Many thanks.

It is a Herculean effort no doubt. And now Severlin is talking about . . .

A new interview was released by MMOCentral with Severlin that says U23 will be the Grey Mountains, which are to the north of Erebor and Mirkwood. It will possibly include Mount Gundabad, which in lore is a major orc stronghold, but was once an important Dwarven site. The mountains were also home to many dragons. It will come with some instances.

Ver 1.20

Ver 1.20 has been uploaded. Ver 1.20 contains the new Northern Mirkwood area in Rhovanion as well as a few internal changes in preparation for some future functionality.

If anyone sees anything odd in Rhovanion, particularly at zoom levels greater than 2, please report the issue. All of the pre-zoomed tiles had to be replaced as a result of the region being more compact (Erebor is now closer to southern mirkwood than it was when it was just an instance). I believe I eliminated all of the ghost images left by the shifting of the pre-zoomed tiles but if I missed anything, let me know.

I apologize for the really, really late release of this update, I got sidetracked by a number of RL issues but better late than never.

For anyone that stumbles on the notes about Custom Annotations, they are not currently implemented, but ... soon...

Rhovanion is a weird region. Before U22 it consists of a large area starting with Lothlorien and Mirkwood, south through all of Rhohan plus a medium sized are that is Moria to the west of Lothlorien. It additionally has several small, disconnected areas that are Zirakzigil (just north of Moria), Beorn's cabin (north east of Zirakzigil) and finally the Dale area in the far north east from some of the instances. U22 fills in part of the area north of Mirkwood toward Dale - Beorn's cabin actually got moved slightly to make room for it. I'm still piecing together the forested areas of U22 - all those trees look the same! so it will be awhile yet.

Patience is a virtue (and once upon a time a Community Manager). U22 (North Mirkwood) is still in Beta. North Mirkwood won't be added to TerrainMap for a couple of weeks after the terrain hits the live servers (it takes time to identify and piece together the terrain, create the pre-zoomed tiles, locate and add the annotations etc.) which is likely still several weeks away.

Thanks for the info, I'll add it to my data on the next update.

Thanks for reporting that. Turns out there were two errors in that version of the TMSearch.lua file.

EDIT:
The fix is posted and available for download.

Correct placement is important since TerrainMap not only shows the cursor coordinates as you move over the map but also places annotations on the map as well as showing the player position when the position icon is clicked.

Thanks.

As to instanced areas being excluded, mostly it is because they use coordinates that don't work with the rest of the world. Interiors have a separate coordinate system and most of the instanced exteriors are simply placed in parts of the world where they don't really belong. Areas like Sammath Naur are exterior areas but if you look at your compass coordinates while you are there you will see that you have been suddenly teleported many, many leagues away from where you should be. In the case of Sammath Naur it seems the world builders couldn't fit the Sammath Naur terrain into the area on the top of Orodruin where it belongs so they just moved it far north of where they expect any real Mordor terrain to ever exist. Moria is an exception since it is a huge cave but uses exterior coordinates in Rhovanion and sort of fits into the right place.

There are a few instances that use exterior locations that do fit with their actual locations in the world such as the lonely mountain and dale instances. Those that I have identified are on the map. Odinson just provided a clue that helped me place the terrain from the Session Play "At the Stone of Erech" which is a second age version of Blackroot Vale but uses coordinates from the Eriador region. I have assembled many other small terrain segments that represent instances and if I ever get a chance to verify the coordinates for any of them and they fit into the right place on the map I will eventually add them.
