Foglight

Version: 2.7
by: semlar [More]

Fills in unexplored areas on the world map and provides a satellite view of the surrounding area.

Adds a small dropdown menu to the bottom right of the map to switch views.

This is not a map replacement, it simply attaches to the map frame and should be compatible with most existing map addons.

2.7 - Removed Blasted Lands overlays
2.6 - Updated for WoD
2.5 - Added underwater maps for vash'jir, prevented updates if map hasn't changed.
2.4 - Changed menu to a standard dropdown, adjusted frame levels to reduce interference.
2.3 - Added a new menu to toggle the different views, updated the database.
2.2 - Fixed bug with satellite map displaying in Silvershard Mines and other maps like it.
2.1 - Fixed bug with satellite map displaying in microdungeons.
2.0 - Added satellite map.
1.03 - Hid check button for maps without fog.
1.02 - Moved unexplored overlay textures to appear beneath the explored areas.
1.01 - Fixed world map highlight showing up under the overlays.

Re: Re: Bug

Thanks seams to work fine haven't seen the map like this since I change the code - also no green textures yet. I'll report if anything like this happens again

Re: Bug

It looks like it's only loading half of the terrain textures for whatever reason.

I can't reproduce this, flying between zones is not enough to trigger it for me.

I have an idea of what's causing it though. Rapid changes in what map is being displayed could cause it to try and load new textures before the ones in the queue have finished, and they could end up loading the wrong texture or hiding it.

That being said, the map doesn't change when you move between zones. If it does for you, it's from another addon. The speed required to cause this would either have to come from an addon changing the map before it finishes loading or possibly clicking between zones very quickly.

This isn't something that can easily be changed because blizzard has made it extremely difficult to detect whether a texture exists or not. I would have to rewrite how it determines that and I don't have time to do that right now.

If you don't mind the occasional neon green missing texture, you can comment out line 413ish
Lua Code:
  1. SuperSetTexture(texture, texturePath, textureWidth, textureHeight)
and add in
Lua Code:
  1. texture:SetTexture(texturePath)
  2. texture:SetSize(textureWidth, textureHeight)
  3. texture:Show()
That should prevent it from happening, but will also prevent it from being able to detect whether a texture is missing.

Bug

Using Version: 2.5 and there is a bug with zone switching while in sat map mode (maybe also others?).
Open the map and fly to an other zone while the map is open and it will look like this:

Better than what? There is a great range of map addons and Foglight is just the perfect enchantment for them. I personaly prefer mMap because its lightweight and has many options integrated. But many other say Mapster is the best map addon

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Vashjir

There's a delay because I don't hardcode which textures exist, it has to figure that out on the fly and it isn't keeping a permanent cache of them so every time you reload it has to check for their existence (which is really slow).

I can change how this works which would make it use more memory but should load the textures a lot faster.

There's also just a lot of textures so unless I preload them somehow it can take a while to draw them all.

Yes works fine and the performance is already much better now. Thanks for the quick fix
BTW was the "slow" loading of the map limited to server speed of is it even slower if you have not a SSD hard drive like me?

I understand what the modes did but thought the names of the buttons don't let you know what they do so I changed it like this now:
local moads = {'Hybrid', 'Off', 'Satmap', 'Unexplored'}

I'm thinking about for what the addon coud be usfull for, maybe Questing? Or if you want to explore a part of the map there shoud be a indicator to show where you have to go to trigger it.
