Re: Postgresql Backend

FYI: I created a postgresql branch on my version of minetestmapper. It supports both johnnyjoy's implementation and ShadowNinja's implementation. The following patch was required to compile minetest + postgresql (johnnyjoy's version): diff --git a/src/CMakeLists.txt b/src/CMakeLists.txt index 82a755...

Re: How to make cartographic maps?

You could use minetest mapper by rogier and change the color.txt file to the colors you want. Rogier's mapper's heightmap option might be a good starting point. You'd need to customize heightmap-colors.txt and maybe heightmap-nodes.txt to obtain the desired effect. https://github.com/minetest/minet...

Thanks. Made the fix definitive & pushed it to the master branch.

I changed the commit message, so the actual commit is not the same as the previous one from the (now deleted) stdint branch.

Re: Minetestmapper rewritten into C++

I've put together windows builds (32 & 64 bit) of minetestmapper. Cross-compiled using MinGW on Linux. They start fine under Wine, and from what I hear, they produce nice maps as well on a real copy of Windows :-)

They can be downloaded here
