Thumbtack (Slash Command)
Places thumbtack markers in the UI (as detailed below) according to the input coordinates
- This command was first introduced by Homecoming in Issue 27 Page 2.
Coordinates can be input as a comma- or space-delimited list of the X Y Z values used by the game to denote position in 3 dimensions. The list should be provided without enclosing symbols. The following are valid examples of thumbtack input coordinates:
- /thumbtack 10.0 20.0 30.0
- /thumbtack 10, 20, 30
Note that the X value denotes horizontal position in the east-west direction, the Y value denotes vertical position (altitude), and the Z value denotes horizontal position in the north-south direction. More information may be found on the Coordinates page.
The thumbtack marker will be placed in three areas of the UI, similar to how a thumbtack is manually placed by left-clicking a location on the mini-map:
- A red X marker on the mini-map
- A red X marker on the compass in the nav window
- A yellow navigational marker denoting location and distance from the player in the game world
Entering comma- or space-delimited coordinates directly into chat surrounded by square brackets will cause the game to echo the coordinates as a clickable thumbtack link that functions in the same manner as the /thumbtack command and can be clicked by anyone within the chat channel used. Similarly, the $loc chat variable will translate the character's current coordinates into a thumbtack link in the current chat channel. The /loc command and the /whereami command will translate the character's current coordinates into a thumbtack link viewable by the player, which can then be copy/pasted into any chat channel.
