In-game Google Map

You'll need to get a free Google API Key from here:
https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key

That key must be entered as the value of the attribute: game.google_map_key for this script to work.

You can change the values of the lng and lat variables in the JS script myMap() to change the targeted location.

NOTE:

I'm not sure if the key has an expiration date or not, but I did read that it can only be used so many times per day. (I advise you to peruse the site where you get the key, just to be sure you are aware of all the details.)


UPDATE:

Now you can enter the latitude and longitude attributes for each room (as strings), and the player.changedparent script will change your location on the map.
