The InfoMap Project
InfoMap is a UI mod for the MMORPG Vanguard: Saga of Heroes that provides high quality maps, PoIs (Points of Interest) and other information for use ingame. The advantages of the maps in this mod are:
- Enhanced maps to aid navigation across Telon, including cities, riftways, dungeons and all continents.
- Various markers for travel, service, diplomacy and resource PoIs, plus locations for towns, outposts and dungeons and information about each zone.
- No problems with PoI limits, and can be used together with a CustomPoINames.txt file for any personal PoIs.
