    Default (BIEM)-Better In-Game Encyclopedia Map - overhaul for Shogun2, RotS & FotS(final)

    [Release]
    The FotS map is finally 'complete'!

    w00t


    Flashin' light stuff removed from the web-based rots-gfx (trademark shogun 2 ROTS..looks a bit weird though, but that's not my call ^^)

    very Minor WIP/update (maybe )
    - province-links (in case someone wants to read the description..)

    - check all current overlays and re-edit them

    - Maybe I'll convert all 3 maps to Flash, but I haven't 'played' with actionscript for quite some time. But would be a nice training for me ^^ and there are way more possibilities.

    - Sekigahara
    __________________________________________________________

    Final Web-based version:

    Shogun 2 (new hosting url)

    http://wicked-chibi.ninja/region/BIE...r-edition).zip

    All (external) links disabled and removed some Encyclopedia-stlye thingies!


    And I really hope, ordinary is fine with the change, as I still got no response; his [BETA] BIEM can be found:

    http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=438482

    Changelog:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Version 2.3 final (wealthmonger-edition )
    - some overlays re-edited and more anchor-points added
    - Clans added for every province
    - added Shogunate/Imperial-attitude to every province for Turn 1 (Info-text icon)
    - 'region-specials'-links are working (every building linked to Tier I, besides Machines & Cotton)
    - (web-based version updated)

    Version 2.2b
    - ninja-fix to Jozai (wrong province)

    Version 2.2a
    - added full clan description
    - clan-icon are now linked to the encyclopaedia clan-page
    - added some more anchor-points to several image-maps (only 8 provinces 'fine-tuned')
    - 2 minor text-fixes

    Version 2.2:
    - RotS map uses fertility colors again *hurray* and I removed the lines pointing towards the province, they highlight anyway
    - some changes done to the FotS map, clan icons don't look like they are 'floating' above the sea
    - added a 'farm' icon on the FotS map (looks bit odd, might change it someday) in the bottom right corner->quick overview for the farm-upgrades based on the fertility
    - clan infos included
    - resource&building infos included
    - some CSS changes, so all 3 maps fits the new encyclopedia style without scrolling (smaller footer, footer links removed as well - no one needs them anyway)
    - the resource-links might be a bit overkill, but that's not my fault - all specialities & resources included
    - decided to not add the 'Happiness' penalty on some descriptions or buildings, as it'd be brain-overkill and it's not really needed

    Version 2.0a:
    -
    early FotS BETA included- highlight less transparent
    - minor file-changes (links fixed..I guess)

    Version 1.1b:
    - color-code-tag included
    - RotS map uses a darker blue for better visibility
    - Shogun2 map highlight for clan-icons added

    Version 1.1:
    There was a ninja-fix shortly after going beta, but it did only affected IE 7/8 and not the ingame-map- so no need to re-download, if you don't intend to check the map in IE <=8.0

    Version 1:


    - (BIEM) includes a separate Rise of the Samurai Resource Map
    - several changes to information in the original file made (removal of 'wall of text' and better clan info)
    - Ikko Ikki included
    - new RotS-Resource map featuring the [BIEM] design
    - misc. code/script/links changes
    - compatible to CA's "Bardi" Font-family again


    Installation:
    To install, unzip directly into the encyclopedia folder, making sure to replace the other files when prompted. ("...\Steam\SteamApps\common\total war shogun 2\data\encyclopedia\" in case of the Steam version)
    Apply changes to all files in case [BIEM] is already installed, cause there were some changes made.

    Update:
    Updates needs to be unpacked in the 'encyclopedia' directory as well - 2 files were changed (regions_boshin.html,regionmap_boshun.css & an icon added)
    (The update can be applied to any 2.2x version)

    How to change the highlight-color:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    If you don't like blue for whatever reason, and I used the default value too, you can 'easily' edit the .html file. (I really don't want to motivate you to edit the *.js file )

    - Open either regions_gempei.html, regions_shogun.html or regions_boshin.html in e.g. Notepad
    - v1.1b+ includes already the 'fillcolor' tag, so you only need to change the color
    - look for $('#outline').maphilight();
    - change the whole string to:
    $('#outline').maphilight({
    fillColor: '000000'
    });

    - for 000000 you can add any web-color code, and a really cool online-tool can be found at http://www.colorpicker.com/ [000000 or black doesn't look that bad, specially on my map]
    - save & enjoy

    Credits:
    Hayabusa Sushi for *hmm* for major help just that! [thank you so much! Makes things much easier for me....]

    No problem Did now double-check the online-preview, but honestly don't know why the 'old' file caused issues while refreshing Maybe it was indeed the header and it was trying to look for an index-file instead.

    Great work, but you should have it be just the map, like the original version. Having the map bigger was great. You should include a fertility chart for easy reference when to upgrade your farms first. Most people know, but its just a nice finished product then. Also, the original version never any any Iron or Horses in the bottom left panel for easy access. Might want to update that if you can.

    Cool beans! But one question: I know that the colors on the Shogun 2 map indicate the fertility level of the soil, but what do the colors indicate on the Rise map?

    Will do a new map they are currently showing the clan-colors but I'll revert it to the fertility-map again. (it was just an experiment *whistles*)
    Need a working fog of war removal for FotS so I can datamine the new ressources, already got a decent map from the pack files. And it looks like I can abuse the included overlay map for the mouse-rollovers.

    @Araknir
    My French is very limited to roughly 0 words Though I could extract the text-related stuff and attach the text file...if one wanna translate it you'll get your French version ^^ (or 'webtranslator' but don't blame me then...I've seen English stuff translated to German...oh boy, that's awkward )

    sry double post, but I am just lazy.

    I'm a bit puzzled by some of your suggestions ^^ What about the iron/horse stuff? I know they don't highlight on his map, so I crosslinked the 2 trade-spots to the icon as well, as there are also province-based iron&horse ressources.
    Ah, I think I get it...(coffee is currently sliding thru my brain so I'm about to getting awake^^) You wanna have additional icons for the sea-ressources. Problem was the space I was given, I didn't wanna mess up the sorting order and the icons will be very small if I had to add 2 additional slots.
    As mentioned, Iron&horse do highlight on the province-button.

    Further, I was experimenting with a color-chart (some random corner ^^) so you it'd highlight the provinces as well as putting in a farm-description in the text-box. But I encountered some limitations in the javascript and I got a load of errors ^^ Though I figured the problems and was a bit 'brain-offline'.

    Anyway, about the coloring - was just an experiment and that's why I needed input. Will revert it back then, so both maps will be identical.
    Currently trying to get the fog-o-war removal working for FotS, so there will be Shogun 2 and both Addons covered with a working map.

    They are all part of the pre-order, afaik there was even a steam limited version , which unlocks all 3 clans. Mine got only 'Tsu'
    There are three clans that can be chosen depending on where the player pre-orders:

    - The Saga – industrialists who tend to look to the future when it comes to both war and politics and have aligned themselves with the West, getting access to artillery and to modern warships;
    - The Tsu – well known strategist who also have a link with the population of Japan they are aligned with the Emperor and use both ninja and assassins to offset the superiority of the enemy forces;
    - The Obama – they can rely on their population to pay higher than usual taxes which gives them a strong base to evolve and expand however they want.
    Dunno about Sendai, have used the Encyclopedia clans..

    edit: according @totalwar.com this might be the next DLC clan.
