  • Map tips

    So I finally found a map. Any tips on how to use this map from the ArmA players? Are there specific things about map functionality in DayZ?

    Function? Besides for navigation and the like. Not really unfortunately.

      You can double click (I think) to put a marker down. Not super helpful without a GPS, but... I marked a few tree-stands, and a few places where pumps were in towns.

        A few servers will mark your location on the map which is super helpful, not all of them do though. Personally I just keep my laptop next to me with the browser map open. Safer to glance at that then to kneel down and be completely oblivious to the outside world for a few seconds.

          If you put markers on a map, everyone in the server with a map will see it. This is part of the ArmA engine, not part of the DayZ mod.

              What if the markers are in Direct ? Will that only show to people a certain distance away ?
              And what about Command Channel ?
              I know I can see people's text in that channel but has anyone tested the map markers ?

                Also (again only on some servers) shift-clicking will set a waypoint that you can see while walking around, also very handy for finding your way around.

                  A good 8 minute tutorial.

                  I personally keep eyes out for landmarks, find those first, and then plot out my course to another landmark using approximate angles by shadows. Try to completely avoid pure forest unless you have a compass... you'll get turned around without knowing.
