Ahoy! For many years now me other half, Darksmell, has hosted the political maps for this game at his website. We're leaving the game, and so I am putting this out there and then hopefully I'll be able to bribe him into actually logging into the forums to check on it. Here it is: Are mates still using these? Would anyone else like to host them? They would likely need some altering again for some oceans (lowering sizemin, etc.). Thanke much!

What would be needed to host these?

I could add them to the LibertyHull website

I check them quite frequently actually! It'd be a shame if they ceased to exist :(.

Oh so that's whose been hosting them all this time?!

I seriously use them frequently, they are one of the greatest political "quick tools" out there; especially considering whenever I travel to oceans which aren't my home.

I heartily endorse that product and/or service to anyone trying to get a glance at ocean politics.

Rizzo,
Would hate to see them cease :(

I see that Darksmell uses debian to host this, so it may be fairly easy for me to host them also, but I'd need to know what packages to install and such.

Thanke mates! Ok, I told Darksmell that mates want the maps enough to host them themselves, so hopefully he'll be checking in soon. Aye, he uses Debian, and has essentially completely ignored the maps for the last year or so. So it can't be that hard ;)

These are awesome, and I'm glad that some folks have offered to re-host.

If anyone takes them over, I wonder if the min size for Midnight might be reduced to 80-100.

Haha. Malachite would have to be like, 50-100 >.>...

I do enjoy using the maps though for viewing how an ocean is "spread" when it comes to who will job for who.

Would it hurt to put the source somewhere like sourceforge and having multiple people hosting it.... Meaning if the new host, for whatever reason, fell off the face of the earth, things are not permanently lost?

I'll put them on my site if someone explains how to do it, but I only have basic website hosting things so I don't think I can install anything.
