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

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.

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

Is there a way to put the looking for group icon inside the minimap and strip the border... like you did with the other icons? Right now it sits lower left of the minimap and still has the ugly blizz border on it.

Edit: Just tried the same workaround that you used for the North tag (MiniMapMeetingStoneFrame:SetAlpha(0)) and it works fine. I'm guessing that's another Blizzard bug with frames?

Ah... I forgot to join LFG to see if that worked. Though I've been in LFG from a group leader joining - I thought that showed it as well? I'll look into it - thanks, erica.

And thank you, tophero.

Love the addon Seerah! Way better than pMinimap. I'd like to tilt your mind towards the new blips and the ENORMOUS black borders around them.. If you could slim down the border to a pixel or two it'd be awesome.. Until then, i'm going to comment the blips in the lua.

Just my two cents.

You mean the tracking, mail, and bg icons? No.

Thumbs up Thank you and a question

Seerah,
Thank you for the beautiful and simple minimap mod.
Is PocketPlot 3.0 ready?
Could you please add a line to move the quest timer frame into the file? I tried adding what I thought would be correct based on my meager research on wowwiki, but it only resulted in the quest timer frame being stretched across the whole screen (an unexpected and humorous result). I ask because this is usually tied in with other map mods and I'd hate to download a 'moveanything' type mod just to move one frame.

Thank you for your time and effort.

The WotLK version of PocketPlot is located in the WotLK download category. Currently, PocketPlot does not handle the other frames around the minimap. I may add them in at a later date.

When you tried to move the timer frame, did you use ClearAllPoints() before trying SetPoint()?

I'm not sure if I used the ClearAllPoints or not. I'll try that tonight and see what I can do with it.

Thanks Seerah.

*edit*
Came across some interesting behavior while testing this. I added the following into the lua:

Code:
local a,b = -200, -50	--offset of the Quest Timer frame from the top right corner.
local qtscale = 1	--Quest Timer frame scaling
 -------
--QUEST TIMER
	QuestTimerFrame:ClearAllPoints()
	QuestTimerFrame:SetPoint("TOPRIGHT", UIParent, "TOPRIGHT", a, b)
	QuestTimerFrame:SetScale(qtscale)
What I found out is that every time the Quest Timer is hidden and then shown again OR when any action is performed it will reset to the default position, making any changes to the lua useless and even when scripted in game, I can watch it return to default as soon as I do anything.

Also changing the setpoint to topleft / topleft will cause the frame to stretch horizontally (the top right corner will always stay anchored).

I've peeked at other mods to see how they do this, but they are doing so much that I quickly get lost in all the locals and ace-specific calls.

In the mean-time, I've macro'd my code so I can at least peak at the quest timer even if it does move back right away (I have buffs below the minimap, the default position for the timer).

I checked the lua but couldn't find a way to scale the tracking/mail icons - they are too big with minimap at 90%.
