Is there such a thing as a map renderer for this game? I would like to be able to render my entire Airport City as a large PNG file regularly, but because I play on a mobile platform it would mean having to take many screenshots, clip out the game interface items for each one, then stitch them together into a single image. It is doable, but takes a lot of effort. It would be great if there was a simple way to render my entire map, either from the mobile app, or as a service on the Game Insight website, or even as a third-party service provided via API calls to the game data.

Um, why; to script an automation utility? That is an assured way to be banned. ❌
The thought hadn't even crossed my mind. I wouldn't even know where to begin doing such nefarious things. No, I just want to have a map of my Airport City that I can doodle on, for planning out new building placements ahead of time, etc. I'd want to keep updating it regualrly to match my current in-game city, so the background image would need to able to be refreshed easily.

I see, interesting. Well, nothing that I'm aware that's publicly exposed. You might have to get hired by G! or get lucky attending DevGAMM and befriending a developer but still odds are very low I'd imagine.

Otherwise, sounds like a lot of work but if graphically savvy could layer\overlay screenshots and maybe work in reverse (e.g. start with an advanced city for the full city grid, clear it, then build up using your layout? I dunno, seems like not much ROI.

Thanks for the input on this, @Maverick68. I have decided to move away from using the screenshot method, and I'm building my own map as a flat image, rather than an isometric view. I want to start planning out my build more, and adding such things as the bonus effect ranges for buildings, etc.

Think others have utilized a spreadsheet in a similar way so might be another method worth a try; might be worth a search.

Ive wanted a way to see the whole city with the entire fleet lined up, like how a visitor would see it. Think that would tie in well with your idea
