Wad/mod for a minimap?

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't get as lost if I had one of these:



But I doubt it's possible apart from wads that have it built-in for their own maps.

Im sure its possible with DECORATE.

Did you know that an Alpha version of Doom had a minimap in its HUD?

Too bad it wouldn't work with doom 2 wads. Heck, would it even work with vanilla wads designed for 1.666?

Why not?

It is changing HUD elements. It should be compatible with almost every map out there. Like a small patch.

There are many HUD mods out there and all of them run fine in any map. The HUD and maps are seperate things.

Plus who said it had to be built in with the wad? The automap is a great example of this, as it is generated on the go with ray casting(right?). Same concept with a minimap.

The existence of minimaps has never "made me lazy" as a level designer, not sure what that's all about. There's absolutely no reason to change your design due to the existence of minimaps other than to perhaps hide some ugly linedefs, which is a very, very minor thing.

There's already the transparent overlay option so you can shoot stuff while having the map up. I don't see why having to hit tab and break game flow is somehow better than having a quick reference as part of the HUD.
