About Carbonite Maps

Carbonite Maps is a google style map replacement for world 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.

Guide - Want to know where the nearest bank is? locate a mailbox? The entrance to the latest raid? Carbonite maps can pinpoint and show you the way.

Gather - Carbonite Maps has the ability to track and show your mining and herbalism nodes to allow fast and easy tracking of where they spawn. Includes the ability to import a special gathermate2 release which fully populates your list.

Where did the other parts of Carbonite go? Where is my Warehouse or Social Tracker?

One of the biggest complaints about Carbonite, both from a developer perspective and from a users has been that it was too large and tried to do too much. Now with this release, Carbonite itself is just the maps and nothing more. Each thing Carbonite did, can be picked and chosen as you wish by installing it separately. You can use as much or as little as you want.

- Toc updates
- Dungeonlevel support started
- Profile support
- Lumber gathering added
- Tanaar maps added
- Phasing bugs fixed for older instances
- Horde brawl'gar fixed

    Short answer is yes, Carb now supports the /way function.

  • #92

    After starting WOW, it showed carbonite load and a box came up asking about a map and i said yes/accept which was the wrong thing to do. Basically it has taken my sexy map and clamped it to the carbonite mini map and i cannot get it undone. Please help, thank you.

  • #104

    in options under Map Minimap uncheck move minimap into carbonite map.

  • #119

    Thanks so much for your help Rythal1, am back and using carbonite! The work you do is awesome!

  • #91

    Just installed carbonite for the first time in years tonight so not sure if this is a new bug or not.  

    When I open the map it always centers on the zone and places my character near the middle,  Then if i put my mouse over where i should be it looks like it does some kind of overlay of the area's i've explored and then it shows my character right,  but only while my mouse is over the area,  other wise it switches view and puts me back in the middle of the map.

    This pretty much makes the map useless so i hope its something that can be fixed.  let me know if you dont know what i'm talking about and i'll explain it better or fraps it.

    The download is of 5.059, and I can't seem to get it to work.

    5.1 beta versions?

    It seems that on Carbonite's official forums (which, are part of WoWInterface) there is currently a 5.1-compliant beta version that we don't have here.  I hope that Rythal can upload it on Curse as well.  I'm very glad that he's a project manager and that Carbonite has gone open source, as well.   I've not used it in years, but I'm interested in trying it out when it is updated.   I  use a lot of addons that have in-depth functionality I've found to be best-of-breed over the years, but if Carbonite has a similar level of functionality it would be nice to simplify down and use a single addon to handle many of the functions I'm looking for. For instance...

    In regards to its Gather functionality listed above, does it also support tracking/recording other nodes besides mining and herbs, like Fishing pools, treasure/dirt piles in Four Winds, gas clouds and the like?   How does it compare to GatherMate2 (or Gatherer) - can it import their databases of item locations?   Do you run GatherMate2 or Gatherer alongside Carbonite? Etc...

    How does its Quest Log/Tracker compare to that of QuestGuru? Does it say, allow in-line QuestItem use (ie spawn a little usable icon for the quest item next to the name of the quest)?    Is its Quest database up to date as far as 5.1 (in the 5.1 version of Carbonite of course)  and does it compare to something like QuestCompletist in terms of monitoring available and completed quests and their location in a given area?

    Thanks again!

  • #89

    Yes, most of your content questions are items I've seen inside Carbonite. I no longer use Gather, nor Quest Completist, nor several other items like that.... Though I would like to see the addition of the Dark Soil items into the node info.... I just use the DarkSoil addon for those.

  • #93

    That is indeed good to hear.  Is it currently possible to import Gatherer or Gathermate2 data to Carbonite? I have an extensive selection of saved nodes and it would be unfortunate to have to start from the beginning. If this is not yet possible, I suppose I can use both GatherMate2 alongside Carbonite.    I'll have to try it out and see how it stacks up agains my current addons; I've gotten used to having the in depth options of GatherMate2/w data, QuestGuru, QuestCompletist (or Wholly/Grail - it would be great if these two projects can merge or something. They both do the same thing rather well. Some say QuestCompletist is more accurate/complete, but Wholly/Grail is packed up into a nice library/database for other addons to use. Perhasp Carbonite can integrate the Grail database into its available quest tracking!)   Mapster and others. It would be great if Carbonite could meet my needs as well.

  • #87

    I hope there is an update to Carbonite. It's awsome and miss it!

  • #86
    Re: Carbonite

    For reason carbonite no longer works with the new 5.1 update of WOW. Are there plans to make it so?

  • #85

    Quest link do not link the quest in the correct language (PTbr), links the title quest  English not Portuguese.

    ver: 5.0.5
