Map of Locations Within City?

Good day, New Babbagers:

I saw Mr. Tenk’s post about the National Drinking Month contest, which he mentioned will take place at Tomonah Hall in the Gut.  Since reading his post, I’ve been attempting in vain to locate said hall.  (I found the Gut, but not the hall.)

I’ve found a high-level map of the entire city, as well as a map of street names, and also a business directory.  But I’ve not yet found anything that would help me identify specific locations within the city.

Does such a map exist?

It’s a big city, and I’m having a devil of a time finding my way around. :-)

Any guidance in the matter would be most welcome!

Spread the love

      That solves the problem at hand – thank you!

    I will look into this matter directly for you, miss.

      I’m much obliged, Mr. Underby.

    I do believe such a map is in the works.  The difficulty with them is that so many of the “high profile” places within the city often change locations or vanish completely with such regularity that it would be hard to keep such a map accurate for long. 

    Although I do understand that there is a map out there kept up-to-date with all the pub locations marked on it…as well there should be.

      It’s that Continetal Drift thingy again, Misuss Underby, but on a City scale, so stuff keeps moving round!

      I’ve always wanted to create something that could be an extension of the Merchant Directory, dynamically pulling in the locations of key places into a map on the reader. (I actually remember doing a JQuery map of NB about a year ago when we were contemplating doing a ‘front-facing’ website). In theory, since the slurls contain coordinates, you could always take out the x and y coordinates and assign them to a pin on a map. Like the merchant directory, you could have categories or labels as well. Of course, I only have a faint idea how the merchant directory works.

        The problem Ms. Underby mentioned is understandable, which is why I wouldn’t be surprised if no such map exists.  I realize these things are dynamic.

        But I’m intrigued by the idea above – pins and labels would make it so much easier for newcomers to figure out where they’d like to go, or find something specific, and then discover the many hidden gems along the way.   (Just yesterday I found myself in a sheep meadow.  I never would have guessed that there would be a place so…..pastoral in NB!)

        Maybe I’ve not studied the merchant directory well enough though.  Does it contain only merchants, or also municipal and cultural locations?

          It’s mostly merchants, a few hotels. Basically, if someone decides to put down the marker on their land, it will show up on the list. It’s in no way a complete list.

          Granted, there are some things that I’d think you wouldn’t want to put a link to anyway. It does add a bit of mystery to stumble upon something.

            Yes, aimless exploring is fun, and discovering the many mysteries (small and large) of the city is exciting.  It’s nice to know how different parts of the city are laid out though.

            I seem to remember now that I stumbled across something (somewhere) that had a listing of the various areas and districts in NB.  Are you familiar with that?  I wish I would have grabbed it at the time.  I don’t recall if it was inworld or somewhere here.  That would probably be sufficient for my purposes at least!

      that’s why I blow mine up if I change location, nothing wrse than a vanishing building, but an exploding one is high entertainment

        As will be evidenced in the future in Las Vegas when older casinos are demolished….
