Title: Is there vector resource unit map
Post by: Dezeer on March 15, 2012, 06:08:10 pm
I was trying to look for a Pdf/vector map out the resource unit map similar to the one below, but I didn't find anything else than the regular maps. Does anybody know or could make one like that?

I have a version of UQM's starmap with constellation lines in .DIA format over here (http://mooses.nl/uqm/wip/uqmstarmap.dia), but it still needs to be edited manually in Dia (http://dia-installer.de/) (proper placement of starnames and alpha-beta indicator text).

Dia can export things to SVG and allows you to manually make adjustments. I've used Dia to create the Project 6014 interactive SVG starmap (http://www.stack.nl/~joris/p6014/starmap-spoilerfree.svg).

Right, I just realized that you were talking about the resource unit map, not a 'normal' map of the universe.

Luckily, I was just working on creating a version of UQM's starmap rendered with Javascript/RaphaelJS, and adding in colorization via resource units didn't seem too hard.

Here it is (http://mooses.nl/uqm/wip/js-starmap/). Click on the "colorize via available minerals (value)" button. Legend/scale is the same as the one in the map you linked to.
Added bonus: biological data. For the legend/scale of the biodata, see source. :)

In Chrome, RaphaelJS renders via SVG. Maybe it's possible to copy the SVG data over into some other file and then edit it with some vector graphing tool to make it printable on a sheet of paper.

Thanks, I was in the works of converting this map into resource unit map.

Lets see if I am going to do that....

Ok, here is a pdf map of the resource unit map http://dezeer.kapsi.fi/sc2-resource_unit_starmap.pdf (http://dezeer.kapsi.fi/sc2-resource_unit_starmap.pdf). It's based on the same map as the one above, lets hope there isn't any errors.
