Re: Map edges, how can they be fixed?

I have two suggestions about maps , 1. Implement a random map generation system ( shared lua file between players and shared random seed ) like on age of mythology
2. to generate map outside playable bounds use some fractal algorithm

Re: New mapconv that works flawlessy on linux

I've tweaked compression so that it creates no artifacts at all, tiles that are equal 100% even if compression is disabled they are reused so even with compression off you match 100% equal tiles. Ok what about compression on, you say no artifacts but at high compression how do you avoid that? I've ...

Re: New mapconv that works flawlessy on linux

I meant a package for your mapconv. The inital debianization is done and it's currently waiting to be built on launchpad: https://launchpad.net/~koshi/+archive/ppa/+packages If someone wants to try it right now, here's a amd64 build from my desktop box: http://filebin.springlobby.info/mapconv-ng_0....

Re: New mapconv that works flawlessy on linux

If you do it it's ok , cause i didn't like wx last time i used it, otherwise i'll do it with Qt , the map compiler can be used as library too , if you want i can add function to pass raw data as image directly

Re: New mapconv that works flawlessy on linux

Don't use compression when compiling maps. I won't bother to explain why, just please understand that it's a fairly known unwritten rule among the experienced mappers here. Also, you sir are awesome.

Re: New mapconv that works flawlessy on linux

Done
to add features use -features [featurefile] parameter
Feature file is a simple text file , example following:
Name XPos YPos ZPos Orientation(Degrees)

Code: Select all

Rock1 6000 -500000 3000 0
Rock2 4000 200 1000 180
Rock1 will be placed on terrain surface
Rock2 will be placed @ 200
