Accurate World Map v2



REQUIRED LIBRARIES:






About

Accurate World Map v2 (AWM) is the culmination of a months-long endeavour to totally recreate ESO's world map - remastering it in 8k(!) as well as fixing various lore issues, to improve the map's overall quality. It is seamlessly functional with vanilla, and adds new QoL features which are customisable in the addon's settings panel.

Note:

AWM moves zones from their intended location and may/will probably break addons that add pins/edits pins, please make sure these addons are deactivated before install as it may break your installation.


IMPORTANT:

Please DO NOT install or update AWM while the game is still running! ESO only loads textures when the game has been launched from scratch, if you install or update while the game is still running, AWM's textures will not be loaded and thus the addon will not work!

Features
  • Remastered, 8k vanilla-style map
  • Lore friendly overhaul of the map in line with previous games
  • Zones and dungeons moved to their lore accurate places
  • Lore accurate renames of zones and places
  • Customise how wayshrines appear on the world map
  • Gamepad support
  • Other minor QoL features


Compatibility & Known Issues

Any addon that alters the world map in any meaningful way, or adds pins to the world map in vanilla locations are not compatible with this addon, as Accurate World Map moves zones and pins from their vanilla locations to be more accurate with the real shape of Tamriel.

Addon Incompatibilities

The following addons have been tested to be incompatible with AWM:
  • Votan's Tamriel Map
  • Quest Map
  • Highly Detailed World Map
  • Lorebooks
  • EasyTravel
Votan's Tamriel Map alters the world map similar to how AWM does, its zone labels and recoloured hover effects don't show up correctly, and only when you scroll in/out over the zone.

Accurate World Map also overwrites Highly Detailed World Map, so none of its changes will be visible.

Lorebooks relies on the global Tamriel map's positioning for its books, which AWM alters, so installing it with AWM will have issues such as books appearing in the ocean.


Minor Incompatibilities

The following addons may have minor incompatibilities with AWM, untested or otherwise work fine:

  • MapPins
  • Destinations
  • True Exploration
  • DarkUI
  • GuildShrines
  • Votan's Improved Locations
Known Issues
  • We have a few issues to iron out still. Report any found to Github
  • PvP battle marks dont respect map changes, this is a LibMapThemer issue
  • Waypoints no longer appear on the tamriel map, this is intentional as it doesn't display correct positions
  • Various markers may appear in incorrect locations, all these are known and being worked on.
  • English only for descriptions and renames.
Made By



Thanks To
  • XyoDarc, TPC9000, Votan, Sir Insidiator, Sharlikan, Baertram, IsJustAGhost and the rest of the ESOUI addon community for their coding help.
  • The authors of Highly Detailed World Map (MrPikPik), uespLog (daveh), GuildShrines (Valve) and World Map Wayshrines Controller (ErianKalil) for inspiration.
  • Everyone who's followed this project and encouraged us along the way.
  • We also appreciate the feedback and bug reports you've been giving us.

In Closing

We hope this addon serves you well in your game and we hope Zenimax sees this addon and takes inspiration to make ESO even better. Everyone who cares about this franchise would love it if they did.

Also Available On
v2.0.3 - 11/03/2023
- fixed bugs
- fixed mouse over with wayshrines
- option to remove zone hover fade added

v2.0.2 - 11/01/2023
- fixed ui issues related to settings not working
- updated build version so settings should be wiped on next boot/reloadui
- various LibMapThemer issues fixed

v2.0.0 - 31/10/2023

It's been a while! If you want to know why it took so long since the last update, check the comments on the addon page

- Updated to Necrom (and Endless Archive)
- Totally overhauled the map style to be more accurate to vanilla ESO
- Merged Eltheric Map into Tamriel Map
- Added zone map labels (ala Votan's Tamriel Map)
- Additional wayshrine filters; by type, by major settlement, and by guildshrines
- Gamepad mode actually works now
- Many many many bugs and issues fixed
- A year's worth of other stuff I've probably forgotten

For addon authors:

We have separated AWM core internals into its own lib, LibMapThemer, which means you can use AWM's map theming tech in your addon if you want to. AWM is now the example implementation of a LMT Theme.

We are also accepting separate theme packs for AWM - look out for documentation on that soon.

Did you install while the game was still running? The textures need to be loaded from a cold start of the game.

LoreBooks compatibility

Hello, I don't know if this is an issue with LoreBooks or AWM, but enabling both addons messes up the LoreBooks locations for unread books:

With just LoreBooks:


With LoreBooks and AWP:


Any idea how to fix this? Both addons are up to date.

descriptions have been updated in the latest LMT v1.0.4, if you have that version installed and its still giving issues, try installing in a bit, and if you already have 1.0.4, reinstall it please.

sorry about that, i pushed an update just now to fix it on lmt's side, its still v1.0.4 so you'll need to reinstall that version. Considered this fixed now

This is not an issue/bug technically, as the fade applies toward zone hovers and not zone descriptions (aka when the zone name appears). However I have yet to make this optional, was planning on it but was working on other stuff at the time, will be pushing an update to make this optional soon to remedy this, Should be up soon, sorry for making you wait.

I have no idea how to get it to show on minion (perhaps its my end) and this is an LMT bug that i have now fixed*, it was a simple mistake on my end, settings are now also fixed, i updated the settings version number so your settings should revert to default on next load.

Why did AWM take so long to update?

I'm anticipating questions on why AWM wasn't updated for basically a year. There are many reasons, but here are the main ones summarised:

I got hired by the company that does the UESP wikis because of this mod, and spent a lot of last year overhauling their interactive maps tech.

Didn't have a lot of motivation for AWM when doing map stuff full time already. But that's finished now, and I and XyloDarc (more below) will have time to keep it updated for foreseeable future.

Code rewrite and map overhaul

AWM V2 was always going to be a code rewrite and total map overhaul (from Vyl's side). There were so many issues reported to me that we decided that V2 would be a total rewrite, and allow for themes/potentially translations in future. That took a looooooooooot of time.

Personal disagreements

Vyl and I had some creative disagreements with the map, and decided to take a break for a while so we could come back to it later with clear heads. Vyl ended up losing interest in TES because of Necrom (the whole Indoril District was retconned to be Telvanni, and the "Telvanni Peninsula" is not even a peninsula, wtf!), and retired from the mod. She gave me full permission to continue with her art, assets and name as long as I made it clear she is the original map artist, which I have done.

In the interrim, with Vyl retired from the mod, XyloDarc made a fork of AWM that was updated for Necrom. Even without the original assets, he did a pretty good job replicating the style. Vyl approved him as the replacement artist, and we gave him the original assets to help do the art side of AWM v2.0 (which included adding the TP and Apocrypha to the map)

Will this happen again?

I can't say for sure, but XyloDarc and I are both still committed to updating the mod. I still love ESO, and refuse to play it without AWM. In the case that either Xylo or I are unavailable to update the mod, I've opened up permissions on AWM so that anyone can update it.

Xylo did a huge amount of work rewriting AWM to be more modular, so the only thing that needs to be updated in AWM is just the theme/map data, which can be edited by anyone with a patch.

Re: QuestMap/MapPins incompatibilities

AWM moves some zones across the map in the data (like eastmarch, auridon), so in practice for those mods it is like the actual land those zones are on have physically moved. this results in books/pins in the ocean or mountains in the local maps

QuestMap/MapPins incompatibilities

What specifically is incompatible between this mod and those two? I was under the impression that they only affect the Zone and sub-zone maps, whereas this mod only affects the overall Tamriel world map?
