I know i need a world map, possibly like this and it has an icon for the player that moves, im not sure if its on a hex map:http://www.micabytes.com/wiki/pirates/index.php/Main_Game_Interface

but im debating on either having the town also be mapped where youll be able to click on where to go ex: Steve Jackson's SORCERY! games.

or its just a layout map of squares connected with a thin line that use descriptions to "flesh out the squares. I cant paste a picture but it would be like going in PAINT on your computer, selecting the rectangle shape, then making two squares out of the rectangle shape, then filling those squares with a dark color(lets say a dark violet) then connect the two squares together with a Line shape with the same color. Then when a player moves into a square it will be indicated by the room turning into a lighter color(lighter violet) and when they leave that room (room 1)for another room(room 2), room 1 turns back to the darker violet color and room 2 goes to a lighter violet.. Each room will have a short blurb to say what it looks like like a cell or a bedroom, or a cave.

or i just make buttons that pretty much do what twine does and make passages for places the player can go to and leave from.

Any of those could work! It depends on what is best for your game. My advice is to try building a prototype of the one your instinct tells you is best. If you get stuck on any bits of code post them here and we will help.

I probably will have to use something else until it gets fixed.
