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 built-in world map, because it is the built-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)

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

@Shinni did a great job creating a plug-in for a Circular Votan's Mini Map.
And if you want to show group pins in different colors and/or icons, such as showing a different color for dead players, you may want to use Votan's Group Pins.

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 pins were keeping mouse-over-size.

VotansMiniMap v1.0.7:
- Update to LAM2 rev 23
- ESO 2.7 "Homestead" ready

* 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+.

What does that mean?

That means, that the code of the built-in world-map assumes the map to be quadratic. One could make it non-quadratic, but the player pin will drift out of the center. => No way, dot.

What didn't I realize? I don't understand what are you talking about. What other addon?

edit: One more thing. I'd like to be able to see the minimap when I have settings opened.
1. Just choose None for title font.
2. If you did not realized it, you don't need it. Probably because of another addon.
3. Doable, but assuming the map is at the right side of the screen. Or must be moved too the right side.

I'm not sure if I did this by clicking on the minimap... but I somehow have acquired this persistent "Map Ping" that follows my character (stuck near the top of the map) ever time I group up with my wife... and logging off and back in does not help.

Does anyone have any experience with a persistent "Map Ping" and/or tools/scripts for removing one?

I figured out latter that if I have the normal map open, and do a Ctrl-left-click, I can get a second Map Ping to spawn... but it only lives until the persistent map ping "ticks" (annoying every second sound). So I think I figured out how to make one... I just would love to get this persistent one to go away.

I've submitted an ESO ticket as it may be their bug, but thought Id try here as well in case someone had a trick to kill this annoyingly persistent ticking map ping.

Edit... I figured the behaviour was caused by a recent update to BanditUI... even though I have that UI's minimap disabled as I use Votan's Minimap

Thank you
Does this happen with Mini Map stand-alone? If you re-enable yours addons (in groups of three) can you track down which other addon cause it?

When you choose the option "Lock Position and Prevent Resize", this completely locks you out of using your mouse on the Chat box to right-click on names. In other words, when you turn this feature on, your mouse pointer cannot right-click on player's names talking in chat. Deactivating the feature allowed interaction with chat again. I would love to lock my minimap in place, but chat box interaction is way more important.
Even with the map in the bottom left area, I can't reproduce that. Are you using the latest version?
Oof, false alarm. I locked the mini-map again, rezoned, and waited for someone to speak in chat. It is working 100% perfectly now. False alarm. It must have been my client acting weird. Disregard my bug report

@p6kocka: Transparency of the whole map is less cool as it sounds. The background makes the map unreadable. Because you ever know if a pixel is on the map or from background.
Brightness? Hmm. maybe.

I check that.

/edit: Yes. Doable.
Thanks for looking into this Votan, very much appreciated.
Worked like a charm Votan, just had to access the add-on and hit apply without making any changes and now it's layered with the bounty on top. You are awesome.
