Minimap Creation Technique and Plugin

I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking by this, but it’s been a while since I made the tool so I’ll add a short little description of how it works:

  • This is a Studio tool designed to position the camera in such a way that it portrays a top-down orthographic view of your map, utilizing the C++ rendering in studio for quick preview results.
  • It’s designed for mid-size maps, but may not work so well on larger maps because Roblox culls distant objects
  • It will position your camera so that you can use the Emulator and Screenshot functions in Roblox Studio in order to capture the frame rendered by the orthographic camera
  • You can then input that image into your own scripted minimap system.
  • It does not include the scripts for the minimap itself, this is just a good way to get the actual image of the minimap.

It’s not designed for in-game use, so it’s neither client-side nor server-side. No part of this plugin runs in the game, it all runs in studio.

Hopefully this helps :slight_smile:

OH, I understand now. Thank you.

I can’t get back to the normal view where I can fly normally in 3D space !have only 2 D view now

Unfortunately, the default camera can’t point straight down,

Click on the top of the cube and it will position your cam above



ok it is going now 3d

when entering the place the camera is set to “Scriptable” ! You have to give your camera a name so that this does not happen
