I would like to see how to create custom map objects, code examples (HTML, CSS), and how to use these objects in the PRTG Map Designer. Can you provide sample codes for map objects?
This article applies to PRTG Network Monitor 13.2.3 or later
Custom Map Objects for PRTG Maps
The PRTG Maps feature enables you to create web pages with your own view on the monitoring data and publish your network status in a customizable layout. Because these dashboards are common HTML web pages technically, you can edit existing map objects, add new map objects to use in the Map Designer, and include external elements from other web pages.
The following articles show sample codes for custom map objects. You can use these objects in your own maps, customize them, or take the code samples as a starting point to create your own custom map objects:

Are these still relevant with 188.8.131.5241? If not, how do I customize my map items? I find some of the out of the box ones are lacking for my needs.
Yes, the guides still apply to the new webinterface. Only the design was changed not the way everything is created and works in the background.
