How to find locations
« on: March 07, 2012, 03:49:03 pm »

Just wondering if anyone could tell me how to find New Zealand. I tried looking up the latitude and longitude coordinates and setting my location to them but all I found was ocean. Are the coordinates in game set to real life ones?

Yes they should be like google maps and google earth. Maybe it's a terrain bug ?

Yeah... That could send you in a bit of a different direction.  :P

Real men get out a compass and a walk it!

I noticed just a few minutes ago that pressing [G] brings up a map in the lower right corner of the screen. Extremely helpful if you're trying to find somewhere =)
