MetaMap  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 20100-2
by: MetaHawk [More]
DESCRIPTION:
============
MetaMap adds features to the WoW world map, keeping all mapping type features in a single place.
Some features are:

Adjust the map window size.
Move the map anywhere on the screen.
Adjust the opacity of the window & maps.
Saved sets for toggling between 2 map modes.
Allows full player movement, messaging, etc. with map open.
Adds coords to the main map and the Minimap
Adds Instance maps which open to the correct instance you enter.
Default data included for all bosses & locations etc.
User editable notes for all maps, including instance maps.
NPC/Mob database collectable by mouseover or keypress.
Toggling on/off display of unexplored areas of the map.
Boss Loot Tables displays all the loot dropped by bosses, and more.
Waypoint system to guide you to any set point.
Complete Quest logger with optional history database.
Tracker module for gathering Herbs/Ores etc.
NoteBook module for additional notes, linked to Tooltips.
Inbuilt Import and export facilities for various data formats.
Inbuilt Backup and Restore facilities.
Button on Minimap to open or close the World Map or display MetaMap options.
Key bindings for various MetaMap functions.
Full support for Titan Bar.

INSTALLATION:
=============
Extract ALL folders in the archive to the Interface\AddOns\ location. If you wish the Instance maps to be populated with default information, then on first installation you will need to select 'Extended Options' from the MetaMap menu.
Select the 'Database' tab, then click 'Load Imports'. This will enable the default import button, 'Import Instance Notes'. Click on the 'Import' button to import the data.


ISSUES/COMPATIBILITIES:
=======================
Some addons may reset the map to gather location data.
If your map continuously jumps back to your current location when selecting another map,
it will be due to another addon resetting it. In most cases the authors have made changes
to correct this so, download the latest version of any conflicting addon.

Added frame level adjust for TitanBar button. Works correctly again now.
MetaMapTRK now saves options seperately for each character.
...(Currently looking at changing the map routines, which is likely to take some time).
...(Thought i'd get these fixes out in the meantime).

Exclamation Sep 18 Update causing problems...

Hi,

As no one has posted yet.
The update on 18 Sep seems to be causing some problems with metamap

So far noted:
1. Map POIS (both custom, and ato, and including herbs, minerals, etc) not working or present
2. Error occuring when logging in
3. Map "button" moved from position on mimimap

I can't remember if theres a home page for MetaMap. If someone's knows it, please post.

A Newbie Question about POI's

I've noticed that when I enter a new region a number of POI's are automatically loaded onto my Worldmap, followed by a notification in he General Chat area, like this:
"<MetaMap>: MetaMapPOI updated mapnotes for Azshara"

When I mouse-over one of the mapnotes, a typical text would be:
"Bloodvenom Post - Created by MetaMapPOI"

Where are the data to those POI's located?
Can I add to them?
Can I change the icons (type of icon? colour of icon?)
If I want to transfer them to another PC, which files should I copy?

Yours sincerely

DaneNordic

my wish list

A really nice AddOn!

I would love to see an addition to it. That being, I'd love to have it record the region, sub-region & coords when you accept a quest. (for example: Ashenvale, Astranaar, 45,32). There have been many times when I had to take something back to the questgiver & couldn't remember who & where he/she/it was.

I would also love to see some documentation for this puppy. I've seen posts that seem to indicate that there are some slash "/" commands, but can't find a list of them & their definitions.

I would also love to know what the heck each of those modules does. The acronyms used mean nothing to me. (What are MetaMapBKP, BLT, BWP, CVT, EXP, FWM, NBK, QST, TRK, WKB? I think the BKP might be backup & HLP is probably help.)

There's no indication if they need commands to activate once they are turned on in the Options or what commands there are.

Again, really nice addon


Edit:
OK! Found a reference to some helps stashed way back on the last help tab.
They included a list describing what BKP, BLT, BWP, CVT, EXP, FWM, NBK, QST, TRK, WKB mean. Cool.

Even found the slash commands there.

I'd still love to know where it saves its data (so I can copy the files for backups occasionally).

2 Accounts only 1 has Metamap Icon

I have 2 WOW accounts on the same PC. I have Metamap installed correctly.

However, one of my accounts can no longer access Metamap. I was changing some of the settings and the map is now no longer on the one account.

I can't figure out how to reaccess Metamap since the small icon is no longer on the screen.

can someone please help?

Alternate display locations for the alternate displays?

Currently, I use alphamap as an always-on mid-sized map i the lower left corner with a high transparency, and metamap as my primary display map with low transparency and much larger size. Alphamap doesn't show my map notes, or really any of the metamap niftyness.

What I would most like to do is use metamaps dual display modes instead of alphamap with metamap. The problem is that when switching metamap modes, the two different displays do not retain their own separate location information, and when in a smaller mode, the metamap player location arrow icon is too small (alphamap has an enlarged one.)

Are there any functions within metamap that allow these two features (enlarged player icon option for one of the map displays, and individual location memory for each of them?) Or is this something that can be added?

http://www-en.curse-gaming.com/downloads/details/6386/
can you please look into it and fix it. After I looked once into the map I can't right clic on my char frame or on my target anymore. I disabled everything and it looks like metamap interfere with questareas. Cartographer or the blizzard map are working fine with questareas. Thanks for your help.

I have been using this addon for the last year, and prefer it over any other map addons I have come across.

I was wondering though if it was possible to have a lite version of MetaMap? Something with the notes portion and mob marking only, no other databases or files involved.

Just curious, as it never hurts to ask.
