I like to show the player in my game where he is and how the map of all visited rooms looks like.
Idea is to track players movements. If he enters a new section than he can looks at a MAP and can see all visited sections as little rectangles or something.
The number of shown sections should not be more then 10-15 sections around the players current position, because there are about 160 sections in that game. Player should only get a little orientation where he is. Somewhat like all sections „as far as you can see“.
Anyone done that or something similar before?
I‘ve thought of an array that would be displayed as a map, depending on which arrayelement is set („seen by player“).
I'm working on a combat system that needs a map. The way I think I'll do it is by making "squares" out of jpgs and line them up to make a proper grid out of them. That way, you can get things to line up fairly easily.
Just a thought.
Map should be available from everywhere in the game.
Sorry for stupid question: how could I return to last section after jumping to „map section“?
