Treasure Map How To
(October 6, 2010)
Preface
How to hunt treasure without mining in Ultima Online with the changes in treasure maps in 2010.
This tutorial will teach you how to use GIMP and UOAM to find the exact location of a treasure map in UO.

Treasure Map marker
We will be using a pre made marker similiar to the one to the left. Allowing us to pinpoint the location!

External Tools
1) GNU Image Manipulation Program (http://www.gimp.org)
2) UO Auto Map (http://uoam.net)
3) Treasure map image file (tmap.xcf)

1) Take a screenshot of the map and crop it
Treasure Map
Using the cartography skill decode the treasure map by double click on it.
Use the "Print Screen" key to copy a screenshot to the windows clipboard.
Import the clipboard's image into gimp by going to File > Create > From Clipboard, or by clicking CTRL + SHIFT + V.
Cropping the screenshot Crop tool icon
Use the Cropping Tool to select a small portion of the treasure map. After selecting the area with the cropping tool left click anywhere in the selected space to crop.


2) Resize the image by 1600%
Resizing the image
From the GIMP menu bar select Image > Scale Image...
Resizing the image at 1600 percent
Change the drop down box for image size to Percent and enter 1600.00 in the "Width" and "Height" text fields.


3) Select the cropped portion and copy it to the clipboard
Select entire layer
With the blown up image select the entire layer and copy it to the windows clipboard.
From the GIMP menu bar choose Select > All, or press CTRL + A.
Followed by Edit > Copy, or CTRL + C.


4) Paste the layer and move the layer below the markers
pasting into the tmap.xcf file
Open the tmap.xcf file and paste the enlarged cropped version of the treasure map we modified above.
From the GIMP menu bar choose Edit > Paste, or CTRL + V
layer window pasted layer moving the layer
Notice the layer window will show a "Floating selection (Pasted Layer)". Click on the new layer button at the bottom of the layers section. Drag the "Pasted Layer below the markers section.


5) Move the pasted layer underneath the treasure map marker

Using the "Move Tool" grab the "Pasted Layer image and do your best to match the treasure map markers


6) Using "difference" to match the treasure map marker

We can use the "difference" layer effect to match the markers. Select the "tmap marker" layer in the layers tool and change the mode to "Difference".
matched layers! move tool icon
Use the "Move Tool" on the "Pasted Layer". When the marker image is matched on both the "tmap marker" layer and the "pasted layer" layer the treasure map marker will turn completely black.


7) Find the location in UOAM (remove tilt and tracking)

Take a screenshot of the UO Auto Map client and crop it similar to step 1. Copy the newly cropped image to the clipboard


8) Align the UOAM pasted layer
paste into xcf
Paste the image into the tmap.xcf file as we did in step 4 for the treasure map.
Use the move tool to align the images the best you can.
using difference to align layers
You can use the difference tool as we did in step 6 to try to match similarities between the layers.


9) Go to the location and start digging!

Our first attempt had something on top of the chest. If this happens take a step back and try again.


10) Clear the Guardian's
treasure guardians
The initial wave of chest guardians can be quite overwhelming. You must destroy all of the guardians before you can attempt to pick the chests lock.


11) Unlock the chest
picking the lock
While attempting to unlock the chest you run the risk of destroying the items inside. If your lock picking skill is not up to par you may want to try to use "A Skeleton Key". Failed lock pick attempts will result in damaged items inside the chest.
A special creature may appear while you are picking the lock called "A Grubber". These creatures will steal loot from the chest, you had best be ready to kill them quick.


12) Remove the chests trap
removing the trap
Even though you have picked the chest you still have to remove the trap. You can do this easily as a mage with the telekenisis spell. Take a few steps back and target the chest. If the chest is under a tree or bushes try using the last target macro. (more information on targeting macros can be found here http://oev.hilands.com/tips-targetingsystem.html)


13) Loot the chest
Obtaining the treasure
As you loot the chest there is a chance more monsters will appear. Only one monster will appear per dragged item. If you stop dragging items monsters will not spawn.


14) Final Location of map
log location
I've already had a duplicate location since the latest publish, so I have been creating screenshots of the map at the final location with the coordinates listed in UO Auto Map or UO Cartographer.

My grandson has Down    Submitted By : Naren    ( 2015-11-10    11:48:07 )
My grandson has Down Syndrome. My dauthger found out when she was still pregnant with him and had a genetic test done to see if he had our hereditary skin disorder, she was only 22 at the time so we never dreamed that he'd have DS, but not only did the test come back to reveal he had our skin disorder (wasn't a big deal) but he had DS. My dauthger called me devastated at first, but one thing that NEVER entered her mind was ending the pregnancy or getting rid of the baby through adoption. The Dr.s asked her many, times about abortion and finally my dauthger got angry and told them "I already told you several time I'm NOT getting an abortion, I'm keeping the baby so leave me alone and don't ask me again!) She went about learning everything she could about DS to prepare herself for caring for this special little boy that was going to enter our family.Since then, he is now three years old and one of the greatest joys of our lives. Yes he went through a lot, heart surgery, we almost lost him due to a skin infection after surgery etc. but he's a strong willed little boy and came through it like a champ and is doing very well now. He's not walking yet, and barely started cruising but he's on his way. He doesn't talk, however he does sign a little and so does baby brother who's about a head taller than he is haha. Tyler also has a Mickey button to receive tube feedings at night, hopefully he'll be off of that soon, but he's an amazing kid with a wonderful sense of humor and shows so much love, but he also has his days where he don't even want to be looked at haha. His teacher used to always say "he's on Tyler time today" when he didn't want to do his therapy and he continues to be on Tyler time, but he's a great kid and she couldn't be happier that she chose to not even let it be an option of rather to keep him or not. She couldn't imagine life without him and neither could any of us. He's treated the same as the other two boys, his baby brother and their cousin so he's not treated any different other than we praise him over every small new thing he does that most kids learn naturally, even baby brother claps for him and praises him when he does something new and is successful. I just wish more people would think and get educated before making a lifetime decision. I also wish that more Dr.'s, nurses, and other medical professionals would stop making it so much worse than it is and stop encouraging or even pushing parents into abortion.
