Press kit for web tools, map animations, videos etc...

Recommended Posts

Dear OWI, dear @Gatzby,

 

I think it would be a great idea to get some kind of Youtuber/Modding/Website presskit that includes all your map icons and map layers(maybe even one with all village names) so you can easier create animations or build web map tools etc. You already publish most of this information in your WIKI but most of the graphics are scattered all around the place and it wouldn't be much of a hassle to just offer them compressed in one download.

 

This process could also be very well automated by your team so it just takes someone a few hours to add an automated process into your pipeline.

 

Just a minor prio suggestion on your way to 1.0. What do you think?

 

Bye,

Heh, it's likely a more manual process than you might suspect, but it's likely we can get some more helpful media out. Maps seem like an easy win. (Most of the information on the wiki is extracted and provided by volunteers, not pulled directly from the game.)

 

It's worth noting that you have access to all of that simply by installing the SDK and pulling them out and may actually save you some time/bandwidth in the long-run. It looks like each minimap image is 65 megs and there are a few for each map. SDK updates are almost always going to be more recent than the website. =)

 

There's a 600+ mb zip with most of them here, freshly uploaded. Which is chunky, so we'll see if we can get something a bit more web-friendly in the future.

Awesome! Thank you @Gatzby :-)

 

I haven't looked at the SDK yet, but after your hint, will do for sure. Wanted to try it out anyway since v13 is now out.

 

Greetings from Vienna,
