PostSubject: Dynamic Map for the Server!   Sun Jan 01, 2017 5:31 pm

Hai, I was on another server once and I noticed that they had a live map. This map was viewable in the browser without Minecraft running. Of course I thought that this would be extremely nifty on OC. Now of course OC is not nearly as big of a server as that other server (Thankfully) So it may not be nearly as practical, but this is just a suggestion. I have looked a little into it and found that a lot of servers use Dynmap. I haven't looked much further into this, as I am definitely NOT the one to consult for plugins and stuff but the link I was given for Dynmap is https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/dynmap. I hope you take this inter consideration and reply whenever possible.

This was a planned addition but it didn't happen for two unfortunate reasons:
1) Rendering a map took forever. I let it run all day rendering FB on a test server and it didn't even finish
2) The resulting file size was beyond ridiculous, somehow out-weighing the actual size of the world it was rendering
The performance hit from rendering and the hard drive hit from the product was just too much for our nimble server so I decided to can the idea. As cool as it is, it just doesn't make sense from a technical standpoint
