So I've got a standard minimap in my strategy game prototype (it's an RTS, so a whole world-style minimap), but I haven't been able to figure out how to make it clickable, so you could click a spot on the minimap ahd have the camera jump to that point.

Has anyone else tackled this? Any hints or tips?

I found this thread as to how to achieve it in script:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Unity3D/comments/48ao2u/getting_world_position_from_clickable_minimap_tips/

—but I'm not much of a script guy and would love to be able to achieve this with Playmaker.  :)

Hi.
Video is up!

Sorry it took a bit longer as expected as i wanted to try a different approach, recording the video.

While recording i don't record the mouse movement but i animate that when editing the video along with some other effects.
Please let me know what you think of it, if its better normal recording or this.
And don't be afraid to be be honest :)

Here is the video :
