As far as I can tell, Preacherman is the primary innovator in cool maps.

It'd be nice to stamp a map with info on creator, last mod timestamp, name and version. It'd be cool to show the creator's name tastefully as a hilited overlay somewhere...

Oh yeah,

PS. It'd also be nice to mod the download algorithm to allow background JPGs

Cogden,

you can check map author info using textedit. just open up the saved map

the "backgrounds" are jpegs. put them in your theme folder. make sure they are close to the size of the map
