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.

Yes I got confused because Minion silently updated to Shinni's LibGPS2 API version while I was investigating... When I said CONFUSION EVERYWHERE...

To fix Baertram's version, you need to change both GetCurrentMapMeasurements()
lines 318 and 336 in the TrueExploration.lua file
to GetCurrentMapMeasurement()

and LibGPS2 line 5 of the same file to LibGPS3

I just installed this addon to test it because it was asked a few times to add support for this addon in Minimap by Fyrakin, I didn't do it because the addon is unmaintained and thus didn't worth the effort...

I'm quite hesitating to start maintaining it because I don't use it but at the same time I have ideas (like hiding pins in the undiscovered parts for example) to improve it...

EDIT: Ok,my bad, the addon is still maintained by Shini so I will now try to integrate it with Minimap by Fyrakin

This addon locks my fps at 30 whenever map is visible

When I have votans minimap enabled I have always 30 FPS, except when I open some menu where map isnt open and its the same with M worldmap, when votans off, it locks to 30 when I open the worldmap

Any plans for account wide configuration ? I change the map detection radius and would like to have it configured only once.

Otherwise great addon especially when questing in the base game zones again.

Fantastic addon, it really makes dungeons feel different. You actually "explore" them, rather than just "following the GPS".

Sadly it seems pretty broken for me
Probably because of dependency issues. Half the time it forgets an already explored map, or shows an unexplored map as 100% explored.

Please test with only this addon enabled
Please describe the problem you got wth more detail and how I'm able to reproduce this with this addon enabled, in steps from login to the problem (e.g. login, port to zone A, open map, you see ..., move to wayshrine, port to other zone's wayshrine, open map, you see ..., port to other zone, open map, you still see map of zone A and not B etc.).

Please install LibDebugLogger and DebugLogViewer. Go to addon settings->DebugLogViewer->LibDebugLogger and enable "Stack trace".
Enable "debug" as the debug logging depth so I can see debug messges of the addons.
Reload the UI.

Open the DebugLogViewer UI (there should be the small UI at the bottom right and with the "gear" icon you can switch to the big viewer).
At the top left chaneg to "Only current UI reload" to only see the current last UI reload info filtered and not all since you have logegd in (session).

Scroll up and check if any red error messages are shown?
Any error message ingame that shows upon addon loading?
!!!Note date and time of the error messages please so you can tell me later on where to search in the file of LibDebugLogger!!!

Then try to get to the problem/error again.
Any other error message now shown or in the DebuglogViewer UI?

!!!Note date and time of the error messages please so you can tell me later on where to search in the file of LibDebugLogger!!!

If so please click the "Show more" checkbox at the bottom left of that error message and post the complete error message text here.
AND: Do a reloadui after the error so the file /live/SavedVariables/LibDebugLogger.lua is written to the disk properly.
Upload the LibDebugLogger.lua SavedVariables file here for me:
https://sir.insidi.at/or/logviewer/
After upload click on "Upload" button at the right, then on "Share link". Send me the link to the file so I can look at it myseld AND please add teh date and time the error messages happened so I can find them in the file.


If no errors are shown I'm unable to help here sorry.

Transfer explored map to new PC

Hi there. I got a new computer and I was wondering how I could transfer my settings and current map exploration progress from my old PC to the new one. I tried copying some files but it didnít seem to work.

Edit: I have discovered how to backup and transfer map exploration progress and settings both by per account and per character. I have also discovered how to MERGE settings between two separate files.

My case example: I had two computers and two accounts. I wanted to take my map exploration progress from Computer-2 and transfer it over to Computer-1. Problem is Computer-1 has my partnerís addon files already established. So I had to read the .lua files from Computer-2 in a program called Notepad++. I then *carefully* copy-pasted information over and spliced it into the pre-existing files on Computer-1. It works and is very cool.

If you mess up then when you log in, the game will notify you of an error. I highly recommend backing up your .lua files before modifying in case of errors so that you can revert changes and try again. Worked for me.

In case anyone picks this up for updates

It looks like at least for now this beautiful, amazing, awesome add on may be unmaintained.

But if anyone decides to tinker with it, I would love an option to have high vantage points (lighthouses, mountains) reveal more territory.

The original dev, YOU ARE A HERO!

Completely removes your Player Pin on the map.
Makes it impossible to hover over yourself and see your name on map.
Removes the flashing of your currently location if you have the "VOTAN'S MAP PIN COLORS" addon with option Show Player Pin : OFF
This mini addon is not found on the Minion Program or ESOUI.com, its made by Baertram as a request.
Hide Me

VOTAN'S MAP PIN COLORS
Link


Allows to hide your player pin and allows you to change the color of some built-in map pins to your preferences.

Thanks for this addon!

Could I request support for votan's circular map? It does still make square map inside when circular border is selected.
