Just a quick question, can you take away the characters icon above the mini map in coop?
That's almost definitely a yes. I haven't played any MP yet so if you could link me to an image of what you're talking about that would be helpful. Also, the mod I posted is only going to impact the SP mode I believe, just so you know.
The only problem with all of this is that there's only one patch.dat, so you basically can only install 1 mod unless you're willing to open them up and pack them back together. Also be aware that I suspect PB checks for things like incorrect .DAT file sizes. Not sure if it actually enforces anything in co-op, but it's a risk.
Mission accomplished. Minimap removed entirely, left the health bar at like 20% opacity. Should have turned the text 50% grey (and will before I post the patch.dat/fat files) but here's a shot:
There are other options available here. For example I could leave some of the icons at any level of opacity even without the big terrain rendering. Or you could put the health bar's opacity back up. Or remove it entirely. The text, as I said, is a mystery to me for now aside from changing its color.
Here's the basic version. This includes the following changes:
-Everything is now gone from the minimap. No icons, no terrain rendering, nothing's left. The world map is unchanged.
-Health bar is about 40% opacity (it's more visible than the screenshot above). Same for the armor bar.
-The health packs remaining text is no longer white, instead a neutral grey. I couldn't figure out how to make it disappear entirely without introducing a blank font.
-The distance to waypoint text is unchanged. I couldn't find this in any .FEU file, and even if I did the best I could do is make it a different color.
I might make some other variations if anyone's interested. For example I could put some of the icons back, or make a version with no health/armor bars at all. More importantly feel free to use what I did in your own mod. The files to get rid of the terrain rendering are in _UNKNOWN/gfx, there are 12801 of them and they're 1kb each (9kb if you go get them from your own fc3_main.dat). You also want the transparent "unknown" and "underground" minimap textures in ui\singleplayer\textures\hud\minimap (this is also where you find the textures for the fill on the health/armor bars).
WOW Nice thank you its great!
If its possible i just need to add at this good mod:
-> delete flashing items
-> delete yellow point for objective mission
-> delete white detection meter
And it would the better mod for immersive gameplay without broke the game!
R.Sporkington, really thank you so much!!! The nominimap mod is great! So when can you release a no anything mod, (no health, armor bars, no white spotting indicator, etc), looking forward to your new mod, thank you!!! :-)
