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:

    For some strange reason, the addon isn't working for me at all.

    Usually, Mapster changes the entire UI of my map, and this isn't happening even remotely.

    Try reading the replies?  I already posted the fix.


    "Go into mapster.lua and comment out (add two dashes in front of) lines 87, 88, and 89.  Mapster will once again work."

    ...This is HILARIOUS, because I DID read the replies... But I'm a Java programmer, so when you said to comment out those lines of code, I did //


    LOL. Fail.

  • #870

    So what exactly are you commenting out cause it's not working for me.  (As in the exact line that are getting commented out not the line number)

  • #866

    Just wanted to say thanks for this fix, has it working fairly well which is much appreciated as the standard map seems to be very small at the moment!

  • #864

    I am not getting any errors, but mapster is not showing the coords. And yes I do have it enabled

  • #862

    This quick fix solved 30+ lue errors.


    Thanks mate!


  • #861

    Go into mapster.lua and comment out (add two dashes in front of) lines 87, 88, and 89.  Mapster will once again work.

  • #859

    It would appear that CVAR advancedWorldMap has been removed from the API; this is throwing an error with Mapster as of 4.3.

    Just a heads-up. :)

  • #856

    Hey, 2 things, the addon conflics with MozzFullWorldMap and just crashes the map and have to relog with Mozz disabled, also in the second preview picture of this addon, you have faded out everything aroud the the acual map, i loved that feature in cartographer but i cannot find an option for this in Mapster, please help

  • #857

    don't worry about the fade feature sorry i was in stormwind and forgot it doesn't apply,

  • #855

    Happy the addon is finally updated, but why is Firelands not included in the cataclysm raid maps?


  • #854

    Nice to see it's alive! Thanks \o/
