PocketPlot  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.16
by: Seerah [More]

**This version is for 5.0.4+

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

PocketPlot 2.0!

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.


Features:
  • different shapes for your minimap
  • 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
  • SharedMedia support for fonts
  • scroll with mousewheel
  • hides map button, zoom in/out, 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 **new: 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

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.

Yeah, that SetHeight bit is why I was holding off on finishing my fix. I wanted to find a way to do it that fit my needs/desires.

While waiting for my rested xp to build back up, I started working on an addon for the WatchFrame the other day. I finally hit 80 yesterday, so I'll be brushing that off this week.

As an FYI to others who have also gone through hell trying to find something in-game to move (not modify) the quest tracker, the WatchFrame mover in PocketPlot still works correctly...it just needs to be un-commented.

Line #44 in pocketplot.lua comes like this:

Code:
--					"WatchFrame",
Just remove the two dashes that start that line to un-comment it.

Wish I'd thought of this before spending the better part of a day working on a separate mover that I didn't like very much.

**EDIT** Bah, spoke too soon...it moves the frame, but it's a bit buggy with the quests appearing in it. I'm looking into it. Looks like it has to do with the frame size...

**EDIT #2** Ok, after a couple of hours of testing I've got a functional (if inelegant) solution.

1. Uncomment line #44.

2. Replace line #23 with this (honestly no idea what the hell this does, but it caused Kong to throw weird comparing-with-nil errors until I rolled with it):
Code:
PP_oldMinimap, PP_oldDurabilityFrame, PP_oldWatchFrame, PP_oldVehicleSeatIndicator = nil
3. Add this *somewhere* (I picked a location at random where it'd be easy for me to find, at line #862-863, for the reasons stated. Probably doesn't matter where it goes...):
Code:
--I put this here as a random arbitrary location for this inelegant yet functional hack.
WatchFrame:SetHeight(500)
The 500px frame height for the tracker was just a number I shoved in there as a "well, this'll work I guess" number (it's a bit over half the height of my screen).

Sorry for my constant habit of hacking PocketPlot to suit my random whims, Seerah. Hope you don't mind...I'm just too much of a fan of this addon to go to anything else. If it could take care of my kids, I'd marry it.

No. Is there a setting in Skinner to not skin the clock?

Any fix ?
I have the minimap at the very bottom of my screen, and that same tooltip is covered for me since it is below the plane of the screen. I don't know that there's anything to be done about this through normal settings - pocketplot has no control over the tooltips minimap buttons produce - only the location of the buttons themselves.

You can however open up the .lua file and find the position for this icon (I think it must be accounted for, anyway). It's pretty clearly marked. Then you can adjust the X Y numbers until the icon is located in a logical spot for your particular layout.

I don't know, I don't use SexyMap and am not sure if it has a feature to change blips. You could put the blip texture in the SexyMap folder and then take the bit of code from pocketplot.lua that sets the blips and put it in one of the SexyMap files (changing file paths as necessary). Just remember that this would be for personal use only, and not for distribution in a UI.

For a more uniform look to the text, I added a shadow to the coordinates text since the location and clock text have a shadow:

Code:
--COORDINATES
	coords:SetFont(LSM:Fetch("font",db.lsmfont), db.coordSize, db.fontFlag)
	coords:SetShadowOffset(1, -1)
	coords:SetShadowColor(0, 0, 0, 1)
	if db.coords then
		coordframe:Show()
	else
		coordframe:Hide()
	end
Maybe something to consider for your next update.

The LFG tooltip popup when you click it seems to be designated to the bottom left of the minimap and doesn't adjust based on where the minimap is positioned. This makes placing the minimap in any corner but the Blizzard default unusable. If you could write some code to auto adjust its position based on which side of the screen the minimap is on, or set up some manual positioning for that frame, that would be awesome.

I also noticed there's a new flag icon which I assume is a dungeon difficulty display (showed up in a 5 man heroic and had a skull and '5' on it). I'm not sure if this is something you added or if this is Blizzard's doing but if you could add an option to KILL IT WITH FIRE that would be amazing!

Overall, I think I found my new minimap mod of choice, though. Excellent work.
The newest version can already move the little flag, and you could add LFDSearchStatus in the lua in order to move the said tooltip. Works great for me.

Thanks for a great addon ! !

I'm having a small issue with the mover for the minimap. When I enable the mover and try to nudge down the map shoots over to the upper left corner. I have to reset the position each time and can't move the map down.
