SimpleCoords  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.03
by: schnoggo [More]
SimpleCoords creates a movable window that displays the player's location as coordinates.
Many hint and help web sites (Thottbot, WoWHead, etc.) use these coordinates to help players find objects or characters in the game.

SimpleCoords also allows you to enter coordinates and display them on the minimap.
Version 1.2 and beyond also puts a dot on your main map.

To Use:
· Quit the World of Warcraft application.
· Unpack the .zip file into your /World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons directory like any other addon.
· Restart World of Warcraft.


A new window with your current location will appear.
Hold down the SHIFT key and drag the window to your preferred location.

To find a location:
Clicking the coordinate window (without the SHIFT key) will open a panel where you can enter the coordinates you are looking for.
Press RETURN to put this location on your minimap and your zone map.
If the location is outside of the mimimap boundaries, it will display an arrow pointing in the direction of entered location.


SimpleCoords uses the amazing Astrolabe Library by James Carrothers. (Included in the package)

Fixes

There was some texture and graphical coordinate issues with the mod (Arrow is misplaced and minimap icon is showing 2 blurry lines instead of dot) so i looked into SimpleCoords.lua, These changes fix it all:

line 31:
mapIcon:SetHeight(16)
mapIcon:SetWidth(16)
line 36:
texture:SetTexCoord(0.875, 1, 0, 0.5)
line 115:
local x = .03875* math.cos(angle + HALF_PI) + 0.05375
local y = .03875* math.sin(angle + HALF_PI) + 0.05375

I'll look into the arrow issue (hadn't seen that).
The dot image has been replaced and is working now.

Works like a charm, and shows up both on the minimap and the world map...but...how do I remove the waypoint if I want to without actually delete the cords where I first typed them in, and then hit enter again?

It's possible I pushed the 3.0 version out too early and you grabbed that one.
Once you get the patch in place today it should be fine.

I also posted a new version today (1.5) that incorporates the latest revision of Astrolabe. Looks like tweaks for the new Eastern Plaguelands zone.

Latest version allows you to "close" the panel and hide the targets.

Re: Simplecoords

Hi, can you please save the location of the frame so I don't have to move it every time I load the addon? I don't always need coordinates (eg when I pvp, raid) and It's a pain to move the frame every time I load it. I'm not sure why you would have the default location be in the exact center of the screen. At the very least, have it load at the right side of the screen. Even better yet, put it in a useful place, like by the minimap. Yes I know Blizzards FrameXML code sucks, but It wouldnt be very hard for you to do this, just a few lines of code.

lol I didn't want to register just to make this post, so I guessed at a login and password and it worked...

Anyways, I love this addon, only thing I'd like to see is once you put in your coords and the arrow pops on the mini map a "Time to that spot would be great kinda like how questhelper shows how long to get to the spot...

Simple Coords on PTR

I know it's not out yet, but I figured I'd post this here just in case you're wondering if you need to update this mod for 3.1. I get this error on the PTR:

Code:
[string "SimpleCoordsFrame:OnUpdate"]:1: attempt to call global 'Simple_Coords_OnUpdate' (a nil value)
It also spam causes the error resulting in 'a large number of errors' pop-up asking if you want to disable AddOns.

In any case, I very much enjoy using this AddOn and would like to see it continue to be updated as WoW is itself. Hopefully this helps towards a future build for 3.1.

Re: Re: Simple Coords on PTR

this allows you to enter coordinates and display them on the minimap (in a second by a click, no need to open some map and create a note and bla bla). All players need this, because Quest helper comments say always go to "xx yy", cant belive isnt updated or isnt another addon like this, instead we have lots of other stupid and hard to understand addons sry to say
