Sonoran CAD allows communities to upload custom map images to the integrated, hosted live map. If your community does not use one of the map types provided, you can upload the images manually.
Extract the images from the YTD files with a program like OpenIV. You will need six files named exactly as follows:
minimap_sea_0_0.png minimap_sea_0_1.png minimap_sea_1_0.png minimap_sea_1_1.png minimap_sea_2_0.png minimap_sea_2_1.png
OpenIV - Extract Images
OpenIV - Save Images
Navigate to Admin > Advanced > In-Game Integration > Live Map and Push Events Select "Upload Custom" and upload all six correctly named files.
Live Map - Custom Map Uploader
Custom map images are limited to 30MB each. However, if you are uploading more than 100MB of images total, you will need to upload in separate batches.
