I find in games of this style, it's more fun and immersive to remove the minimap. Otherwise it's just a turn by turn GPS, and stops you fully taking in (and learning) the world you're in.

I can just not look at it of course, but it's a bit of an eye magnet!

Is anyone aware of a mod or setting that turns it off? I've done some digging in the configs, and found the settings below in tuner.txt. No luck with anything yet though.

I want this too along with disabling that annoying mission arrow.
