cargExplorer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.1.6 r313
by: Cargor [More]
You are a world explorer who tries do get the achievement of the same name? Or you just want to reveal the whole map? Then this addon may helps you. cargExplorer displays a small info text next to the WorldMap-close button which gives the percentage of your discovered areas. If you don't have all parts of the selected map discovered, the 10 zones with the most missing parts are shown in the tooltip.

Based on Achievements
While previous versions counted the map overlays to fetch the data, WotLK versions get their information from the achievements-UI.
If you don't have the achievement for the selected zone, the tooltip will give you information on which zones / areas are missing.

Due to the changes, the now obsolete Auto-Scan button was removed and you don't need to click all zones manually - It just works!
It should work properly will all map modifying addons as well as map revealing ones.

It comes also with a LibDataBroker-1.0 data object, so that you can integrate it in your favourite LDB display addon.

Planned Features:
- Clicking on the text will open the appropriate achievements window

Cargor, you rock.

If you want to write me a function that grabs zone info from the beta I can run it and grab the info for you.

BTW, is this hosted on curse/wowace at all?

I don't have beta access at the moment, but I'm awaiting my key through WoWI's beta key geive-away.
As soon as I have access, I'll start exploring Northrend and updating my addon data

Afaik, an auto-scan button is impossible, because it would have to require to switch the map zone you're currently viewing (and I don't know any function that does this). But I will try to look around (:

EDIT: Okay, there seems to be a function that switches the currently viewed map - So, an auto-scan buttons seems possible and is now a planned feature.

EDIT 2: Auto-scan on clicking cargExplorer integrated.

Do you have beta access yet?

Would be nice to see integration with the exploration achievements.

What about an auto-scan button which will auto-scan everything instead of you having to do it manually.

So what does it mean if I have FogLight from cartographer shown to make unexplored areas dark red, and I go around exploring the whole area, until there is no red left

But cargexplorer says its only 96%?

Seems as if my char is missing another area - I'll check it.

EDIT: In the last time I've got a lot of problems with my internet connection (reconnecting every 3-10 minutes) - sorry, but an update probably comes only after I've solved the problems.

- The new update includes the missing map part in Bloodmyst Isle (My char got it now also! )

Testing this addon out I was able to get 100% explored for all zones except Bloodmyst Island. I have 104% of Bloodmyst explored.

I've implemented now a fix that should allow cargExplorer to work with most of the map revealing addons (including Mapster FogClear). If there are still problems, please post them.

Question could you add support for mapster

Mapster has a fog clear option also. If it is on then this shows 0, if it is off then you get a number. thanks!

1) Half of the western river (north west of the single mountain)
2) The underwater area in the north west (offshore of the north murloc camp)
3) east side of Wyrmscar Island

Here's my map:

That's a good question
There seems to be a wrong number in the data file, yes. I'll check it - maybe my char is missing an area, too.

edit: oh well, i have to admit that my char was missing the part with the two camps in the southeast - as soon as I've discovered it, I'll update the data. Never thought that releasing this addon would help me personally - thank you very much

Did you write a wrong number in the data file?
