    current version: 2.1

    Oceanic is a mapping software, designed to store and display on a map any location related information. It is an Adobe Flash based, stand-alone application for Windows that doesn't require installation.

    All maps and images are stored as external graphic files, all information and its visualization rules is stored in external XML files.

    The main features of oceanic include:

    • Maps with TPs and Revivals for all existing continents inside EU

    • Megazoom: up to 80 times zoom of the original map

    • Loading data from multiple files, which allows to separate information on private/public, geographical, time, activity or any other basis, and to share it with others

    • Fast working with large maps (up, but not limited to 5000px x 5000px)

    • Reloading data from chosen files and reloading file list from a folder "on the fly" without exiting the tool

    • Simple built-in entry editor that helps to visually create entries and generates XML code ready for insertion in to a data file

    • Fully customizable appearance of entries

    • Automatic generation of Revival zones

    Arkadia update (16.03.2012)

    Oceanic is updated with Nusul and Oratan Slasher spawn locations.

    It's a kind of "soft launch" because it's not 100% confirmed but still better than nothing.

    Just wanted to say thank you to the Arkadia team for going to such lengths to put such lovely information and detail into their package for this application - it's a really nice reference to have. And i see more is to come later too!

    For Endy though: usually I work on screens with large resolutions (1920x1200 eg) and the application looks quite small on screens like that. Is there any way we can have a way to resize the interface screen to a larger size if we wish?

    All data in the Oceanic has been collected and assembled by me (97%) plus a few contributions from players and A-Team.
    So yeah, I went to a lot of lengths to assemble the package in the glory of its detail.. thank you Endy.. you are welcome.. enjoy.

    The market price of Oceanic as it is now is about $ 30k, so I invested a hell of a lot into it.. with zero return.
    If I will ever have a commercial incentive to continue its development then probably multisize interface could be on the list along with some other features.
