So I had this Idea that you could take the behavior of a painting and implement it into maps.
What I mean by this Is you can explore your world with your map and record where you've been like normal. But then take that Image that minecraft saves of your map and use it as a painting. This is where the mod comes in, and I would like someone to help me with this Idea as I am no good at Modding (I got a C in computer programing which focused on Java script, what does that tell you? ).
So the Mod needs to just take the programing from placing paintings on walls , put it into maps so it makes a 1x1 painting (or bigger) and Upload the Image from the saved map location.
While we are on the topic of maps, perhaps someone could figure out how to name maps as well, and change them from saying 'map 01','map 02', etc. , to allow the player to give input on the maps name.
Thats all I had to say so please post your thoughts and if anyone is interested to take up the challenge I encourage them to give it a go.
