The Minimap Icon Manager component manages the minimap icons for units, buildings and resources.
When you’re creating a new map using the RTS Engine menu editor, this component is attached to an object called “MinimapManager”.
- Icon Prefab: A prefab that has the Minimap Icon component with a colorable material which will be used as the icon for units, buildings and resources in the minimap. In the demo scene this is simply a plane, however it can be more complex than this.
- Minimap Icon Height: The position of the minimap icon on the y-axis.
- Free Faction Icon Color: While faction buildings and units have their faction colors, free units and buildings will have this color in their minimap icons.
