MetaMap  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 20100-2
by: MetaHawk [More]
DESCRIPTION:
============
MetaMap adds features to the WoW world map, keeping all mapping type features in a single place.
Some features are:

Adjust the map window size.
Move the map anywhere on the screen.
Adjust the opacity of the window & maps.
Saved sets for toggling between 2 map modes.
Allows full player movement, messaging, etc. with map open.
Adds coords to the main map and the Minimap
Adds Instance maps which open to the correct instance you enter.
Default data included for all bosses & locations etc.
User editable notes for all maps, including instance maps.
NPC/Mob database collectable by mouseover or keypress.
Toggling on/off display of unexplored areas of the map.
Boss Loot Tables displays all the loot dropped by bosses, and more.
Waypoint system to guide you to any set point.
Complete Quest logger with optional history database.
Tracker module for gathering Herbs/Ores etc.
NoteBook module for additional notes, linked to Tooltips.
Inbuilt Import and export facilities for various data formats.
Inbuilt Backup and Restore facilities.
Button on Minimap to open or close the World Map or display MetaMap options.
Key bindings for various MetaMap functions.
Full support for Titan Bar.

INSTALLATION:
=============
Extract ALL folders in the archive to the Interface\AddOns\ location. If you wish the Instance maps to be populated with default information, then on first installation you will need to select 'Extended Options' from the MetaMap menu.
Select the 'Database' tab, then click 'Load Imports'. This will enable the default import button, 'Import Instance Notes'. Click on the 'Import' button to import the data.


ISSUES/COMPATIBILITIES:
=======================
Some addons may reset the map to gather location data.
If your map continuously jumps back to your current location when selecting another map,
it will be due to another addon resetting it. In most cases the authors have made changes
to correct this so, download the latest version of any conflicting addon.

Added frame level adjust for TitanBar button. Works correctly again now.
MetaMapTRK now saves options seperately for each character.
...(Currently looking at changing the map routines, which is likely to take some time).
...(Thought i'd get these fixes out in the meantime).

Alas.
There's a fan update of MetaMap here, if that helps.

The treasure, herb, and ore tracking doesn't seem to work for me. I enabled it but there doesn't seem to be any locations listed. Is there something else I need to download?

Map Note in wrong spot and cant delete/change

i dunno why but my map notes for Falcon Watch in Hellfire is slightly off the mark.. it bugs the hell out of me and i was wondering where the File path for the Map Notes info on correcting the location permanently was located!?

like.. C:\Progr~\War~\interface\addon\~\~ etc..

i know its a minor issue and not sure exactly why it bugs me but there it is screaming "FIX ME!"

Metamap has misplaced Instances menu in older version. Is it already fixed? (It must be moved to far right side of WorldMap) The menu overlaps the another menu Zone Map.

That is my only request for author.

  • Fixed the overlapping dropdown menus at the top. Or am I the only one getting those?
  • Added 1 decimal point precision to coords. Its already there, I'm just displaying it now
  • Added ctl-mouse wheel support for changing scale, and shift-mouse wheel for changing alpha. Actually, just copped that from Cartographer

I was able to find your longer code for the Lightheaded modification, it was on page 46, thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to do this! If possible, I would also love to get your coordinate and menu overlapping fixes as well if it's not too much trouble.

I've tried every other map mod out there and nothing works for me as well as MetaMap. I do hope someone takes over maintenance on this.

I'd love to, but... LightHeaded is still being updated and maintained and the MetaMap change has to be included each time you get a new version. I did post the change to the LightHeaded forum awhile ago (a more complicated change), but it still hasn't been included. You may want to ask the author of LightHeaded to include MetaMap waypoint support as a standard feature.

The change I personally added to my version does the following:
  • Opens MetaMap
  • Adds a permanent note (or uses a nearby note)
  • Flashes the note so you can see where you're really supposed to go
  • Adds the waypoint.
I found that I actually liked this more complicated version better because I wanted to actually see the spot on the map where the coord was located. And if the waypoint was added for a zone other than the one you are currently in, you wouldn't even see it until you entered that zone.

If anyone would like this more complicated change to LightHeaded, let me know.

Please, someone update this addon...

I love this map addon. I've tried Cartographer and it just doesn't compare for me. Now I'm having problems where the map won't always come up. If I knew anything about coding, I would update this thing myself, but I don't...if anyone that does could be so kind, I'm sure I'm not the only one that would appreciate this being updated.

Lightbulb Re: Minimaptrackingframe errors fixed

Fortunately this is a simple fix.

The error code tells you (mostly) what to do.
Date: 2008-02-04 19:00:58
ID: 28
Error occured in: Global
Count: 4
Message: ..\AddOns\MetaMap\MetaMap.lua line 923:
attempt to index global 'MiniMapTrackingFrame' (a nil value)
It says that on line 923 of the metamap.lua file (open with notepad or similar) the variable "MiniMapTrackingFrame" can't be found. A quick search of the file for that variable name reveals line 923 is the only time it's found in the file.

As the posts below suggest, you can comment out the line or better still, rename it to the new variabl name: "MiniMapTracking".



Fogy
As soon as you do that, the errors will be gone, but it hides your minimap tracking icon.. argh.

I suggest replacing the line like this:

Replace MiniMapTrackingFrame:Hide(); with MiniMapTracking:Show();

Then you see your minimap tracking (find minerals, etc), and the errors don't show up.

I'd like to use your modified version. Where can I find it?
Here's the LightHeaded modification for MeteMap (exit WoW before doing this):

1. In the <wow>/Interfaces/AddOns/LightHeaded directory, load "LightHeaded.lua" into your favorite text editor.

2. Search for the following text:
if TomTom then
TomTom:AddWaypoint(x, y, note)
end
3. Immediately AFTER that text, insert the following:
if setmininote then
setmininote(x/100,y/100,note,4,GetZoneText())
end
4. Search for the following text:
if TomTom and type(TomTom.AddZWaypoint) == "function" then
TomTom:AddZWaypoint(c, z, x, y, note)
elseif TomTom then
self:Print("NPC locations are not supported in this version of TomTom.")
end
5. Immediately AFTER that text, insert the following:
if setmininote then
setmininote(x/100,y/100,note,4,select(z,GetMapZones(c)))
end
6. Resave the LightHeaded.lua file


I had a much longer version of this modification that actually added map notes, brought up the map, flashed the note, and gave you the option of adding the waypoint. This one's much simpler and works the same way the other waypoint modifications work. If anyone would like the more complicated version, let me know.
