Changes to the radar are done in the SABOT.ent - but as Jim says - ya cant change its position, just range and colors.

If i was given carte blance to redesign the HUD i would make it modable so u can change where things are, the colours, transparency, recticle etc... But anyway - a non-issue since that stuff is hardcoded in the main exe file. all you can change on the HUD is the icons which you can find in the HUD directory in the art directory.

You can also set the chatlines to disappear in a seond insted of however long it takes for them to disappear.

In the file: entities/tankgod/sabot.ent
change these lines and it should move the MiniMap to the right side of the screen.

MMapX = 0.80
MMapY = 0.70

But as Rex said, for multiplayer it would have to be changed on the server.

If the chat lines get in the way of the raddar just have at button set to bring up the chats. You know the tab key. If you hit it, it will clear the chats so you can see the radar. I am always constantly hitting the show chat line button to clear the radar. I have 2 buttons set up for this. I use my right thumb to constantly clear the chats lines.
