I am trying to convert a map I have in Civ2 of Middle-earth to Freeciv, so I
wrote a program that reads a bitmap, and assigns land-types to different
colours on the bitmap. It goes through all the pixels, and writes the
savefile. The bitmaps are screenshots of the minimap of Civ2's editor (with
slightly modified colours). I know that there are no details as mountains on
the minimap, but it saves time. The minimap in the editor is a rectangle, as
the map is in the game. Now my question is: how can I edit the bitmap (if
possible in PSP itself, that's a lot easier) so that I have the map in
Freeciv just as I have the map in Civ2? (I know the minimap in Freeciv will
display it wrong then, but that doesn't really matter)
Tomorrow I'll try to see if I can do something with your information (I've
got other things to do right now)
