Vampire deCarnac's Map (2012)

The new version benefits from the integrated support for SVG in HTML5, and should work in most browsers without any add-ons.

It maintains the basic visual concept of the original, having three views:

  • an overwiew of the entire city (200 x 200)
  • a view of a "district" (50 x 50)
  • a zoomed-in view (7 x 7)

The map basically displays all fixed buildings in the citybanks, pubs, stations, lairs etc. It also displays the moving guilds and shops, if that information has been properly updated in the map's database (see below).

Features

The map lets you select two waypoints — the first is assumed to be your present location, the second your intended destination. The following information is presented:

  • Number of AP needed to walk the entire distance
  • Number of AP needed to travel the distance if using transit, and which stations to use
  • Number of AP needed to walk to the nearest bank (new feature)

You can click one of the above three buttons, and get a visual travel guide on the optimal paths possible (new feature).

The map has a Search dialogue, where you can type in the name of a building and zoom to its location.

The map keeps track of time and the scheduled movement of guilds and shops. It now displays two tiny clocks, indicating how long each of them will stay (new feature).

All building information in the map now comes out of an included text file database. With some simple copy-paste operations using any text editor program, the latest data from A View in the Dark can be shown on the map. This can also be done on a session-only basis, without using any editor (new feature).

Status

The map is now available for direct use here: Vampire deCarnac's Map of RavenBlack City, or download via here: geeky website.

Note: Not all lairs are on the map, just the ones I have seen myself.
