  • Multiplayer Interactive map

    So I found this awesome new tool:

    "ps2.fisu.pw/map/real/" <Copy paste into web-browser

    This is a interactive map, that you can draw, put symbols on, measure, and put text with additional information linked to the map(pop, VP details, notifications)
    Multiple users can draw on this map at the same time via entering the secret key, those who dont have the secret key can only watch.
    This has super great potential for everyone, especially leadership as it allows for PL's to draw out maps of plans, whilst the members watch.

    Setup in a nutshell (instructions on the FAQ page are more detailed or clearer)

    1. Assure that you have, at the top left, selected PC version of the site.
    2. Click "World" and select EMERALD (or the server you're on)
    -You should now see a map, with several stats on the borders of the page
    3. Click the R button;
    a.You can now create or join a Room
    b.Rooms have three keys you must use:

    NAME: name of room
    SECRETCODE: this code should only be given to those you want writing on your map
    PASSWORD: password to enter
    All of it is CASE SENSITIVE

    Once you setup your room, invite others who will use the Join and fill in the areas with your information.
    Tools included are:
    Markers: for some reason, liberators are the only one missing.
    Drawing: with a really nice colour selector.
    Ruler: Measure the distance between two points.
    Text area: To add more details to something.
    Clear buttons: Two types, clear a specific from the list above, or clear everything
    You can delete anything by hitting your Delete Key
    Each tool has a Hotkey for quick change between

    This programs has its bugs still, and its not perfect.
    If you want me to edit anything to this post, please send me a PM.

    Thanks for posting!
    This looks like a really interesting way for PL to communicate with SLs! I don't know if we want everyone on here because I can picture the whole squad being "ALT/TAB"ed out looking at this when an enemy kills us. But really cool tool! Could also be cool for training videos for PLs because of how easy it is to draw and mark things on there.
    The question foremost in my mind is "what will bring the most tactical fun to the server?"

      It definitely works for people who have secondary monitors and can play in windowed mode.

          Sheesh, three monitors? Why do I get the feeling you're also being fitted for a flight suit and helmet so you can completely immerse yourself in Star Citizen :D

                  That is actually somewhat common for professional pilots so I hear.

                      It would be immersive in a way to use a tablet with the interactive map on it... (iPad or Nexus) etc. (pilots use a knee board)

                      But it seems we will soon get drawing tools in game, so that could add some meta to the leading game.

                      I love the wooden cockpit,
                      I think my next investment into immersive gaming will be into an Oculus Rift (or Vive) VR HMD that will simulate the entire cockpits (for Elite, DCS)
                      And I hear PS2 can be played a bit inside VR using VorpX software .
