One minor correction: the blank map isn't transparent because it's black; it's transparent because it's alpha layer is all set to 0% (fully transparent). There could be a pretty picture of a flower in the blank map .dds, but as long as the alpha layer was all 0%, you wouldn't see it in game.

Edit: In reply to the post below this... I AM Haliken. I shouldn't have signed up under that name, and a little ways into our map thread I changed logins.

You can add your custom mapstyles to eq2map2\_User_MapStyles.xml without fear of the updater overwriting it.

Can also be used by users of course to add maps posted on these forums which are not yet on the updater (although we'll try to add them faster in the future).

If it does not work, you likely installed it incorrectly. Always try a clean install before reporting bugs.

Default Map size

I have noticed with the new map UI that some of the SOE built in maps seem to be much larger. Is this something that we can take advantage of when creating new maps or are the custom ones created by the user community limited to the previous size.

Thx

In theory we also support maps in 1600x1200, but we didn't write that down anywhere since last time I discussed it Dolby he wasn't sure about the bandwidth costs. However, in the meantime we started compressing everything which should reduce bandwidth usage considerably so maybe he'll be ok with it now. I'll ask him.
