Votan's Mini Map  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.0
by: votan [More]
Description
This addon reactivates the mini map from ZOS. Thus the mini map does not do less, but also not more than the build-in world map, because it is the build-in world map.

No artificial synchronization of (custom) pins between mini map and world map. All kind of pins are supported by design.
But also no border pins or rotation mode and such features. My mini map is intended to be lightweight and fast.
  • Includes world map performance tweaks, which can be disabled for performance comparison.
    The tweaks changing the pin rendering to utilize the CPU up to a framerate of 75 only. Seeing the pins rendered over time is not a sign of overload of this addon, but a compensation of others.
  • Conflicts with other mini maps can be expected. Therefore the mini map can be disabled to use the tweaks only.
  • I do not recommend to use the AUI mini map module at the same time as mine.
  • Gamepad support, but limited due to lines in ZOS source code, they call a "total hack" themself:
    Positioning and resizing in keyboard mode only.
  • The window is resizable via mouse. (this code is written by ZOS, not me)

If you think you need a full-featured mini map try the MiniMap by Fyrakin.

Providing a mini map can be an unthankful job. I guess Fyrakin could sing a song or two. Therefore I can't resist to say:
The addon works well for me. Otherwise I would not have released it. If you think you have performance problems due to this addon, help tracking down or stop using.
Frame freezes are most likely coming from an addon providing a lot of pins without taking care about creating even a simple pin takes some time multiplied by hundreds.
In this case the author of that addon can make it more mini map friendly, only.

Thanks to @scootworks, @Anceane and @Drakanwulf for testing

Remarks
There are key-bindings to toggle the mini map on/off. For technical reasons the toggle while at siege weapons needs its own key-binding. But you can re-use the same key.

If you feel dissatisfied with the second main menu entry for "Addons", take a look at Harven's AS to LAM adapter.

ToDo

- Fixed missing map update for Cyrodiil specific pins.

version 1.0.6:
- Better unsupport of gamepad mode: World map is not broken, if switching to gamepad mode.
* Still no change to World Map code from ZOS. Gamepad support still not possible.
- Reworked "Spread over time" calculations: Don't be too restrictive for framerates 60+.
- As map pins are larger now, they are made smaller on mini map.

version 1.0.5:
- Restore player pin level. (Hopefully)
- Hide map in gamepad mode.
- Scale unit pins, but not below configured minimum.

I check that.

/edit: Yes. Doable.

Try grabbing it by the border
And be sure to be in keyboard mode. Due to all the hackings, resizing/moving does not work in gamepad mode.

This is how the font is generated:
string.format("$(%s)|%s|soft-shadow-thick", self.account.titleFont, self.account.titleFontSize)

You need an alias name.

Transparency?

Hi, I use your minimap exclusively, but I was curious if there's a way to set the transparency of the map, or to darken it?

The reason I ask, is when I play at night, with the lights off, the minimap (down in the right hand, bottom corner) is pretty bright, compared to the rest of the screen when I'm in a Delve etc.

So I was wondering if there are R,G,B,A values that can be set for the map to darken it, or any values that could be set that would affect the transparency?

If there isn't, it's no big deal, and I was just curious if it was even possible to do.

1. Shinni did a great job: http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1...nsMiniMap.html
2. Technical preferences. Use http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info9...AMadapter.html

THanks. I can be affirmative. There were pins inside Rawl before.
