The primary use of the map is to be able to use it to be able to view the map screen (refer to gallery). The map screen allows the player to see the terrain of the island they are on, the location of map markers that can be placed via the editor, and the location and orientation of the player themselves. It does not show any objects or items on the map, however, and there is no way to place map markers without the editor or mods. The player is shown as a green arrow facing in the direction that the player is actually facing, and map nodes can take on many different shapes. Mousing over a map node allows the player to see more information about that location.
