    Custom google map skins?

    by Scortas » Wed Jul 11, 2018 8:35 am

    Hey I'm wondering is there a way to put into the game custom google maps skins to fit the game more. Our game would benefit from a bit different look than just the default street or satellite view.

    Some sites I found where you can get custom google map looks:

    Cheers!

    Since ARIS uses apple maps on the client I don’t think there’s a way to directly use these maps. In ARIS 1 there was a half baked version of adding custom maps that was pretty cool. I believe a lot of the api hooks are still in place and that it would not be a very expensive feature to add. I’d love to help find ways to make it happen as you’re right, a lot of scenarios would benefit.
