I would need a satellite view for my siftr. How do I change the map to that?

siftr does not have satellite view to my knowledge. However, depending on circumstances you may find the following workaround useful. Every time you create a siftr, an ARIS game of the same name is created. You can then use ARIS to open the siftr and within ARIS, there is a satellite view. You may need to check the game settings in the editor to see that the game is set to satellite view.

I'm curious, why is this view useful?

Arrgh, I'm so wrong.

In the bottom left of the map in siftr, there is a toggle to switch to satellite view.

Thank you,

I saw the tab in other siftr-games, but it did not appear in the one I made. The game would be set in a garden/ forest and the map view is totally blank for the selected place. I looked at the satellite view though and it is too "dense" - the tree tops are obscuring the view too much. So best thing would be an own map - but it would probably not work otherwise.

Maybe Aris could be a solution, I`ll try that...
