Harven's Custom Map Pins (Markers)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.2.0
by: Harven, votan
Version 3.1 is a major update! Please backup your SavedVariable.

DependenciesDescription
This addon allows you to place your own markers anywhere on the map. You can place them by typing a command in the chat window or by pressing 'x' key (default) when the map is open. Then a dialog window will appear that allows you to enter the marker description. You can delete and edit markers in the map window by pressing left mouse button on a marker and selecting corresponding item from context menu. There is also an option to share a pin with other players who have this addon installed. Select the "Share" option from the context menu and some text will paste to the chat window entry field. Don't change that text! Just choose a suitable channel and press enter. Requests that arrive at zone, say and yell channels are ignored.

Commands
- /custompin - will place a marker at your position,
- /importpins - will import pins stored in the ["import"] section of the HarvensCustomMapPins.lua file. Read below for more details.

How to add your own pin textures
- Create your 64x64px pin texture (must be .dds format - there is a Gimp plugin which can export to this format),
- Copy texture file to the addon folder (the one with "pinflag.dds" file) - (Optionally you can create a new folder within AddOns folder, lets say "MyCustomIcons" and put texture file there),
- Edit Icons.lua file and add your texture filename at the end (take notice how other filenames look like),
- type /reloadui in the chat window - that's it.

How to use colours
When entering pins description you can use colour markers. To start some color simply write |cRRGGBB where RR is a red compoment in hex, GG - green component and BB - blue component. To end the colour, write |r. Look at the third screenshot for exapmple.

How to export and import pins
Importing/exporting between different clients (en,de,fr) is currently not supported but you can still share your pins in game.
Remember to make a backup copy of the HarvensCustomMapPins.lua file so when you make a mistake you will not lose all your pins. You can safely edit the file only when you are logged out from the game.

Your pins are stored in HarvensCustomMapPins.lua file. The file is located in the following directory:
Code:
US Megaserver:
%userprofile%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables
EU Megaserver
%userprofile%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\liveeu\SavedVariables
To export your pins:
Logout from the game (this will ensure that the pins are saved), and open aforementioned file with your favorite text editor - notepad for example . First find a section corresponding to your account name, for example ["@theharven"]. Then inside this section find ["$AccountWide"] section and ["pins"] section inside it. There you have your pins. A single pin looks like this:
Lua Code:
  1. [39623816] =
  2. {
  3.   ["color"] =
  4.   {
  5.     [4] = 1,
  6.     [1] = 0,
  7.     [2] = 0.164706,
  8.     [3] = 1,
  9.    },
  10.    ["map"] = [[Deshaan]],
  11.    ["x"] = 0.396241,
  12.    ["description"] = [[The Armor of the Seducer]],
  13.    ["y"] = 0.381576,
  14. },
Just copy the pins you like to export.

To import pins:
Logout from the game and open the same file. At the begining of the file create new section ["import"] and paste your pins there, so the begining of the file will look like this:
Lua Code:
  1. HarvensCustomMapPins_SavedVariables =
  2. {
  3.     ["import"] =
  4.     {
  5.         [28266574] =
  6.         {
  7.             ["color"] =
  8.             {
  9.                 [1] = 1,
  10.                 [2] = 0.929412,
  11.                 [3] = 0,
  12.                 [4] = 1,
  13.             },
  14.             ["description"] = [[TEST3]],
  15.             ["y"] = 0.657373,
  16.             ["x"] = 0.282608,
  17.             ["map"] = [[Stormhold]],
  18.         },
  19.         [65376334] =
  20.         {
  21.             ["color"] =
  22.             {
  23.                 [1] = 0,
  24.                 [2] = 0.423529,
  25.                 [3] = 1,
  26.                 [4] = 1,
  27.             },
  28.             ["description"] = [[TEST2]],
  29.             ["y"] = 0.633373,
  30.             ["x"] = 0.653681,
  31.             ["map"] = [[Stormhold]],
  32.         },
  33.     },
Then save the file, login to the game and type /importpins command. You should see some informations about the import.

IMPORTANT CHANGE:
Beggining from version 1.5 all custom pins are account wide (the same pins will be visible to all your characters). To import your pins from other characters just login to the game with those characters. The pins will be imported automatically.

Donations (for versions up to 2.1)
If you like my work you can make me happy by sending some in-game gold/items to @theharven on EU server (but please, no lockpicks ), eventually you can help me pay my monthly subscription by donating some money.

[Edit 09.31.2015]
Since monthly subscription is no longer required to play the game I decided to transfer all future dontations to charity. There is a polish site where you can chose a person you would like to support (mostly children) https://www.siepomaga.pl/. I will be anonymously transfering your donations there, to a person of my choosing and then I will post a link in The Great Donor Hall so you will know who gets your money I would love to help this people so I hope this doesn't discourages you from donating.

Would it be possible to add an option to hide the sub pin filters? I have a very long pin list and with the new filters I have to scroll alot.
Hm, well ok, yes.
So great, thank you!

Sorry for the delay but the new update got in the way.

First, thanks for the advice about the browser. I used a different one and that got me the old version which seems to clash with the new update, so I'm back to your rewrite.
Your advice on that helped too, but somehow I still seem to do something wrong.

Currently, my SavedVar is your default version. Below is a very small part of what I tried to use and which upon login is changed back to the default version.

What am I missing? Any help is appreciated.
I hope you still have the original:
The data variable should look like this. First a long string, which is the texture name, when the floor and when the pibs.
Code:
...
HarvensCustomMapPins_Data =
{
    ["artmapsrivenspirenorthpointbasedds"] = 
    {
        [1] = 
        {
            [74501584] = 
            {
                ["icon"] = 1,
                ["x"] = 0.7450155907,
                ["predefined"] = "Chest",
                ["y"] = 0.1584054134,
                ["description"] = "Truhe",
            },
...
    }
...
}

2. Trying to copy and paste all my pins into the new lua file didn't work either as I couldn't find a corresponding "$Accountwide" section in the rewrite.

3. Trying to re-install the previous 2.10 version didn't work either since the unpacked Zip file also contained only the new 3.1 version.

So, could someone please explain to me how to get all my pins back?

Thanks
Sorry for the delayed response.

To 3.: That must be a browser cache problem. I download the older version and it is definitive not 3.1.

hmm. I'm quite sure there is a data migration done.

There $AccountWide does not exist anymore. Right.
This belongs to HarvensCustomMapPins_Data. You should copy it there instead.
It should look like this:
Code:
HarvensCustomMapPins_Data =
{
    ["artmapseastmarchdirefrostkeepsummitbasedds"] = 
    {
...
The map names are without any "_0".

Can you show me how your SavedVar looks like?

Thanks!
You are not doing something wrong. The way it was implemented caused trouble, so I disabled it. You are the first asking for it since. I can try to re-enable it, but no promise.

And welcome to the party
I also miss the function to share the Pins with my friends..
Thanks for your work!

/edit: Uh, oh .. you already implement pin share again "- New pin share via custom item link."
.. so what are you guys talking about

As ZOS is claiming more and more for themselves and to keep space for other addons, the legend is part of the built-in legend now. On the right, the second from left. Right at the bottom.

You are not doing something wrong. The way it was implemented caused trouble, so I disabled it. You are the first asking for it since. I can try to re-enable it, but no promise.

And welcome to the party
