This is a project of mine that I initially released on the workshop back in August of last year, figured that since I’ve been working on it quite a bit recently (and y’know, other reasons) I might as well give it it’s own project thread, maybe get some suggestions and feedback as well.
It’s essentially a minimap that works by tracing the area around you rather than using a top-down view or trying to read the map’s data directly. It’s not the most accurate method, has quite a low resolution (32^3 units per ‘point’ at the highest) and can take quite a while to load depending on the resolution and size of the saved file.
There are some benefits though, for one you can effectively slice the map in half wherever you want, making the transition from exterior to interior areas seamless. You can use it as an exploration tool, making it so that the map only fills in areas you’ve been to before (Or you can use the built in automapper and let it explore for you) And you can also do this:
I’m currently working on streamlining the saving/loading system as can get quite slow on large maps/high resolutions but you can get the addon in it’s current state from either the workshop or github if you’d like to try the new version (or just have a look at how everything works)
