Warcraft relations map

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Warcraft relations map is a map of relations between most important characters, clans, and artifacts until the end of The Frozen Throne storyline. In some cases (e.g. Arthas, Illidan), relations between characters are so complicated that it might be useful to see it in a graphic form - that's why this project was created.

Project core is written in DOT language with significant use of C preprocessor, and compiled with Graphviz.

Use of C preprocessor actually makes the sourcecode readable and meaningful. It allows constructions like:

"Arthas" -> "King Teranas" [KILLS]

where KILLS is defined via #define clausule at the very beggining of the code:

#define KILLS color="red" label="X" fontcolor="red" fontsize="11" arrowhead="vee" arrowtail="vee"

It reminds HTML + CSS coding.

Almost everything is based on Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos manual and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne games storyline. Some informations were taken here from Wowpedia.
