Votan's Minimap  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6.2
by: votan [More]
Description
This addon reactivates the mini map from ZOS. Thus the mini map does not do less, but also not more than the built-in world map, because it is the built-in world map.

No artificial synchronization of (custom) pins between mini map and world map. All kind of pins are supported by design.
But also no border pins or rotation mode and such features. My mini map is intended to be lightweight and fast.
  • Includes world map performance tweaks, which can be disabled for performance comparison.
    The tweaks changing the pin rendering to utilize the CPU up to a framerate of 75 only. Seeing the pins rendered over time is not a sign of overload of this addon, but a compensation of others.
  • Conflicts with other mini maps can be expected. Therefore the mini map can be disabled to use the tweaks only.
  • I do not recommend to use the AUI mini map module at the same time as mine.
  • Gamepad support, but limited due to lines in ZOS source code, they call a "total hack" themself:
    Positioning and resizing in keyboard mode only.
  • The window is resizable via mouse. (this code is written by ZOS, not me)

If you think you need a full-featured mini map try the MiniMap by Fyrakin.

@Shinni did a great job creating a plug-in for a Circular Votan's Mini Map.
And if you want to show group pins in different colors and/or icons, such as showing a different color for dead players, you may want to use Votan's Group Pins.

Providing a mini map can be an unthankful job. I guess Fyrakin could sing a song or two. Therefore I can't resist to say:
The addon works well for me. Otherwise I would not have released it. If you think you have performance problems due to this addon, help tracking down or stop using.
Frame freezes are most likely coming from an addon providing a lot of pins without taking care about creating even a simple pin takes some time multiplied by hundreds.
In this case the author of that addon can make it more mini map friendly, only.

Thanks to @scootworks, @Anceane and @Drakanwulf for testing

Remarks
  • There are key-bindings to toggle the mini map on/off. For technical reasons the toggle while at siege weapons needs its own key-binding. But you can re-use the same key.
  • If you feel dissatisfied with the second main menu entry for "Addons", take a look at Harven's AS to LAM adapter.
  • In order to move or resize the window, you need to go to the mouse-cursor mode. You can do this by pressing the key-bind for mouse-cursor mode, which is "." (dot) by default. Or you press "Enter" as if you want to start chatting.
    Once you have the mouse pointer you can drag the window with the title-bar and bottom-bar. Or resize it using the border. The mouse pointer will change. Like in Windows. (And I guess MAC, too )

Yes, all Show* settings are player-based. And that is intended.
Different characters for different use cases.

You could use notepad on the saved-variable while the game is not running.

@votan

I wasn't the one to complain, but it was doing it on 1.6.1. I just tried 1.6.2 and it's working fine. TY for all that you do

Is it version 1.6.2 or was it version 1.6.1?

It's not just one change, after restarting the game, it's any change made that locks the game up. Thanks for implementing a fix soon!

I found that to enable map in combat simply go into lua saved variable file and change ["showCombat"] = false, to ["showCombat"] = true,

Do this before loading ESO.

Game doesnt lock up now, only if you try to make the change ingame will it freeze up.

Hey, I wanted to make the minimap show in combat. But as soon as I clicked on the "OFF" text next to "show on Combat" the game froze permanently. Had to use task manager to kill the eso process. Thinking maybe I was just unlucky I tried again, but the same thing happened.

So, is there a way to enable "show in combat" in the lua saved variable?

Minimap lock eso

I updated to your new version. And if I try to go and make any changes to the options it is locking my eso up hard lock. have to crash out of the game..

I delete the SavedVariables and still does the same thing.

I removed all of my addon and SavedVariables So the only addon that was on was the Votan's Minimap 1.6.1
Libaddonmenu 2.0 r29. When I try to make any change to the addon options I will just hard lock the game.

I download the ver 1.6.0 and installed it... And it will work ok without any problems. So something in the version 1.6.1.

Thank You

Ya know what I really love about you Votan (besides your awesome addons)? Your updates are always on point. I never have to wait for them or wonder if you're ever going to get around to updating them. Thank you for always being on top of it!

Border pins?

Are you ever planning to add border pins to the minimap? Is it even possible to do for your addon? That is pretty much the only thing I miss (maybe besides clickable wayshrines and tooltips for pins). I know there is an other minimap addon which has that functionality but that addon kills performance and does not look as good as yours.
