Remember when game companies were not so cheap and we got cloth maps for our games?

Anyone know what the map is made of in the $150 collectors edition?

I'm sure if I searched my attic I could find one from Ultima III...or was it IV?

I don't know what the map is made of for sure. However, the map that BioWare put in Dragon Age's Collector's Edition was a legit map with frayed edges and everything. Since it's the same company, I'd be surprised if we got a lame paper map with this.

Mate I do not believe there is a map.

There are too many planets and new planets will be available all the time.

Yes I remember the old BG2 maps with cloth if I remember, I also believe Skyrim and Oblivion both came with cloth maps for collectors editions.

I am guessing there will be an SWTOR atlas out before too long or it may be bundled into the prima guide...

*YAWN*

Here is hoping I get access tomorrow!

Was not cloth. It was slightly better than thin paper.

The map looked paper in the unboxing video.

And I have my Ultima V cloth map right here on my desk.

It's laminated paper in my CE.

Must say the map disappointed me, but then a map for a game with several planets is meh anyway. Still have my Ultima Online cloth map, now that one was useful.

P.S.: I'm still satisfied with the CE though, just not the map.

They should have made it one of those laser pointer things that you can project on a wall in the dark. Now that would have been cool.

Yeah! or a holocom that displayed interactive planetary maps in the palm of your hand. I mean, really, this is Star Wars..... cloth maps



Too bad technology isn't there yet.
Hire website designers that actually have had real life experience in the job.
Then let me know so I can return to the forum.
