Votan's Mini Map  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2.4
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 )

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.
version 1.2.4:
- Fixed an issue with map change ping pong in some sub zones at the edges.

version 1.2.3:
- Adding a deadzone to sub-zone map swapping.
- Hopefully better "Show On Mounted" key-bind toggling.

version 1.1.4:
- Localization. Thanks to @lexo1000 for french translation.

- Back to render method of v1.1.0 with new LibAsync.
- Fixed missing map update for Cyrodiil specific pins.

version 1.1.1:
- Deleted unused files.

* Limitation: Positioning and resizing can be done in keyboard mode only.

- Fixed pins were keeping mouse-over-size.

VotansMiniMap v1.0.7:
- Update to LAM2 rev 23
- ESO 2.7 "Homestead" ready
- Thanks to @Chip, I can use new world map functions to move the map faster to player position

version 1.0.6:
- Better unsupport of gamepad mode: World map is not broken, if switching to gamepad mode.
* 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+.
- As map pins are larger now, they are made smaller on mini map.

version 1.0.5:
- Restore player pin level. (Hopefully)
- Hide map in gamepad mode.
- Scale unit pins, but not below configured minimum.

Not to worry, I opened my eyes and read the description

It seems that this was only an hickup. After I posted this it works well. Dunno what it was.

Just a little update for this: I have something which works 90% of the time. But, as expected, it causes a big mess up for some maps.

/edit: The back and forth should be reduced with 1.2.3.

Animated mouse zooming is not enabled. There are keybinds for temporary zooming in/out to a configured zoom-level. See Addon-Settings and Controls.

thank you for fast reply. Yes, I tried the key binds for set zoom, but was hoping for animated mouse zoom while on minimap. Maybe in a future update?!
