Taosenai has just updated his Tao Folding Map mod, incorporating the additional work done by 1212PDMCDMPPM, and released a new version. This lightweight, highly useful mod allows you to open a folded paper map that you can use while moving on foot or in vehicles, rather than having to keep loading and unloading the default map screen. I find this especially useful while flying, or clearing enemy grids. Definitely a recommended addon.
From the author:
Tao Folding Map will allow you to toggle a usefully-large map anytime in game by pressing Shift-Map (default ‘m’). It will automatically close when you open the big map or open your gear. Of course it does not restrict your movement or anything.
It is unique in that it is not centered on your current position. Instead, it is ‘folded’ into areas. This lets you keep a continuous perspective on the battlefield. The page is changed automatically when you cross over the edge.
You can zoom in and out by pressing Shift-Ctrl-Zoom In/Out (default ‘Numpad +/-‘).
You can change to a night mode by pressing Shift-Ctrl-Nightvision (default ‘n’). Sorry, the map is not perfect — some colors are hardcoded it seems.
If you have a GPS or are playing on Regular or lower, your position will be shown. Map markers are shown.
I have just released version 2.3, incorporating all changes from the unreleased 2.2 version as well as the features added by 1212PDMCDMPPM (thanks very much to him for his work!)
