I like very much your idea, but i feel a bit cheat... Can you do this to work as an satelite building, that after you construct, this building will show the stuff on the minimap, will be more realistic. (sorry my english)

I think this is not cheating. Because the mod shows only visible objects, which you can searching yourself. I don't like spend time searching for objects. And I made this mod.

Yes! I can definitely say that I'll be the first to commend and appreciate this mod for the ability to SEARCH THE DANG MAP! Especially for wild healroots (Playing on HCSK, with seedsplease.) 10/10!
Edit: Noticed that 'wildlife marked for hunt' can't change color...might be the first issue?

Is there a keyboard shortcut to disappear the map? I don't have a lot of screen real estate, even after making the map as small as possible. Love the mod!!!

Sure. This was realized in the original mod. I added the description of features of the original mod in the main message.
Code: [Select]
Features of the original mod:
Overlays for the following: Areas, Buildings, Colonists, Mining, Noncolonists, Power Grid, Ships, Terrain, and Wildlife
Forced overlays exist for viewpoint and fog.
F8 can show/hide the minimap
F9 can show/hide the minimap controls
Mouse wheel over minimap for zoom
Minimap will hide when in world tab
Minimap will hide when in Fluffy's Relationship Tab
Minimap will hide when in ResearchPal
Customizable colors for indicators and other overlays

Right, this is one of issues of the original mod. I'll try to fix this in the next version (v0.18.0.2).

About 1.0. I make this mod for HSK modpack primarily. And I am planning to update the mod for 1.0 only when there will be official release.

Oh my, you're making this exclusively for HSCK? Well, I think we'll get along nicely. I've been advertising this mod on their Discord. So far, me and another really liking it!

Hey MaxZiCode, just wondering. Have you given the original author (Why_Is_That) credits and requested to use his work to deriviate from it? Just wondering since it's generally a policy to give credit to those who started the mod, and I don't see any credit in the description to the original author's work, only a link included.

Before I started to create the mod, I readed the license of the original mod (on GitHub). The license have no points where written, that I must to give the original author a request to use his work. And I didn't do it.

I do believe so that it is common curtesy to still provide credit to the original author and not change third party credits. However, it does seem that this hasn’t been carried out to your best ability, even though it is their work that you are deriviating from.

This may also break the license this mod is under also by modifying third party credits.

If you use someone else's work in any capacity the expectation is that you will still honor them via credits..
