I'm trying to make the wiki page on mappers more useful, since right now it's just a huge mess, listing command line tools and GUIs together. There are way too many options for anyone to find the appropriate mapper for their needs without spending a day trying them all out.
I'd like to make a filterable table listing all the mappers and their features to help users pick what they want. I need help coming up with a list of features that will adequately advertise the niche of each mapper without being overly detailed.
Can anyone think of a better way to describe the functionality or any important functionality I've missed?
Mac OS X
Isometric (35 degree)
Arbitrary ( for mappers using OpenGL )
90 Degree Increments
1x - One block = one pixel (or equivalent for isometric)
Nx - Any zoom
Suitable for server automation
Capable of rendering huge maps
Custom Color/Texture Support
Selective block rendering (render only certain block types)
I made little 20x20 icons and added them to the first post. I'm trying to figure out how to best present these on the wiki but I'm having some trouble with formatting. If someone can explain why the features template keeps getting wrapped in
Very interesting indeed. I hate the new design because it takes up too much space and gives no overview over it because of the huge screenshot every program has. I suggest that we try to make that better before someone gets hurt.
And back to your icons, you forgot Nether mode support. Also logging is something some of them have.
Ninjaedit: And a way to sort maps by these features we've listed.
