Navigating the World

Panning and zooming the map works similar to most map applications. Click+drag or touch+drag will pan the map. The mouse wheel or touch pinch will zoom. There is also a navigation popup on the right sidebar that provides pan and zoom controls. Finally, the arrow keys will pan the map, and +/- zoom.

The simplest way to move a unit is to drag it. Click-drag or touch-drag to where you want the unit to be, and release. The unit will be moved in a straight line to that square.

If you want a more complex path, you can use waypointed movement. Double click or long press the unit you wish to move. Single click or touch various points of your path. Finally, double click or long press at your destination.

Menus and Popups

In the titlebar and the sidebar are a number of useful buttons and popus. Next to the world name is the world menu. From here you can access the world's cameras, wiki, forums. Game masters can also access the world's units, maps, and players, and change the map they are viewing. At the bottom are a list of other game worlds you have access to.

Next is a profile popup. From here you can access your profile page, change some option, and logout. Next to the profile menu is a button with your unit's name on it. Clicking it will center the map on your unit and cause it to "bounce". The 'Clear Paths' button will remove various markup from the map. Finally on the right side of the titlebar are some round counter controls.

On the top of the sidebar is the units popup, which lists the active units of the current map. Next is the toolbox popup, for adding and removing terrain features. The toolbox is only visible to Gamemasters. Next is a wiki page popup, useful for viewing character pages or notes stored in the wiki. The navigation popup has some additiona pan/zoom controls and a restore button. The restore button resets the pan/zoom to the default for the current map. Finally at the bottom is the chat popup, where you can text chat with the other players.

In the upper left corner there is a icon for Patreon, where you can become a Premuim member with a larger world and more players. Next to that are links to our social media page. There is a menu for our help pages.

Gamemaster Features

In the navigation popup, there are a couple Gamemaster options for managing the default view of a Map. The first, 'Save View', sets the current view as the default for the current map. Whenever someone switches to this map, this will be their starting view. The second 'Save & Set View', saves the view as above, then changes the view of everyone connected to the new view.
