About WoWMap

WoWMap - English

Description

Tired of having to work your way through that annoying dropdown menu every time you want to check something on a different map? Then WoWMap is for You! It makes the map in Runes of Magic feel more like the map in World of Warcraft for easier handling and displays maps inside of instances as well.

Features

  • Easy Handling:
    Switch from one map to another with an easy to use interface:
    • Leftclick an Icon on the map to switch directly to that map. i.e. you can change to the map of the forsaken abbey by clicking its icon on the map of silverspring.
    • Rightclick somewhere on the map, to "zoom out" of that region. i.e. if you are viewing the map of Varanas, you would switch to the map of silverspring.
    • the old functions of the map are still available, you just have to hold down the shift key on your keyboard to perform them.
  • Maps inside instances
    I cannot tell why this doesn't work in Runes of Magic, so this solves that problem. All known instances will be displayed correctly!
    SlimClient users need WoWMap_Instances
  • Additional Maps
    We added some custom maps to fill the gap Runes of Magic did. (world map, Dalanis,...)
  • Points-Of-Interest
    It has an easy interface for addon developers to add custom icons to the maps.
    We recommend our side project: WoWMap-POI ( it is required to disjoin quest and dailyquest npc-icons on custom maps )


Installation

Unpack the Archive and move the Folder "WoWMap" into "Runes of Magic\Interface\Addons". If this is your first Addon, then these folders won't exist, in that case you have to create them manually. After you have done this, just start the game as you always do. After login, you should see a line in the Chatwindow, informing you that the addon has been loaded. If you want to update to a newer version, just replace the Folder "WoWMap" with the new one, thats all thats necessary.

If you are using the CurseClient, you dont have to care about anything, everything will be done automatically.

Localizations

WoWMap should work on every client with every possible language. But as we only using german and english, We cannot test that, so Please contact us, if there is a problem with your language!

Known Issues

- if you open the map in 'no map' zones (like house) quest icons of your last displayed map will be visible
- world-search & group members are not displayed in custom maps (like dalanis)




WoWMap - Deutsch

Beschreibung

Keine Lust mehr, dich jedes mal durch das lästige Dropdown-Menü zu kämpfen, wenn du mal eben etwas auf einer anderen Karte nachsehen möchtest? Dann ist WoWMap für dich! Es passt die Bedienung der Kartenfenster von Runes of Magic an jene von World of Warcraft an für eine einfachere Bedienung und stellt außerdem Karten von Instanzen dar.

Features

  • Einfache Bedienung:
    Wechseln von einer Karte zur anderen durch einfach zu bedienende Schnittstellen:
    • Linksklick auf ein Symbol auf der Karte wechselt die Karte direkt zu dieser Zone. Beispielsweise kann man direkt zur Karte der Verlassenen Abtei wechseln, wenn man das entsprechende Symbol auf der Karte von Silberquell anklickt.
    • Rechtsklick irgendwo im Kartenfenster zoomt die Karte heraus, also wechselt beispielsweise bei Betrachtung der Karte von Varanas nach Silberquell.
    • die bisherigen Funktionen sind immer noch vorhanden, man muss dafür lediglich die Umschalt-Taste gedrückt halten.
  • Karten im Inneren von Instanzen
    Es ist mir ein Rätsel, weshalb das in Runes of Magic nicht grundsätzlich funktioniert, WoWMap behebt diesen Mangel jedenfalls. Alle bekannten Instanzen werden korrekt dargestellt!
    SlimClient Nutzer brauchen zusätzlich: WoWMap_Instances
  • Zusätzliche Karten
    Wir haben einpaar eigene Karten hinzugefügt, um das Karten-Design abzurunden (Kontinent-Übersicht, Dalanis,...)

Installation

Entpacke das Archiv und verschiebe den darin enthalteten Ordner "WoWMap" nach "Runes of Magic\Interface\Addons". Sollte dies dein erstes Addon sein, wird es diese Verzeichnisse nicht geben, in diesem Fall musst du sie selbst anlegen. Nachdem du das getan hast, starte das Spiel ganz normal, dann solltest du über eine Nachricht im Chat auf die Installation hingewießen werden. Wenn du später auf eine neuere Version updaten willst, ersetzte diesen Ordner mit dem neuen, mehr ist nicht notwendig.

Wenn du den CurseClient benutzt, musst du dich um gar nichts kümmern, in diesem Fall geschieht alles automatisch.

Lokalisierung

WoWMap sollte auf jedem Client mit jeder verfügbaren Sprache funktionieren, aber da ich nur Deutsch und Englisch benutze, kann ich es nicht testen, also Kontaktiert mich bitte, wenn es Probleme mit deiner Sprache gibt!

    I added a ticket with a mockup idea on dynamically mapping out maps with missing files for a crude but usefully map. Not sure if this will be possible but I it seems doable. I have a feeling that frogster patches might not contain any rw folder updates and that we will have to wait til the next client download update, hope i'm wrong. But either way this idea could help with all future missing maps with only needing a very minor code update per map.

    Indeed, thats the point. And you're not wrong. But you could be glad that RW let this folder in the full-clients otherwise you had to wait for the clients from other publishers.

    But fingers crossed for your other idea, hope it works ^^

    Did a proof of concept, and it seems it is possible to do a dynamic map with map markers. I have new appreciation for the work that went into yGather now as well. Working on a first draft for a working model now. It will most likely be plagued with inefficient coding, but I'll try to get it ready in the next day or 2.
  • #213
    ZOMG, I got it to work somehow, Still need to put it through some test paces, and a little code optimizing and it should be uploaded within 24 hours. For now, sleep time.

    Hello, I just got back to (being able to play) the game last week after a 4 month forced break by my mom, and after updating everything and loging on I found an icon on the map.

    http://img6.imageshack.us/g/rascrnshot2010090615180.jpg/

    The first screen is the mouse not on top of the AQB Snoop icon, and the second screen shows what happens when I mouse over the Crystal Ball. A strange icon comes up and yGather has no option to move it a bit or remove it.

    The author of ygather says it's not ygather doing it. Nevermind that he quit (Which is sad but hopefully somebody will continue his work), but he says it's not ygather at least. And since this is conflicting with AQB, it can't be AQB doing it.

    Is there any way to move this icon so it's not conflicting with AQB please? Thank you.
  • #204
    That crystalball comes from Advanced Questbook? Never used that addon.
    That "strange icon" that appears when you move your mouse there? Yes, thats from WoWMap and represents a link to Dustdevil Canyon.

    I think it is hard for authors to maintain full compatibility to addons, they do not use and dont even know. Thats the problem, when the number of addons is growing.

    I can only give you the advice to open the WoWMap.lua with a texteditor and delete the corresponding lines from the linktable (lines 62 and 63), but if I would have to update everytime a conflict with an other addon is reported, I would have to make thousands of updates a day, which is not funny for me as it is not funny for the users, who would have to update their addons again and again.


    these are the lines, you have to delete:
    {0.730, 0.147, 0.798, 0.231, 6, "zone", 0.3},
    {0.466, 0.866, 0.526, 0.934, 6, "zone", 0.3},

    There's really only a couple addons around that modify the map because map addons do tend to conflict, so you wouldn't have to modify for a lot of addons. Also I know authors usually make sure there's no conflicts, like when pbinfo used to conflict with nkcraft. All I'm asking is for those icons that seem to let you jump to the next zone be made optional or shifted over a little bit so both the WowMap icon and the AQB icon are visible (This involves changing coordinates I think?).

    Everybody who uses both addons would have to edit WowMap each time to remove the floating icons on their version and the feature would not be as used as if both icons were visible.

    Please would you fix it? It's a great feature but the WowMap icon is all but covering the AQB icon. Probably happens in all cities. I only checked OS.
  • #206
    Okay, I have removed the links from cities (obsidian stronghold and varanas), as the zoomout function switches to the neighbouring zones as well. I am still trying to find the map of the raksha temple, when its working, i will release an update
  • #207
    THANK YOU so much! I'm sorry if I was being a pest about this, but I was about to bring that up too. I was thinking the right click zoom out puts you into the zone when zooming out in a city, but this would be simply amazing on the rest of the map to switch to nearby zones without having to zoom out then click again. Looking forward to it. :)

    great add!

    heya , my map doesnt show AV on world map but everything else is working , even instances . any help would be nice
  • #198
    I am sorry, but what do you mean with "AV"?
  • #199
    AV means Aotulia Volcano in short :)
  • #200
    Do you have a mappack installed? Your problem sounds like you are using an old worldmap, where AV (:P) hasnt been included. WoWMap doesnt change the worldmap you are using, so you have to get rid of that old file, wether that means deleting this possible old mappack, or installing a newer gameclient of RoM
  • #201
    Not sure if it's related, but after one of the later updates of the game/this addon, the instance maps aren't working anymore (entire addon seems disabled for some reason). And that's with a fresh (as fresh as it can be) installation. Tried to install the other addon as well that is linked above, but to no avail :/
