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.

Unfortunately no i can’t.

I have absolutely no clue at all on how i could convert a spot clicked on the plane(minimap) to real world coordinates.
