Hey OPers,

If you haven't read our last update post, or checked out the map markers interface lately, then it may be news to you that we released a new set of map markers under the set name "General". Since this was the first foray into map markers for Jynx001 and myself (admittedly he did most of the heavy lifting on this), we stayed fairly close to the established mold, but branching out is certainly something we're up for doing going forward.

That said, we're very interested in hearing from the community. What markers would you like to see next? How about in general?

A few of the concepts/sets we have in mind at the moment are:


  • Fantasy Town (Anvil, Apothecary, Dock, Graveyard, Inn, Stables, Temple, Well)

  • Modern Town (Airport, Cell Tower, Factory, Hotel, Police Station, Restaurant, School)

  • Disasters (Biohazard, Blight, Crevasse, Flood, Meteor, Plague, Radiation, Tornado, Tsunami, Volcano)

  • Fantasy Overworld Map (Bridge, Cave, City, Mine, Tower, Village)

  • Alphanumerics (Letters, Numbers, Roman Numerals)

There are some others, but hopefully this is enough to get peoples' minds going. So tell us what you'd like to see! We want to hear from you.

    Any and all of the above, plus I'd love to see some sci-fi options. Starport, asteroid field, black hole, sector capital, etc.

    Great suggestions, WarChild! I have added them to the master list.

    I'll second the sci-fi options, adding a space version of shipwreck to the mix.

    Good one.  It's on the list now, too.  Thanks for the input!

    Currently I am happy with the Std Dragon marker and use colour coding to denote different types of locations but all of the ideas above seem to me like good additions.

    yes

    Is there a way to lock them down so players don't end up moving them around on accident?  Also is there any plan for controls on who can edit map markers, I'm not sure most campaigns would even want players to be able to edit them?

    These are not things that are in place currently, but I can certainly put the notion forth and see what can be done in this area.
