During the "Player Videos" section of the con, someone showed a couple of those "WWII Trench Video"s, and then someone had to show this video ("The Emperor gets a phone call") – its not a WWII video, its just the funniest Starwars related video I've ever seen.
Anyway, I just generated my final player activity animation for now, covering May 24-28th inclusive. I'm not going to be spending much more time trying to make this data set useful or appealing, its done its actual job, and I'm just not very good at this kind of image manipulation/etc without putting my mind to it fully and a significant amount of time.
The animation/data starts to get rather large at this resolution/timespan, but reducing the minutes per frame starts to make it a bit too "blah". I may look at some other uses for this data, or we may make some version of it generally available for players to generate their own data from.
There is a README in the zip file explaining things in a little more detail :)
