Mapster  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.5.6.1
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:

Thanks for any help. Much appreciated!
my apologies... it looks like the same thing when using metamap only as well. i'm just guessing that blizzard made changes with the API as quest tracking is updated when maps change - i hope there is away to get around this.

thanks all your efforts!

Would there be a way to link to Atlas Dungeon Maps, or pull the Atlas Dungeon Maps into Mapster via a Plugin or Option? So when we open the Map in a nonLK Dungeon we see the Atlas Map?

I'd like there to be a keybind for Regular Map and Minimized Map.

So I could set something like M for Map and Ctrl+M to downsize the map the the Minimized version. I tried using Blizzards keybinds in game for map size and it threw an error.

Atlas provides its own maps whereas Mapster only takes information supplied by Blizzard (currently there are only a few instance maps). So I guess you're out of luck for this request.
One solution though: Cataclysm provides maps for vanilla instances

Same. It'd be nice if Esc closed the map.

I am having the same problem while in a party or a raid. It is quite annoying! I read on another page that ticking "Hide Textures" in the BattleMap settings for Mapster fixes the problem, but it is not doing so for me.

The way I fixed it was disabling the option "Enable Group Icons", wich will just leave the default game icons on the map, but much better than colorfull squares or invisible ones.

Dumb question, but...

I clicked the diagonal arrow next to the "close map" button, and now the map won't appear for my main toon, I guess it's minimized.

I can hear the sound of the map opening, but nothing on the screen.

How to restore regular map functionality?

I love mapster, and am using it along with RealUI.

However, I do a lot of dungeons and i'm wondering if there's a way to have instance-maps or anything of that type.

Niblehiem mentioned Atlas, but I'm not sure if it'll clash with Mapster, and all I really want from Atlas is the instance-maps. Is there a way for me to do this?

Possibly Mapster could only extract map data for instance maps when one is in an instance using provided data almost like how Atlas works... can this be done?
