Scenario Map Maker

Sun Mar 25, 2012 11:57 am

I just remembered that the old TLA used to have a special part of the site that allowed to make Scenario Maps like in GW's scenarios. Dragging rocks and rivers on the board the way you liked was great and gave you a neat map exactly like the GW ones!

It occurred to me that this would be a very nice addition to the site for people who want to make a scenario (as forum post or as article). So, could this (or something similar) be integrated in the site again? I hope someone still has the images or even the whole part of the site.

I recall there were a couple of image files that had the elements used in said creator.
Could swear I saved them but I can't find them

I don't know, but it would be great if we could get the old map maker back, or something similar. I don't have a clue on the details of how it was made though.

it's probably possible to create using.. umm whatever the flash player runs?
Could have a word with another portuguese member to see what he thinks about it
Otherwise we could just post the images in an article for folks to build their own in Paint

I could program a windows application for that. Unfortunately it would not be browser-based, but it could still be a useful tool for people to make scenario maps with; I could make it output a .jpg or .png file.

Would people use it even though it wouldn't be browser-based?

I definitely would! I suppose it will only be a bit more effort to download a program, but the output will be the same. Also, the people that want to use it, will use it anyway, the little more effort is worth it.

aye, that would be great!

Since article submission nowadays is done by sending a pdf to an email an application that isn't browser based actually sounds like a plus.
