Votan's Minimap  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6.9
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 )

+1 for no other minimap will do.

Also if anyone is getting the glitch where the big map gets 'stuck' and keeps popping up when closing menus, you can fix it without reloading by hitting the keybind you have set for map to bring it up, move your mouse away from the edge of the map outside, and hit the keybind again to hide it, after which it will hide and work properly until the glitch crops up again.

Yours is the best one.

Best Votan addon so far, it should be updated first <3

I was told in zone to try Bandits UI but I don't want a different UI. I'll wait for a fix. In the meantime, /reloadui fixes things til they glitch again...

Attempting the trick other's have pointed out for the Scrying just opens up another map, but you can't click on any of the waypoints. Nor can you zoom out beyond the Cyrodiil region.
For Cyrodiil transitus, you can, as a workaround, hit 'M' immediately after selecting the transitus shrine. That will briefly bring up the regular map but it will transition into a "clickable" map that you can use for transport.

You can't use this trick when resurrecting though. It is still broken there.

Would be nice if there was an option to disable big map. Not really necessary, yes?

Thanks for the workaround. I came here to report the issue after a process of elimination that discovered the issue with scrying was caused by this addon. It is great it is known. Hopefully, a fix will come in the near future.
This works great! i had been disabling minimap which is rough after numerous years using it (thanks Votan!). However with this workaround I can continue to use minimap so I don't bumble around like a fool.

Don't know why, but pressing E does not work for me.
E does not work for me either, but G does. I think it's whatever key you have mapped to "interact/activate".
EDIT: Or more likely is probably the mapping under UI Shortcuts for "Primary Action/Accept" which is also G for me.
