Confused about map info.
« on: October 01, 2017, 11:41:59 PM »
It may be me.  ??? ???  Very confused.

But how do I know what the co-ordinates mean. In all games, also how do I connect them?


I have cattle at (116,,178)  and Diary at (73/152).

But what do those numbers mean?  ???

I guess I have to connect a road between the 2. But how do I find them on the map.

Is 116 across or down. Is 178 down or across.  It is not obvious when looking at the map.

They are tile coordinates. The coordinates of the cursor is displayed at the bottom of the screen. But the easiest way to find these things, is to click on them. Depending on the context, this may be a normal click, a right-click or a normal click on the small arrow button. Have the minimap open to more easily see how they are in relation to each other. You might need to modify the size or scale of the minimap, but 116,176 and 73,152 should be quite close.
