loved reading this--makes me proud to work alongside you :)
also, really funny to learn that the map is purely an abstraction--now that i think about it, it would've been weird to have the minimap be a literal, scaled-down version of all the overworld's maps, but really neat that you had to use that tiny abstracted version to approximate locations anyway.
Haha yeah, it's just a presentational thing very loosely based on the game world. I think there was a good reason why no one else made the mod despite it being a highly desired feature -- there would be LOTS of tedious work involved to make it work accurately one way or the other. And there was.
Eventually I had to redraw the map to make it more accurate to the game world because I was really committed to making the mod very accurate.
i am LOVING this gif. how long did redrawing take you?
waaaaaay longer than I'd like to admit ☹️ all in the name of making my mod as best as it can be, haha
I love this! I'm a Data Science student at the Flatiron School in Houston and fellow SDV fangirl, just stumbled upon this post in my feed. Next playthrough I do (there will always be a next playthrough) I'll definitely be using your mod!
Oh man I would have loved this when i played.
Thanks for the insightful write-up @bouhm
- as a fledgling indie just learning the ropes of Unity + C#, you've given me more hope!!!
I love you! Your mod saved me a lot of time in my hours of gameplay!
"So I basically rewrote the whole thing, and damn it felt good."
I know that feeling... For me it was like cleaning out dirty floor and polishing it... XD
I do not know how to make mods because I always download prestigious apk mods at the web game apkmouse.com
Great great article! Really enjoyed reading it!
