Discovery card

This article covers the map of ocean monuments and forest properties. For other meanings, see map (disambiguation).

Discovery cards are written maps that are designed to make it easier to find certain structures. They can only be obtained from a cartographer.

Properties [edit]

  • There are two discovery cards: the ocean discovery card and the forest discovery card.
  • The Ocean Explorer Map is designed for finding ocean monuments. Since these are more common than forest properties, they also cost less for the cartographer.
  • The forest discovery card is used to search for forest properties. Because of their rarity, they cost more on average to cartographers than ocean discovery maps.
  • Generates a cartographer new Offering a discovery card, he selects an area of ​​the world that has not yet been generated. Therefore, Explorer cards always contain a structure where no one has been before, which is useful in multiplayer mode. This structure is not necessarily always the next, but it is one of the closest.
  • Once the cartographer has made his offer, you will always get the same discovery card from him. This also applies to another cartographer who is near the first one, because he will find the same structure. Only when a player has approached the structure and thus generated the area of ​​the world will a second cartographer, who is in the vicinity of the first, look for another structure for his explorer map, if he has not yet created his map offer. It is easier to seek out a distant cartographer who will definitely find another structure.
  • However, you only find out which area the explorer map represents after you have negotiated. For the reasons mentioned above, it is possible that you will buy the same discovery card again.
  • Explorer cards enter their landscape as soon as the corresponding area of ​​the world is generated. Unlike normal cards, you don't have to hold them in your hand. You can also leave a discovery card at home, it is filled as soon as a player is in the card area.

Get explorer cards [edit]

Explorer cards can only be obtained by trading. They cannot be crafted, nor can they be found in chests, nor can they be found in the creative mode inventory, nor can they be obtained with the command.

In order to activate the discovery card offers with a cartographer, you must first accept three other offers (see Handel # Kartograph). The offer with the discovery card is only activated if the cartographer can find a corresponding building, which is not the case in flatland worlds, for example.

The ocean discovery card costs a compass and 12 to 20 emeralds. The forest discovery card has a compass and 16 to 28 emeralds.

The object can be recreated with the command and then looks like an explorer card on the outside, but it remains a normal card. Cards are generally generated by the game. Explorer cards have the special feature that their center does not depend on the position of the player, as is the case with normal cards, and they have different colors. However, this information is stored by the game in the map data, which cannot be influenced with the command.

Use [edit]

If you are outside of the displayed area, the landscape is shown in orange, dark brown and beige tones instead of as an empty beige area (map texture). Water is shown with horizontal lines, land as an empty area (normal map texture). The building that deals with the card is shown with a small icon. The direction in which the player is in relation to the section is shown as a small white point. Here, the top of the map is always north, so that you z. B. must move in the southwest when the point is in the upper right corner (i.e. northeast of the section).

If you approach the point shown, the size of the point doubles. If you move into the cutout, the discovery card fills up like a normal card. The building is still shown with the symbol. At a high scale, you can also recognize the forest property itself as a large brown block. This is not possible with ocean monuments because they are under water and so covered by the map water texture.

In contrast to normal maps, it is not possible to reduce the size of explorer maps. The standard scale for explorer maps is also 1: 4, for normal maps 1: 1.

Copies [edit]

To copy an explorer card, you put it together with an empty card in the crafting window. If you want to make several copies at the same time, add several blank cards (not stacked).
