MapNotes  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v5.16.30200
by: Cortello, Telic
v5.16.30200




Sorry peeps, but I'm effectively retired.

I have removed the PayPal buttons from WoWInterface, which makes it easy to do - and I am TRYING to remove them from Curse & WoWUI also, which seems to be a lot trickier.

I may come back to WoW some time next year - but probably not...

If anyone wants to take over development then you can e-mail me at the contact e-mail below, and I will cooperate as needed.

Sorry, and thanks for all your support over the years.

***********
Description
***********

Adds a note system to the WorldMap helping you keep track of interesting locations.
MapNotes(Fan's Update) also provides a Plugin interface for other AddOns to take advantage of the note making ability. AlphaMap(Fans Update) uses this interface to allow Note creation on AlphaMap Maps of Instances, BattleGrounds, and World Boss Maps. This version of MapNotes comes with in-built support for creation of notes on Atlas maps, also using this Plugin interface.
For these purpose MapNotes offers the following main functions:
1. Marking notes on the WorldMap
2. Showing one of these notes on the MiniMap (see MiniNote)
3. Allows any other AddOn to use MapNotes note creation ability to mark notes on frames within their own AddOn :
- Marking notes on AlphaMap (Fan's Update) Instance maps
- Marking notes on Atlas maps

"/tloc" can be used to toggle this AddOns minimap coordinates instead of Thottbott's minimap coordinates.
NOTE : PLEASE still use "/mn -tloc xx,yy" to place a Thottbott marker on the map. "/tloc" ONLY toggles Minimap Coordinates.

Should be compatible with both Cartographer, although you may no longer be able to create notes on the map with the in-built functionality provided by that AddOn - only with the functionality provided by MapNotes (Fan's Update).

********
Features
********

[Slash Commands] - NOTE : See separate file "LegacySlashCommands.txt" for old style commands
================

/mapnote OR /mapnotes OR /mn
Use without any other parameters to see which version of MapNotes is installed, and access the list of available Slash Commands.

Otherwise can be used to insert a Map Note by a slash command (which you can create in the Send Menu), for example, to put a note at the Entrance of Stormwind City on the map Elwynn Forest:

"/mapnote k<WM Elwynn> x<0.320701> y<0.491480> t<Stormwind> i1<Entrance> i2<> cr<ciphersimian> i<0> tf<0> i1f<0> i2f<0>"

NOTE: The above would all be on one line Description of the identifiers:

k<#> - Key based on the map name from GetMapInfo() prefixed by "WM " (English name on all clients - never localised) Varies for other AddOns using the Plugin functionality
x<#> - X coordinate, based on the GetPlayerMapPosition() function
y<#> - Y coordinate, based on the GetPlayerMapPosition() function
t<text> - Title for the MapNote
i1<text> - first line of text displayed under the Title in the MapNote (Info 1)
i2<text> - second line of text displayed under the Title in the MapNote (Info 2)
cr<text> - Creator of the MapNote
i<#> - icon to use for the MapNote, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga
tf<#> - color of the Title, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Color#.tga
i1f<#> - color of the Info 1 line (colors as above)
i1f<#> - color of the Info 2 line (colors as above)
mn<1> - (optional) If included, then a value of 1 will set the note as a mininote also. Any other value and the note will NOT be set as a mininote.



/mn -allow OR /mn -a
Allows you to receive the next note, even if you have disabled receiving in the options. If invoked with no parameters, it will toggle the current state.


/mn -automini
Shows the next note created (using any method) as a MiniNote and also puts it on the WorldMap. If invoked with no parameters, it will toggle the current state.


/mn -allmini
Toggle all MapNotes off/on as Mininotes
(Keybinding also available)


/mn -nextmini
Shows the next note created (using any method) as a MiniNote and also puts it on the WorldMap. If invoked with no parameters, it will toggle the current state.


/mn -minionly
Like the previous command, but doesn't put the note on the WorldMap.


/mn -minioff
Turns the MiniNote off.


/mn -tloc tbX,tbY
Sets a "Thottbot location" on the map. Use it with no arguments to toggle it off.
See the Section on Formatting of X,Y Coordinates


/mn -q [icon] [name]
Adds a note at your current location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga)
If no [name] is passed, then the Note will be named based on the MiniMap Text, and the second/third lines will be populated with more zone information and/or the default QuickNote text.


/mn -qtloc xx,yy [icon] [name]
See the Section on Formatting of X,Y Coordinates
Adds a note on the map you are currently on at the given thottbot location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga)


NEW SLASH COMMANDS IN MapNotes(Fan's Update)

/mn -s [search text]
If you want to search for a note, to see if one exists, or where it is, then you can use this command, and MapNotes will print out a report in the chat window, displaying the names of all maps which have a note containing that text


/mn -hl [note name]
If you have lots of notes and want to clearly identify a single one on a map, or if you want a certain note to remain highlighted, then use this command and they will be displayed with a green circle around them.
If there are several notes with that name or containing that text, then they will ALL be highlighted.
The note name does not have to be case sensitive, and doesn't have to be an exact match - all notes containing the [note name] text will be highlighted.
If the EXACT NAME is specified (not case-sensitive), the note will also be marked as a MiniNote on the Minimap


/mn -mapc
Toggle the display of Player and Cursor Coordinates on the World Map
Control-Left-Click and drag the coordinates to move them to a different position on the World Map if you are not happy with the default.


/mn -minic
Toggle the display of Player coordinates below the Minimap.


/mn -t [icon] [name]
Creates a quicknote at the Player's current location if the Player has no target.
If the Player does have a target, then it will create a note for that target at the Player's current location, icon and name are optional (icon any number from 0 to 9, AddOns/MapNotes/POIIcons/Icon#.tga)


/mn -m
Creates a note for the Player's target at the Player's current location.
OR Merges the details for the Player's current target in to a Map Note that has already been created at the Player's current location.
MUST have targetted a Player/NPC/Mob for this to work.


/mn -scale [0.5 - 1.5]
The size of MapNotes Menus and Frames are now fixed no matter what the scale of the World Map or other AddOn Map being used.
This command can be used to change the default size of MapNotes Menus and Frames if the user finds it too small or large.
The default value is 0.7
Therefore "/mn -scale 1.0" will make the Menus and Frames appear larger than they do by default.


/mn -undelete
Will undelete the last deleted MapNote.



IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE IMPORT FUNCTIONS BELOW
All of the functions below are mainly designed for people who have just installed MapNotes (Fan's Update). If you have been using this version of MapNotes for some time already, and have your own notes, then these functions may overwrite your existing notes. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.


/script MapNotes_ImportCarto()
NOTE: only works with English localisation currently
If you want to move from Cartographer 2 to MapNotes, then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, ust the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported.


/MapNotes_Import_MetaMap
If you want to move from MetaMapNotes to MapNotes, then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, use the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported.


/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMap
If you have AlphaMap installed, and want to convert the in-built Instance and World Boss notes in to MapNotes notes, then use the above command, and you will see a message in the chat window informing you of how many notes have been imported in to MapNotes.
This does NOT import Battleground notes by default, as AlphaMap's in built Battleground functionality works best without MapNotes overlaying the BG Objectives.
NOTE: You don't have to import notes from AlphaMap, to make MapNotes on AlphaMap Instance/Battleground/WorldBoss maps. You can create any notes you like manually.


/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMapBG
As mentioned above, the basic "/MapNotes_Import_AlphaMap" command does not import Battleground notes by default. If you do want to import AlphaMap Battlegournd map notes, then use this command to do so.


/MapNotes_Import_CTMapMod
If you want to move from using CTMapMod to MapNotes (Fan's Update), then log in to the game with both AddOns enabled, use the above command, after which you will receive notification in the chat window on how many notes have been imported; Then log out, and disable CTMapMod.




[Key Bindings]
==============

QuickNote/TargetNote
--------------------
Creates a quicknote at the Player's current location if the Player has no target.
If the Player does have a target, then it will create a note for that target at the Player's current location.
-OR CLICK MINIMAP COORDINATES-
If you are NOT targetting anything, then ALT-Left-Click on the Minimap Coordinates to create a QuickNote.
If you are targetting something, then ALT-Left-Click to create a Target note with details about the current target at the PLAYER'S current location - you will be warned if you are too near to an existing note to create a new note.
(Slash Command "/mn -t" also available)

TargetNote/MergeNote
--------------------
Creates a note for the Player's target at the Player's current location.
OR Merges the details for the Player's current target in to a Map Note that has already been created at the Player's current location.
MUST have targetted a Player/NPC/Mob for this to work.
-OR CLICK MINIMAP COORDINATES-
If you are targetting something, then you may also ALT-Right-Click on the Minimap Coordinates if you wish to create a note for your Target at the PLAYER'S current location. However, if a MapNote already exists at Player's location, then the details will be merged with the existing note.
(Slash Command "/mn -m" also available)




[Fast Note Creation/Editing/Deleting]
=====================================

- <Control>+<Alt>+Right-click on a MAP/FRAME to create a Quicknote at that point

- <Control>+<Alt>+Right-click on a NOTE to quickly go to the note Editing Frame

- <Control>+<Alt>+Left-clicking to drag NOTES to new positions

- <Alt>+Right-click on a NOTE to toggle it as a Minimap note

- <Alt>+<Shift>+DOUBLE Right-click on a note to quickly delete it.

- <Control>+<Shift>+Right-click will create a temporary blue Group note on a map
If created on a World map, then it will also be displayed in the Minimap for you to track
If in a Raid group, then the note will be shared with other Raid members who have MapNotes installed
Otherwise, if in a Party, then the note will be shared with the Party members who have MapNotes installed
Otherwise, its just your own quick temporary marker

Re: waypoint/ arrow not working

Which version of Cartographer are you using?

Sorry, but I'm really not sure what the following means :
...and "permaenabled" by a yellow hook...


p.s. now I'm supposed to write an Export feature too
Jeez, how about the authors of those mods do some share of the work and write their own Import features



Originally posted by coldsun
When i use mapnotes in conjunction with cartographer (and TomTom), the Option to set a waypoint/arrow for a note is greyed out and "permaenabled" by a yellow hook - but there is no arrow for that note.

Same happens with only Cartographer loaded.

Id really like to use mapnotes since i can import stuff from metamap and cartographer. But its useless if i cant set waypoint arrows on notes.

Tried the latest version 5.14.3000

thx in adance

p.s a notes EXport to metamap/cartographer would be cool too, so its not a one-way decision what note addon a player uses.

Oh, and i have been looking for something that inserts the level of the area/instance by the name like cartographer used to do. I am happy that there are instance pins in the map tho! lol

Try searching around for Ciphersimian's latest version of WoWKb - it should be working with MapNotes

Re: slash command error

lol,

Thanks for the extra info Dridzt - someone else pointed out that there was an error, but didn't say what it was

Perhaps I should say that I still don't have a PC to test with, and this release was finally retrieved from WoWInterface's SVN on Saturday (with no help from site staff I might add )

I released it cos it had an important fix for legacy slash commands that I remember working but I guess I left a debug message in


Sorry folks, I'll fix that asap,

Telic,


P.S. for those who are intereseted (probably zero) I'm currently working on a 10 year old Dell laptop running Windows Me, and replaying the original Thief game

Previous version works ok.

Edit: most slash commands I tried error similarly.

Edit2: Guessing that it only errors for people that don't happen to have NotesUNeed too?

@daggerz

Hi,

I'll have a look at the tomtom arrow error - should be fixable.

As for the note filtering by creator options, they were there in the original AddOn when I took over development, roughly 3 years ago, so this 'issue' has been around since then too

I guess its a question of how best to treat blank creators - notes that should be filtered, or notes that should always appear valid no matter what the creator filtering...
Perhaps the original author thought that people would not be interested in both types of options - either they would blank the creator and not be interested in creator filtering, or they would like the filtering and always leave the creator to default in...

To be fair, it is behaving as you might expect - a blanked creator is basically a way of flagging 'not created by me'...

It would be as simple for me to make blank creators always appear as valid notes to be displayed as it would to stop editing of the creator field...

I'll have a ponder.

Couple of things to check however -

There are 2 checkboxes on the MapNotes Options frame to do with displaying notes created by the player / displaying notes created by other players - I'd make sure to see if you are filtering some notes ?

It's possible that these options are set OK for you, but are behaving oddly when the creator is left blank.... so let me know.

Thanks,

Telic,
Yea I was filtering the showing of notes by other characters and by removing the creator, it treated as another character had made it. So once I removed the filtering of that, my old note I made showed up. I'd almost say to not make the creator optional and make it default to the current character making it and have it where it can't be changed by someone. I say this cause what's the idea behind having it be optional when if we remove it, it treats it like someone else made it? Anyway, just my 2 cents, love the addon and thanks for all the hard work you put into it.

Sorry to hear about your PC, that sucks. Hope you get things back up and running, not having a PC really blows. However, I had a question that hopefully someone can answer, why is it that when I go to create a note and if I take out the Creator which it says is optional, the note is never created? If I do leave in the creator though, the note is created.

My Computer has died...

My Computer has died...


Hi all,

sadly my computer has died, so I won't be able to release any fixes or updates any time soon.

There are new versions of MapNotes (Fan's Update) and AlphaMap (Fan's Update) on the SVN at WoWInterface.com but I can't access or promote them myself. I have asked a couple of site administrators there if they can help so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

The AlphaMap update includes all the WotLK Instance maps, plus new dungeon location markers on the world maps and the ability to zoom between them via Alt-Clicking.

The MapNotes update includes a fix for users of legacy slash commands plus a data fix for affected notes :

/script MN_IntegrityCheck()


So please check the following sites :

http://www.wowinterface.com/download...ansUpdate.html

http://www.wowinterface.com/download...ansUpdate.html


If they have not been updated, please feel free to post a comment asking the site to help release them

Or add a forum post maybe


It could take some weeks for insurance to come through before I can get a new PC, so this is the ONLY route to getting the latest updates any time soon.


Thanks for your support,


Telic
