Coordinates in Anarchy Online can be a really useful way of finding your team, but can sometimes lead to more headaches and problems than actually easing the situation! There are ways, however, that you can use coordinates very easily. This guide will aim to outline them for you.

1. Using your minimap with coordinates
2. Using the /waypoint command
3. Using a chat script for others to find you

Using your minimap

You can access your minimap using CTRL 6. It will open, by default, to the right hand side in your AO Window.

Even if you do not have a map for a particular playfield, you can still add coordinates to the minimap to gain a waypoint on your compass.

With your minimap open, click the "i" in the top left corner

Minimap.


When you click the "i" you will be able to select the option "show buttons". With this selected your minimap will have new input boxes available to you when you have it open.

Coordinate boxes.


You can then enter in the X-Coordinate followed by the Y-Coordinate in the second box and then click the "Add Waypoint" button.

This will give you a waypoint marker on your compass which you can follow.

Using the /waypoint command

Instead of using the above technique described for the minimap, you can input text to set your waypoint for a given playfield.

This works via the following command:

/waypoint XCoord YCoord Playfieldnumber


So, say for example, you wanted to go to Rompa in Omni1 Entertainment, you would input the following:

/waypoint 700 680 705


Where 700 is the X Coordinate, 680 is the Y coordinate and 705 is Omni1 Entertainments playfield number. When you are in Omni1 Entertainment, you will literally be able to input this command and then follow your compass marker to the door of the bar.

Where do I get coordinate information from?
Sometimes mission information will have coordinates in them and playfield names. With missions though, it is usually just easier to upload the mission information to your map.

Perhaps you want to give someone else your coordinates so they can find you. To do this, you simply need to press SHIFT F9. This will bring up your characters information. In there you should see text that resembles this:

Extended location information: - 446.3, 340.0, 25.0 (446.3 340.0 y 25.0 566)


In this, you can see your X, Y and Z coordinate, followed by the playfield number at the end of the bit in brackets.

It could also be the case though that you wish to send people to coordinates of a zone and you do not know the playfield number. For example, Eroded Ancient Statue for Omni to access to get to the Shadowlands with a garden key is located at 1030 x 2000, Southern Artery Valley. You would need to give someone the playfield number for SAV to enable them to reach this location easily with the /waypoint command.

Inside area playfield numbers may not work, this is because they are instanced. Even if an area has its own general number, when you enter an instance you get a completely unique number for that instance of the playfield. You can find a listing of outside playfield numbers below:

Using a chat script for others to find you


Although waypoints are handy for you to come back to some location, it would be most useful if you could give your current coordinate to some else in order to make it easier for them to find you. Instead of merely sending them your coordinates, you can use a chat script to provide them a way to quickly get a waypoint at your location.

Start by creating an script and name it whatever you wish. (If you need more information regarding creating scripts, consult this guide.) Now paste the following text into your newly created script.


:

Get a marker to my position >>>> <a href="text://<center><font color=CCInfoHeadline>Waypoint</div><p><font color=CCInfoText>Click the link (or image) below to get a marker on your map showing where I am<p><p><a href='chatcmd:///waypoint %2 %3 %9'><img src='rdb://11336'></u> Get coordinates</a>">Click here</a>


Now when you want to give someone else your location, start by obtaining your current location using Shift-F9. Select everything starting at the hyphen to the end of the coordinates and copy it to your clipboard. (See the underlined part of the line in the example below.)

Extended location information: - 446.3, 340.0, 25.0 (446.3 340.0 y 25.0 566)


In your chat window, type the name of your script preceded by a slash (/) and then paste the stuff you copied before. The final result will look something like what is displayed below if you named your script "my_location". (The underlined part is what you pasted.)

/my_location - 446.3, 340.0, 25.0 (446.3 340.0 y 25.0 566)


The receiver of your message will get a link that they can click on which will open a window with a link on it. When they click on the link, they will get a waypoint at your current location.
