    Mini-map Orientation

    I’d like to give an update on our progress with the mini-map orientation.

    In A Realm Reborn it will be possible to change the directional orientation so that the mini-map is based on your character’s line of sight.

    Also, similar to 1.0 it will be possible to set the orientation so it is fixed, and the option can be toggled as you like.

    LOL cash shop! SE's way to tell their player how they appreciate them... pull the carrot and empty your pockets $$$
    And to those who support it: you are kicking yourselves. -- We just need to sit back and laugh at people with cash shop items.

    Interesting, good job(but i have a good sense of direction). This opens up more ideas:

    What will be the short-cut to opening the main map of the region(if not the area)? Can we click on the mini-map to interact with it?

    Can we also please look into a toggle of mini-map vs radar? I like seeing PC/NPC/mobs around me, but the map overlay can be quite distracting.

    How about multiple radars/mini-map styles?
    >>>not sure if it's been announced already:

    If any of you seen Predator(who hasn't) there's a function with their radar to switch detection through inferred, night-vision, sound or light,etc. Imaging toggling the mini-map/radar to see or detect what you want to see/detect. It wouldn't just be a compass but also a wood detector, metal detector or gil detector or mob detector, etc.


    "I pity the fool who needs a mini-map to only see where to go!"
