    Last year we tossed around the idea of Revamping the Treasure Map system but it was put on hold for various other projects. Over the last few weeks Lestat, WildStar, Shadefox of Europa and I have been working on completing the project in coordination with Kijustsu Anei, Area 51 and Moria Village. We are just about ready to give it a test run in Tokuno, Malas and Ter'Mur.

    The new system is being created by dividing up the land masses into sections and randomly marking runes within each of these sections to cut down on travel time. Obviously you wont need it if the Treasure map is right outside of the Luna gate but for other locations it may be helpful.

    The system is free to use and we hope that Treasure Hunters from Chesapeake will help us do some internal shard testing before we release for general testing to RP groups on the Baja, Europa and Atlantic shards. The Runebooks are located at the H-J Rune library on the first floor of the Community teleport hub, we look forward to your feedback and suggestions for those willing to help.

    I have just finished cutting and pasting the final parts to the Trammel map and hope to have it up tomorrow and overwork our rune markers Lestat and WildStar

    I would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to the following people for allowing me access to over 1,000 Treasure Maps to create the images; Lady Angelica, Lady Abby Normal, Lady...Janitor Pooper, DreadLord Lestat and Lady Laural. Without you guys it would have taken me forever!!

    These don't have exact coordinates like the old ones did. These get you to a location that is hopefully a short run to your map location. Don't get rid of your mining yet.

    You may want to try using the EC/Pinco's UI and UOCart. I do not have mining but can uuaully find the location by enlarging the treasure map and comparing to UOCart which you can zoom in or out as needed.

    That's just about exactly what I do... except that I never thought about expanding the map using Pinco's UI. What a great idea! Cart does make everything much easier when finding the map location.
