Sword icons on map. New feature?

Post by astrobryguy » Mon Oct 24, 2016 4:51 am

I just sat down to play some Silversword and I noticed some new crossed sword icons on my maps. :shock: Is this a new feature to mark encounter locations?

Hello,

Yes, I forgot to mention this in the update news I think, sorry.
Hope you like the feature. It does not show random encounters, obviously.

kind regards

One comment, the sword icon will appear before I've triggered an encounter, if I happen to be standing next to the encounter spot. Just to avoid spoiling the surprise, maybe set the icon not to appear until after the encounter has been triggered for the first time.

Hello,

oh sorry - yes, that should be changed.
Originally the sword icon feature was developed for a "climb" skill where you could climb trees to see your surroundings.
The "climb" skill hasn't made it into the game yet, but the sword icons did... my fault.

kind regards

I checked it again... they are showing due to an error in the app :-(
Will be fixed with the next update, sorry.

The swords will return, I promise ;-)

No problem! Sounds like a neat new feature!

BTW - I love the game. It's a lot of fun.

Actually I liked the sword icons because they kept my messy map markings to a minimum. I mark all fixed encounters for better grinding.

I take it the sword icons are not coming back? I don't mind, they sound like a nice map feature but not really necessary.
May the Vishanti guide me through this eldritch maze!
