New structure in handling of map_data.sii

Post by BenganJ » November 5th, 2019, 4:21 pm


======= Information on how we ought to use the ========
=================== MAP_DATA.SII ===================
================ file in our mods here ================


The map_data.sii file contains a lot of settings controlling how the
World Map view and Job Market views will look and be handled. This is
how it looks default in the game.

SCS's map_data.sii:

Code: Select all

SiiNunit
{
map_data ; .map.data {

	road_color:			0xFF707070 	//Advisor map undiscovered route
	road_discovered_color:		0xFF4cc6ff	//Advisor map discovered route

	job_road_discovered_color:	0xFF2b3436	//Job market map discovered route
	world_road_color:		0xFF707070	//Main map undiscovered route
	world_road_discovered_color:	0xFF4cc6ff 	//Main map discovered route

	prefab_color:				0xFF737373	//Undiscovered prefab driveable areas
	prefab_obstacle_color:			0xFF333333	//Undiscovered prefab buildings

	prefab_discovered_color:		0xFF98CAEB	//Discovered prefab driveable areas
	prefab_obstacle_discovered_color:	0xFF3ba2e0	//Discovered prefab buildings
	prefab_grass_discovered_color:		0xFF95CAA9	//Discovered prefab grass

	navigation_highlight_color:	0xFF0C42DF	//Navigation path color, highligted segment

	navigation_slow_road_penalty: 5.0
}

}
From now on I will use a totally new way of using this data in my mods, making
it more flexible and less prune to interference between other mods. This is how
that information will be structured in my mods.

My map_data.sii structure:

Code: Select all

map_data/ ;folder with the following content.
 --> _OF/ ;folder containing map_data.sii file in the old format, with all data. For comarison to other map_data.sii files.
 ------> map_data.sii
 --> map_color_config.sui"
 --> zoom_uplift_config.sui"
 --> player_size_config.sui"
 --> road_size_factor_config.sui"
 --> full_detail_config.sui"
 --> icon_size_config.sui"
 --> company_icon_size_config.sui"
 --> camera_limits_config.sui"
 --> map_items_flags_config.sui"
 --> map_3d_camera_pitch_config.sui"
 --> ui_map_register_config.sui"
 --> ui_map_camera_config.sui"
 --> ui_map_always_draw_city_config.sui"
 --> navigation_params_config.sui"
map_data.sii ;the original file, but modified as specified below.
NOTE: That structure is located in /def folder as usual!

The modified map_data.sii file will be a file with constant content, a standard file like this:

Code: Select all

SiiNunit
{
map_data ; .map.data {

@include "/def/map_data/map_color_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/zoom_uplift_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/player_size_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/road_size_factor_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/full_detail_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/icon_size_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/company_icon_size_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/camera_limits_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/map_items_flags_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/map_3d_camera_pitch_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/ui_map_register_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/ui_map_camera_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/ui_map_always_draw_city_config.sui"
@include "/def/map_data/navigation_params_config.sui"

}

}
With that specified, a person making a mod, to for example change the colors of the roads in World Map view
can just put the file /def/map_data/map_color_config.sui in his mod and change the various colors in it to
suit his taste. Cool huh? Likewise with the other categories of settings, thereby making just the needed
changes and the minimal impact on the data.

Here I will try to maintain a list of mods, including maps, that use this concept.

Code: Select all

ETS2_LAMB_UNIV_EURASIA_PLAIN_BG_MAP.scs ;A plain background, in SCS style, for the [color=#FFBF00]World Map view[/color] and [color=#FFBF00]Job Market views[/color].
Please, feel free to comment on this new handling of the map_data.sii file!

@ExtremorPL

As you are a map maker of an addon, are you going to include
a map_data.sii file in your final product? Just curious, as my
view is that an addon should NOT mess with the data in that
file! Unless the map needs a greater area to pan the in-game
map view, but then this scheme is good because it's not needed
to change any other parameters than the camera limits. On the
other hand, if people are using my BG's they will get panning
areas enough, I think! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Main maps should have that file included though in the case
of people running them without any zoom mod or they could
demand that people use one, but to be sure .....! :D

@Sbaba

Well, next I'm going to convert all my other mods using the map_data.sii file, so keep an eye
on the World Background topic here! :D
