After seeing requests for radars quite frequently in the forums, I decided to post this up for everyone to enjoy and hopefully build on :)

Don't know if it's the most efficient way to do this or whatever, but it works and it seems to work pretty well!


Put this script on a GameObject. Select a texture for a 'blip'. Select a texture for the radar background (radarBG) Set the map center (on screen coordinates) Set the GameObject to use as your center object (usually the player) Make sure that all enemies are tagged with 'Enemy' Watch your radar goodness in your game ;)

I included the GUI Matrix scaling line just incase ... if you want it to auto-scale (which is a good thing to do!) un-comment it and change the values to your own game screen resolution.

Enjoy! Parrot.
