You can mod it urself by changing the X-axis offset of the minimap (this offset will depend on ur screen resolution so you’ll have to find that out for urself)

STEPS:

Start a single player game so you can see the minimap in realtime
go to (or wherever AOE2DE is installed for u) C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\AoE2DE\widgetui
open mappanel.json with notepad
in the first 10 lines u’ll see “width”: SOME_NUMBER_HERE
Play around changing this number (which represents the x-axis offset)
Save the file after a change and the minimap ingame should adjust in realtime
Find a number u can live with
PROFIT
just by typing your title in google trollolol

Did changing the x and y values work on the fly or do I have to restart the game?

For everyone who is interested in:
Changing the values works on the fly. So u can start a single Player game, Change the values and see live in game without restarting something what is ghoing to happen.

For Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition Change the "xorigin" and "yorigin" values to your needs.

Happy modding :)

But Keep in mind: After an update or hotpatch is released all your modifications could be lost.

By entering wrong values or wrong formatted values the game will instantly crash without any warning or error message Poooound

Hi guys,

I really want to move my global queue buttons. I am struggling to find the option to do it. Memb has done it on his stream so its definitely possible. Does anyone know where to look for them? I already tried most of the obvious .json files and they did not work.

Thx! FutureMan

Finally found it: "TechnologyProgessPanel.json"

Make a backup before you change stuff. meinbert

The Control Groups are hidden in the menupanel.json

Are you sure? I can't find them there but I might be blind. I have my mini map centered (mod) and my control groups are overlapping the mini map as you can see in the spoiler.

Anyone knows how to position in that way that it starts where the mini map ends?
