Minimap/WorldMap
Hello!

I have several questions about minimap and map of rhe whole world.

as i understand from the tutorials, we create a lot of small images (Image class) and so we can see the map.

so, first about minimap:
--how can i put these images inside Window class (as it can contain only GuiImage class)?

then about map of the world:
--it is taken (it's image) from rendered minimap of the world (from editor), but if i need to make some edit to map (for example, write the names of cities)? If i edit .GFX files, it will affect minimap too.

Yes you can modify the gfx files, but I recommend using D.text on top of the mini map view

RE: Minimap/WorldMap
Thanks for the reply Esenthel, but i meant world map in my second quesion. I mean big and beautiful map with names of areas, cities etc.
So i have 2 maps: minimap and world map. If i edit rendered minimap, both maps are affected by it.

RE: Minimap/WorldMap
you can just copy the original GFX files to some secondary folder
if you want to still be able to use the mini map class , then you can copy the
world folder to
"world-mini map only.world" (and delete edit/game folder but just keep the minimap folder inside with edited GFX files)

RE: Minimap/WorldMap
What is drawn on top of eachother depends on when it is called. For example:

D.text("ladidaa")
image.draw("/ladidaaa2img.jpg")

Assuming these are drawn on the same location, the text won't actually show, since image.draw is called AFTER the text was drawn. The same thing is happening to your minimap and inventory screen smile

RE: Minimap/WorldMap
i see, but inventory window is the same window as minimap (not the map itself but the border, you can see it). if i draw image of minimap after GUI, image will be also UNDER minimap window :( so the problem is not in the order of drawing, but in the parent window for image to draw.
