I updated the world map page with all the areas (it had a fair amount missing) and made it more interactive.

It looks like crap!
Haha. Kidding. Thanks for updating the map, Davairus. Looks great, man.
The first couple of area maps I tried pulling up with the drop-down returned nothing, though. Is this where I laugh at myself again for missing the obvious???

My goal here was to be completely hands off with the actual data and just make sure that it came from the codex. I didn't want a person to be responsible for keeping the information relevant.. the whole point of the codex is to convert that manual process of data collection into a crowd sourcing. I was hoping to make it the same with the maps list. Unfortunately I didn't look too closely when I pulled the area names from the areas that got into the codex. I found it had areas like "a tornado" etc. Which is in the codex. It has to be. WTF? Anyway, I changed the areas list to come directly from the database.

If a map is still missing, and I dare say there is one or two, there are options as far as next steps go. I personally would like to see Mystics on task with making these maps. We can keep mystics busy for several years with this. If someone already has a ton of maps for some reason, send it to us and I will drop them in the website. I see 97 maps in the folder but some are mini versions of the same map.. 65 of the 97 are hand made

What format do you need the maps? Like text file representations?

we'll totally take user submitted maps for any empty slot

if you're submitting a map to replace an existing map, that's less valuable but we'll take it if it's better

Is it better to have a map up that's very inaccurate (e.g., Battlezone) or take it down because of the full rewrite?

adding nonexistent map > updating inaccurate map > updating accurate map that sucks

This mapper is built directly into the webclient now. Just watch you don't get yourselves killed looking at your map.
