Votan's Minimap  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.7.3
by: votan [More]
DependenciesDescription
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 )

Can you dig into it ?
I'm reverting back to previous minimap version that has not the issue
The refresh delay is still here with 1.7.3
Especially for the QuestMap addon POI displayed (as an option) in Map Pins addon
I would guess the addon is trying to prevent frame drop by speading the execution of this quest addon over time.
Can you link me the addon you use?

The map itself is correct (it switches to the correct battleground). Its just that the zoom level is wrong at the start

Not related to the deathscreen because the minimap is zoomed in even at the start when no death screen is present, and zooming out to 0 does not happen when the death screen is triggered during the match

Also unrelated to mounting because this seems to be a problem in all battlegrounds, and in most of them you cannot mount at all

What is
Code:
addon.isSpecialZoom
? Seems that is checked before battleground, so maybe its not falling through to the other elseif conditions (line 686)?

Also, noticed theres a typo on line 2206: ToogleZoom() instead of ToggleZoom()

And if you tell me specifically what to test for in a battleground I dont mind being the guy that says "sorry just debugging"

Voltans MiniMap issues

I am using Voltans Minimap well I was until half way through the Summerset event when it bugged out and had to switch to MiniMap by Fyrakin.

Missing all discovered map pins. Only show's a few for the zone I Loaded the game in. Cant teleport to any wayshrine they are all missing when I zoom into any zone they only have one or 2 wayshrines and only for the zone I am in.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Voltans and all Libraries, that did not help.
Was wondering if anyone may know what could have caused my problems or how to fix?
I really would like to get Voltans working again.

Thanks

Is there a way to diagnose the problem, and figure out why battlegrounds are not always starting with 0 zoom?
First, I don't do PvP. And second, can you imagine the chat: "Hey guys, don't kill me. I am just here for debugging."

Is it switching the world map? Or is it the death screen? Did you mount?

Am I missing an ingame option that also needs to be checked for this to work? For now I started using another addon called nocompass to keep it hidden.
jo. my fault.

First of all, thank you for such a great addon.

I do have one small issue though, I can't seem to get the compass to hide. I thought it might be a conflict of some sort, but even when installing only the minimap and libs, the minimap still isn't touched.

Am I missing an ingame option that also needs to be checked for this to work? For now I started using another addon called nocompass to keep it hidden.

Does anyone know if using "custom scale" under the video options is compatible with this addon? I noticed if I disable it I'm good. If I don't then all my icons on the big map move around or are missing. So I can't teleport to certain wayshrines, etc. I'm not sure which settings to tweak to affect the big map (world map).

Can you dig into it ?
I'm reverting back to previous minimap version that has not the issue
Yep, same kind of problem here for me.
Example screenshot after closing the Craglorn map by right mouse click, to show the Tamriel map:



It's shown for ~100-200ms for me and then the Craglorn mappins disappear on the woirldmap.
-> Mappins shown are eso vanilla and Destinations pins (red delve bosses pins e.g.).
Same happens if I open the Craglorn Map. Most pins are not showna t all for 100-200ms and then they all of sudden appear.
