Votan's Minimap  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.4.2
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)

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 )

ToDo
- Try to enable tooltips: Update: Found a real, real hacky way. Gamepad mode is wonky. One has really have to think about going this way.

Of course it is possible. There are other combat addons like Scootworks Combat.
It would also be possible for someone to write an addon to hook this into the mini map. I may add this to one of the next versions.

Yes, its a Votan feature all his addons can be found together that way.
I have a couple others of his and they don't do that, so I guess that's why it stuck out to me. But I doubt I have all the ones he has made, so maybe some others do and I'm not aware.

And thanks, I'll check it out.

I disabled all other addons except mini-map and tried it on all 3 factions, and was unable to travel to any Harborage while mini-map was enabled. Not sure when this appeared as it has been some time since I tried to travel to a Harborage.
Fixed in v1.4.1.

okay... I did not do this for a long time. I
check that.
Just a little reminder in case : you can only recall to the Arborage of your allegiance. You see the others but you are never able to enter them or travel to them.
Just finished Gold Caldwell and that was also a good reminder for me.
Just to be clear, I tried to travel to the correct Harborage on 3 characters of different allegiances. When mini-map was disabled I was able to travel with no problems
) good then )

I have tried reducing pin size, but this makes pin size on World map too small for me.

Also the World map no longer always centres on player.

If these issues aren't caused by your add-on could you please suggest what could be doing this?

Thanks
Since this is after a HarvestMap update, it is probably caused by HarvestMap. I will have a look at it, once I'm back from work.
