PocketPlot was originally written as a very lightweight minimap addon with option available only through the lua file. However, I felt like doing more with it and I took my hubby's feature requests and implemented them. Thus, PocketPlot 2.0 was born, with an in-game config screen and other new additions.
different shapes for your minimap (now 25!)
thin, black border (customizable color/alpha)
border and clock/coords have options to be colored by class (optional support for !ClassColors)
moved and streamlined tracking/mail/bg/voice/LFG icons
moved zone text
option to hide zone text
option to hide tracking button (use shift-right-click on minimap to open menu)
SharedMedia support for fonts
zoom with mousewheel
hides map button, zoom in/out buttons, etc.
moved and streamlined clock
option to disable the clock
coordinates display (click coords to toggle world map, shift-click to send coords to chat)
"smart" coords/clock display (change positions depending on what's shown), can show below or above minimap **now with offsets
ability to move other frames related to the minimap (durability, vehicle seat indicator, instance difficulty/guild flag)
can also move WorldStateAlwaysUpFrame (top-center of screen status display)
right-click the minimap to toggle showing the in-game calendar (default flashing ? still shows for new calendar invites)
custom minimap blip textures to choose from
can change the alpha/transparency of the minimap
option to hide the minimap in combat
clamp LFD tooltip to screen
each character has a choice of using either a global or character specific profile
How do I move the minimap or other frames?
In the PocketPlot config window, enable the mover for the frame you wish to reposition in the movers menu. Drag it wherever you wish. When finished, select "None" from the movers menu to get rid of the blue anchor. You can use the "Nudge" buttons to move a frame by one pixel at a time in any direction.
Where can I find more fonts?
For further font choices, I suggest the SharedMedia addon. Have a font you want to use that's not in there? Read the "Instructions for MyMedia.txt" file in the SharedMedia folder.
How can I move the tower capture bars?
I have opted to not support moving those, as it's a PITA to do so. I suggest the mods Capping or SSPVP3 for all of your pvp needs (including moving the capture bars and score frame).
How can I give feedback?
Feel free to leave your comments/questions here, but all bug reports and feature requests need to go to my portal if you want me to remember to do them.
Can I use your code/blips?
All use of my code and custom blips separate from PocketPlot must be for your own personal use and they may not be redistributed separate from the addon. You may use snippets of my code in addons you intend to distribute only after receiving permission, and credit must be given.
Can I redistribute your addons?
My addons may only be redistributed in UI compilations, and any mention of the addon must point to its download page or my portal, both on wowinterface.
Do you accept cookies?
I love cookies! Unfortunately, they may turn to crumbs in the mail. Instead, you may donate to my cookie fund via PayPal.
