Minimap v2.3 - Updated Oct 12th, multimode GUIPad
« on: August 30, 2010, 10:17:46 PM »

-New almost final version of the Minimap v2 (Multimode on flight map with radar, relative, navigation modes, etc.)

-Final Updates Version 2.3 on Oct the 12th, read and download at the end-

I have made some advances in my semi-released GameMapRadar MOD that many of you already know.

The main addition here is a frontal radar view, as the ones corresponding for all the Nachtjagers with antennas at the nose.

The mode change is with the right button and a contextual menu.

The zoom is controlled with the mouse scrollwheel. Sorry to the people who don't have it but it's a "de facto" standard nowadays (I know that obviously are special cases).

The images are self-explanatory:

Normal map mode:


Relative mode:


Navigation map mode:


Radial radar mode:


Frontal radar (Nachtjager) mode:


On-flight Information + Briefing (not fully implemented, seen as this in versions prior to 2.3):


Update in V2.3: Fully implemented On-flight Information + Briefing:



Installation: trivial, just extract the folder in the .rar to your MODS folder.

Enjoy and give me some feedback.

New Version 2.3 available

Download MiniMap V2.3 with selecteable modes, from here
(Remove old versions of the MOD if you already had one, because if not, the previous version will load before)

Download MiniMap V2.2 with selecteable modes, from here

Download MiniMap V2.1 with selecteable modes, from here

Download MiniMap V2 with selecteable modes, from here

New in V2.3

-Fully implemented brief, flight data and notepad background.
-Rotating beam in radial radar mode.

New in V2.2

-Mispell corrected in text.
-Added scale and grid text as corresponds.

New in V2.1:

-Refresh rate for radars set to twice a second, it makes a much more reasonable "slow response", giving more the feeling that you are not watching at something artificially calculated.
-Now the NoIcons difficulty setting affects the radar too. If a campaign has it set, you won't be able to see anything in the radar neither.
-Now Ships appear in Radar screen. Land units no, and it is because in primitive radars is absolutely impossible to distingish ground surface objects in land.
-Minor calculations change. Bug when pilot dead hanged the exit from the minimap has been corrected.

Regards,

                              Pablo

Known incompatibilities are with:

-Zuti MDS MOD. Zuti has released an adapted version of this MOD with his MDS 1.2. Update your MDS MOD to have this included.
-Ecran Wide, it works but generates some distortions.
-Frog's Formation MOD : we are working on making a standar version with Frog.

Amazing update of a great mod!!!

The frontal view is a great improvement!!

A must to simulate night interception where on the radial view we can find the enemy and on the frontal we can pursuit it!

Thanks for sharing!!

All the best!

i guess it was inevitable to chat to the fork-tailed dude at some point.... ;D
Satan, zooming is now done with the mouse-wheel. if you don't have a mouse-wheel, besides suggesting you go out and buy one immediately, i might add that Dante's inferno is behind the times if you guys don't already have rodents with wheels.... ;D 8)
for your 2nd issue, i have no answer atm.... :(

Wow. This is what I've been waiting for for years. Thank you so much for this mod. Now nightfighting feels really real. The frontal radar works beautifully.

Just one question - what is the maximum range of the frontal radar? It seems to be about 3000m - is that right?

Great job!
