Using items with the minimap

Post by --Potatoes-- » Sun Jan 07, 2018 11:26 pm

Hello! I'm new to creating mods and using this forum in general, so sorry in advance if this is not the place to post questions.

I was wondering if there is anyway that items other than the artillery remote can be used via the minimap? For example i'm adding something that's similar to a grenade but with extremely long range. However this long range cannot be used as it is limited by the camera distance.

The on_put_item event should be usable. (Unless you actually mean the minimap, and not the zoom-to-world view of the "maximap", in that case shame over me for not yet having used any artillery.)

Alright thanks! And yeah I did mean the big minimap (when you press M) and not the small one in the corner :D. I will try it out later.
