A downloadable Framework

Download NowName your own price

This framework contains a location system that updates in-game maps completely by itself! 

It also adds the ability to show a minimap in the corner of the screen during visual novel segments.

Features:

  • Flexible location system that allows you to define location names, coordinates, and which area/region they belong to
  • Fully automatic: Locations will be updated automatically whenever you use a new "scene" statement - no need to update variables yourself
  • Mix & match: Display a map in the game menu, in the corner of the screen, or both! 
  • Almost plug-and-play: Immediately works in demo projects, but needs some prep in existing ones
  • Comes with preference variables for more user friendliness

How to use:

  1. Unzip the map.zip file inside your game folder
  2. Follow the setup documentation in locations.rpy

I also wrote an in-depth tutorial here!

Hi! Thank you for the tutorial! You're a lifesaver!

Is it possible to make the minimap show a partial, zoomed in map instead of a shrunk version of the whole map?

You're welcome, I'm happy to hear that!

I had actually already implemented that a while ago, and simply forgot to upload it. The new version now contains that feature. Thank you for your request!
