Note: The x32 builds are more limited in map size then the x64 builds, so if you running a x64 Windows use the x64 builds.

Nice tool but would it be possible for you to use the Qt version 4.8? (Compatibility reasons)

I will try it. But it was hard to find the old version, and I does not know how long 4.8 is supported. The last update was over a year ago.

KDE has switched to Qt5 this year, so Qt4 is pretty much obsolete now. New projects should use Qt5.

Oh well, then it's no problem with the current used Qt version.

Wouldn't it be "Ausgangsbild" instead of "Ausgangs Bild"?

works!

The way blue is used in the hightmap irritated a little but that can be tweaked I guess.
No geometry yet? Hmm my position was out of bounds
Some warning before an existing image is overwriten might be nice.

so now to persuade you to include all the stuff my batch script does (my local version has some more features than the download but is embarrassing messy)

One of the reasons I began writing the batchfiles was to automate the naming of the map outputs - so - :-P
being able to design a template for the output name would be really cool. My template went something like worldname+date+time but it would be nice if you could come up with something more flexible than me.

ooh I really like this
let me play some more
brace yourself for a large feature request list of all the stuff I had planned but not done

huge update:

added Tiles option
more status tips
half-automatic filenamegeneration
added geometry
added scalefactor
added minY and maxY
added geometrymode
added colorpicker for HeightmapColor
added drawAir
added draw noShades

@twoelk it asks now for overwrite, if the file exists, and you can specify the output using parameters <worldname>, <isodate> and <time>

I was able to compile the program on Linux, do you think you could add the following instructions to the first post?

I ran the following commands in the terminal, with the repo directory as the current directory:

Code: Select all

qmake minetestmappergui.pro
make
That created an executable file for the program in my user directory.

New Update:
show progress also in windows Taskbar
added button to cancel minetestmapper
changed all icons to svg
new app icon by McKrustenkaese
y-map limit ranges now +- 30000 instead of +-128
display error messages if minetestmapper fails
display error message if no world selected
options to clear mintestmapperlog
display stdError of minetestmapper in red
updated Languages

The Windows build should include now all necessary dll files.

Download:
Windows 64 bit15.3 MB
Windows 32 bit14.2 MB

I dont know how to handle the msvc*.dll files. Microsoft says its allowed to share it with the Application, but its recommend to let the user install the Visual C++ Redistributable Package. So the dll's can be updated via Windows Update. But I think the most user will not use a program that requires to install another one.

You are right, the default of the block color is now white.

It requires the QT framework 5.4, and qmake version 5.
It seems you are using Qt 4.8.
update to Qt 5.4 should solve the problem
