    Miscellaneous Maps

    Edit:
    Since all the links are dead, and because any new one will die probably soon too, I've created a single file with all the documents listed below. Here is the link [URL="http://rapidshare.com/share/0AC000652810A94156AF41E4BF104F8E"]http://rapidshare.com/files/40324529...ort-Images.rar

    =====================

    Hi,

    I will use this thread as a depository of links for miscellaneous GIS maps that I've done in order to help modders. The first link is only a foretaste of what will follow soon.
    Some files can be very large (>25Mo). That's why I've used the .emf format for them, which is not valid for Photoshop but which is very well managed by Paint (which is also usually by default on the computers). If this cause a problem, I will advise.
    Since this work has been done for modders, if they have a request, please let me know.
    Thank you,

    The icons are only previews of the files

    thank you very much. this is very usefull. Actually i'm looking for a map tutorial. I tried many months ago to create a brand new map (a sort of new world mod) but i couldn't understand how to do it. Maybe someone knows how to do it? Or knows an easy tutorial that explain how to create a brand new map for DH?

    (i know that there is http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...cussion-Thread this tutorial but i remember that i tried to follow it, but when i extract the map, the map was the one from the hoi2 vanilla and not the dh full map)

    I'm sorry, I can't help you with this tool. I've tried very shortly to use it, but it was obviously not at all what I was looking for, and I didn't persevere. Actually, I had a discussion with Martin 2 years ago about the map and about the advantages to use a GIS map as opposed to the current engine. I totally understood his preference to keep the current system and fix bugs/implement new features as opposed to do an overhaul of the map module which would have allowed modders to create new maps more easily but at the expense of almost everything else. Having a GIS map would have also freed ressources and allowed display of data that you don't even dream about, but I don't foresee this in the future (or only as an overlay to the current system).
    I've developped this GIS map to help modders and to check the files in DH and find inconsistencies (like impossible connections between provinces, missing rivers...) but the GIS map can't be used to create a new map for DH (except for generating the xls/csv files)
    Again, I'm sorry about this.

    Thank you Bizon, very much appreciated!

    Actually, you don't need the maps but the original files.

    Updated.
    I would like to thank here Bizon for the very useful routine that he wrote for me. It allows to extract the owned provinces from a savegame. With this, I can create a political map for a mod using DH map in 2-3 minutes.
    NWO2 (scenario Containment1950) is therefore and logically the first mod to have its political map in this thread. (I found an issue by the way, see OT)
    Thank you again Bizon !

    You are welcome.

    I can literally play with all the attributes from adj-def.csv and province.xls. If you have any specific requirement to make you life easier (like: I need the IC+mp+name of the province together, as well as the terrain), don't hesitate to ask.

    Started yesterday, and since FODD won the "Mod of the month" contest, I am updating the old model that I made for the GIS Vanilla map, in order to integrate the last functionalities that I've worked on. It should be done soon if I don't meet unexpected issues. After this, I will have a support for any mod not converted to the new map.

    Modders, I have assumed so far that only the political borders have been modified.
    * I can very easily integrate modifications from adj-def.csv, but since these can't be properly displayed on the in-game map yet, I assumed that they are the same as the regular DH map.
    ** I can integrate any modifications from province.xls as well. If you confirm that province.xls has been or has not been modified, I can extract maps with new names, IC/mp/... distributions,...

    Lucifer, I am starting on a battle scenario for the Franco-Prussian war and it looks like this thread will be very helpful. Thank you for all the map work. Can I ask, do you have a way of easily generating a political map for this mod?

    Yes.
    I just need a save, at the start of the scenario.
