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:

    For some reason when I combine Mapster with TomTom ctrl-right clicking on the quest objectives offsets the waypoint. Any ideas on how I might fix this? If I turn off Mapster then TomTom sets the waypoint in the right place.
  • #291
    Is it possible to enable the World Map as 'original fullscreen'?
    Also, as a request, would it be possible to put friends' coordinates on the Map (like Cartographer does/did)?
  • #286
    Does Mapster support classic instances such as Razorfen Downs, Scarlet Monastery, etc.? I have the instance map checked, but I can't access these maps in or out of the instance.
  • #293
    Would like to know this also.
  • #275
    i am having a issue, when in a dungeon i set focus on a toon and mapster crashes is there a fix for this? i have to reload it after i am out of dungeon.
  • #272
    sho0eepyman9, stfu man. Damn keylogger, it's so obvious with you're horrible grammar skills really. I've seen these idiots post on a lot of addon's comments, why are they not banned yet?
  • #270
    Is there a way to make mapster show the lvl interval of zones?
  • #267
    Noob question maybe but is there a way for me to make my arrow and my group members blips more visible on the main map like Party Spotter? Or do I need to go back to using Party Spotter and if so is it compatible with Mapster?
  • #259
    MoonWynx said "How do I get the damn thing to stop spamming my chat?" I think I'm having the same problem. Whenever I open it it says all the subzones in the place.
  • #256
    I like this add-on so far except for I have been in a couple of instances and when I hit the map it shows the world map....the only reason I downloaded this addon was for the cooridinates and so I could see a map of the instances I run. Maps of instances is enabled so why don't I see anything? I loved cartographer..somebody update it!

    With the lastest version of Mapster, this bug has been corrected.
  • #1106

    It hasn't.

     

    I have the latest version and stil have the exact same problem.

  • #248
    Ok so I finally decided to dump Cartographer and use Mapster and so far I have one very irritating issue. Upon loading for the first time, the Fogclear option was set on "on" by default and now my maps look all cleared, which now is a huge aggravation when trying to figure out if I've cleared the map for the achievement and/or what areas I still have to clear. Is there a way I can reset this? I've turned Fogclear off, but the map remains the same.
  • #245
    Sadly I had to remove this addon because it would stop working when ever I went into an instance, after leaving the instance I had to log out and enable it again then log back in. Another problem I was having was when I would have my quest log open and then I'd open the map all the text would disappear from the quest I had open as well as switching from the small map to the big map would sometimes cause the quest markers on the maps to be in the wrong places. I like the idea of this just a little too buggy, hope it gets worked out because it could be a really nice addon.
