Top down map whilst driving the rover?
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Just wondering if it would be possible to include a popup, top down map of the area your rover is in?

So without having to go back to the control room, you would be able to open up a map and see where you are in relation to other missions, key places of interest and other rovers or landers.

Yeah, a minimap would be great. One of the most needed things for the game. Switching back to control center to see the maps is really annoying.

Being able to switch to a satellite view that you launch would be even cooler! I'm sure they already have this planned.

Already implemented a few days ago :)

Check the NAV tab, at the bottom you will see a button which says CONNECT. This connects you to an areostationary satellite, which is a satellite in a synchronous orbit with Mars above the said location. Using this satellite you can zoom in on your vehicle and anywhere in the map to great detail. Enjoy!
