Foglight (beta)
Version: 2.6
by: semlar [More]
The latest version is for the WoD beta, download 2.5 for live.

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.
2.6 - 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.

Wowhead just exports the data from the other versions of the client.

If you want to hide the background of the menu you can try this..
Lua Code:
  1. foglightmenuLeft:Hide()
  2. foglightmenuMiddle:Hide()
  3. foglightmenuRight:Hide()

The reason you couldn't use the menu with mMap is because they set the frame strata of the title bar (the one you click to drag) to the highest possible setting so it just shows up over everything else. I don't know why they did this because as far as I can tell you can't drag the mMap window.
The map is dragable (has to be enabled in lua -> local lock_map_position = false) for my Interface I have modiefied the map to show up biger, it has a transperent black border and I made cordinates more precise.

The new dropdown looks much better!
But there is no way to hide the the button texture (not the dropdown arrow) or maybe only make it thiner/shorter? I dont know about the hide part the dropdown menu but I tryed to resize it by myself with UIDropDownMenu_SetWidth(frame, width, padding) but don't realy know what i have to put into it so it works...

Hm wowhead has maps/names in all languages...

Anyway, to answer your questions about my subzone project - I will be making it draw on the normal map but I haven't yet decided what it will look like, you're welcome to offer any suggestions. It definitely won't look like the northrend screenshot, they will only display on (basically) the smallest map they appear on.

Thanks your other project looks awsome (are you planing to hide subzonesnames on the overview map or mybe show the bignames on top?) And will the names translate automatic?


To foglight update:

1. is it possible to remove the texture of the fog button? so it only shows the fog text as clickable button?

2. The "All Terain" Button is hard to hit if I use mMap. The button is only hitable on the very top because its overlaying the map.

3. Its not a big deal but if you close the map while options are open the options are still there next time you open it (but they'll fade then)

4. Woudn't it be cooler with a dropdown (drop upwards) menu?

5. the Player arrow is faded out in the "All Terain" view

Anything new about options?

Hopefully, I just wanted to get a fix out quickly since it wasn't working right.

If you notice any other issues or have a suggestion just let me know!

Deepholm is not the only map with garbage textures in areas that players aren't meant to get to. Unfortunately I don't particularly want to manually blacklist every map like that, but I don't think there's a better solution.

I think its a cool thing but I have to be honest - I won't use it I don't think its very usefull.
Also maybe too much for foglight - maybe as extra addon/plugin

btw map of Deepholm looks weird. maybe disable sat map here too

Alright, I figured out why microdungeons are misbehaving and have that fixed but I want to put off uploading an update until I get the options finished. I haven't decided how to do that quite yet.

Actually here's a paste of the lua file if you just want a quick fix.

Because it looks soooo cool
No I just like to use the satmap everywhere but sometimes I woud need names of small citys and other places that are not seen at the sat map so an button to show the normal with satmap around woud be cool

I need to provide some sort of interface to let you pick the color and alpha of the overlays.
