Tidloc's Minimap v.1.0.1
by Tidloc

Introduction
Ever wanted a Minimap to float at the corner of your screen or have the opportunity to scout through a map for something without having to run from A to B to C...? Here's a solution for you!

Features

  • shows a minimap at the screen
  • minimap discovers itself upon traveling over the map
  • adds a scene where you can interact with the minimap:
    • add custom marks
    • see notes only visible in this scene for marks on events
    • change maps (like on teleporting events) if that map has been discovered so far

How to Use
paste it of course above main, below all standart-scripts and my Header.
This script is pretty much plug and play, only needs the constants in the beginning of the script to be set up. (Either way, please read the instructions at the beginning of the script)
Also you might want to use my HTML-like-tagging script. See the demo for examples or the side of my header for details about this script.

Demo
Download this open zip-file.

Script
Download this file for the script.

Use the map notetag <hideminimap> to prevent the minimap from showing up on specific maps.

 

If you're new to using map notetags open the spoiler, otherwise just ignore this.

 

 

How to use a map notetag: Right click a map in your maps list and click Map Properties, then paste/type the notetag into the Note section.

I'm trying to figure out how to work this script. After reading the comments at the beginning of the script, I still don't understand.

 

I wanted to look at your demo to see how it works, but the demo itself seems to crash when I:

 

1. select the minimap option from the menu

2. press enter while looking at the screen that comes up

Hi, thanks for trying the script!

 

Just, somehow I don't get that error, neither when running the game from the .exe nor when started within the RPG maker... o_O Always the Custom Mark is set or removed, no errors or crashes here.
