This project has been canceled. I don't want to work on something that i'm not interested in anymore.

Yeouch, red wall o' text against a dark gray background. If you want your post to be readable, use the default text colors and only use red text to highlight something of particular importance.

Sorry, but it sounds like "I can't even make helloworld addon and need someone to do it for me."

WoWMap
Carbonite

WoWTheme
nUI

By all means, I'm not telling you to try. Just be aware that what you are proposing is currently covered and "regularly" updated.


Note: I was going to try to put an internet browser in, but I'd have to figure out how to do that with blizzard's permission, and without using a .exe file. I might have to use regular browsers and make them work in-game, but I don't know.
This is impossible to do. I have high doubts that Blizz is going to change their policy, and code, to allow one addon to do this. It's a all-or-nothing deal.

Umm... they don't cover all of it, and besides, the design will be completely different, and btw, Carbonite doesn't have mob locations does it? I didn't think so.

I think you would be better off writing a plugin for Carbonite.

Why wouldn't it? The policy of Blizzard says you can't copyright ur addons, cuz blizzard owns it all, so I think your free to code a plugin.

There is no real reason why you couldn't. People design plugins for other projects all the time. As long as you aren't changing the addon, simply adding to it, there should be no issues. Prime example of this would be Atlas.

No but MobMap does

Good luck with your addons ... I hope you succeed. But knowing nothing about LUA and programing is going to make this a very hard and long journey for you ... even with help.

Again Good luck.

It's time...

It's time to start a day of development. I tested the TOC file and it works! WoW can read the addon. Remember, WoWFeature is plugin-enabled, so you can make plugins for it. Oh, and also, I'm going to be adding to the list of addon features. I had just thought of these features not too long ago.

I wish you the best, I will jump on using it and testing it for you, but that'll be as far as I'm able to help.

If everyone had this same philosophy and stuck to it, there would only be one addon for every purpose. That would suck, wouldn't it?

ChaosInc ain't the nicest people around, but they are blunt with the truth. BUT, I do agree that this will be a hard project, especially if you don't know Lua or don't know how to code and are looking for people to help you with something of this magnitude. I have tons of idea's myself, but not knowing Lua, I won't express my want to make anything, because its a hard task at hand to ask for.

I've actually messed with it, and have learned how to make it work really well. I was asking experts about it and everything. I have much better knowledge now about coding.

EDIT: I'm going to be coding tommorrow, and so I will be busy. I just want people to see the progress and such. If you get what I mean.

Making addons for a game is like anything in life, takes time, practice and a hell of a lot of patience.

I am not sure about anyone helping you with the actual coding of your new found project, but i am sure, if you get stuck and you ask, there are alot of very talented addons developers here that would point you in right direction and give tips on how to do things correctly.

WoWI as a community are generally very helpful (even though, after reading a few of the comments posted here, you may think differently) and i look forward to testing your project.

Sorry for not replying.

Sorry for not replying, but i've been busy with stuff. I finally got back to this project and I'm gonna wait till cataclysm is out first. I probably won't do much with it other than the main files until cataclysm is out. Sorry, but the truth is: I'm not sure it'll work when cataclysm is released because it's an expansion, just like many of you have said, and i've taken that into consideration and have decided to delay the project. sorry for the inconvenice.

PS: I renamed the project and it's now gonna be known as Map of Azeroth. Pretty cool name I thought up lol.

Talking Hmmm...

I'm not going to create WoWFeature, and i'll move those things into their categories. Actually... I think I might add something... maybe some extra info on those addons.

EDIT: This means that they'll be totally seperate addon downloads that go together.

You can take a look at my BornabeUI Skins to see if they give you a decent 'base' layout to use, and I even have a PDF so folks can create their own look and artwork anytime using the same layout, so the UI you code could use say, BTex, and an artwork framework which allows users to import their own custom 'theme' which doesn't mess with the actual UI elements themselves, just the appearance of the nice tidy package at the bottom.

Type BornabeUI here on WoWinterface.com to look at my BTex Artwork, etc...

Hello,

I'm saying this with all the respect!

In my opinion this is wrong, you weren't honest enough in your post and intents, yet you expect authors to join you, not only you make demands ?

I mean you have no experience, you can barely write some of the things you mentioned yet you want us to be devoted ? yet you expect people to have coding skills whereas you have none, how is that logical ?

You should have at least code 50% of the things and ideas before expect anyone to join you, at the moment it seems like you're looking for us to get your job done.

Just an opinion, but something stinks.
