Mapping subnet locations
For more information on "layer coordinates", see layer .

Coordinates in the Subnet can refer to many different things, depending on how the term is used. However, the term is mostly used to describe locations that follow either an XYZ scheme (001, 245, 596, etc), Root scheme (552 + (0,1), 552 + (2,0), etc), Karma scheme (awy, jul, v12, etc), or Time scheme.

XYZ (aka lab portal) locations use a three-number system to map certain locations relative to each other on three axes.

Lab portals are known for their frequent appearances in Submachine 4: The Lab and in the Submachine Universe. From left to right, their numerical displays show the X, Y, and Z coordinates of a location in the Subnet.

Coordinates: ### (where ### is the XYZ coordinates)
Examples: 002, 596

If a location with an XYZ portal in the Submachine Universe leads to a karma portal location, this will be notified on the XYZ portal's page as such:

Coordinates: ### → &&& (where ### is the XYZ coordinates and &&& is the karma portal coordinates)
Examples: 128 → sbl, 966 → wiq.

A list of all known XYZ coordinates is given below.

Root (aka transporter, cipher) locations use a two-coordinate system that shows different areas accessed from a single three-digit coordinate. The transporter acts as a hub for installing various cipher plates that teleport the player to different sub-locations based on the combination of plates used.

The only confirmed existence of Root locations is in Submachine 5 where only two plates (known as plate 1 and 2) are used. Therefore such locations like (0,1), (2,1), and (1,0) can be obtained. On each individual location page the coordinates are given as such:

Coordinates: ### + (%,%) (where ### is the hub location and (%,%) is the combination of cipher plates used. 0 represents no plate, 1 represents plate #1, 2 represents plate #2, etc)
Examples: 552 + (0,0), 552 + (1,2)

Root coordinates have been confirmed for locations within 552; however other locations contain transporters as well. All hub locations like 552 will use notation similar to those of XYZ coordinates, substituting the "+" for "→" to make something like: 552 → (0,0), 552 → (1,2), etc.

A list of all known root transporter coordinates is given below.

Root coordinates (relative to 552)Edit

Coordinates Target location Game
552 + (0,0) Root base Sub5
552 + (0,1) Charger room Sub5
552 + (0,2) Symbol room Sub5
552 + (1,0) Citric acid room Sub5
552 + (2,0) Lighthouse dungeon (Sub2), Sub5
552 + (1,2) Metal box room Sub5
552 + (2,1) Ancient room (Sub0), Sub5

Karma (aka karma portal) locations are accessed by a karma portal and are typically given 3-letter "coordinates". However since these coordinate codes are not randomly made (they are labeled based on notable names/content in that location) the coordinates are not indicative of true relative spatial coordinates. However each page for karma portal locations pairs this 3-letter identification with the XYZ location from which the KP location was accessed (to provide information on location connections). The karma portal locations are labeled as such:

Coordinates: ### + &&& (where ### refers to the respective XYZ location and &&& refers to the karma location specifically)
Examples: 128 + sbl, 966 + wiq

A list of all known karma coordinates is given below.

Games marked with a * show either the location in a main game with different coordinates, or a location similar to one found in the main game.

Games with a () mark locations conjoined with locations from other games.

Where do karma portal coordinates come from?Edit

See the talk page for tips on how to find karma portal coordinates.

No methods for organizing locations by time have been hinted at in the Submachine games so far.
