Settings

Most of the settings on the HUD Navigation Element component are used to override the default settings defined by the HUD Navigation System component. This way, you can define different types of elements, which derive from the default settings, but behave different from each other.

If you plan to create a lot of elements of the same type (e.g. item pick-ups), it's a good practice to use HUD Navigation Element Settings to share your settings between multiple elements and change them at a single place.

General Settings

  • Settings Asset: (optional) Assign an Element Settings asset to configure this element based on the settings of the asset.

  • Radar / Compass Bar / Indicator / Minimap Prefab: Assign an UI Prefab for each feature you want to use on this element.

Radar Settings

  • Hide In Radar: If enabled, the element will be hidden within the radar.

  • Ignore Radius: If enabled, the element will always be visible within the radar, even if it's outside the defined radius. Useful for e.g. quest markers!

  • Rotate With GameObject: If enabled, the element will rotate within the radar, depending on it's GameObject's rotation.
