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.

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.

Any chance of profile support? I typically place the map in different locations depending on the character and / or professions.

You could move the clock/coords to the top of the minimap.

cheers thanks
thats kinda what i figured
ive stuck with tidyminimap as a result, it only touches known map buttons
just covers up some of the stuff due to where its anchored, i spose i should just edit the lua and move the anchor lol

thanks again!

Sometimes those minimap-cleaner-upper mods just grab everything that's parented to the minimap. Did the frame that creates the border disappear, too? I'd talk to that addon's author. Sometimes those addons will have a blacklist.

was a big fan of the previous version but this one is very nice indeed

question though, i am currently using tidyminimap for my map buttons, i was thinking of switching to detached minibuttons, but when i activated that in game, a bunch of the items from the minimap were grabbed out and repositioned, im guessing thats part of dmb taking over the coords/locs for your minimap items?

not sure if its a "bug" or intended behavior for dmb or if its an interaction between the two

24-hour clock option?

May we have a toggle (be it by hand-edit of lua or Interface tab) for 12 or 24-hour format?

Re: Blips

Originally posted by strawberrie
hi, I was wondering if there is any way to change the blips for the minimap in the lua file. I noticed you have 3 files ending in .blp in the media folder and I tried changing it to a different one in the lua file, load up wow and it just didn't work. I get white squares.

thanks in advance.
From the main description (though I'm assuming this is what you tried):
  • custom minimap blip textures made by yours truly (two styles are included with PocketPlot. If you wish to change the blip texture or like the default blips better, you merely need to change the file path in the lua - the path to the default blips is there for you)

.blp is Blizzard's proprietary file extension for textures - it doesn't stand for blip. What exactly did you try to do? Changing from PPblips2.blp to PPblips.blp (the original style) should work fine as long as you were completely exited out of the game.

I haven't experienced coordinates not working... But can you post this at my portal?

Also, I've been fiddling with the code ever since the configuration was hard-coded, and was wondering why coords wouldn't work sometimes so after searching a little, I added this piece of code to the existing stuff and it seems to work.

Code:
coordframe:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self)
			if PocketPlotDB.coords then
				if IsInInstance() then
					self:Hide()
				else
					self:Show()
				end
				CoordPosition()
    			end
                        if (event == "ZONE_CHANGED") then 
    	        	     SetMapToCurrentZone()
                 	end
    		end)
PocketPlot:SetScript("OnEvent", PlayerLogin)

coordframe:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD")
coordframe:RegisterEvent("ZONE_CHANGED")
PocketPlot:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_LOGIN")

PocketPlot changes blips on its own. If you wish to use that set of blips instead, see that entry in the FAQ on the description page.
