PocketPlot  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.15
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.

That's a default UI feature - you've been invited to an event on the calendar.

Unless you want to edit the texture yourself, it's all or nothing.

You'll need blp2png.exe (you can get it from this site), open up the image for editing in photoshop or another program, edit the !, save it, and convert it back into a blp file. (TGA should work for minimap blips, too, if you prefer to use that format over blp)

I really like this addon, but I really really really dislike the icon for the "!" quest givers... Is there anyway for me to change just that one icon? I prefer the fatter/more standard "!" icon. I love all the other new icons - just not that ! one.

Thanks,
vpr

Thanks for the quick response, well if there is no way to change it i will live with it. Thanks again.

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be optional at the moment. If you don't have ClassColors installed you get this error and the addon fails to load:

Since I upgraded to the latest release of PocketPlot, it doesn't work in-game, even though definitely enabled. /pp doesn't bring up anything either. I get the default Blizz map.

I've added optional support for the new !ClassColors addon in this version. Any changes in the !ClassColors config require you to reload your UI in order for them to take place in PocketPlot.

Please note that there is a little tiny bug in version 2.0.9.0-beta-2 of !ClassColors, where Phanx forgot a } at line 264.

If you download that version and get the error, then change:
Code:
	setmetatable(CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS, { __index = function(t, k)
		if k == "IterateClasses" then return IterateClasses end
		if k == "RegisterCallback" then return RegisterCallback end
		if k == "UnregisterCallback" then return UnregisterCallback end
	end)
to
Code:
	setmetatable(CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS, { __index = function(t, k)
		if k == "IterateClasses" then return IterateClasses end
		if k == "RegisterCallback" then return RegisterCallback end
		if k == "UnregisterCallback" then return UnregisterCallback end
	end})
(note the } after the word "end")

Though I'm certain this will be fixed in the next version.

Profile support is something that I may add to my addons in the future... For now, you can go into the PocketPlot.toc file and change
Code:
## SavedVariables: PocketPlotDB
to
Code:
## SavedVariablesPerCharacter: PocketPlotDB
Copying the sv file from the account-wide sv folder to the character specific sv folder should allow you to keep any changes you already made.
