Hi all, first time posting.

I have been messing around with the map editor for the last few weeks, using Illustrator to make the polygons and exporting to an SVG file and copying and pasting the coordinates. This gets old pretty fast, so I put together an applescript to take the heavy lifting out of the process. I have bundled into an OSX app. So any map makers using OSX wiling to give it a go you can get it here. https://github.com/lukejcam/svg2VoxMap
Let us know how it works out for you

Cheers,
Luke

The old handwork tracing should be part of making maps. First the fun of making a theme, and then the awful punishment of hand tracing. Yin and Yang. Good and Bad. Adam and Eve. Democrats and republicans.

The app is a good idea, but map making won't be the same.

Luke, thank you for posting this! There's a similar tool somebody made for Lux maps, and I know a number of different people used it.
