Default Maps of TOG worlds

just wondering guys, why we don't have a map like the tectonicus maps that we used to have ?? I find it hard to find where ppl are, due to rendering issues and lag I can't have my render on far and thought I scouted the area thoroughly but obviously I did not
I have accidently started a build and today Daz realised I'm near TOGwarts Duck is this an issue ?? I can just delete my build and go somewhere else if it is a prob
soz if this has been covered already in the forums

Hi Carm, have a look at Map issues for Frontier and night maps for Frontier and MindCrack

Links to the night maps haven't yet been added to the sticky and index pages, but probably will be sometime this week.

Tectonicus expects the Bukkit mods to have been used, which is why I wasn't able to use it for the MindCrack world. If anyone is successful in their private world, please tell us. I might have stuffed something up.

How about a different mapping program like Dynmap or something?

Dynmap was tried but it is only dynamic, which the server can't cope with. No other alternate map was found other than MCMAP.

Dynmap can be set to update at the start and it them maps already generated chunks (trying it out on my home server). Could probably play with the config file to dial it back on what it renders and what resolution.

Apparently ppl have hacked together The Minecraft Overviewer to work with Mindcrack

It's more the matter of adding more processing to the machine. if there is a choice between doing maps once a week,that take a few hours to render on Tectonicus, versus regularly updating the maps on an already busy machine, I tend to prefer the weekly option.

With the weekly map, the minimap and the "x" map (press "x" in game), you can quickly learn where abouts you are, especially with coordinates.

I am not dismissing any alternative, just saying that dynamic maps that are regularly updated are not needed and are not good for the server, especially as it is on a free shared machine.

Another problem is that map renderer has to work on Linux, not Windows. This rules out some options.

I'll have another look at using Overviewer when I have time.
