About MiniHugeHUD

LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO TAKE OVER

I am now looking for someone who loves this addon to take it over as I no longer play. :( Contact me if your interested (Zasurus).

Overview

I always found that I spent to long looking at the minimap for where I was in comparison to quest hand-ins etc. SO I created MiniHugeHUD! It basically takes your minimap, hides the background (the map part but don’t worry you can easily bring it up for a sec to check stuff!) and stretches it over your whole screen!

As you walk around all the points on your minimap like banks, mailboxes and in fact ANYTHING you can track with the minimap tracker (now even TARGETS and Focus!) will appear on your screen as if you are looking down on them with you in the centre.

It may sound complex but it isn’t! If it’s at the top of the map then it’s in front of you if it’s towards the bottom its behind you. Left is to the left of you and you get it…

SO if you want to go hand in a quest of mine a titanium mine just turn until the icon is in the top centre of the screen and walk forward till your on it! Simple as that...

AND with the new version (V2.0.0+) it doesn’t require SexyMap to work (although still works just as well WITH SexyMap) and has load more options and skins... LIKE a cool spinning Radar effect!

You can control the colours and design of EVERYTHING! And I am adding more all the time.

SO Give it a GO!

Suggestions

  • If you don't use an addon to grab all your minimap Icons then you won't be able to access them while the HUD is up (as the minimap is hidden) so I suggest you get an addon to do this. I recommend "Minimap Button Frame" (not mine) and as I use it my self you will know it will always work with MiniHugeHUD! ;)
  • If you also use SexyMap then I suggest you also get my fix for SexyMap that lets MiniMap Button Frame grab the Minimap Tracker as it won't release it otherwise! :( The fix is: "SexyMap Tracker Button Fix (Minimap Button Frame)" (Another amazing name I am sure you will agree! :P).

Extra Features

  • Auto Enable/Disable on entering/leaving buildings & Caves
  • Hold down a button to interact with the minimap’s icons AND optionally show the full minimap background (with any transparency) over the entire screen. Let go of the button and it disappears so you can continue as you where!
  • Integrates with GatherMate2, Routes (more coming!) so those points and routes can be displayed as well!

Problems & Suggestions

If you have a suggestion or bug then PLEASE add a ticket here.

That way it will help me keep track of stuff I need to do. Also it will allow other people to vote on them, for example with bugs, people can say that this bug is more important that the other one or that they want/don’t want certain functionality someone has requested. Finally it keeps all the comments together for each bug or new functionality AND people can subscribe to each ticket individually to tell you when something has been fixed!

    Good news I'm BACK! Well ish! LOL I am not playing but am making addons... Let's see how far I can do with trial accounts! ;)

    I am now working on a complete rewrite for this addon to fix the two tickets:

    Make Standalone (SexyMap free):
    http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/minihugehud/tickets/1-make-standalone-sexy-map-free/

    Add the Cardinal Points N,E,S,W:
    http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/minihugehud/tickets/5-add-the-cardinal-points-n-s-e-w/

    As this will make it work without SexyMap I will be able to do more (as it will all be my code) so ideas please in the form of tickets here: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/minihugehud/tickets/

    Thanks

    is this compateble with gathermate?
  • #19
    Yup and GatherMate2! :)
  • #16
    Sexymap HUD is broken beyond usability.
    Upon turning HUD map, minimap is switching to mode where it turns with my char .. making gathermate unusable (gathermate pins no longer show on hud)
    In HUD mode, nodes are "unstable"... once showing once not (while moving) or blinking (when in not moving).

    Hoped this one is fixing something, but not =S.

    I was having the same issue.  I poked around a bit and found it was a conflict issue with another addon that had a minimap in it's ui.  For me, this was Shestak UI.  When I disabled the minimap from Shestak, the hud worked perfectly.  Hope this helps!

    Sorry for the late reply (not playing currently). I have just tried and it all looks fine to me... :|

    Can you try disabling any other addons (bar sexymap) and see if that helps.
    Also ensure you have the newest version of both SexyMap and MiniHugeHUD.

    If there are still problems then please submit a ticket here: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/minihugehud/tickets/

    Thanks

    I love this. Great Idea, but my only thing would be if it would not disable SexyMap. At least give the option to have both enabled.
  • #18
    Soz this is a limit of WoW. If you enable both it will go mad and flick between them! LOL Looks a mess and can't be used... :(

    I have tried loads to get them both but the bliz code is just not designed for it and that part of the code I can't replace soz...
  • #12
    Great - only problem is I've no idea which direction I'm facing lol. How about adding just the cardinal points (N, S, E & W)?
  • #13
    Well if you need direction you can tell MiniHugeHUD to "AutoEnable SexyMapHUD" instead. The only thing you get extra you didn't ask for is the circle. :)

    If you want this feature though add a ticket and I will... oh you just have! LOL OK will look at it when I get time! ;)

    You could have just turned the opacity all the way to 0% and achieved this same effect without an extra addon.
  • #9
    When the mod is enabled the function "let sexymap manage button dragging/visibility" is getting bugged. Also sometimes when I rebuff with the weapon enchants on my shaman, the buff bar is going to the very right of the screen, like there's no map and after hiding the mod isn't going back.
    Besides of that the addon is great.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is still an issue, but I love this add on! I definitely put up with this glitch, as annoying as it is, because your add on is something I've been looking for for a long time, so thanks again, and I look forward to more updates! /bow
  • #10
    I have just finished a huge update to this! Go check out V0.3.0 Beta and see if that fixes all your issues. If not raise a ticket (if you can't find a relevent one) and I will get on fixing it (with your help that is! ;))

    Zasurus, this mod is exactly what I've been looking for. I am a miner, and when a ore node is found, there's only a small dot on my tiny minimap. I need some kind of large alert on the screen.
