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.

Absolutely beautiful! I was actually thinking of mapping out the Spyro universe when I came across this, and this is much better than I ever could have made. I imagined the Dragon Realms to be along a big sea, but putting them on a continent with a central mountain range explains the odd mountainous and/or snowy levels like Ice Cavern, which seemed to not fit in with Peace Keepers at all.

If you still want criticism... Town Square is surrounded by mountains, so maybe put it closer to (or extend) the mountain range. I also think it's kinda weird Magic Crafters completely bisects the continent, and that Gnasty's World is so far away from the other worlds. I see Gnorc Cove and Twilight Harbor as being big port cities, and it doesn't seem fitting for them to be out in the middle of the ocean. I'd move Crystal Flight to the inlet near Sunny Flight and put Gnasty's World to the north of Magic Crafters. This would also help explain Beast Makers' polluted state - pollution from the neighboring, industrialized Dragon Junkyard would have floated to it.

Oh wow, that would explain the flight world in Beast Makers, too.

I honestly wish I could address more of your points, but it's been so long since I did this, I can't... really remember a lot of stuff. However, they all seem like totally good additions, and if I ever do a second version, I will consider all these points carefully.

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.
TastesLikeAnya Featured By Owner May 5, 2013   Artist
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.
