MUSHclient GUI: 18-Nov-2012

It's been over two years since I released the last version of the God Wars II plugin.  I finally recovered the development version from my backups (from my old dead laptop) and extended it to properly use the big map.  As you can see from the following screenshot, there's now a small circular icon in the top left corner of the top map, and a downward pointing arrow in the top right corner:

If you click the circular icon, the big map opens, and you can actually use it to plot a course - clicking on the map sets your target destination to that position.  The small cross in thhe top right corner of the map closes it.  The big map also draws a line between your current position (the yellow circle) and your destination (the red circle), like so:

For the time being, the big map is only available within the realm.  Thus if you enter another location, the circle icon will vanish:

The original maps were fine for my old laptop, but as you can see from the above screenshots there's very little space for the avatars underneath them - and it's even worse on my netbook.  So that's where the arrow icon (in the top right corner of the top map) comes in.  In full sized mode, the maps look like this:

But if you click the arrow, the maps shrink:

Note that the arrow icon is now pointing upwards instead of downwards.
