    SinglePlayer Map Renderer

    Howdy Survivalists,

    since Random Gen I always wanted a tool to export the explored world. Although I really like cumu's tool Export-discovered-map-to-png, it simply doesn't fit my needs. Personally I don't like python very much and I don't want to run a web server and browser just to see my map.

    So, I made my own version based on cumu's tool. It's a small .net application and exports only one player map to one png file.
    The only option so far is the size of the exported map:
    • FullSize means one pixel equals one ingame block
    • HalfSize means one pixel equals four ingame blocks (two in x and two in y)
    • and so on

    Download and source code is available at: https://github.com/DorHans/7DTD-SMR/releases

    Old address provided, in case you need an older version: https://7dtdsinglemaprenderer.codeplex.com

    A big thanks to cumu for sharing his great work!
    Also a big thanks to Karlovsky120 for writing the 7DaysProfileEditor.

    2015-08-26 version 1.3
    • added options to draw grid lines (could be useful with Regionedit)
      to align the grid to regions use a grid size of 512

    For a screenshot and further discussion, see post #15.

    2015-08-16 version 1.2

    • added possibility to draw a background (taken from game resources)


    2015-07-19 version 1.1

    Thanks for the nice words.

    Just released version 1.1. Now my map, with a size of 7888*9440 pixels, renders in 2.5 seconds instead of 26 seconds. Though smaller sizes still need the whole time.

    This is super -- thank you, DorHans. For a long time now, I've wanted an offline way to scour my explored map to find those teeny cave entrances. (In-game, not only is the clock always ticking, but the resolution of max zoom isn't that great.)

    Just came across this from this thread: 7DTD Alpha 12 - Full mod list!

    I have to say this sounds perfect for plotting my next days course and summarising what stashes I have made from the previous day, all I may add, from the comfort of my plate wood and stick chair by the soothing light of a fire torch. I'm guessing it can be opened in Publisher? Can't try it yet as stuck at work.

    Since this tool exports the map as a png file, it should be compatible with almost every graphics software

    Then you sir are the man! . I'm home now so giving this a run in a few minutes.

    This is gonna make those "minibike pickup trips" so much easier than having to remember where I stashed all that loot. Wish they'd add custom markers to the map so we can drop\pin our own POIs.

    OK first thoughts:

    Install: "Crap I did it wrong, that "install" was far to quick and easy!"
    Launch: "That looks too nice to be working surely!"
    Import: "I'm expecting a pack of dogs to come chasing me this is too easy!"
    Export: "Job done!"
    Viewing: "HOLY FRACK!!!"

    An amazing bit of coding there! The clarity is unbelievable! Far too many !'s but hell, this is awesome dude!

    A quick bit of Publisher editing and I've got bases, pickups and mines\caves highlighted...again amazing job!

    Fantastic! Not only is it easy to use but it works like a charm! Found a new cave within .5 km of my base that I never saw before. Thank you for this!

    Version 1.2

    Hi guys,

    just released version 1.2. I took the background from the in-game map. It's just nicer, than the plain black.

    Version 1.3

    I've added options for drawing grid lines. The attached picture has a grid distance of 100 blocks and the point 0/0 is marked with a small circle. (Just noticed the attached image got converted to jpg and you can't really tell where the circle is. Sorry for that.)
    map_grid.jpg

    My plans for the next versions:
    • improve usability
    • add overlays
    • any ideas?

    As for usability I think about saving settings, last used files or make a dropdown with all saved games, so you don't have to select the *.map file.
    Well, overlays should include your "home" symbol. You should be able to add your own symbols for POIs or caves, like in post #11. It would be great, if anyone has an idea on how to get this information!

    I'd like to hear if you have any other ideas or suggestions.
