Hello everyone.
I want to understand the principle of creating and working a minimap in 3D first-person games.

Do you mean, minimap in cs:s or minimap into your created game (unity, unreal engine, etc. etc.)

Only the Source engine!
Unity, Unigine, Unreal etc, I know how, it's all there.

Here is a video of my plugin with a Drone, I want to make a mini-map for it, but I don't know how to render players on it.

I don't know does this help you.
How to reconcile the coordinates and scale of the radar map with ingame coordinates
- They have made live radar in web site. So you get idea how vector works (player locations in world coordinates vs. radar coordinates)

...after all minimap is rendered client side. Server just send usermessages to players, updating radar.

Ok. Thank you! Very good information.

How do I update the radar on the client side? In what way?

There is a program (sorry, but I don't remember the name) that compiles your .bsp with all materials and other stuff that you want to be downloaded. They will be compiled into a new .bsp, therefore they will only need the .bsp in order to play with those textures & minimap. I'll reply here when I find the program again.
