Your location is at -1125, -791 (Y is height). That is a start. I'll try to find it one the map for you and cut'n'paste a version in this post. One of the key things is whether you could see any neighbours as you wandered around, e.g. torches, construction work.

I think your claim is somewhere in the mountains up the top of the map. This will be confirmed when the map system gets updated. Your closest current neighbour appears to be Tribble. If you are worried about intruding about his area, have a talk to him in-game.

I don't think so, it's on this ugly lil island off a big mansion looking place we had to swim for a bit to get to it
are the maps real time so if I jumped in now I could see myself on the map?
I have more pics if needed

The map index is accessible through the server status sticky - World Maps and Server Status
Or directly at TOG Minecraft Server Maps

They are not real-time and normally up-dated weekly (but not at the moment). They are voluntarily hosted by Exe's Solutions First company, just like our servers and the Mumble channels. See those pages for how you can say thank to him for his charity to TOG.

Yes I refer to the forums/stickies quite a bit as this is all very new to me & Daz
Awesome job they are doing hosting.. we are hoping to help out a bit soon
I think I have found it now, sorry to be a pain ... you'll probably be sorry you let me in hahaha normally poor Rocket would be lumped with all these queries but he hasn't been about

I'm wondering if I have this right I went for a swim and Zeus is around the corner on that other big island..
Thanks heaps for all your help too


I went slightly bigger but I am not sure it's the small mountain I think it is, I'm a bit confused as it seems to be in a slightly different spot


I'm hoping it's that lil island mountain outcrop

That's fine. You are welcome to make bigger claims on Sanctuary. Many of us have.

I have moved all this to a separate thread. Don't forget that on Sanctuary you can use the Creative mode (/gamemode 1) if you want. This allows flying which makes travel a little easier. However you are welcome to only use Survival mode if you want the challenge, but don't want the monsters.

The Creative mode is not available on Frontier.

Also SHIFT-F3 allows you to have coordinates details on your screen without the graphs etc filling it up.
