Old Treasure Maps

Discussion in 'UO Fishing and Treasure Hunting' started by Breyn Darkthorne, Sep 17, 2010.

  1. I have just returned to UO after being gone for three years and a lot has changed!

    I have quite a few old treasure maps from days gone by (pre-publish 67) and for the life of me I cannot understand why I cannot dig any of them up. Since the launch of SA, are the old maps no longer good? I tried to dig up two different locations on Valor Island and I dug every tile on the top of the island and nothing. I never had this much trouble digging maps before!

    I also downloaded UO Cartographer and have all the features but the screen is black. I can move my cursor all around on the screen and can see the coordinates changing. I also see my characters little icon on the screen which will also move when I take steps. Is there something about UO Cartographer's beta program that is bugged? Maybe I'm bugged...but I'm running on Vista.

    I have GM Carto but not GM Mining.

    Any insight would be great!

    Are you running UO Cartographer with the EC (the new client) or the CC (the latest version of 2D)?

    With 2D/CC, you have to have UOAssist running, even if an expired trial version, as UOCart uses the same UOA functionality as UOAM did, for tracking the maps.

    With the EC, you need to have a plug-in installed in the user interface, for UOCart to work (included in most skin packages). See the Enhanced client forum for these things.

    Also, you need have all the programs running as Administrator, for UOCart to access the map files in Vista or W7.

    Maps are now random locations. Without mining, you about have to be standing on it, and with mining it can take 1-5 minutes to find the right spot (provided a house isn't sitting on it).

    If I understand this right, the old ones will continue to work with the thunting rune books I had from a long time ago, but the new maps will be random in areas where they spawn?

    So my question is, would it be worth while to mark runes to the new locations or not?

    Your old maps should have changed by now, You'll need to decode them again and you'll get a random new location.
