Use makevtour for hotspots, but delete the thumbnails?

i want to use the makevtour droplet to set a lot of hotspots in a tour - that is the easiest way in my eyes.
But i don´t want the layout of the makevtour with this thumbnails, i dont want this navigation, i really only want the hotspots that i set by myself with the tour_editor
Which parts (i think of the vtourskin.xml) can i delete?
If i delete everything, the hotspots no longer work.

Just in your tour.xml set this:

That doesn´t work.
If i make thumbs=„false“,
-i still have the navigation bar of the makevtour. And it seems like i can´t delete the navigation bar by making anything else = false.
-and i get a arrow visibility updateERROR: no parent "skin_thumb_2" found INFO: arrow visibility update, "when i click on the "in panorama hotspots“. No idea why.

remove the whole 'skin_layer' <layer> element from the vtourskin.xml.

Or remove the whole vtourskin.xml and take only the hotspot related code from there.

Best regards,

Hi Klaus,

my problem is, that i can´t really seperate the skin layer from other code.

Delete everything after line 290 „skin layout“ to the end of the file (deleting all the actions as well): Hotspots not working anymore

Deleting everything from line 290 to 365 (= until gyro plugins“): The skin on the bottom is gone (that is what i wanted). But if i click on a hotspot and change scene, thumbnails appear without any layout on the top of the browser window. Very strange. /the menue on the left in the screenshot is the menue i build, but on the top you see the appearing thumbnails)

why delete anything ?

in vtourskin.xml replace
set(layer[skin_layer].visible, true);
set(layer[skin_layer].visible, false);

and if you dont want the thumbs anyway
you should set thumbs="true" to thumbs="false" in the skin_settings
