Dark Maps works by having a black background TGA file and converted map files (Brewall and Goods).

You must use the converted map packs that is part of this download. If you try to use maps directly from Brewall or Goods, it will not work because some lines are black and those lines would be invisible against black background. I mainly converted 0,0,0 to 255,255,255 on all maps files. There are other darker colors that I would 'lighten' to be more visible against black background. I will (try) keep the maps up to date as they release their maps - I created a script to convert them and it only takes 10 seconds.

Copy both "Dark Brewall" and/or "Dark Good's Maps" folders to maps folder inside EverQuest folder. For example C:\Users\Public\Daybreak Game Company\Installed Games\EverQuest\maps\.

The cart.tga is a ui file that display black background of map window. If you already have a custom UI, then copy the cart.tga to your custom UI folder in uifiles folder. (eg C:\Users\Public\Daybreak Game Company\Installed Games\EverQuest\uifiles\YourFavoriteUI\). If that does not work - it is likely there's a custom map window that is not compatible, you can try backup and delete EQUI_MapViewWnd.xml from your custom UI folder to use the default Maps window.

If you are using default UI, you can go into C:\Users\Public\Daybreak Game Company\Installed Games\EverQuest\uifiles\ and create a new folder called darkmaps and drop the cart.tga file into that new folder and it should be the only file in the darkmaps folder. (example C:\Users\Public\Daybreak Game Company\Installed Games\EverQuest\uifiles\darkmaps\cart.tga) Then once in the game, type /loadskin then select darkmaps (make sure the Keep Your Layout is still pushed in/enabled) then click Load Skin.

You will need to select either "Dark Brewall" or "Dark Good's Map" in Map window. If your background is not black, then cart.tga file is not in right place. If you think you're missing border/wall lines, then you likely not have these map pack loaded correctly.

Note: Future maps will need to be converted - check back here for updates.

Updated 1/15/2024 - Updated Brewall 1/9/2024 and Good's Maps 1/12/2024

All credits go to Goodurden and Brewall for their hard work on these maps!

Unfortunately, that is part of the map window xml and I can't find a way to change the color of that to white. If anyone know a way, please let me know...

Range Indicator Color

Love the Dark maps.

One request though. Can the range indicator in the bottom right of the map area be changed to a different color? The black on black is impossible to read. Nice to have for spell range
