Thumbtack (Slash Command)

From Unofficial Homecoming Wiki

Slash Command

/thumbtack coordinates

Places thumbtack markers in the UI (as detailed below) according to the input coordinates

Input Coordinates

Coordinates can be input as a comma- or space-delimited list of the X Y Z values used by the game to denote position in 3 dimensions. The list should be provided without enclosing symbols. The following are valid examples of thumbtack input coordinates:

  • /thumbtack 10.0 20.0 30.0
  • /thumbtack 10, 20, 30

Note that the X value denotes horizontal position in the east-west direction, the Y value denotes vertical position (altitude), and the Z value denotes horizontal position in the north-south direction. More information may be found on the Coordinates page.

UI Markers

The thumbtack marker will be placed in three areas of the UI, similar to how a thumbtack is manually placed by left-clicking a location on the mini-map:

  • A red X marker on the mini-map
  • A red X marker on the compass in the nav window
  • A yellow navigational marker denoting location and distance from the player in the game world

Usage Variations

Entering comma- or space-delimited coordinates directly into chat surrounded by square brackets will cause the game to echo the coordinates as a clickable thumbtack link that functions in the same manner as the /thumbtack command and can be clicked by anyone within the chat channel used. Similarly, the $loc variable will translate the character's current coordinates into a thumbtack link in the current chat channel. The /loc command and the /whereami command will translate the character's current coordinates into a thumbtack link viewable by the player, which can then be copy/pasted into any chat channel.
