For those who are curious about the map extraction tool, here's a commented and more readable version.  :)

This gets then cached as he local map for that coordinate.

To give this a better test i just defined the range as 20, which means we're cycling through 40*40 = 100 cubes.</STRONG>



40*40 = 100?


Anyway, could you color different z-levels differently so you can tell where the edge of a pit starts and the level below ends etc?

@ tiles: i have no idea anymore what i was calculating then ^^
in hindsight, i probably forgot the 6... ah well.

@ differently coloured z-levels: maybe, it might be easy enough with recolouring vertexes, but i won't promise anything so far =)

----------------

what happened lately: improved the map_export script to deliver clean and fully usable output. as far as i'm concerned it is now in final form, unless i find some bugs while working it into dwarvis. speaking of that, i'll be mostly working on that now, due to being satisfied with the state of map_extract.

Additionally i've set up a project at google code: http://dwarvis.googlecode.com

I'll be dropping documentation and source-code there, as well as using the svn they provide as a development log. If you wish, you may also use the issue tab there to drop notes or suggestions, but i don't mind it either if you do it here in the forum. =)

Are you able to put screenshots on the google code site?

As soon as i have a version that displays more than the current one, i will. But it's going slowly lately due to real life interference.  :(

Veins are stored separately in the block, so you'll have to change your memory extractor to get that information.  They're in the mineral event format defined at the bottom of Rick's memory hacking page.  AzureLightning's memory page (linked from Rick's) also has the vein information with a nice visual example.

Hey! I just discovered this! I'm an up and coming wannabe-programmer, and was planning on doing someting like this within a few years, haha. (Need some more skills first..) Now I don't have to wait a few years for this, AND it already looks tons better than what I would probably be able to make it into! Nice work! *Watching this topic*
