About OmegaMap

OmegaMap is a scalable, moveable, transparent WorldMap that the user can have on screen while they continue to play and interact with the world. It is based off of the old AlphaMap addon but re-written from the ground up using the Wow 4.x/5.x map code.


Features include:

  • A scalable, moveable, transparent WorldMap
  • Options to display quests POI on the map with a hideable quest objective window
  • Option to display Archeology dig sites
  • Option to display Dungeon Boss Icons
  • Option to display alternate Minimap textured maps of Battlegrounds, Caves, and Dungeon Exteriors
  • Native support for displaying MapNotes, Gatherer, Gathermate2, CTMapMod, TomTom, Routes, _NPCScan.Overlay, QuestHelper Lite, PetTracker
  • Moveable HotSpot which brings up the map on mouseover.
  • "Compact Mode" will only show explorable areas of the map. Unexplored parts will have a slight tint to them . Note: Due to how Blizzard makes their maps, there is not a compact mode for every map.
  • OmegaMap now saves position and scale for Battlegrounds independent of the normal map. Just enter a BG and position the map, It will then switch when entering and leaving BGs.

Alternate BattleGround Maps:

Minimap textured maps of Battlegrounds displaying all player units, and Battleground flags/objectives. Right Clicking on the Map POI icons or icons in the not list will bring up a list of Commands to broadcast to the raid group. IE "Fall back to Black Smith" or "Farm Undefended." Left clicking will bring up Zerg Alerts to broadcast to the raid, IE 1,2,3,.. or "Zerg incoming to Farm". or "Farm OK!". For Capture the Flag Games, Right Clicking on the Flag Carrier icon will bring up Flag Carrier Alerts to Broadcast. IE "Alliance Flag Headed East" or "Horde Flag at Alliance Roof"

Exteriors & Caves :

Minimap textured maps for the following caves and dungeon exteriors (the area before the portal): Auchindoun, Blackfathom Deeps, Coilfang Reservoir, Dire Maul, Karazhan, Sunken Temple, Crumbling Depths & Temple of Earth in Deepholm, The Molten Flow daily area in the Firelands. All the above alternate maps have notes detailing key locations, mobs, etc. Note: Many of the exterior maps were removed in V1.1 due to Blizzard adding actual maps for the areas.

    Pretty good addon, but why does it always reset to my current location while i'm on the map looking at different areas?

  • #77

    What other map addons do you use?  Usually that is caused by another map addon trying to set the map to the current zone.


  • #79

    I'll look into it when I have some free time and see if I can figure out a fix.


  • #78

    i'm not sure what its called but its whatever elvui addon uses.

  • #75

    I am having a problem displaying nodes on the map when I have GatherMate2 and OmegaMap running. The nodes dissapear from my map and minimap unless the option in GatherMate2 for tracking nodes is set to always show. When I set it to only on profession or only when tracking they dissapear. This happens with only GatherMate2 and OmegaMap loaded and with other addons loaded as well.

  • #74

    Thanks for the heads up,  I'l look into it and try to get a fix out as soon as I can.

  • #63

    When I am in a battleground, for example Alterac Valley, then I would like to see the map of the valley without the legenda on the right side. 

    With Alphamap I just placed the legenda beyond the screenborder to the right so that the legenda was out of screen. And just the map was there, nicely placed in the corner.

    But with Omega map it cant be shifted out of screen.

    Could you perhaps make an option to hide the legenda? Or make it possible to place it off the screen?


  • #61

    There should be a red arrow at the top left of the Battleground legend area that will close/hide it when clicked.

  • #68

    Should be doable.  I'll look into it and see what can be done.

    Quote from Gathirer »

    There should be a red arrow at the top left of the Battleground legend area that will close/hide it when clicked.

    I found the arrow, but as far as I know (game is down at the moment) it wont shrink the legend area. Only the legend text disappears but it wont shrink to just the maparea.

    If it only could be possible to place it abit off the screen side, that would be nice.

    Mapster Comparison?

    Hello! I am wondering if OmegaMap is a suitable replacement for Mapster?  It does seem to have much of the functionality, from what I read.  Is there anything it lacks compared to Mapster, in terms of features? Thanks!

  • #67

    I've never used Mapster, but based on its Curse page, OmegaMap should be able to be used as a Mapster replacement. As for functionality it appears that both have the majority of the same features, it appears as the main diffrence is that Mapster modifies the default world map, while OmegaMap creates a seperate map.

    Heya Gathirer,

    Having an issue with OmegaMap, this just started happening and I've made no changes to my machine. When I open Omegamap AND I have quests to go do, on the map the "Blue fields" show where to go to complete said quest. However, when I close Omegamap, everything closes and goeas away, exepct those "Blue Fields". They stay on my game screen. The only way to get rid of those blue fields from my game screen is to either:

    1. Complete the quest

    2. Abandoned the quest

    3. Open Omegamap, zone out to the continent view (where there are no "Blue Fields" and close the map in that view

    4. log out and back in.

    Either way, it's rather annoying. ANy help would be greatly appriciated. Thank you
