Votan's Minimap  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6.0
by: votan [More]
Description
This addon reactivates the mini map from ZOS. Thus the mini map does not do less, but also not more than the built-in world map, because it is the built-in world map.

No artificial synchronization of (custom) pins between mini map and world map. All kind of pins are supported by design.
But also no border pins or rotation mode and such features. My mini map is intended to be lightweight and fast.
  • Includes world map performance tweaks, which can be disabled for performance comparison.
    The tweaks changing the pin rendering to utilize the CPU up to a framerate of 75 only. Seeing the pins rendered over time is not a sign of overload of this addon, but a compensation of others.
  • Conflicts with other mini maps can be expected. Therefore the mini map can be disabled to use the tweaks only.
  • I do not recommend to use the AUI mini map module at the same time as mine.
  • Gamepad support, but limited due to lines in ZOS source code, they call a "total hack" themself:
    Positioning and resizing in keyboard mode only.
  • The window is resizable via mouse. (this code is written by ZOS, not me)

If you think you need a full-featured mini map try the MiniMap by Fyrakin.

@Shinni did a great job creating a plug-in for a Circular Votan's Mini Map.
And if you want to show group pins in different colors and/or icons, such as showing a different color for dead players, you may want to use Votan's Group Pins.

Providing a mini map can be an unthankful job. I guess Fyrakin could sing a song or two. Therefore I can't resist to say:
The addon works well for me. Otherwise I would not have released it. If you think you have performance problems due to this addon, help tracking down or stop using.
Frame freezes are most likely coming from an addon providing a lot of pins without taking care about creating even a simple pin takes some time multiplied by hundreds.
In this case the author of that addon can make it more mini map friendly, only.

Thanks to @scootworks, @Anceane and @Drakanwulf for testing

Remarks
  • There are key-bindings to toggle the mini map on/off. For technical reasons the toggle while at siege weapons needs its own key-binding. But you can re-use the same key.
  • If you feel dissatisfied with the second main menu entry for "Addons", take a look at Harven's AS to LAM adapter.
  • In order to move or resize the window, you need to go to the mouse-cursor mode. You can do this by pressing the key-bind for mouse-cursor mode, which is "." (dot) by default. Or you press "Enter" as if you want to start chatting.
    Once you have the mouse pointer you can drag the window with the title-bar and bottom-bar. Or resize it using the border. The mouse pointer will change. Like in Windows. (And I guess MAC, too )

This isn't new, this has always been a thing and is even listed in the description. To make it easier, there is a keybinding toggle in game to switch gamepad mode on and off, I set mine to F12 and swap between the two as needed.

Thanks. The tweaks are spreading draw tasks over time. Seeing the pins being build is not a sign of overload, but to keep the framerate up.
There is one option "Asynchronous Update", which works better in combi with Votan's Adaptive (Video-)Settings.
So, you may want to turn it off.

This mini map, as any mini map, depends on how much custom pin addons you use and how much they have to process to show them.
I have not seen a memory leak with the addons I use.
Thank you for your answer. On elast question. There is also an option for CPU optimization or something like this. Should it be turned off or on?
If you are talking about "World Map Tweaks": I have them on, of course.
At map zone transision you can have one recognizable hiccup or freeze (off) or a short period where your fps drop to 70 or 60 but not more (on).

This has nothing to do with the great stutter which sometimes happens leaving or entering a crowded area. This happens without any addon, too.

P.S. By the way I have only Map pins addon installed as custom pins with only "Skyshards found" enabled. Hope this won't affect the performance....

Seers!
It is written there for a long time, isn't it? Well, I have promised it. Currently I work on Fisherman, but yes, I will.
I look forward to it!

Unhappy Newest Patch is Causing Problems

With new patch 4.3.5 on the EU server interior maps no longer have icons which makes navigation REALLY hard, especially with places like Thieve's Dens where it's chaos at the best of times.

How long can we reasonably expect this truly fantastic addon to be maintained, before the devs at ESO break it completely?
