Automatically adds map markers to your map when you interact with certain objects. Fully configurable to add only the map markers you are interested in. Current options include:

  • Add map markers when you harvest resin, berries, or mushrooms.
  • Add map markers when you collect loose surface ores.
  • Add map markers when you interact with traders.

Makes it easier to remember locations and return to those locations later, and eliminates the tedium of manually opening the map and creating map markers. Can also help to ensure you don't miss out on gold or silver surface ore, which are sometimes difficult to spot!

Also supports hotkeys:

  • Up to 3 custom, configurable map markers linked to hotkeys.
  • A hotkey to delete the nearest map marker.

 

The mod is disabled by default when first installed. To enable the mod, open the configuration menu (Ctrl+Shift+M by default, adjustable keybind), and click the Enable button. You can also configure all of your preferences from this menu, including the icons, colors, and names that should be used for each type of automatically created map marker.

 

Works both in singleplayer mode and on multiplayer servers. Check out the file changelogs for more details!

It is possible but it is not the direction I want to take this mod right now. For additional context, you may refer to the following: https://github.com/egocarib/Vintage-Story-Mods/issues/2

Can't it be client side only?

egocarib, Jul 22nd at 7:13 PM

It needs to be installed on both the server and the client for use on multiplayer servers.

Kurazarrh, Jul 19th at 8:03 PM

For use on servers, does this mod require that both the server and client have this installed, or does it only need to be installed on clients?

Thanks a ton for getting to work on servers!!!

The GUI for this is pretty much exactly what I'm working on for the next version of Waypoint Extensions. I've been working on a lot of the automatic triggers, and stuff. This is a very good implementation, from what I can see in the screenshots.

Absolute Great Mod. Thanks

Here is a suggestion: Auto Mountains and Caves markers. 

Alternatively add a togglable Height overlay

Malachite is supported currently, it is just grouped together with copper (they use the same setting). Maybe I'll add some tooltips to the UI to make that clear. I'll look into some of the other things folks have requested for the next update. :)

maybe not quartz, that's everywhere lol...would make the map full of markers; but definitely silver/gold :) 

maybe malachite too?

JyeGuru, Jul 4th at 3:12 AM

Thanks for this - it will GREATLY assist with our server! Would it be possible to add silver/gold/quartz as an option too?

Entity, Jul 2nd at 10:01 PM

This will save so much time exploring, thank you.

egocarib, Jul 2nd at 12:57 PM

Significant update. Includes the ability to mark berries and mushrooms, too, as @Entity suggested.

And no, you won't get resin from a tree that you plant yourself.

egocarib, Jun 29th at 10:02 PM

If you do not break the resin-leaking wood block, then yes, it will continue to produce more resin a few days later.

Berkyjay, Jun 28th at 9:44 PM

Is it confirmed that the same trees always spawn resin?  I tried making trees manually but never saw them respawn again.

Entity, Jun 28th at 1:32 AM

This is a great idea. Would it be possible to make an all in one mod for resin, berries, and mushrooms?
