Mapster  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.8.5
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

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:

1.8.5 (2019-09-25)

I'm having nothing but map problems since MoP.

Often my map is showing the previous zone and wont update.
Sometimes its blank, other times its green.

Almost every time I change zones I must reload ui before I can use my map again.

I've already deleted the addon, and wiped out all saved variables.
And after a re-install it works fine for a day or so then back to the broken state.

NPC Scan is the only other map altering addon I have.

The battleground map seems unaffected, and the main map appears to work if I leave it in "Blobs & Panels" but I'm after the full map "Only WorldMap Blobs" offers.

Whats got me stumped is my family is using the exact same mods I am and their maps work perfectly.

EDIT:
Now that I'm staying in Pandaria more, I've notice it only happens when I change from the continent I logged in on.

Close map

I realy love this addon but i have 2 problems:
1.Woud it be possible to add an option to close the map when i open some other window? Or better it shoud work like normal blizzard map so that when I open quest window that its next to the map and not behind it

2. The tooltips get scaled down very much is there any way to disable tooltip scaling on map? so tooltips always stay same size no matter what size the map has?

@ Tymesink

Strangely error, before MoP the error only came with Mapster, now he's even without Mapster. Believe this is not a pure addon problem.

When the map is minimized, anyone know how to still move it? Right now the "minimized" version is stuck dead center, and I can't deal with it.

Doesn't look like the new update fixed the errors I've been getting in some of the "vanilla" zones.. See the the third post down for which ones I'm referring to.

I see. Somehow i thought it would still do the coloring and flashing on the battle map - it does on the main map (minus group numbers)
I'll look into it why it doesn't, so at least those features are working again.

The GroupIcon code has not changed much at all since 1.3.11, what are you on about?

Technically this is a Blizzard issue, however i added a fix into Mapster for the next version which should try to fix their problem.
