    This nifty little client side hack lets you turn on all of the Faction Names on http://map.massivecraft.com

    I have used this to trick to quickly find factions when time is of the essence. I am sure you will find good uses for it too. Unfortunately you have to do this every time you load the website since refreshing the website will revert to the original code. There is no permanent way that I know of to enable this for good.

    Directions for Chrome Browser
    *NOTE* If you use Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer (yuck!) you can do the same with their version of Inspect Tool

    • 1. Open http://map.massivecraft.com on a new tab.

    • 2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+I to open the Inspect Tool and click Sources. This will split the website into two sides. The left side is the map and the right side is the Inspect Tool.

    • 3. Open the drop down menu for CSS and click on the dynmap_style.css.

    • 4. Press CTRL+F then copy/paste this line into it mapMarker:hover and you will notice that it will instantly find the code and highlight it yellow for you.

    • 5. Click where is shows .mapMarker:hover then select :hover and delete it. You want it to look like this .mapMarker

    • 6. Close the Inspect Tool by pressing the X in the upper right corner.

    • 7. On the sidebar map list select any Faction Survival Map. You will instantly see all of the Faction names. You can switch between any Faction Survival Map as long as you do not close the website or press F5 which refreshes the code for the entire website back to normal.

    • 8. Have fun looking around DynMap with all the Faction Names turned on! If your a treasure hunter this will make you rich. If your a raider you can find any faction quickly by using CTRL+F and type the faction name.

    In Conclusion this is only a client side modification which means that the website is being altered only on your browser. You are removing the code that automatically hides the faction names by default. This is not making any changes on MassiveCraft or "hacking" them.

    Originally when I was in Staff, I presented Cay with this modification and he removed the line of code from the actual .css file itself. This was great for a while until DynMap had to be updated. The new updated files reversed the modifications and it was never edited again. DynMap is not created by MassiveCraft so when new updates come out the old files have to be removed and replaced by the new ones.

    Honestly it would be up to the Tech Staff to keep modifying the .css file every time so I don't know if it would be something they would like to do over and over. I do admit it was really nice to have.

    I don't think there is at the moment. If I find a way I'll let you know.

    This would be a great feature if it was added as a toggle button or permanent change on the map server. : )
