I think the tools makes a lot of sense! It's open source software, so I imagine it could be made to work for Q3, with integration to LvL. That would be nice!
However, the tool has the problem of being a direct competitor of the website. We do not want to discourage visits to this site, naturally. But, the tool could be improved to make it interact directly with the website! For instance, you could add comments and vote from the software itself. This can then be synchronised with the website. LivePreview could be integrated to it. In other words, LvL made into a software!
Impossible? Unnecessary? Undesirable? What do you think?
Personally, I have been trying to workout how to add a browser extension that could:
- download the map you want
- unpack it in the correct location
- let you know when when ready
- and present the option to start Q3A for you on that map.
