Realistic Spyro 1 Map by TastesLikeAnya Realistic Spyro 1 Map by TastesLikeAnya
Unleashing my inner geek, and exercising my love of maps, I decided to make this: The most accurate map possible of the Dragon Worlds for Insomniac's first Spyro game. Because really, who doesn't want a totally awesome Spyro RPG-esque remake? Haha, don't answer that.

I really can't stress that the locations on the map are not arbitrarily placed. Months of research went into studying the game to try and create a map that represents, as accurately as possible, the levels just as they are depicted in the game.

Some of the things I researched include:

Location of the sun
Heavenly bodies
Geology of formations in the backgrounds
Biology of Dragons

I was originally intending to do all three games, but I found myself having the most fun working out the Spyro 1 map. I also don't have much time with my film and all, so maybe another time.

Also, I want this map to be totally accurate, so if you spot anything you feel isn't right, feel free to comment.

I hate to say but with dream weavers it should be broken apart since there are islands that float that's all I gotta say and also this is a good piece

This is awesome! I love Spyro and I love maps, so when my friend told me about this map, I had to find it. Amazing work:)

Hey, have you done maps for Spyro 2 and 3 yet? Cause if you did, it would be awesome.

Nah, I was too busy with my film. I was planning on doing them after I finished it, but the worlds in Spyro 2 and 3 seemed far less lore based, and were nowhere near as fun to make as this map, unfortunately. So I don't think I'll ever do them. But who knows.

This is amazing! Love it when people go way over the top with research just for accuracy (I do it too). Awesome job, Insomniac would be proud.

You did a phenomenal job with this — I had always wanted to map the Dragon Worlds years ago, but this is really good
