Map display

Postby Batwing » Thu Feb 08, 2018 11:22 pm

I'm probably doing something wrong, but when I click a location the map area shows only that location box. How do I get the map to display all the locations linked together?
Thanks

Hi Batwing,

Unless you define the exits from a new location before you click OK or Apply, ADRIFT will put each new location that you create on a separate page of the game map. To put all your locations on one page is a bit time-consuming, but what you do on the developer map is to choose one of the pages as your main map and you should right-click on the page tab and rename it to whatever you want. You then switch to the next page, right-click on the location and then move your cursor over Move to Page and then select the page you just renamed. The location will be moved to the main map page but you will need to move it to make the map look neat. Left-click and hold the button down to move the location around on the map. It might help if you show the grid lines.

I might not be following your directions correctly...I renamed the first page. I clicked the next page tab. Then right-clicked on the location in the box listing all the locations. No menu option to MOVE.

You need to right click on the location square on the MAP.
See http://wiki.adrift.co/Connecting_locations_using_the_Map for full details on drawing the map and connecting locations together.
