Imperators,

soon we will provide you with new SVG empire maps.
These maps offer a few advantages over the old static image maps:

1. You can zoom in and out (useful for large empires)
2. They are smaller, thus downloaded faster
3. As they are in .xml format, some useful data (such as coordinates) can be extracted by imperators knowing how to handle technical things Grin

Please go ahead and install an SVG Viewer in your browser, for example you could take a look here: http://www.adobe.com/svg/ (you can download viewers or check if your browser already knows how to handle .svg)

Bye,
Maelstroem

The SVG maps are now active.

You can get the browser plugin (necessary only for older Microsoft IE versions) under http://adobe.com/svg

There seems to be a problem right now when zooming via the menu.
We will fix this as soon as we know how to do it Grin

Until then you can zoom and navigate easier and faster using the following hotkeys:

CTRL: zoom in
CTRL+SHIFT: zoom out
ALT: pan(move)

Have fun!

Bye,
Maelstroem

Iit seems, that we were to quick activiting SVG *only*.
There appear to be different problems with different browsers, so we will reactivate the old general map. We will also soon make the SVG map additionally downloadable, so we can fix the problem step-by-step.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Maelstroem

You can now access *both* SVG and normal empire overview maps (using the two corresponding command buttons above the normal navigation view).

We strongly suggest, that you upgrade to svg, as the "old" empire overview map will soon be limited to 6000x6000 pixels (lightyears) resolution and 8 bit color depth.

Bye,
Maelstroem
