Hi i've use you exemple code and changed the location of files and folder but when i try to generate a map it say :


Loading world...
Unhandled exception:

System.InvalidOperationException: The world format is not supported.   
at Terraria.World..ctor(String path)   
at TerrariaMapTool.MapGenerator.Generate()   
at TerrariaMapTool.Program.Main(String[] args)

This is really a nice Map generator if you could help me out i would appreciate

There could be one of two reasons you are getting this:

First, I wrote this before the 1.0.2 patch and have been running it against a world created before this patch. It is possible that the format changed with the new update and worlds created after the update may not work.

The second reason would be that you're running a map that was generated from the alpha version. The generator can only support worlds created by the released steam version.


If you could share your world file somewhere for download I could try to run it tonight and reproduce the issue. That's the quickest way to see what is wrong. (Also suggest a new todo, print out to world info when the tool starts up. I'll definitely add that at least tonight.)

I think it's 'first' - this generates a map fine on a world I created pre-1.0.2, but not for any of the worlds I've created post-1.0.2. Do you have an plans for updating this to work with the most recent patch? :)

I'll create a new world tonight and figure out what the hiccup is. Shouldn't be to difficult to fix.

Awesome! Much love :D

I've made a tutorial video showing people how to use this - should drive some traffic here and get you some downloads. :)

Much appreciated. I find the documentation part the tedious aspect of these projects. ;) Maybe I'll get around to created a GUI. At the very least generate the stub html file for people.

I'm on the latest version of Terraria didn't play before the last update so ma maps are all after patch 1.0.2
