PocketPlot  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.0.1
by: Seerah [More]

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

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.

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.

- fixed bug with calendar invite texture

------------------------------------------------

v.2.18.4

- re-enabled the feature

v.2.18.2

v.2.17.1
- fixed lib issue

v.2.17
- updated for Legion
- 2 new minimap shapes
- added shortcuts and optimizations to the coords frame
- temporarily disabled custom blip textures (had the textures all updated, then realized the UI was using a different file now - will be fixed up soon)

v.2.16
- updated TOC number for WoD
- updated minimap blip textures
- added new minimap shape: "Half Round"

v.2.15
- updated TOC number for 5.4
- updated libs
- updated minimap blip textures for new icons (new ones should no longer be hiding!)
- 4 new minimap shapes

v.2.14.2
- updated for MoP
- changed button names
- added option to offset zone text
- added MiniMapChallengeMode to the movers list
- made mover frame text one pt larger and outlined
- battleground and lfg queues now share a button - fixed code to account for this
- updated libs
- removed "MONOCHROME" font flag because it currently crashes the client

v.2.13.2
- increase offsets for clock & coords in options GUI

v.2.13.1
- updated TOC for 4.3

- added: 6 new masks to change the shape of your minimap!

v.2.10.2
- added: gave in and added support for WorldStateAlwaysUpFrame finally (used more often now than it used to be)
- fixed: mover frame should properly show in front of the frame its moving
- fixed: centered zone text
- changed: use ToggleCalendar() instead of what I had before

v.2.10.1
- added GuildInstanceDifficulty flag to the movers list

v.2.10
- Updated for Cataclysm!
- new minimap blip textures, supporting all icons
- font preview in options, using AceGUI-3.0-SharedMediaWidgets
- wider coordinates frame, for bigger fonts
- on/off box for clock removed in Interface Options, so ADDED to PocketPlot
- tweaked clock/coord positioning code
- New font - Negotiate Free (fully redistributable, license included)
- fix for ChatFrameEditBox error when shift-clicking coordinates into chat

Very nice, I'm liking the streamlined look to this very much.

Two things to note with 2.0 when I installed it:
1. Changes to border setting are not saving between sessions or reloading UI.
2. Seems this is doing something strange with LSM?. I'm getting following error with Pocket Plot installed:

No, sorry, the border you see is actually a frame/box sitting behind the minimap. Minimap borders do not work the same as other border textures, which is why it is done the way it is. What you could do is turn the alpha all the way down and put a kgPanel of your own behind the minimap with the border of your choice. If there is enough demand for it, I may add a border to the frame behind the minimap. Do me a favor and post that in my portal as a feature request...

Ack - I'll see what I changed to cause this to not work anymore

hrm... I'm fairly sure I'm doing things right with LSM (only difference between PocketPlot and my other addons is the check to see if LSM is installed)... How did you get this error?

Error only shows up when I log-in or re-load. Can't really see what's wrong as Grid and my other add-ons still look fine as far as all their font settings.....

I've gone ahead and just embedded LibSharedMedia - not sure what I was hoping on saving by doing the reverse. I think I actually shaved off a kb of memory! Try it now, ironwulf.

I have also made the smart coords smarter. They'll hide when you go in an instance, since coords don't exist in an instance anyhow.

eep! Sorry about that. I had moved a block in the code right before uploading, thinking I was making it neater, but I guess I just broke it.
edit: 2.1.1 should fix it for you.


Note to self (for the 20th time): stop thinking after bedtime.

BlipStick?

Love the mod, but I'm curious if you might add support for BlipStick (http://www.tekkub.net/addons/Blipstick) at some point? I'm a big fan of the 'Little Exclaim' blips - the only thing I miss in PocketPlot.

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.

Great addon, been using it ever since patch 3.0 came out.

Noticed though that setting the mail icon texture to the one used by the tracking frame for mailboxes eliminates the black area around it.

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")

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