New World Team Will Allow Third-Party Add-on To Replace Mini-Map

Posted: Nov 13, 2021

Since the appearance of a mini-map add-on in New World, fans have been discussing whether the game should include this tool or whether Amazon Games allows it to be used. Based on this, the development team recently gave an exact answer. A developer said that due to other more urgent matters, they have no plans to implement a minimap for the time being, but they are also actively paying attention to topics discussed in the community and may change their stance in the future.

The team states they worry that it meshing with the action combat style and world design in New World may destroy immersion, limit exploration motivation, and there are technical limitations. The current Compass system meets all players' needs for direction. Situational awareness is something that is valued in New World. They worry that adding a mini-map may cause damage and hinder players from exploring and adventuring Aeternum.

Although they have no plans to add a mini-map, they will allow players to use the third-party mini-map add-on provided by Overwolf, which is also the most popular addons in the game.

Once this mod is allowed, you need to follow the corresponding set of rules, which IGGM has listed for you.

The mini-map can:

* Show player position

* Show folks in the group as New World does on the compass

* Only show node placement if they’ve unlocked that node via tradeskills, provided it is within the range that compass would display them.

* Only show AI that players have unlocked via tradeskills within range of compass.

* Show quests as they do on the compass

In any case, this can be regarded as a response to the needs of fans, and it can also optimize the game experience. As for other resources in the game, you can come to IGGM to buy New World Coins. This is also how you can easily get Coins without spending too much time and energy. IGGM has started a discount activity, as long as you come here to buy New World Coins with code "NW5", you can enjoy 5% off. So players who want to get cheap New World Coins will not want to miss this.
