So is this dynamic or does a script need to run to update it?


The map generation is a script that Tom has set to run once an hour.

Mr. Analog

After you kill the Dragon and get the crappy poem (spoiler alert oh well) doesn't the game finish and the map regenerate? Or is that single player only?

Also apparently killing that dragon is a real bitch

You end up with a portal open so you can leave the end without dieing, and come back.. Apparently it stays in that state.

Took me a bit to figure out that the map is oriented:

N  E
  \/
  /\
W S

Good old 3D.

I thought the red compass arrow in the top right was fairly universal.

You've found a mushroom biome. Those are GIANT mushrooms, Mario has been alerted.

There will be mooshroom mobs there.... basically cows that have mushrooms growing out of them. They can be milked for both mike and mushroom stew.

Filter Name: Trading Chests
Filter character set:

Example:
*Free Stuff*
*Help your self*


Just tossing around Ideas... I know that some other mods are able to pickup invisible ASCII characters so to keep sign looking nice it might be possible to use those as instead to tag signs so the tag is invisible in game... It would just require adding a ALT+character to the sign text when making it.


Has this been implemented yet?  If I had a say, I'd only want the Major Points of Interest, Personal Buildings, and Trading Chests showing on the Minecraft Overviewer map.  All those other ones (including directions) just clutter things up and don't add anything to the map.
Prayin' for a 20!

I think we need some agreement on a standard for the filters...

Then need to wait for our server lord to implement it.

So far it is mostly me tossing out non-agreed on ideas.

Mr. Analog

I like your ideas quite a bit, we need Tom to check in though :)

Going back, he seemed to be on board, just wanted clarification on meaning.. and most of my ideas are just that... Do we agree on the filters? Do we want an "All Signs" option left in place or do we want that removed to effectively hide other signs?

Mr. Analog

I'm 50/50 on the all signs idea, part of me wants to read 'em all but I can see why someone would want to hide others.
