View NS maps during the game
I got tired of fumbling through my printouts of my overhead maps at the beginning of a match, then trying to find a place on my crowded desk to put the map so that I could refer to it during the game, so I made a program to solve the problem for me.
This is a simple Visual Basic program that queries a Natural Selection game server every 10 seconds, and displays an image of the map that's currently being played on the server. Obviously, this is really only useful if you run multiple monitors or have a second windows computer next to your gaming computer. This will work with any map images that are appropriately named, because it sizes the program window according to the dimensions of the current map image, but I've only tested it with my overhead maps.
The program, and my maps, can be found here:http://www.tribes2maps.com/ns/

Feel free to make suggestions for improvements. Enjoy!
