I am altering the coastlines.txt, but in a high-tech way ;P

Text editors can't plot the co-ordinates, and auto-update the graph when I change some values. Plus, I can save it as a text file with the right syntax afterwards anyway. So there!

and there are ~15000 lines...

Nah. A text editor, for now, to get used to the basics ;) Then I'll have a go with a more detailed coastline, probably using a spreadsheet, because it's easier than Maple...

Anyone wanna let me know what all of these random numbers mean, from left to right, in the coordinates file?

1) Nothing is easier than Maple.
2) Even if the above statement is not true, Maple is the best.
3) Even if neither of the above statements is true, Maple is wicked 1337!

Maple is "wicked 1,337," as the youths of today would put it. But with Excel (or indeed OpenOffice.org Calc, which I use,) you just select all, press Graph and click a couple of buttons, wait for the computer to struggle, and you get a little map of the world :)

Thanks for the link, Montyphy

Seems as if there is a plethora of ways to extract the coastlines ~ but how about a paint-ish application for creating them? :P

Modernday Global Thermonuclear War!

Postby Teneb » Thu Oct 05, 2006 1:47 am

Factions

The United States of America
The Federation of Russia
The People's Republic of China
The European Alliance of the United Kingdom and France
The Islamic Caliphate of Pakistan and Iran
The Indian Republic

Would be cool, but odd-men out and quite too small as well
The State of Israel
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea

I think it would be awesome if we had modernday population figures for each of these countries, including their cities. Not only that, but their realtime nuclear arsenals, airforces and fleets as well (well proportional at least when it comes to units).

I'd be very interested in playing a realistic scenario. Doesn't matter what the plot is like. The strategy would probably involve all nations trying to take out the USA (with Russia launching a majority of the nukes) while taking super-tactical potshots at the coastline with subs. After the US is reduced in power, everyone goes at it. Should be fun to see if people can work with imbalanced sides.
