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.

    I hate not having carbonite as well. Been playing for 4 yrs and loved the map all the bells and whistles was fine. But, the map is where it was at.

  • #459

    I have been using carbonite for years.  The map really changes the game for the better.  I wish to tell you that carbonite that came out for WoW v5 was way over done with too many bells & whistles.  Just a great map is all we want.  If you could could simply give us the great map that carbonite has been in years past before all the attempts to make carbonite do so much other stuff, that is all we want.  I see 48,000 plus downloads a month, which testifies what a great and successful addon it is.  I hate playing without it.  Please update

    From Rythal's Post (the link I posted above)

    I'll stick to this thread instead of making a new one...

    A short explanation of what's being worked on currently:

    The old Carbonite had 2 Zone tables. One followed blizzards zoneID's (4 = Durotar, 9 = Mulgore etc etc),
    and One used it's own numbering system (1000 - 1999 was Eastern Kingdoms, 2000 - 2999 was Kalimdor, 3000-3999 was Outlands etc etc)

    The entire mapping system relied on and was using the 1000,2000 system while guides locations quest tracking etc was using the zoneID system. The two were tied together strictly by the zone name. So during the table initialization, it looked at zone 1001 saw Durotar was it's name and created links between 1001 and 4 in various tables.

    With the new continent coming, that entire system no longer works, as it can't tell Burning Crusade Shadowmoon Valley from WoD Shadowmoon Valley. So I am working on converting the 1000,2000 system over to zoneID's.

    This is also leading to some problems on it's own, as things like Battlegrounds were placed in 9000-9999 and through out the entire mapping system it would check if you were in a battleground by seeing if carbonites internal ID was 9001 etc, so I need to find new ways to check for instances or battlegrounds.

    All of this is compounded by the fact work keeps dragging me from home so I don't have access to work on it. (3 weeks in wisconsin, then 2 weeks in ohio, the rest of this week in toronto) So the working version for WoD won't be anytime soon, hopefully i'll have it going before WoD launches but even that remains to be seen.

    For those who can't wait until it's done, it was a pleasure. For those who can wait, don't fret, it's not abandoned and will be fixed to work before too long.

    thankyou thankyou thankyou! will Donate  ASAP!

  • #457

    Short version: WOOT!! Long version: That people are willing to volunteer their time to such programing, in addition to their real life obligations, says much for those involved. Thank you.

  • #454

    How come my Carbonite is always out of date (red)?  And the last few times I've logged on, the map button doesn't even work anymore.

  • #458

    Because it is out of date...

    Last update was 18 months ago.

  • #453

    r u guys going to update Carbonite?  i really like the add on,,would be great if u did ,,,thanks

  • #451

    UPDATE from wow interface by Rythal

    Good News: Map Overlays are fixed, I can once more see the world
    Bad News: BG / Instance maps are definitely not working now that i've tested them

    Next up: satellite view fixed

    what must of us dont know is that WOW changed the way code is being used to make calls to wow. We are luck the Rythal is willing to keep this addon up todate for us. I too will be glan when it's back.

  • #448

    This hasn't been updated since March of 2013 and is obviously no longer being supported.  What a shame, I actually purchased it back when it first started before Blizzard shut down all addons which required payment.  Back then, this was without a doubt the best addon.  Since there is no more profit motive, the addon has gone to crap.

    I understand Blizzard's issues regarding the subject but what a shame that I need to download something else.

  • #452

    K9Justice, it is being updated, just slow going.   Alot of work has to go into it currently.  Rythal has taken over the project and has had to break the addon down into modules and slowly fix it all in pieces first.   He is doing it on his free time while juggling the rest of his obligations to life.   Slowly though he is making headway =)   If you go to wowinterface you can keep up to date on the progress he makes there, he has been posting bit and pieces of the repairs as he goes, as mcbigboy has posted above and DaveJ1961 has posted the link to the forum below.

    Keep up the great work Rythal! So very happy that you have taken over!  We are really lucky to have Rythal willing to even take the time to update this great addon! Patiently awaiting the launch of the updated carbonite!!!

    It is being worked on at the moment by Rythal. From all accounts it looks like a big job as Blizzard have done their usual and changed a lot  of things.


  • #447

    OMG let carbonite be what it was at that time. A super quest addon without unnecessary features. That is why Dugi is now better than carbonite in this form. I don`t miss carbonite if I must wait many weeks for a runable update.

  • #445

    I feel so lost without Carbonite.... I can't level my alts..... I can't farm herbs/ore......I am literally sitting at the Auction House doing nothing..... Please give me back my Carbonite :(
