I added a mini-map window to the game. It pulls the mini-map image based on an attribute of a map entry in the map configuration file. I thought about auto generating the mini-map from a camera positioned above the map but this would be expensive performance wise. Also some maps probably shouldn't have mini-maps for example a maze. Also I wouldn't want monsters, players and such to render on the mini-map at least not their models. Maybe a red dot or something.

Anyway currently it doesn't track your current position or the position of anything else. So it isn't all that useful but it does give you an overview of the map your on if the mini-map image exists and is in the configuration file.

This isn't really required for 0.4.0 but it is one of those fun extras I throw in because it was fun to develop.
