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.

As for your first suggestion, I don't really see myself ever adding that. As you say, they're "logically positioned". If anyone is really picky about that, there are several minimap addons that allow that functionality (such as Chinchilla or SexyMap(?)) or you can move them in the lua file. Each button has it's own section in the code, labeled with comments.

The other suggestions are good ones, though. Could you please add those to the feature requests portion of my portal? It's my to-do list. List them separately, please, in case I get one done before the other. Thanks!
I'll be happy to do that. I thought of another that's fairly big, now that I've toggled between alts with different layouts: we could really use an option to save settings per character. I'll add that suggestion as well

Regarding button positioning, you're absolutely right. It was an easy fix with a .lua edit. Kudos to you for commenting each section so nicely

Edit: Feature requests added

There are a lot of things I really like about this minimap on. Excellent work.
  • The on-minimap tracking swapper is really nice
  • I love the way you handle new calendar notifications - you're the only one that does that right now and it's perfect.
  • The minimap button icons don't have the stupid circular border, they look really nice, and they're logically positioned
  • Not every minimap addon allows you to reposition the durability and vehicle frames, and it's very nice to have.

What could really use a change is that more customization is needed:
  • the position, and more importantly, the size of the minimap icons should be adjustable
  • Enable Mover For... is a little awkward to use for the minimap, since it won't react to scale changes while it's open, and because it's not semitransparent to allow you to see how the minimap looks underneath it. The ability to actually type in x/y coordinates would also be useful, for nudging things exactly where you want them. Or, sure, actual nudge buttons.
  • character-specific settings
  • This is a big one: other than font and size, zone text can't be adjusted. Personally I'd love to be able to remove it. Maybe a text alpha setting is in order.

No, wasn't mentioned in another post... If it was, can you link it?

The tower capture bars (for PvP) were never handled by PocketPlot (see the FAQ). Movers for the other frames were removed with 3.1 because the default UI changed and they are now movable without PocketPlot (see changelog).

If I want to use the original blips from default minimap what line in the Lua do I have to change, and to what?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Seerah....from reading the wow forums it's looking like these scale with ui scale now, very bad idea.

Seerah,
I just updated to 2.5.1. I prefer the Nandini blips from Blipstick, so I've always edited the PocketPlot lua to point to those. I notice with 2.5.1 that the blips are now very small, maybe half the size of what I'm used to.
I tried swapping to your blips included in the folder, and these also seem pretty small compared to the screenshots you have. Any idea what might have caused this?

Funny thing I just noticed is that its not there when I play my alt, just my main for some reason.
/facepalm

it's your calendar alert showing that you have unanswered calendar invites like a 10 man naxx that your guild leader has put up for example..



you definately have an event pending. if your having problems try deleting your Cache folder and let the server recreate you a fresh one.
