About Rare Spawn Overlay

Rare Spawn Overlay Places colored locations of areas on the map where certain rares can be found.

Notice for RSO 5.2

Added Warbringer and Warscout paths, and Uldum Camel Statue Spawn Locations

Notice

I'm thinking on making maps for the 60 and lower zone rares, but would like input if this is something i should do, please leave comment or send a pm.

Thanks, Colonyl3


Shades the area of the Rare Spawns, in Outlands, Northrend, Cataclysm, and Pandaria zones.

Commands:

/rso [on/off/toggle]

This addon is best used in conjunction with http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/silver-dragon, i prefer this addon for scanning rares, cause you can set it to rescan every few minutes for rares with out needing to log and clear the cache folder. Works awesome on timeless isle, where rare respawn anywhere from 20 to an hour.

Known issue with Carbonite and ElvUI conflicting, will work on fixing it, if anyone might know a way, please send me a message, on the website or ingame @ Rapsheet (Malfurion-Horde)

    Can you please make the text on Timeless Isle White so the names don't conflict wth the names of areas on the Isle. Other then that great work....

  • #292

    Yeah i wanted to do white text, but the way it currently setup it comes out faded unless i do multiple layer options. im still kinda new to lua programing. im taking time right now to learn lua and python scripting. hopefully can do a major overhaul and make the addon lighter weight and nicer looking with more features

  • #289

    i love it :)

    1 q: i use ElvUI w Enhanced tools... RSO sits in the middle of the screen :/ how can i move it away?

    Hello, yeah im not surprised that there might be a problem, most UI addons like ElvUI and Carbonite, that take over the mapping will have a conflict with this addon. i will be looking into it, im hoping to team up will vall and the current manager/author of NPCScan.Overlay, Torhal. and help get that one updated and i know that one works fine with ElvUI and Carbonite. But for now this the only one to have the isle of thunder and timeless ilse in colored overlays

  • #286

    Any way to match colors with what NPCScan Overlay uses?  And I liked being able to turn off individual paths...oh well, guess I'll try to get used to the way it is now.

  • #287

    I tried to match the colors from the npc scan ones as much as i could. And i liked being able to turn off each path, but the way the overlays are done,each overlay file is 1.3MB no matter if it has 1 path or 27 paths, so for when it only had bc and wrath rares made the addon folder 62MB. The way i redid the overlay maps to include bc up to timeless isle made it only 44MB. if i was to make every rare path switchable from bc to timeless isle, the addon folder would be pushing 153MB(roughly).

  • #288

    Torhal told me that he'd be working on updating NPCScan and NPCScan overlay in the very near future. If that doesn't happen we'll port the NPCScan functionality into this addon so we'll have toggleable paths, etc. That said there is the outside chance I'd take over NPCScan and NPCScan overlay too.

    Color zones need to be shown on the minimap too. other than that, it is not so bad for starting :) good work

  • #285

    Unfortunately im not sure how to link the overlay to display on the minimap.

    Rare Spawn Overlay Update

    I just uploaded the much needed update, and waiting on curse to approve the files, its not the prettiest right now, any suggestions will be awesome, i plan on tweaking it here and there to make it more refined looking.

    Hello Guys, i've been working on updating this addon, due to me not about to figure out how to add paths in  the NPCScan.Overlay. Currently i got all the maps working from BC rares and to timeless isle, its not perfect ot pretty. im just fine tuning the layouts, should have something ready by the 20th.

  • #280

    How big is the addon now that you're adding more routes?

  • #282

    I've actually made it lighter, from 62mb down to 44mb in size, at sacrificing the option to turn off each of the rare paths.

  • #278

    why is it i cant use it?? itrying to do /rso on... and its say i cant?? any1 thre can help?
