Votan's Improved Locations  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.21.1
by: votan [More]
Description
On one hand, the "Locations" tab of the world-map does what it needs to do and all locations fit on screen without scrollbar.
On the other hand, it looks very bare and squeezed. Pseudo locations like "Tamriel" and "Aurbis" are mixed together with locations of all alliances, just in alphabetic order.

This add-on improves the "Locations" tab of the world-map window.
  • It adds a Most-Recent-Used list (MRU) to the top. Your currently last visited locations are the top five. (Similar to "Faster Travel", because it is an obvious useful feature )
  • The locations are grouped by alliance and your character's alliance will be the first, then Cadwell Silver, Gold.
  • Since 1.2.0 you can enable showing zone level. <= Obsolete since "One Tamriel"
  • Since 1.3.0 you can enable showing "All Alliances" zones on top (below recent list).
  • Since 1.8.0 gamepad mode support.
  • Since 2.20.0 A re-written version of "Survey the World" from manavortex, with her permission.

^ You should definitely put that on the main description page!

Also, is there anything you can do to fix the Northern Elsweyr/Southern Elsweyr survey issue?
Today, I had a single Northern Elsweyr survey in my bag and both Elsweyrs had an asterisk by their name in the "Locations" map UI.
There was only 1 symbol to describe what kind of survey it is (due to your awesome implementation of "Show type of survey instead of generic scroll.") next to Northern Elsweyr, but why did Southern Elsweyr have an asterisk too if I didn't have any surveys to do there?
I imagine this will probably happen with treasure maps, too.
Is this something that can be fixed?
Ach f...
Another exception...
ok.

/edit: Can not reproduce. By the way: asterisk ?? Do you run the old from mana as well?
Yup! I still had the other Survey The World installed. Whoops. I've been using an old backup of my addons, because my last pc died unexpectedly. Sorry about that! Everything seems to be in working order now.
... Now I wonder what else is wrong with my addons ...

Yes, could be. I check that.

/edit: I checked: Great.... It works in German.... only.

Today's update has Alik'r working in the English client

The new icons are great too.

Thanks, Votan.

Btw I was wondering, my partner doesnt like having the recent locations section, is there a way to turn it off by edeting the lua file? Or maybe even a way to decrease the recent locations stored down to 1 rather then 5?

Awesome Thanks for that, Also, would it be possible to add new zone entries using there Zone ID code by adding new lines such as a code string like this for Murkmire?

-- [32] =
{
-- "Trübmoor",
alliance = ALLIANCE_DAGGERFALL_COVENANT,
zoneIndex = 405
}

Also is there any way to seperate Wrothgar from the cloning process so that it could theoretically added to say Daggerfall Covenant without adding Elsweyr etc ?
