Ooliteers Planet - An Interactive Pinmap

Post by CommRLock78 » Mon Nov 19, 2012 6:48 pm

A new map has been created by Selezen here.

So, Selezen found an alternative to doing a poll on PinMaps. Be forewarned that the site is a bit touchy. Note my quote at the bottom if you're having trouble seeing the map, as at this point, it's the only thing I know to do.

The log in is "Oolite"
The password is the same word in lowercase with bbs at the end. If anyone has problems working that out, please PM me.

It's a pretty feature packed little tool, actually. Let me know if it's a good thing to use.

Six of one and half a dozen of the other :P.

Either way, the map does not show up to start, so be aware.

Entertaining spot you put your marker, EV.. :lol:

Ok, I'm on there now.

Added myself, admittedly, just round the corner from where I live.

What are thoughts on making this thread a 'sticky' ?

Why not? And might a more appropriate title be in order as well?

Probably so ;) (I had named it "Where in the world 2", so that people would make the connection between it and the original thread that Shipbuilder started). How about "Oolite Players World Pin Map" :?:

Yes, I realise it 'grew' from the other thread, but it has taken off well and has a distinct character and purpose now.
"Oolite Players World Pin Map" is a bit cumbersome but I honestly can't think of anything better :)
