Map Editor and Move Planner and User Search at ruinedshadows.com

Post  ruinedshadows on Sun Sep 18, 2016 4:01 am

Hi guys, as you may have seen, I recently made some posts inquiring about the old map editor and various other tools that used to be available. With a pointer to an old thread from Xmo5, I found Nyvelion's Map Editor and Move Planner and hosted them on my new site ruinedshadows.com.

First of all, HUGE THANKS TO NYVELION. I want to be very clear that most of the work done here is Nyvelion's. I am simply hosting the php files and making small improvements/bug fixes.

If anyone wants to help out, please shoot me a pm on here or on awbw. There are two ways to help out. Server costs are $3/month. I am more than happy to cover this, but if anyone wants to donate to these costs, that'd be cool. Secondly, if you have any programming experience and want to help with bug fixes, I can add you to the github project I made for these tools.

Finally, if you notice any bugs or would like to see new features, please comment on this thread. I will try to keep an updated list.

Here is the list of what I have so far:

Current known bugs - Map Editor:
-Comm Towers cannot be placed except for amber blaze
-Desert brown's hq is missing
-labs are missing

Current improvements in progress - Map Editor:
-Make resizing a little more intuitive
-Add a list of the letter-tile mappings as a workaround for adding things manually that are missing
-Documentation/code cleanup

Current known bugs - Move Planner:
-Calculator overlaps
-grid doesn't work
-iframe is not wide enough for damage calculator

Current improvements in progress - Move Planner:
-add check move/range if possible
-add fog if possible
-Documentation/code cleanup

Thanks guys, enjoy the tools, and let me know if you have any questions! ~rs

P.S. I'll stop flooding the forums now with posts about this, I'll contain myself to this one thread. haha Razz

Edit 1 (2017-06-18):
We noticed that there is no way to search for users on the awbw site. You have to manually type their username after the appropriate url.
So, I added a pretty simple user search tool to the site. You can now enter a username, hit enter and it will bring you to that user's page on the awbw site. Right now it's pretty basic and just brings you to the page of whatever you type in (could be invalid). Eventually, I want to query the page first, see if it's valid and if not offer suggestions of similar names. Also, I want to add or track usernames on the site so I can offer helpful search alternatives. So, if a user it trying to find be for example, they could type "ruined" and it would suggest, here are the users whose usernames start with "ruined": "ruinedshadows", etc.

awesome! Thanks a lot for the work and the description!

If I resize the map, the right side and the bottom stay black. Is this by design and will the map be cut off if I upload the map? Or am I overlooking something and I did not actually really resize the map?

I am trying to improve that piece. As you noticed, for now, if you resize the map, the text box upon clicking save will still contain "0"s for all black squares up to 40x39. If you made a smaller map, you should copy that to a text file and remove all the zeros before you upload your map to awbw. I am working on seeing if there is a way to have it not include the 'extra' black squares.
