Know the difference between Blackburrow and Crushbone?
Your Great Divide from your Western Wastes?
Test your knowledge by being placed somewhere in Norrath and dropping a pin on the map!
What is a "guessr" game?
Popularized by GeoGuessr, you the player are dropped into a 3D photosphere and have to drop a pin on mini-map to guess where that photosphere is.
How did you do this for a 20+ year old game?
Patience and a lot of cloudy pots! I would go to a location and take six screenshots that I then stitched together in Photoshop to make a panaroma.
When I saw a guessr game come out for World of Warcraft on LostGamer, I knew that the EQ community needed their own special version.
Will there be a Leaderboard?
Short answer no. Leaderboards and multiplayer have a large overhead of server cost, user accounts, preventing bots, preventing cheating.. and I don't have the spare time to implement all that.
What about more expansions, like Luclin or Planes of Power?
Since EQ doesn't have a minimap, and is very 3D based (multiple stories, underground, etc), I had to rely on the old EQAtlas hand drawn maps, and those don't exist beyond a few low level zones in Luclin and nothing at all for PoP.
Who am I?
Silvae on the Aradune server ;)
