After reading this thread about the poor legibility of the floor glyphs in Kroshkkur (I always did wonder what those blank squares of dirt were supposed to be), I have a better idea what you're going for here. And we already have an example of glyphs appearing in dialog text (the lore note in the Occult Egress), so there's precedent. Now, the code that puts the glyphs on the floor was clearly not written with the expectation that anyone else would need to know what glyph was on the floor, :? but such as it is, v5g.2 makes a stab at listing them as landmarks.

[Disclaimer: I've only tested this in Kroshkkur. When floor glyphs appear in other zones, do they also appear in a nice row like this? The glyph order does matter, after all, so I'd prefer to list them in the landmarks list in the proper order.]

Is it possible for us to get a customizable hotkey for go to landmark? So we can get to the place faster.

No, in other zones, the glyphs are not lined up but they're still read left-to-right.

I don't recall finding glyphs in the same column, but if that ever occurred, it'd probably be read up-to-down. Personally, I'd be ok if the glyph landmarks were listed in the order they were found (or however they're hashed). It'd be easy enough to revisit each landmark to figure out the correct order, just like you'd normally do without this addon; but this feature would make it easier to find the glyphs again and read what the (sometimes illegible) glyphs represent.

Of course, if you could order the glyphs in that proper order, that would be icing on the cake; but might be more technically challenging and borders on spoiler information.

Hmm, do you mean a "hotkey" hotkey, on the toolbar, or a keybinding, like <Alt-Shift-G> to open the talent point planner? [For reference, the latter would probably be significantly easier…]

Well, as it happens, that's the order I'm already listing them in, so it works out just as well. :wink:

Both will do just fine.
If we can get a customizable hotkey, player can better utilize this function. Bring up the Esc menu and then press L for choosing Landmark is not quick enough in my opinions.

A keybinding it is, then. v5h, just released, now provides the keybinding "Miscellaneous | Show known landmarks", defaulting to <Alt-Shift-L> and configurable in the usual manner via the Key Bindings dialog. And I'm already finding it so convenient that I can't believe I never did this before… :wink:

As you may have noticed, 1.7.4 tweaks the map tooltip for zone entrances, showing both min and max levels for the zone and scaling both according to the prevailing difficulty mode. Since we're also showing min level for zone entrances in our landmark list, I figured we should also pick up these changes; v5h.1 should cover that. Also tweaked the color of the estimated-distance part from yellow to green, so it doesn't blur into the level-range part. :wink:
