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:

    Update is coming for 4.0.3a right?
  • #675
    If you don't use the Curse Client, just go to the WoWAce site, and download the latest alpha manually.
  • #673
    Right click on Mapster in the Curse Client and set your "Preferred Release Type" to "Alpha".

    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!

    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 =)

    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.
