These need to be shown on the map.
Not really. Just clutters it up. There are outside maps for that. http://wiki.riseofagon.info/map/
Outside maps are cumbersome and are not user friendly. The map in this game is garbage.
A new player should be able to open the map and see spawns, bindstone, banks, dungeons and holdings( but not who owns them). This information is all available elsewhere and it's dumb to hide it on a 3rd party site.
Also, allow us to zoom in further on the world map. As it is now, it's just words on top of words in a capitol city.
I think darkfall new dawn has a feature that allows players to search mobs/banks/cities on the ingame map.
I think BPG has said they'll eventually add an in game map of things like this.
They do and it's super comfy and definitely appreciated by noobies that don't really enjoy being told to always alt-tab to this website to use a map.
Yup a much better map is needed.
tell me one reason not to include this ouside map in the game. like new dawn does. A map like this can really help and no reason not to add it with outside maps like the one you linked
Because there are a thousand other things they can be working on that has a larger impact. I would rather them spend their time and money on something that has a meaningful impact on the overall game.
And I like out of game resources like maps in games like this. They are always far better than the in-game ones. Players know the game better in the end and add in details that are relevant to other players.
Ya just tell us where everything is so we don't have to explore for our selves or anything .... -_-
make it so locations like mobs/chests/chaos stones/banks/cities only show on map after you discovered them and just have a toggled layer for stuff like npc cities/outposts/hamlets/player cities.
I honestly cant think of a single thing that would come even REMOTELY close to helping new players as a real, functioning map like DFUW had.
If you have to use third party shit for basic gameplay then ur doing it wrong. Not only is tabbing out constantly really fucking annoying, but the maps are often inaccurate. Most importantly, the people who need this info the most might not know the third party map exists. and no "they should ask" is not a solution. the game needs to be intuitive
I get that it hasn't come up yet, and there are other priorities at launch but imo this should be the next big change after the launch stabilizes.
it would do WONDERS for casual players coming in.
Not taking either side, but we didn't need it then and we don't need it now. If you need google and navigator and a gps to figure out how to go north... well. Darkfall was from day one "close your eyes, throw a dart, go, holy shit what was that..." Be happy it shows you where you are at on it. Pick a direction and go. What's next? You want Reds to flash a warning on it and to know they're hiding behind that rock. The maps you so painfully have to alt tab out for were made by those that picked a direction and went that way, and being Darkfall, had to go that way a few times. Darkfall isn't and won't be your typical hand everything to me now because else or I'll cry MMO. And if you do have everything, hope you don't get marked on the map because we're all coming. Anyone new coming to Darkfall has already played some form of MMO out there and are well aware of forums and knowing someone will post a link. Use it or don't. Takes a lot of resourse and puts more stress on a server to constantly ping a spawn especially now if they will be roaming spawns in some areas. Hide in a bush, tab out, gaze upon the great hand of the gaming gods to lead you to every magical special free gold here waypoint then tab back in hopefully not to a shiny tombstone... welcome to Darfall! And hell ya it's back! Thanks for that.
EVERY info should be found in game. In game map, in game Wiki etc.
I want my roaming mob spawns that AV promised in 2009 with ways to track them down IG via tracking skills and gathering info from other players and NPCs. Third party sites would be pointless
The map is fine as it is....
Have to disagree, finding spawns give a level of exploration that's needed. If people knew where every mob is without finding them it takes away the sand from th box
You can find mobs and add notes on your personal map, enjoy the game exploration of this hand crafted map and mob spawns
I also dont want mobs on map unless you make it toggle able so i can choose not to have it cluttered.
most people probably still dont know you can add markers yourself by typing "/annotation_add (whatever you want)"
I have found portals not on the map..I personally like finding things..only thing we need is right click map to add a marker with typing. A lot of players don't know the command.. let player make thier own map...

The typing command needs to go with just a simple right click of map and add text..is the only change needed.
How do new players find this map?
I don't know how many times I've seen new players asking or complaining about "X" because they have no access to a map.
Something so simple and SO OBVIOUS, was completely ignored by BPG. How you do not inform your new players of a detailed map is fucking beyond me.

Didn't know this.
This game is so fucking old and out dated.
