About Flight Map and Time

About Flight Map and Time

Flight Map and Time is all about the flights you take in the World of Warcraft. It draws lines on the continent maps, showing you visually where you can fly from each zone as you mouse over them, as well as showing a window listing all the available destinations, their costs and their flight durations. On the zone level map, flight masters appear as small boot icons, allowing you to see where they are. During flights, a castbar-alike progress bar will show you how long is left on your current journey. Formerly known as (Dhask's) FlightMap and Flight Map, the new name reflects it's flight timing capabilities which are also an important part of the addon.

Usage notes

Use /fmap or /flightmap to bring up the options window. Here you can set whether you want to see unknown flights on the map (most of you want this) and other tweaks. Type "/fmap hardreset" if you want to restore factory settings to your currently logged-on faction. This may be needed if your user-database in the SavedVariables contains outdated flight nodes. Type "/fmap lock" to prevent Flight Map from trying to record new flight times. The timer bar is movable if you hold down SHIFT and drag it.

What's new in 5.1.0

  • Now called Flight map and Time, since it has always included flight timing as one of it's core features!
  • Half hill flight master moved. If, despite my best efforts, you get a duplicate Half Hill showing, send me your savedvariables/flightmap.lua and I'll fix it!
  • Misc database updates
  • first attempt at partial Italian translation
  • Please report any bugs you encounter by Creating a ticket on curseforge

About release 5.0.3

Finally got rid of all the obsolete flight points, fixed some tooltip bugs and made the addon Mists of Pandaria compatible! Even included a lot of Pandaria data courtesy of Taryth. If you want to help improve the flight database, simply send your FlightMap.lua from savedvariables to me via PM! Additional improvements planned, stay tuned!

About release 4.2.1

This release brings back the Flight Master POI in the Zone Maps. A dash of colour is added for good measure (Neutral remains green, Alliance is now blue and Horde is now Red). May still contain an odd number of obsolete flight points, please keep reporting them. I hope to finish weeding for 4.3.

About release 4.1.0-beta2

This release includes a serious bug fix in the load order of files which prevented the default flight data from loading properly. I have now automated a good chunk of the flight data maintenance, and it should be easier for me now to keep up with changes. I hope to have weeded out all obsolete flight points, errorsand duplicates. If you find any of the above, please let me know.

About release 4.0.1-beta

many bugfixes contributed by Brad Morgan and Urbin. Also new are two added commands: "/fmap repair" and "/fmap hardreset". The repair option will try to repair your database (by adding default flights not present in previous versions) while keeping your existing flight times intact. This means the repair option is safe to use. The second option is a very drastic measure; hardreset will restore all flight times to their factory setting. Hardreset is therefore recommended only when your own flight database contains obsolete flight points. Beta may or may not contain specific flight notes and/or outdated flight times. Use at your own volition and risk. Update brought to you by Moncai.

About release: 3.3.3-beta 2

This release includes three new flightpaths and a fix for the timer window. The second beta adds optionally larger timer frame, options window now showing on using /fmap and minor bug fixes. The update is brought to you by the author of Moncai Compare and Moncai Quest Tracker.

Known bugs

  • Timing may or may not get messed up when going to a battleground or dungeon in mid-flight and then resuming the flight afterwards. I'm working on a reliable way to detect this.

    Thanks for the fix. now it is perfectCool

  • #1059

    Since the latest beta is far superior to the 4.0.1 release version, I'm going ahead and tag it as the 4.2 release. I am aware some flight points need to be deleted and others added (Please report them!) but I have to postpone that to version 4.3. 

    Happy flying!

  • #1058

    Thank you for the update!

  • #1055

    2 months have passed again and still no update.

    Please let us know if you ever plan on fixing this addon, or if we might as well find a similar addon instead.

  • #1056

    I already told you that, still working on it! However, real life hasn't treated me with much spare time the last few months, I hope you understand. If you load out of date addons it even still works for the most part! The bug that some region maps do not show the flight master poi is a tough one. But rest assured that there will be an 4.3 update, maybe even sooner.

  • #1062

    I asked about an update because on July 4. the author posted "working on a 4.2 fix".

    I have the greatest respect for the work the addon developers are doing for free, but since no fix was made here 4 months after the patch, I just wanted to know if it was ever going to happen.

    I have had many of my addons just being abandoned without a word from the author, and there really isn't any reason to keep waiting for an update, if it is never going to happen.

    But anyway, thanks for the update :)

  • #1057

    Moncai, dont worry about those type of people. Most of us do understand and are waiting. I do seem to recall you saying something about having to maybe rewrite the whole thing (now that would be time consuming), you also have RL issue's, want to play the game (as well as other games) and you only do this for ease of use.

    With all that there is also another contect release comming up (so most add-ons will probably need to be updated) and early next year the expansion (as i believe they had already started working on it before announcing it) which would be 1.5yrs roughly since cata was released (baring any setbacks).

    You will release when your ready and able and not before.

    Have fun and happy gaming to you.

  • #1053
    Really miss this addon working.
  • #1054
    Yeah, I can't find another addon that can do exactly the same.
    I really miss my icons on the zone maps :(
  • #1052
    Hey guys,

    Haven't forgotten about you, I've just been terribly busy. I hope to fix some things soon!
  • #1048
    still shows some dead flight points:
    Camp Taurajo, The barrens 44,59
    Freewind Post, Thousand Needles 45, 49
    Bloodvenom Post, Felwood 34,53
  • #1049
    That's only the horde side, For Alliance is Southshore, Auberdine & a few others.
  • #1051
    Thanks for the reports, hope to weed these out for next release!
  • #1044
    I dont know what is up on this one, but I'd thought I would mention it. Flight Map allows me to see all the FP's but right now I am flying to stonard, and I have never been there or even activated it.

    Also took mod off and they are all still there. I have my thoughts about how it querys the server, but thats a whole block of text with that one.
  • #1045
    thats not mod related

    after last weeks maintenance some chars had all flight paths unlocked for unknown reason

    my newest char that had never been to most of them also suddenly had access to every single FP, but it only "affected" this one char on my account
