Option to turn off minimap?

General Discussion
I want to have a minimapless mode because having a radar distracks too much from the whole "advanture in a dungeon" feel...

I can NEVER get lost with a radar...
d2 people used the overlay map constantly, you developed a dual vision... i just want that back.

If it helps you too much don't look at it for now...
Minimap is best thing in the world (of sanctuary). I remember my eyes bleed + constant alt-tabbing (alt always pressed) in D2 :)
Agreed. Minimap doesn't lend itself to this kind of game which is far more 'on the rails' than either Diablo 1 or 2. It shouldn't really be available past normal mode, and even then optional is better.
+1 on that idea!
Hate minimap and objectives as well. Please make possible to disable them.
And it's in the god damn way all the time.
+1 to this. Please make it as an option...
If i want dual vision i'll get drunk. Is there a way to turn off the mini map? It just gets in the way of my tunnel vision.

this is so so true ^^
If someone wanted it as an option then that is OK by me.

I use a combination of the mini-map and map overlay.
I find the mini-map useful.

Said that I am not in any way opposed to have the option to toggle it.

In fact the whole UI could do with some toggles rather than enforce one view to rule them all.
Indeed, it would be awesome if all the UI can be toggled on/off. We all know our skills by heart anyway, so displaying those on the bottom of the screen is useless. Maybe the healrth/resource bubbles should stay, just for good habit.
UI Scaling...to make things smaller.
UI Option of being Unlickable...How many times I end up right clicking on my follower or clicking on friends/clan...There is an option is SC2 making the group buttons unclickable.

Though I find the Minimap very helpful when moving through the maps as you can "see" dead ends before you run into them (though you might miss chests / goblins :/)
The option to turn it on/off/overlay would be quite nice.

Grift/Rift progression above the XP bar instead of having to open up the quests all the time.

Modable UI? ;p

Couldn't find any other thread to post this in, so here's a necro:

Would very much like an option to disable the minimap.
why would you want to get lost anyway?

I like the minimap. But I suppose it doesn't hurt if Blizzard added an option to turn it off to make people like you happy. I don't think it's a lot of work on their part either.

Edit:

The game would have benefited greatly from addon support like in wow. This and a lot more things (like the buffs problem) would have many solutions by the community.
...and I would like to be able to use my second monitor for stuff like that ...
I want to be able to place there:
- the map
- the chat
- the other player's portraits
- the whole focking skill bar (or what ever it is called) from the bottom of the screen
..and have a nice, clear screen for playing

:P
