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.

    I love this addon but it spams my chat box with updates. constantly. whenever i open my map it spams it, and then close my map, and randomly all the time. can you please fix? other then that i absolutely love it.
  • #658
    Best map addon out there! Can I recommend widescreen support? I'd like to have the world map fit my entire screen when I switch to it :D Thanks for your great work!
  • #655
    This may be a nutty question...but when I use Mapster the quest text description is yellow and I basically cant read it. When I see your example posted the lettering is black.

    How do I change the color of the text?
  • #653
    the colored icons arent working in the battlefield minimap anymore
    its just showing default icons

    I always wondered why Mapster seemed so laggy at times. Compared it to cartographer source. And noticed conditionals cartographer used had no code comparisons in Mapster. Upon adding conditionals some supplied by Cartographer itself. Mapster instantly became more responsive and less laggy. My settings are close to max. And a typical zone ran me about 60-77 fps .. while dalaran ran me around 30-40. So I always wondered why when crossing zones and interacting with Mapster (dragging and such). Why I would start lagging. I really can't tell an add-on author what to do, nor is it my place. However, if I can make conditional changes to Mapster that improved its responsiveness. Why can't the author do this in turn ... I am sure they are far better at LUA than I am. Mainly copy and pasted, tweaking code, and trial and error. And now I got the Mapster I always wanted =)
  • #647
    Not to mention this also seems to have helped other add-ons that hooked into the map. For example EveryQuest and showing quest names. When going to an area filled with uncompleted quests, Mapster would lag for a good moment. Since these changes its far more forgiving.
  • #649
    Not saying at all that its a bad add-on. Actually really like it a lot. I could not be without it =)
  • #648
    Even replaced with the original Mapster during these tests to confirm. As soon as I did typical laggy situations occurred. Swapped to the modded version and all was better again.
  • #660
    Dude...Don't just post about how you fixed all this stuff and then not tell us how you fixed it?
  • #659
    Please do share your code and what you've done... I would add these lines in myself. Thank you for helping out...
  • #650
    Care to share the code, maybe the author is unaware of this new method you are using, authors are people too, not perfect by all means but by creating, making available and updating on a regular basis the author is contributing to the community. Help him/her to do better.
  • #645
    I can move the Default map around, but when I'm in Minimized Map, it is locked in the center of the screen blocking the center of my screen. Is there a way to move it around?
  • #641
    In the battleground map, aka Zone Map, the group numbers and color class for raid members icons in BG are gone!!!! bring it back please, it is very important for effective BG. Thanks!
  • #640
    hi, i'ld like to ask about the map icons of party/raid members, on the newer versions i can't see the map (not minimap) icons for party and there are ugly black with colored border squares for the raid (i tryed only on battlegrounds), so, is there a posibility of a fix of it?
