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.

Features

  • 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:

    i followed the instructions on shadowtreedruid's post, and, the map works without errors all the time. 

    If mapster isn't updated soon, I might check out OmegaMap...

  • #1004

    For now, you might be able to fix the issue by commenting out (putting two dashes "--" in front of) the following line numbers:

    132-142, 156-158, 449, 453-454, 511, 513-514, 545-552, 791-793, 812, 821-822

    I know thats alot of lines, but it seems to be a stop gap solution for me until Nevcairiel has time to get to it.

    This will remove the dropdowns that were in the previous version of mapster and just use the new blizzard drop down that allows tracking of Digsites, Pet Trainers and Quest Objectives.

  • #1003

    Indeed it seems pretty broken right now. Have a sneaky feeling Blizz did some unannounced changes to it's Map interface...

    I started using Mapster because I could get a borderless, transparent map where I could see under it. I was not getting this at all, AND trying to switch from big to mini map basically made it go away until I hit M again. My borderless map seemed gone, BUT I played with setting and got it back.

    This is now the second add-on (among the VERY few I use) where someone NOT the author has stepped in to fix an issue. I DO understand that it's really a work of love for the author... but maybe we can get some word from him that it is being officially abandoned? Or turned over to someone who can continue to maintain it?

  • #1002

    Thanks for the excellent addon! I've been using it since Cartographer died out :)

    I'd like to report that I can no longer show quest blobs on the map without showing the quest tracker pane. I'm not sure what variable got changed when I updated, but I've rolled back to every version back to the 1.4.2 version. The lower right corner of the map where 'show quest objectives' should be located only shows map options. I can turn on the quest objectives from here, but only if I want the quest tracker pane, which I don't. 

    I do also seem to be noticing Mapster throwing up errors when minimizing/returning to normal size, and it doesn't close when pressing escape anymore, as mentioned above.

    Thanks for taking a look at this and thanks again for such a great addon!

  • #1001

    New Version is completely broken. Really frustrating. 

  • #999

    Pressing Esc while the map is open no longer closes the map.  There a way to fix this?

    I can not resize my map anymore. That is the case since the latest big patch. I hoped for a sollution. Any chance that this get fixed in the near future?

    Great lightmap World Map replacement! Just an opinion, if you could add an option to change the Strata it would be even greater :). Because sometimes it covers up other panes, like Quest Pane, Character Pane and PVP/Instance Pane :)

    Mapster and the Isle of Thunder

    Mapster seems to be having problems with "Fog of War" on the Isle of Thunder. Without Mapster loaded, the Blizzard map shows all of the Isle explored. With Mapster, the Upper 1/2 of the Isle shows as unexplored.

    With 5.2, when I open up the map, the "ping" around the player arrow that used to show where I was is gone. This "ping" feature was incredibly useful especially with all the mining/herbing nodes that clutter the map with gathermate. Was this a feature of mapster or another addon? Thanks in advance!
