MetaMap (Fan Update)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.0.2b6
by: charroux [More]
This is an unofficial WotLK (3.0.2) fix for MetaMap until an official release comes out.

All the modules seem to be working, but there are a few bugs still left. (There is at least 1 that I know of.) The Waypoint module (WKB) has been modified with a different arrow and text layout, and any <ctrl> click on it will hide the frame.

Note: The Stormwind map change in WotLK makes all the map notes and tracking data (TRK) incorrect for the entire city.


DESCRIPTION:
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info4788-MetaMap.html
============
MetaMap adds features to the WoW world map, keeping all mapping type features in a single place.
Some features are:

Adjust the map window size.
Move the map anywhere on the screen.
Adjust the opacity of the window & maps.
Saved sets for toggling between 2 map modes.
Allows full player movement, messaging, etc. with map open.
Adds coords to the main map and the Minimap
Adds Instance maps which open to the correct instance you enter.
Default data included for all bosses & locations etc.
User editable notes for all maps, including instance maps.
NPC/Mob database collectable by mouseover or keypress.
Toggling on/off display of unexplored areas of the map.
Boss Loot Tables displays all the loot dropped by bosses, and more.
Waypoint system to guide you to any set point.
Complete Quest logger with optional history database.
Tracker module for gathering Herbs/Ores etc.
NoteBook module for additional notes, linked to Tooltips.
Inbuilt Import and export facilities for various data formats.
Inbuilt Backup and Restore facilities.
Button on Minimap to open or close the World Map or display MetaMap options.
Key bindings for various MetaMap functions.
Full support for Titan Bar.

INSTALLATION:
=============
Extract ALL folders in the archive to the Interface\AddOns\ location. If you wish the Instance maps to be populated with default information, then on first installation you will need to select 'Extended Options' from the MetaMap menu.
Select the 'Database' tab, then click 'Load Imports'. This will enable the default import button, 'Import Instance Notes'. Click on the 'Import' button to import the data.


ISSUES/COMPATIBILITIES:
=======================
Some addons may reset the map to gather location data.
If your map continuously jumps back to your current location when selecting another map,
it will be due to another addon resetting it. In most cases the authors have made changes
to correct this so, download the latest version of any conflicting addon.

302b2 - Fixed a few more bugs: WorldMapButton and TRK menus
302b3 - More fixes, Waypoint (BWP) arrow reverted to original red. To get the sword arrow, copy the \MetaMapBWP\Artwork\Arrows\Sword\ files into it's parent folder (overwrite the files). Also copy MetaMapBWP.xml to the \MetaMap\ folder.
302b4 - More bugs created than squashed.
304b5 - More bugs found and hopefully fixed. Waypoint arrow style is selectable via menu. MiniMap button is dragable. Workaround for changing map locations with battlefied minimap on. Battlefield minimap will show instead if you try to show the world map during combat (instead of showing nothing). Notes shift for new Stormwind map.

302b6 - Northrend mapnotes Import/Export (EXP/CVT) fixed. Pet menu bug fixed. Tracker mouseover bug fixed. Many other fixes. The "Set Focus" and "Target" right-click dropdown menu items are tainted by the MetaMap menu system implementation (i.e. they will cause a "Action Not Allowed" error). I am unable to fix it without some help (it's beyond my LUA/WoW knowledge), sorry.

Minimap Maps instead of Default Blizzard Maps

Downloaded this tonight, going to try it out instead of Cartographer.

I was wondering if there's a way to replace the Blizzard zone maps with maps made from the minimap files in either Cartographer/Metamap. I've tried yAtlas and it's almost what I'm looking for, but not quite. I'm hoping to get a map addon that does this as well as support for Gatherer. I'm willing to make the map images. Any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks!

Mr. Shady

I've finally gotten around to rolling a DK and was surprised to find that I can not add notes to this section.

It appears that the zone is not currently supported by this mod. If there is a fix or a map I need to download I would appreciate anyone pointing me in the right direction.

edit: I am currently using 3.02b6

questinfo for metamap ?

Is there something like QuestInfo for Metamap ?

Looking for an Addon that displays all available quest/questgivers on the map like Questinfo does on cartographer.
I prefer metamap due to its really good note management and i like its functional design. Cartographer is nice with 1-2 notes , but becomes annoying if u have 20+ notes on a zone and then gg trying to find the one u need.

mapnotes (fanupdate) would solve this, but the waypoint/ arrow function isnt working (at least here)

p.s metamap looks a bit glitched on zones with floors - aka dalaran. The button to switch floors messes a bit up with the option button.

@Big Guns : gatherer and /or gathermate display veins/herbs etc on metamap w/o any problem. It has to be configured by those addons if they display the nodes and under what circumstances.

Let me start by saying that I think it is great that somone has picked this up so we an use it in NR. I have so many notes and nodes marked that I didnt want to lose them.

But I have a problem. None of the NR nodes (be they mining or herbs) show up on the map. When I click on a new one I get the saving to DB msg but nothing shows up. I can save my own notes in NR but not herbs or minerals. I suppose I could do it manually but having the littel symbol to tell you what it is great.

So, is this a bug or do I need ot change some configuration?

PS After doing some further reading I enabled the WKB module to load and now marks show up on the map indicating nodes although it is just stars. Better than nothing, so that is an improvement...lol.

After this, i must logout and login to be able to open the map again.

I concur. I occasionally get this error when I attempt to open the map either through the shortcut or through a macro button.

Having troubles receiving notes sent from other players. This seems to be causing errors which I get instead of the actual note at the moment the first note is sent. No error is caused along with no notes recevied for any sent to same character after the first?

WKB autotracking bug

I have a problem with the WKB autotracker, probably since the 3.0x updates:
it simply isn't adding autotracked info to the WKB, unless I open the Knowledge Base -> Options window & click on some option there (like click on 28 + infinity range, I normall have it set to infinite range, or doubleclick on "auto tracking" to toggle it off/on).
And then, if I relog or something, it stops autotracking again (saved variables not being applied on logon?

You need to be a paying member of the site in order to get access to his coordinates file and members area though!
If the latest version of MetaMap is still not showing that the notes data imported, then please report it. I thought I fixed that bug.

I'll put it back in the next release. You can get it from an older archived version until then. But if you've already imported instance data in a previous MetaMap version, there is nothing new in the file, so it won't do anything.
