Topic: Mini map

Hi!
I thought it might be an interesting idea to implement mini maps in OnlineMaps. Currently it is very difficult to see where on the map you are if you're zoomed in a lot, especially if you use a 3D map. Attached is an image of what I mean.

Re: Mini map

you can create minimap with second map camera. Tutorial: http://blog.theknightsofunity.com/imple … map-unity/ , +/- result img without texture attached.

Re: Mini map

But it would still be restricted to the area that you can already see right? I was thinking more along the lines that the player is on street-level while the minimap is on city-level.

Re: Mini map

hmm, yes. but in your case you can try create second map object (first clone) for minimap with "current zoom - ~5" and then show result top on the first map as minimap, but i don't know - its correct way or not.

Re: Mini map

Hello.

I'll give you an example of how to make a mini-map as you want.
But it will take some time.

Re: Mini map

Yess that's perfect! Is it possible to have the canvas to World Space though? I have it attached to the wrist but the view inside the map changes as the wrist is turned, instead of being static like when the canvas is on Screen Space.

Re: Mini map

Yes, I can use it in World Space.
I just checked, and it works well.

I'm having this problem, it looks like the canvas is some kind of portal into a new world? :')

Re: Mini map

Just make another camera that will not change the orientation, and specify it in Canvas settings.
Using «Camera / Culling Mask», you can set that will draw each camera.

Re: Mini map

Took some experimenting, but got it to work eventually smile Also required the distance plane to be set much higher otherwise the Minimap image planes overlap, so that could be handy for someone else trying this in the future as well.
Thank you for the help.
