This mod automatically hides the minimap whenever you select (mouse-over) a logistics chest. This gives you more space on the sidebar to see more items in the logistics network. As soon as you move the mouse away the minimap is displayed again (Video). By default this is only enabled for logistic chests, but in the config.lua file you can also enable it for trains, cargo wagons and roboports.

Additionally this mod adds new hotkeys to permanently enable/disable the view of other elements:
- CONTROL + M (Map) toggles the display of the minimap on the sidebar
- CONTROL + T (Technology) toggles the display of the research progress at the top left, useful if there is nothing else to research
- CONTROL + B (ToolBar) toggles the display of the toolbar on the bottom and the armor/ammo bar on the bottom right
- CONTROL + N (Notifications) toggles the display of alerts to the right of the toolbar (items missing for construction, entities being damaged, ...)
All these hotkeys can be enabled/disabled in the config.lua and can be changed in Options --> Controls --> Mods.

Mod support

This mod is programmed to work with any mod that adds new logistic chests, trains, cargo wagons and roboports. It was tested with Bob's, DyTech and 5dim.


The mod is generally multiplayer compatible and was tested on several maps using 2 players.


If you have problems, bugs or new ideas for the mod then post to the thread on the forums or send me a PM. You can also write here on the mod portal, but I won't check it that often.
I already have a few ideas for future releases but decided to release it right now as it's working stable for me in its current state.
