It says it generates textures automatically. Does this mean it would work with a voxel engine and deformable terrain during runtime?
You can call the generate texture method when ever you want for instance: you can have it to render your scene every 1 sec or something like that.

BTW, any tutorial to add a minimap in a game that is everything working on "2DLayer"???

Updated: And how could I change the axis of the render layer? Because I see the icons but the camera is rendering from TOP not from FRONT.


Thanks!

Hi, I still have to make some tutorials and update the documentation.

By everything working on "2D" layer you mean like render your UI + Minimap under the same layer and UICamera? then just disable the camera inside NJGMap and ofc make sure the whole prefab have the same 2D layer.

Axis change feature its already on the new version, I'm almost ready with some details then I will submit it to the asset store tonight. If you want it asap you can send me a PM with your invoice number then Ill send it directly to you when Im done.

The current version on the store is 1.2.0 the new version is already 1.4 here is the changelog: http://www.ninjutsugames.com/forum/forum/main-category/main-forum/18-latest-version-1-4-0

Hi,

Very good stuff, but each time I have to install your asset the links with NGUI are broken and I have errors that I can only repair by reinstalling NGUI.

Could you maybe, like HUD Text, do not propose by default the NGUI standard stuff but just the asset to install it if it is needed.

By the way, you are a real pretendent to KGFMapSystem and after having analized both I think you are the best one, I really hope you will keep update your software and keep doing good stuff like that.

If KGFMapSystem lowered his price to your app, it must mean that you are more than serious :-)

Good luck with your stuff,

PS : The Fog of War example does not have Fog of war.

PS 2 : Would be good to have options if we want to use the zoom, the lock or other stuff.

PS 3 : You posted a screenshot of a race that I found marvelous, could you add it as an example?

Thanks a lot for the kind words.. there are lot of new features coming :)

I will see how HUD Text is packaged then I will make it like that for the next update.

Regarding the FOW example I saw whats the problem, try disabling and enabling the fog of ward on the NJGMap settings that will work out. I will fix this on the next version.

"Would be good to have options if we want to use the zoom, the lock or other stuff." What kind of options do you mean? Enable or disable the zoom?

About the race game screenshot thats a client game where I utilized NJG Minimap + Unity Car, I cant include that as an example. Unless I made a simple example without using Unity Car, Ill what I can do.

Here is a screenshot of NJGMinimap working on Unity Free 3.5.7

Hi hjupter,

I mean the possibility to enable the icon of the zoom, the lock etc... But it must be already available because in your race example I do not see these icons.

I can not wait for the next update ;-)

I hope it will work for you, doing good stuff and good support like that deserves to be well paid.

Ah yes its totallly possible the system is very flexible you can choose what you want to use just like NGUI normally works, if you want only a big map without buttons just delete what you dont want and it wont break anything.

Hope you have grabbed your copy already haha.. Thanks again for the kind words again :)

I have tried to get this working in my project with no luck.  I don't want to give this software a bad review, but it's looking like unless someone uses the prefab or has a serious working knowledge of Unity, this is not an easy thing to setup.  I feel like the person who wrote this software can't communicate in English well enough and there is basically no real documentation on the product, so people who jump in have to go it alone.  Which is sad because I think the general idea of the software is good and the demo works well enough.

I'm posting here to see if there is anyone who can give me some help on how to get this software working.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The issue I have basically is that levels are loaded in at a later point in time, so there isn't a terrain to work with sometimes as areas are loaded and unloaded.  It seems like the system has to have some kind of terrain or it gives an error every time.  Is there anyone out there who knows what I can do in this situation.  I'm not an expert in Unity, so I'm still figuring things out like layers and what they mean and all that.

Thanks.

Hi, you could have tried sending me an email at hjupter@ninjapvp.com or post a question on the support forum http://www.ninjutsugames.com/forum/ .. Ill be always happy to help.

If want to render the map texture at later point you can always call the method NJGMap.instance.GenerateMap() whenever you want. Right now on that version is rendering the map at start on the next version that will be optional.

For next updates I will also add wizards so should be easier to setup instead of using a prefab.

I'll have to wait until you get that taken care of.  Just having a lot of trouble getting it to do anything in my project.  So let us know when you get it straightened out.

Hi.
I was just about to buy KGF Map System until I stumbled upon this one.
How long is the sale lasting? Also, how does this do on mobile?
Thanks.
