    Map Views

    One of the big changed in T4 is the map and the way it works. The map has 3 levels of scroll allowing for different uses and in many ways is very simlar to external T3.6 world maps in the way it works.


    Standard Map



    Map 2




    Map 3



    World and Mini Map


    Much like many of the world map tools that were avilible on external sites for T3.6 Version 4 now has a mini map system.



    World Overview




    Normal map

    The map can be reached by clicking the third circle of the top menu. There you can see your neighbourhood and can interact with it in several ways. In order to actually do so you have to click a village and then one of the two options. On the right side of the village's detail page you can see additional information about the owner, e.g. his/her alliance or if you or one of your alliance mates has attacked or scouted this village before. You can move the map around by left click and hold with the mouse and then move around.
    Furthermore you can directly enter coordinates to move directly to your destination.

    Whilst in an Alliance

    Once you join an alliance, the borders of different villages will change colour. The colours corresponding to the following:
    - Yellow: This is one of your villages.
    - Dark blue: This village belongs to a member of your alliance.
    - Green: This villages belongs to a player who is a member of an alliance your alliance is confederated with.
    - Light blue: The owner of this village is part of an alliance that has a NAP (non aggression pact) with your alliance.
    - Black border: Your alliance is at war with the alliance of the owner of this village
    - Red: The owner of this village has no diplomatic relations with your alliance.

    Big map (Travian Plus-Feature)

    The big map can be viewed via the same menu button as the normal map.
    The big map works the same as the normal one - you simply see more tiles at once.

There are several areas called: “alliance”, “players”, “flags”.

    In the headline of each area is a little + (in green). If you press this plus, you can add an entry to the area (see also the context menu -> Mouse -> Right click).

    Map Signs and Symbols


    There are sevral types of signs and icons you may see on the map.

    Adventure




    Oasis




    Troop Movement


  5. #5

    Default

    Village Icons


    You can see the tribe of the owner of the village by looking at the wall. Each tribe is shown with a different wall. Just because you see a wall does not mean that a wall was actually built in the village.

    Depending on the size (inhabitants) of the village, there are 4 different graphics shown. If the village has only a few inhabitants, there is only a Granary shown along with the wall. The next level shows a Smithy additionally, and so on.

    ◦less 100 inhabitants
    ◦from 100 to 249 inhabitants
    ◦from 250 to 499 inhabitants
    ◦more than 500 inhabitants

    Additionally there are coloured villages (for example villages in your alliance) – these colours have not changed in T4!




    Burning Villages and Arrows

    If you look on the map and see some orange flames inside a village, this means that a fight took place in this village. At least one defending troop died.


    Someone attacked or raided that village and lost at least one troop. The arrow shows you the direction of the attacker.

    ^^ this image from http://t4.answers.travian.co.uk/ shows the outline

    The example below marks "your" village in black and the oases you are theoretically able to conquer in red. Please note that the map shows more than the radius you can conquer oasis from - the radius where you can conquer oasis from is therefore marked in blue. Hint: You can only have 3 oases per village.
