About Mapster

Mapster is a very simple world map enhacement addon, which was designed to work in conjunction with all other map addons out there. The idea to create Mapster originated from pure lack of a simplistic addon that only modifies the world map, without adding a full scale feature set.


  • Map Style (Scale & Alpha)
  • Coordinates
  • Fog of War removal
  • Enhancement of the raid/party group icons
  • Access to the Instance Maps from anywhere!

You can access the Mapster configuration menu through the new button on the world map, as shown in the screenshot. All features (except the style) can be turned off individually if you do not need/want them.

If you're looking for a replacement to Cartographer, i also recommend the following addons:

- Maintenance release with minor fixes

- Added Tanaan Jungle to FogClear

    For some reason, the Fog Clear randomy stops workin and requires a /reload in order to fix it as of 6.2.3.

  • #1199

    Sooooo am I the only one that doesn't see any changes to the map? Mine looks no different and I don't have quest information below the map or any additional information. What am I doing wrong?

  • #1200


    Blind AFK, no, you are not the only one. Same story here. No changes and I don't see any settings to change things. May be obvious to more experienced peeps but a hint or two would be quite appreciated. Anyone know of a map add that has a world map like Carbonite but doesn't but out so many other addons?

  • #1198

    Is ther e away to disable the mapster skinning of the flight map? it seems to crunch all the flight points together. :)  make it much harder to go where you want (more of a problem on azeroth now that there are 19million flight points)

  • #1197

    At least one thing I've noticed since 6.2.2 is that the dropdown box for showing various elements on the map seems to be bugging out. First time I open it on a toon, it shows up just fine with the choices right below the box, second time it appears at the bottom of the screen.

    The box I refer to includes such elements as the option to show dig sites, etc...not sure if this is happening in other places, but I think there might be one or two other odd things happening, I just can't quite put my finger on what they's like seeing something out of the corner of your eye that catches your attention, but when you look you can't figure out what it was O.o

  • #1196

    is there a way to place it as background or Medium layer so that the quest panel is on top of it ?

    For those of you that have cursor location coordinates covering your Mapster button on the World Map, the addon is TomTom:

    Go to TomTom>World Map> Cursor Coordinates and uncheck "Enable showing cursor coordinates."

    Took me awhile to find which one was doing it.  I have a lot of addons and 4 or 5 want to put coordinates on things ;-)

  • #1189

    FogClear doesn't appear to work after patch 6.2.


    If this addon is no longer supported, does anyone know of something similar?


    I've found that adding the following block to the errata table in FogClear.lua seems to make it work again.

    ["TanaanJungle"] = {
    ["DARKPORTAL"] = 146697278797,
    ["DRAENEISW"] = 394148397230,
    ["FANGRILA"] = 421356904791,
    ["FELFORGE"] = 201200950495,
    ["IRONFRONT"] = 283468092625,
    ["IRONHARBOR"] = 66890012861,
    ["KILJAEDEN"] = 25107386733,
    ["KRANAK"] = 100988614994,
    ["LIONSWATCH"] = 336568992014,
    ["MARSHLANDS"] = 411553720566,
    ["SHANAAR"] = 380283185400,
    ["VOLMAR"] = 184135423214,
    ["ZETHGOL"] = 208429903122,
    ["HELLFIRECITADEL"] = 281586943303,


    There may be a subzone or two that's missing from that list but those were the only ones I could find.

    I bet this great mod will be left and thrown on to the scrapheap, i could be wrong but, who knows.
