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.

Thanks for the update. I dont use your UI and would feel uncomfortable to just rip it out of the UI, thats just me.

However, I had already fixed it last night. Just added two -- on line 13

--SetCVar("advancedWorldMap",1)

Worked like a charm. But still, its always good to have addons updated for those that perfer to use them rather than just updating a whole UI and leaving seperate addons behind, my opinion of course!

But again, thanks.

8 months since authors last posting would indicate this. Pitty really as I liked this small addon.

Sometimes I think WowInterface should go through there addon database and remove all the obsoleted and abandoned addons.

Any way to get this upgraded for 4.3? Its showing funky locations for myself and party members. Can be standing right next to someone and it shows them way away from me.

sure, no one's holding you

IN before any 'freezes' reports you might want to read at least through 1-2 pages of comments as this issue was brought up a couple of times.
I even had to test it a number of time through CPU profiling add-ons to make sure it doesn't consume any extraordinary amount of resources, I even posted results somewhere here.
This add-on does absolutely no calculation or anything for that matter when the map is closed so it simply can not cause any kind of lags or whatever when map is closed.
Zones change 'lag' is another issue that WAS ALREADY MENTIONED on this very page and m_Map has nothing to do with it either.

PLEASE update this MOD. Has anyone attempted to contact the Author?

I have the same problem.
I commented out the coords code and that made it slightly better, but there seems to be a leak of some kind when opening and closing the map several times over an hour or two (doing archeology for instance). At first it's fine and clean, but eventually it gets really laggy and you have to do a reloadui.

I've read through the code several times bug testing, can't seem to find the issue. The map rescales every time you open it, it might be something there?

I had a similar issue with FPS drop. In this particular case the conflict seemed to occur with Tomtom (particularly with its ability to show coordinates on the world map). While both mods where showing coordinates, the fps issue was present. Disabling tomtom's ability to display coordinates resolved the framerate drop.

Issue was gone, but as soon as I hit a section of the map where blizz implemented phasing the problem came back.

So I went to another area which also had phasing (Redridge) with m_map disabled and sure enough the problem occurred with the blizz map. Once the area was fully loaded the problem went away.

Conclusion: Not the addon, just some weird issue with phasing. I should've done this off the bat. Thank you for your time
no worries, at least we managed to figure out what's broken

It might just be a conflict between addons so I'm gonna re-test with just m_map +SLDT for fps.
That's exactly what you should do in before any 'bug' reports.
If you have another add-ons that modify the map and using same methods as m-Map does it will be like installing 2 anti-viruses and watch the epic battle between them and your system...
