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

I like it, very nice idea (especially with the upcoming "achievements" in Wrath for exploring all of the map). My only complaint is that it doesn't work with Cartographer. It loads its little frame correctly, but it doesn't seem to be able to read the map.

Oh okay, I will look into it - do you have the map revealing features of cartographer enabled? That's the first thing which comes to my mind and could interfere with cargExplorer.
Yeah, the achievements-system inspired me also to work this addon out

edit: yes, it's a problem in connection with Cartographer's map revealing function Foglight - when you deactivate it, it should work. But it's only a temporary solution, I will try to fix it.

This also seems to be incompatable with mozzfullworldmap for the same reasons. I would love it if I could run both.

Did you write a wrong number in the data file?

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

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:

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!

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.

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

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! )

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%?
