Mapping Operations

Filed under: Nad's Journal,Nah'dneb's Journal,News Journal — Nadnerb @ 1:28 am Cavern Time

Lately I’ve been working on mapping Minkata accurately. Both for a lack of something better to do, and because I don’t know if the bug that’s been allowing me to do it will be squashed soon. Currently, if you place markers in an age that does not show you KI coordinates, and then attempt to edit that mission in an age that does, all the markers will show coordinates. Interestingly enough, I think that I’ve also uncovered another bug along the way. The displayed coordinates change depending on what age you view them in.

Anyway, I’ve been running around Minkata, placing markers at all the notable landmarks, and reading off all the coordinates in Ae’gura. Then entering them into my little mapping app, the KI coordinate mapper. Speaking of which, I’ve upgraded it a bit. You can now view a preset map of all of the notable locations in Minkata, complete with custom marker images in it’s full zoomable glory. Just select “Minkata Map” from the dropdown menu in the middle.

  1. Now you just have to do that for all the GZ marker missions, Journey Cloths in the Ages, Nexus Linking Stations in Ae’gura, and the Museum Age Pods. ;)

  2. >.>

    Why do you think I put the whole application on the site, rather than just the map?

    That’s right! So other people could use it. ;)

  3. That said, I need to work out a way for other people could save their markers and send them in… Hopefully a way that’s integrated with the site.. >.>

    I could commandeer the comment system on that page, but that could be messy..
