    Thumbs up Good improvement

    Looks like a nice touch to help new players - and me

    Any plans to modify the maps to make them more helpful in quests which have a number of areas which are stacked on top of each other or which have a number of indoor outdoor areas?

    Some which spring to mind are Chains of Flame, Caverns of Corromar, Tempest Spine.

    Great work on the dev updates.

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

    YES!!!

    Go run TS, or Coal chamber, or Chains in the desert and then tell me that it'll be easy to find the shrine.

    This is a good change.. but please don't stop there. We need altitude on the maps. 2d maps of 3d areas is beyond useless. And.. can we PLEASE get maps of caves inside instances...

    Restless Isles is TERRIBLE!

    Wait a minute..

    Are you saying that whenever a partymember finds a shrine or chest, it updates EVERYBODY'S map?

    If it just updates the map of hte person who found it... how exactly does that help the lost person find it easier?

    These changes are good start. I like Angelus_dead's suggestions.

    How about the notation of traps, levers, switches, plates or other items which a party would find significant in their exploration?

    This is nice too:

    This will make it feel more like real PnP, in so much as, I always expected my players to mark important points on their map as I uncovered it for them. I like this addition.

    Huzzah!

    I still wish we had the ability to mark points of interest ourselves on maps. But considering mapping has long needed an overhaul I wont complain. Some progress is better than none at all.

    Should allow both spot and listen to work this way, although I could understand not having spot work this way due to the line-of-sight argument.

    That's one thing that I really liked about GuildWars -- you could not only designate markers on the map, but could actually draw on it as well.. Was great for explaining strategies to folks who hadn't done something before.

    Nice change. As others have said, getting mapping to actually work in all cases and adding some 3d effect would be a bonus, but marked maps is a nice start.

    Nice.

    But I will echo what others have said. Multilevel maps need a serious overhaul.

    Thats not such a huge deal, just have to copy and paste icons onto original maps.
    As for helping map makers, toggle switch for not showing player dots would be cool tho.
    Saves us taking 2 screenshots, layering them, doing some eraser etc...
    Im usually too lazy and leave dots but hey...

    Oh yea and what about "taking screenshots in png format" option?

    now this I like .... one thing though is there any plan do work on the maps them selfs I mean any map of a instance where there are multi lvls is really lacking (think tempest spine here, and the pit) will shrines and chests still be clear in these cases?

    Phex/Tolero what about chests and shrines other in party find but not you.

    For instance,

    East guys and West side guys. West finds chest/shrine. East guys, not being near have no clue where chest/shrine is.

    Will new icon show for enire party in map or only those who cleared fog of war?

    Would really love if icon showed up even if map is still obscured by fog of war. This way East guys heading west, after west guys head south, can make way to chest and loot, or shrine.
