Point Me - Inactive

Version: Inactive
by: Yksrep [More]

Hallow's End World Event Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor and Outland

Have you ever asked someone to point you in the right direction?

Have you ever said to someone "Just Point Me in the right direction, and get out of my way!"

Then Point Me is for you.

Point Me is a very simple and light weight addon.

The addon allows you to select a destination from an option menu when opening the world map. The option menu contains all Zones and local POI's. The POI's are the same as the requirement for each step in the Explorer Achievement.

This addon can assist you with, getting your Explorer Achievement, as well as pointing you in the right direction to go anywhere in Azeroth or Outland that you wish to travel to. Point Me will become increasingly useful with the release of World of Warcraft Cataclysm and with old world flying.

Point Me is a fire and forget addon, that once you have selected you destination, all that it required of you is to start traveling in the right direction. Point Me makes use of the TomTom addon, by displaying a Crazy arrow, Distance to destination and Estimated time till arrival.

Note that the TomTom addon is required for this addon to function.


Remember Point Me is still a work in progress, I will be adding updates all the time with suggestion of fixes, so be sure to check back ever now and again.

Current World Event

Point Me will be continue to be updated with all world events that require visitation to many areas across Azeroth and Outland.

Path:
On this one, I'm pretty sure you'd mention it if it was in the mod. Basic idea:
I don't like to figure out where I am and where I'm going when I'm farming loops. I know where I tend to find minerals/ore, but I'd rather watch TV and have an arrow say "go that way" so I'd set up 20 or 30 custom POIs and then make a *path* of them, and maybe set it to loop, so it'd just always point me to the next place to check, and when I get there, it sets the arrow to the one after that.
Look for the Addons Routes, Gatherer and GathererDB

This could also be used to help out with things like the Netherwing Race. Mark points where he turns, or where he's heading to next, so you can head there that little bit earlier...
I have never head of this im not sure if there are other addons out there that would be better suited to do this. I would say the easiest way to do something like would be to repeat the quest multiple times and jot down on peace of paper all of the points that he turns and then create a macro using /way XX, YY to set the route that would be faster.

Those are my ideas that this mod keeps making me hope it does.

Oh, one more -- dunno if you do it, but the default TomTom ctrl-click-on-map to add a spot and go to it? Kinda annoying -- I find Ih ave to ctrl-click then left click then choose "set crazy arrow" then when I get there, I have to open my map, left click again, and say "delete waypoint" -- making that a single thing would be awesome (obviously I could ask TomTom to do the same thing, but that mod has its own agenda, and this mod seems more about pointing you to a POI, not littering your map with useless info )
This is all to do with the TomTom addon all my addon does it utilize a part of the TomTom API to set pre-defined points

Oh oh oh, a fourth one:
Do you have POIs like the books for Well Read, or animals for To All The Squirrels...? Things like that could be neat too!
This isnt really the the purpose of the addon, the only way that I could see this being of any use for Achivements such as the ones you mentioned would be if you knew the general area that you would have to travel too to complete the Achievement.
