Postal code map

Recommended Posts

I believe it would be highly beneficial to add a postal code map to the server like they have on some other mods that will remain un-named.

A postal code map benefits everyone from police, to civilians, to criminals.  Instead of needing to throw someone a screenshot of where a meet-up is over discord or lead them from a landmark like the hospital or bank, one could throw them a postal code.

This counter-acts the fact that we do not have true GPS to lead us to addresses without knowing where they already are and setting a beacon.  I believe this would be a large quality of life improvement for navigation and communications between ALL factions.

Lost your car and need to grab a taxi to get it back? Tell the cab driver it's on Cholla Road in the viscinity of 572.  Boom, they know exactly where to go rather than needing to ask you turn by turn like a rookie.

For developers, there are already open source maps like this released, I'm unsure if any work would be needed to convert them from their respective mod to ours or not.  Attaching a photo from one said map.

Metagaming I smell.

 

Overall, it's a +1 from me if this is possible.

Now if people bleet, asking for the owner of a specifc adres I am like... Is that my house? xD
The current house addresses system is quite useless and it's a pain in the ass to give directions to taxi drivers sometimes.

We defensively need this, roads and named areas. You don't open any mapping software on your mobile device and not get them. Maybe not postal codes, but named areas and roads are very much needed.
