Well as many of you know I have spent the majority of my time here mapping and really just creating sprites which might be of use to an OOT2D project (the reason most of the oldschool members came here in the first place). I have been looking at the map which I now have, with all of the areas which I have created and come to the conclusion I am over half way through. What with the holidays starting now and me having nothing to do, I thought I might make a project out of it and see what I could get done.
I have created this with several things in mind, firstly the maps must be as true to the original as possible. Secondly they must fit into the LTTP / FSA style, and thirdly they must piece together correctly (even though the original OOT map failed at this).
So, what do I have and need to do? Firstly, I am only concentrating on outdoor areas for now, so heres the list:Kokiri ForestLost WoodsSacred Forest MeadowHyrule FieldLon Lon RanchCastle MarketHyrule CastleHyrule Castle CourtyardKakariko VillageKakariko GraveyardDeath Mountain TrailZoras RiverZoras FountainLake Hylia and Fishing Pond

- Needs new sprites, but mapping finished.
This means that I have now complete my project! I have completed all 20 areas and I am happier than can be! To give an idea of how all of this comes together, see this:
Some of the links went down. I have replaced them. Hopefully these will last a little better.
I'm still going to keep working on sprite updates and layout updates so keep the criticism coming so I can improve this further!
I am opening this project to the public. I want anyone who can to submit sprite suggestions to replace what I already have. I will of course ultimately be deciding which sprites get into the project itself. I also welcome suggestions to re-do any areas in ways which might make them more playable. For now I am not looking for any new areas (such as inside dungeons) as I am in the process of mapping those out myself.
If anyone fancies making some sprites for the inside of the Greak Deku Tree for me I would be most impressed. I have already mapped the entire area out, I just lack the sprites for it.
I am going to be very busy with exams this week and the next two. So I will only be posting big updates here around once a week. I'm sure I can pick up again after that.
The section below is a list of credits to people who have contributed to the project and whose sprites I have either added, or will be adding to the project itself.Credits for Community Sprites:
