Default [Tool] GD Interactive Maps

I just released my first version of the Grim Dawn Interactive Maps tool:

LINK: http://maps.grimdawn.es



Features:

- Zoomable world map with hotspots. Zoom can be done with the mousewheel and/or the blue map menu icons.
- Clicking on each hotspot lable you'll see a little image and sometimes a brief explanation about the hotspot.
- Clicking on each menu entry below the world map will zoom the map to the chosen location.
- Lables are hidden until you zoom almost to the max, to avoid confusion.
- Dragging the bottom-right corner of the map will resize it.
- Map of each dungeon/undeground area, classified by acts (main menu).
- Map names in the colorbox popup.
- Maps can be viewed through worldmap too. Each tooltip box contains the map link/s corresponding to each location.
- Rift tooltips appear before any other type of tooltip when zooming. 50% zoom now shows the rift tooltips, 80% zoom shows all tooltips (some kind of antispoiler).

You can also download a compressed file containing all the images used to create the app. This also includes the layered psd file used to create the world map and the hotspots.

Due to the game nature, hotspots can be classified in many ways. I made it 99% in a chronological order. I think is the easiest way to use it, and also the easiest way for me if I need to modify the script.

For any kind of question or suggestion, please, you're welcome.

Hope you find it useful.

This is very cool! Excellent work!

Will you be adding locations for one shot chests or have I just overlooked that?

Also, a mod should sticky this.

Awesome!

Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out how you posted a link with fewer than 3 total posts on the forums...

There are five entrances to Bloodbriar's Lair, btw, whereas your map only suggests one.

Many thanks therefor!

//Edit

If you open a Act-1 map, you can swicht beween all maps, that's nice!

But ... there should be shown the name of each map.

And it would be also nice, if you can open each map over the world map ... if possible!?

I'll try to add more content like that in any of the next releases.

Titles for each map will be added.

Each "submap" through main map won't be zoomable and will display as a standard lightbox image, but I'll add this feature too.

Don't scrap any work! Still a lot of stuff to do here, any help will be nice.

The four remaining will be added in the next release.

Thank a lot for your feedback!

Don't know if the work I've got will be any use, as I wasn't going as fancy as your interactive on-line map with many nice features . Mine was simply going to be a large downloadable image with all the areas showing as visited (brighter green) and around the edges of the world, in the dark areas, I was going to add the underground maps. Also I was going to do 2 versions, one with just riftgates marked and the underground maps having no names so it's sort of spoiler free and then a second map with various icons to show, locations, entrances, quests etc and all the underground maps labeled.
