Mapster  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6.0
by: Nevcairiel [More]
Mapster is a very simple world map enhacement addon, which was designed to work in conjunction with all other map addons out there. The idea to create Mapster originated from pure lack of a simplistic addon that only modifies the world map, without adding a full scale feature set.

Features
  • Map Style (Scale & Alpha)
  • Coordinates
  • Fog of War removal
  • Enhancement of the raid/party group icons
  • Access to the WotLK Instance Maps from anywhere!

You can access the Mapster configuration menu through the new button on the world map, as shown in the screenshot.
All features (except the style) can be turned off individually if you do not need/want them.

If you're looking for a replacement to Cartographer, i also recommend the following addons:

Any plans to update for 4.2? I know I can change the TOC file, but I was just curious if the addon author had modifications to make and was going to update soon.

Would be also interested in any info on the "without any borders" thing. Actually on one of my characters it works, on another not. And did not manage to make it on that other character in any way.

Enabling FogClear isn't working properly.
If I enable FogClear, my whole map is revealed despite not having visited some areas yet. I can't even set the overlay color or anything because no overlay appears. Even worse, if I enable FogClear, Uldum completely disappears. I've tried this with and without other addons running and the result is always the same. I've also reinstalled with the latest version of Mapster and I deleted the SavedVariables file in the process. No change.

The colorful shapes are from NPCScan Overlay.
Uldum is the only zone affected by the disappearing, but every zone is affected by the FogClear Overlay problem.

Screenshots:
Disabled
Enabled


::edit:: Fixed after much confusion. It turns out this was conflicting with Zygor Guides' "Reveal Map" feature. While I can't fathom why I was having this issue when I disabled all addons but Mapster, I have fixed the problem by disabling that feature of ZG. I'll leave this up just in case someone else has the same problem in the future.

Hi, congrats on this new version, it really works well.

The ONLY problem and the ONLY thing i miss about Mapster who i really loved over the years, it's the fact that Class Colored dots are not working on Battleground map. They are working on Minimap and Worldmap, but not on the Battleground map. I remember back in the day, they were working and i really can't do BG's without them.

I'd appreciate if u'll fix that, it's the only thing Mapster is still misssing to be the Mapster i loved.

Thanks in advance.

Did not work for me .. I deleted all instances of "Mapster*.* that my PC would allow, too.

Interesting .. I use a custon UI called LUI, that was the culprit. Disabled its Map module and Mapster works fine now.

I disabled all addons but Mapster and it still did it, I find that if you hit M then escape your map shows up and your UI comes back ... For now, Mapster gets disabled

No actually, that's the very same error posted by other people before. Tellat's instructions fixed that error here.

You either haven't followed Tellat's instructions properly or you tried editing the file while WoW was active and didn't fully exit before coming back.

Exit WoW completely & then edit the file as per the instructions. Start WoW up again and relog. If you did this and you are still getting the error, not much more that can be done. Find a friend/relative, etc. able to properly edit the file on your end.

EDIT: you might want to download the updated official version just released to Curse at this link: http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...s/mapster.aspx (version 1.4.1). Likely will be posted at WowInterface here later.
Will do. TY
