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.

underground pins missing (bank, vendor etc) in fence

UPDATE : i checked with another character, and visited this time two different fences : it seems it only affects Rawl'ka in Reaper's March.

So i am not sur when it happens as i did not do much stealing recently, but today going in to fence my stolen stuff, when i arrived in Rawl'ka Fence, there was no icons on the minimap.

Usually i see the banker, vendor, fence, and even books, but today there was nothing.

I checked the icons showing on the right panel of the world map, and a lot of the icons were missing

Inside the Fence




Outside the fence


Anyone having this problem ? or any idea why ?

Thank you

I don't know if this is the same using controller but if I get the cursor to appear on screen I can click/drag it just above the map area and set it elsewhere. If the map/add-on title isn't displayed (via settings) then it's still that same area where the title it would be that I use to click/drag. I can see the cursor on screen while in-game by pressing ALT or bringing up the chat window, again not sure if that's the same for you, but hopefully that'll help.

edit: oops, add-on author beat me to it while I was typing this!

You move the window by dragging the title- or bottom bar with the mouse pointer. But you have to switch to keyboard mode.
And yes, a good catch.

This is caused by HarvestMap and will be fixed today.
Ah great, thanks a lot!

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?
