About Carbonite

CARBONITE® is a multi feature addon developed by game industry veterans to improve and enhance the game playing experience of World of Warcraft.

Please visit Carbonite's official support forums for technical support, bug reports, comments, suggestions, etc.

Map - The Carbonite map gives you all the information you need in one easy to use and flexible Google like map. Move, size or zoom it the way you like.

Carbonite supports the Blizzard maps added for WotLK and most Cataclysm instances. Right click an instance location on the map and "Toggle Instance Map" or enter the instance for it to be drawn on the Carbonite map. You will need to zoom in, since they are drawn at a small size. You can see your location and create favorites in the instance.

Quest - Blaze through quests at lightning speed and level faster than you ever thought possible. Our extensive quest database lists the location of quest givers, objectives and turn-ins. Simply click any objective from your quest list and Carbonite will show you where to go. No more wasted time bouncing back and forth between a web browser and the game.

Guide/Hud - The guide is your in-game GPS - it contains the location of every mailbox, trainer, flight master, repair vendor, instance, battle master, etc... if it's in the game it's in the guide. Just click the icon and the HUD navigation arrow will show you the direction, distance and ETA to your target. You can also use it to locate your friends or guild members in a battleground.

CarboniteItems - A data addon that contains information on over 25000 game items. It loads when you use the "Items >>" section of the Guide. Mouse over the item icons to see a Carbonite generated tooltip of information on the item. Search items for specific stats or where it came from. Sort by level, name or search line. Browse bosses for loot.

Warehouse - Browse the equipment, bag and bank slots of every one of your characters at one time! Check their professions, money, experience, honor, arena points and more. You don't have to spend your time switching between characters, use the search filter to find the characters that have just what your looking for.

Battlegrounds - Dominate your opponents with our enhanced battleground map. See the combat status, heath, target and target health of all your teammates. See objective timers right on the map and issue orders with a click of the mouse – call for reinforcements to attack a vulnerable enemy target or simply announce the status of an objective.

Events - A time stamped list of experience and honor gained, enemies killed and other information. What was the name of that guy who ganked you 10 minutes ago? How much honor did you get from the last 3 kills? Did you land the killing blow? Look and see.

Gather - All mining and herb picking is tracked and can be shown on map.

UI - Windows can be moved, sized and locked. Values are saved for each character. Coexists well with most UI addons.

Privacy - Not in a social mood? Just turn off communication with guild, friend or zone and other Carbonite users won't see what you're up to.

    this looks amazing... I would've loved to use it but it's outdated ><

  • #480

    I really hope they update this.

  • #474 Buggy but still work than nothing at all. Just download the zip file and put into your addon folder.

  • #478

    Great work so far Rythal and others. I have downloaded the "Master File" linked above and see some of my beloved Carbonite. I have the quest list and it seems to be working well. I also have a scalable map. Interestingly it is showing the correct coordinates for the quests, but the only maps that are showing are all pre WoD worlds. The WoD map is merely a tiny square covered by the cursor.  I am getting ingame spam referring to a NXmap.lua errors 3778 + 3673.

    A tip for others installing the above file. Delete all your old carbonite files before unzipping to your addon folder. Thanks again to the team for your dedication to the Carbonite programme.

    anybody have an idea when this will be updated to be compatible with warlords?

  • #483

    You don't unzip the carbonite.master folder into your addons folder, you unzip the folder contained within the carbonite.master folder into your addons folder.

  • #479

    I deleted them all then unziped placed it in my addon foler. Exited wow and logged back in. It does not even show up in my addons screen. So what am i doing wrong?

  • #476

    omg thx for the update mate...
    rythal....u are the man... I LOVE YOU (no homo)

  • #477

    I have tried both links listed above. It won't work for me at all. It makes the map a tiny sliver but never opens up a map or quest helper now.

  • #473

    Can you pretty please update this addon, I and many others depend on this addon. It needs to be compatible with WOD 6.0. I can't function without it.....<Praying>  

  • #475

    He's working on it. Just be patient. Real life takes priority.

  • #472

    I'm so missing this addon, Blizzard's map>quest>farm interface is so damn useless they should seriously work on their interface.

    However I know why blizzard does it like this, it's both to encourage addon developers and also to make everything blizzard does with interface as small and little resource consuming as possible.

    For that I am grateful.

  • #471

    The band aid put up by tango50 is working for me, thank you.  I have used this add-on since Cartographer died in 09 and am blind when it isnt working.  This is one of my vital add-ons that make playing a much more enjoyable experiance. I cant thank Rythal often enough for not just picking this up when the origanal authors abandoened it but also the persaverirance to convince them to relinquish the copyright to public domain.   I donate to his time and effort each patch  it is something I want to do to say thank you.

  • #470

    @ Tango50

    thanks for the info you put up, using that hotfix and the recommended settings i am now using my ingame map and it also seems to be picking up the quests ok, i am using a lvl 20 toon.

    they key thing for me is the minimap which i use for navigating.. now i can play again..


    ps, thnx Rythal for keeping the addon going, without it myself and many others would probably quit WoW by now..
