Map editing ( opinion poll of sorts )
« on: February 22, 2018, 04:02:55 AM »
Hi guys,
What I'm interested in is what sort of a map editor user you are likely to be.

If you take a look at the changelog you'll notice I've done a bit of an experiment proving the practicality of including some extra functionality via an external application.
Essentially, you'd use InkScape to trace or draw stuff which could be incorporated in a map.
This is something which is fairly easy for me to enable and would get you functionality way beyond what will happen otherwise.

Here are my questions:

1) How enthusiastic a scenario designer are you likely to be?
On a scale of 0 to 5 where 0 is "Never - I will just use other people's or buy them" to 5 "Always - this is why I like General Staff".

2) How enthusiastic a map designer are you likely to be? ( Some people may want to re-use existing maps ).
On a scale of 0 to 5 where 0 is "Never - I will just use other people's or buy them" to 5 "Always - this is why I like General Staff".

3) How familiar with graphics design and such apps are you?
On a scale of 0 to 5 where 0 is "Not used one" to 5 "This is my job or hobby".

4) If it offers you flexibility, how likely are you to get down and dirty with xaml?
On a scale of 0 to 5 where 0 is "I'm never going to bother" to 5 "I already know it or I love learning stuff like that".
