I am only an average hobby programmer but I create a game where I need a Minimap. I thought about doing a nifty-image where I put a gGraphic or BufferedImage in. The 3D positions and view directions of the players are saved as Vector3D Data.
My question now is:
How can I create an Image that very effective creates the positionMap of the Players or is there another easy way to do it easily and effective?

Hey check these links i think they can help you with your minimap.


Yeah saw this links already…
But I searched an easier way. Now i thought i will try it with BitMaps.
Anyway thx for your reply.
