Petopia interactive map

#1 Unread post by zedxrgal » Mon Sep 05, 2016 2:00 pm

I had a thought. A crazy thought.

Would it be possible to have an interactive map on Petopia??
Like click the world (i.e. Draenor) and the map pulls up with each zone
You click on a zone and it pops up a list of every tamable beast in that zone.
Admittedly ..................... this is just like what Warcraft Pets has.

Where I thought of this was last night while going through high mountain I was wondering what tamable pets were in that specific zone.

I don't know if this is even doable without a ton of work or at all.

Thoughts?

Advanced search lets you search by zone :)

I'm not sure about the map. Does WCP have a graphic map version or just the two selectors? If they can do a map I'm sure I can find out how it's done since we're friends :)

Otherwise, the two selector boxes should be easy enough. We currently have one, compiled from the pet data, i.e. we don't have a hard-coded list of zones, it just takes the names from what is entered for each pet. I'd just have to make a hard list and link each zone with a continent / world.

Well buggers. Thanks GormanGhaste! :hug: Not sure how I missed that. :oops:

Wain - They do not just a drop down menu.

What's in place is perfectly fine. :D I shan't lie the map would be cool but probably more hassle than it's worth. Especially if it wouldn't be used much.

I feel a little embarrassed. Lol

Don't be embarrassed! Organizing the zones by continent is a good idea--the list is getting long enough to be a little unwieldy.

If that's what you need then cool :)
