About Atlas

Atlas is an addon for World of Warcraft that includes detailed maps for every instance in the game. Originally, Blizzard neglected to include maps for instances. However, after a number of years Blizzard began to include official maps for some instances. These official maps are in the same hand-drawn style as the built-in world maps. Conversely, the Atlas maps are based on data used by the minimap, which provides a more detailed, accurate, and colorful representation. You can think of this as the difference between a street map and a satellite image.

The core of Atlas is basically an image viewer. However, it's the images that come with Atlas that make it worthwhile - a map for every instance in the game. Furthermore, while the built-in maps mark the locations of some major bosses, Atlas provides detailed and accurate information about all of the creatures, NPCs, objects, and events you'll encounter in each dungeon. General information about each zone is provided as well, including its location, level range, player limit, attenuation requirement, and associated faction. All entrances, exits, portals, and connections are labelled clearly. Because there are so many instances in the game, you can categorize them by type, level, number of players, continent, or expansion.

With Atlas installed and enabled, you will be able to view the instance maps every where, even you are not inside the instance.

After installing Atlas, you'll notice a new icon on the minimap that looks like part of a little globe (you can right-click the icon to drag it around the minimap's frame). Click this icon to open up the main Atlas window, which displays the maps and legend. You can alternatively use the slash-command "/atlas". The drop-downs at the top of the window enable you to navigate between the maps. You can also drag the Atlas window around the screen. Lock it in place with the little lock button in the upper-right corner.

At the bottom of the legend is a small text-entry field as well as Search and Reset buttons. Type part of a word or name in the box and click the Search button, and the legend's entries are reduced to only those that match your text. Note that the search is performed only on the entries for the current map, not all the entries in the database. While not so useful for instances with only a few entries like Ragefire Chasm, the search comes in handy when there are a ton of entries, like for Blackrock Depths or the AtlasMajorCities plug-in. If you want to get the whole list back, just click Reset.

Atlas also includes maps of scenarios, battlegrounds, dungeon locations, flight points, and outdoor raid bosses.


Before Installing
  • Any previous versions of Atlas including Atlas' built-in plugins must be deleted prior to installation.
  • Atlas plugins (AtlasLoot, AtlasQuest, etc.) designed for any version of Atlas prior to this one may need to be deleted as they may not be compatible.


How to Install

Configuration

Atlas has a few simple options, accessible from the Options button in the upper-right corner of the main window, or with the slash-command /atlas options. A few of the settings aren't very self-explanatory so here's some more information about them.
  • "Auto-Select Instance Map" detects the instance that you're in when you open Atlas, and then automatically switches to the appropriate map. This feature doesn't work in instances that have more than one map, like Blackrock Spire, Dire Maul, or many of the Outland instances. In this case, Atlas remembers the last map you had open.
  • "Right-Click for World Map" makes the World Map open when you right-click anywhere on the Atlas window. This is useful when you want to quickly switch from Atlas to the World Map.
  • "Clamp Window to Screen" makes it so that you can't drag the Atlas window off the edge of the screen. The rest of the options are pretty straightforward. The Reset Position button is useful if the Atlas window ever gets dragged completely off-screen and you can't get it back.


Modules and Plugins

Due to the total size of our addon is increasing bigger and bigger since we are having more and more maps, we have heard many users complaining about the download issue, and suggested us to find some workaround.
We have discussed internally our final decision is to separate our built-in plugins into individual addon packages (also individual addon projects).

Also, we have moved out the old dungeon maps and re-categorized them based on the expansion set. For example, Burning Crusade dungeon maps are now only available in another addon package.

This provide the flexibility of addon downloading. Users who don't need any specific plugin or expansion dungeon maps can decide not to download them. Or, those plugins and old dungeon maps won't get frequently updated, therefore, users who have download all the Atlas addon packages don't need to download all the packages each time when there is a new release.

Links to All Addon Packages

3rd Parties Atlas Plugins

Atlas has a built-in plugin system allowing for the easy addition of map packs. In fact, Atlas ships with four of these plugins (for battlegrounds, dungeon locations, flight points, and outdoor raid bosses). If you're interested in making your own Atlas map pack, I suggest you start with one of these four as a guide. You can contact me or post on the Atlas forums if you need help, however I suggest you do as much research as possible beforehand. Furthermore, there are several Atlas plugins that do more than simply provide additional maps.
  • AtlasLoot provides a loot table for each boss
  • AtlasQuest displays the quests associated with each instance.
  • AtlasMajorCities displays each major cities and all the NPCs, merchants, vendors, trainers info.
  • Atlas World Events - provide maps and quests information for WoW World Events. Maintained by Arith, not part of Atlas team's work.
  • Atlas Arenas - provide arenas maps. Maintained by Arith, not part of Atlas team's work.

I don't understand, why are people getting so worked up about Atlas not being updated? For one, it was said that he was having real life issues at the moment, and may be having that right now. But second, and this might also be the reason, there is an alternative to the Icecrown Citadel map, known as Atlas 3.3! There's also Atlas ICC, which also helps.



By the way, my friend thought of the banana.

HOORAY! May Atlas be with you... always.

This is awesome.... I was looking at the Atlas forums, and I found that the reason a new map hasn't been released is because they think that everyone knows the instance layout anyways... if that's true, then Atlas isn't dead!



YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey guys got some said news...

"Due to medical and personal reasons, I'm no longer going to be able to maintain or work on Atlas. I want to personally thank the many people who have tirelessly participated in Atlas development by providing data, suggestions, help, and support. This project couldn't have been possible without you. As you may already know, Atlas is an open-source project, so perhaps it can live on under new leadership. If anyone is interested in continuing Atlas development, feel free to contact me and I'll give you as much assistance as I'm able to. I can also provide access to resources, as well as moderation privileges for various Atlas sites, including the forum. I wish everyone the best of luck. Be well and take care.

Sincerely,
Dan"

I might be picking this up, technically.

I might be picking this up technically, as I want to use it in WoWMap. I want to ask Dan Gilbert's permission first anyways. just to be safe. It will be combined with Cartographer, but you can turn Cartographer off if you wish. Please support my idea! I know it's a good one! =D

Hey guys and girls.

First and foremost if you have not yet hear Dan Gilbert has stepped down as developer of Atlas due to personal and medical reasons i would personally like to thank Dan for all the time he has spent in developing one of the most, if not THE most, used World of Wacraft addon in the world.

What does this mean for Atlas?

Well if you think its going to be abandoned you are dead wrong, I have decided to take on the task of maintaining Atlas in its current form unfortunately due to my limited coding knowledge i will be unable to do all the crazy stuff that Dan wanted to do (trust me there were some wicked awesome ideas).

Just to let you all know now i have already got the Ruby Sanctum map added to Atlas i am just waiting on final translations and a "polished" map and Atlas will be ready for release to the general public.

In regards to the future of Atlas, i am keeping my fingers crossed that i can get a beta key for World of Warcrafts next expansion Cataclysm I'm hoping that nothing major changes so that Atlas can continue to work, if something major does change then I will do my best to get Atlas working in Cataclysm.

Thank you.

Lothaer.

It's sad that Dan has had to step down for these reasons and I hope he's okay. But it's wonderful that you have risen to the challenge of keeping this beast alive. Good luck with it in the future and I hope it continues to proliferate and stay amongst 'The Greats' of the addon world.

Also, is there a way to make it so that when I press M for the world map inside an instance, Atlas will open instead, a la Cartographer? I understand that you might not know the answer to this, though.
