Real Feast for the Senses menu

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 3.2K users
So I've seen a few threads popping up about the Feast lately, and I got to wondering, would the map really fold like that and work the way it does in-game? Well, there was only one way to test it out. Three screenshots, a few hours, and some frustration later, I had my very own Feast for the Senses menu.

Looks awesome, right? Well, remember my original question? Well, as I was making the thing, I realized that it would never fold right. Compare the following images:

The folded map:

The folded corners:

If you compare the question marks, you see that the corner version is more squished. Also, the shape of the folded area is wrong. In short, Telltale cheated (though given how complex a map like this is, I can hardly blame them) and messed with the dimensions of the folded corners. Were Guybrush in the real world, the map would've looked something like this when folded along the already present fold lines:

Compare to the in-game version:

It would take some imagination, but I imagine he could still find his way through the Flotsam jungle with it.

If anyone would like to make their own map, here are the images I used:
Front
Back

Edit: You'll want to squish the height on both images down to 560 without changing the width if you want it to fold properly.
Edit Edit: For some reason, Photobucket shrunk down the image of the inside. I could probably get a jpeg up at the original size, but I wouldn't want to sacrifice image quality. You'll still want to shrink the outside's height to 560, but you'll want to shrink the inside to 380. If you use a program that stretches the printed image to fit the paper, it should still align properly.

Edit x3: Don't use the images linked here. Use the ones in these two posts.

    If you squish the map down vertically so that the corners are at 45 degree angles, it will work. We scaled the map up in height in the game to make it more readable, even if no longer works when represented on the material plane, but the original Feast map was a real life piece of yellow notebook paper heavily scribbled upon and creased time and again by Mike Stemmle.


    PS: Nice CD-R copy of Monkey 4 you've got there! Do you have a cousin named Sven?
  • Hmm...I will absolutely have to try that. For my version, I took the folded-in corners, swapped the x and y dimensions to stretch them to the appropriate size, and then rotated and flipped to get them into position.
  • Yep, that did it. Looks perfect now. Only took me three tries, after printing it wrong the first two times and not noticing either time until it was almost entirely cut. Now I'll never have a problem getting around if I find myself stuck on Flotsam Island!

    Now, to clean up all the paper scraps on my desk...

    W-w-w-w-wwhat you just did this to (dis)prove that the ingame map was realistic enough?

    Damn you're dedicated.

    One must commend your spirit of investigation and discovery!

    A printable version of the map would make a nice DVD extra.

    Haha, that's awesome!
  • This would make a neat thing to collect, like the case files for Sam and Max. Could go nicely with some *ahem* voodoo tarot carts.

    This made me think of what would happen if the president was photographed with missle codes in big print behind him.

    With a little work, I think we can get about 17 cards (if I'm counting correctly) from game screen-shots. Though I suspect they'd have to be retouched before being printed full-size and laminated... I think this hsoudl be the OP's next project :D
