Votan's Minimap  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6.6
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 )

After updating to the latest release, FPS have taken a huge drop. I had to disable the minimap to get fps back to normal numbers.

I don't think the texture is working the way you intend it to.

@amber1019 And why do you think that?
The texture should be tight and closer together.
It's meant to be more of an indication of which direction our camera is looking, rather than an actual representation of our field of view.
Like this:

Do you have plans of doing a smaller texture like the picture I shared? Even a little tighter than the one I showed would be nice. No pressure. I don't mean to bug you about it. I was just curious if we'll get more of a "camera direction indication" texture to use as an option.
Thanks for the addon, Votan. I'd be lost without it. Literally.

Question Field Of View Not Working?

This option doesn't do anything for me. Even after I turn it on and do a /reloadui.
Can you post an image of what the maps are supposed to look like with this option enabled?

I kind of like Votan's addon, but I have a weird bug when using it (or perhaps it's a feature): everytime the minimap zooms in or out all the pins disappear and quickly moves to their right places. It's very annoying, is there any way to make this stop?

Thank you in advance for your answers.
You can disable "World Map Tweaks". But please don't come and tell me you have massive frame drops on (sub-)zone changes.

Hello everyone.

I'm trying to use Votan's Mini Map along with Bandit User Interface, since the minimap provided by the latter doesn't satisfy me. I used to use Mini Map by Fyrakin, but using that along with BUI makes the Map invisible (at least for me).

I kind of like Votan's addon, but I have a weird bug when using it (or perhaps it's a feature): everytime the minimap zooms in or out all the pins disappear and quickly moves to their right places. It's very annoying, is there any way to make this stop?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

I'd like to get the big dorky "current quest" off of covering the middle of the map.. but can't.

Is there another way to turn it off?
I have actually the same problem for ALL Votan's addon.

IF i want to get the settings, i am forced to use the https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info...AMadapter.html which i totally dislike.

i did try all i could, as far as possible, downloaded 3 times the addons, removed all my others addons and libs that were not required by Votan, nothing works but this library that is not up to date either because using https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info937-HarvensAStoLAMadapter.html the game ask me to get a new version of this.
Yes, confirmed.
Harven's Addon Settings is not crashing, but not providing newly required data. So it says, they are not available.
As a work-a-round you need to use the adapter until Harven updates the lib.

sorry.
I was able to access settings with that harven's addon, love the minimap but I can't get rid of this dumb quest on it. Nobody else I know running this is having this problem. It's driving me nuts. Any idea how to stop this from displaying? I don't see anything in the settings that remotely sound like "plaster current quest all over the map". Tried turning off random settings but no help.

edit: Holy cow, nevermind. I found it. It was the UI displaying on-top of the map.. not the map.
