I'm doing a project for an AI class which simply involves doing pathfinding in a 2D/2.5D overhead world. The coding will be easy, but the hard part is finding the assets in the first place. Does anyone know where I can find some images of an rts map's terrain? The only Command and Conquer or probably Starcraft etc maps should do just fine. You'd think there'd be a dozen sites with full images of maps on them, but I can't find any. I can find sites with full images of NES game backgrounds though....

It might be worth checking out this


Open source games tend to have open source assets

You can also check out the assets for Golgotha, the RTS/FPS game to be released by Crack Dot Com before they went under. They've been released under the public domain:

I think he's asking for images of entire levels. Not just the tilemaps.

If that's the case, I know I've seen them for Starcraft. One of my college roommates was a big Starcraft fan and I remember him going to sites with full sized map image previews.
