  1. Hey all,
    I've come up with this idea, where you can do /map show [player(s)] (example: /map show playername, playername ect.) That basically lets only the selected players view you on the map.
    Uses:
    If you own an outpost, you don't want everyone seeing you on the map, but you want the members seeing you, so they know how to get there/know where you are. It can be annoying having to keep /map hide on all the time, and having /map show on all the time can attract griefers/unwanted players.
    I really hope this feature gets added. It will be very useful.

  2. Maybe your friends only?

  3. But maybe you don't even want your friends seeing you? ;)

    I really like this idea, but I don't know if this is (easily) possible, as we don't have to login to use the map, so how can it then see who you are? But I still like the idea. :)

  4. I think this is a bit too much, if you need to know where a friend is or let a friend know where you are, you can just give coordinates. That's what they're there for. I'd assume the work to make this happen would kinda outweigh the benifits. Don't get me wrong it would be nice, but I don't think I'd get too much use out of it.

  5. Unless Aikar hooks the live map to your account, this isn't possible (as far as I know).

  6. Can be done through IP's. Dynmap has a chat feature which uses account names based on their IP on the server and through the site.
  7. Or maybe this could be a benefit of the upcoming group feature - you can see members of your group but if you have done /map hide then nobody else can see you..
