How to delete a red pin

Someone added a red pin called "Cave filled with ore". I need help getting rid of it. Tmfeldman (talk) 20:48, September 7, 2017 (UTC)

Hey. Why exactly does the pin need deleting? - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 16:03, September 8, 2017 (UTC)

Need help editing.

I am trying to add some treasure chest not just n the map but keep getting the page is locked to prevent vandalism. I am signed up to edit. And help is appreciated. Wallflip (talk) 11:57, March 10, 2017 (UTC)

Map is missing all icons...?

I came back from dinner to update some pins for Korok Seeds, loaded up the map to find that it's not displaying anything. Been hitting refresh and closing my browser for at good ten minutes. Everything was there--shrines, seeds, quests, settlement icons, etc.--approximately an hour ago.

Nathrien (talk) 22:08, March 15, 2017 (UTC)

EDIT: Ah, nevermind. Everything is back. I guess it was refreshing itself? Problems always fix themselves the moment I open my mouth!

Nathrien (talk) 22:09, March 15, 2017 (UTC)

@Nathrien - When people add pins, if they typo or make other errors, it will block all pins from working. Many editors such as myself monitor and correct these errors when they occur and then it works again. This has happened several times since we started.

How do I add a pin?

Heya I found a Korok Seed that wasn't shown on the map yet and am trying to add a pin to it...could I get some help please? :o the preceding unsigned post by Josie94 (contribs) at 00:29, March 19, 2017‎ (UTC)

Sure. Just edit this page and add a new line to the bottom like {{Pin/Seed|lat|lng|nearest landmark|ID}} - make an ID one higher than the last line. There are more instructions here if you want to add an image and more info about the seed. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 01:47, March 19, 2017 (UTC)
To find the right lat and lng to use, click on the map to drop a pin, and drag it to the precise location of the seed. It'll tell you the coordinates for that point. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 01:48, March 19, 2017 (UTC)

Partial Image Corruption

Two image files in the map appear to have small levels of corruption displaying white spot blobs, I can confirm this defect is carried over to lower levels of zoom, at level 5 the offending files are: 23-11 and 22-19. I have manually fixed the images on the fifth level of zoom and could provide them if necessary but it'd be better if whoever got the originals could re-rip them without the corruption. Furthermore I can assert this are the two only occurrences of this type of corruption (white overwriting the values underneath and some chromatic aberration on the white). AsteriskAmpersand (talk) 2:23, March 24, 2017

Thanks for pointing that out! Fortunately the base file I have doesn't have the corruptions so I was able to re-cut those sections. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 04:29, March 24, 2017 (UTC)

Additional Pin Types


I'm not sure if this has already been considered, but I think it would be a great idea to add some additional pin types. The biggest one that comes to mind is a pin type for guardian stalkers. I'm currently farming these things and I've used up pretty much all my in game pins marking guardian locations. Another thing that might be nice to add would icons for specific types of treasure. The category "Treasure" is really broad and being used to death. Anyways, thanks for your consideration. ShadowCat (talk) March 30, 2017

This would require new icons to be created, but I personally could see the merit of a much more in-depth community-created map of these features, including such items as in-world weapon spawn points. A casual reminder that the Royal Claymore atop the Woodland Tower, like all in-world weapon spawns, respawns with every Blood Moon and as such is an excellent destination for replenishing equipment during midgame. I've also put a stamp at the Akkala labyrinth to remind myself of a Great Flameblade spawning location... now I don't have to feel bad about USING them. --Greymaria (talk) 03:34, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Many people have been adding 'treasure' which aren't chests but are weapons in the world. If we weren't using these icons for bosses, I would want to use the sword/shield/bow icons, I assume that's what they're meant for. However, I don't like map clutter. Weapons respawn and there's plenty of them in the game. It would be equivalent to mapping every enemy, mushroom, lizard, and butterfly. Potentially helpful when you need a butterfly, but man would it clutter up the map when you don't. Thortok2000 (talk) 10:44, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
That Great Flameblade, seriously! I think I still have the same one I first found, and in brand new condition. So great for starting fires (I know of a few other places to find it too btw). Didn't realize Blood Moon was what respawned weapons, thanks for that :) Anyways, yes I considered new icons would need to be created, and I agree to retasking the sword, shield, and bow icons to what they actually represent. And true the map could get really with all the food/animal type items, unfortunately it kind of already is with all of the "treasure". If icons for food/animals are added, they would probably only want to show at the highest zoom level. And it might be a good idea to add separate icons for food and animals. Regarding clutter, the way I see it is that legend is there for a reason. I typically don't look at the map with everything turned on, so for me it never feels cluttered. Maybe keeping the sword/shield/bow at the highest zoom level would also help to declutter. I guess my main question is, if we go ahead and create new icons, is this something that can reasonably be implemented? I can help create icons, but beyond that all this wiki stuff is really new to me.--ShadowCat (talk) 19:34, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
There's two main issues. One is that the more icons we have, the more layers we have, the bigger the legend gets, and it's already pretty much at the maximum. The second is that we're trying to use in-game art for every icon. We're one of (if not) the only interactive maps to do such a thing. Breaking that standard is a major change and actually feels like a step backward. Other than those issues, adding another category, mapping that category to a pin, and adding pins, would be very easy. Thortok2000 (talk) 19:44, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
A second map showing these very precise details instead of the main features our current map shows could alleviate some of the clutter. After all, not everyone's interested in every single Rusty Halberd. Additionally, don't weapons and resources already have 2D images? If a sufficiently large portion of the community is willing to put in the time to comb Hyrule, I'd agree with letting them have at it. Barring that, we could simply discuss notable weapon spawns and one-time containers found within regions a la Korok seeds. --Greymaria (talk) 02:38, April 1, 2017 (UTC)
Hi! I'm new to this wiki, so forgive me if I'm not replying correctly. I freelance as a graphic artist, and as such, can design custom icons for you using the Zelda BoTW Sheikah Theme. They would look faithful to the game, as if they were unused textures. If you could provide me with a rough sketch, I could attempt to remake it, pixel-by-pixel, which is the only way I work. I find it produces much more desirable results. Anyway, if you'd like me to do some icons for you, I'm open to requests. (By the by, if I may suggest a feature of my own, I'm thinking maybe something like Google StreetView could be cool. I'm not a tech nerd, So I don't know if it's technologically feasible, but you could highlight points on the map, then players could provide in-game screenshots, which could then be knit together into a 360° image) Thanks! -Steets (talk) 04:26, April 2, 2017 (UTC)
@Thortok2000, I think what Steets is proposing is exactly what I had in mind. There's no reason any icons/pin types we add couldn't look stylewise authentic to the game. In fact, they would have to or I agree, it would be a step backward. @Greymaria, my opinion a second map would create the need to be going back and forth and that doesn't sound desirable. ShadowCat (talk) 04:42, April 2, 2017 (UTC)
As long as icons aren't ugly, that solves that problem. But still; we're pretty much at the maximum amount of layers we can have without going into submenus and adding additional complexity to the legend to enable/disable even more layers. Definitely don't want to have a 2nd map. And the google street view thing is very unnecessary. Another site is already trying to do that if you want to help them out: it's gimmicky at best. Just play the game yourself and go there and get much better than a 360° view, seriously. =P Thortok2000 (talk) 04:43, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
Hello All! I went ahead and, In my free time, made a test icon, as an example of the work I'd do. I tried to stick with the monochromatic color scheme for it, but I am open to criticism. This icon: http://imgur.com/a/0M6Xv is supposed to be for the Stationary Guardian.(By the way, the weird four corners thing was my cursor I left on screen.) I'm working on a Stalker version. Regards - Steets (talk) 17:40, April 2, 2017 (UTC)
If we use this icon at all, it should only be used for ones that are active and will shoot at you. But as far as I know those aren't even in the compendium, so I'm iffy about mapping them in the first place. =/ Also, the Sheikah blue diamond should absolutely only be for teleportable locations, not for enemies. Thortok2000 (talk) 04:41, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
The Decayed Guardian has its own entry in the Hyrule Compendium. Just to bring you up to speed on that one. --Greymaria (talk) 05:25, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
Steet, that looks like a great start! A question and a comment. Is that the right resolution, as far as matching the other icons used on the legend? May I suggest doing the guardian icons more in the style and coloring of the skull, bow and arrow, sword, etc. Thanks for creating something so fast! ShadowCat (talk) 20:50, April 2, 2017 (UTC)
Hi! I'm not sure of the resolution of the icons on the map, but I do all my work on a scalable 128*128 palette. 256 is a bit too excessive for map tiles. If you'd like, I CAN color it similar to the bow and arrow etc. One counterquestion: Would you like the eye red to make it stand out a bit on the map, or should I just leave it the standard yellow/tannish? Best - Steets (talk) 21:15, April 2, 2017 (UTC) EDIT: I made one with a red eye, so it can stand out. It can be found here>>> http://imgur.com/a/u918Z It's in my standard of 128*128, and is in the new yellow stamp palette.
Any way you can show one that's to scale? As in, the size it would be on the map? It looks like it might be too 8-bit style to match the in-game icons we're using, but won't know for sure until I can see it at actual size. Also, it seems opposite; all the icons in game are yellow with black borders and not black with yellow borders. Thortok2000 (talk) 04:41, April 3, 2017 (UTC)

Guys, I know we have a talk page, but it probably would be better to discuss this in the #wiki channel in discord! Thortok2000 (talk) 04:43, April 3, 2017 (UTC)

One thing before I move to the discord: There is no way for me to scale it, unless you allow me to edit the HTML of the origin mapfile. It looks 8bit because I'm using a pixel Sprite editor, but once it is scaled down to a similar resolution to that of the map icons, it looks the same as the others. I'll work on switching the color palettes again today. Expect a result in the discord. Best -Steets (talk) 15:00, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
Sorry if this should be obvious, can you please provide a link to where this wiki discord channel thing is? Would love to continue to be a part of the conversation. ShadowCat (talk) 16:31, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
You can go here. Once part of the server, enter the command ?wiki in one of the chats to get access. — ~David (Talk) 16:57, April 3, 2017 (UTC)
I don't really have the ability to do discord, but I would love to see the leaf stamp icon used to mark the location of rafts. Alshain (talk) 17:18, April 7, 2017 (UTC)

Hi all, I am new here but just love this map. I am starting a new Master Mode play through and noticed all the master mode chests and lynels, aside from a few chests in the Plateau, are missing. I added a few more earlier this morning and can continue as I play. I think two new pin types would be nice just for master mode treasures and lynels. Maybe the same icon, just a different color like red. This way you can easily tell the difference on the map and can hide them with the legend if you are playing normal mode. Just a thought. Mudrover (talk) 17:36, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

Hey there, great to see you are enjoying the map. We are currently working on a way to implement the master mode stuff, such as new chests, and add a new filter to the map to allow an easy toggle between both modes. It is still early days though, but it will get done eventually. In the meantime, keep doing what you're doing, your work is not going unnoticed. Thanks! - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 20:06, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

Lynels are not correct

I was viewing the map and a lot of the lynel types are messed up. Most silver lynels are actually white maned lynels, and some white maned lynels are marked as normal lynels. I made an account to try and fix this but I can't figure out how to edit lynel types. Thanks!  the preceding unsigned post by Makar-oni (contribs) at April 9 22:59 (UTC)

Hey, would you be able to let us know which Lynels are incorrect, and we can change them. Reply to me here or add me on discord (BlackRayquaza98#9741) with the location and what the type should be. Thanks! - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 22:26, April 9, 2017 (UTC)

I have not been able to see every lynel, but here are the ones I have visited in the past hour or so to confirm: the lynel at Lat: 0.7319 Lng: 0.6925 is a white maned lynel, the lynel at Lat: 0.7921 Lng: 0.9 is also a white maned lynel. Thanks!

"Most Lynels "rank up" based on your progression. The map shows the default types that you will encounter at each spot early on in the game, but these will gradually be replaced by more dangerous variants, and, ultimately, by fearsome Silver Lynels. Even in the late-game, though, you can find a standard Lynel atop Ploymus Mountains, and Blue-Maned and White-Maned specimens inside Hyrule Castle's Gatehouses." -- Quote from official guide
What this means: If you find a stronger Lynel than the map says, you have just progressed a lot, and the map is not wrong. If you find one weaker than the map says, then the person who reported it progressed more than you have, and you should update the map with the weaker version.

accessing map from different computers?

Is it possible to access my completion map on different computers? I've been editing from a desktop but want to see all my edits from my laptop also (completions). basically i got a bunch of korok seeds and am cleaning the map up but dont want to have to do it all over on another computer.

What you have to do is to copy the files with the cookies of the browser to the other pc. In Google Chrome the location is : C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage and copy these files to the other pc:


PD: In order to view the folder AppData you have to enable "show hidden folders".

Missing Goddess Statue

I was just exploring the map a little bit, traveling through the Goddess Statues section, and I noticed a statue missing. The Goddess Statue that is at the very end of the Forgotten Temple (which is actually the biggest one in the game) is missing. Not sure if you guys knew this already or not, just thought i'd let you know. The latitude/longitude for it is Latitude 1.2737 and Longitude 0.6679.

I second this and remove my re-post topic --Facade11663 (talk) 19:29, March 6, 2018 (UTC)

Unable to hide items on BOTW Interactive Map

I have managed to get to 874 Korok Seeds, when I counted the remaining I had left on th emap it was 25 not 26. I must have cleared one by mistake. I followed the instructions on clearing my cookies and all my completed Korok seeds returned. However, now when I try to clear them as completed, they remain on my map. Is there something I could check on my end? Another thing to clear?

Thanks, Lodeman

Make sure you click the 'hide/show hidden items' at the bottom of the legend. Thortok2000 (talk) 16:13, May 1, 2017 (UTC)
That was it!! Can't belive I missed that. Thanks!! Lodeman (talk) 18:16, May 1, 2017 (UTC)

How to change zoom level for Treasure?

I'd like to change the zoom level for treasure chests from 5 to [4,5]. But I don't know how to save this for my browser (if even possible). Any ideas?

Default zoom levels are currently hardcoded, however you can override and show any layer(s) at all zoom levels by selecting layers manually. If all layers are selected, it reverts to the default as far as which items show at which zoom levels. See Locke in the wiki channel on discord for more details. Thortok2000 (talk) 13:10, May 2, 2017 (UTC)

Lanayru Wetland editing

As I explained on a page of the adminstrator Josh, I had an accident yesterday with the map data. I wasn't logged in, nor did I have a contributing permission. By checking a Korok seed location in the Lanayru Wetlands section of the interactive map, I accidentaly removed the pin (and all information with it?). I don't know how to undo it, neither do I know how I could have made it disappear. It's the Korok in Telta Lake SW (SW in the Wetlands)with the offering bowl on the small island. A better position of the pin than it held then is: L 0,9726, L 0,9000. In the neighbourhood, the treasure chest E of the Rikoka Hills on the landside doesn't contain a royal broadsword, but a soldier's broadsword. Since I don't know yet how to put in back and in, I give you the information this way. And sorry for messing up the pin.  the preceding unsigned post by ‎Bilbo Baggins (contribs) at 20:39, June 2, 2017 (UTC) (UTC)

Don't worry, to my knowledge you didn't delete the pin from the map. If you check to see that you have the 'Hide Completed' function checked, you will notice that the pin won't be there, but if you un-check that option you will see the pin re-appears. Thanks for the information on the treasure chest, we will sort that out. - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 19:19, June 5, 2017 (UTC)

Correction on the Zora spear: in Dutch it is called 'zilveren speer' which is translated 'silver spear,' so the other way around than I put it before. I only mention this, because the treasure chest south of Wintre Island (0,9529 / 1,1500) is said to contain a silverscale spear. Getting the treasure chest lately, I found a: Zora spear ['silver spear']. I don't know if the level of the player has influnece on what you can find in the chests, because they both belong to Zora land, the one (silverscale) stronger than the other (Zora). Or it is a translation problem. That would explain the royal / soldier's broadsword matter, too. [Bilbo Baggins]

Don't know how many times I need to say this: treasure upgrades the longer you play. The base item will be the same, but a person who has a longer gametime will see a stronger version of the same kind of item. So if you get different than what's on the interactive map, and it's stronger, don't worry about it. If it's weaker, then update the map with the weaker version.Thortok2000 (talk) 18:21, July 28, 2017 (UTC)

Korok seed issues

Korok seed at lat: 1.3643 and lng: 0.8571 doesn't have a marker on the map.[Ryanz] Oct 30, 2017

I can confirm that this seed is marked on the map, you may have simply marked it as complete without meaning to. Un-check the 'show completed' button in the legend and see if it appears then. - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 18:02, October 31, 2017 (UTC)

Korok seed 509, on the left of Gerudo Summit, just links to a nonexistent page called "Statue of the Eigth Heroine". I don't know how to edit it, as every time I try it just takes me to create the statue page. I'm pretty sure it used to have a proper description, because I used the map to get it. Also, seed 125, southwest of Hyrule Field in the Regencia River should be further out into the river, but I again have no clue how to fix it. Sorry for the trouble! edit: seed #670, left of the Bottomless Swamp, is missing a description. The pictures for seeds 94 and 716, left of Whistling Hill, don't work. GamingGirlLoZRules (talk) 17:28, June 28, 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for letting us know, we will fix this issues as soon as possible. - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 21:32, June 29, 2017 (UTC)

There is a new Lynel (White Mane) on the Great Plateau in Master Mode at :

Lat: 0.8648 Lon: 0.7019

I tried adding it, but bosses are locked. With the release of DLC 1, you may want to consider unlocking them.

Thanks!  the preceding unsigned post by ‎‎Merung (contribs) at 20:13, July 2, 2017 (UTC) (UTC)

Korok seed (trail) on Lat 0,8094 Lon 0,9400, on Breman Peak: has no picture or further information. Maybe because the box going with the seed says Bremen Peak. The trail is already there. [Bilbo Baggins].

Thanks for letting us know. It will be resolved ASAP. - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 22:34, August 20, 2017 (UTC)

The description of seed 566 is incorrect as it appears in the box. However, a suggestion to replace it is already on the page of this Korok seed, but not in use yet. Glowing leaves should be replaced by fairy lights. The same for seed 163, also in Damel Forest, there is a better text, but not in the box. The box says there are 2 magnetic boulders, but all 3 are magnetic, 2 of them are connected with a chain. This sentence should be replaced by: The three boulders are magnetic, but two of them are chained together. [Bilbo baggins]

Eldin Tower missing from map

Hey, welcome to the site. The Eldin tower is marked on the map already, the issue seems to be on your end. It could be an unfortunate glitch, or you may have accidentally marked it as completed. Just check to see if you have done this by selecting the show completed option. - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 16:39, August 16, 2017 (UTC)

DLC Shrines

I was wondering if the shrines that you unlock in the DLC main quest The Champions' Ballad are counted as 'shrines'. If so please can I contribute to adding them to the map as I have some locations. Universalspirit (talk) 12:58, December 23, 2017 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for contributing. We have coordinates for the Shrines on the map page, but the map sources the shrine coordinates from a hard-coded json file, which I don't have access to. I have been in touch with the main coder; hopefully they will be added soon. Thanks. - BlackRayquaza98 (talk) 13:39, December 23, 2017 (UTC)

All "found" items gone after Chrome reinstall

Hi there

I had an issue with Google Chrome on Windows 10, so I had to reinstall it and after reinstalling, Zelda-Map doesnt "know" anymore which treasures and korok seeds I already have found and marked as "hidden".

I've read here that there shoudl be file

https_www.zeldadungeon.net_0.localstorage https_www.zeldadungeon.net_0.localstorage-journal

but I can't found it. There is no such file there in "older versions" (from last week) and there is no such file written anew, when I start to hide the icons on the map again now

I guess, the data is written elsewhere to, but I cant find it. Perhaps someone can tell me, I still hope to have an "older version" of the file with the specific data, so I can restore it


Where Do I Add a Pin for a Shrine?

I feel dumb for asking this but what section do I add a pin for a shrine? Kiah Toza isn't on the map and I wanted to add it.
