    more maps coming up

    I finally started to work on a project i wanted to do for a long time.

    A searchable dynamic editable map of cerilia linked to the wiki.

    its a map with a dynamic sidebar which display all the marker within the current view.
    The names are all linked to their wiki page and when clicked on it centers to the place.
    I am using 4 zoom levels. And each zoom level has its own set of markers.

    lvl 1 : the emblem of the 5 regions
    lvl 2 : Landed Domains (countries)
    lvl 3 : Provinces and landmarks (maybe i will put capitals/castles here as well)
    lvl 4 : towns, villages, NPO's, ruins

    The map will be editable, so everyone can add a marker, select its type, fill in a few details and set to go.

    I will post some screenshots later this coming weekend.

    some early screenshots

    I managed to code it into the Vbulletin framework, and seems to work as a charm

    so the finetuning can start!

    TODO:
    create icons for all types:
    provinces/domains (think i can grab the heralds from the wikiDB for that), towns, cities, landmarks, ruins, NPC's, etc

    dynamic DIVs for the sidebar, so it shows the icon, name, region and wikipage

    AddCustomMarker script, so everyone can add locations

    as promised, a screenshot! (or two actually)... its an early stage, so still needs some styling!

    I am making fast progress... only SWOTR beta starts in 15 min.. so i will be busy the rest of the day

    About your wish/ nice to have: can it display holding lvls

    how exactly do you have that in mind?

    Click on the domain, and it displays the holdings?

    Or an Holding icon in each province with their level? (like in the gorgons alliance game)

    I am currently designing it so that every marker can have a statblock linked.
    I recently creaded the Wiki addition for statblocks, and by simply entering the statblock name it will render the statblock in the info window.
    For domains it will be the sidebar that are on the wikipages now

    But when you create a Holding marker, you could also link that to a domain table (which are normally displayed at the bottom of a domain page in the wiki.


    just spam me with your ideas!

    Ok some early ideas:

    1. Holding Levels.
    2. A picture and stat block for the ruler of those domains
    3. A notes section to add notes to a ruler

    When a marker is created (or edited) you can specify a wikipage (name of any wikipage) AND to a statblock (which will show as the infowindow when you click on the marker)

    The map project is for 90% finished!

    Got some little fine tuning to do, plus some icon making so every kind of maptype has its own icon

    below are 3 new screenshots
