m Map  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.9
by: Monolit [More]
m_Map or monoMap

About
  • Originally inspired by Nevcairiel's Mapster and p3lim's pMap, m_Map is a lightweight add-on with few world map modifications.
  • The goal was to apply all the important features to the WorldMap frame without drastically changing it.
  • m_Map consumes about 10kb and no CPU cycles when map is not visible.
  • This add-on was created for people who just want to have clean WorldMap with a little bit of extra functionality.
  • It's not tested with gatherer and questhelper-like add-ons, but I suppose it should work just fine.

Key features
  • new miniWorldMap style;
  • minimize WorldMap when player enters combat;
  • display player and cursor coordinates;
  • remove the black background behind the big map;
  • enable keyboard while big map is opened;
  • no GUI;
  • ability to set custom scale and position for miniWorldMap (via editing m_Map.lua);
  • custom size for group markers;
  • fog removal.

My fps drops heavily anywhere. I like the mod itself but that is killing me, I'll be testing it on my main rig tomorrow to see if the same problem occurs and let you know. If it continues though I'll have to stop using till some type of a fix is done...

Edit: After reading what this other fellow is saying I checked mine as well, mine drops to 20fps and doesn't move till I close the map.

In my situation, it was either 1 map icon (solo) or at most, 5 map icons (5-man dungeon). This is why I was a bit confused and decided to try and pinpoint what was causing this FPS decrease. My FPS would not restore after a few seconds, but would instead continue to drop. Values would go from (rough examples) 50, 39, 21, 15 and stay at 15 until the map was closed.

I will continue to monitor things with this current update to the map. May I ask what profiling addon you were using in the previous screenshots you posted?

D'oh thanks for noting that, I accidentally removed that string when I was cleaning up the code before my first release here. It's going to be fxed in upcoming update.

2Sec I made some changes in the latest update to how those map blips update, so it should be better now.

Еще просьба: пакуй архивы в zip, а то rar вовинтерфейсовский апдейтер не понимает, неудобно вручную обновляться каждый раз.
Не люблю zip, не люблю автоапдейтеры, но если не буду забывать, то в будущем буду заливать zip архивы.

Да ты хоть на корейском напиши, я все равно не могу понять что ты имеешь в виду, какие "обе мапы"? Если ты про большую и маленькую, то ответ я уже дал постом ниже.

I'm not sure I understand what you request here.
If you talk about scaling big world map, it's not gonna happen, I don't wanna touch this thing at all. This add-on is generally about styling and tweaking mini World Map. On other hand if you talk about separate scaling options for map elements (like fonts etc.), then it's not gonna happen either, since map_scale option is there for a reason to ... well, scale the mini World Map (including all the elements)! Yours C.O.

Yeah, it is indeed a bug, thanks for reporting it. Background opacity fix is coming in the next update.

Two small feature requests:
  • add scaling option for map separately from zone map
  • currently when you try to regulate opacity via default interface background remains non-transparent, this needs fixing, IMHO.

Coloring was there for a reason - to determine my add-ons during the development, however I understand your point so I removed coloring from first few letters to keep the alphabetical order of the add-on list.

I've never been a fan of Skinner to be honest so it's quite unlikely I'm gonna write something like that
Thank you so much for your understanding! I love seeing such colored names from an aesthetic standpoint but then the practical part of me gets a tad confused when looking alphabetically.

I am enjoying the addon! Will certainly post more if anything else comes up.
