly, uninteresting frame in the vanilla map.
  • "Area Boundary" added to the map and map legend to subtly indicate the playable area of the map.
  • Many more subtle (and not-so-subtle) changes.

Special Versions
Upon request I've created different versions at certain levels of saturation: The default is 100% saturated, and I've included options for 33% desaturated, 67% desaturated, and 100% desaturated (grayscale or "black and white").
