Map Markers

Recommended Posts

Pete    0

Hello survivors,

Today, on the RP-search for my friend, I found a tent and instantly put up a little camp.

To find this camp again, I put a marker on the map (as I would do it in RP aswell).

Now I'm wondering if it is like on normal DayZ servers, so everyone who owns a map can see this marker?

Or is it different on this server, so only the person who finds your map can see the marker.

Need your help!

Greetings Pete

Everyone can see the marker just like on vanilla DayZ servers.

The X marks the spot markers are visible to all.

Shift Left Click and you can create a marker for yourself. That will disappear if you create another one or disconnect though.

Best thing you could do is to write down the coords.

Ok thanks a lot.

By the way, do you guys know how to delete one of these markers with the X?

I think you just mouse over it and press delete on your keyboard.

Aye, shift left click while in game but otherwise keep a notepad handy to your keyboard as someone before suggested :)

Ok thanks!

I just relogged to remove the marker, but it has gone anyway.

Does the X marker only stay as long as you are online?

If you mean the one that everyone can see, someone else might have deleted it too.

Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure the visibility of those markers depends on which communcation channel you use when creating the markers.

I.e. markers made in side channel are visible to all players, but side doesn't exist in DayZRP so no problem here. Markers made in group channel are only visible in blufor/redfor/independent etc, but we're all in blufor in DayZ so the effect is that everybody will see it (very useful in Wasteland though). Markers made in vehicle channel means all people in or near your vehicle will see it. Markers made in direct channel probably have the same range as direct chat (40 meters I believe?).

I'm pretty sure the markers disappear each server restart for side/group, and whenever you relog for direct. Vehicle-channel, no idea. I've never seen the markers transfer between players if you pick up some dead guys map.
