Maps installation guide for the Tibia macOS client

Support TibiaMaps.io by bidding on a character auction!

The character Wablieftru is being auctioned for 59 TC.

The macOS clients reads minimap files from ~/Library/Application Support/CipSoft GmbH/Tibia/packages/Tibia.app/Contents/Resources/minimap (where ~ is your user’s home directory, i.e. /Users/YourUserName). We’ve prepared a Bash script that automatically downloads our latest available maps and places them in the correct location. Check out the repository for more details.

If for some reason you prefer to do it manually, here’s how that works:

  1. Open the Tibia client.
  2. When you see the login screen, + click on the active Tibia icon in the macOS Dock. This opens a Finder window with Tibia.app selected.
  3. Right-click on Tibia.app, and choose “Show Package Contents”.
  4. Open Contents and then Resources. You should see the minimap directory now (among others).
  5. Close the Tibia client.
  6. Make a backup copy of your minimap folder. This can be done by simply renaming it to minimap-backup.
  7. Extract the ZIP file you downloaded. This results in a new minimap folder containing our fully explored maps.
  8. Open the Tibia client, log in, and check the in-game minimap to verify the installation succeeded.

Installing maps for the Test Server client

The Test Server client uses a separate directory for its configuration. Its minimap folder can be found at ~/Library/Application Support/CipSoft GmbH/Tibia/packages/TibiaExternal.app/Contents/Resources/minimap instead of ~/Library/Application Support/CipSoft GmbH/Tibia/packages/Tibia.app/Contents/Resources/minimap. One option is to follow the same manual installation steps as above for this directory.

However, there’s an easier option! We recommend sharing the minimap folder across the two clients by creating a symlink:

ln -s "${HOME}/Library/Application Support/CipSoft GmbH/Tibia/packages/Tibia.app/Contents/Resources/minimap" "${HOME}/Library/Application Support/CipSoft GmbH/Tibia/packages/TibiaExternal.app/Contents/Resources/minimap"

This makes the test client’s minimap folder point to your main client’s minimap folder. This not only saves disk space, but also means you only have to maintain your maps in a single place instead of copying folders all the time. With this trick, you can also use our Bash script to update the maps for both clients.
