    The devs have spoken - so mote it be.

    Nevermind that we're now coming up on 2018, and games like the "The Bard's Tale III" circa 1988 (30 years ago for the math-challenged folks) had an auto-mapping feature as part of the game. And remember, this was for dungeons being crawled through on the Apple II, C=64, Amiga and PC-Dos, so obviously it was a high tech concept to master back then. Now, you tell me.

    @Fringe - Thanks for programming those calculators -- they're very helpful for estimating what I need to make things happen correctly! :)

    I'm going to hazard a guess that English isn't your first language, and that's fine, but the lack of replies is probably due to the difficulty we're having in understanding what it is you're asking or commenting on.

    I've been playing computer games since before the Commodore 64 came out, so I understand what it's like to play and not have a map available. But here, really? The game had two different coordinate systems on Sarenus and the devs yanked 'em both. YES, I KNOW - the devs have spoken and the coordinate systems aren't coming back. I heard that loud and clear -- doesn't mean I have to like it or agree with it. Heck, even The Bard's Tale (played back in the days of the aforementioned C=64) had limited mapping ability for the dungeons, so I still fail to see how a map isn't applicable here. I for one, very much appreciate what you've set out to do @ShadowBG -- a hearty "Thank you!" for doing so. :)

    @Fringe Thanks for trying man. This is really frustrating, as we were discussing in game. (I play as Manchineela). For a feature that's been available for months ever since I started playing this past spring, and to now yank it with no provision for replacement is a huge step backward in my opinion.

    How about some kind of an in-game map, where all of the places you've been in the past say, week, are available an positioned (to scale) without actual coordinates displayed? Then allow for a "fog of war" effect to begin to cover over the map again, such that it becomes almost necessary for the players to explore the server map to keep their maps up to date? Otherwise people are going to be extremely isolated and there's not going to be much in the way of cooperation or exploration and no reason to.

    Figures.. once again, it's the cheaters and hackers ruining it for the rest of us. Sigh...

    Another way of looking at it is that the grid system is akin to latitude and longitude on a map. Do you honestly believe the players are better off without such a feature?
