    Default Map improvements - Shrines/Chests

    As part of our effort to help new and returning players, we're continuing to refine our in-game map...

    One of these changes is a quest/adventure area feature that shows shrines and chests on the map once you've discovered them!

    No more "where was that chest we found a minute ago". No more "this blueish area I think was where a shrine was". And there's nothing quite like being almost out of resources, only to reveal that there is a shrine close by! As you make your way through a zone and uncover the Fog of War, you will be able to see the icon of the shrines and chests on your full map, as well as your radar. Never lose track of your shrines and chests again!

    For the time being these threads will hang out here in Development until their new home is set up where it will be easier to follow along

    Screenshots?

    Oh, and it sucks for the players who took the time to draw maps. Now they'll have to redo them.

    Why? THe Maps arent changing, Turbine is just providing a clear icon for locations of Chests and Shrines....

    Most of the map folks already drop their own icons in for these anyway.

    Want to really refine the map?

    1. Multiple maps per instance, such as for indoor/outdoor or upstairs/downstairs adventures.
    2. Teammate dots are numbered.
    3. Teammate dots are highlighted for some conditions, such as talking, typing, or dying.
    4. A high Listen score can reveal red blips for nearby active foes.
    5. Players can designate a waypoint/marker to be seen by their allies.

    What about after you have explored the map then the map is always shown filled out when I log back in or after the instance has reset?

    Perfectionism. Knowing the guys who bother making maps, like Dorim, trust me they will.

    Of course, that was me thinking out loud. Nothing that concerns Turbine in anyway.

    How about - lower the tooltip timer on the blue dots on the maps, so that hovering over a blue dot will immediately display the player name rather than having to wait the default tooltip time. I had a few more suggestions but A_D beat me to them

    You'll be seeing something along these lines.

    Yay! I always find myself losing where I put the shrine or chests, especially in outdoor areas or quests I don't know very well yet. This is a great idea for those of us easily lost

    also, thanks for the posts and info!
