Votan's Minimap  Updated less than 3 days ago!  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 )

LibAsync addons

I'm also getting the conflict between the newest version of LibAsync and old versions. I think that the game thinks that LibAsync version 1.10 is older than version 1.08 and is loading the wrong version.

Make sure to replace the LibAsync folder with the newest (Elsweyr) version in the following mods. Replacing the one in PotionMaker with the old one not only doesn't fix the problem, but isn't future proof as well.

Votan's MiniMap
Inventory Assistant


Furniture Catalogue also uses LibAsync but does not bundle it.

Now I understand better why addon authors should not bundle libraries, 90% of the time it works and sometimes, it does this.

After updating all these mods by hand I can confirm that everything is working properly. What an annoying bug to track down!

0.29986461997032

Any idea what the heck this is?

Thanks again for a fantastic series of addons!

Any idea what the heck this is?

Thanks again for a fantastic series of addons!

I check that.

/edit: That is indeed a message from Faster Travel. A timing problem in combination with the mini map.
I posted a message with a fix to the author of Faster Travel.

A Question Re Odd Message

Hello,

This may or may not be related to your addon but I had to start somewhere. I use FasterTravel (latest) and when porting a known wayshrine there is a list on the right side under the zone name. I click on the wayshrine I want to travel to and something along the lines of the following shows up in chat.
