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.

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.

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.
