Location name search
Help for location search by name
By default any text typed will be partial-matched to location name(s), including the alternative names known to Pupunen Maps database.
You can use * wildcard token to match any character (0 or more), and ? to match exactly one (any) character.
For example 'for*t' would match 'fort', 'forest', etc. Note that * and ? will match any character, including space.
You can also use ^ to anchor the match to name string start, e.g. ^ab will match only location names that start with 'ab' (case-insensitive).
Same goes for $ to match string end. However, the matching style is otherwise "glob", not regular expression.
Map search pattern
Help for map pattern search
The following characters act as wildcards (they match any character):
*, @, X, ?, %, C and
whitespace, thus searching exact matches for player cities
(C), shrines (%) and location markers (?) is not possible.
*, @ and X will be used to center the
search coordinates if they are present in the pattern. If no such
character is present, the coordinates listed in search results
will be for the top-left corner of the search pattern.
The search pattern must be "clean", e.g. output from
'look' with ships/NPCs/etc or direct copy-paste with anything
extranous other than the map data itself will not work.
Output of 'map' command is good, also 'wizard eye' spell.
For other sources you will have to be creative and careful with copy-pasting.
Remember that only the selected maps will be searched for matches.
If you get no results, perhaps you have unselected the one that has
