Hamish Posted January 10, 2009 Report Share Posted January 10, 2009 While programming the (soon to be released) order entry program, several people have inquired if it was possible to use the map in programs. Either to display controlled territory, or to build a completely graphical order entry program in which you don't issue OMG orders at all, but drag and drop army icons on a map. At the time I stated that this was well beyond my programming capabilities, but they have improved since then, so now it may be possible. What I would need before I can even start thinking about such programs though is 2 maps: A cleaned up version of the map (possibly without names, terrain and resource icons) that will display nicely at both high and low resolutions. A version of the map in which ALL provinces and sea zones have a unique color. While I am no longer a VB.NET beginner, I am not very good with graphical editing programs, so I would need someone else to make these. Additionally I would need some lists: A list of the resources in every province A list of the terrain type for every province A list of the country for which a province is considered 'home' territory A list of the X and Y coordinates of the (approximate) center of each province and sea zone on the map A reference to go with the second map, identifying each province and sea zone by color. The first 3 I could probably create myself if I have all setups available (which I don't) to analyze with a script. The last 2 would probably have to be done by anyone who creates the second map. So I guess this post comes down to the question if anyone is willing to invest time in a project that may never lead to a completed program, because I can assure you that I will try, but I can't promise any results. It's still only a hobby. Anyone willing to make these maps/lists? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
