TrueExploration

Until now you've had some magical atlas with a map for every zone, dungeon and even the daedric planes. Not anymore! With this addon, you have to "draw" your own maps.
Each map will start as an empty piece of paper, but as you travel and explore tamriel, your character will draw everything he/she sees.

This Addon is usefull for exploration fans and completionists, who don't want the exact locations revealed as in Destinations.

This addon is compatible with AUI's minimap and Votan's minimap.

Chat commands (should be used while the world map is opened):
/tedebug 1 activates debug mode
/tedebug 0 deactivates debug mode
While in debug mode, you can "draw" the map with your mouse. left mouse button to discover an area, right button to "forget" it again.

/discover completely discovers the currently displayed map.
/undiscover removed the previously set discovered flag.
/clearmap completely clears the saved data for currently displayed map.

Additionally the view radius and the opaqueness of the undiscovered texture can be set in the addon's menu.
ESC -> Settings -> Addon Settings -> TrueExploration



If you enjoy slow and immersive gameplay, try SlowDialogs.

The addon has no way to figure out where your characters has been before you installed the addon. It can only uncover the positions you visited while the addon was active.

To uncover places you visited before installing the addon, you can use the chat commands while the map is opened.
Use /discover to fully uncover the currently viewed map, or use /tedebug 1 while the map is open and then you can draw your positions on the map. Hold the left mouse button to uncover and the right mouse button to hide parts of the map. If you use /tedebug 0, drawing on the map is disabled again.

Not Working as of 10/19/17

For some reason this isn't working at all for me right now, even with all other mods disabled. I tried using it on an old character in zones he hasn't visited yet, and see nothing in the settings that might explain it.

I'm finding that when I open and close my world map it makes everything on my minimap (Aui's minimap) undiscovered until I encounter a part of the map I haven't been to yet and then it updates and is fine.

Is it possible to make it do an update either when the map key is pressed or automatically when the map is closed so as to fix the problem?

Progess is saved in the SavedVariables folder next to the addons folder.
Usually located in:
My Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/SavedVariables
In that folder is a file called TrueExploration.lua, you can copy that from one computer to another to transfer the progress.

Any way to get this to play along with AUI's minimap? There is no fog of war on the minimap.

Compatibility with Voltan's MiniMap

Looks like there is a compatibility issue when running with Voltan's MiniMap.

When the two are running, True Exploration doesn't update either the minimap or the main map.

/tedebug 1 works.

If I disable Voltan's MiniMap, TE works.

If there's a fix or workaround, please let me know. Otherwise I'll keep my fingers crossed that a fix is made.

Love the addon, thank you for making it. As many have said, this functionality really should have been implemented in the game itself.

Hello, love the addon, but I'm having an issue.

Whenever I open up the map, everything is blank as if I've discovered nothing. It's only until I zoom out to see the region, THEN back into the region I'm in does it show where I've discovered.


OPEN MAP



ZOOM OUT



ZOOM BACK IN


I can make a video of this if you'd like. It's very inconvenient. Hopefully it's something easily fixed on my end. Thanks for the great addon!

I just installed this AddOn and I must say, I'm really liking it. However I have two requests;
  • Make it possible to "discover all".
  • Make it possible so that vantage points explore more of the map.

First point, because on my main character I have been everywhere, I don't want to travel everywhere again with it. But, future content I would like to explore using this AddOn. So I would like there to be a /discoverall or when I /discover on the Aurbis that I discover everything that is currently available. Perhaps then also a /undiscoverall option for those that made a mistake.

Second point, it's a bit more tricky, I understand, but I would really like to have the option to go to a vantage point, say a cliff for example, and discover more of the land that way. Like those early day explorers did, they didn't look behind every tree, they climbed to the highest point they could see and drew there maps from there.

If any of these can be done, I would greatly appreciate it!

Regardless, thanks for the AddOn! I'll keep using it for characters on which I haven't been everywhere.

Regards,
Jigen

Nice mod, original game MUST HAVE THIS FUNCTIONALITY. But there is one problem( Tamriel map is spoiled, it is not possible to chose region correctly. Fix it if u support this mod still.
