Place user at his or her location on engine startup
« on: March 14, 2012, 09:42:55 pm »

I think it would be neat to have the program load up and place the user at their current location in real life. For example, if I live in San Diego, CA place me there when Anteterra loads up.

You can save locations to go to you know.  You can also set the default one that loads when you start Anteworld.

Maybe he meant setting his/her location as default at the first time you start the game.

Guessing GPS coords from IP is not very reliable. Honestly, I'd rather just enter the coords manually.
