What is Diplomap?

Diplomap is a Diplomacy-Onlinesoftware which creates maps. With the map, you can create orders with some mouseclicks and send them to a Judge.

What do I need to use Diplomap?

Diplomap creates maps in SVG. To visualize this format, you need a modern Browser (e.g. Firefox 1.5, Opera 9, ...), with SVG native support. For browsers without SVG support (Internet Explorer before version 9), Diplomap can create maps in PNG format. You can't create orders with PNG maps.

How to use Diplomap?

Order Map

Simply Drag&Drop the Judge Output into the same named field, and click Diplomap. You will get the map. Many variants are supported ( 'Standard' is used for 1898, Fleet_Rome, Shift_Around, Shift_Left and Shift_Right also. 'Hundred' is used for H3, H31 and H32 also. 'Renaissance' is used for Renaissance1 and 2 also).

Adding orders

Below the map there are Buttons. Which one can be seen there, depends to the season. Select the order type there. The next paragraphs speaks about units, armies, fleets or areas. But it doesn't matter, what you will click there. A click to the area "Rome" will be interpreted exactly like a click to an unit there.

hold Hold
Simply click to a unit to hold

move Move
First click to the moving unit, then the target area.
If an army moves into an ocean, Diplomap interprets a convoy and expects more areas, until a land area is clicked.

support Support
Click the supporting unit, then the supported unit. If the supported unit gets an movement order, click to their target area, otherwise click the supported unit a second time.

convoy Convoy
Select the convoying fleet first, then the convoyed army, then the target area.

transform Trafo (Machiavelli: Convert)
Simply click to the area. This order is shown even when the game isn't a trafo game!

disband Disband, Remove
simply click to the disbanding unit (how surprising!).

Build Unit Build
Click to the area, where an army, fleet, garisson or wing should be build (Garrison and Wing are shown only when the game supports them).

Undo Order Undo
To delete an order, given as described above, click to this unit.

navigation Navigation
The navigation buttons can show older game listings. 'RES' shows the movement results for the current game listing.

Zoom Zoom
Zomm switches between double and normal map scale.

Send orders to a Judge

Adding orders creates a text, wich you can edit however you want. You can send the text to a Judge directly. Don't forget your E-Mail then.

Personal settings

You can choose a color for Land, Seaareas and for Switzerland. Any color, wich is allowed by CSS, can be used.

There are also several unit styles to choose.
