|Sharing the map|
After getting used to the commands you will notice that this tool is very simple to use. Easily, you can create maps with marks and tips to share and help other players. And, even help us marking the location of NPCs, and creatures and hunting places (soon).
By default the map will show the ground level (floor "0") of the main continent (central point north of Mount Sternum).
Moving the map on the same floor: just click, hold and drag with the left button of your mouse over the map surface.
View another floor at a certain point: just use the arrows ▲ and ▼ located at the first menu at the superior left corner: Exploration features.
Changing the zoom level: just use the mouse wheel.
The second menu of comands will allow the user to add marks, NPCs and creatures to the map.
Adding marks: Click on the referring icon of the desired mark and then, on the map area, click at the place where you wish to add it.
Adding creatures: First, click on the corresponding icon. On the map area, click at the place where you wish to add it. A command box will open:
Adding NPCs: First, click on the corresponding icon. On the map area, click at the place where you want to add it. A command box will open and you just need to write NPC's name, select it from the displayed list and click the "add" button.
Note: After mark one creature, a creature's grey image will be displayed over the map. Grey sprites indicate submisions that are still waiting for review. But, they also work as a way to preview the creatures already submited by you or another user.
By the Contribution System is also possible to earn points by helping with marks on the map. But for this, specially in relation to creatures, you must be aware to the following rules:
Only the first right submision will receive points of a specific NPC/Creature.
At the moment we will only be accepting submisions of creatures at their regular spawns and bosses. In other words, raid creatures (that are not bosses) will be disconsidered.
Try to point the approximated position of a specific kind of creature at the respective spawn place and amount. For example:
Note: A recently add creature that waits for review, will be displayed on the map with a grey sprite. After our reviewers check and validate it will be displayed with the right colours and amount indicator (in case there are more than 1 at the same spawn).
The first menu of commands will allow to view the position of all NPCs and creatures that were already added on the map, by youself or by another user. And also the houses and guildhalls in the area that is being displayed.
View Creatures: Click on the corresponding icon, it will turn green and, if the creatures on the displayed area of the map were already pointed/added, they will be displayed on the map.
View NPCs: Click on the corresponding icon, it will turn green and, if the NPCs on the displayed area of the map were already added, they will be displayed on the map.
View houses/guilhalls: Click on the corresponding icon, it will turn green and, if the houses/guildhalls on the displayed area of the map were already mapped, they will be highlighted.
Note: Remember that the creature or NPC added recently added by you will only be displayed after one of our reviewers check and aprove the marking. But, using the menu to add marks will be possible to se a grey preview of the creatures waiting for review.
It will be also possible to get points by helping to review and complete the markings on the map. For this, noticing a creature is poorly positioned or if the amount indication is wrong, just click over it with the right button of the mouse and by the menu it will be possible to:
Update the amount.
On the last menu there are two options to share our map. And it is possible to share both the default map as the map edited by you.
These options are particularly useful both to help a friend with doubts concerning the location of something on Tibia as to illustrate, in an easy way, some guide, spoiler or forum topic tha you intend to create for our fansite.
Although the use of this functionality is easy and intuitive (click on a place on the map, copy code/link, share) to get the expected result you need to keep in mind some things:
TThe code for a certain position in the map of Tibia consists of 4 parts:
As you move the map image, changing the position on the same floor, changing floor or changing the zoom modificates the code.
Before coping the field/link to share, first set the best map position and the most appropriate zoom level for what you want to display. Then click the mouse on the reference location and only then copy the code/link to share
In the copied link/code, the chosen location will be displayed in the center of the map screen.
The field will show the BBCode of the selected map area. The code is ready to be shared on our fansite. It can be used on guides, spoilers and forum threads.
The field will show the URL of the selected map area. It is ready to be shared on any site or social media.
