About ZoneLevel

Credit for original code The Nerd Wonder

Welcome to ZoneLevel's page. Thank you for checking out our addon and let us give you some inside on what it does.

ZoneLevel simply makes an icon on your screen, this icon is drag-able and can be placed anywhere you want it. The icon on mouse-over will show you level of the zone, how much exp you have, and how much more you need to level. The icon will also change color's depending on your level to the zone.

ZoneLevel will also display your zone and level on the world map, and display the level of the zone you are currently viewing. We are working on a way for you to shut this off if you like. Also ZoneLevel will do a bunch of other small things, such as show fps, honor, your current level, todays honor/kills, and display cords.

Slash Command's
Command options: /zonelevel or /zlvl. Using either will automatically open up the new options panel located inside the default blizzard option panels.

Special Thanks

    I've updated the mod for 4.2. I'm not currently getting errors. If you are still getting errors, please post the error in the comments section and I'll look at it.
  • #36
    I know a lot of people are getting the error that when you login there is a small circle in the middle of the screen and hovering over it produces two lua errors.

    Although not a great solution, personally I am using a small macro or slash command to get rid of the button in the center causing my errors.

    To do this enter the following into the chat box or make it into a macro:

    /script ZoneLevelBase:Hide()

    This will make the dot disappear completley, however you can still see the zone information on your map screen.

    Hope this help until a more pernament fix has been made :).
  • #35
    First off, thank you for this handy add-on. Since the last WoW patch (or maybe the one before) it's stopped working for me. I don't receive any errors, but the tool tip doesn't appear when hovering over the ZoneLevel icon and I can't get any of the /zlvl commands to work. I deleted ZoneLevel from my Addons folder and deleted all the ZoneLevel .lua files and re-extracted the latest files.

  • #30
    Zone levels for instances is in the works I would imagine. As of right now, every instance I enter comes as the followings:
    Zone level for "the botanica" unknown. Please let me know what's in the quotes so we can get this fixed. Thanks! for example.
  • #31
    That is weird. Let me double check the tables, I thought for sure I had them in there.


    P.S. Beta link is here for ZoneLevel2. It doesn't have the features that ZoneLevel has yet, but we are working 100% to get it up and functional and make it bigger and better.
  • #29
    Beta addon is up over at WoWI. Working on improvements and additions as I write this.
  • #27
    2 or 3 things that missing in this addon
    fishing zones
    reccommanded zones lvl or instances like the addon of the same name ( disappear since 2 or 3 years now )
  • #28
    Gathering level of zones I think I released it for about 2-3 updates but it caused a ton of issues and was bugging the addon out for every update. I choose to take it out to make it a more stable addon at the time. I don't think recommended zone's ever made it into the addon. I know I was working on it at one time but I don't think it ever made final cut.

    I've been working on a re-write of ZoneLevel for awhile now with it going into beta on Monday. This re-write of the addon will have all this stuff added into it with time to come. I'm focusing on making ZoneLevel a better addon.

    I will keep in mind with adding the gathering zone levels to the addon again with hopes to keep it bug free and the recommended zone's/dungeons will be in there for sure.

    Again, thanks for using the addon and suggesting new features. I'm hoping that I can expand on the addon and make it more flexible for anyone and any level.

    Thanks =)

    I think what they mean by the map text not showing up is that it doesn't show up in the minimized, movable world map. If you set the map back to full screen with the quest tracker you can see the map text in the upper left hand corner, but if you use the smaller, movable map more often (like me) there is no zone text readily apparent. Maybe if there is some way to modify it so the map text is visible in the same place on the smaller world map that would be fantastic. Or maybe a viable/alternate solution would be showing text on the zone map.
  • #25
    Are you using a specific addon that modifies the map?
  • #26
    I can not reproduce this error using the default map. If you are using any other map addon that it does not support, please let me know and I will work on adding the functionality to it. I think it supports Carbonite, pMap and a few others.
  • #21
    I cant get the levels to show up on the big map. I even tested it by deleting all my addons and just having zonelevel. I then, in game, typed "/zlvl maptext" it said it showed it, but it wasn't there. I even reloaded it with "/zlvl 1" and it still wasn't there. I am on a US server.
