This addon is a recoloring/retexturing by-hand of the Points of Interest (POI) icons shown on the maps.


I am able to focus quicker and easier on colors rather than shapes. The map can become very cluttered with many black-and-white shapes that make it difficult to find what you are looking for. I really think this add-on improves the look and feel of the maps and goes beyond just coloring. Please, give this addon a try and I don't think you'll be able to go back to the normal map.

This is a recoloring and retexturing of the game's texture so there is no performance impact and will continue to work as new areas are added or moved by ZOS. Only new textures will have to be addressed in the future (new craft types, etc). This does not paste new icons at specified coordinates on the map to replace or lay over the game's icons.

Thank you!
2.41 2020-08-24: Updated API for Stonethorn.

2.40 2020-05-08: Updated API for Greymoor.

2.39 2020-02-16:
1. Updated API for Harrowstorm.
2. Removed libstub from dependencies.

2.38 2019-09-14: API bump for Dragonhold.

2.37 2019-08-12: API bump for Scalebreaker.

2.36 2019-06-23: Tweaked the dragons a little more. Made the area under the chin transparent, brightened the teeth and horns a little, darkened in around eyes and mouth.

2.35 2019-06-22: Added dragon map markers including the dragon and dragon/damaged textures as well as the flashing combat and combat/damaged textures. I went with and arrow and sword in the neck to indicate damaged instead of the vanilla simple cracked lines.

2.34 2019-04-15: API bump for Elsweyr.

2.33 2019-03-02: Added some textures to the player housing icon. Instead of just plain red and white it has a bit of a tile texture, a wooden door texture, and off white color.

2.32 2019-03-02:
1. Added zone story quest icon.
2. Added option to use less color saturation icons. I reduced the color saturation of all 140+ icons by about 25%. This setting is found on the options menu. The game will need to be completely reloaded for the change to take effect.

2.20 2019-02-27:
1. Added the lorebook icon for the zone completion menu.

2.19 2019-02-27:
1. Added the skyshard icon for the zone completion menu. It was still using the delve (torch) icon I had been testing with.

2.18 2019-02-25:
1. Added the new zone completion icons that I already had available. I will still redo the three icons that I haven't done yet.

2.17 2019-02-20:
1. Made some of the functions local. I wasn't very careful with scope.
2. API bump for Wrathstone.

2.16 2018-10-25:
1. Made some small changes to the complete/incomplete dock (anchor) icon. Reduced the size of the "stock" so it wasn't as wide and large as the "flukes". Thank you, Google.
2. Darkened the eyes of the Undaunted enclave monster head icon to a darker red to contrast more with the mask.

2.15 2018-10-22: API bump for Murkmire.

2.14: 2018-10-20:
Redid the Undaunted enclave icon (the monster head).

2.12 & 2.13: 2018-09-24:
A couple tiny tweaks to dock anchors.

2.11: 2018-09-24:
1. Made the dock anchors a little smaller.
2. Changed the dock anchors texture.
3. Tweaked the ships slightly.
4. Darkened the unowned house icon to be the same as all other undiscovered/incomplete icons.

2.10: 2018-09-24: Anchors aweigh!
Added sailing ships! There are actually two types of locations that were using the anchor icon; points of interest (locations you discover like docks) and service points where you take a boat to another region/zone. I made sailing ships to replace the anchors used for the service points. Shipshape and Bristol fashion!

2.9: 2018-09-23:
Completely redid dock/anchor icon. The default one was pretty poorly made. Hopefully this new one isn't too dark. I was going for cast iron so it's purposely dark but, please, let me know if this affects visibility.

2.8: 2018-09-23:
1. Redid the battlefield icon (crossed swords). Steel blades, gold cross bar and pommel, and leather grip textures.
2. Redid cemetery icons (coffins). Wood textures.
3. Redid mine icons (crossed pick axe and axe). Steel heads and wooden handle textures.
4. There were a handful of 32x32 icons. I've made these 64x64 since the game if/when these are used displays them as 64x64 anyway.
5. Corrected the mine icons. I accidentally named the 32x32 version as the 64x64 version so the game was loading the 32x32 and blowing it up so it looked especially bad.

2.7: 2018-09-22: Playing for Keeps!
1. Added rock wall textures to towers/keeps for normal and group versions.
2. Added rock wall textures to tower/keep ruins for normal and group versions.
3. API bump for Murkmire.
4. Tiny imperceptible tweaks to wayshrines.
Please, let me know if I broke something or made it worse! ;)

2.6: 2018-09-15
1. Improved the ayleid ruins icons. I was going for ivy/moss covered ruins.
2. Made some minor tweaks to the wayshrine icons. I shifted some of the runes slightly to curve a little with the shape of icon.
3. Removed an errant pixel on the dolmen/geyser icons. There was a blue pixel outside the outline.

2.5: 2018-09-15
Improved the dwemer ruins, respec shrines, and vendor scales with brass/gold textures. I left the dwemer ruins a little bit darker and brightened up the shrines and scales to look more golden. Added color to the ropes on the scales and transparency between the ropes.

2.4: 2018-09-03
Changed the stable horse icon to more of a chestnut instead of a palomino to help with visibility. Gave the eye a tiny (almost invisible) amount of color. Darkened the edge between the mane and the coat.

2.3: 2018-09-03
1. Some tweaks to the inn icon. Centered the bands better, darkened lines, increased the band size at the base, made inside of handles transparent.
2. Improved/redid the bank icon.
As always, please let me know if there are problems or if something else needs help sooner than others. I keep coming up with ideas, doing them, then being unhappy with what it looks like in game. I'm my own worst critic. ;)

2.2: 2018-08-25
Some small tweaks to the inn icon. Darkened the lines a bit around the wooden tankard body and brightened the foam a bit.

2.1: 2018-08-25
A small update with a makeover for the inn service pin using ideas from fgoron2000. Thank you!
I was going for a 'right proper' wooden tankard. I used a cherry wood texture for the body then toned it down to a brown. The bands, base, and handle were silver but I toned it to a pewter. The beer foam I sampled from, well, beer foam.

2.0: 2018-08-22
1. Added in the beginnings of an options menu. This is intended to be a starting point for adding additional features. Use '/poc' as a shortcut to get to it.
2. Enable/disable the glow background on wayshrines and dungeons. Default: off.
3. View/browse through all of the current icons. I was intending this to be where individual PoC icons could be disabled if people preferred the default icons. That functionality hasn't been added but, for critiquing or curiosity, you can view all of the icons.
4. I set the tooltip for the images to be the filenames so when/if you see things that need work then you can refer to it by name.
There are a lot of icons I still want to improve. Thank you for using PoC!

1.9: 2018-08-16
1. Removed the glow effect around a number of icons; delves, dungeons, group delves, group instances, houses, public dungeons, trials, wayshrines, etc. This was barely noticeable but, in my opinion, made the PoC icons seem more smudged around the edges. I think they look a lot sharper now.
2. Sharpened up the runes on wayshrines so they appear more like runes and not just some weird texture.
As always, feedback and ideas are welcome.

1.8: 2018-08-14
1. Painted fence/outlaw's refuge service icon to uniform gray steel color.
2. Painted Thieve's Guild icon to steel color on blood (red) background.
3. Painted trasmutation icon. I sampled the in-game colors for stamina, health, and magicka.
4. Painted happy little trees. The grove icons, hopefully, look better.
5. Painted the enchanting icon. I sampled from a screenshot of a soul gem in the game.
I'll post some examples in the Comments.

1.7: 2018-08-13
1. Painted wayshrines. I went with a darker stone color. The light blue on the edges are light blue runes. The center has a wayshrine fire. I took a screenshot of the fire, cut it out, shrunk it down, and put it on. The runes, though they are completely imperceptible, are Dwemeri and spell W-A-Y-S down the left side then H-R-I-N-E down the right hand side. I was going to use Ayleid but I couldn't find a rune for W. I tried white marble textures and gold domes but, if just the dome was gold it looked like a sunny-side-up egg. If I did the dome and the top of the wayshrine then it looked like a sombrero. If you see some strange person staring at walls and wayshrines it might be me.
2. Painted dolmens. I stood under an open dolmen, took a bunch of screenshots, cut it out, shrunk it, then worked it into the game icon.
3. Painted the Areas of Interest icon. Blue iris with eye-white. Thank you, fgoron2000.
4. Yes, i'm crazy.

1.6: 2018-08-12
1. All incomplete/undiscovered icons have been toned down to a standard gray color.
2. Using a basic palette of colors for material types to keep the colors from being overwhelming; blood, bone, brass, fighter's guild red, fire, fire secondary, gold, horse coat, horse mane, house side, incomplete/undiscovered, light wood, mage's guild blue, plus icon, red roof, sky blue (gems), stone/steel, stucco, water, wood.
3. Dwemer ruins now colored as brass.
4. Stone structures (caves, towers, crypts, gates) now have a standard gray color.
5. Steel items (swords, sewer grates, tools, etc) now have a standard gray color. This is the same as stone.
6. Colored some service POIs.
7. I kept the trophy vault icons in Imperial City a single color but unique from each other for visibility.

Some remaining structures I don't know what to do with are wayshrines, points of interest (the eye icon), dolmens, and ayleid ruins. For now these are just a unique color for visibility.

Some service pins still need attention.

1.5: 2018-08-12
Colored more POIs.

1.4: 2018-08-11
Colored more POIs.

1.3: 2018-08-11
Added more multicolor POIs; delves, raid dungeons, crafting locations, blacksmiths, etc. This is still an ongoing process.

1.2: 2018-08-11
1. Colored the housing icon. This was the first texture that I used multiple colors on. It looks good, imo.
2. Fixed the mine texture. ZOS uses a misspelled texture (compete instead of complete) so I needed to use the misspelled name.
3. Updated the mine texture to use multiple colors.

1.1: 2018-08-10 Colored the service Points of Interest. I still need to color player housing.

1.0: 2018-08-09 Initial release.

Antiquities Icon

if anyone wants a coloured antiquities icon, just open PointsOfColorl.lau and add this under local service textures below the entry for woodworking.

{"servicepin_antiquities.dds", 64},

EDIT: Now not needed as Heynrich1976 has given us a more complete fix

You're doing God's work right now by letting these authors know what they need to do to make their addons work. Just wanna say I appreciate it, hopefully they get fixed soon.

Exclamation Remove LibStub (same as DarkUI and CQM)



Now this addon only got 1 Lua error instead of 2 like the other addons. I already commented about this new issue on the other addons pages, but decided to post the addon specific errors on their respective pages.

Also, if I may make a suggestion for this addon. I love the idea of the vintage MMO quest markers (Like in WoW) but was thinking of a kind of combination of new and old. Keep the Skyrim quest marker shape, but put the ! and ? over top of the marker. And make the ! on top of new quests you have yet to start, and ? on top of quests directions/turning in.

updates in colors

Think we could get a color update for the houses that we own.

Also have a color added to the Antiquities icon please...

Thanks. Kept up the good work.

Compass Icon for Dragons

Hi, i love your superb mod.
But is it possible to get the colored dragon icon for the compass as well?


Greetings

Hi, I simply can't play any more without this addon, it brings the game map to life. Although I've played ESO for several years now, I'm just starting to play the zone/guild content for Gold Coast/Dark Brotherhood, and I had a thought for a pointer tweak. I wonder if you might consider a little trickle of blood to run down the back of the hand for the DB incomplete icon. I'm sure you already know it, but for your convenience, the file name is poi_darkbrotherhood_incomplete.dds. If you'd prefer not to, in order to keep all of the incomplete icons in B&W, that's cool too. I remember that we can tweak them ourselves for our personal use, but it's been a while since I've done that, and I can't recall what app I used to do it.

Thanks again for a great addon.

edit

actually I found paint.net, and will try this on for size.

edit 2

Well, paint.net worked just fine, and when I go into the game, I can see my edited icon in PoC's settings addon menu under the Incomplete section. But in the actual game world when I come upon my target with the Black Hand pointer above it, it shows the regular B&W icon. I wonder if I'm trying to do something that can't be done?

Lines 1102-1103-1104
local function SetHouseIcons()
local unownedHouse = "NoThankYou/Art/poi_town_incomplete.dds"
local ownedHouse = "NoThankYou/Art/poi_town_complete.dds"

line 1166-1167
local unownedHouse = "NoThankYou/Art/poi_town_incomplete.dds"
local ownedHouse = "NoThankYou/Art/poi_town_complete.dds"


All this out of game. Once i logged in, i had to revisit each house i own and now my house are correct again.
Thanks for sharing this.
