History feature

5 years ago • updated by Jake Wilson (Lead Developer) 4 years ago 1

Site will take a static snapshot of each map every half hour. These records are available for a week.

Answer

This is actually already something we are planning on doing.  Except we were planning on doing snapshots every 5 minutes for the past 24 hours.  Do you think it would be more helpful to have a week's worth of data?

Allow us to draw on and share maps with direct links to help organize cross-outfit operations

Ghoulsby 5 years ago • updated by Peter Wickersham 2 years ago 10

Please make a function where we could log in, draw battle plans on an active map with basic MS paint tools, text, and symbols. Then allow us to give those custom maps a unique URL for sharing through teamspeak chat.


This will help organize huge scale operations with multiple outfits involved. Nothing I can think of would more quickly make you the best ps2 maps website. It's free advertising because commanders will hand out the link to your site hourly.

Answer

This is something we have been planning on adding for a while now.  It is a big task but it is definitely coming.

Make the server choices a unique URL

Brandon Whiteley 5 years ago • updated by Jake Wilson (Lead Developer) 3 years ago 5

In doing so, people can easily add your website's server-specific URL (i.e. PS2Maps.com/Waterson) to their favorites list, streamlining the functionality by taking them instantly to their server's continent maps.

Answer

Yes we are planning on doing this.  In fact we are going to create a global view type of page for each server, where you can see all the active territories for each continent, along with statistic like "What % of the territories each faction controls" and "How many of each type of resource each faction is currently getting on each continent"

It'd be nice to be able to see the Lattice Lines

Kevin Roth-Ramsdell 5 years ago • updated by Jake Wilson (Lead Developer) 4 years ago 0

I don't imagine it'd be too hard to add a Lattice filter so we can see what direction battles are going to go in. Just for convenience. Thanks!

Answer

Working on this right now.  Taking slightly longer than expected due to the official PS2 API not being fully updated for GU09 yet.

Indar maps for briggs and emerald not displaying control, at all. or is glitched

Aperture Laboratories 2 years ago • updated by NetAgent 1 year ago 1

So whenever i go to the indar map (doesn't seem to matter which server, or device actually) it will not display correctly, i.e. it will not show any control, or doesn't update. I'll insert a screenshot.

Add a refresh button and/or auto-refresh countdown.

Answer
Denying this because SOE has added a feature to their API where territory control updates are streamed in realtime to ps2maps.com.  Currently ps2maps.com fetches the territory control from SOE once every 60 seconds.  Far from ideal. With SOE's new implementation, the map will update automatically in realtime, probably no more than a second or two difference from what you see live in game.  So we are denying this feature request since this other solution is a lot better.

Have the maps embed able

cooltrain7 4 years ago • updated by Jake Wilson (Lead Developer) 3 years ago 10

I think this would be a amazing resource for forums and other planetside 2 webpages, so the ability to look at the maps on the forums, the admin could add it as a widget ?

Show continent population balance

Larry Mitchell 5 years ago • updated by Jake Wilson (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 0

Is it possible to get a bar graph (like in-game) or something that would show the population of the continent?  Or even the population of a hex area (don't think this one is even possible in-game)?

Answer

We are currently working on adding something that shows the percent of territory control for each faction.  Unfortunately there is no way to fetch the percent of faction population per continent from the PS2 API.  But if they ever do add this to the API, we will definitely add it in.

Highlight newly acquired territories

hankey pankey 5 years ago • updated by Jake Wilson (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 2

Pretty much what the title said.

Answer

Are you suggesting something like a newly changed territory changes to a different color than red/blue/purple and then fades to the appropriate red/blue/purple color?
