Limit to number of image folder?

Postby 3l3phant » Sat Oct 26, 2019 1:42 pm

I'm about to move a lot of folders to a new location to be imported into OWM. I was wondering if there was:

(a) A limit to the number of folders that can be mapped in the art image manager
(b) A limit to the number of images that can be imported? (I have roughly 3,701)

Thanks!

There shouldn't be! Other World Mapper also only loads images as you use them, so it shouldn't have a performance time impact (other than startup taking a little longer as it parses through the folders).

And you can always "hide" sets from the art manager if it gets overwhelming in program.

Do let us know if you come across any issues!

My installation has more than that in a few add-ons, each alone being bigger, and they contain more than 22,000 images. The installation runs quite smoothly.

Thanks all, that's great to know.

Mark - Are there specific cartographic add-on artists/sources you recommend?

The only 3rd party add-ons for OWM that I'm aware of are the four free add-ons that we distribute (for personal and commercial use).

Let's hope others will add more.
