(Cotaks) #1

Hello,

[22-09-2016] -> new version v2.0

  • World map overview added
  • variables easier to set (top of the script)
  • some properties have changed
  • corrected the mini map ratio compared with the output render
  • new video

This is a Mini and world map that shows location and orientation of objects as planes

Options:

  • show objects with a property.
  • switch camera/map modes
  • zoom in and out (in all modes)
  • set detection range and zoom distance (all modes)
  • easy to port it to your own .blend (append scene)

Description on how to create your own map is included.

Here is a video to show it in action (v2.0):

And the .blend (v2.0):

any way to stick the camera view in one place(showing the whole map) and make the player move inside it, without keeping it in the center?

#edit
new version
Added the worldmap view.

you can use this method, or change the scaling/position settings and it will do what you asked as a minimap.
