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:

    How do I get the minimised map to have all the unneeded gfx hidden (like in the 2nd ime "Minimized Map without Borders")

    Here is a screen shot of my options.. NOTE that the "Hide Border" (witch is what I think i need to use) is Greyed out... Any ideas?
  • #812
    How do I move the minimised map? It is stuck in the middle of my screen... I looked though the thread and tehre are a ton of peopel asking this but no one is answering (I got to page 10)
  • #813
    Ok.. fixed!!!

    You need to UNTICK "(mini) Hide Boarder" and UNTICK "(mini)Disable Mouse"... you can not move it at will.. just untick them when it is positioned I guess...
  • #817
    Obviously if the mouse is disabled you can't move it; that's just logical. You can have the border hidden, but to move it you click and hold where the border would be to drag it around. There are a couple parts of the border that you can't click on to move it whether it is hidden or not. I don't know why it is programmed like this, but it is easy to find those areas when the border is visible.
  • #811
    well as suggested several posts below, nothing is fixing the M button, it still hides the minimap.
  • #808
    Hi, congrats on this new version, it really works well.

    The ONLY problem and the ONLY thing i miss about Mapster who i really loved over the years, it's the fact that Class Colored dots are not working on Battleground map. They are working on Minimap and Worldmap, but not on the Battleground map. I remember back in the day, they were working and i really can't do BG's without them.

    I'd appreciate if u'll fix that, it's the only thing Mapster is still misssing to be the Mapster i loved.

    Thanks in advance.
  • #810
    ya i really miss this also
    i ran an old version for months in which EVERYTHING ELSE was broken EXCEPT the battlefield minimap, and i happily ran it like that because the battlefield minimap was the only thing i cared about

    but after 4.1 not even that worked so i had to update, i really miss that battle map...
    thats the only reason i got the addon
  • #807
    When I try to place raid markers from the new Blizzard raid UI, I am told that Mapster was blocked and I must disable it to use the raid markers. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
  • #806
    can you move the Minimized Map? its stuck in the middle of my screen
  • #805
    go to your in game on on fog clear...check the debug box...hit the resest fogclear data button...restart your UI...WORKS!
  • #803
    Unfortunately neither reinstall nor deleting any config files fixes the "M = alt-z" bug for me. I have it and ElvUI installed, nothing else. No matter what I do, hitting "M" or the minimap map button hides the UI. If someone finds a specific fix, please post it, I'll check back, otherwise, at least on my friends, mine and my wife's computer, this addon is useless. Ah well.
  • #804
    mapster. Turn off fog clear. Reload UI. Hit "M". See if it works. Turn fog clear back on if it does.
  • #800
    Where is that configuration file what you mean ? i can't find anything - pls help !... When i open the map with M i get nothing
  • #802
    In my case, I installed WoW in D:\World of Warcraft.
    so the configuration file is placed in
    D:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Mapster
  • #799
