Extra Compass Pins
Version: 1.1.0
by: trollusk [More]
Add several new pin types to the overhead compass, for those of us who play without minimaps. Each pin type can be toggled on or off individually. Each pin type has its own colour which can be set in the configuration menu.

Town services:
- Stables
- Banks
- Outlaw Refuges

Group markers:
- Group leader - yes, the game has this already, but not coloured.
- Group members!

Cardinal compass points (N,S,E,W) - yes, the compass has these already, but they are easily obscured by other pins, making it impossible to navigate. This addon adds coloured compass points which are always rendered on top of all other pins.
(New in 1.1) The normal text labels ("N", "S" etc) on the compass are hidden while these pins are shown.

Depends on the following libraries:
- LibAddonMenu2
- Custom Compass Pins
1.0.1
Fixed: all town service pins should now show up correctly.

I don't use Minion. Since ESO needs the addon in a subfolder, I would have to create each folder myself, for every addon I use. With all libraries there are 197 subfolders in my addon folder. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why everybody do it this way and not with loose files?

Yeah, if software would have a brain ... I prefer soft and hardware not having any brain and doing things automatically, maybe I watched Terminator too often

Maybe future versions of Minion, once the dev got time to work on it, will provide an error list at the end.
Not sure if the Minion.log file currently already says that the files could not be extracted and placed properly.

Until then we share the "howtos" and use the WIKI, and we all need to read a bit more (again)

The folder must be the same name as the txt file, so without any spaces, just like the linked Wiki by TNTKokser is telling you.

That's why the the addon still will fail to load properly OR it maybe loading fine due to ZOs not having coded their checks properly
OK, zip file reuploaded again with renamed folder. Thanks.

AS far as my Minion be bugged I have over 50 Add Ons downloaded and working just fine. I even help guild mated with thier add ons. To save time I have even re-installed a fresh copy of minion and reworked all of my add ons. I have no problems. I will try to download your add on again. I like the idea and want to use it
The file Im downloading by clicking the big download button in the top right of the mod page, absolutely does not contain those extra files. And I doubt theyd cause problems even if they were included. However the files are not all in a subdirectory inside the zip, maybe that is the problem. I will upload a changed zip file later today. Thanks for your help and interest.

Minion is not the problem. This addon is missing it's toplevel folder. It is wrong packed. If you want to test the addon, create a folder in "C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns" named "ExtraCompassPins" and unpack the content of this addon into this folder. Or wait some days until he reads this and will correct his mistake. Finally

No, it is NOT standard. You may want to download any other addon from this site (but yours) and will notice, that there is exactly one folder inside the zip file. And in this folder you'll find all files. Perhaps you want to have a look here.

Please just take it off the site until it fully tested and downloading with Minion. This way there will be no negative feedback.
Im sorry that Minion is giving you trouble.
If you download the zip file for this mod manually, you will see that it contains one lua file, one txt file, one LICENSE file (plain text), and a textures folder containing 4 dds files (images).

In the mean time, you can download the file and unzip it to your live/Addons folder where all your other addons live.

When you upload a file to the site, it has to be approved. So it does not appear immediately. You would know this if you had ever contributed anything to the site.

To the author: UPDATE! There are comments about this for 3 days now and your addon is still online.
No need to be so rude and entitled. You wouldn't order people around like this in real life, don't do it online.

Thanks.
It's showing up on Minion for me, maybe try checking again. New addons don't appear in Minion immediately.

I'm looking into disabling the normal cardinal points, I agree it would be good to do so.

yh same for me, minion do not install it you need to do manually. minion get stuck saying downloading, but never install it
