To retrieve your current location coordinates, type
/loc and your current coordinates will be displayed in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
Display order Edit
The coordinates are displayed as (west-east, up-down, north-south) in the game.
Many people without experience in 3D graphics associate (x,y) as (west-east, north-south) and thus z as up-down. Using these names the display is (x,z,y). As of writing, this is the system used on this wiki.
To make sense of the order, one needs to know that the usual coordinates used in 3D graphics have (x,y) as (left-right, up-down) -- much like the view of someone looking straight ahead -- and z as the distance "into" this viewport. With this terminology, the display is the expected (x,y,z).
Coordinates are also displayed on the in-game map (default key: M) as (x,y). Altitude is not specified. As a result, some coordinates may only have two numbers, in which case the coordinates were likely taken from the map rather than using the
/loc command. These in-game map coordinates are sometimes a bit unaligned with the
/loc coordinates, so some searching may be required.
