might get one to check and see if you could increase the pcre.backtrack_limit
for some reason, i think it's what causes some of the wiki's 502s

i officially hate timezones now
and how stupidly some libraries interact with it
Also myspace data breach, wtf they still exist, and wtf I had an account there

the solution to the semantic forms problem is simple of course, disable the "Form" namespace on the wiki.

what do you do when you can't decide on armor for your light human male? ask the API, then automate all the things! http://imgur.com/a/LSmf5

I'd have deleted the male human and started another race.

this sounds appealing

only way would be to extract the original tiles and convert them to png instead jpg

@codemasher I mean, compression artifacts aside, the tile generator literally is just a program that automates taking screenshots of the world map UI control. It can totally output png's but ... that'd be an order of magnitude more data.

I should look into making the tile generator be able to upload to S3 directly (and while it generates tiles) though -- that'd make the file size issue significantly less painful.

ah, i thougt you'd been using the original tiles somehow. but yes. png tiles would look much better
the uhh tiles are dynamically generated from a handful of ... mostly build-time generated textures I think? Which are generated from some tool that renders out the maps or something. It's too complicated for my feeble mind :<
But the compositing bit is done in real-time

could you generate, say the wvw region, as png to test and see if it makes a significant difference? (it does for sure :D)
the total size is basically an order of magnitude larger
right now the bottleneck is writing the data out to disk, then uploading it to S3 (the upload bit is currently a manual step -_-)
if the tile generator can skip the disk and just upload to S3 then I'll probably just sneak up .png tiles too

oh, i thought just one zoom level (max) on a test server perhaps
it's not currently that granular
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 13 2016 20:14
just to have a side-by-side view
it does entire continents :<
with all zoom levels

The.. Mistworld? Miscworld?
I'm sold on Zommoros' Corporealm, to be honest.

I imagine anyone who managed to get there would immediately be pierced by a billion greatswords
I'm now considering /v2/zomorros/greatswords which exposes how many greatswords in total have been flushed

Wish there were stats for the top 10 items or so
That'd be amazing if there actually was a tally around
Pretty sure we log out an event every time the mystic forge is used, so it's theoretically possible.
The whitelist works by ingesting the event logs, so I'd just have to run some queries against the historical events to pre-seed it, then we'd have semi-realtime data.
Albeit of questionable merit.

@zeeZ
Jun 13 2016 22:29
you want to run it against three and a half years of greatswords?
well yeah
the bounty of zomorros knows no bounds

@zeeZ
Jun 13 2016 22:35
being able to conjure all kinds of random stats just by prefixing it with "computer.." would be amazing
piken was on a wvw raid for lumber before I left, charging right past the keep lords and going for the lumber nodes, I wonder how much they collected

or how many precursors have been flushed :P
Christian
@zeeZ
Jun 13 2016 22:57
and how many legendaries
is that even possible? I wouldn't know
I'd have to look at what's logged out, but I would expect both the inputs and output to be in there
