      • An option in the advanced settings controls how fast zooming is.
    • Rotating the map will be around the current location and not the player.
    • Controllers will see a smooth directional panning experience.
    • Panning the map will try to keep a portion of the map visible on the center of the screen.

Notes For Modders



  • The mod release id for this beta is R22_PIRATEMONKEYS
  • Lots of changes have been made to the tile system, see the thread Tile Changes and More
  • player:CanSeeTileOnMiniMap(tx, ty)
    • Both client and servers can use this to roughly detect if a player has etched away the unexplored areas on their minimap.
  • player:CanSeePointOnMiniMap(px, py, pz)
    • This is a convenience wrapper which uses the underlying tile for precision.

I don't know about you, but this sounded like normal dog behavior to me.

can you please add a function for modders to add custom maps to spesific locations. Simular to how the map changes when you are inside any interior in hamlet.
