Hi.

Recently I have been looking for a some more detailed map than the one provided in Silkroad. Well, as I did not really find one I decided to write it on my own, and this is the result so far. It may be useful for some of you, so I share it here.

Features
- detailed map of the whole Silkroad world
- zoom from about 50% of the ingame world map scale down to city map scale at every place
- all NPCs included with exact positions
- teleporters and ferries
- custom location markers can be added
- create and share custom paths
- monsters
- regions

Screenshots
Spoiler!


Controls
move the map like in Silkroad, zoom with mouse wheel
shift-click to add a waypoint to the selected path
ctrl-click to force-add a waypoint to a path (unreachable position error will be ignored)

Spoiler!


known bugs
  • Sometimes zooming the map will scroll the locations list, looks a little weird. fixed in 1.3
  • Moving the map may not be fluent. - Notice that this is no actual bug. The program just loads the necessary textures to show the part of the map where you moved to.
  • Clicking a location will not jump to it immediately. - Same like before, the program is loading textures.
  • when starting or terminating Silkroad the map wont be displayed anymore - nasty, I try to fix it. Starting the map tool after SRO Client is loaded will cause no problems.
  • an "Invalid pointer operation" error may occur when terminating the program. Please let me know if this happens. If this happens, the mapper process must be killed via task manager.
  • The path data is not 100% correct, thus some reachable places in SRO are unreachable in the program and vice versa. You can help me to improve the data base by using the screenshot function and marking the borders (i.e. in red color) with a graphics program.

Version History
1.0
  • First version

1.2
  • Added unique spawn points
  • Added option to copy coordinates to clipboard

1.3
  • create and edit paths
  • finding short routes to certain locations
  • text format of paths for easy exchange
  • fixed unique spawns, they should be correct now

2.0
  • Multi-layer map display with all objects being correctly placed now (in 1.x I cheated with the caves)
  • Areas: The region a point is in will be shown, locations and npcs are sorted by area
  • Monsters: spawn points and a scalable mob database
  • Improved screenshot function, a legend will be created and added to the picture

System requirements and installation
I tested it on Win Vista and XP.
RAM required is about 60 MB.
Please make sure that D3DX8ab.dll, unique_symbol.dds and all data files (commands.txt, locations.txt, adjacency.txt, paths.txt, mobs.txt) are in the same folder as mapper.exe. All minimap files (68x94.dds and so on) must be stored in a subfolder called minimap.

Your mapper folder should look similar to this:

Nice.
Are you using the maps from Drew or did you extract all of these yourself?

PileOfMush - I used the PK2 Extractor and the ddj to dds converter, thanks to the author of the PK2 tools.

magisuns - Added a scan. I see, it looks suspicious, unfortunately there is no way to prove that the program is good intended, or is there? Let me know pls.

rck shx pike - Maybe 50 hours, most of the time was spent for getting to know directX. It actually was a dx exercise ;-)

I was looking for some old thread and thankfuly i found this :) ... nice updates, but still didin't add the direct teleport in the map to the bandit fortress.
Another thing, i believe its hard to find such maps, but you can try to add the chin' tomb dungeon maps too, that would be cool :D

Keep the good work :wink:

umh... so if this walks your character to a place, wouldn't that be a walkscript, and umh... that's what bots do...

It doesn't walk you char anyway. It doesn't interact with the Silkroad client at all. It uses its own database (though, extracted from the pk2). It doesn't matter if you have SRO installed or if you have ever played it.

Unlike a bot the walks are not scripted but computed. If you want evidence, make it show you the way from Hotan to lets say Wind Town; if you're done tell me why 95% of the bots run through Karakorum to reach Rok Mt...

Call it a gadget - fine if you dont need it - but I have seen at least 10 "where is the secret chamber" or "how do I reach moles" threads and I predict hundrets of them when legend 4 is released ;)

Sad, would you consider releasing the source code for this?

There will be an update soon, before Legend 4 is being released.
  • legend 4 "compatible". Since I plan to release it before the update, I must rely on the KSRO files, so minor mistakes in the new dungeon might be possible.
  • improved internal map management, especially dungeons are at their real place now
  • improved path management
  • added areas for better orientation
  • added monster spawns

About the missing map files, please wait until a few days I'm done with all the new stuff :)

Yours, Sad

If I publish the source certain people might modify it in certain unwelcome ways and this is not what I would like to see.

What a great update! You've been very busy.

There may be some teleport nodes on the 2nd floor of Jinsi that don't exist in the map tool. Just as an example, check out MC2.

I'm not sure if I've screwed up something with my DW cave maps or what, but they don't line up to the location of the mobs that are supposed to be in them. (Could be my fault, I originally got my maps straight from the PK2 back when the FileFront map link didn't work and it might be different than your version).


I'd like to request some things, if possible:
I know making a dynamically resizable app is a pain in the ass, but can you make an option to resize the app maybe to 2-3 more fixed size options... like a Small, Medium, Large option? Perhaps even a Wide option for those of us with wide screen monitors?

Also, I'd like to be able to edit the location of waypoints after they're placed.
