[RELEASE] Isometric Minimap Creator

Thank you man! Very informative and you’ve guided me all the way there :+1:

It’s not an option for me I don’t see that anywhere unless .NET desktop development is the right one

It looks like you downloaded visual studio community, and not build tools.

Spent a bit of last night learning how to use this. I first created a normal minimap, then applied some random math to grass textures and got a different (but not sure if better) shader effect.

Great tutorial :clap:, but can’t you use localhost or 127.0.0.1 to access your computer?

This is great and all, but is this really the best way to do this?

I don’t want to install all this stuff on my computer.

Lets take a step back and thank Widgeon for what has been achieved here :clap:

Well if this much has been done just to get a Minimap then I’d say there’s no alternative

Roblox doesn’t support generating files, so it either has to be done through a program on your local PC or by a server in the cloud (which OP would have to pay for). Both Visual Studio and Python are safe to install, and you can uninstall them when done if you don’t like lingering waste on your computer.

Time to start learning what all that stuff means :joy:

This is going to be a very useful tool, thanks Widgeon!

Yeah, I guess it would be unfair if OP were paying for servers so I could use his plugin with ease… >:)

I have an older version of VS installed… So maybe it won’t be as bad as I think.

prettttty coooool

Having said that, you should probably keep VS code installed!

Bravo good job Widgeon we all knew you could make it AND YOU DID! :smiley: :clap:

Cheers Widgeon!

From Lua obviously. Log files are generated internally.

Probably worth mentioning that you can alternatively acquire many prebuilt packages (wheels) from various repositories, like here for Windows: https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#ujson. You can install those simply using pip install wheelfile.whl.

That way you no longer have to install a compiler (MSVC) to compile the C-extensions of some packages, like ujson.

I’m actually unable to find my IPv4 adress from ipconfig, the one that shows is the local IP address, the 10.0.0.[insert number here] address. Any solution?

Im about to release an app and plugin counterpart that will simplify the whole process. All you will need is Java installed and to run the program.

Only thing holding me back is I’m having a bit of trouble packaging it into a jar file.
