Illymap: Illyriad Heat & Partition Maps

Post  Nilac on Thu Jun 21, 2012 1:14 am

Hi,

I made this map tool for Illyriad. You can access it here. It uses WebGL, so you need a modern browser, other then Internet Explorer (preferably Chrome), updated graphics driver, and a decent/recent graphics card (no integrated Intel stuff). If it doesn't work on your computer please tell me.

What can you use it for? You can see heat maps with the overall population distribution, or separated for each race (for instance, you can spot the dwarf stronghold). There are also partition maps, showing which race or alliance are dominating each spot on the map. The alliance partition is the most useful if you want to relocate and are searching for friendly places. Also, it gives a nice global political overview.

Please tell me what you think! Cheers.

Seems promising.

What language you used? Is the code accessible?

Thanks!

Click on the GitHub link at the bottom of the page to access the project. The code is unlicensed. It is javascript with WebGL (part of the HTML5 standard).

WebGL is the OpenGL for the Web, while OpenGL is the 3D graphics standard that everybody uses except Microsoft, who have Direct3D. In this project WebGL is used mostly for computation on the GPU, not for 3D graphics. If you already know some javascript and want to learn WebGL, the Learning WebGL tutorials are the best place to start. To see some cool WebGL demos, go here or here. Even Illyriad has a WebGL 3D demo here.

Any suggestions are welcome.
