[Prototype] Mini-map directional preview

[Prototype] Mini-map directional preview This feature dynamically displays a mini-map when the cursor is moved over a map change area.

By holding the "Tab" key when the mini-map pops up, you can interact with it.

This feature may potentially replace the mini-map display in the center UI medallion.

To assess the ergonomics of this feature, we'd like you to disable the mini-map in your center medallion (if you are using it) and see if you can easily navigate to different locations using this feature.

In order to try out this prototype, simply update your beta client and enable the experimental features using the new button added in the upper right corner of the client.

Please note that experimental features may be unstable, and may require you to restart your client from time to time.

After you've tested it, please help us out by giving us your feedback on this survey: Click here

I don't care for this so much. Having to hold down the tab key while re-sizing and scrolling the map was awkward. Plus, I use the existing mini map frequently to see how far I am from something, or locate a map coord from a chat without having to open the regular map.

If this is implemented, I hope that it is made optional.

I have to be honest, I dont like that very much. I hope that it is made optional too.
Thanks to the devs effort anyway.

Its a really nice feature. But its annoying having it activated the whole time.
It'd be nice if it would only appear, when I press the "Tab"-Key, while hovering the sides. An Option for the size of the Grid would also be nice. I'd like it be like 5x5 - 8x8

I already don't use the mini-map, and my craptop would probably crash if you guys add any more "visual improvements" (already does with the AP/MP bubbles bouncing) to the client xP

If this does get added in, make it optional or I probably won't be able to change maps anymore xD

First off, thank you all, your remarks and suggestions will greatly help us when we follow up on this project.
After some discussions within the team and consideration of your feedback, we won't keep this idea of a directional mini-map, but we'll keep digging in order to offer you other efficiency solutions that we'll present to you once they’re better conceptualized (we already have some ideas but we need to check their feasibility first).

Anyway, the team is quite happy with this first DOFUS Lab experiment, and we can't wait to do it again! So, thank you again, and see you soon for the next Lab experiment!

Does anyone know how to turn on the grid for the mini map?

The grid displays on the Map but not on the Mini Map. It did before the interface update.

Sometimes it shows up on the mini map, though I think that's a bug.
