ZoomOut fixes the bug [believed to be] in the default UI that sometimes causes the minimap to zoom to the middle level when you log in. Since the game keeps two separate zoom levels (inside and outside, generally), you had to zoom out twice when you encounter this bug -- and it got old quick.

Anyway, ZoomOut zooms the minimap all the way out whenever you receive the minimap update event (initial load and when moving between inside and outside -- does not fire when you manually adjust zoom, but will zoom out the next time you cross the inside/outside boundary).

While I haven't experienced the zoom bug when zoning, I have seen one report on it, and thus I included a line at the bottom of the ZoomOut.lua file which can be uncommented (remove the two hyphens) to also zoom out when zoning if you experience that issue.

The bug still happens to me. It seems to happen more often on my alts though, which I don't really get. I imagine it's tied in to some addon problem.

No longer necessary in 4.0?

Can anyone verify if there is still a need for this addon? I disabled my addon to see if the bug it "fixed" was actually fixed, but I haven't encountered the random non-zoomed out minimap after logging in since the 4.0 patch. This leads me to believe the issue was resolved and this addon is unnecessary (for its main purpose, anyway), but I rather not say that on the addon's description until I know for sure if the issue really is fixed.


My new shaman seems to be getting this issue, so apparently the bug is still somewhat active. Guess this addon isn't so useless as I thought yet. :P
