better way points module and a knowledgebase ... would complete this addon id love to use it but thoes 2 features from metamap are the only things preventing me from so..... if anyone could possible code theses lol just an idea tho :)
I second the waypoints module. :) I'm tinkering with some stuff. If I can get it working properly, I'll post it.
I'm also busy creating a knowledge base for Vendors and Trainers. I'm thinking of actually creating it's own module, and then allow other modules to use it if it's installed. Some data that might go in there would be vendors, trainers, quest givers, quest objectives, gathering, innkeepers, etc.
hm, a knowledgebase might be huuuge in terms of storage... Just think of all the text requrired to store quest information for every quest you come across...
Although, if we could have more custom minimap icons for various stuff, like vendors/innkeepers etc, that would be -very- cool.
Yeah, that's always the problem. For a knowledge base to be useful, it has to be huge. :( That's why I'm thinking of sharing it not just with other Cartographer modules, but even maybe other addons. At the moment I trying to come up with a very modular design. I need to have a chat with some of the database gurus on IRC and see if I can come up with a way to load the data on demand. Any suggestions are welcome. :)
In the meantime I will probably create a lite version for Cartographer that only contains the info that might be required to show notes and minimap icons, etc.
nice to see all the work going on....... id suggest to look at metamaps BWP and database and to see how its all set up ... metahawks addon is quite nice :).... other then that a load on demand data base would make wow run faster ie LOD it when you need to ... also it would be a great idea to use the built in addon channels for transfering data betweeen guild members.... any who just some more ideas .... im currently just fin my new 2.0 UI off .... i havent had time to work on wow... but hopefully ill have more now and i can get all my own addons updated, ill check back and see how yall doing, and im more then happy to help out..... just post\msg me on here
