The Map/Compass HUD plugin displays a window on the map showing the map name, compass/direction and player coordinates, each of which can be toggled on or off.
|Release Date:||v1.0 26 February 2016|
|Last Update:||26 February 2016|
- Map Name – Displays the current map name.
- Compass Icon & Direction – Displays a compass icon and textual cardinal point for the direction the character is facing.
- Player Coordinates – Displays the XY co-ordinates of the player on the current map.
Each of these can be toggled on/off in the Plugin Manager options.
In the event Plugin Command, use HUD followed by:
show – Show the map/compass window on the map.
hide – Hide the map/compass window on the map.
Other settings in the Plugin Manager include setting the opacity and corner position of the Map/Compass HUD.
The Map/Compass HUD plugin uses a separate iconset, rather than modify the default system one.
In this case, it’s named "CompassIconSet", but you can create your own with the four compass points. If you do use your own, be sure to change the "Compass Icon Filename" parameter and place your file in the "img/system" folder.
Here’s the example iconset I’ve used:
