TownLocator
Version: r1
by: Soeters [More]
I've stopped playing WoW, so this addon won't be updated again, at least not by me.
If someone feels like updating it, just PM me.


What is this ?

TownLocator is an addon to help people locate in capitals. It shows map and minimap icons representing what they are, for exemple a flightmaster or a class trainer.

At this time it only have Dalaran data, but Wowhead should provide the data for the other capitals at the end of these holidays.

Features
  • TomTom support: you can go to a waypoint using TomTom
  • Hiding all map, or minimap, or both, icons
  • Higher Learning Books in blue

Credits
  • Cargor for his data
  • Tulhjin for his Astronomer library which I finally deleted but I kept some of his code
  • Saiket for his tooltip help
  • Esamynn for making Astrolabe
  • Cladhaire for making TomTom

This... is... AWESOME! I'll go get my ball.

*Edit: Is there a way to add scaling to the icons please? Also, when in Dalaran, it's awesome to see these icons, but when you go to The Underbelly, the icons stay on the map. Possibly a way to have it swap?

Also, was curious about how new data will be added / entered to the database? Is there a data-mining setup where notes will be shared with other users of this addon, or will you have regular updates with manually entered data from various sources? I'm sure a lot of us would love to help you continue this outstanding idea of an addon. The icons are superb.

The database is so huge that I don't have enough time to do it.
So I asked Wowhead and they'll give me those data as soon as possible.

Anyway glad people like it

Could you paste the error report here so I can see the problem.

Also do you use another map addons, and what is the wow version in Taiwan (3.0,3.1,3.2 or 3.3 ?).

With all these informations I should be able to fix it, but I may not upload another version if that comes from a wow version because the API changed a lot with those patchs

Hum, that's strange.

Does it always happen, or just if you do specific things ?

And do you use other map addons ?

Try to use it with Mapster disabled, then with QuestHelper disabled, and to finish with both disabled.

Then tell me when it occurs.

There is no addon button if you press Esc unless you have ACP (or such addon)

So you didn't get any error if all the addons were disabled.

Can you send me your addon list so that I can see where could be the interference between my addon and another.

Try to use it with only TownLocator, ACP and BugSack first.
If it works well, enable all the addons except Mapster and QuestHelper
