TCOD dynamic map video !

Ok, this is not new, but I couldn’t resist showing the real time thing. Here is the real time scaling feature of the world map in the Chronicles of Doryen.
You can get the high definition version here :

or simply watch it on youtube, and remember… it’s only ASCII 😀

  1. Is it possible to make the text and lighting and everything fade in when you’re zoomed into the map 100%? So the transition from map to not-map could be completely smooth…

    I’m glad you didn’t give up on the project. It be shmexy.

  2. hey ! nice idea ! indeed, it would be very cool to move the camera smoothly from the standard game view to the map mode, but it’s rather tricky to do…

  3. In the words of Homer J. Simpson… Holy Molly!!

  4. 🙂

    By the way, Jotaf, do you mind if I add awesomerl in the doryen library homepage projects section ?

  5. Haha sure, no prob, but AwesomeRL was just the name I thought up when I fired up Visual Studio and created the project. It’s not by any means the final name (as if you couldn’t tell! 😉
