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
