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 hope people don't object to me stickying this. I will unsticky it if it's considered a bad idea, but I think people may find it very helpful.

Re: Map and mod browser
I think this is fantastic. Nice work. And thank you for the effort.

This must be stickied IMHO.

Gawsh. That's excellent. I agree with Edratman, keep it stickied.

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.

Re: Map and mod browser
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!

Re: Map and mod browser
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.
