Can Nether Portal Map be Published?
 
I heard a rumor in Mumble chat today that Sorontar had expressed approval for publication of my "hand-made" 3D Nether Portal map, and that there had recently been much discussion of it (somewhere). I didn't find any discussion in the forum posts, but if the powers that be approve, I have come up with a reasonable way to publish it as an interactive PDF that can be panned, zoomed, and spun around in a 3D model in Adobe Reader on both the Mac and PC. There are still some render details to work out (like text) and the map is by no means complete. But if there is both interest and permission, I'm willing to spend some time making a good first version to publish.

Much interest from me :)

Just to confirm, yes it has the approval from the Admin team (we have a secret subforum).

LOL, it wasn't a rumour - he was standing over my shoulder saying "let him know he can publish it" :P so I conveyed that message :)

Just so long as it's showing the tunnel systems and not locations of glowstone or anything like that.

It only shows things you can walk on for the most part. The vast majority is there for tunnels and original and current intended purpose is for finding and getting to Portals. There are a few flat landmarks such as Nether Wart farms and the occasional chest/workbench to help with orientation. Portals are labeled with the same words used on attached signs, except a few mystery portals I hope to get some community participation to identify.

I've come up with a way to get text into it now, and spent most of last night and today getting the portal labels in. Hopefully won't be too long before I publish a first draft, and certainly look forward to suggestions and such.

I look forward to seeing it! - thanks for putting in so much work to get it done!!
