LJG means one of the small marks connecting to league points that aren't connected by charts, but you can chart through them. Perhaps rotated 90 degrees is a better description than twisted.

And also I've been attacked by reds on Lynx-Olivia.

Ah, gotcha, it's facing the wrong way. I'll look out for it :)

Will update! That's red route #5.

I've been informed more than once that there is Thorianite there, so I would preferably like a much more conclusive report than that, as it's possible you've simply missed it.

Oh, and as a belated answer:

 
Am I reading Wrasse as Lobella and Nettle?


Not if you're seeing it right. It should read as Lobelia and Pokeweed Berries. (Lobelia's not got a use yet, but pokeweed berries are great if you have a monger nearby that pays decent for herbs)

I mainly need difficulty data for jet, coral, sapphire, pearl, and opal now. There's a new map coming.


On Monsoon-Durian (almost positive, if not it was the first league of Monsoon-Angelfish) I've been nailed by an orange and a yellow.

Don't think I've been attacked by anything non-green in Pearl. I know that doesn't substantively help you, but I don't suspect too many hard routes there.

There are hard routes from Cleo in Pearl, last I heard, but thanks... I'll set the rest to green for now.

That's the diagonal route off the eastern side of monsoon, yes? If so, I'll mark monsoon-turongo as yellow.

I may have just gotten lucky out of Cleo. Heck, I may have just gotten lucky out of Pearl. :)

Monsoon/Durian is the one straight out, to the right, at 3:00. Monsoon/Angelfish is at about 1:30.

Is that one still spawning, or do you have it memmed? It's on my list of "illegal" routes, as the devs called them :)

I'm memming it; it's not spawning.

It may also have been on Monsoon-Turongo (gah! my last post should also have said Turongo, not Angelfish! My apologies.)

Re: Island Labeling Reply to this Post

Suggestion, make the circle icon for greenie able islands (I believe that requires Palace, Market, Inn, Bank, hrm what else...) because you mark several islands with a triangle which have had palaces (supposedly the requirement for a circle) for a few weeks.

/me shrugs

And thank you for providing such a wonderful and updating map of the ocean. I find your maps Absolutely Essential.

I can't. I don't know what the requirement IS for an island to accent greenies.

EDIT: Just to confirm this: Apparantly my requirement for a circle is pretty much synonymous with accepting greenies- it's just that certain islands (it may be all islands other than the original 7, I don't know) have a bug stopping them from spawning greenies.

So you got your wish, anyway :)

I can confirm that the the two leagues out from Eps towards Emp can be shaded cyan. I kept getting attacked by the cyan buggers while memming today. (My copy of the yppforagexxl.png file only has the first league shaded, and it's hard to tell what shade it is)

And I add my thanks for this really big version. Dare I hope someday there'll be an even BIGGER version? :) (With this one, though, I can tell the difference between stone, iron, and chalcocite! Yay!)

Now, if I remember correctly, you wanted more distinct commodity graphics? I'll annotate the large one with letters and numbers, if that helps?

That's a good question. The XXL version, I can tell almost all the comms apart, but I have less colorblindness than most. I still have trouble with the herbs, though.

I think labeling the comms, with crisp numbers or letters, instead of/in addition to the graphics would be useful. I'm a little afraid of how cluttered the map might get with both numbers AND graphics, though.

A pure black and white version or grey-tones version, would also be useful for the severely color-blind, with letters instead of graphics.

The colours on the map at the moment aren't really nessecary to use it, EXCEPT in the case of the forage one.

I'll do a letters-only version later on.

For now, I've just updated with the changes we can see in Diamond and Emerald due to the market bidding release.

It's on at least one of the map keys, but you can find them on any islands that are marked with diamonds. (ie. any island with no buildings on it, or any island that you can forage on)

I checked out your site it was very informative. I got to Ost. all the time and never knew there were monsters there. Thanks. Do you just go on the island and find them there?

The way you'll know is that when you leave your ship and set foot on the island, it will be cursed with darkness. This darkness lifts when you defeat the Monsters. :)

No specific idea, although I imagine it wouldn't be too often, to avoid free swords and clothes gumming up the economy.

Heh...not sure how often the skellies appear on the islands, but there was about 7 days running when people from my flag found them and began organizing groups to take them out.

They're probably out there SOMEWHERE at any given time, you just have to find them.

There is always a time between beating them and reappearing, but I would imagine apart from that, you are correct.

All diamond-shaped islands on my map can have skellies appear on them. This is a known gameplay mechanic. There is no longer any need to list where skellies can spawn, so long as I update the map for new triangle-shaped islands.

You seem to have the whole world mapped, thank ye because I had no idea where everything was.

Since you seem to be an expert, what is the most precious and expensive thing to forage for, and what island is it on?

Lorandrite is the most expensive foraging item followed by Yarrow. The most expensive item is Kraken's blood which makes the black clothing. These are winable/foragable items and I'm not counting ships.
