PocketPlot  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.0.1
by: Seerah [More]

See the Change Log tab for a list of all changes and updates.

PocketPlot 3.0!

PocketPlot has gone through a much needed, and long-awaited, rewrite! See the change log tab for a list of all changes in 3.0, including why I removed custom blip textures.


Features:
  • different shapes for your minimap (now 25!)
  • thin, black border (customizable color/alpha/thickness)
  • border and clock/coords have options to be colored by class
  • optional support for !ClassColors
  • moved and streamlined mail/bg/voice/LFG icons
  • moved zone text
  • option to hide zone text
  • 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)
  • can change the alpha/transparency of the minimap
  • option to hide the minimap in combat and/or pet battles
  • each character has a choice of using either a global or character specific profile


Looking for something to move the quest tracker? Check out Who Framed Watcher Wabbit?


FAQ:

Is there a slash command?
/pocketplot and /pp

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.

v.2.15

- updated for MoP

So not a biggie if you decide not to do it.
Yeah, it's just that I have a whole function dedicated to the placement of the clock/coords depending on what is enabled.

Cool beans.
Thanks.
This isn't a game breaker so waiting until 5.0 is fine.

OK....2 things....
I'd also like to justify the clock, coords, and time other than centered.


I saw in a previous post that someone wanted to move the Tracking button.
Could that be put on the "mover" pull-down?
Or is that a totally different beast altogether?


Thanks for the work you do on this addon.
I can add in an offset. It will likely be in the 5.0 version. I will think about movement for buttons, but right now all 5 minimap buttons are laid out in certain spots along the bottom of the minimap. But putting in more justification presets for the clock/coords is going to be a pain in the butt, so probably not that.

That's where the LFD (iirc) icon goes. If you want to move any of those, you'll need to do so in PocketPlot.lua.

Are the icons in this version of PocketPlot larger than the original version's icons were when it comes to nodes on the minimap? Or if they aren't by default, is there a way to make them larger?

I would love to continue with PocketPlot, but with my vision slowly getting worse, it is becoming impossible to use it for farming without either larger icons, or at least a way to make them larger.

Thanks in advance for answering this question.
I'm curious as to your choice of a "thumbs down" icon for your post topic, but... Listed in the features on the description page is this:
custom minimap blip textures to choose from
Yes, there are one or two which have the icons slightly larger. I can't make them any larger than that. Have you tried scaling the map larger? I forget if version 1.x had that feature, but 2.x does. I can't support versions that are over 3 years old, though.

I'm pretty sure that it worked for me the other day. I logged into my bank toon after the patch and her robe was at 0 durability for some reason. The durability man was showing, and I thought it showed the chest as being red. Disable all other addons but PocketPlot and try again.

Yep, I have a fix for the LFGSearchStatus, but was fixing up the blip textures before uploading. (Blizz added enough new textures that now the blips require a larger texture size, changing all the texture coordinates and requiring new textures.) Will be up sometime tonight.

Great Simple Addon - one Feature Request

Would love to be able to move the coords and clock onto the map bottom. Maybe you can put in a Y slider that adds the option of positioning these items to overlay the map instead of outside the map above and below? Great mod.

Thanks for such an awesome addon, it's the best I've found so far that has everything I want in a minimap without having to configure through a lua file and that's still up to date.

Also agreed, a way to move the zone text and clock/coords would be lovely.

I've thought of it... But never really felt the need to add it. It's occasionally in the back of my mind, though. I'll consider adding an option to have it above the map if clock/coords are at the bottom.

Originally posted by sakurakira
Also, was it the moving of the quest tracker that was causing the bugs? I noticed that specific one is gone in the newest version.
I'm not sure what bugs you are referring to. The two noted as fixed in the changelog? PocketPlot hasn't touched the WatchFrame since Blizzard added the movable quest tracker in patch 3.1. When Blizzard further tweaked the quest tracker to its current incarnation, I created Who Framed Watcher Wabbit? to handle it, which is linked on the description page of PocketPlot.
