Re: [nbos] RFC: AS2 Sector Map Style Definition

I wish I was at liberty to let the group see the Star Trek map. I'll ask
my customer if I can put some views up on my website. The 3D sector
makes a nonsense of the "official" charts in terms of indicating
relative locations of particular systems but using different coloured 10
lt yr spheres of influence, The general locations of the Klingon and
Romulan Empires show up quite well.

Glad it's sparking some ideas, though - even though I can't yet help
with the scripting.

Cheers,

Mike

In fairness, what you're doing (The ST map) was kind of the inspiration
for this, Mike. The map I'm working on is entirely homebrew, but yours
is clearly filled with different governments and the like.

Script writing (yet?) but, if you think I can do anything else to help,
say the word.

Don't need to be a programmer to add your two cents, Mike. Your input is
definitely appreciated as you're one of the most active AS2 posters. As
it goes, I'd like to corner Ed and ask him some specifics about what's
being exposed to WSH (Windows Scripting Host) as I have found the API
docs to be a little... lite.
