n the last teaser for this year's summer update we would like to present you a new Cyclopedia feature. Since the test server will already start in a few hours, we will focus on a short overview.
In the upper right corner of your client interface you will find a button that will open the new feature: The Cyclopedia Map!
You can choose between two different display modes. The Surface View provides an in-game graphic display of Tibia's surface and all layers (floors) above. The Map View provides the classic minimap view. Layers that are situated below Tibia's surface will always be displayed in the Map View.
The Cyclopedia Map is subdivided in different areas and subareas. Areas always describe a larger territory of land mass such as Thais. Within this area, there are different subareas such as Thais City, Thais Surroundings or Thais Trolls' Cave to stick to our example.
Discover the map
Many subareas of an area can be discovered. Select the respective subarea name by mouse click and press the "Start Discovering" button.
Several Points of Interest will now be randomly placed in the selected subarea. You will have to find at least seven of them in order to discover the subarea completely.
Those points are only visible in the game window of the respective character and can be reset if required.
Once you have fully discovered enough subareas, you will unlock new useful functions of the Cyclopedia Map:
If you have fully discovered at least 30% of all subareas of an area, locations of NPCs within that respective area will be shown on the map.
At a minimum of 70%, passages to subareas on other map layers and teleports are displayed as stair symbols on the map.
Once all subareas of an area have been discovered, creatures that occur in those subareas are listed when you click on a subarea's name or on a passages symbol that leads to this subarea. Creatures for which the Bestiary entry has not yet been unlocked are displayed as a silhouette.
You might want to pay a visit to NPC Charos from time to time since players who have completely discovered 10 areas can look forward to a new outfit. Discovering 15 and 20 areas unlocks the first and second addons respectively.
