GUIDE UO Automap for UO Outlands

#22
Unfortunately that is too difficult for me. But I updated it here pretty often and from now on the map is almost complete. The essential parts of it at least. If the Admin would like to make it sticky, that would be nice though.

Would you be okay with me hosting a github repo of this project with proper attribution to you?
I have a couple additions / changes / removals I've made on my files from running around that would be good to get integrated in as well, and github would be ideal for that.

What's your Discord username? I'll PM you a repo link to show you real quick so you can see check it out first.

Update 010 (outdated) = UO Automap locations for UO Outlands v.2019.04.02a.zip

- Added UOO_Vendors.map with player vendor houses over the land. I mapped some as "merchants guild" because that icon is not really used for something else. In the name I included the date I last checked that vendor spot and the name of the shop or a description of the items sold there. I do not intend to map every vendor on Avadon and keep this list up to date. I will just add here some vendor houses from time to time.
Naming example: [[email protected]] Knightly Deals
- Some other minor improvements over the land and dungeons.

Classic UO (CUO) client works now with UO Automap

I just figured out how to make UO Automap track your character if you are using the new Classic UO (CUO) client (
http://forums.uooutlands.com/index.php?threads/how-to-connect-with-classicuo-aka-orionuo-as-of-2019-02-27.1811/).
The solution is not elegant as it involves using the 2D classic game client, but it works.

- step 1: Start the 2D client from UO Steam or Razor (it does not matter if you are logged on UO or not with other account, but make sure "Reduce CPU usage" option is on on UOS or Razor to save CPU cycles).
- step 2: Open CUO over it, enter Outlands and start UO Automap.

UO Automap will now track your character in CUO.

J20190413_162012 UO Automap.png


This is a big update and everyone using UO Automap or UO Cartographer should apply this update. Some of the new markers are mapped by myself, some are taken from Ultima Mapper. I want to thank to all Ultima Mapper contributors for their hard work.
- Added teleporters to islands and many hidden passages over the land (thank you Ultima Mapper contributors).
- Changed crimsongates and goldengates icon in dungeons so now it actually display a moongate.
- Added more markers on Nusero and few others over the land.
- Various other changes to make sure UO Automap and UO Cartographer markers are compatible with each other.
- Many improvements in dungeons.
- House boats now properly show as boats.
- Mobs update from Ultima Mapper. Increased number of marked mobs from 2929 to 3138. Cavernam monsters added as well besides various improvements in other places. Huge work made by Ultima Mapper contributors.
When you are going to activate this file make sure to hit CTRL+H to hide labels, otherwise the entire map will be covered in text.

Update 012 (outdated) = 2019.04.18 New background map created with UO Cartographer is now available for UO Automap as well.

J20190418_194723.png


Important update! My thanks to Skrypt for all the advises he gave me and for his patience to guide me. Without him this new beautiful map wouldn't be possible.
- Changed the background map with a map I created with UO Cartographer with several advantages:
- - - - - - - Relief and elevations are represented and everything is more detailed. I think overall it looks a lot better.
- - - - - - - Solved for good the following errors I discovered, and perhaps some others I didn't:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - The error where a part of dungeon Inferno LVL1 was covered by the old Sosarian Solen Hive reported first time here:
http://forums.uooutlands.com/index.php?threads/uo-automap-for-uo-outlands.1378/post-8604.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - The Sosarian Minax fortress standing over desert in NW of Ossuarry entrance.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - A black bar on Cavernam LVL1.


INSTALLATION:
- To install the new map go to UO Automap menu Map > Felucca Map Performance Settings and for "Normal View" set the slider to Faster:

Hit OK and the building process will start:
J20190418_203710.png

After some time, 4 BMP files will be created on UO Automap folder:
Map0-1.bmp
MAP0-2.BMP
MAP0-4.BMP
MAP0-8.BMP


- Close UO Automap.

- At this point download the updated map from here (~4Mb): https://1drv.ms/u/s!AqtI3rSJQnG_kwSy8ZXrxO9AhqEx
And unpack the files from the ZIP to UO Automap folder, overwriting the 4 BMP's.

- Start UO Automap again and you should see the enhanced UO Outlands map created with UO Cartographer.

If, for whatever reason you want the older "flat" version with those errors I was talking about before, just set the slider all the way to SLOWER. The BMP's will be deleted.

I updated the first post of this thread to reflect the new installation instructions.

Updated markers to reflect the map changes brought by the big patch from April 28, 2019

- Correcting many chests in Cavernam, Darkmire and Pulma.
- Adding more vendor houses on the vendor.map file. Now you are able to see where all those good deals are hiding.
