Spent the last few weeks doing a World map menu for my RoM mod. I've just finished it, and have made a simple version that you can look at. I've spent the better part of this year figuring out the best way to make a map.

If you want, you can use it, or I can make one specifically for your mod. Here are some screens:

Spoiler: Show

World Map:

World Map again:

And The Description Screen, with Travel Button :) : 119142137-3.jpg119142101-3.jpg

You can download the pk3 here, a readme is included on how to edit the files. You can effectively just change the .str files to change all the text in the menu.

EDIT: The Description Text is black in the menu.

You could change the description text color, it's almost impossible to read it in the first two screenshots.

I think you should blend between the map and the background better, make the map look like it's on a large sheet of paper or animal skin or something. Cool idea though.

I've tried several ways, but I can't change the description text color, maybe I should just make a new font?

@silverfang22 This map is just for public show off, I might show you a screen of the actual map, but it blends nicely, it looks like it's drawn on the parchment/leather.

I also just noticed I forgot to link my file... I'll just upload it again.

Try using the line "descColor".

It works, thanks. So now it's black description text, and now I have the download link for you. I added It to the top.

So can you teleport to certain areas of the level by clicking on their location on the map?

Currently, no. It's only between levels. So I want to go from Map A to Map B (say a forest to a town.), but your idea may be possible, maybe just make the menu run a teleport script? This version doesn't work ingame, It's only meant for the main menu, like a New Game map, or a map in the pause menu. I'm working on the scripts to make it run ingame, so you can walk into a "Transition Zone" and be able to bring up the map with the use key. I'll definately try to make a teleportable map thingy tho...

It should work if you make a series of teleport entities, each with a specific targetname, and have each menu button run a script that uses that teleporter.
