Many things have changed since 'The Outbreak' and at the start of your game, little is known about the outside world. Only 1 section of the map will be revealed and your agents will need to discover the other parts of the map, a total of 80.
Before you can start discovering parts of the map, your town first needs to reach level 4 and unlock the 'Discover area' operation.
When your town has reached level 4 and the 'Discover area' operation becomes available, you will notice a new icon on the map page.
By clicking on this icon your agents will perform the 'Discover area' operations and discover a new section of the map. You can also perform this operation on the operations page.
When the map is slowly revealed, you will find the locations of all towns and government installations in your area. Each dot on the map represents a town or city, the bigger the dot, the more population live in it. The government installations are represented by special icons, more on this later.
When you hover your mouse over a map object, you will see a balloon tip with more information about that specific object. Depending on the object and your relations with that player, a list of options become available.
Each town is colored according to your relation status with that town:
Blue - Your own town.
Grey - Neutral or no relation status.
Red - At war with your town.
Brown - Non Aggressive Pact with your town (NAP).
Green - Alliance with your town.
Purple - Clan member of your clan.
Another major feature on the map page is convoys. As you may have noticed there are some icons which aren't explained yet. We will discuss this in the next chapter.
