@idivait i wish they'd add more skills in future. they've got something like the GW2 CDI running - and they listen a lot

I hope that wildstar survives
I can only think of how many people put their soul into that content...

(main reason why i play esper: i can switch melee/range any time :D)
it will survive
it has it's main core since the closed betas, most of those people won't leave
also, with so much fluctuation on the market, people come back every now and then
w* as a game has a solid base, but it still needs some tweaks to make it really awesome in the long run
like all those long term per-character achievements GW1 had

car showed 39.5C when I got in. Not the best choice of parking spot
so magnetite shards are lodestones

so apparently tombraider got rebooted... I'm so switched off i didn't notice that.
I still remember the clunky Edios version..

Jun 23 2016 18:23
wow, Alex, i'm baffled :D
you don't know the recent 2 TR releases?
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 18:24
I may have been aware of the first one of the reboots, but the second is news to me
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 18:24
it'ts out for almost a year now :D
since a half for PC
you better get them both during the sale
wait
i might have a spare key for TR2013, but no promises
ChieftainAlex

speaking of which, WvW maps..

Jun 23 2016 19:29

I'm certainly not going to say it's "impossible", it's something we'd like to do, but it's not something that we'll be solving in the near future.

i think i've heard that somewhere else before XD

in other news, last.fm just hit 100bn scrobbles today and they do fun stuff with that data: http://www.last.fm/features/post/2259045:feature:a5c81002-4209-43b0-b47a-7f1a024bb21e

gw2w wvw vistas for the current maps should all be there now. Desert borderlands gets no love because its out of rotation
can't see any duplicate ids this time either
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:15
got a list with the current data, not that i get outdated stuff again? :D
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:16
if you can hold on a few more hours i'm going to go through the names and make them consistent between maps
e.g. "Blue World Border Vista" vs "Blue Border Vista"
making these names up, so gotta pick one
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:17
these are things you could do later, too - just that the main data is up-to-date
i can't verify as i don't have gw2 installed
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:17
o.o

@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:18
but then again, i could quickly write an import from the wiki's API
btw. i haven't bothered with map controls at all yet
i'm currently gathering data and get the geojson sorted
because it makes map and layer handling super easy
if i had the map ids for everything, i could even toggle icons for individual maps
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:35
if http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/User:Chieftain_Alex/sandbox reads "304 vistas found." at the top, + you can find the text "green world border vista" then the page is up to date
is "geojson" just the points that go on the map?
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:36
no, it holds all the map data
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:37
so a combination response with all the stuff from all map apis + the hardcoded names?
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:37
just fork whe widget repo and run the example, uncomment comment lines like you wish
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:38
oh its the format. right. so that has a name..
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:38
yea, i merge in most of your data during runtime
this creates a featurecollection that you can feed directly into L.geoJson()
and geojson is fun with leaflet http://leafletjs.com/examples/geojson.html
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:44
so essentially its a standardised format that allows you to pass all the gw2 map data into the leaflet at once, without separately defining the addition of each marker?
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:45
yea, uniform data all the way
you just tell leaflet what to do in certain cases
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:53
oh hey @ChieftainAlex one of my ideas was to load some SMW data via the API into the infobox
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:54
didn't i say before that I thought this would just slow down everything
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:54
how'd do i do this best? (haven't done anything with the SMW API yet)
not during page load
via ajax
into the map popups
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:55
maps for what
poi / areas?
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:55
like infobox data from stuff
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jun 23 2016 20:56
nice and vague
smiley
@codemasher
Jun 23 2016 20:56
/smw attributes
for anything that has a link in a popup
basically
