Default Map and mod browser

As a side effect of work on the LlamaServer, I've made a web page where you can view all the maps I've been able to find, as well as a selection of mods. I hope this will be helpful.

I think this is fantastic. Nice work. And thank you for the effort.

This must be stickied IMHO.

Nice, I particularly like the map browser.

can I throw something on the wish list? I had kicked around making a PHP-based mod browser (but will never, ever get around to making progress on it) that goes through a mod, and assembles #newmonsters and #newspells etc. as they would show up in the stats screens inside the game. The only hard part would be those that copy existing sprites, armies, without creating a sprite / stat database (at least you could incorporate Edi's DB for the stats). It looks like you are already partway there, it would be a really useful tool....

Good work.

Let me make one small offering; I made (for myself) a little PHP based PBEM server/manager. It's got too many quirks to be worth sharing, but it does have a nice stylesheet that parallels one of the dominions 3 alternate splashscreens. I've posted the screenshot - if you want the CSS and HTML example to implement the styling, I'll be happy to share.

Hi Psientist,

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm afraid I'm basically done with major features for the LlamaServer now, at least for the next year, as I need to knuckle down on my PhD, and I think it's functionally fairly complete. Also I have essentially zero knowledge of anything web-based except CGI scripts - and those just because I use Perl a lot for my PhD. Certainly PhP and CSS are mysterious to me, and the little JavaScript I had to use for the browser caused me much misery (my brother says it would have been trivial if I'd installed proper debug addons for Firefox - as it was, when I had a typo, it just stopped working without an error message).

However, your screenshot looks super shiny. Given infinite time it'd be awesome if I could make the LlamaServer look like that. Very nice skills.

As for the mod browser - that sounds really awesome. However, I think that saying I'm partway there is a bit overoptimistic. Maybe 5% there. It's a funky idea though.

If there's anything I can provide from the LlamaServer for any project ideas you have, I'd be only too happy to help. The only thing I can't provide, unfortunately, is large quantities of time. Well, there are other things, like large quantities of money, but you get my drift.

Great Site!

One thing I tried to download the kingmaker map and the link seems to be broken!

I'm afraid all the ones pointing to the forums are broken right now, because of the forums being redone. I'm optimistic they'll find a fix, rather than me having to reenter all the addresses.
