Thread: Updated ingame map - latest releases

  1. #1

    Updated ingame map - latest releases

    ** Shadowlands **

    Download latest @ https://rubi-ka.net/bitnykk

    WARNING :
    For most screens set upto 1300 pixels width definition, normal version is advised ; over 1300 pixels width definition, especially if text is hard for you to read, prefer wide version now available.

    EASY INSTALLATION :
    With any old version removed, extract archive in ao/cd_image/textures/PlanetMap ; you should obtain a new "SLmap" folder containing various files (bin, xml & txt) according to the version you downloaded.
    At this point, just open ingame worldmap once in SL by hitting "P" & then click the "i" upperleft of that window > Select Map > choose SLmap link from the list ; that's all done !11!!1
    If you have an error hitting "P", assuming you already got the map correctly installed, it's fixed by chat command : /setoption ShadowlandMapIndexFile "SLmap/SLmap.txt" or /setoption ShadowlandMapIndexFile "SLmap/SLmapWide.txt"

    VERSION & CHANGES :
    2.1 - february 2017 => Greedy Shade locations and nanos added ; few graphical elements readjusted ; several text overlaps and typos fixed ; catacombs entrance descriptions improved ; 3rd layer grid & number corrected.
    2.0 - june 2016 => many cities & buildings of every zones graphically improved ; several NPC, spot or dynas updated ; few typos, dot overlaps, border bugs, grid coords or map positions corrected ; wide version added.
    1.0 - december 2015 => playground removed ; backgrounds minimalized ; borders cleaned ; LoX enlighted ; layers optimized ; closeview repaired ; title font changed ; garden/sanct nanos refreshed ; new maps/NPC added.

    GOALS BEHIND :
    Idea is to go on from the best SL map we had so far, Onack's AoSL, and keep informations updated in minimal filesize accordingly to last AO patches.

    NEW DISTRIBUTION :
    Layer 1 => small map with minimal zone informations / Layer 2 => everything important dynabosses included / Layer 3 => nanos, quest related & various NPCs

    FUTURE CHANGES :
    Introduce new additions AO team will patch + community feedbacks & suggestions.

    OFFICIAL THREADS :
    http://www.ao-universe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5752 preferably or http://forums.anarchy-online.com/showthread.php?615312
    Please post your feedback (about the SL map only !) in any of these, what's relevant and doable will be taken in consideration.

    SPECIAL THANX :
    Onack for an inestimable work over years ; Novagen for hosting & sources ; Saavick for test & tricks ; Demoder & Cell-team for toolbox ; Alliance of Rimor for infos ; other players that helped (you know who you are).

    Awesome!

    Can you provide an .xml for https://aodevs.com/projects/ ?

    Here's an exmple xml: http://aodevs.com/projects/xml/5 and the result: http://aodevs.com/projects/view/5/atlas_of_rubi-ka

    It would be preferred if the XML was hosted somewhere, so that the site can automatically fetch the updated version whenever you make changes to it.

    Edit: Added! Site will fetch it sometime today or tomorrow.

    I've made this quickly on the model you provided https://rubi-ka.net/bitnykk/SLmap-description.xml
    Hope that makes it (or PM me if need some fixes) ?

    Since i'm here, i've warned the hoster of erratic SSL connection errors with some browsers. Hope it's fixed soon so people find the download page & link

    PS : seems it came from ECDSA Cypher Mismatch on most browser with Windows XP ; fix => use Firefox only !

    I up-loaded the new RK map from the AOFroobs site and it seems to be very well done ... however I do have a request.

    I don't have a login on AOFroobs so I will post here and hope ...

    Can the Tower site lvl ranges be posted to the map please? The old AORK map had most of them ... it is very useful information.

    Saavick is already aware of the desire for LCA information. The current design decision was to omit LCA boundaries to keep the map looking clean, but LCA information is already considered as a possible addition to the map.

    Been discussing with Saavick and, as for re-adding Dungeons map (already back in last version) and APF (prolly coming within next), the LCA details might be back soon

    PS : true that this topic should concern SL map questions, but i'll however warn Saavick about your feedback, Emma.

    Thanks, I did not notice land control area info was already being considered. All I was hoping for was to have the 10-15, 100-150, 200-300 lvl info added, hopefully the extra 5-7 digits won't cause too much clutter. I did not mean the map should also add the foot-print of the LCA, just a level range.

    Thank you for the updated map! I was really excited to get it and am extremely impressed (and thankful!) at how players continue to create these awesome tools to share with the community. However, I'm continuing to use the old AoRK maps because of the additional whompah information that was included on the playmap at the whompah sites. Even though some of that is now incorrect, it is still very helpful information. Might you consider adding this to future map versions?

    Tbh, i don't see wich information you're talking about especially as i mainly work on SL map myself ... but may be you should adress this in detail to Saavick directly on his aofroobs topic mentionned earlier in the convo ?

    Upon opening "P" the map in RK/SL, I get the same error: Error loading file: D:/Anarchy Online/cd_image/textures/PlanetMap/Shadowlands/ShadowlandsMap.txt (in the case of the SL map). How do I fix it?

  14. #14
    This error message ain't related to the SL map released in this topic, as it's supposed to be extracted within "Anarchy Online/cd_image/textures/PlanetMap/SLmap/" containing a text file named "SLmap.txt" (reading the "Readme.txt" closely might help you later on).

    But apparently, you have an issue with FC default Shadowland map ... wich could be related to bad client install, hard drive error, wrong folder rights or few more issues like ooops deleting as solutioned here https://forums.anarchy-online.com/sh...deleted-SL-map

    So you can ignore this issue & still install SL map over it, or you can try to fix it first - wich might include reinstall or backup restore. Alternatively, you also can ask some trusty game friend to zip/rar you the entire default Shadowlands folder. No biggie, just bothering

    PS : my wild guess is that you misunderstood tutorial & removed ALL Shadowland folders before installing this one ; assuming it's still installed doing this ingame chat command shall fix it for you =>
    /setoption ShadowlandMapIndexFile "SLmap/SLmap.txt"

    @Demoder : i've cleaned my PM box, thanx for the warning.

    @nanoforcer : Saavick's in charge of RK map, feel free to suggest on aofroob forum (link's on top of this topic).

    I found out the location of Malah Eadem is incorrect on the map. It's right where I stand. So while the maps are getting reworked anyways..
