You know, the ones that show up when you zoom out to the map while playing? I took a gander at some of the icon sets here at MTS, but they seem to only cover thoughtbubble and moodlet rabble.

I specifically want these so I can key my own large scale photomerged maps of neighbourhoods in photoshop, so I'm OK with any format (dds, png, ico, etc.) I am also more interested in the ones that come from EPs, especially Late Night.

I have thought about cropping them out from in-game screenshots or drudging through the fullbuild package files in s3pe, but would prefer that as a last resort.

The drudgery method is not such drudgery as you presume. The basegame icons are in the FullBuild0, they are IMAG, titled like "maptag_blah_blah". Easy to find.

Well, I did drudged through s3pe and then Fireworks to get them as they appear in-game. :)
I have the RabbitHole maptags done as I was working on documenting it for the Wiki. You can grab them (from the wiki) after I upload it, if you want. But most likely not until the weekend.

You're on your own for the Community/Professions Lots, though. But at least half the work is done, eh?

If you want them as a zipped file, sent me a PM with somewhere I can send them to, or I can upload the 7z to a filesharing site, I guess. Saves time from having to download one-by-one?
They are 64x64 pngs.
I suppose if there's a widespread request for said icons, I can even upload them here to the Downloads area...
