Votan's Mini Map  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.2
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.
  • In order to move or resize the window, you need to go to the mouse-cursor mode. You can do this by pressing the key-bind for mouse-cursor mode, which is "." (dot) by default. Or you press "Enter" as if you want to start chatting.
    Once you have the mouse pointer you can drag the window with the title-bar and bottom-bar. Or resize it using the border. The mouse pointer will change. Like in Windows. (And I guess MAC, too )

* 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+.

Currently - if you HIDE the map, but have set "Enable map in combat - ON" - the map will appear in combat even though it is hidden outside the combat. These 2 options are not connected like it is now.

So ye, ss it possible to make the map just always ON or OFF, both in and outside the combat..?
Yes it is. So you want the "Show in HUD" to be a master switch, right?
I would like to be able to manually turn it on or off (just the keybind), without the automatic system (in combat, when mounted, etc.). There are times during combat when you need it on, or just need a quick peek while riding. So far I cannot find a set of settings that just leaves it alone. For some reason, the "when mounted" setting keeps re-enabling itself. Thanks for all the work you do on this and your other addons--making Master Angler without your fishing addons would have been a major pain.

Suppressing changes due to SetMapToPlayerLocation can be really dangerous. I think about that, but no promise.

P.s.: Positioning works for me now that I know how.
Ok. Thank You. I think, I play the game too long already. I never thought about that to be a problem. I will add this.

That must have been it. Strange thing is when I downloaded manually it was 1.2.2,
so it didn't occur to me. Cheers!

Minion Issues

The latest version (1.2.2) doesn't seem to want to install or update via Minion. It gets stuck on the Downloading part. Then when I check the main addons folder, I see the zip file for version 1.2.1 in the parent directory.

Yes, I think so. After looking into the source of "Joviex's Addon Settings Transfer (Updated)" I think the way it "detects" savedVars causes a false detection. I can avoid storing some values in the addon table. But other false detections will happen, if I am right.
