Localization

What does it do?

World Map & Minimap Display

Displays a (!) on your world map and minimap where quest givers appear in game (if an NPC has more then 1 location, the mark on the map is averaged so it might not be spot on all the time). Icons can be hidden on each map individually and also based on if you are tracking low level quests.

Quest History

As you complete quests and EveryQuest logs them, the minimap and world map update and remove completed quests from being displayed.

Integration

Due to the nature of this being a module of EveryQuest, you can filter what gets shown on maps using EveryQuest filters. Additional category filters are made available for just the Quest Givers module. Any NPC can be sent to TomTom or hidden (by setting the quests that the NPC gives to ignored status in EveryQuest) by right clicking the icon on the World Map.

Filters

The Quest Givers module uses EveryQuests filtering system along with additional category filters on the Quest Givers option pane. You can also set Quest Givers to ignore EveryQuest's status filter and use its own status filter (Hides all completed and in progress quests).

    This may seem like an odd request but would you please implement (if you can, not sure how much is done by Handynotes) an option to change the mark used for the quest-givers from the quest giver mark. My issue that I have allowing this program to run while I am currently questing is not being able to easily tell where I can actually currently get quests vs people who have quests that I can't actually get it now.
  • #41
    The image used for the icon is stored in the /Artwork subdirectory, and is named quest.tga

    You can replace that image, and it will use your replacement as the questgiver icon. For instance, I copied GoldGreenDot.tga from the TomTom addon, and renamed it Quest.tga. Now, the questgivers appear as little green dots, instead of the confusing !
  • #42
    By the way, if you use that same image, setting the icon size to 1.75 and the alpha to .5 makes the green dots easily visible on your map, but makes it extremely simple to see the real quest giver icons through them.

    What I would like is an option to draw the icons on the main map, but not on the minimap. That way, I could open my main map to check out the location of quest givers I've missed, but without the confusing clutter on my minimap.
  • #45
    Definitely. (and/or just building into the code the ability to change the image and alpha from in-game)
  • #34
    Help~!

    if you disable something, disable it completely :D otherwise addon crashes if you don't have LibQTip somewhere.

  • #23
    I was going to download this since it was featured on a fan site, but after reading into this, I have came to understand that the author of this is a jerk.
    "Cartographer is dead, I will not be supporting it"
    "Push a beta because people can't use the alpha apparently."

    Enough said.
    Hey author, grow up. It's not all about you.
  • #25
    As far as the developers of cartographer are concerned cartographer /is/ dead (and broken) as of WoW 3.3.0. I can't blame the guy for not wanting to waste time and effort to add support for a dead/broken mod. Even with cartographer being the best map mod I've ever found (imo).

    Sure, "Push a beta because people can't use the alpha apparently.", wasn't the nicest way to put it but is is the truth. Most people don't understand the rather vast differences between Release, Beta, and Alpha. :/

    He doesn't have to "grow up" if he doesn't want to, it is his choice, whether the rest of society likes it or not. Also, in this case it is all about him as it is /his/ addon.
  • #21
    I love the addon, but would it be a huge amount of work to have it aware of the current holiday (or if there is any), and use that to hide/show season quests?
  • #20
    Is there any way you can disable the exclamation marks on the mini-map? Or can you add an option to do that?
