Hello,

I've attached the first look of how the mapping is going with Randian. I'm open to suggestions :)

Kinda tough to make out, but from what I can see it looks really good.

Does each marker on the map represent a room?
Are the "dark grey" spaces fill-in characters for an empty room?
Does the "#" represent a wall?
Why is the map so far to the right?
Just a guess here, but given the size, scope, and colour detail, I'm gonna guess that's about 12-13kb of data per look_at_room(). If you have a decent pbase that is currently sprinting across the world, you could be uploading MBs of data per second... could lag the server.
Have you considered to possibility of using MSDP or ATCP to do something with graphics, or have the map self-updating similar to what KaVir, and others of have done?

It's actually going to be better, now that I have a world generator. :)

Alright with the new map generator, I'll have a better look map with more details. I do know using the map generator one zone so far is about 9,000 rooms. That will allow me to have a ton of detail. One thing I am worried about is running out of vnums. I do plan to modify asciimap.c at some point. I will post when I have this first city remade.

Note: I will post the world_make.c if anyone is interested.

Sorry for resurrecting this, but is that world_make.c a map generator? If so, I'm very interested! Thanks!

Yes it is. I've posted the snippet in the forum.
