Tao Folding Map will allow you to toggle a usefully-large map anytime in game by pressing Shift-M (or Shift-<your map key>). It will automatically close when you open the big map or open your gear. Of course it does not restrict your movement or anything.

I've wanted something like this for awhile now. Always wondered why BIS had this outdated "GPS only for vehicles" idea.

This is awesome Tao! I've always wanted this since OFP, instead of being completely blind when looking at the map. Much appreciated!

Glad everyone likes it. Literally like 50% of the dev time was put into making it scroll up and down nicely, 40% into making it scale to different maps, then 10% into the actual concept. I honestly don't understand why no one has made this, but I thought it was time.

Updated version 1.1 now available in the top post. Fixes an annoying little bug likely to crop up if you used in an aircraft.


1.1
----
- Resolve issue where if foldmap was open, then closed, then player passed over the edge of the map, then the foldmap was reopened, there would be extreme flickering until the map was manually recentered.

I love using this in our MSO setup. It makes working with "Indig" forces so much easier when you can see where all your team mates are since we split up to provide "assistance" to the other guys in those Indig force patrols.

Tao

I have had a few people I have turned on to this addon tell me that they have been kicked from servers for having this and using it. Also I was able to get it to work the other night in my single player and in the MSO server we are playing on but now I can't get it to work at all online. It still works in singleplayer mode.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Probably they are connecting to servers that require signed addons, or that restrict loaded addons to the server's addons for fairness. (This does provide, after all, an advantage to the user.) It also isn't signed (because I've never looked into doing that).

Basically it won't work on servers where the admin doesn't allow you to load your own addons. The SimHQ server lets you load whatever because we can just police any absurdity internally, plus our co-op gameplay style means that cheating is completely pointless.

There's no network-related code at all so whatever is preventing it from loading is a discussion between your client and the server.

I had not thought you that part. How hard is it to "sign" the addon or do you know?

I'm not sure, but I'll look into it. I think it's easy enough.
