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.  :)
