VVVV usermap

Hello Dave,

I felt the user’s representation in the map could be improved from the current one. Rather saying so i did a simple one and attached the file here, just a humble contribution from my side. The idea is to have the icon like triangle and letter “v” inside. seeing a cloud of these icons will reflect like “VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV…” all around the globe ;)

Hope our folks like it!

Hey, nice one!
May I suggest you to “light up” the shadow? It could lead to a not clear view, hiding other icons in BG. It wouldn’t be such a big problem, but would probably force user to zoom, in or out, constantly.


Hello h99,
Glad that you liked :)
I think the best way is to see it in cloud view and adjust the shadow opacity accordingly.

Here is the png file for the shadow,


Cloud… so you mean… spread, uh? That’s a challenge? Got it! ;)

After spreading quads, this committee declare:

You lucky guy! It’s already fine!

Thank you mate. I just noticed that letter “V” was not aligned and positioned nicely, so here i fixed and attached again. Does this going to make it for user maps? :)

What do you say of a V that holds a square (now yellow, then gray, then…) between its branches (posted a quick one)?

Is this to represent vvvv square metaphor? It’s a good idea too but we need pointer kind of look for the map and i am afraid square doesn’t show the location precisely as inverse triangle.

I appreciate that you are investing your time on experimenting with the map.

Have a good day!
