What is the best addon to replace all the different maps?

VOTES

4

I'm trying to find a map addon that will show the mini map when I'm grouping and questing, but hide the minimap and show the zone map (small version) when I'm raiding or doing a battleground.

Is there an addon that does anything similar?

I don't mind if it shows it's own versioned map, I just don't want to have two maps open all the time, I just want one map at any given time, and I'd like it to be automatic.

Cartographer is good

I will add that in it's current state (as of 3.3.3 I believe) Cartographer is broken and does not work properly. It has not been updated in months. Please correct me if I'm wrong. – Wolfsbane (Apr 16 2010 10:56 AM)

Perhaps this should read Cartographer *was* good? :) I loved it while it worked, best map addon I ever used. – ♦♦gnarf (Apr 30 2010 3:26 AM)

I haven't found a nice replacement for cartographer either. You can go the Carbonite route and disable everything but the map - it has an option to merge with your minimap somewhere among the options. It's a bit of a memory hog so .. fair warning. You could also try Sexy Map. It's pretty and extremely customizable tho again, memory piggy. There's a fun little tutorial here that starts at around the 5 min mark. Not sure if it'll do what you like but you can give it a go!

Mapster

If you haven't tried Mapster, I would definitely take a look. It works really well for the rather simple feature set. I didn't use a lot of the more advanced cartographer features, so if you need something more complex this may not be the mod for you, but for the simpler stuff, it works really well:

Features

  • Map Style (Scale & Alpha)
  • Coordinates
  • Fog of War removal
  • Enhancement of the raid/party group icons
  • Access to the WotLK Instance Maps from anywhere!
