Map Re-render

posted Dec 21, 2010, 7:46 PM by Terris Leonis
We're taking advantage of the downtime to run a full re-render of our Google map of the Freebuild world. Once this is complete, you will see a much better-looking map, as the grass and tree color now changes between biomes just as it does in the actual game.

Total running time of the render will be about four days. It's been running for 24 hours already and is about a third of the way through rendering the chunks. Once that is complete, there is a second step as the chunks are composed together into maptiles. For updates, see this thread.
