I am making a texted based browser game based in the time of the roman empire.
But I am totally lost making my map for it.
I don't know if any of you know games like TribalWars, Travian, Ikariam etc., but they got the overlook (seeing the world divided in continents - and the villages divided in coordinates like (354|465) (x|y).
I would like something like that.
I would like to divide my own graphic into grids - load some information from my MySQL Database (to collect the info about my locations of the villages) - and then show it on my page.
Oh, and my problems is like.. They do only show their map in a 7*7 grid of squares or something like that - like a zoom into the villages.
Do anyone got something about this? Got a question about anything?
Í would apreciate any help! Thank you!
EDIT: By the way, I found this page

It is actually something like that - but I can't get this one to work unfortunately. :s
