- [Voiceover] A very useful feature…available in most RTS games is showing us…where units are located on the mini map.…So how do we get our mini map to do this?…We'll start by going into the Scripts folder,…then the Hud folder and adding a new script called MapBlip.…Now, I don't wanna edit MapBlip right away.…It's gonna have some reliances on Map.…So let's go make changes we'll need to Map first.…The first thing we need from Map is a place…to store a game object, a prefab for it to use…every time it creates a new blip on the mini map.…
To do that, I'm gonna say…public GameObject BlipPrefab.…We need to make sure that the MapBlips have access to this.…So we'll need to make a statically accessible map.…To do that, I'll create a publicly available…static instance of Map.…So that is public static…Map Current.…Last, underneath these fields,…we'll need to create a constructor, public Map,…and inside it, we'll set Current = this.…
Save this file.…Now, let's go over to MapBlip.…I'm gonna be working with the UnityEngine IU.…
