I saw some have put pics of maps on here, and a map of the server,  where are you getting those maps of the server showing the landscape ?

 

 

The map dump is in the first post of this thread.

What about adding these to to the loot-table as fragments/skins or recipe to learn and be able to make them?

it's a DIY(do it yourself) package, you get ropes in 1 chest and gems in another, maybe both with same chest

Also please god let us keep the glass bottles from fishing.

I'd also like to ask a dev, if they're still watching, do the maps generate when the casket is opened? If I travel to Indy, find a map there and open the casket on Celebration, will the map be for Indy or Cele?

 

Also, the crab statue I found has no material type. Is that normal? I can understand if it maybe can't be imped, but it'd be nice to be able to rune them for fun.

as another note... my experience so far is bad... based on... mining and getting ql6 map... then ql 29 from journal.. mining more.. just to get ql11...

 

Challenge for me.. is trash level so far, any chance to scale things somehow?

* balancing and alt hoarding etc.. is not my problem obviously.. just want to have some kind of fair good experience and challenge and not a cheap slot machine based on rng rolls, obviously this is best farmed by having many alts and spamming actions all day, which is not gameplay, it's rather exploit to how it works to gain more than others;

 

What really bugs me.. is.. do you guys plan to scale content with this, as it seems to be da-bomb content many waited for because of free sp and exclusive content.. this is now rifts 4.0 rewards, but.. rifts were mostly implemented and buried, few cosmetic changes but no improvement to items gained from the rifts for years, the list of hinted content and missing implementation from rift rewards is long and offtopic but it's a really good study and lesson.. that if something works, it shouldn't be left behind.

You can't take them to other servers. They are bound like settlement deeds.

As per Finn's request, posting this here

Please let us open the bottle and keep it. It has a cork in the top, allow is to just open it and discard the cork seal, or hell, make the bottles the only way to get cork seals, and they only work with treasure bottles, and let us seal them up the same way we do barrels and the like.

 

Please?

Praying definitely works, at least at an altar.

 

I've mined for about 9 hours total and got nothing yet there.

We need to be able to give more than one heart to posts.

 

These objects themselves are valuable added content.

suggestion for the ui..

 

Treasure map window from right click "Open" could include the other 2 functionalities from right click "show hint"(on map in inventory) and "show legend"(on the map window) could be part of the treasure map window and work in the familiar way from the normal map with enabling/disabling village, alliance pins, etc..

(idea is to not hide functionality behind right clicks, keep the ui simple)

 

Is it possible to have a checkbox or some way to keep the shown hint/s on the normal map from fading away after few seconds and prevent it per map or for all currently shown hints?

Useful functionality could be(because of overlapping areas):

show hint per map

show hint for all maps in inventory

hide hint per map

hide hints for all maps in player inventory

 

--edit

...

[18:59:10] <Daveospice> what tricks are people using for the maps that show just a hill etc

[19:00:46] <Shydow> Daveo - Make sure you right click the map > show legend

[19:00:57] <Blazecraze> Wait the map has a legend now?

[19:01:18] <Lisimba> The UI really needs to expose this stuff more.

There are some problems. I have a problem seeing green on green. And if the topology is different I have to select pieces in paint.net and, with problems, look for the right place on the map. And on the community map itself, it's also hard, but there, at least as on a contour map, there are marks.

I already have 3 cards hanging in the air. I live on xanadu and I can't even find it with brute force.

I have an excellent offer. Make a pendulum spell, similar to the existing ones, to search for treasure on the map. For example, an activated pendulum on a treasure map, and then as with the search for a champion.

not a bad idea considering directions were gutted and some areas are disgusting to navigate

That seems like a decent compromise to me for getting more useful hints to return.

Might make it too easy, though, unless it was extremely short range even at very high casts/pendant qls.
