Thread: Maptool does Zoom Zoom Zoom!

    Post Maptool does Zoom Zoom Zoom!

    There used to be a slight zooming limitation with Maptool - that has changed.

    These are simply amazing and cool! I'm so glad that MT can do this now. The CGWP could benefit form this ability I would think. Thanks for posting those demos!
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    I'm a going to run, not walk, to check this out for myself. Looks super cool!

    Any chance we could see the source files to figure out how this is done?

    Note that there is still some quirkiness when working at the extremes that need to be ironed out. This build removes the zoom limits, following builds will make it more intuitive to work at the different zooms.

    The source code is always available:

    http://rptools.svn.sourceforge.net/v...tools/maptool/

    There are also instructions for checking out the entire project and running the dev version in the forums.

    My first thought was - This is really cool.

    My second thought was -- its still not ViewingDale.... .


    But then I went back to 'really cool'.

    It is really cool - you guys are gonna have much more fun with big zooms. It opens up a whole new realm of go anywhere mapping. It stops you having to look for the 'right' map all the time. Its all in one big area - you just go in at the right place and there it is.

    I'm pretty glad actually that MapTool is going this way as it probably means that ill get to see more multi scale maps being made now and people will make the maps at higher res so that they can go into them further.
