So any ideas if a map would be good? I know it'd be copying cube world if you do it right but that doesn't make it bad.

I like the 3d scaled model of the world, much easier to use.

Maybe start with no map then craft a paper map and eventually a GPS type of gizmo. That could be interesting.

Yeah i like that idea. Makes you appreciate it more than just handing it to you from the start. Good thinking Mayo

Indeed we want a scalable UI, depending on what you have crafted and equipped.

There is a map in the story but when I dug into a wall, I pretty much got lost instantly.

Everything around you is dark and you have no idea if you're above or below the shown map level.

The map only works while you are in the dungeon.
As soon as you go outside the boundaries, the map will simply show nothing.
This is our first iteration on this game mechanic, we will surely improve it in the future.

The current approach - even if only intended for dungeons - might be usable for outside areas, too.

I see 2 basic approaches.

1. What you have now: a horizontal cut through the terrain.
If the player moves above or below this level, the map changes dynamically to show the next slice.
Only it would have finer vertical resolution than your dungeon map.

2. The map shows the "surface" you can walk along.
This would require the game to check which blocks you can path to which would probably be too erratic and too difficult to "get right".

Related to maps - I would like the ability to add my own waypoint (like "North Pole" or "Rohk Camp". I find that navigation aid very helpful!
