To open the map replacement press shift/alt/ctrl plus the "map" key action. By default most easy to do by right alt and M.
- Instantly visible and instantly closed
- No forced kneel down animation
- Remembers the zoom level and position from the last use
- Shows direction if compass is available (top center middle)
- Shows height if GPS is available (left center middle)
- Shows grid cords if GPS is available (right center middle)
- Available in vehicles at any position
- Only available if map item in the inventory
- Uses special .ext settings if defined (showGPS/showCompass/showMap)
The satellite texture has full coloring too and remains even when zoomed out.

Suggestions and ideas welcome.
