Mining Addon - Node Detecter

Hello, I searched around and couldn't find anything (Though I might not have searched well enough). But an addon that gives a warning across the screen (Configurable) when a node appears on the minimap would be super-de-duper. Would it be legal? Or if it's already been made, a link would be great =D

Hope you like.

I'm fairly certain this was answered in Here and Here .

I wish this was available. However short of that I would love to have a "mini map" be transparent except for the nodes enlarged and centered on my screen with a toggle button for normal mini map and node mini map.

Is that something that can be done? Cant tell you how many times i fly at epic speed and miss a node because Im watching the road and not the mini map.

This can't be done, intentionally. The UI has no control over what the game renders on the minimap and has no knowledge of what's there and what's not there.

I found this in outdated mods, if someone wants to update it, it might work for you.

That is... an interesting solution to the problem. I have to admit.

Okay this is a bit far-fetched. But why not I guess if it behaves properly when you have many other addons modifying or hooking up to the minimap frame, if it does not kill FPS rate while scanning and if it has no impact on your mouse-clicks. It is a bit like writing a letter moving your entire desk with your feet because you broke your arm and cannot move your hand.
