Is this a script to generate a starmap based on a dataset from Sarna?
Never had much, grew up with nothing
But the music, well it was something
Been down and out, I've been on top of the world,
World that keeps on spinning on a turntable.

I think so. I can't remember what the dataset was but it was a perl script on here if memory serves correct quite some time ago

Having read the forums over about 5 times... it was a pearl script form what I remember. Never used it myself.

Okay it would be here...

I will try to dig around some more.


EDIT: In the archive you can do a search for Perl... Old info, hope it helps!

I've created one. Has some caveats (best to be done on linux, but should work in windows too).

Map script: http://www.alphahpg.com/wp-content/uplo ... ratemap.js

Example CSV: http://www.alphahpg.com/wp-content/uplo ... 10/map.csv

You need: node js and a module called xmlbuilder.

How to run it: node generatemap.js map.csv > planets.xml
