Ace Combat 4 Shattered Skies Map by HandofManos Ace Combat 4 Shattered Skies Map by HandofManos
Something I was planning to do for a long time... making a map (and art in general) for games and series I like. Why Ace Combat because I like the storyline and the thought that has been given to create a 'realistic' world which is somewhat familiar yet completely different geographically to ours.

As it stands the map still needs a lot of work and it is kind of tough to find all the right names and background information so some of the mentioned places will be removed. Also have to add mountains, names (sea, bays etc) and some kind of background.

Any help with gathering information would be helpful :)

Think it is completed now :)

several reference material maps were used but most notably Lemniscus 1's map from the Electrosphere.info. All in all the information I got to fill in the blanks from what I could not retrieve from the Ace Combat game were of great help.

This map is awesome. Its the only one that: A) Get's Erusea's land mass right (most maps make Erusea too small) and B) takes into account the information revealed in Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy and the last official map. Great job!

As stated I did use some maps for reference so it is possible a few names are not 'official'. I did use reference material from several sources though

Isn't San Salvacion part of USEA?

Maybe a state falling underneath the federal government of USEA

It's San Salvación, with a graphic accent on the o.

The tenth mission is supposed to be out of the range of Stonehenge and the fourth mission as well.

Jawdrop  Wow! Great work. Makes me want to play AC04 again (I still have a copy of it).

Also would like to know if I can show this to the guys on the Ace Combat information fan site, forums.electrosphere-3.info

I'll credit you, of course.

L'd love playing this game and I still have Shattered Skies and on the verses mode I'll do the one on one and dogfight, in which one time I told my brother not to shoot and to hold his heading as we came head on where I was going to have him break right as we flew passed each other's canopy, and then while we were dogfighting I would get him to flow me down to the deck where I would then pull hard back on the stick as I fire wall the afterburners and pour some hot lead into the fighter as he flew by me where he would then go to give chase as I kept going and that's when he would slam into the deck every time as I just kept going/ And in the Dogfight mode I would play with my cosine and I would provide him cover as he went to try to get a go tone on the fight he'd engaged and I would clean up after him.

Yep and I dominated my brother in one-on-one combat by simply playing a defensive fight in which I would make him use up the 'Whole Nine Yards' of his bullets and all of his missiles before I would turn on him and toy with him like a cat toying with a mouse before going in for the kill. And when I was toying with him, I would h old missile lock on him for a few seconds before I would break off to only then re-engage him from a different angel of attack and start all over again, and when I did Stone hinge I would go vertical that once I reached the top of my climb I would stall as I went into a wing over and would then drop five heavy bombs on four of the cannons with the first or fifth one hitting the jamming system in the middle. and if I was flying a fighter and all I had were air-to-air missiles I would go Old School and fire on line of sight on enemy targets.

It is indeed an excellent storyline. If I am not mistaken they used the same technique (with the images and narrator) in Ace Combat X skies of deception (PSP).

one I actually played and beat.
Love the map, great piece.:D

I couldn't agree more, Ace Combat 4 will be forever one of my top favorites.
So...does that includes places such as Stonehenge? If so, that's located in 
what you have labeled as Delarus, kinda close to the southeast border of it.
If I'm not mistaken.
