Basically, read the notes on implementation. It's basically a plug and play if you include one simple verb!

Enjoy! :D

- Allows support for all turfs, objects, and mobs to be captured and saved as an icon. (If you want datums to be mapped as well, just specify the var_priority as instructed in </1></1>

Very effective to create static maps. Using in our game.
