Bug Type: Gameplay, Functionality

Bug Description: After the v.177 Patch you can no longer change your mini-map to be simple display. Prior to the update you could choose between a simple display which only showed the platforms, ropes, NPC's and portals, or a more detailed display that showed the background of the map, but didn't show the exact location of platforms and ropes. Currently the mini-map will only display the detailed mode and there is no longer an option to change it in System Options.

Current System Options, with no Mini-map Option available: i.imgur.com/dZF4dXe.png

Steps to recreate: Open System Options, fail to find option for changing Mini-map style.

    It's rather unfair for players who've invested serious towards Oz but never managed to pass 48f or cleared the tower before this patch came into effect, I really hope they recover mini-map very soon.

    +1 please fix. Normal map mode is so ugly.

    The kishin nerf, portable storage/android shop restrictions and practice ticket restrictions have made tower of OZ almost impossible for some players.
    In fact, the only people who have been clearing oz have been doing so with the help of a frenzy totem (Scania), an item only accessible to an extremely limited number of players.
    As a wethered oz runner, the removal of simple minimap map on top of the previous chages has discouraged me and many others to continue running oz.

    Please consider re-implementing simple mode minimap!

    Aside from Tower of Oz, I prefer simple mini map mode over the normal map mode.
    Sometimes the normal map looks "too advanced" and cluttered that I choose the mini map over normal mode, since mini map only shows necessary stuff like platforms, ropes, etc. I would think mini map mode is preferred by players who just started to play this game.
    Again, there is so much going on in the normal map mode that beginner players find it complicated to use.

    I honestly don't know why they removed the simple mini map mode. At least players were able to CHOOSE between normal or simple mini map mode before this patch. I know you guys are all about "Better Maple", but removing the simple mini map mode isn't one of them.

    same, and besides - simple mini-map also had the option of increasing its size to 2x - kind of helpful in some situations (and personally i find the regular map rather small...
    Oh yea and oz too... used to run it back in june -> august, and first that thing with kanna (all my time getting my kanna through oz... wasted); now the simple map removal... really, just bring simple minimap back at least.
