The Map

The ADRIFT map provides a 3 Dimensional view of the world the player is in.  Each location on the map is represented by a rectangle, and each connection between locations is drawn by a line.  Because the map is 3D, up/down directions can also be shown,

The map in Developer is a designer, so locations can be added directly on the map, and the layout can be configured within the map itself.  See further details on connecting locations.

The map controls within Developer are as follows:

Keyboard shortcuts

You can completely rebuild the map from the location exits by selecting the map and pressing Ctrl-Shift-R.  Only do this if the map has become corrupt or you wish to start over again, as the operation is irreversible other than by restoring the adventure.

If you create a new location in your adventure, and do not link it to any other locations, ADRIFT will create a new page on the map, and create the location on this page.  You can move locations from one page to another by right-clicking on them, and selecting Move to page.  You can also rename each page by right-clicking on the tab and selecting Rename Page.
