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.
2.5 - 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.

Think had problems with aurora too because it had buttons above the dropdown menu so try to move it or use a better map addon e.g. monomap :P

Ah thanks, I'll take another look. It might be incompatibility with ElvUI map that I'm using.
Edit: I see now 3 dashes not 2, UltraEdit confused me, it colors that whole block as a comment, sorry for the false alarm.

Re: v2.5 error

No errors with the dropdown menu for me addon is working fine since month and I change the mode very often.

However the green textures that I have to "use" tease me and I don't know how to disable the map switching function of capping...

That causes errors on load. I commented out the 2 offending lines in my local copy without any side effects.

It also appears that the only way to set the mode atm is through /run FoglightMode = x

Re: Re: Re: Bug

I found out that Capping is the addon that switches the map - I never noticed that lol why shoud THIS addon do this

So I tryed this out a bit and the change realy solved the problem no more squares but as you said at some zones there are green textures - its always the same part of the map in same zones so maybe its somehow possible to fix it?

My idea woud be to use the save loading methode in this zones where we have green icons:
Klimador:
Durotar, Silitius, Winterspring,Tedrassil, AQ, Stonetalon Mountains, Ferales, Dustwallow
East:
Quel'Danas, Eversong Woods, Abyssal Depths, Twilight Highlands, Blasted Lands, The Cape of Stranglethorn
BC:
Netherstorm

In all other zones are NO green textures so it coud load with the other mothode.

Woud that be possible?

Just don't feel pushed to do this now only if you have time for it I can also live with it how it is now was just an idea

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
