You can also get an lmap by typing 'M' at the march prompt.

[##:##] Command : map # >mapfil

where your "realm" (or '#', see Info: realm or Info: update) is -5:5,-6:6 will type out a 11 by 13 sector map and also put the map in the file called "mapfil".

Also, if you give a ship # instead of coordinates or a realm, map will show you a small realm around the given ship (assuming you own it).

If you use nmap, you can get a map that shows new sector designations instead of old sector designations of your own country.

If you use lmap, you can get a map around a land unit. If you use pmap, you can get a map around a plane. If you use smap, you can get a map around a ship. If you use nmap, you can get a map around a nuke.

Map Flags Edit

Optional argument <MAP-FLAGS> consists of map flag characters. If you specify an 's' flag, map will put your ships on the map. If you specify an 'l' flag, map will put your land units on the map. If you specify an 'p' flag, map will put your planes on the map. If you specify an 'n' flag, map will put your nukes on the map. A '*' will put all on the map. When multiple unit types are selected they are displayed in the following priority order: nukes, land units, ships, planes. To highlight sectors you own, specifiy the 'h' flag.
