[Treasure Hunting] I think very much that the layout of the maps and Radar should match

    I am seriously worried when all the maps I have waiting to decode are going to be a problem. My concern is how the radar / atlas and even UO cartographer do not have the same layout as the T maps.

    The T Maps should be on the same axis as the tools we have to help locate the sopts.

    I dont mind having to use mining or anthing else I would just like them to look the same as I am loking at them.

    I am a soldier and one of the first thing you do in navigation is - "orient the map"

    In UO Cartographer, right click on the screen and choose "Tilt Map".
     
  4. Don't change it... as Trix pointed out, you can tilt the map.

    Re: How do you tilt the map in EC?

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\UserInterface\Copper_Enhanced\Source

    this is the directory i go to yours will be similar depending on what you use
    then go to the radarwindow.lua or the mapwindow.lua depending on what one you wish to change
    then their will be a line that says mapwindow.rotation change the 45 to a 0 and save
    then when you pull up atlas it will not be tilted but radar map will be still depending on what one you changed!

    make sure and back up the file before you do this encase you mess up!!!

    That should be added to the FAQ!

    Lestat who made the FAQ is away at the moment however I have added it in and also to the map program sticky. :)

    Thanks for the tip Storm.
     
  11. I wouldnt mind them being oriented the same but using the screenshot method ( Mostly for the zoom from bad vision) I dont have much of a problem using land marks and little colored squares. And this is with 0 mining.
