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.



The official Maps release for WoD

    If your not seeing the blobs you probably haven't turned them on.. Digsites was just the icon showing where a site is, for blobs right click the map and select "Show..." then turn on arch/quest blobs there.

    But as JimJo mentioned it is bugged right now, so only turn them on if your not going to be entering combat. Sadly my arch skill is ... 1 so when testing I was in old world zones that I never saw any combat to notice it.

    I can say there is a problem with the Archeology blobs in Carb... it is known and I'm sure it's being worked on..

    It's something about them being protected while in combat that taints the addon. 

    This is also affecting other parts of Carb like if you go in to combat while having the map in full size mode, you are unable to minimise the map and won't see what is actually attacking you. Usually resulting in death unless you are really good at combat with your eyes closed..

    So be carefull about maximising the map near mobs that could attack you...

    Also thanks for your report.... Laughing

    I don't want to sound like a party pooper, But could you please post your bug reports in the Carbonite Bug reports section on the WoWInterface website?

    Rythal has a HUGE job with de-obfusicating the code and getting the features to work as intended and it helps to have all the reports in the same place.. Rather than having to go to different sites to find them.

    I'm not saying don't report the bugs.. It really helps to have feedback.. I'm saying don't be supprised if your report gets forgotton when posted in the wrong place.

    I second this, these walls of text are horrible. There is a place specifically for bug reports.  I wish they would remove those walls of text from the comments.

    Either here:

    or Here:


  • #17

    Thank you so much!!!  This is awesome Laughing

  • #16

    Thanks so very much to all involved  for updating!  This is the only one addon that I simply cannot play without anymore. The integration of the mini-map and the quest tracker are the two things I really need and cannot enjoy the game without.

    Just a note that with version 5.054, Zygor fails to recognize a waypointer-thingy alternative.

  • #24

    This is because Zygor uses call's to the old Carb waypoint system, which before Rythal took over was obfusicated...

    As far as I know that part of the code has been re-written and is much easier to call on....

    I remember reading somewhere that the dev of Zygor is working on a soloution and all you have to do is be paitent..... Keep an eye on the Zygor site for an update.

    The guide feature looks amazing, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to have any MoP info in its database...I'm in VoEB and its telling me the nearest AH is in Kalimdor. :( Any ideas on fixing this or is it just not included yet?

  • #25

    The only Auction House I have found personally in Panda land is only avalible to engineers....

    So there is a good chance that it's not lying to you... Unless you are an engineer.

    You are using Carbonite, v5.0.5.001 which is very much outdated now...

    Try updating and see if you get the same errors...

  • #9

    Can I add a goto with a slash command?

    I know the zones and coords of all the candy buckets in pandaria and would like carbonite to create a route for me between them, but I need to add the goto's first.

    the old way was to use /carb gotoadd ... but with this new release it supports /way to do it.
