Votan's Mini Map  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1.7
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
- Try to enable tooltips
version 1.1.7:
- Fixed Show Siege settings.

version 1.1.6:
- Fixed Mounted Zoom factor settings.

version 1.1.5:

- Localization. Thanks to @lexo1000 for french translation.
- Zoom factors and show states are per character, now.

- Fixed missing map update for Cyrodiil specific pins.

version 1.1.1:
- Deleted unused files.

* Still no change to World Map code from ZOS. Gamepad support still not possible.

version 1.0.5:

The zoom calculation from ZOS code assumes width and height of the scrollable area to be the same. No. Sorry.

This time I can not confirm. Just tested. Works for me. hmm...

But you need an extra key-bind for switching in combat. Did you?

Ehm, you are right ... I check that.

/edit: yep. One overseen zoom still writing to account-wide, but taking (default) from character.
These are days, one should not code.

/edit 2: ok. 1.1.6 is out.

Re: awesome addon!

Nice that you added Per character (always a good option), but I like my settings global. Can we get a flag perhaps that lets us choose? I can always use Joviax to copy settings, but it's always better if it's built in.

Also, I notice with this update the zooms are all over the place. For instance, my default zoom is .7, the mounted zoom is .7, but every time I mount, the map zooms in a little and then dismount back to what it was.

I love this addon is a favorite. I have one wish tho and maybe I messed up and don't see the option for it but would be nice to have settings apply to per character. No big deal tho if this never happens. Where it gets me is in mount zoom. I need it zoomed way out for cyrodiil and exploration but zoomed way in for harvesting. I don't play one char for long hopping often between them. Getting tiring to change the mount setting again and again and again. But if it would remember setting per char instead of per acct would be nice.

Thank you so much for making this mod.

totally erased??? Position, too?
All you need to redo is switching visible or not visible.
Each character at logging have no minimap right positionned, border is changed, size is changed *sniff* and also my zoom settings.

And the savedvariables is changed too.

I wonder if there was a problem that created all that. Well for now 2 characters done. I will redo the others later. I keep to have to switch characters to remember what settings i did. Errr my memory is so bad.

Will try to use Joviez to see if that can be done that way.

I am not mad at you at all btw, i know you do your best each time. I was just so surprised.

I noticed this today in Cyrodiil.

edit: You know what, I can't replicate the issue. I think it may have been an accidental activation of the panning feature in the main map (where the 4 directional arrows replace the normal cursor) and somehow it stuck when I left the game map. So just ignore my above problem for now.
Thanks for the info.
That could be something sneaked in from trying to re-enable the tooltips.
I check that.
