FOOLED YOU!! hahahaha, all you all thought I was finally posting a MAP WIP, when instead this is a Mapping Utility WIP. So, for a little bit now I have been looking for a new programming project, and been thinking about writing a utility to help all yall mappers. Then, TheBladeRoden made up this amazing deathmap and I figured that this seems like a simple enough thing to automate. So here is the... Basic Premises Every time there is an event on a Source server, the event gets added to a log in a fairly standard format: Using this data you can do some black voodoo magic and end up with what TheBladeRoden has in his thread. Things I need to decide and or learn still: What events do I want to track, how to parse each event, and how to store each event. Death Locations Killer Locations Killed by [Weapon] Locations [Object] Built Locations Sentry / Dispensor / Teleporters [Object] Killed locations So you can filter by all objects or just objects that actually killed people aka Sentry 1 killed so it shows up I need to decide how I am going to track / retrieve / filter / whatever events. What programming language do I want to use? Leaning towards Java at the moment. I need to do a program design. So, this thread is going to be me tracking the progress, maybe showing example output, bitching about problems, and generally asking for ideas.
