AlphaMap Early Beta
Version: v3.54.30000.B.8
by: Telic [More]
Early Beta with Dungeon Locations moved to a separate plugin AddOn.

"_Utilities" Plugin for display of locations with Flight Masters, MailBoxes, Repair facilities on Zone maps;
And extra info on City maps of Banks / Auction Houses and Anvils/Forges....

"_TravelAgents" Plugin for displaying Flight Masters/Zeppelin Towers/Sea Ports/etc. on Continent maps - click on to see destinations.

Waypoint arrow support for Cartographer/TomTom via Right clicking on world map POIs

Fix to Carbonite support which 'tricks' other AddOns in to thinking TomTom is installed !

Update to MobMap Support + fix(es)
Update to MobMap Support (ad nauseum).

I'll have a look in to this - but the AlphaMap Pause button should still already help(?)
Yes, the Pause Button helps, but is not necessary if the option in atlas settings is disabled


Yes, depending on accurate zone naming in AlphaMap - which language client are you using?
I also wonder if it might be caused by the map updating of other AddOns - does it still happen if you disable the Atlas option you mention above?
Perhaps something has changed in WoW, is it possible for you to test with the last non-beta version of AlphaMap - I can't think of anything I've done that would affect this
I'm using the german client. It is still happening with the Atlas Option disabled. But not in all inis. I'll test this with the non Beta version if i have some spare time


Just NPC dots searched for in a particular way?
Or all types of mob/creature dots that get displayed?
I wonder if the scaling is not working... do you think the dots are appearing as if they were still being displayed on something as large as the World Map itself?
I've only tested with mob/creature dots. Scaling should be ok, must be something different.

Thanks for all the extra information

Would it be possible to have the atlas option enabled and prevent alphamap from switching automatically ?

If i'm understanding right alpha map should show the instance map if i am in an instance. I've tested this with a few instances and alpha map shows always the overall map of the continent which the instance belongs to.

Last but not least i found another issue with AlphaMobMap. If i try to locate a npc with mobmap the marks shown on alpha map are not shown on their correct place. I've double checked this with the marks shown on the worldmap.

(Sorry to depend so much on other people's testing I'm starting to think I may have to delay release until I can get my gaming PC back on line...)

You can use the AlphaMap Pause button to pause auto-updating, and then you 'should' be able to select any map you like....

Is this happening with 'MobMap' disabled?
Is this happening if AlphaMap is the ONLY enabled AddOn?
Does the problem go away when the _POI_ plugins are disabled, or if AlphaMobMap is disabled?

Do you mean Dhask's separate Flight Map addon ?
I had assumed people would just use that Flight Map, OR AlphaMap_POI_TravelAgents, rather than both... so just disable one yes?

My Flight master icons should just be on continent maps mainly, while the utility icons should be on the zone maps... so they shouldn't overlap - but I may have missed some?
There's definitely danger of some icons overlapping Instance icons....?

And yes i meant Dhask's Flight Map addon. Only his flightpoint symbols and this one of your AlphaMap_POI_TravelAgents are overlapping. So i disabled AlphaMap_POI_TravelAgents.

Another issue is if flight map is installed alphamap shows both icons for flightpoints. This is not very stylish because the icons are overlapping

Doh !

...and the errors get sillier
Fingers crossed that this time we will be testing the functionality rather than my ability to generate random bugs

What is "Alphamap_beta_instance_POI"? And what doesn't appear when you're in Naxx?

Just delete all the AlphaMap related folders from your AdddOn directory, and then re-install the main version.
Sorry. I was confused, too. I was using Alphamap, then downloaded this beta, and extracted it, not realizing that it overwrote the previous.

I think it's working, I just didn't activate the "instance" module.

Thanks!

Attempted update to MobMap support

Beta.4 should be reasonably stable apart from MobMap support which is definitley in an early-Beta state

Flight Routes ?

Has anyone tested what happens when left clicking on a Flight Master ?

Are the flight paths drawn correctly ?
I have a sneaky suspicion that the lines are being drawn in the wrong place, or may behave strangely if you change the scale of the AlphaMap....

All feedback appreciated
