CartoZed is a little tool that can draw 2d topdown images from lotheader/lotpack data. It should work for custom maps as well.

The new version also has the option to export isometric renders of cells.


Most recent version:

CartoZed 1.2 (Full) || CartoZed 1.2 (Update)


Older versions:

CartoZed 1.1






Fixed bug causing export to iso not to work with certain path values, also memory issue.


Complete rework


Initial version






Use browse to select a mapdata folder containing lotheader and lotpack files.

Optionally select a different theme to render the 2D map with.




Hit draw, this will render the map and display a preview version on screen (note the preview is a low resolution render, the actual output will be high res)




Optionally you can make a selection of cells, if you define a selection this will affect the Save/Export options below.




'Save as 2D PNG' allows to save the map render fully or a selection of it.




'Export isometric' allows to save iso metric renders, it will create a file for each cell (300x300) tiles. Note that the selection tool in the program also selects on a cell basis.

Also note that this is not very fast, rendering the entire map may take a while. And will consume a fair amount of memory/diskspace as well.

Thanks, i shared some screenshots now... this mod have language support.




Mate, we get so many players on our Redboid server asking if there is a map. We would certainly add this. You should definitely continue this, using your original art or the new tool images. Either would be great!

I'm having some problems using it. When I load the files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ProjectZomboid\media\maps\challengemaps\KnoxCounty I just get a white file. What am I doing wrong. A how to would be very useful in the documentation.

Yep, currently it doesn't seem to play well with the non-default maps. :D

Isn't that the default map? Then where is it?

EDIT: I found the right files in the Muldraugh, KY folder instead of challengemaps. Whoops.
