Example image of the map

Access the map by pressing M (default key). You'll see icons representing dungeons, towns, caves and other points of interest along with brown lines denoting roads. The difficulty level of a dungeon is represented by the number of dots that appear above the icon.

Your current location is initially at the center of the screen, displayed as a black arrow icon. The map can be shifted around by clicking and dragging. The mouse wheel zooms in and out. There is also a minimap seen in regular play at the top right corner.

Map Controls

The map has a variety of options and controls able to be used/turned on. To move the map around, a combination of the 🖱M1 (left click) and 🖱Scroll wheel to drag the map and zoom in and out respectively. The 🖱M3 key (clicking the scroll wheel) can be used to place a waypoint anywhere on the map. This waypoint can also be placed on any of the icons representing landmarks on the map.

Additional Controls

There are some miscellaneous controls at the bottom of the map screen. The Recenter button, as the name suggests, recenters the map to make your arrow at the center of the map. The Toggle Minimap Voxel View button allows you to see a closer look at the local area around you in the minimap, like for example seeing the buildings in a town [image] or the layout of a dungeon [image]. The Change Map Mode button changes the look of the map, from a daytime version [image] to a nighttime version [image] and vice versa.
