Update: January 15, '14
After a 2+ year hiatus, I'm back—and [finally] working on the next revision of this map (and some requests). There've been a lot of suggestions and fixes messaged to me every which way. Rest assured, any contradictions with canon I'll fix. However, I'll be departing a little from the canon map, largely out of disappointment. I'm also not fond of the underlying "Equestria-as-America" implication. Sadly, I have to remind myself the show isn't targeted at my age group. So, expect me to impress a bit more of my vision into the new map, which has a stronger steampunk flavor. 

All that said, I started a tumblr for the story world behind the map, which I've neglected. Fortunately, the talented :iconstupidyou3: offered to help me run the comic I had intended to start there, so I'm going to kick some life into this thing again. It will prelude the story, and give me some time to get my bearings.

So, sorry for the wait and wish me luck!

Want to us my map for a fic/video/etc?
You don't need to ask my permission. If you'd like to use the map for anything non-commercial, you may. Let me know though, I love seeing what people do with it.

See how it's evolved:
* Revision #5
* First revision

Three problems, one, this is a little too off from canon map, two and three, where's Saddle Arabia and the crystal empire?

Look how long ago this was made though.

Hey I like your map, one question. Where is the Crystal Empire suppose to be? not that it especially matters but that was just the one place I wanted to find.

Hmm... now I'm torn...

So, I've got a dilemma. I've been using this map as a basis for one of my stories, but it's not pony-related, and I want to publish my work, but I don't know if it's okay to use this map for that purpose. Note: I'm not reproducing the map, just using it as a reference, with slight changes.

Don't hold back on my account. Feel free to use it!
EbonyManta Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2014
Thank you so much! This is such a wonderful map, and it inspired me to create a world, and it means a lot to me to be able to use it. Best part is, there's a lot of terra incognita I can fill in with my own stuff.

I'm glad it can be useful to you :D I've only just gotten back into the flow of things, so hopefully the remake of this map isn't too far behind.

Though, I'm curious. Do tell me more about your publication (perhaps in a DA Note?) — I'd love to see what you've done with it.
EbonyManta Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2014
I hope the remake is coming along smoothly. I'll still be using this version of the map, of course, but I'll be eager to see the new version.

As for my work... heh, where do I start?
