About ZoneLevelInfo

1.8 - pet level database re-implemeted and updated to match Blizzard's including level colours.
Pet levels now show everywhere at all times except for continent view, but pet levels can still be disabled.
Fixed additional map area description text to be on line 5 instead of Blizz default - incl. Tol Barad and pet trainer titles.

UPDATED FOR MISTS OF PANDARIA

Level ranges, zone names and place names are placed in the top left of the main map as you hover over zones.
Also includes pet level (world PvE pet-battle) ranges per zone (optional, default on).
This replaces the standard white map text.

Level colours change from red to grey depending on your level.
Will also highlight if it is a Horde or Alliance levelling zone, as well as PvP combat zones.
Useful for picking your next levelling zone.
Mists of Pandaria ready.
Simple, thin client. No mess.

1.5.0 Includes Mists zone locales for enUS (enGB), deDE, esES (esMX), frFR, ptBR (ptPT), ruRU.
Cata ready: zhTW - zhTW is NOT yet up to date for Mists! Need your help :)
Big thanks to contributors! -> Language Credits

Text size range available: 10-24 (default is 22).
Amend the text size and other options with the slash command:

  • /zli (show options and settings)
  • /zli size 18 (set size 18)
  • /zli outline (toggle text outline)
  • /zli zone (toggles full information shown when on zone zoom-level)
  • /zli pet (toggles wild pet levels for battles)
  • /zli toggle (enables/disables ZoneLevelInfo for the current session)
  • /zli default (reset to default: size:22; outline:ON; zone:ON; pet:ON; toggle:ON)

Hidden advanced options "/zli scale", "/zli indentX", "/zli indentY" for expert users to tweak to their UI addons have been added in 1.4.5.
I do not recommend you change nor do I support the results of changing these values which are by default 100 (percent), 75 and 50 respectively.
"/zli default" will reset these hidden option values as well if you make a mess.

Example of text shown as level 85 hovering over The Sepulcher in Silverpine Forest with "Pet" info enabled:

See images for more examples.

1.8.0

Re-implemented pet level database and updated to match Blizzard's - pet levels now show everywhere (if enabled) except for world view.
Moved world view additional texts to under continent name, and kept continent name showing - instead of just showing extra text in grey as it did in 1.7.
Tol Barad control information and pet trainer title (WorldMapFrameAreaDescription) moved to line 5 instead of showing as default.
Other tidy up/bug fixes and dev assistant code.

1.7.0

Ditched the pet level database in favour of what Blizzard now offers by default - ZLI hides the Blizz default and pulls the default information to place in the same place that 1.6.0 put it, which also shows the colours that Blizzard give.

Gives you the option to turn off the pet levels from the main map, something which I don't think you can do on blizzard.
Option to do this is still: /zli pet

I'm not 100% happy with how it looks at the moment, but I wanted to get a working version out because 1.6.0 on wow 5.1 is quite annoying.

Also:
Tweaked the colours to now match what Blizzard offer (you will hardly notice a difference I think).

If there are any bugs in this please let me know by posting on the curse page!

Cheers!

-----------

1.6.0

Pet levels added - database may need tweaking so your feedback is appreciated here.
Option added: /zli pet
This option toggles pet info on/off. Default is on.
If you toggle it off, it stays off and goes back to how it was before - so no issues.
Sorry, I've only added 'Pet' in English as I wanted to get it out quick, but if you have good short translations for this please let me know and I will add!

If there are any bugs in this please let me know!!

Any problems please post on the curse page.
Cheers!

1.5.0

Database update for Mists of Pandaria using Beta 5.0.4:

  • enUS (incl. enGB)
  • deDE
  • esES (incl. esMX)
  • frFR (also fixed all the other problems I found with that locale!)
  • ruRU
  • ptBR (incl. ptPT)

When patch hits just enable out of date addon, a 5.0 version of this will be released when it goes live.

zhTW is missing all Mists updates - please provide if you can! Thanks!

mode added: /zli dev
Shows ZLI and default Blizz map text to compare if you think something is wrong.
Please report anything you find - I have done my best to check myself.

Any problems please post on the curse page.

ZLI UI
Horde/Alliance zones have had the "Controlled" bit dropped so just reads Horde/Alliance.
Removed 'Staging Area' texts as it is not really needed.

Database
Uldum is 83-84 not 84-85. This has been corrected.

Locales
deDE free-text correction from psprofi, thanks!
No further zone translation problems reported.

Thanks
Anything I haven't caveated please let me know.

1.4.3

ZLI UI

Added zone information at zoom-level toggle.
"/zli zone" will now hide/show the full zone details when zoomed in. When hidden, only extra location detail will appear if you hover over anything of interest (in the same way the standard map text appears).
This setting is saved.

Added ZoneLevelInfo toggle to the slash command.
"/zli toggle" will now disable/enable zone level info. When ZLI is disabled, the standard white map text is re-enabled, and vice-versa.
This setting is not saved, so when you re-load the UI, ZoneLevelInfo will be back on.

Database

Wetlands now properly shows 20-25

Following zones are now HORDE from Contested (as these are not viable levelling areas and no flight points for Alliance):
Hillsbrad Foothills

Following zones are now ALLIANCE from Contested (as these are not viable levelling areas and no flight points for Horde):
Wetlands
Redrige Mountains
Duskwood

Locales

Thanks to Valdesca for the incorrect translations for esES, I have updated the locale file with these !

Thanks
Anything I haven't caveated please let me know.

1.4.2

Got rid of the key, because it just didn't look good (I knew it, you knew it, let's just forget about that one).
Incorporated the zone control detail into line 2, and the additional location detail now appears on line 4 only when you are hovering over something of interest.
Tried to standardise the colours used a bit better.
Capital cities now show the normal way when in world-view.
Sanctuaries are now green.
Additional text for staging areas/non-levelling zones (Moonglade, etc) as it didn't look right having detail on line 4 with nothing on line 3.

I'm fully expecting Maelstrom to break when we are allowed in, seeing as UpdateMapHighlight doesn't seem to work on that continent at the moment.
Will have to deal with that when we're allowed in on Tuesday.

No further language problems reported at this point.

Anything I haven't caveated please let me know.

-----------

1.4.1

Reworked the text so it is more readable with an outline, as well as repositioned so it is off the map-corner art.
Removed (Horde)/(Alliance)/(PvP) text and it is now based on colour.
Added a key to the map for the colours (which can be disabled! see below)
Default text size is now 22.
Defaults have been reset.
Added new options to the /zli command to enable/disable the text outline and key
- "/zli outline" toggles the text outline on the map
- "/zli key" toggles the key on the map
To get it back how it looked before, use settings: size 18, outline OFF, key OFF

Updated the database to match the level flow map referenced on mmo-champion.
http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/2091-Cataclysm-Professions-Level-Flow-Map-Darkmoon-Fortune-MMO-Report

Only one language problem reported, cheers shortyr for deDE "Der Heulende Fjord". Should be fixed now!

Anything I haven't caveated please let me know.

-----------

1.3.1

Further major database update for world break -

  • enUS should work completely
  • all other languages I have done my best and put an entry for everything but I need help in getting the official translations right. Some I have had to guess.
    If you get a list of missing zones, please PM them to me (DJarv) on Curse.com so I can put them in. If you don't it won't ever get fixed as I don't know about it!! :)

Should be a much more robust addon now as well - I have stopped being lazy using loads of globals and put things properly into functions/local variables instead, which means less chance of interfering with other addons, and being interfered with by other addons. Let's pretend 1.2 didn't happen.

Big fix for The Maelstrom as it seems my main way of getting zone names doesn't work on this continent...should be working for now at least though...I used string and sticky-tape. It may break come Cataclysm.

I expect zone levels will need tweaking when the official level ranges are published on the new WoW site.

Other minor changes/fixes improvements...which are too small and numerous to mention.

Anything I haven't caveated please let me know.

-----------

1.2.1

For 4.0.3 it is release version.
For 4.0.3a and beyond (world break) this is more alpha, but 1.2.x is designed to support the new world whereas 1.1.x does not support it at all.

Should be ready for Azeroth break in 4.0.3a, and will hopefully detect it OK (yes, my fingers are crossed).
May be some translation problems for other languages with renamed zones in 4.0.3a.
Further updates to fix that once it happens and there is more detail available to me.

New Zone name translations for Cataclysm are not yet added, so zone level info will not appear for other languages at this point. As soon as the translations are available to me after the release, they will be added.
For enUS (enGB), the new zone info should display ok, but I don't have Cata Beta and so I can't test yet!

Other:
The way the translations and database works has been rewritten to make it easier to maintain.
Some zone levels have been tweaked to match the official wow sites.
New zone type (PvP Combat Zone) added so Wintergrasp (and Tol Barad) will appear in orange.
Default text size changed to 18 from 20.
Fixed a couple of frFR translations - thanks for the heads up Sasmira!

-----------

1.1.2

4.0.x pre-Cataclysm release version.
This version will not display the new/changed zone details properly when they appear.

Changes -
If your mouse is not on the map, it will display the info for the current zone.
Set a min time of 100ms between text refreshes when not moving the cursor.

-----------

1.1.1

Bug fixes -

  • Re-loaded Russian zone names which had been corrupted in the 1.1 release which I had not notice.
  • Made text positioning work better when in windowed mode/showing quest objectives.
  • Re-set to Alliance quest areas after the locale additions: Redridge Mountains, Duskwood, Wetlands, Blasted Lands.
  • Re-set to Horde quest areas after the locale additions: Thousand Needles, Badlands, Swamp of Sorrows.

Enhancements -

  • Added /ZLI slash command to change zone text size (other text is still 75% of this). "/zli size 16" will set to 16 as it was before for example. Available range is 16-24.
  • Increased default text size of zone text to 20.

    I was waiting to see who would be the first to revel in the fact that they could put this down, or if someone would post a friendly heads up. I see you were the former.

    Yep, I'm aware that they are adding it, and depending on how the blizzard one looks I may still be continuing this addon for my own enjoyment, which is why I made it in the first place! :)

    So thanks for your comment, I pity your negative outlook on life.

  • #58
    Hello, it's really a nice addon. However I'm playing on zhCN server. I've already tried add the codes at my client and it works well. I'd like to help to add the locale data for zhCN to your repository and share this great addon with my friends. Could I do that?
  • #59
    Hey, thanks for the message!
    Sure, send me a PM on curse or curseforge with the relevant Z and L entries you added in for zhCN and I'll get it uploaded! :D
  • #57
    Excellent add-on,thank you.
  • #54
    Hello. I'm a level 83 Warlock. Not sure if anyone else is having this issue, the addon makes it to where my pet command bar will not show. I turn the addon off and it reapears. FYI
  • #55
    Hi, I've not been having the same problems on my warlock and I can't replicate the issue. It shouldn't do as it's only hiding the WorldMapDetailText frame, and updating when the WorldMapFrame does.

    Because I can't get it to happen on the default UI, the only thing I can think of is that it's clashing variables with another one of your addons (which again it shouldn't as I thought I had made all my variables local!). If you can work out which addon it is so I can replicate the problem I will have a look.
    Thanks!
  • #52
    Wonderful! Thanks for listening to our comments!
  • #53
    Also, I should mention that, in combination with Mapster, the font size acts a little strangely. When you have the full map open (with borders) then size 18 is fine. But when you use the Mapster option to remove the borders (so just the shape of the zone itself is shown), the font gets a lot bigger.

    Changing it to as low as size 10 will probably help, but will probably also make it unreadable when the map is expanded again.

    But that may be more of a Mapster issue than ZLI.
  • #56
    Hey, thanks for the message.
    Is that the full map without borders, not the mini map?
    When I'm looking at the options the 'Hide Border' option is greyed out, though I can still set '(Mini) Hide Border'.
    Is there a zone I need to be in or specific options to get that enabled to see what you're seeing?

    The text size itself is scaled on the WorldMapFrame frame, so I'm not sure there is a lot I can do about it, but I would like to have a look to see if there is.
    Thanks!
  • #49
    Hello its me again.
    Sorry but i had no time to check the deDE translation.
    But now i checked it and here are some other mistakes:

    ,["Horde"] = "Horde Kontrollierte" = ,["Horde"] = "Horde kontrolliert"
    ,["PvP Combat Zone"] = "Kampfzone PvP" = ,["PvP Combat Zone"] = "PvP Kampfzone"

    Again to the Horde/Alliance controlled problem. In German translation "Horde controlled" or "Alliance controlled" sounds really ***. I think the best Words to say this are: "Horde controlled territory" or simply "Horde".
    "Horde controlled territory" is in german "Horde kontrolliertes Gebiet" an for Alliance
    "Allianz kontrolliertes Gebiet"

    And to the Stagning Area, i dont know what can i say in german.
    And i thing its the wrong term for this.

    If i understand the wikipedia page correct a Staging area is only a room to store things for a while before they will used

    That is my opinion.


  • #50
    I have forgot one mistake
    ,["MISSING ZONES ERROR"] = "FEHLER - einen oder mehrere fehlende Zonen. Rund um den Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung Cataclysm Ich bin wirklich Hilfe benötigen, mit Übersetzungen. Bitte melden Sie fehlende Zonen auf CURSE.COM gegeben sind. Wenn Sie nicht wollen, es wird nicht immer festgelegt, da ich nicht über sie weiß bekommen! :)"

    should be

    ,["MISSING ZONES ERROR"] = "FEHLER - eine oder mehrere fehlende Zonen. Rund um den Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung von Cataclysm benötige ich wirklich Hilfe mit den Übersetzungen. Bitte melden Sie fehlende Zonen auf CURSE.COM. Danke! :)"
  • #51
    Thanks, I'll update those in the next release, and I'm still reconsidering the controlled thing. Google's literal translations not good again :)

    Staging area... not really a room. It's a place where things/people are prepared/readied/organised before they are sent out to do what they are meant to do. Take an aircraft carrier for example, that is a staging area for military aircraft. AQ zone is an area you all go to prepare launch your attack on the raid. Moonglade is where druids (for example) go to prepare and go forth in their quests/aid to others. These areas themselves are not intended to be the battlefields, but from where you should be safe to group up and head out from.

    Anyway, I need a better term in other languages (possibly even changing in english) to collectively describe these zones which are non-levelling -

    Moonglade
    Ahn'Qiraj: The Fallen Kingdom
    Deadwind Pass
    GM Island

    I am taking suggestions from all, and they may or may not be used! ;)
  • #41
    Hello
    At first big thanks for this addon. Its beautiful ^^

    And there is an error in german translation, "Alliance Kontrollierte" should be "Allianz kontrolliert".

    But i think the word "controlled" can be delete in every language because its unnecessary.
    The word Horde or Alliance says all you need to know.
  • #42
    And one question.

    what do you mean with "Staging Area" can you describe to me the word
  • #43
    Hi, thanks for the message!
    Yeah, I'm coming to agree with you about the 'controlled', though not sure yet if I want to just take it off or match what the game uses with 'territory' instead... If I don't change it before the next patch I'll put in your new translation, thanks :)

    Staging Area... I had to decide on a term and I think it works in English but a couple of people have told me it doesn't really work translated to other languages.
    The wikipedia definition of staging area made me think it was appropriate:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Staging_area
    For the addon I wanted to portray 'non-levelling area', 'area of transit', or simply a zone that leads to a raid (like Ahn'Qiraj).
    Any suggestions for better deDE translation? :)
