Votan's Improved Locations  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.21.7
by: votan [More]
DependenciesDescription
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.

Alliances are indicated by the icons: Scrolls, moon and sun. The scrolls indicate your character's main alliance, the crescent moon indicates Cadwell's Silver alliance, and the sun indicates Cadwell's Gold alliance. (Which is why Coldharbour is a scroll - since you only do that for the main alliance.)
The book with a down arrow indicates DLC/Chapters. The tower is for PvP zones.
The numbers indicate story order/DLC release order.

The X is provided by LostTreasure.

is there a way to only use the survey/treasure addon and keep ALL maps sorted in alphabetical order (instead of only sorting the maps in each alliance category)

Refreshed link, please try one more time.
Posting changes as text here will be difficult, because they are spread between files and methods.
Jo. Did work. Thanks.

Would like to suggest an update that adds grouping for gamepad locations menu, similar to keyboard.

I know it has been a few months since this was asked, but I was wondering myself and think I finally figured it out.

Alliances are indicated by the icons: Scrolls, moon, and sun. The scrolls indicate your character's main alliance, the crescent moon indicates Cadwell's Silver alliance, and the sun indicates Cadwell's gold alliance. (Which is why Coldharbour is a scroll - since you only do that for the main alliance.)
The book with a down arrow indicates DLC/Chapters.
The Tower is for PvP zones

The numbers indicate story order. Note: when you use the setting to sort by Mainstory Ascending, The DC and EP intro zones are out of order because the intro zones are all numbered 1 so alphabetical order takes over. I fixed it in my game by editing the VotansImprovedLocations100017.lua file to number them 1.1 (Bleakrock (Ödfels) and Stros M'kai) and 1.2 (Bal Foyen and Betnikh).
For the first part: Yes, that is correct.
For the second part: Good point. I check the sorting.

Thank you
Why it should not? It is just a new location. Which will be auto-generated.

@jacku: tower/keep means PVP. The other symbols belong to Cadwell's Almanach. You must be a new player You will know.
