Don't see a link to new map..
It is replacing the old one in the Tile Mapping Service.
The Tile Mapping service isn't an endpoint itself but you can see it in use at http://avatarscircle.com/map-of-novia/ and on http://sotawiki.net/sota/Novia#Map
Edit: Belgeran is also planning on using it http://sotadb.com/ and I really hope more can make use of it!
Just a small note, you should team up with @Birko
he is creating these awesome maps for locations/scenes.
Together with your tile mapping it could be a match made in New Brittania...
Also a question, to which source do you want us to update new coordinates for R16.
I've done a topic like this one:
for a couple of releases now, and could easily add coordinates for most towns, but am unclear on where to do so to maximize gain?
Wow, his stuff is great! I will definitely reach out to him and see if he is okay with me putting his stuff in the tile service. Thanks!
I like coordinate information to go on the wiki. There is still a lot I need to do to the maps on there to add functionality and to make them user friendly. But it should turn out pretty good.
I could add something to the wiki so you could paste coordinates and see a map of available lots and you can let me know if it works for you. Would that be good?
Hey that would be lovely. Gimme a holler when you have a suggestion up.
So here is the first pass. Just have to edit the page and paste coordinates into the place where the coordinates are... I feel like I should be more descriptive there but it is all I got.
You can add others by just going to their pages like http://sotawiki.net/sota/Owl's_Head/Lots, clicking create, and pasting the contents of the one above.
Not the most user friendly for those not familiar with wikis but hopefully it gets the idea across. Let me know if you need the markers label a certain way or if the whole thing doesn't work the way you'd like or any suggestions.
This seems like a huge work!
Hope I can see the map not only SotAwiki but also in companion app!
Frankly I'm having hard time searching for vendors location...
Maps still have a long way to go on the wiki but Owl's Head has a map with a vendor on it now. Only Alvin shows up right now because he is the only one with his location entered though.
I think I have seen vendors listed elsewhere... Maybe on sotadb.com ?
Nah, I've checked sotadb.com and NPC info is yet to come. Thanks for telling anyway!
Here we go! Birko's enhanced map has a key.
Thank you!! You hit the jackpot! I may use it well.
(Still, I'd like to see your version of 'goggle map-like' New Britannia map more )
More scenes added!
Novia - PaxLair_Metro, Soltown, Grunvald Shardfall
Hidden Vale - Wynton's Folly, Wyrmsands
Need to actually get in the game to get the coordinates. Not sure when that will be...
Oh hey, has there been a newer Novia map since the one that appears here? http://sotawiki.net/sota/Novia
There was one posted in the Dev+ area I really like, but I don't know that it was ever posted outside of there.
When POTs were added, I believe Starr posted updated maps with the POTs in those threads. Let me try to find one.
