Advanced Map Renderer?
« on: May 19, 2013, 10:31:58 pm »
I've been wondering if someone could create an advanced version of the map renderer found here.

Basically, each tile would be fully visible like in this map.

I'm pretty sure this is possible, and tried to make it, but I have pretty much no experience in Python.

Yeah, I suppose it would be possible with only a few changes to the code.

But the generated image files could be huge! Imagine tOLP as an image, full sized? :vitellary:

Each room is 320*240 pixels.
Take a fullsized map, and you get 6400*4800 pixels, or ~30MB
And that's the size of the picture fullsized.

Also, the source of that application is outdated compared to the EXE. None of them are free of bugs, but the latest version fixed a major bug regarding tile colors for anything that isn't Space Station. The new version still renders Outside Tileset (tileset="1") with the space station tileset, though...
