    That is great. When I first heard about maps being officially implemented I was thinking "It would be great if the map was physical item you carry around instead of just some screen. Too bad that's way out of Minecraft's league." I was so completely proved wrong. Physical maps are one of my favorite little details in a game. They add so much immersion if the items are something you hold in your virtual hands. I think Far Cry 2 does this, but I remember specifically it was my favorite part of Vietcong, a pretty old shooter.
    FarCry 2's map was great because you could use it while driving, which always led to horrible accidents

    I wonder if you would be able to write on the map, like

    I can see the SMP names now...
    "Dick mountain"
    "Valley of *crossed out part* penis"
    Eragon all the way

    So, does the map only update if you have it out?

    If so, put 9 maps in hotbar, set macro program to auto-scroll, walk around for an hour or so, sell 8 maps and keep one.
    make hella bank.

    I like the idea of reading fantasy fiction books which players have written.
    Animalus Monstrum: An Overworlde Beastiarie
    If small pictures could be put in the books as well, that would be awesome.

    Am I a nerd if I recognize this map is from Eragon.
    I choose this map over others on google cos of the names and it was exactly what I was looking for.
    I never did read the second book,I lost interest half way through and it became really hard to read a boring book.

    Just like Oblivion, a whole bookshelf of books that mean nothing! Well apart from the skill levelling ones.
    "History of Morrowind" and stuff that were whole books 10 pages long.

    "History of minecraftia"
    Page 1: "I made a new world and build a castle"
    Page 2, 3 and 4 is a manual on how to use a bow.

    The books in the Elder Scrolls games were there for a reason; to establish lore and make the world seem real and alive.

    Maps should be sort of hard to make imo. Like 9 paper makes a sheet then you need ink sac for mapping ink, and once crafted with the sheet it becomes a map. Well, its not that hard to make, but you still need to find squid and reeds.

    After this notch needs to add more food.
    Rice would be a cool addition.(although maybe a little much, pork burgers would be cool too)

    Yeah, more reliable food sources would be nice too. Sure pigs are around all the time and you can grow and fish, but there is still no underground sources, really.

    Make an infinite water generator, then use it to fill a 4x4 or so pool. Then fish.

    I realise this thread is mainly about the addition of maps in 1.6 - But I'm sad that Maps are the only new item in 1.6 - that means that pistons are not in 1.6.
    Notch posted:
    The only new feature that will appear is the mapping
    But I think that maps will be really useful - especially when you have a large world, with several 'outposts' or whatever.
