    As it is always nice to see how a world grew and changed, I've been saving Alex02dsa's self-updating maps and made a GIF out of them for the 4 most prominent map types. Credit for all the individual maps goes to Alex.

    Enjoy the growth of this world.

    These maps will be updated every so often when I collected enough extra images to make a clear difference.

    I will not be using maps other than what Alex offers.

    Images not showing? Check this thread first or let us know.

    Just saw a few errors when looking at them, one is my idiocy and three errors were probably updating errors

    - On the top player map, the 17th of June is actually the ODA map.
    - The 7th of June features twice in a row on the maps.
    - Same for the 9th of June.
    - The 11th of June features 4 times in a row on each map.

    The first error is obviously mine. The others all have their correct datestamp on my pc so I think there were either some server problems or I had a slight issue with my timezone being one hour off compared to UK UTC. Will be fixed when I upload the next versions, which will probably be in two months or something like that.

    Very nice to watch, would be brilliant if it was slowed down a bit!

    They're brilliant! I agree a bit slower would help us focus on the areas of change. I love this idea though...can we have it on all worlds?! :p

    It's a quite a bit of work though, I have to manually save the images every day and put them in corresponding folders. Doing it once for one world is pretty okay, but for a couple, it becomes a bit of a hassle. Besides, for 28 there's no auto-updating yet :(

    I mailed Alex to ask for one, so when he's on next I'm sure he'll oblige.

    Surely there's some tech savvy individual out there who can find us a simpler way to do this.

    Ah, I did get in contact with alex but already wrote a small program that pulls all the images on a daily basis for the maps. Just have to make new gifs once in a while.

    It's still nice, but the colors need to follow a certain tribe or player through the time. It's kinda messy when the colors are jumping back and forth :p

    The gifs have been updated. The publicly broadcasted ones are now only 5 frames per second, the first and last frames show for a longer amount of time.

    Want to see a slower or faster version, go here and find the one you are looking for.
    The slow one has 2 frames per second.
    The fast version has 10 frames per second.

    Just a fun fact. This is the first world that was completely "documented" like this :)
