Maps on the fly
For you map junkies out there (I am a huge map guy), here is something we recently added for our players.
The IRE games have never had in game maps like many other MUDs. Our game design and room layout does not lend itself to easy display. Recently we added a coordinate system to the worlds. Volunteers created maps by assigning x, y, z coordinates to rooms. This allowed us to create ascii maps in the game and to instantly create maps for display on our websites.
Here are some samples:
These maps are all generated from current in-game data. In other words, the maps are never out of date. If there is a change in the game the website maps are instantly updated.
