Re: Announcing the Public Heroscape Map Database!

So I've completed a major update to the Public Heroscape Map Database! There are now over a thousand maps that are mostly done (the database has information on both the terrain requirements and the download location.)

Some other updates:

* All BoV maps have been uploaded.
* "Wargrounds of Scape" has been added as a new map type.

Information on the current status of the Database is below:

Mostly done maps: 1042

Maps with name, terrain, download link & thumbnail: 314
Maps with name, terrain, download link, but no thumbnail: 727

Maps needing work: 1648

Maps where we have name & download link, but no terrain information: 1552
Maps where we have name & terrain information, but no download link: 96

How you can help:

* If you're a map-maker, make sure your maps are included and the information is accurate.
* If you help administrate one of the major map types (C3G, HoSS, etc.), make sure those maps are uploaded and completed.
* Volunteer! Look at some of the maps where we have name & download link, but no terrain information, and update the terrain information. (Bonus points for adding the thumbnail and map size data!)
* Anyone out there with database chops want to turn this into an actual database instead of a large spreadsheet?
* Mods, Sticky this post to give it some more visibility?

Let me know if you have other thoughts / suggestions. Right now the database doesn't have support for multiple links for one map (like online version, VS version, PDF version, etc.). Would that be a useful function?

Scape on, my friends!

Re: Announcing the Public Heroscape Map Database!

You might want to make that "anyone with the link can view" instead of giving everyone edit access. People can make copies of their own to work with. You could then grab and merge. Or you could even allow editing of certain tabs while keeping others protected. I'm just worried about stuff getting garbled here.

I have protected some stuff, but merging different lists is a non-trivial activity. If things get screwed up I can always revert to an older version. But, another reason this should really be in a proper database.

Actually, you got me thinking about how to implement this, so it's done! I've created a locked "Maps" tab with only those maps where there's terrain + download info, and an editable "Maps to Edit" tab with all the current maps. I kluged together a checksum so I can see what changed, and then I can periodically update the "Maps" tab. Thanks for getting me thinking on that, I think this is a better solution.

While this thread is out of the woodwork I'd like a copy if your data. I made myself a tourney map building sheet that you can find in my signature for my own use for when I make maps and I might be able to use what you have.

Keep doing what you're doing, but do it better. ~Self

Sent a PM with what I have. I am more than happy to send the same to anybody that wants it. No quality promises though, I haven't actively helped with this for 4ish years.
