im currently using cartographer with the following modules:
as you can see im only using three modules, however for these modules to work i need to load Cartographer itself, a 2mb+ & increasing dependency.
i only have 512mb of ram and am already using quite a few other addons. so i was wondering, is there any possible way to make it less memory heavy, load only what is needed for those three modules? or otherwise is it possible to make the modules stand-alone? if not does anyone know any alternative addons i could use?
Do you run with embedded libs? (If you don't know the answer, then it's probably yes.) In that case, Cartographer's memory usage will include the usage of the libraries included in its folder. And yes, you need Cartographer to run those modules - those modules come packed inside Cart (and can then be unpacked) and it's a required dependency. There are other addons that will show you a foglight, you could get Atlas for maps, but Atlas takes up tons of memory, too. It's cause you're loading all of the map graphics into memory plus their loot databases. Stick with Cart if that's what you want out of an addon. Are you having issues with memory? Or are you just concerned?
